In this work, the author brings the book of Bereshit (Genesis) to life by his idiomatic, easily understood translation of the Masoretic text. Dr. Friedman takes many ancient Hebrew idioms and unfolds them and their significance for the reader. Additionally, the reader enters into the flow of the text through his commentary, one that is based on unique Jewish approaches to understanding this foundational biblical book. This translation is both scholarly and artistic; upholding the holiness of the text while casting new looks at it, as is done when assessing the life of Yakov (Jacob). There is a special appendix to the translation and commentary that is found in chapter 37, when the life of Joseph is featured. In this fresh, insightful translation and commentary, the reader will enjoy immersing himself or herself in the Bible's classic first book, the 'Book of the Beginning.'

The Great Beginning of Citeaux

A Narrative of the Beginning of the Cistercian Order

In the closing decades of the twelfth century, the Cistercian Order had become an important ecclesiastical and economic power in Europe. Yet it had lost its influential spokesman, Bernard of Clairvaux, and as the century drew to a close, religious sensibilities were changing. The new mendicant orders, the Franciscans and the Dominicans, and the impulses they embodied were to shift the center of gravity in Christian religious life for centuries to come. It was in this transitional period that Conrad of Eberbach gradually—between the 1180s and 1215—compiled the Exordium magnum cisterciense: The Great Beginning of Cîteaux. It is a book of history and lore, often with miraculous stories, meant to continue a great spiritual tradition, and it is also a book meant to justify and repair the Order. The Exordium magnum was in part an effort to provide a historical and formative context for those who were to be Cistercians in the thirteenth century. Conrad's combination of a historical sensibility and the edifying exempla makes the Exordium magnum a remarkably innovative book. Its unique combination of genres—narratio and exempla—is conceivable only within the intellectual world of the twelfth or early thirteenth centuries, before exempla collections came to be complied solely for edification or use in sermons. The Great Beginning of Cîteaux is a revealing book and an excellent place to begin more detailed study of the Cistercian Order between 1174 and the middle of the thirteenth century.

Recent years have witnessed significant discoveries of texts and artefacts relevant to the study of the Old and New Testaments and remarkable shifts in scholarly methods of study. The present volume mirrors the increasing specialization of Old Testament studies, including the Hebrew and Greek Bibles, and reflects rich research activity that has unfolded over the last four decades in Pentateuch theory, Septuagint scholarship, Qumran studies and early Jewish exegesis of biblical texts. The second half of the volume discusses the period running from the New Testament to 600, including chapters on the Coptic, Syriac and Latin bibles, the 'Gnostic' use of the scriptures, pagan engagement with the Bible, the use of the Bible in Christian councils and in popular and non-literary culture. A fascinating in-depth account of the reception of the Bible in the earliest period of its history.

A Book of Uncommon Prayer is a collection of spiritual and devotional texts, drawn from both inside and outside the limits of the world's religious traditions. Intended for believers and non-believers alike, it is organized with attention to the occasions of prayer, prayerful thought, and meditation. A Book of Uncommon Prayer is built around the idea that in an age marked at once by religious violence and the falling away of orthodox religious observance in the wealthy countries of the West, genuine spiritual curiosity is on the rise, and may be fed by a book that recognizes - and demonstrates - the universality of prayer. 'This anthology offers rewarding material, well researched, often surprising and infinitely worthwhile' Irish Times 'This excellent Penguin edition should rest handily within reach of anybody with an interest in the mystical or the ethereal' Sunday Tribune

The Law of Development Cooperation

A Comparative Analysis of the World Bank, the EU and Germany

Development interventions are agreed by states and international organisations which administer public development funds of huge proportions. They have done so with debatable success, but, unlike the good governance of recipients, the rules applying to donors have hitherto received little scrutiny. This analysis of the normative structures and conceptual riddles of development co-operation argues that development co-operation is increasingly structured by legal rules and is therefore no longer merely a matter of politics, economics or ethics. By focusing on the rules of development co-operation, it puts forward a new perspective on the institutional law dealing with the process, instruments and organisation of this co-operation. Placing the law in its theoretical and political context, it provides the first comparative study on the laws of foreign aid as a central field of global public policy and asks how accountability, autonomy and human rights can be preserved while combating poverty.

The Beginnings of Piezoelectricity, the first history of the subject, exhaustively examines how diverse influences led to the discovery of the phenomenon in 1880, and how they shaped subsequent research until the consolidation of an empirical and theoretical knowledge of the field circa 1895. Shaul Katzir’s historical account shows that this ‘mundane’ science was an intriguing intellectual and practical enterprise, which involved originality, surprises and controversies.

A Book of Animal Life

Charles G.D. Roberts’s fame rests on a series of very popular animal stories. Charles G.D. Roberts was a distinguished writer of his time who published more than forty volumes of poetry, romance fiction, and nature writing – making him one of the most popular writers of his time. He pioneered the animal story in which he went beyond surface elements of nature and endowed his animal "characters" with qualities of feeling and intelligence that brought them closer to their human cousins. Roberts’ career as a writer transcended his Canadian roots and he was internationally known and popular in America and England. What was particularly appreciated by his readers was Roberts’ close observation of nature and his efforts to endow animals with emotions and understand their mental processes. By 1932, Kindred of the Wild had been re-issued twenty-three times, attesting to its ongoing appeal. Roberts was knighted for his contribution to literature and his services in the Allied cause in the First World War.

