Acknowledgments So many people other than the author or editor help in the completion of a book project. Some contribute in a direct way, while others help out in a more supportive role. I would like to acknowledge the assistance of the many people who worked to make this book project a reality. First and foremost, I would like to thank the contributors to this volume. They include some of the leading scholars and thinkers in the field and have been a stellar team to provide the reader with state-of-the-art and evidence- based reflection and scholarship. Second, it is important to recognize the wonderful people at ABC-CLIO who published this book. Most especially, many thanks to editor Debbie Carvalko for her efforts not only with this book project but also with other book projects that I have published with her assistance during the past few decades. Finally, I would like to thank my wife, Lori, and son, Zach, who are daily reminders that life is good and sacred and that I am blessed beyond words to have them both in my life.
