Crux by Book Resume:

A daughter’s quest to understand her charismatic and troubled father, an immigrant who crosses borders both real and illusory—between sanity and madness, science and spirituality, life and death Winner of the PEN/FUSION Emerging Writers Prize • “Expressive and affecting . . . deeply researched and tightly written . . . Crux, at its heart, is [Jean] Guerrero’s love letter to her dad.”—NPR Throughout Jean Guerrero’s childhood, her father, Marco Antonio, was an erratic and elusive presence. A self-taught genius at fixing, creating, and conjuring things—and capable of transforming himself into a shaman, dreamcaster, or animal whisperer in his enchanted daughter’s eyes—he gradually began to lose himself in his peculiar obsessions, careening wildly between reality and hallucination. In time, he fled his family and responsibilities—to Asia, Europe, and eventually back to Mexico. He succumbed to drug- and alcohol-fueled manias, while suffering the effects of what he said were CIA mind-control experiments. As soon as she was old enough, Jean set out after him. Now a journalist, she used the tools of her trade, hoping to find answers to the questions he left behind. In this lyrical, haunting memoir, Jean Guerrero tries to locate the border between truth and fantasy as she searches for explanations for her father’s behavior. Refusing to accept an alleged schizophrenia diagnosis at face value, she takes Marco Antonio’s dark paranoia seriously and investigates all his wildest claims. She crisscrosses the Mexican-American border to unearth the stories of cousins and grandparents and discovers a chain of fabulists and mystics in her lineage, going back to her great-great-grandmother, a clairvoyant curandera who was paid to summon spirits from the afterlife. As she delves deeper and deeper into her family’s shadowy past, Jean begins mirroring her father’s self-destructive behavior. She risks death on her adventures, imperiling everything in her journey to redeem her father from the underworld of his delusions. In the tradition of engrossing family memoirs like The Liar’s Club and The Glass Castle, Crux is both a riveting adventure story and a profoundly original exploration of the human psyche, the mysteries of our most intimate relationships—and ourselves. “[Guerrero] writes poetically about borders as a metaphor for the boundary of identity between father and daughter and the porous connective tissues that bind them.”—The National Book Review

The Crux by Richard P. Rumelt Book Resume:

A leading thinker and author’s breakthrough theory for creating dynamic strategies that attack critical challenges and overcome obstacles to success. Richard Rumelt’s brilliant and pragmatic book radically changes the way leaders think about and do the most important part of their job: creating a strategy. All too often, leaders neither understand what strategy actually is nor how to create one, mistaking financial targets (“grow by 15 percent annually”) and aspirational goals (“we will produce market-leading products”) as strategy. Leaders become strategists when they pinpoint the crux of the vital, basic, pivotal challenges they face - the problems that threaten future success and the dramatic opportunities for growth whose shape may be elusive and difficult to grasp - and then take powerful, coherent, decisive action to make progress toward building a better future Through vivid storytelling—ranging from how Elon Musk found the crux that propelled the success of Space X to how the American military came to grips with the weaknesses of its battle strategy—Rumelt reframes how we think about strategy.. Strategy is an ongoing journey, not a once-a-year exercise done and then forgotten. Leaders who are strategists have an ever-present alertness to rapidly evolving business, economic, and institutional challenges that threaten future success, fundamental values, even the existence of the organization. Finding the crux is the essential skill of the strategist, especially when challenging problems and opportunities defy easy solution and the forces at work are unclear.

Time and the Word by Ephraim Radner Book Resume:

This book by Ephraim Radner constitutes the first significant theological account of the foundations and methods of the figural reading of Scripture. Radner's reintroduces contemporary scholars to a traditional approach to biblical interpretation that dates back to Jewish practice from before the time of Jesus. Figural interpretation continued in prominence through the early church, the Middle Ages, and into the early modern period before it was forcefully rejected with the rise of historical criticism. Embracing "spiritual" and "allegorical" ways of understanding the Bible, figural reading once offered a broad approach to reading Scripture—an approach that Radner here engages through a foundational theological lens. Radner first uncovers the theological presuppositions of figural reading, historically and philosophically, focusing especially on the Christian understanding of time and the divine. He then moves from the theoretical to the concrete, looking at examples of how figural reading of the Bible gives rise to specific doctrinal claims about God and showing how it can still fruitfully inform Christian teaching and preaching today. The book concludes with four sample figural sermons from across the centuries.

