Bitten by a Camel

Leaving Church, Finding God

Kent Dobson climbed Mount Sinai in search of the God who had eluded him. Instead he got bitten by a camel. Dobson was climbing the ladder of Christianity, too: a worship leader, teacher, and ultimately senior pastor of one of the largest and most prominent churches in America. But he was growing disillusioned with the faith, at least inside the shell of organized religion. One Sunday morning, he preached to his congregation, “I don’t know what the word God even means anymore.” He soon left the church, but his quest for God became more intense than ever. In Bitten by a Camel, Dobson deconstructs much of what passes as Christianity, but on the foundation of Jesus and the Bible, he reconstructs a faith that is fulfilling, life-giving, and true—true to himself and true to God. Dobson’s message is funny, poignant, and winsome. And it is ultimately, like the message of Jesus himself, hopeful.

Facing the Limits of the Law

Many legal experts no longer share an unbounded trust in the potential of law to govern society efficiently and responsibly. They often experience the 'limits of the law', as they are confronted with striking inadequacies in their legal toolbox, with inner inconsistencies of the law, with problems of enforcement and obedience, and with undesired side-effects, and so on. The contributors to this book engage in the challenging task of making sense of this experience. Against the background of broader cultural transformations (such as globalisation, new technologies, individualism and cultural diversity), they revisit a wide range of areas of the law and map different types of limits in relation to some basic functions and characteristics of the law. Additionally, they offer a set of strategies to manage justifiably law's limits, such as dedramatising law's limits, conceptual refinement ('constructivism'), striking the right balance between different functions of the law, seeking for complementarity between law and other social practices.

“ When Claude Tarba showed off a family heirloom in a crowded Arabian restaurant in Melbourne, that simple act of pride among friends didn’t go unnoticed. It set in motion a journey through the little known high mountain country of The Yemen; then on to the Italianate City of Asmara in the Ancient land of Eritrea and a hi-jacking, which landed him in Western Turkey. Eventually after a number of risky adventures that took him to the far southern reaches of Egypt, he found himself committed to a treasure quest which if proved successful would change the future perception of the human race for the next couple of millennia. Clues uncovered in the Tomb of the God King Tutankhamen entrance our unwitting hero and his new friends, committing them all through something more than curiosity to a trail of intrigue, with villains popping up everywhere, intent on stopping them from achieving their main goal, the installation of Claude as an honorary new Pharaoh. Despite foiling several attempts on their lives, Claude and his companions then have to contend with another scoundrel and his giant of a servant, who have their eyes on the treasure whatever it may turn out to be. The story takes us back into the ancient world of 18th Dynasty Egypt where we meet the legendary King Solomon who with his son and heir, plan and set the stepping stones that may only be discovered and followed by a future generation worthy enough to restore the glory and spiritual beliefs of the Egypt that once was. Not only is the narrative one full of thrills and unusual situations, it is also transports the reader into the colourful life of contemporary and ancient Egypt. The unexpected climax will have everyone thinking, ‘What really did happen thousands of years ago to kick-start civilisation as we know it today?’”
