This is a comprehensive and essential introductory textbook on the New Testament by an eminent professor in the field."The New Testament in Context" is the fruit of a scholarly life teaching the New Testament to undergraduate students.George Shillington, now Emeritus Professor at Canadian Mennonite University, has written a textbook on the New Testament which stresses the varying social, rhetorical and theological contexts of these twenty-seven texts. He introduces the book by emphasizing the importance of 'context' for reading 'texts'. The discussion then moves onto a description of the socio-rhetorical and theological approach, illustrated by exploring a text from one of Paul's letters. The usefulness of a socio-rhetorical reading is often limited by neglecting to recognize the theological aspect of a text. Shillington's textbook addresses this tendency by never losing sight of the theological dimension. The discussion is then broadened out to explore the larger context of the New Testament world within which the various documents were written.In addition to leading the students into the texture of the texts, Shillington encourages them to engage in interpretation, e.g. for writing an exegetical essay on a given text. The terms of reference are defined along the way, and different schools of thought on given subjects are brought to light. Each chapter concludes with suggestions for further research on the particular material.

From the Introduction.
The insistent demand of humanity for a commodity does not often long remain unsupplied. Science usually not only meets the demand; but often anticipating a need, proceeds to create a demand. Occasionally, however, she lags behind due to some obstacle which seems unsurmountable.
Then this country wakes up to the enormity of its fire loss (the highest of all of the principal nations), there will doubtless be a demand for a better system of construction. Already in certain quarters there has been an awakening, its demand recognized and fairly well supplied, but in other fields there still remains much to be desired. The mere ability to meet the demand is not always sufficient. It must be so economically met that the application will become general, else the demand will continue. Referring to the before mentioned "better system of construction", which in this case may be interpreted to mean fire-proof construction, we find that in the lighter types of buildings its adoption has not become general, from which we may conclude that the demand has not been met.
It scarcely needs to be mentioned that this system demands incombustible materials. Of these we have but two in general use, namely, burned clay products and concrete, neither of which is suitable for carrying tensile stresses. We must add therefore other material, usually steel, for taking these stresses, and protect it with incombustible materials; or else resist the force by stresses which are consistent with the material. The writer believes that the chief problem today in fire-proof construction is not the protection of structural members so much as the construction of a light and economical floor of incombustible materials. The solution of this problem will involve either a reduction in the amount of the materials now used, or the use of a new and cheaper material. It would seem that, through the chemist and geologist, we should; be so familiar with materials suitable for building operations that relief need not be looked for in the direction of new materials; if so, then we are compelled to adopt the alternative of reducing the amount of those now used. To accomplish this will necessitate a more advantageous use of the materials, for the present working stresses may not be increased with safety.

Written in an engaging, easy-to-read style, this reference offers a comprehensive discussion of various stress categories utilizing over 150 annotated, instructive examples. An overview of the theory of elasticity is presented along with techniques governing plastics design. From simple press-fits to matrix structural analysis, the concept of stress category analysis is introduced and utilized to discuss a wide range of practical problems more compactly. What to do with computed stress is the most pressing issue addressed in Applied Stress Analysis of Plastics , as Krishnamachari presents fresh methodologies to deal with these problems effectively. Stressing understanding over theory, Applied Stress Analysis of Plastics makes the perfect desktop reference for design and test engineers, or as an intermediate textbook for students.


Testifying Before Congress

RRP $381.99

When Governor Mitch Daniels (Indiana) compared testifying before Congress to getting a root canal, he was being polite. Sitting vulnerably at a witness table under hot television lights while members of the House or Senate stare down at you from above is not just intimidating; it can wreck your career, your company, and your credibility if you say the wrong thing. As a practical guide to assist witnesses and their organizations in preparing and delivering Congressional testimony, this book is designed for use by anyone or any organization called upon to testify before a committee of Congress, and for those who are providing assistance in preparing the testimony and the witness. This book serves as a guide through the unique maze of the Congressional hearings process for virtually any witness or organization, including federal departments and agencies, the federal judiciary, members and staff of the legislative branch itself, associations, corporations, the military service branches, NGOs, private and voluntary organizations (PVOs), public interest entities, state and local governmental officials and institutions, and individuals who are chosen to appear as a witness before Congress for any reason on any topic. Similarly, in the world of academics and scholarship, this reference work can be helpful to scholars and writers in think-tanks and research organizations, as well as to faculty, researchers and students engaged in the study of law, business, government, politics, political science and the legislative processes of government. This book can also serve as a reliable reference source and helpful tool for law, lobbying, government relations, accounting, and other public policy-related service industry professionals who are involved with the Congressional hearings process on behalf of their clients', their customers' and their own public policy, legislative and government relations interests. "Testifying Before Congress" demystifies the Congressional hearings process, and assists witnesses and their organizations to be well-prepared when appearing before a Congressional committee to testify. The principles in this book may also be used by those preparing for hearings before federal agencies and international tribunals, as well as state and local governmental bodies. However, the major thrust of this work focuses on the distinct Congressional hearing process and its major elements. More than 20 endorsers--who include one current and one former governor, a city mayor, corporate CEOs and industry leaders, directors of top law and lobbying organizations, the Chairman of Bank of America, several past and present top government officials and agency directors, a bar association president, law school deans and university leaders, and heads of non-governmental organizations (see all endorsements at the book's web site)-- strongly recommend this book for lobbyists, executives, associations, government officials, academics, and virtually anyone who is called to testify before Congress. ""Testifying Before Congress" is the best "how to" resource that I have seen -- it is well-researched, experience-based, and thoughtfully written, with a dash of humor added for good measure."- Samuel M. Davis, Dean of the School of Law, The University of Mississippi Full Table of Contents and endorsements at www.TCNTBC.com
