      Munawar-Rachman, Budhy (MIZAN, 2006-09)
      "Religion is a system of view of life that offers meaning and purpose of right and good life."
    • B. B. warfild on Creation and Evolution

      Zaspel, Fred G. (The Gospel Coalition, 2010)
      "within this debate appeal is sometimes made to our Christian forebears, and we are never far into this discussion before we hear of Benjamin Breckinridge warfild (1851–1921) of old Princeton. warfild, we are often assured, the theologian of the doctrine of inspiration whose conservative credentials are unquestioned, is one who held both to the inerrancy of scripture and theistic evolution. david N. Livingstone and Mark A. Noll have led the way in advancing this characterization.2 some of warfild’s writings on this question have been republished in Selected Shorter Writings and Th Works of Benjamin B. Warfild.3 But others of his related writings had remained diffilt to fid, languishing primarily in century-old periodicals. Livingstone and Noll have remedied this for us in Evolution, Science, and Scripture, which collects virtually all of the creation-evolution writings of this giant Princetonian."
    • B.B. Warfield and Lewis S. Chafer on Snctification

      Gleason, Randall (Evangelical Theological Society, 1997)
      "Over the past decade evangelical theologians have authored a number of books advocating diverse and even divergent perspectives on the work of sancti˜cation.1 Among these competing models, perhaps the hardest fought battle has been between conventional Calvinism and what for lack of a better term might be called the Chaferian view.2 These two approaches agree on a number of points: that sancti˜cation involves both the sovereign grace of the Holy Spirit and the willing response of the individual believer, that the experience of sancti˜cation is progressive, that sinless perfection is attained only in the glori˜ed state of heaven and not in this present life, and that the believer is eternally secure from the moment of regeneration.3 Nevertheless several signi˜cant diˆerences remain"

      Eidgenössische Ethikkommission für die Gentechnik im ausserhumanen Bereich (2003-09-10)
      "Für die Zustellung der Unterlagen zum zweiten Bewilligungsgesuch B0003 vom 26. Juni 2003 des Institutes für Planzenwissenschaften der ETH Zürich und die Gelegenheit zur Stellungnahme danken with Ihnen."
    • Baba Nanak

      Gill, Harjeet Singh (Punjabi University, 2007)
      The Grand Narrative of Baba Nanak presented by Professor Harjeet Singh Gill is based on the Janam Sakhls and the interpretations of the compositions of the Guru in the Adi Granth. These are reflections and meditations on the mysteries and the metaphysical complexities of the human and the divine universe. From the most mundane affairs of this world we move on to the dialectics of anthropology and cosmology in a language that is charged with a resonance and a rhythm that is both transcendental and allegoric.
    • Babel [Babel]

      Krasovec, Joze (Ediciones Encuentro, 1994)
      "La tradición del monoteísmo yahvista, en la que están comprendidos el orden moral universal y la familia universal de las naciones, encierra una idea sumamente retadora: la elección que Dios hace de Israel, confiriéndole una misión especial entre los pueblos. Según Nm 23, 9 Israel es «un pueblo que vive aparte; no es contado entre las naciones» (cfr. Dt 7,6-7; 26,18-19; 33,29; Is 49,7; Sal 33,12). Esta es la causa de la distinta actitud divina para con los otros pueblos, frente al trato especial dispensado a Israel."
    • Babel, Punishment or Proposal?

      Monroy, Juan Bosco (EATWOT's International Theological Commission, 2014)
      "We would like to start our reflection from a well-known text: the Tower of Babel (Gen 11, 1-8). We remember that the text presents..."
    • Babel: Castigo o Propuesta? [Babel, Punishment or Proposal?]