The Crux by Charlotte Perkins Gilman Book Resume:

“In place of happy love, lonely pain. In place of motherhood, disease. Misery and shame, child. Medicine and surgery, and never any possibility of any child for me." First published in her magazine The Forerunner, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Crux is an emotive tale on the nuances of female independence, social expectation and love in early 20th century America. Following an all-female group who move west to open a boarding house for men, The Crux focuses on the experience of Vivian ― and her desire for the undesirable. Deeply in love with Morton, a charismatic young man infected with both syphilis and gonorrhoea, Vivian’s expected journey through her ‘marriage’ years is abruptly turned upside down. Torn by her personal intuition, the advice provided by her female companions and the knowledge that Morton will never give her healthy children, Vivian is faced with a permanent choice ― to forfeit love for the benefit of future generations. Balancing female and male perspectives on illness, personal preservation and nationalism, The Crux tracks Vivian’s path through heart break, emotional development and female camaraderie. As an allegory for Gilman’s own branch of utopian feminism, The Crux is a story of sacrifice and partnership deliberation within the framework of 20th century disease hysteria, eugenic ideology and developing modernism. Often omitted from her writing canon, The Crux is an integral aspect to understanding not only Gilman’s own writing ― but the history of feminism as a whole. “The Crux is essentially a seminar in biological, feminine and social correctness. As stated in the original Forerunner publication, the novel was intended for a specific set of people - young and impressionable women primarily, followed by men and anyone else willing to listen. The Crux, in its barebones, is a nationalist parable for all of America to heed.” from Ambrose Kelly's new introduction to The Crux * * * Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 – 1935) was an American humanist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist and served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle.

Passionate Copying in Late Medieval Bohemia by Lucie Doležalová,Michal Dragoun,Kimberly Rivers Book Resume:

This book presents a detailed case study of Crux de Telcz (1434–1504), illustrating the complexity of the manuscript culture of the second half of the 15th century. The scholar reconstructs Crux’s biography using more than 150 colophons and notes, and analyzes his role as an author, translator, complier, glossator and primarily as a scribe. For comparison, Kimberly Rivers’ study on the Würzburg Franciscan scribe Johannes Sintram († 1450) is included in the book. The most conspicuous feature of the examined late medieval manuscript culture is the unprecedented number of scribe’s paratexts (contents, indexes, explanatory notes, references, identification of sources and others), accompanied by a no less unprecedented number of errors, confusions, obscurities and incoherencies. First volume of the Prague Medieval Studies (PRAMS) series.

Crux by Albert E. Cowdrey Book Resume:

