On the long list of traditional disagreements between evangelicalProtestants and Roman Catholics is the relationship between scriptureand tradition. It is commonly felt there can be no way of gettingover or around the fundamental difference between the Protestantprinciple of "scripture alone" and the Catholic reliance onboth scripture and authoritative tradition."Your Word Is Truth takes a hard look at this historic rift. Theresult of intensive discussion by distinguished Evangelical and Catholictheologians, these chapters explore the ways both communionshandle scripture and tradition and search for points of contact.While this volume does not claim to resolve all the differences thatexist, it does go a long way toward recasting this old dispute in anew and promising light.

Esta es la historia de un chaval gordito, tímido e inseguro, que a los catorce años dio rienda suelta a su pasión, el Rap, y se lanzó por primera vez a improvisar rimas en un escenario. Es la historia de Arkano, ese chaval que es ahora, a los veintidós años, Campeón Internacional de la Red Bull Batalla de los Gallos. Aquel niño que veía una amenaza en cada esquina comenzó a amar las esquinas, a amar las amenazas y, lo más importante de todo, a amarse a sí mismo. A lo largo de estas páginas recordaremos sus principales batallas con los grandes freestylers y los saltos al vacío que ha ido superando en estos años. Con cada salto ha aprendido algo: a escapar de la rutina, a expresarse sin miedo, a alcanzar la felicidad haciendo aquello que le apasiona, a aceptar que siempre habrá quienes le intenten vapulear desde el anonimato y a no dejarse influir por su cobardía. Y a luchar, desde los versos, los gestos y este libro, por la libertad de cada persona para desarrollarse sin complejos y sin ataduras convencionales ni sociales.
On his ninth birthday Sam is given what he wants most of all -- a puppy. Sam names him Dodger. The whole family loves Dodger, but Dodger does get into trouble sometimes -- like when he knocks the trash all over the kitchen floor, or chews a big hole in Sam's baseball cap, or jumps into the tub when Sam's older sister is taking a bath. "Bad dog, Dodger!" Sam scolds him each time. "He's not bad. He just wants to play," Sam's father says.Then the Little League baseball season begins. In the very first game, when Sam is up at bat, Dodger comes flying onto the field and runs off with the bat! Sam knows "something" has to be done or he may not be allowed to keep Dodger, so he starts Dodger's serious obedience training. How Dodger becomes an honorary member of Sam's team is the happy climax of this funny story that -- with Adam Gustavson's humorous, full-color pictures -- will delight all Little Leaguers and their parents as well.
An unprecedented and judicious examination of what the Holocaust means—and doesn't mean—in the Arab world, one of the most explosive subjects of our time There is no more inflammatory topic than the Arabs and the Holocaust—the phrase alone can occasion outrage. The terrain is dense with ugly claims and counterclaims: one side is charged with Holocaust denial, the other with exploiting a tragedy while denying the tragedies of others. In this pathbreaking book, political scientist Gilbert Achcar explores these conflicting narratives and considers their role in today's Middle East dispute. He analyzes the various Arab responses to Nazism, from the earliest intimations of the genocide, through the creation of Israel and the destruction of Palestine and up to our own time, critically assessing the political and historical context for these responses. Finally, he challenges distortions of the historical record, while making no concessions to anti-Semitism or Holocaust denial. Valid criticism of the other, Achcar insists, must go hand in hand with criticism of oneself. Drawing on previously unseen sources in multiple languages, Achcar offers a unique mapping of the Arab world, in the process defusing an international propaganda war that has become a major stumbling block in the path of Arab-Western understanding.