      Monroy, Juan Bosco (EATWOT's International Theological Commission, 2014)
      "Quisiéramos comenzar nuestra reflexión a partir de un texto muy conocido: la torre de Babel (Gen 11,1-8). Recordemos lo que el texto nos presenta…"
    • Babilonia y Jerusalén en la teología bíblica [Babylon and Jerusalem in biblical theology]

      Breneman, Mervin (Kairos, 1989)
      "“Ha caído, ha caído la gran Babilonia, ... Porque todas las naciones han bebido del vino del furor de su fornicación; ... Alégrate sobre ella, cielo, y vosotros, santos, apóstoles y profetas; porque Dios os ha hecho justicia en ella” (Ap. 18.2-3, 20). ¿De qué ciudad habla Juan? ¿Qué representa Babilonia en la mente de sus lectores? ¿,Era la antigua ciudad de Mesopotamia? ¿Era Roma? ¿O significaba una realidad más amplia? Por cierto, tanto Babilonia como Jerusalén han tenido su significado histórico; han sido la escena de generaciones tras generaciones que vivieron y murieron allí. La Biblia no niega esta realidad, pero da un significado adicional a Babilonia y a Jerusalén, un significado teológico y simbólico."
    • Baboukèt la tonbe! – The muzzle has fallen!

      Regan, Jane (World Association for Christian Communication, 2008-04)
      "Radio played an important role in the resistance to Haiti’s brutal three-year coup d’état (1991-94). Not surprisingly, the post-coup period saw a flowering of the popular and community radio movement, with over two dozen stations springing up in just a few years. But the stations did not end up playing the mobilizing role their founders had imagined. Instead, many became little more than educational radios at best, run by small cliques. A number even spawned candidates and became allied with the ruling political party. Before a decade was up, over half had become clients of a U.S. government-funded agency. What happened to the vibrant radio movement and the grassroots organizations that founded them? And how are the stations faring today? What can be learned?"
    • BABRI MASJID DEMOLITION AND LIBERHAN COMMISSION REPORT

      Ali Engineer, Asghar (2009-01)
      "Babri Masjid–Ramjanambhoomi controversy dominated Indian politics for about a decade and became the main issue and it was so controversial and rooted in communal politics that it polarized Indian people along religious lines for the first time in post-independence India and since it was raised for riding to political power and BJP did rise to political power towards the end of nineties of the last century. It was not so secret that the leaders of the Sangh Parivar were responsible for demolition of Babri Masjid and the chief architect of this movement was Shri L.K.Advani who took out Rath Yatra from Somnath to Ayodhya to win mass support of Hindus and the Rath Yatra turned into ‘blood yatra’ as nearly 3000 small and not so small riots took place during its course. Times of India editorially described it as ‘blood yatra’. Babri Masjid demolition also resulted in bloody riots in several major cities of the country and Mumbai and Surat riots in December and January 1992-93 surpassed all limits in brutality, killing and raping. By any accounts of Babri Masjid’s demolition and subsequent riots remain the shame of modern secular India and this happened to fulfill the lust of a political party for power."(pg 1)
    • Babylon

      Edgar, Thomas R. (Evangelical Theological Society, 1982)
      "As the Church moves closer and closer to the end times it behooves believers to observe any signs of the approaching end of the age. One of the signs often re- ferred to is the world church movement, which is identified with the present ecu- menical thrust. The basis for the belief in a world church or "super-church" as a sign of the end is a specific interpretation of Revelation 17. The "great harlot" is considered to be an ecclesiastical system in chap. 17, and the entity in chap. 18 is considered to be the final world governmental system. Chapter 17 is "ecclesiasti- cal Babylon" whereas chap. 18 is "political Babylon." In other words Revelation"
    • Bachelet: las mujeres han sido las más golpeadas por la crisis [Bachelet: women have been the hardest hit by the crisis]

      BBC Mundo (CLAI Consejo Latinoamericano de Iglesias, 2010)
      "La ex presidenta de Chile Michelle Bachelet lleva sólo un mes en su nuevo trabajo como secretaria general adjunta de ONU Mujer y ya tiene un gran problema que resolver: el efecto de la crisis financiera en las mujeres de todo el mundo."
    • Back to basics

      Quiroga, Raul (Adventist International Institute of Advanced Studies, 2008)
      "This study seeks to expound possible intertextual links in 2 Corinthians in relation to the MT. As a basic hypothesis this study argues for thematic and linguistic connections that the apostle Paul seems to borrow specifically from the first chapters of Genesis in order to build the scriptural foundations of his ministry. The verification will be done by comparing the vocabulary used in both sections. Literary structures from both passages will also be analyzed as well as possible shared themes and topics of the chapters. The section will be studied in a verse-by-verse way, taking as main texts of comparison the Greek text of the NT, the LXX and the Hebrew MT. "
    • Back to college

