Many people assume that becoming a serious student of the Bible merely requires diligent study of English Bible translations, but biblical scholarship is much more complex. Is There a Doctor in the House? demonstrates what it takes to be a responsible Bible teacher, a well-published Bible scholar, or even a good student of the Bible: exacting knowledge of biblical languages and the languages in which most Bible scholarship is done; a love for history and archaeology; a sensitivity for literature and literary genres; and an understanding of theology, ethics, and ancient religions and philosophies. In one sense, every Bible scholar has to be a general practitioner—the foundation of biblical scholarship must be both broad and well built. Through the course of this book, Witherington invites would-be Bible experts to pursue excellence for the sake of the Bible’s world-altering message. From students considering a Ph.D. to lay Bible teachers, Is There a Doctor in the House? promises to be an informative, engaging, and often humorous resource.

His common sense advice includes how to choose a personal physician, how best to deal with common pains and fears, an easy, non-technical explanation of how our bodies function, and eight handy guidelines that can assist you in maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

While growing up in Trinidad, Annaise's longing to be a visual artist is influenced by the vibrant river scenes in her village, as well as the iridescent swirling colors she finds in the Jouvert streets of San Fernando during the Carnival season. Her relationships and her experiences open her eyes to the fierce and vulnerable edges of life and beauty in the Caribbean. As an adult Annaise goes to New York and begins to perceive a contradiction between the world of gallery art in Manhattan and the world of Caribbean art that she finds in Brooklyn. A visit with relatives in Toronto unearths old family secrets, hidden hostilities, and gives her a new understanding of immigrant family relations as well as art. Annaise goes to Trinidad to reconnect with her mother, and there she gains deeper insights into Indo-Caribbean culture through the feminine energies and rhythms that surround her and inspire her art. She returns to New York where she finds love and kinship in the Caribbean and African-American communities in Brooklyn, and she discovers the path that she must follow in order to create the jouvert arts of the street and the earth.

Finally, it addresses the mysterious, attractive powers the soul exerts during life-threatening events.
In this timely book, Jonathan D. Moreno takes up some of the most important questions in clinical ethics today. Moreno's view is that moral values emerge out of human experience, a view that creates a compelling conceptual framework for bioethics. To begin, Moreno recalls his experience as a hospital ethicist and how that shaped his understanding of what bioethics is about, both as theory and practice. His focus then turns to a difficult moral paradox: the need to advance medical knowledge by using human beings in research. His account of the way American medicine has reached a strong protectionist approach to managing this paradox leads to discussions of vulnerable groups whose circumstances demand that we reflect on the way this issue should be approached in the future. Moreno then takes up the historical and ethical role of the national security dimensions of human experimentation. His account casts a drastically different light on the origins of modern bioethics, especially on the central document of modern human experimentation, the Nuremberg Code. In the last section, Moreno pushes the bioethics envelope in a naturalistic examination of emerging values concerning the neurosciences and bioterrorism. Is There an Ethicist in the House? tackles difficult issues with clarity and insight. The book will be welcomed not only by medical professionals but also by lay readers who seek to understand the philosophical foundations of contemporary medical ethics.

Dareese "Dollar Bill" Blake is one of those bad guys that women love to hate. In an effort to escape the hood life and dabble in the good life, Dollar quickly grows from a small pup to a big dawg. After carefully critiquing the game, he chooses a concrete type of hustle that he's sure will offer him an early retirement from the workforce. If you ask his home girl, Thomasena, she'd say it's been nothing but love for Dollar since day one. In Dollar's eyes, however, Thomasena is just one of the boys, so it's no surprise that he tends to overlook her for every other piece of tail that wags by him. When Dollar calls on Thomasena to help him in the ultimate come-up, will she be able to put her feelings of rejection on the back burner, or will Dollar get burned?
