The New Testament In Context
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.
A Mistress Abroad
1953 and over half a decade following the war it is a good time to undertake National Service. But for Jean, the lure of working overseas means she will volunteer as a teacher with the RAF. Starting in Egypt, Jean spends the next five years (including a renewal of contract in 1956) travelling Africa and the Middle East in a career that would, as prophesised by a fortune teller at the village fete, "... seem like a holiday."
Told in an engaging style A Mistress Abroad brings to life that time of optimism, with the vibrant and revolutionary 60s only a few years away, when a woman like Jean could enjoy and experience her early working life amidst the fascination of other cultures and the allure of pilots and planes.
For those curious about the period or who would like, in part, to reminisce, this book will be an enjoyable read.
