Engaging with C. H. Dodd on the Gospel of John

by Tom Thatcher Catrin H. Williams

C. H. Dodd's Historical Tradition in the Fourth Gospel, published in 1963, marked a milestone in New Testament research and has become a standard resource for the study of John. Historically biblical scholars have concentrated on the Synoptic Gospels: Matthew, Mark and Luke. However, Dodd's book encouraged scholars to take John seriously as a source for the life of Jesus. This volume both reflects upon and looks beyond Dodd's writings to address the implications, limitations and potential of his groundbreaking research and its programmatic approach to charting a course for future research on the Gospel of John. Leading biblical scholars demonstrate the recent surge of interest in John's distinctive witness to Jesus, and also in Dodd's work as the harbinger of advancements in the study of the Fourth Gospel. This volume will be invaluable to all those studying the New Testament, Johannine theology and the history of the early Church.

Engendering Genre: The Works of Margaret Atwood

by Reingard M. Nischik

In Engendering Genre, renowned Margaret Atwood scholar Reingard M. Nischik reveals the relationship between gender and genre in Atwood's works. The author approaches Atwood's oeuvre by genre - poetry, short stories, novels, criticism - and examines them individually. She explores how gender issues influence each of them and how Atwood has developed these genres to be gender-sensitive in both their content and form. She argues that gender and genre are inherently complicit in Atwood's work: they converge to critique the intrinsically gender-biased designs of traditional genres. This combination of gender and genre results in the recognizable Atwoodian style that blurs and blends the boundaries of conventional genres, exploring them in new ways. The book concludes with an interview with Margaret Atwood on her career, titled "From Survivalwoman to Literary Icon".

The Engine 2 Diet: The Texas Firefi ghter's 28-Day Save-Your-Life Plan That Lowers Cholesterol and Burns Away the Pounds

by Rip Esselstyn

As a fireman Rip Esselstyn has helped people and saved lives, but with his ENGINE 2 DIET plan he will help save lives on a much larger scale. A world-class professional triathlete-turned-fireman, as well as the son, grandson and great-grandson of renowned physicians, Rip Esselstyn knows how to live a healthy lifestyle. So, when he learned that one of his fellow Engine 2 firefighter's cholesterol level was dangerously high, he immediately went into action. First, he created THE ENGINE 2 DIET, a 28-day health and weight loss program. Next, he enlisted not only his at-risk friend, but the entire firehouse to follow the plan. Everyone lost weight (some more than 20 pounds!), lowered their cholesterol and improved their overall health. Encouraged, Rip went on to further prove the effectiveness of his plan through a citywide study-and the results were even more amazing! In this easy-to-follow, 28-day program, readers are given a choice of two plans; the Fire Cadet Plan begins with a "flexitarian" approach to eating that includes a nutrient-rich, mostly plant-based diet featuring fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, some fish and chicken, and the other, the Firefighter Plan, is all plant-based. To ensure every reader's success, THE ENGINE 2 DIET also includes recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, cooking tips, and a firefighter-inspired exercise program to boost metabolism, build strength and endurance.

Engineering Culture: Control and Commitment in a High-Tech Corporation

by Gideon Kunda

Engineering Culture is an award-winning ethnography of the engineering division of a large American high-tech corporation. Now, this influential book--which has been translated into Japanese, Italian, and Hebrew--has been revised to bring it up to date. In Engineering Culture, Gideon Kunda offers a critical analysis of an American company's well-known and widely emulated "corporate culture. " Kunda uses detailed descriptions of everyday interactions and rituals in which the culture is brought to life, excerpts from in-depth interviews and a wide variety of corporate texts to vividly portray managerial attempts to design and impose the culture and the ways in which it is experienced by members of the organization. The company's management, Kunda reveals, uses a variety of methods to promulgate what it claims is a non-authoritarian, informal, and flexible work environment that enhances and rewards individual commitment, initiative, and creativity while promoting personal growth. The author demonstrates, however, that these pervasive efforts mask an elaborate and subtle form of normative control in which the members' minds and hearts become the target of corporate influence. Kunda carefully dissects the impact this form of control has on employees' work behavior and on their sense of self. In the conclusion written especially for this edition, Kunda reviews the company's fortunes in the years that followed publication of the first edition, reevaluates the arguments in the book, and explores the relevance of corporate culture and its management today.