      Day, Ron (Baptist Ministers Fellowship, 2015)
      "I left Spurgeon’s College in 1994. The four-year period of ministerial training and formation was, for me, a difficult but worthwhile road. I went into ministry with a BD (specialising in Greek, Hebrew and church history), and a Diploma in Pastoral Studies. My first pastorate, in Stradbroke, was a great challenge and saw the fruit of some useful joined-up thinking. After a year I finished my probationary studies (a mere 15 book reviews, no mentoring, no senior friend, just a sympathetic Area Superintendent who was delighted he had another minister on his patch). Soon I missed the discipline of study, so I signed up for a part-time MA in Pastoral Theology in Cambridge"
    • Back to Nature

      Colvert, Gavin T. (Saint Anselm College, 2007)
    • Back to the '90s

      Bloche, M. Gregg (Nejm CareerCenter, 2004)
      "Should the law let patients sue health plans for damages when plans deny coverage and bad results ensue? A June ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court has returned this question to the forefront of the nation's political agenda. The decision, in Aetna v. Davila, 1 immunized employer-sponsored health plans against damage suits for wrongful denial of coverage. It voided statutes in 10 states that expressly allowed such suits and barred courts everywhere from permitting such claims to go forward under judge-made law. Consumer advocates, congressional Democrats, and their party's presidential nominee, John Kerry, vowed legislative action to end managed care's immunity, setting up a struggle with the Bush administration, which backed the industry in Aetna v. Davila. What does this mean for patients and physicians?"
    • Back to the Future

      Miller, Jeremy M. (1989)
      When Ernest Hemingway wrote his quasi-tragic masterpiece 'The Sun Also Rises,' a story of love and loss, and how pretty life could have been he was only writing that there is nothing new under the sun. Such is an aspect of the human condition. In a previous work, I delineated the problem in the present understanding of legal ethics, and suggested a new hierarchy of lawyer loyalties. These were to include a higher duty of loyalty to protecting the individual autonomy values as best enshrined in the first amendment, a secondary duty to the lawyer's own conscience, a tertiary duty to the law of the land, and remaining duties to the particular client and society in that order. The calm perspective of history indicates the above proposal to be in the mainstream - even though presently it is not. Thus, for the major purpose of gaining a better perspective on the present situation, the lawyer and legal ethics of the past will be discussed. It is hoped that there will be lessons learned from parts of this brief history.
    • Backdating

      Kwall, Jeffrey L.; Duhl, Stuart (2008)
      Backdating is a much misunderstood and largely unexplored subject. It involves a wide range of conduct, some of which is an integral part of everyday law practice. To the layperson, backdating connotes wrongdoing. The propriety of backdating, however, depends upon its purpose and effect. Every lawyer should be capable of distinguishing legitimate backdating from improper backdating. Unfortunately, the dividing line is often far from clear. Little guidance exists on backdating, notwithstanding its pervasiveness, the complexity of determining its propriety, and the serious consequences of a misjudgment. An in-depth examination of the day-to-day backdating issues that most business lawyers face cannot be found in the literature. This Article begins to fill that void. This Article explains the different meanings of backdating, explores the reasons why it is difficult to distinguish legitimate backdating from improper backdating, examines the impact of disclosure on the propriety of backdating, and develops an analytical approach to assist business lawyers in wrestling with the difficult situations most will confront in their daily practices. By illuminating the subject, it is hoped that this Article will begin a much needed dialogue about backdating.
    • Background of the of human life development and reflections on abortion

      Paloschi Spiandorello, Wilson (Conselho Federal de Medicina, 2012)
      "This article reflects upon abortion with a little explored vision that covers all stages of the human being development. It analyzes the moral recognition of the human being, since it is based on decision-making processes in order to justify abortion. Following that, it tries to classify the reproduction in three different and welldefined procedures: pre-conception, pregnancy and maintenance. Due to is philosophical nature, it intends to demonstrate the reproduction as a processes that develops over time. Under this view, the moral recognition of the human being existence loses the importance attributed to it and justifies the completion of abortion in special cases. The article aims to describe the process of the human being creation and its logical analysis without, however, deepening in ethical discussions part of each stage."
