THE MISUNDERSTOOD GOD tells the truth about who the Creator is. This book analyzes what religion says about God's heart and personality and measures it up to what God calls Himself: Love. It simplifies a generation's tangled perceptions of God by taking a journey through the sixteen aspects of love described in one of the most well-known Bible passages in the world: 1 Corinthians 13, also known as "the love chapter." So many Christians have been bombarded with confusing teachings and doctrines that their understanding of God resembles a tightly tangled ball of Christmas tree lights. This book takes that twisted mess and replaces it with one soft, warm light of truth that anyone can embrace: God is love.
Scholar Amy-Jill Levine helps Christians and Jews understand the "Jewishness" of Jesus so that their appreciation of him deepens and a greater interfaith dialogue can take place. Levine's humor and informed truth-telling provokes honest conversation and debate about how Christians and Jews should understand Jesus, the New Testament, and each other.

Since the publication of the first edition, the number of unique heritable mtDNA mutations recognized as being associated with bioenergetic dysfunction, cell death and disease has grown. Likewise, our understanding of the basic biology of somatic mtDNA mutations continues to improve. In Mitochondrial DNA: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, specialists from eight countries share their expertise, providing detailed protocols for studying many aspects of mtDNA. The volume is divided into three sections, which cover the transduction of information from mtDNA to functionally active respiratory complexes, mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production as well as mtDNA damage and its repair, and the identification and quantification of heteroplasmic mtDNA mutations. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyTM series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes sections, highlighting tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and authoritative, Mitrochondrial DNA: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition promises to aid researchers in further expanding our knowledge of this vital area of cell biology.
As age related diseases increase in prevalence and impact more significantly on medical resources it is imperative to understand these diseases and the mechanisms behind their progression. New research has stimulated a growing interest in mitochondrial involvement in neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis and the mechanisms which lead from mitochondrial dysfunction to neurodegeneration. Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Neurodegenerative Disorders brings together contributions from leaders in the field internationally on the various ways in which mitochondrial dysfunction contributes to the pathogenesis of these diseases, guiding the reader through the basic functions of mitochondria and the mechanisms that lead to their dysfunction, to the consequences of this dysfunction on neuronal function before finishing with the modelling of these disorders and discussion of new potential therapeutic targets. Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Neurodegenerative Disorders provides an accessible, authoritative guide to this important area for neurologists; research and clinical neuroscientists; neuropathologists; and residents with an interest in clinical research.
Willie Mays's impossible over-the-head catch of Vic Wertz's bid for a game-winning home run in the 1954 World Series . . . Joe DiMaggio's effortless veto of Hank Greenberg's 450-foot shot at Yankee Stadium in 1939 . . . Joe Rudi's ninth-inning climb up the left-field wall at Cincinnati in the 1972 Series to rob Denis Menke of a game-winning triple . . . Brooks Robinson's diving, scrambling stops against Cincinnati in the 1970 World Series . . . Graig Nettles's defying gravity in the 1978 World Series as he robbed the Dodgers of at least five runs in game three . . . Sam Rice's swan dive into the Washington bleachers in 1925 to rob Earl Smith of a game-winning homer . . . There is almost nothing in baseball more exciting than a great fielding play-a climb up the outfield wall, a diving catch, an acrobatic stop, a clutch throw. Still, through most of the history of baseball, players and fans alike tended to be less than "enthusiastic about glove work. Frenchy Bordagaray, free spirit and sometime Brooklyn Dodger outfielder, was chasing a long fly ball one afternoon when his cap blew off. If you don't think priorities have shifted in the last half century, note that Frenchy first went back to retrieve his cap and then continued after the ball. When Jake Beckley, a left-handed first baseman, cocked his arm, turn-of-the-century fans sitting behind third base ducked. So did the fans behind first. Jack Chapman, one of the few outfielders in the mid-nineteenth century who could consistently catch fly balls, was hailed in sporting journals as "Death to Flying Things." Yes, fans screamed with delight whenever an outfielder succeeded in catching a high fly. Despite the claims of old-timers and their general criticism of today's super-athlete, the player of today is bigger, smarter, faster, stronger, better nourished, and better instructed than his counterpart of fifty years ago. The player of yesteryear would be blown away in today's high-powered game, and nowhere is the disparity more pronounced than in fielding and defensive strategy. A position-by-position look at the best and the worst, Mitts is a baseball fan's tribute to what has traditionally been the most neglected aspect of the game-defense. Rich in the lore of fielding gems, Mitts is a celebration of baseball's newest glamour figures-the men with the gold gloves.

He still loves her, but he can't have her. Not when he is hell-bent on recovering from his injury and rejoining the fight overseas. Not even if Mitzi's love proves to be the most powerful force of all...