Schemes, betrayals, adventure, and satire blend in this delightful debut novel in the spirit of Poul Anderson's classic Time Patrol stories and Fritz Leiber's The Big Time. Albert E. Cowdrey is a bold new voice in science fiction. Centuries ago, the Time of Troubles left Earth shattered and nearly empty. But a few survivors in Central Asia and returnees from Luna City hung on to bring the human race back to life. Now the Government of the Universe is spread out among hundreds of worlds. Genghis Khan is idolized as the Great Unifier of Humanity, and democracy is a long-forgotten notion. Old racial and religious divisions have been swept away by the rising oceans which lap around the Appalachian Islands, and peace abounds throughout the stars. Into this glorious golden age comes a new threat. Scientists in the World City of Ulanor have created a wormhole generator-a machine which can send people into the past. A band of Old Believers, bleeding hearts, and other malcontents who call themselves "the Crux" have captured the generator to undertake the greatest humanitarian mission of all time: to stop the Time of Troubles by assassinating the man responsible, the legendary Minister Destruction. Of course, Crux has to be stopped. Even the smallest change to the past will destroy the future-and the Controller of Earth won't stand for that. The agents of the Office for the Exploration of the Past-Pastplor-work to thwart Crux and other sociopaths, criminals, and do-gooders who would jeopardize the fragile peace so hard won. Their missions spanning a wide array of vividly imagined futures, Pastplor's agents protect the past from those who would dare to meddle. The time-travelers are hailed as saviors of humanity-but cannot escape the feeling that they're on the wrong side of the war. "A cast of well-fleshed characters and electrifying action should gain Cowdrey a satisfied audience."--Booklist At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Unspeakable horror is unleashed in this riveting thriller from the international bestselling author of Dark Visions and Hunter. In an experiment to discover what secrets are hidden within the infinite vastness of the galaxy, scientists create a machine so powerful that it rips a hole through space and time. But instead of revealing the dark world of their own universe the machine opens a gateway to a universe infinitely more horrifying . . . and infinitely evil. After seven physicists vanish during a routine test of the highly guarded Hadron Super Collider in Geneva, a series of grisly murders also begin at the facility and an elite squad of American military operators are dispatched to discover the truth behind the hideous slaughter. Meanwhile, the sister of a missing scientist hires a mysterious, powerful stranger known only as Isaiah to discover the fate of her sister. Working against time, the two teams risk everything in their quest to learn the insidious truth behind the most dangerous machine in the world, and soon find that the Super Collider did not just open a gateway to the furthest reaches of the galaxy: It opened a far more terrifying gateway, for it bridged the gulf between Earth and Hell . . .

Crux Ansata by Sidney St. James Book Resume:

WHAT IS TRUE LOVE? "True love is not necessary the number of kisses, or how frequently one gets them, TRUE LOVE is the feeling that still remains long after the kiss is over." Crux Ansata – The Lost City of Ankara is a gothic-fantasy novel that follows as a sequel to Nevaeh – The Lost City of Nemea from the Caves of Chivateros in Peru. It is Book Three in the Omega Chronicles. Freja Jensen, contemplating retiring from BeeBop Publishing Group in Austin, Texas, received a brown paper parcel in the mail. She opened the package and saw that it was from Lucas Hansen, or his pen name, Lucas Pedersen. With the letter was a manuscript. Another letter received was from a doctor who asked to remain anonymous. Included in a small teakwood box was an ancient sistrum, an Egyptian musical instrument with magical powers, and had the etching of an ankh on top. In this sequel to Nevaeh – The Lost City of Nemea, a twenty-year search begins by Lucas and Oliver Hansen to try and find Oliver's lost True Love. You might ask, "What is true love? No one can really define what it is. Thousands upon thousands of people will have an answer. Many answers will point to a feeling they experience, but never has the Truth been more known until one reads the dramatic conclusion in this sequel, CRUX ANSATA. In the case of Oliver Hansen, also known as the Golden One, his love, unlike feelings, doesn't come and go. It stays with him for over twenty years as he searches for that one true love, the Goddess Nevaeh. He explores through the good and the bad… and when we say bad, we mean really bad! As long as Oliver searches for the Truth, he holds on to his love for Nevaeh. Romance is not the only thing that holds two people in love together. True love doesn't just happen. One must be careful, as shown by Oliver's father, Lucas Hansen when he confuses infatuation for true love. True love occurs when time has passed. In our case, over twenty years. But, when Oliver sees both the good and the bad parts of the one he loves, will he remain faithful to his path in life… to a chance for finding real and everlasting love. Remember, True Love is not a feeling one experiences, but a decision one makes. This takes time and genuine commitment. Oliver must choose in this dramatic conclusion in this sequel. How will he choose? Will he choose the priestess he ran away with over 2,000 years earlier? Or, will he choose another? It's something to think about as one reads the dramatic conclusion to Oliver's search for True Love as he falls to his knees and says, "I love you like you are the last of my kind. To be around you after so many years is like finally not being alone. It is as if all my life has been isolated, in a room without windows or a room without a door… and then you suddenly walk in as if strolling over a springtime meadow. So, why I can still have a breath, I'm yours in mind, body, and soul throughout all eternity." "And you descended the glacier's steep stairwell to depths, not knowing what laid beneath that fearful path. All these dangers you faced on your own choice… your choice of True Love… your true and faithful devotion to me, my Oliver. Do you finally understand at last?"

