Falling in Love with the God Jesus Knows
Author: James Bryan Smith
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
View: 734"God wants me to try harder." "God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad." "God is angry with me." We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true—but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares, the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. The path to spiritual transformation begins here. Turning to the Gospels, Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once you've discovered the truth in Scripture, Smith leads you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind. At the end of each chapter you'll find an opportunity for soul training, engaging in spiritual practices that reinforce the biblical messages on your mind and heart. Because the best way to make a complete and lasting change is to go through the material in community, small group discussion questions also accompany each chapter. Those who are leading apprentice groups will also find additional help and opportunities to interact with other leaders at the Apprentice website, www.apprenticeofjesus.com. This deep, loving and transformative book will help you discover the narratives that Jesus lived by—to know the Lord he knew and the kingdom he proclaimed—and to practice spiritual exercises that will help you grow in the knowledge of our good and beautiful God.
Models and Applications
Author: A. Ravi Ravindran,Donald P. Warsing, Jr.
Publisher: CRC Press
Category: Business & Economics
View: 393Winner of 2013 IIE/Joint Publishers Book-of-the-Year Award Emphasizing a quantitative approach, Supply Chain Engineering: Models and Applications provides state-of-the-art mathematical models, concepts, and solution methods important in the design, control, operation, and management of global supply chains. The text provides an understanding of how companies plan, source, make, and deliver their products to create and/or maintain a global competitive advantage. It emphasizes application of operations research models and methods to optimize the various components of an integrated supply chain. The authors have carefully constructed the book so that it is not so "micro" in its focus that the perspective on the larger business problem is lost, nor is it so "macro" in its treatment of that business context that it fails to develop students’ appreciation for, and skills to solve, the tactical problems that must be addressed in effectively managing flows of goods in supply chains. Building students’ knowledge of the first principles of supply chain engineering, the book covers the traditional issues in operations, logistics, and supply chain management—forecasting demand, managing inventories, managing transportation, and locating facilities. It also includes a number of new optimization tools such as risk pooling, for addressing these problems, based on recent research. In addition, the authors’ treatment of managing customer-supplier relations supplies a fresh perspective that draws on recent research using multiple criteria optimization methods. Moreover, the chapter on managing risks in supply chains presents important problems that extend beyond the traditional treatment of supply chain management. Building a bridge between theory and practice, the authors pull all of these themes together in the culminating chapter that solidifies students’ understanding of managing global supply chains.
Robert Colescott, Kerry James Marshall, Mickalene Thomas
Author: Catharina Manchanda,Lowery Stokes Sims,Jacqueline Francis
Category: African American painting
View: 4558Contemporary artists Robert Colescott (1925-2009), Kerry James Marshall (b. 1955), and Mickalene Thomas (b. 1971) are distinguished by their attention to a history of representation, which they re-visit and revise to reflect on individual and collective Black experience. Equally engaged with social and political histories, and the history of art, Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas have created works that at times poignantly and satirically critique dominant narratives and posit alternatives. By considering these artists together, this thought-provoking book expands our understanding of contemporary history painting, a genre first defined during the 17th century and known for didactic paintings that often depicted Biblical or mythological subjects, and expressed the tastes and narratives of a ruling class. Colescott, Marshall, and Thomas marry appreciation of these traditional forms of representation to a deep understanding of contemporary American culture to create insightful works that disrupt historic narratives and read canonic art history against the grain.
Souls from Place to Place
Author: Christian Boltanski
View: 4208This volume travels through the most important moments and crossroads in the lifetime and career of Christian Boltanski, which have led him into reflecting upon the outcome of some historical events during the twentieth century and on the need to reconsider appropriate representation methods. History, histories and the statute of the image are the fulcrum of the conversation being proposed. In particular, this conversation deals with some fundamental themes: the difference between collective memory, recollection and oblivion; relations between the individual and the crowd; the entity of absence, intended as proof of a destroyed presence, but also as device for the reactivation of memory; the incidence of an isolated glance, that of the observer, upon whose primacy the history of western art has constructed its foundations.

View: 2419The Horses of St. Mark's in Venice are among art's finest creations-and certainly one with a story like no other. Celebrated historian Charles Freeman, author of the 2009 surprise hit A.D. 381, explores the mysterious origin of the statues and their turbulent movements through Europe over the centuries: in Constantinople, at both its founding and sacking in the Fourth Crusade; in Venice, at both the height of its greatness and fall in 1797; in the Paris of Napoleon, and the revolutions of 1848; and back in Venice, the most romantic city in the world. In this remarkable new book, Freeman shows how the horses came to stand at the heart of European history time and time again.