Engineering in K-12 Education: Understanding the Status and Improving the Prospects

by National Academy of Engineering National Research Council of the National Academies

Engineering education in K-12 classrooms is a small but growing phenomenon that may have implications for engineering and also for the other "STEM" subjects--science, technology, and mathematics. Specifically, engineering education may improve student learning and achievement in science and mathematics, increase awareness of engineering and the work of engineers, boost youth interest in pursuing engineering as a career, and increase the technological literacy of all students. The teaching of STEM subjects in U.S. schools must be improved in order to retain U.S. competitiveness in the global economy and to develop a workforce with the knowledge and skills to address technical and technological issues. Engineering in K-12 Education reviews the scope and impact of engineering education today and makes several recommendations to address curriculum, policy, and funding issues. The book also analyzes a number of K-12 engineering curricula in depth and discusses what is known from the cognitive sciences about how children learn engineering-related concepts and skills. Engineering in K-12 Education will serve as a reference for science, technology, engineering, and math educators, policy makers, employers, and others concerned about the development of the country's technical workforce. The book will also prove useful to educational researchers, cognitive scientists, advocates for greater public understanding of engineering, and those working to boost technological and scientific literacy.

Each inscription defies translation. Yet all are heartbreakingly beautiful. And for planet Earth, on the brink of disaster, they may hold the only key to survival for the entire human race.

The Engines of God (Academy Series, Book 1)

by Jack Mcdevitt

Jack McDevitt's Academy series features Priscilla Hutchins, a starship captain, and Gregory Macallister, a cynical journalist, who are both involved with a space development agency whose funds are being cut as Earth's government struggles with the effects of long neglected environmental problems. The Academy's starships find that planets within reach are almost devoid of intelligent life. However, scientists discover a series of extinct civilizations in a pattern that suggests that a menace from the heart of the galaxy periodically sweeps through Earth's star region with deadly effects. The series consists, thus far, of six novels, several of which have been Nebula finalists. They are, in order, as follows: The Engines of God, Deepsix, Chindi, Omega, Odyssey, and Cauldron. From the book jacket: With his debut, The Hercules Text, Jack McDevitt#11;was declared "staggeringly good... an extremely welcome newcomer" by Starlog. Then#11;came A Talent for War, called by Michael Bishop#11;"the best science fiction war novel I have read #11;since Joe Haldeman's The Forever War" Now, in#11;The Engines of God, McDevitt brings us his#11;trademark combination of deep human insight #11;and solid scientific knowledge, fulfilling all the#11;promise of his earlier writing-and moving to the#11;next level Two hundred years ago, humans made a stunning discovery in the far reaches of the solar #11;System: a huge statue of an alien creature, with#11;an inscription that defied all efforts at translation.#11;Now as faster-than-light drive opens the stars to #11;exploration, humans are finding other relics of#11;the race they call the Monument-Makers-each#11;different and each heartbreakingly beautiful. But#11;except for a set of footprints on Jupiter's moon #11;Iapetus, there is no trace of the enigmatic race#11;that has left them behind. Then a team of scientists working on a dead #11;world discover an ominous new image of the #11;Monument-Makers. Somehow it all fits with other#11;lost civilizations, and possibly with Earth's own#11;future. And distant past. But Earth itself is on the#11;brink of ecological disaster-there is no time to#11;search for answers. Even to a question that may#11;hold the key to survival for the entire human #11;race... With The Engines of God, Jack McDevitt has launched himself into the top ranks of the hottest and most relevant authors of science fiction.

Engines of War

by Christian Wolmar

Before the nineteenth century, armies had to rely on slow and unreliable methods of transportation to move soldiers and equipment during times of conflict. But with the birth of the railroad in the early 1830s, the way wars were fought would change forever. In Engines of War, renowned expert Christian Wolmar tells the story of that transformation, examining all the engagements in which railways played a part from the Crimean War and American Civil War through both world wars, the Korean War, and the Cold War with its mysterious missile trains. He shows that the 'iron road' not only made armies far more mobile, but also greatly increased the scale and power of available weaponry. Wars began to be fought across wider fronts and over longer timescales, with far deadlier consequences. From armored engines with their swiveling guns to track sabotage by way of dynamite, railway lines constructed across frozen Siberian lakes and a Boer war ambush involving Winston Churchill, Engines of War shows how the railways - a fantastic generator of wealth in peacetime - became a weapon of war exploited to the full by governments across the world.