Crux Ansata - An Indictment of the Roman Catholic Church by H. G. Wells Book Resume:

“Crux Ansata” is a fervent attack on the Roman Catholic Church and Pope Pius XII written by H. G. Wells at the height of the Second World War. Within it, Wells uses his position and popularity to bolster British morale, praising the English spirit whilst simultaneously condemning the "spreading octopus" of the Church and its "Shinto alliance." Contents include: “Why Do We Not Bomb Rome?”, “The Development Of The Idea Of Christendom”, “The Essential Weakness Of Christendom”, “Heresies Are Experiments In Man's Unsatisfied Search For Truth”, “The City of God”, “The Church Salvages Learning”, “Charlemagne”, “Black Interlude”, “The Launching Of The Crusades By The Church”, et cetera. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Christ at the Crux by Paul Cumin Book Resume:

How can Christian theology confess God as both other than the world and also related to it in a way that compromises neither of these? Most modern thought has offered a simple reply: it cannot. Christ at the Crux analyzes one element of the roots of this denial and charts a route toward rapprochement. The Christologies of eight theologians offer various attempts to relate the Creator and the creature in Christ: Irenaeus of Lyon, Cyril of Alexandria, John Philoponus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Zizioulas, Robert Jenson, and Colin Gunton. Within the patristic era the question is grounded in theology about the incarnation; with the Reformers the focus is on the mediation between creation and Creator; and with the three modern theologians the breadth of the issue is completed with theology proper. Together, these eight offer a grand-scale perspective on much of the christological possibilities for conceiving the relation between God and everything else. In the end Paul Cumin shows how the doctrine of the Trinity appears to open new possibilities for Christology and in particular for the way theology about the Spirit enables a reimagining of those items of Christian thought most likely at the roots of our modern rejection of God-as-other.

Nevaeh & Crux Ansata Part I & 2 Box Set in the Omega Chronicles by Sidney St. James Book Resume:

Books 2-3 Omega Chronicles Nevaeh & Crux Ansata Part I and II Book 2 of the Omega Chronicles, Part I "If you were to destroy the belief in immortality in mankind, not only love but every living force on which the continuation of all life in the world depends, would dry up at once." – Fyodor Dostoevsky Many people believe that being immortal is a bliss, something that is priceless… something that one would do next to anything for. Would it be a bliss to live long enough to see all your loved ones perish? To wander around the world in loneliness, for every friend you ever made have run out of time to spend with you? Personally, I think not! It's not a bliss. If anything, it's a downright curse. This story about the lost city of Nemea is a subgenre of the fantasy or science fiction genres that involves the discovery of an unknown world out of time and place. The second novel in the Omega Chronicles series is also a subgenre of the late Victorian adventure romance. This story has a similar theme to other mythical kingdoms, The Lost City of Altinova in Book 1 and others, such as Atlantis and El Dorado. Lucas Petersen, a professor at the University of Texas, is resting quietly in his apartment on Guadalupe Street near the main campus. There's a knock at his door that surprised him. He is visited by Tommy Hansen, a good friend. With him, he brought a steel box, set it down at his friend's table, and explained his unusual request, including the fact that he was soon to die. Part of the request was that the contents of the box couldn't be disclosed for twenty years. ***** Book 3 of Omega Chronicles: Part II, a Sequel to Nevaeh, Part I "True love is not necessary the number of kisses, or how frequently one gets them, TRUE LOVE is the feeling that still remains long after the kiss is over." Crux Ansata – The Lost City of Ankara is a gothic-fantasy novel that follows as a sequel to Nevaeh – The Lost City of Nemea from the Caves of Chivateros in Peru. It is Book Three in the Omega Chronicles. Freja Jensen, contemplating retiring from BeeBop Publishing Group in Austin, Texas, received a brown paper parcel in the mail. She opened the package and saw that it was from Lucas Hansen, or his pen name, Lucas Pedersen. With the letter was a manuscript. Another letter received was from a doctor who asked to remain anonymous. Included in a small teakwood box was an ancient sistrum, an Egyptian musical instrument with magical powers, and had the etching of an ankh on top. In this sequel to Nevaeh – The Lost City of Nemea, a twenty-year search begins by Lucas and Oliver Hansen to try and find Oliver's lost True Love. You might ask, "What is true love? No one can really define what it is. Thousands upon thousands of people will have an answer. Many answers will point to a feeling they experience, but never has the Truth been more known until one reads the dramatic conclusion in this sequel, CRUX ANSATA. In the case of Oliver Hansen, also known as the Golden One, his love, unlike feelings, doesn't come and go. It stays with him for over twenty years as he searches for that one true love, the Goddess Nevaeh. He explores through the good and the bad… and when we say bad, we mean

Real Presence by McGrath Institute for Church Life,Timothy P. O'Malley Book Resume:

Most Catholics don’t believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. Rather, they see the bread and wine of Holy Communion as mere symbols of Christ’s body and blood. Is that disbelief just a misunderstanding or is it a blatant rejection of one of the central beliefs of the faith? In Real Presence, University of Notre Dame theologian Timothy P. O’Malley clears up the confusion and shows you how to learn to love God and neighbor through a deeper understanding of the doctrine of real presence. A 2019 study by the Pew Research Center found that almost seventy percent of Catholics don’t believe that Jesus is really present in the Eucharist. O’Malley offers a concise introduction to Catholic teaching on real presence and transubstantiation through a biblical, theological, and spiritual account of these doctrines from the early Church to today. He also explores how real presence enables us to see the vulnerability of human life and the dignity of all flesh and blood. O’Malley leads you to a deeper understanding and renewed faith in Catholic teaching about transubstantiation and real presence by helping you learn how the doctrine of real presence is rooted in divine revelation and how the Church’s teaching regarding transubstantiation is spiritually fruitful for the believer today; how to make your own the doctrine of real presence by worshipping Christ in the Eucharist and therefore making a real assent to real presence; how the Eucharist, although not the exclusive presence of Christ in the Church’s liturgy and mission, is crucial in growing our capacity for recognizing those other presences; and the important relationship between Eucharistic communion and adoration.

The Routledge Handbook of Panpsychism by William E Seager Book Resume:

Panpsychism is the view that consciousness – the most puzzling and strangest phenomenon in the entire universe – is a fundamental and ubiquitous feature of the world, though in a form very remote from human consciousness. At a very basic level, the world is awake. Panpsychism seems implausible to most, and yet it has experienced a remarkable renaissance of interest over the last quarter century. The reason is the stubbornly intractable problem of consciousness. Despite immense progress in understanding the brain and its relation to states of consciousness, we still really have no idea how consciousness emerges from physical processes which are presumed to be entirely non-conscious. The Routledge Handbook of Panpsychism provides a high-level comprehensive examination and assessment of the subject – its history and contemporary development. It offers 28 chapters, appearing in print here for the first time, from the world’s leading researchers on panpsychism. The chapters are divided into four sections that integrate panpsychism’s relevance with important issues in philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, metaphysics, and even ethics: Historical Reflections Forms of Panpsychism Comparative Alternatives How Does Panpsychism Work? The volume will be useful to students and scholars as both an introduction and as cutting-edge philosophical engagement with the subject. For anyone interested in a philosophical approach to panpsychism, the Handbook will supply fascinating and enlightening reading. The topics covered are highly diverse, representing a spectrum of views on the nature of mind and world from various standpoints which take panpsychism seriously.

