This special and remarkablebook, The Seventh-day Sabbath and its Redemptive Function in Gods Everlasting Covenant of Grace by A.M. Simataa addresses topical issues in the Bible quite pertinent to the 21st Century Christianity. The author takes a defensive approach of the gospel and brings to the surface some of the least understood teachings of the Bible. Although written from a Seventh-day Adventists perspective, people of differing religious background and persuasions will fi nd this book very instructive. If you have been looking for a book that pains takingly discusses the Gospel seriously and biblically this is the book you have been searching for. Some of the topics featured in the book include: The Truth about the Bible Sabbath The Judgment of the Living Heavenly New Jerusalem; The Marriage Supper of the Lamband the Rapture The Remnant Church in the Parables Mr A.M. Simataa teaches at a High School in Windhoek, Namibia. He likes sharing the Gospel with others and spends some of his spare time witnessing to others. The central role of the Seventh-day Sabbath in the Redemption of our race is the least understood topic in the Bible today. Most believers have even dismissed its relevance to todays Christianity. However, the truth is that the Sabbath is at the heart of Christs work to save human beings in accordance with Gods plan. The Sabbath is so central to the work of atonement that Christ is referred to in the Bible as the Lord of the Sabbath. The issue of the Sabbath will become pertinent as we near the End, and every human being will be required to take a stand in the confl ict involving the Sabbath question. This book will plant your feet on a solid foundation.

A Discerning Eye is an anthology of some of the finest and most lasting essays by a great critic-historian of Early Italian painting, Richard Offner. Its contents span the Florentine fourteenth century and thus compose a kind of portrait album of some of its most notable painters between the Gothic and Renaissance eras, from the Magdalen Master in the thirteenth century to Masaccio in the early fifteenth. Each essay contains insights that are as incisive, fresh, and evocative today as when they were first written. The essays are illustrated using Offner&’s original photographs supplemented by new or additional photographs when dictated by the material or when the reader might be better helped to see the relationship between Offner&’s analytical prose and a given image. This book reintroduces Offner and places him in the wider context of art-historical writing to reassess his work and underscore what his writings have to offer art historians working today. Three interpretive essays approach Offner from distinct but complementary perspectives: historiographical, philosophical, and biographical. Reassessments of such figures as Erwin Panofsky and Millard Meiss aid the ongoing debate about what art history is and how it ought to be practiced. The reader is asked to reconsider not merely the value but also the philosophical foundation of connoisseurship as a method of investigation and its compatibility with other methods.

"Essentials in Ophthalmology" is a new review series covering all of ophthalmology categorized in eight subspecialties. It will be published quarterly, thus each subspecialty will be reviewed biannually. Given the multiplicity of medical publications already available, why is a new series needed? Consider that the half-life of medical knowledge is estimated to be around 5 years. Moreover, it can be as long as 8 years between the first description of a medical innovation in a peer-reviewed scientific journal and publication in a medical textbook. A series that narrows this time span between journal and textbook would provide a more rapid and efficient transfer of medical knowledge into clinical practice, and enhance care of our patients.

The question "Where do we come from?" has fascinated philosophers, scientists, and artists for generations. This book reorients the question of the matrix as a place where everything comes from (chora, womb, incubator) by recasting it in terms of acts of "matrixial/maternal hospitality" producing space and matter of and for the other. Irina Aristarkhova theorizes such hospitality with the potential to go beyond tolerance in understanding self/other relations. Building on and critically evaluating a wide range of historical and contemporary scholarship, she applies this theoretical framework to the science, technology, and art of ectogenesis (artificial womb, neonatal incubators, and other types of generation outside of the maternal body) and proves the question "Can the machine nurse?" is critical when approaching and understanding the functional capacities and failures of incubating technologies, such as artificial placenta. Aristarkhova concludes with the science and art of male pregnancy, positioning the condition as a question of the hospitable man and newly defined fatherhood and its challenge to the conception of masculinity as unable to welcome the other.
