Forensic psychology is where psychology meets the criminal justice system. An understanding of the intersection of criminal law and psychological issues relating to criminal responsibility is critical for criminal justice students. This accessible text focuses on the criminal law implications of forensic psychology as it relates to topics such as competency to stand trial, state of mind at the time of the crime, suicide by cop, and involuntary psychiatric medication administered in custody. Unlike more traditional texts on this topic, which are primarily concerned with the clinical practice of forensic psychology, this book focuses on critical thinking as it relates to these topics. Each chapter presents a critical analysis of the topic under study, going beyond merely identifying the legal parameters of criminal responsibility to explore the ethical, philosophical, and theoretical foundations of that concept.

A groundbreaking work in New Testament studies expanded and updated Winner of the 2007 Christianity Today Book Award in Biblical Studies, this momentous volume argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who personally knew Jesus. Noted New Testament scholar Richard Bauckham challenges the prevailing assumption that the Jesus accounts circulated as "anonymous community traditions," asserting instead that they were transmitted in the names of the original eyewitnesses. In this expanded second edition Bauckham is adding a new preface, three substantial new chapters that respond to critics and clarify key points of his argument, and a comprehensive new bibliography.

The Gospel of John is perhaps the most personal memoir of the life and work of Jesus Christ. John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, manages more fully to combine poignant and memorable vignettes with longer teaching passages than do the other gospel writers.Besides being the gospel of love, Robert Yarbrough points out, John also meant his record to be a gospel of testimony. John's gospel could also be called one of invitation. The accounts of the Samaritan woman, Nicodemus, Lazarus, and others end with a call to follow Jesus. They have about them the brisk air of an eyewitness and convey a rush of urgency to convince and convert.With a sure hand on the Greek text and a readable style, Yarbrough walks you through John's account of the last years of Jesus' life. In a sense you, too, become an eyewitness to God's live incarnate.