Britten's Children by John Bridcut Book Resume:

Britten's Children confronts the edgy subject of the composer's obsessional yet strangely innocent relationships with adolescent boys. One of the hallmarks of Benjamin Britten's music is his use of boys' voices, and John Bridcut uses this to create a fresh prism through which to view the composer's life. Interweaving discussion of the music he wrote for and about children with interviews with the boys whom Britten befriended, Bridcut explores the influence of these unique friendships - notably with the late David Hemmings - and how they helped Britten maintain links with his own happy childhood. In a remarkable part of the book Bridcut tells for the first time the full story of Britten's love affair in the 1930s with the 18-year-old German Wulff Scherchen, son of the conductor Hermann Scherchen. As Paul Hoggart of The Times commented, 'this type of love belonged to an emotional landscape that has vanished for ever, and we are the poorer for it'. Since making the film, the author has extended his research to include friendships Britten had with children which have not previously been documented. The documentary Britten's Children won the Royal Philharmonic Society's 2005 Award for Creative Communication: 'this serious and beautiful film explored one aspect of a composer's life in great depth. Avoiding the temptation of sensationalism, Britten's Children was imaginatively researched and both touching and revelatory'.

Die Kruzifixdebatte. Die Crux mit dem Kreuz by Lukas Hock Book Resume:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Religion, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ist es verboten ein Kreuz im Klassenzimmer oder im Kindergarten aufzuhängen? Stört es Nichtgläubige? Oder diskriminiert es gar Andersgläubige? Mit diesen Fragen mussten sich in den vergangen Jahrzehnten sowohl das deutsche Bundesverfassungsgericht als auch der österreichische Verfassungsgerichtshof sowie der europäische Gerichtshof für Menschrechte mehrmals beschäftigen. Anstoß zu der Debatte in Österreich war ein Individualantrag auf Gesetzesprüfung eines niederösterreichischen atheistischen Kindesvaters, der die Ansicht vertritt, seine Tochter werde im Kindergarten von der dauernden Präsenz religiöser Symbole geprägt. Dies widerspreche seiner Vorstellung von einer atheistischen Erziehung seiner Tochter. Auf diesen Fall werde ich später noch eingehen. Aber auch in anderen Ländern, wie in Deutschland oder Italien, kam es zu ähnlich gelagerten Fällen, auf welche ich nun näher eingehen möchte.

Robina Crux by Alexander Kröger Book Resume:

Wie ein gewaltiger Spiegel ragt plötzlich die Fläche eines Riesenkristalls vor Robina auf. Und obwohl die junge Kosmonautin das Höhenruder zurückreißt, erfolgt Sekundenbruchteile später ein schmetternder Aufprall. Das Beiboot ist auf jenem geheimnisvollen Kristallboliden havariert, den die Besatzung der REAKTOM auf der Heimreise zur Erde entdeckt hat. Bestürzt sucht Robina Kontakt zum Raumschiff, um die Bergung zu veranlassen, doch die Funksignale bleiben ohne Antwort. Etwas Unfassbares ist geschehen. Die REAKTOM ist verschwunden, und Kernstrahlung deutet auf eine Katastrophe. Niemand wird Robina retten können; sie ist allein in dieser unwirtlichen Kristallwelt, viele Lichtjahre von der Erde entfernt. Tiefe Verzweiflung ergreift die junge Kosmonautin, der nur ein Hoffnungsschimmer bleibt: Da ist jenes fremde Funkfeuer, dessen kalte Lumineszenz den Boliden in rhythmischem Abstand aus der Schwärze des Alls reißt. Vagabundierende Raumfahrer erlösen Robina aus jahrzehntelanger Einsamkeit auf dem Kristallboliden. Doch sie begegnen ihr distanziert. Während der Reise zu einem lebensfreundlichen Planeten erfährt Robina vom abscheulichen Tun der Fremden. Robina kehrt nach Jahren zurück, aber wie findet sie ihre Erde vor! (siehe „Der erste Versuch“ von Alexander Kröger) Doch hoffnungsvoll gesellt sie sich zu jenen, die einen Neubeginn wagen.