Commandments of Christ

Preface This book is like a companion to the New Testament; it can be called the New Testament companion. This book seeks to answer the most asked questions about God and his word. It tells of the things that we accept as truth without investigating their validity or their originality and of what existed to cause us to go astray. We take a born-come-see attitude, so we do not question it to see where it came from and what was said at the beginning. We receive the Gospel like the days of Noah. It is like a telephone game where you call somebody and tell them something. They call someone else and repeat what you said. By the time it reaches the fifth person, it is a completely different statement. That is how we teach a false Gospel. The wrong understanding is spoken so many times that we believe it to be true. We accept too many things without investigating where they began. We need to learn from Dr. Luke. Most honorable Theophilus: Many people have written accounts about the events that took place among us. They used as their source material the reports circulating among us from the early disciples and other eyewitnesses of what God has done in fulfillment of his promises. Having carefully investigated all of these accounts from the beginning, I have decided to write a careful summary for you, to reassure you of the truth of all you were taught. (Luke 1:14 NLT) Daily Bread Give us this day our daily bread. (Matt. 6:11) We are told to say this prayer, but we never questioned about it. Most of us assume. Many times a day, we feed our bodies through our mouths, and it goes down to our stomach; we need to be aware of feeding our souls. Man doth not live by bread only. (Deut. 8:3 KJV) We need to feed our souls from our eyes and ears to our brain. Yeshua says, Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entered in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? (Matt. 15:1617 KJV) The bread mentioned in Matthew 6:11 is to feed the brain from our eyes and ears to our brains. Christ wants us to ask our Father for more of him that we can be more like him. Deuteronomy 8:3, the second statement, is saying to the Israelis that real life comes by obeying every command of God. That is where Yeshua's commandment comes in. Yeshua says, "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15 KJV). You cannot keep commandments if you do not know them. The only commands spoken of are 613 commands in the mitzvah. Those mentioned in Exodus 20:317 are for everyone. I did my best trying to find the commands of Christ and list them book by book; you should read them from your Bible, which will help you to be familiar with the word of God. In Bible class, it would be good to study them in order to get acquainted with them. In Christianity, pastors say you should read your Bible to become like Jesus. If you do not have a guide, And he said how can I, except some man should guide me? (Acts 8:31 KJV) You could read through the Bible one hundred times and still couldn't act like Christ. Christ told us what to look f∠? if we find them and keep them, we will be like him. Christ says, "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love" (John 15:10 KJV). There are three sets of commands. One, a set of ten, was given by the Father and written by his own fingers; the other 603 were given to Moses to write and be given to Israel. These were nailed to the cross when Christ died. And the other set was given by Christ through the Holy Ghost, which included a repeat of some of what was given to Israel. Christ wants to see himself in us. Before the thermometer existed, when a goldsmith wanted to know if the metal was hot, he would look to see if he could see himself in the melted metal. If he couldn't see him in the metal, the metal was not hot enough. When Christ can see his words manifesting in us, he wil

Praying the Bible: The Book of Prayers

Everyone learns to walk before running, and every believer learns to vocalize prayer before moving into sustained deep silences of communion with God. By Jesus' example, we know that He prayed the Scriptures aloud. Praying the Bible takes an old concept, the prayer book, and gives it a modern twist: complete passages of Scripture laid out in sections of distinct prayer genres. Eight categories with eighty-eight prayers enable readers to quickly reference the prayers of the prophets, the wisdom prayers, the prayers of Jesus, the apostolic prayers, and more. The introductions to each section expand on each specific type of prayer and also include detailed instruction on how to pray that specific section. This is a prayer tool for both the novice prayer and the seasoned intercessor that provides discipline and focus.

Marriage was created and designed by the Creator. God, not man, made marriage. God designed marriage between one man and one woman, uniting them in holy matrimony. The two are to come togethe-r as one flesh in a joyous and fulfilling relationship. Marriage is covenant, commitment, and companionship meant for a lifetime. Gloria Ward's insightful sequel to "Eve, Get In Your Place," is a call for Christian husbands to take their rightful leadership positions in the home. It provides biblical principles on the husband's role and responsibility in the marriage. Just as God made marriage, He also established a divine order for the home. God commands that husbands love their wives as Jesus loved the church and gave Himself for it. Wives are to submit unto their husbands as unto the Lord. It is not about the husband being superior. Rather, a husband's authority lies in being an obedient, responsible leader/servant to his family. Submission does not mean that a wife is slave to her husband. Rather, she is submitting to her Lord and obeying His direction for her home. The Bible, the inspired Word of God, gives instructions on how the husband and wife are to treat each other. Since God is the designer, why not try marriage His way before heading to divorce court? God hates divorce. Dr. Ward will help you discover what God has said on the subject of marriage. Knowing God's perspective will help both husband and wife to properly function in what will be a blissful union.
