Book Summary

...Beginning chapter one with citing one of the ten commandments, “Thou shall not steal,” Wayne Grudem sets the stage of what is about to come; a black and white analysis on how having business success does not necessarily make you fall short of being a “good” Christian. As a well-known, very credible Christian theologist, one may wonder why Grudem would venture out to right a book solely about business. “Business for the Glory of God,” looks at business ownership, profitability, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, just to name a few topics. This essay will take a look at a few of the controversial topics, and share insight of why they may or may not be feasible arguments for why business is, “a gift from God.” When Grudem speaks of the commandment that states, “Thou shall not steal,” he uses this as evidence that by stealing, one must have their own possessions, and if we did not have possessions, this commandment would make no sense. This is a reasonable assumption, therefore it can be a good way to begin discussing how ownership is not so bad; on the contrary, if Grudem is unable to offer clear, factual information, his credibility may waiver. Chapter one continues with Grudem’s discussion of how ownership is not synonymic for greed, and if one is selfless and realizes that God is the real business owner, he has not sinned. The points that Grudem makes are quite valid, and are very simple, and to the point; the issue with this, is that these may seem......

Ellen G White

...Orlene Parks Draft Author White’s writings also serve as a Biblical interpretative aide in the 21st Century Seventh-day Adventist denomination. Those of her books most taken advantage of for biblical interpretations are the Seventh Day Adventist Bible Commentary, Patriarchs and Prophets, Prophets and Kings, Acts of the Apostles, The Desire of Ages, the Great Controversy and Steps to Christ. While the Bible is of it's self, self-interpretive, Author White’s writing is only or should only be used as an aide. Her writing should not be used to substitute the need for the illumination of the Holy Spirit, or to eliminate individual exegesis of the scripture under consideration. Author White’s writings are use by various categories of people for various reasons. Pastors and scholars used her writings for additional enlightenment; church members use them because they provide good readings for Christian growth, and even her critics read her writings in order to discredit her. Lastly, there are those who use it just to prove a point. For example in 2001when the USA experienced the 911 terrorist attack, a lot of non Seventh-day Adventist started to purchase her writings hoping to find the reason and interpretation of the madness that had just transpired. The reasons these book are considered beneficial for biblical interpretation is because her writings have proved to be inline with the Bible, her predictions come to past and her ethos/character complements her work and......

...JOHN CHAPTER 2(NKJV,NIV,NEW AMERICAN BIBLE) The next day Jesus' mother was a guest at a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. 2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. 3 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus' mother spoke to him about the problem. "They have no more wine," she told him. 4 "How does that concern you and me?" Jesus asked. "My time has not yet come." 5 But his mother told the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6 Six stone water pots were standing there; they were used for Jewish ceremonial purposes and held twenty to thirty gallons each. 7 Jesus told the servants "Fill the jars with water." When the jars had been filled to the brim, 8 he said "Dip some out and take it to the master of ceremonies." So they followed his instructions. 9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 10 "Usually a host serves the best wine first," he said. "Then, when everyone is full and doesn't care, he brings out the less expensive wines. But you have kept the best until now!" 11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was Jesus' first display of his glory. And his disciples believed in him. 12 After the wedding he went to Capernaum for a few days with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples. 13 It was time for the annual Passover celebration, and Jesus went to Jerusalem.(NKJV) In the temple...

Ellen J. Langer Book the Power of Mindful Learning

...Cover Letter: This paper is about elaborating the concept of memorization based on Ellen J. Langer book The Power of Mindful Learning. I wrote this paper in first person point of view since it was based on my personal experience. It was hard however to maintain a formal tone when writing in first person and it might still be evident in this essay itself. I think that the essay itself is still choppy and I should put more time in making more flow and connections between the paragraphs and different points. It is also relatively short for the essay requirement. If I had to do it again I would definitely revise it more than once and probably ask someone else to proof read it. I learned to cite personal experience and information from the book and put it into an argument however I still think that I could still do some improvement on that matter. Mindful Memorization in Education Memorization is something that a lot of people take for granted. Most people memorize information without knowing what they actually remember. Those people remember the information by constant mindless repetition. Another way of memorization comes from making connection of the information with something that is related to it. Although memorizing through relevance is a more recommended way in memorizing information, based on my personal experience and observations constant repetition was also needed throughout my academic journey. When it comes to memorization, something that always appears...

Three faces to wear One after the other For the three men in my life.     When my Brother comes make me one opposite If he is a devil, a saint With a staff to his fork And for his horns, a crown. I hope for my contrast To make nil Our old resemblance to each other and my twin will walk me out Without a frown Pretending I am another.     When my Father comes Make me one so like His child once eating his white bread in trance Philomela* before she was raped.

