Mums at the Table magazine editor Melody Tan talks about how an 18-month-old ministry in Australia is targeting non-Adventist mothers of young children, working to create community in a virtual village with a panel lifestyle TV show, social media channels and a monthly magazine.

Nathan Brown, prolific reader and writer and Book Editor at the Signs Publishing Company in Australia, talks about his latest book, a collection of essays focused on justice issues in a biblical and Adventist context.

What do we do when convictions become so strong that other points of view are not allowed? 

A new children’s book aims to introduce kids to a variety of people from different faiths, cultures, and time periods.

Editor Emily Long dreamed of creating an Adventist youth culture magazine when she was a teen, 17 years ago. Now she is publishing 71.5, a platform for Adventist young people to talk to each other and choose the conversation, without any preaching by the older folks.

Question: You are the editor of 71.5, an Adventist "youth culture" magazine. Where does the name come from?

Hacksaw Ridge co-producer Steve Longi is publishing a book that tells the story of what happened to Desmond Doss before he got to that ridge. From history buffs who want to dig deeper to young people who might not have been able to watch an R-rated movie, this short book offers Doss's story to an even wider audience.