BETHANY MACDONALD HAS TRAINED SIX LONG YEARS FOR THIS MOMENT. SHE’LL TRY TO SOLVE FIVE QUESTIONS IN THREE HOURS, FOR ONE IMPROBABLE DREAM. THE DREAM OF REPRESENTING HER COUNTRY, AND BECOMING A MATH OLYMPIAN. As a small-town girl in Nova Scotia bullied for liking numbers more than boys, and lacking the encouragement of her unsupportive single mother who frowns at her daughter’s unrealistic ambition, Bethany's road to the International Math Olympiad has been marked by numerous challenges. Through persistence, perseverance, and the support of innovative mentors who inspire her with a love of learning, Bethany confronts these challenges and develops the creativity and confidence to reach her potential. In training to become a world-champion "mathlete", Bethany discovers the heart of mathematics – a subject that’s not about memorizing formulas, but rather about problem-solving and detecting patterns to uncover truth, as well as learning how to apply the deep and unexpected connections of mathematics to every aspect of her life, including athletics, spirituality, and environmental sustainability. As Bethany reflects on her long journey and envisions her exciting future, she realizes that she has shattered the misguided stereotype that only boys can excel in math, and discovers a sense of purpose that through mathematics, she can and she will make an extraordinary contribution to society.

The Crux Of The Fight: General Joseph Lawton Collins' Command Style by LTC Theo K. Moore Book Resume:

This monograph examines General J. Lawton Collins' career and argues that his command style was characterized by technical and tactical competence, the practical ability to lead from the front and sound judgment. This monograph examines these key factors in three subsections. General Collins gained his technical and tactical competence by theoretical preparation as a student and instructor. He first demonstrated the ability to position himself at the critical point on the battlefield as the commander of the 25th Infantry Division during the Guadalcanal Campaign in January 1943. As the commander of the VII Corps during the Allies' Campaign in northwest Europe from 1944 to 1945, he refined this ability. Finally, he developed sound judgment while performing key postings both during the interwar period and during the Second World War. This monograph shows how General J. Lawton Collins' command style translated into action and made him such an effective combat leader.

Crux interpretum by Uta Heil,Annette von Stockhausen Book Resume:

Das Werk des Philologen Eduard Schwartz (1858-1940) hat die philologische, historische und theologische Erforschung der Antike und Spätantike besonders durch seine Editionen (wie die der Kirchengeschichte des Eusebius von Cäsarea oder der Acta Conciliorum Oecumenicorum) stark geprägt und schon zu Lebzeiten für manche Kontroversen gesorgt. Sein Streit mit Adolf von Harnack über eine antiochenische Synode von 324/5 oder seine Rückführung dogmengeschichtlicher Auseinandersetzungen auf "Machtpolitik" sind bis heute über Fachkreise hinaus bekannt. Der Sammelband vereint die Beiträge einer Tagung, die von den Herausgebern zum 65. Geburtstag von Hanns Christof Brennecke an der Universität Erlangen veranstaltet wurde, da sowohl die dort betriebene Edition der Schriften des Athanasius als auch die der Dokumente zum arianischen Streit auf Anregungen von Schwartz zurückgehen. Die Referenten aus der Alten Geschichte, Philologie und Theologie werfen 75 Jahre nach dem Tod von Schwartz einen kritischen Blick auf sein Werk, das in den jeweiligen Disziplinen unterschiedlich weiterwirkt. Angehängt ist eine Transkription seines Briefwechsels mit Adolf Jülicher und Friedrich Loofs.