Summary of Education by Ellen G. White

...Summary of Education True education is not just about enrolling to a certain degree program and attains a diploma from it. Rather it has to do with the harmonious and lifetime development of physical, mental, and spiritual powers of humans. The true “higher education” is imparted by our Father in Heaven who is the source of wisdom and strength (Job 12:13), and knowledge and understanding (Proverbs 2:6). Most importantly, highest education is found in the communion of the human mind to the mind of God, that is the finite with the Infinite. “Acquaint now thyself with Him” (Job 22:21), is God’s message to us. The work of redemption such as restoring in the man the image of God, bringing him back to the perfection that he was created, and promoting the development of the body, mind, and soul, is the object of education. Love is the basis of education. The Holy Scriptures are the perfect standard of truth and should be given the highest regard in education. In the Garden of Eden, God illustrated a model school where He himself was the Teacher and the first couple were his students. God was after the highest good of his students that they may not be idle. He had given them a useful occupation that will strengthen their body, expand their mind and develop their character. Generally, the students of highest education must be fitted more and more to fully reflect the light of the knowledge of His glory. God gave humans the power of choice. Sin was brought into the world......

Reading Ellen White

...learning to manage time effectively will help you achieve the goals you set and reduce stress. It is no wonder that in reading, mathematics, or science, at any grade level, large variations in engaged time by students is a strong predictor of achievement (Berliner, 1984). The amount of time that students are involved in relevant reading and mathematical problems is positively associated and related with academic achievement (Borg, 1980). One reason for a lack of research in this area may be the common belief among most students that more time spent studying outside of class positively influences academic performance and that more time spent working negatively influences academic performance. Note Taking. According to British Journal of Education Technology (2008), note-taking is the practice of keeping and recording information obtained from other sources. Furthermore, by taking notes, the writer or student records the essence of the information, freeing their mind from having to recall everything. Frederick (2002) concludes that how efficient you take and keep notes will save you from the problems caused by last minute studying. In addition, students who succeed in taking efficient and relevant notes could see a one or two letter grade improvement in most of their classes. Taking good notes will also give students a starting point when studying and helps them organize the material covered and points out areas of weaknesses. Researchers found that if important information......

Summary of the Books of the New Testament Books

...key themes in this book are Christ as Man and to give us a very reliable record of the life of Jesus. Some of the key events of this book are the announcement of the birth of Jesus as well as the birth of John the Baptist by the angel Gabriel, Jesus’ miraculous conception, the ministries of Jesus and John the Baptist. Some of the major personalities are Jesus, the disciples, John the Baptist, Elizabeth, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Zechariah, Herod the Great, and Pilate. Luke starts by the angel Gabriel announcing the births of John and Jesus. We are told of John the Baptist’s ministry and how he comes to baptize Jesus. We are lead through the life of Jesus and His ministry. Jesus tells His stories of the prodigal son, the Good Samaritan and the rich man and Lazarus, and through these stories we are shown His compassion and forgiveness. While Jesus is teaching, the religious leaders are plotting against Him. Jesus is betrayed, tried and crucified. He is placed in the tomb and rises three days later. He came back to the disciples “And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.”(Luke 24:45) and then parts from them and is carried up into heaven. Acts The book of Acts is basically narrative in genre. Some of the prominent personalities of the book of Acts are Peter and Paul and that of the other apostles, although they play little or no role. The basic theme is the work of the Holy Spirit in the early history of Christianity. The book of Acts gives us......

Book The book is focused on business model innovation and introducing a simple framework for thinking about potential business model innovations and evaluating the positives and negatives of a potential business model. Then it continues to define the parameters of the ‘white space’, which is the uncharted territory for any organization. This can be either geographical, demographical or product distinctions. Mark W. Johnson understands that white space is difficult to define. Where white space may represent available opportunities outside of one company’s area, those same opportunities may represent the core business for another organization. In the case of a company considering entering a white space, there is the challenge of risk. For many organizations, the risk of failure is considered too great, and many potential new products and markets are missed as a result. The compromise position, taken by many enterprises, is to enter into related markets, adjacent to their core product line. While potentially profitable, the adjacent market doesn’t represent a transformation of the business model in a fundamental way, leaving the company vulnerable to more innovative competitors.

Summary of the Books of the Old Testament Books

...BIBL104 27 NOV 11 Summary of the books of the Old Testament Books Matthew The book of Matthew genre is gospel. The gospel of Matthew bridges the old and new testaments to the prophecy, that Jesus is the messiah. Matthew used more quotes of the Old Testament than all other gospels combined, thus indicating that it was written to a Jewish audience to convince them that Jesus is the savior. Matthew started his gospel by tracing Jesus back forty-two generations from Joseph and Mary to Abraham. Matthew becomes one of the twelve disciples and along with the other eleven they learn about Jesus’s death was coming near. They were also taught what to expect and how to live before Jesus returns. This gospel highlights the Sermon on the Mount, summarizing the ethical standards Jesus established to those that belong to the kingdom of God. The final chapters cover the detail of the last supper, Peter’s denial of knowing Jesus, Jesus’s last words on the cross, and the resurrection of Jesus. LUKE The book of Luke is a genre of gospel. Luke was a missionary associated with the apostle Paul. Luke was also the only known Gentile Christian in the New Testament. Even though Luke was not a witness to Jesus, Luke provides the best complete picture to life of Jesus. Luke in tells the knowledge of Jesus, how at a young age of twelve he was able to understand his unique mission as the son of God. How Jesus came to know John the Baptist and was baptized before gathering his twelve disciples.......
