Australia Joint Board of Christian Education 1989 0858197782 / 9780858197787 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
108 pages including b/w illustrations. "Come, Holy Spirit - Renew the Whole Creation." That prayer is the theme chosen for the Seventh Assembly of the World Council of Churches, which will meet in Canberra, Australia, 7 to 20 February 1991. Presented in this book are six Bible studies around the Assembly theme. Beginning with our confession of faith in the Holy Spirit, we go on to study the theme as a whole, and the four sub-themes which provide the link between our confession and the demands it makes on us as we try to live our faith from day to day. Included in each study is a wealth of comments and testimonies from friends in many parts of the world. By being involved in these studies as groups of Christian people, all of us can prepare for and contribute to the Canberra Assembly - and allow the renewal we pray for to start with us in our congregation and our local community.

Universal Man, Abd-al-Karim al-Jili
2 Abd-al-Karim al-Jili Universal Man
UK Beshara Publications 1995 0904975150 / 9780904975154 Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
75 pages. Abd al-Karim al-Jili, or Abdul Karim Jili was a Muslim sufi saint and mystic who was born in 1366 at Jil in Baghdad. He is famous in Muslim mysticism as the author of this book - "Universal Man". He travelled in India; lived for a time in Yemen, and died in 1403, at the age of 38. He produced more than twenty books. of which Universal Man (al-insan al-kamil) is the most celebrated. His teaching follows that of Muhyiddin ibn 'Arabi (‘the Greatest Sheikh'), of which it can be regarded as a systematic exposition. Universal Man is Man the Macrocosm, the complete image and manifested consciousness of God, exempli?ed and expressed in the lives of saintly individuals. ]ili's account therefore takes the form of a series of chapters on the appearances of Absolute Reality as Essence, Names, Qualities and Divinity. These appearances correspond to contemplative states encountered by the mystic on the path of Union, which are discussed more particularly in the later chapters. Jili's exposition is incisive and illuminating; his intention entirely practical. He writes: ‘I will mention of all that only that which happened to me on my own journey to God; moreover I recount nothing in this book, neither of myself nor of another, without my having tested it at the time when I travelled in God by the path of intuition and direct vision’. Titus Burckhardt has provided an extensive and helpful introduction to Jili's work, and commentary on the text.

Failure to recognise and address these difficulties can produce problems and frustrations for teachers and supervisors as well as for students. Brigid Ballard is Head of the Study Skills Centre at the Australian National University. John Clanchy is co-ordinator of the Graduate Teaching Program in the Graduate School in the same university.

The Wow Factor: Global Research Compendium on the Impact of the Arts in Education, Bamford, Anne
6 Bamford, Anne The Wow Factor: Global Research Compendium on the Impact of the Arts in Education
Germany Waxmann Verlag GmbH 2009 3830916175 / 9783830916178 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
178 pages. More than ever before, the arts are shaping and influencing our daily lives through the media and the creative industries. The arts are no longer confined to museums and theatres, but are adding value to our national economies and improving the quality of education. This has implications for arts education. However, unlike other subjects taught at schools, the arts have rarely made their purpose clear: Why are they taught? What is good arts education? And what are the benefits of teaching creative subjects or using creative ways to teach? In 2004 Professor Anne Bamford conducted the first international analysis of arts education research for UNESCO, in partnership with IFACCA and the Australia Council. Comparing data and case studies from more than 60 countries, the book analyses the differences between 'education in the arts' and 'education through the arts'. While appreciating that arts programmes are embedded in their unique social and cultural contexts, Professor Bamford develops internationally comparable standards for quality arts education. In addition, she identifies a number of concrete educational, cultural, and social benefits of arts education. This definitive work is of major interest to policy-makers, educators and artists.

116 pages. The increasing pressure for greater accountability which has accompanied recent economic changes has put assessment high on the educational agenda. There are four major groups requiring performance information: students, teachers, parents and educational systems. This book surveys some of the recent developments in language assessment, both in Australia and overseas, which attempt to satisfy the needs of these groups. It looks at some of the issues which surround these developments, raising questions about our views of knowledge and asking whether the needs of all groups can be satisfied by one form of assessment. It also looks at the way some systems and some teachers have tackled the issues and offers practical suggestions for organising assessment in the classroom. Chrystine Bouffler is Head of the School of Education at Ballarat University College. She has had a long involvement in teaching and literacy learning within Australia and overseas. She is well known to PETA members for her work on spelling - in particular, for her book Spell by Writing and PEN Spelling It Out to Parents, both written with Wendy Bean.

143 pages. Did Jesus rise from the dead? What happened to the body of Jesus? Are the writers of the Gospels reliable witnesses? The author selects some of the most prominent lawyers of modern times to sift through the evidence on the most influential figure of history. He describes the lawyers’ professional backgrounds, outlines their contributions to this 2000-year-old debate and reinforces their conclusions by some careful research of his own. A compelling case is made for the familiar claim of the Apostles’ Creed: ‘On the third day he rose again.’ While Ross Clifford believes that ‘the evidence would convince a court of law,’ he argues that we can't leave the matter there. The phenomenon of the resurrection strikes at the very heart of who we are and how we view human existence. inevitably, we find ourselves asking: What does it mean if Jesus did rise from the dead? How does it affect my understanding of life and death? If Jesus rose from the dead, what response does God require of me? Contents: 1. Who wrote the gospels? /? Edmund H. Bennett; 2. Are the gospels reliable, historical documents? /? John Warwick Montgomery; 3. Do the gospel writers speak the truth? /? Simon Greenleaf; 4. Do the gospel writers complement each other? /?

English Grammar: A Functional Approach, Collerson, John
20 Collerson, John English Grammar: A Functional Approach
Australia Primary English Teaching Association 1994 187562211X / 9781875622115 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
152 indexed pages. reases in the front cover, name in the front fly. At a time when increasing attention is being given to grammar by teachers and others, this book presents an introduction to English grammar based on a functional approach. lt is not intended as a grammar for teaching directly to school students but as a resource for teachers themselves. A functional grammar is more appropriate for teachers than traditional grammar because it can be more directly related to the ways in which language is being used. Fleaders who have some familiarity with traditional grammar will find this functional approach different from the traditional one, but they will recognise quite a number of familiar landmarks. However, the book has been written on the assumption that many readers may not be familiar with any grammar, and everything is clearly explained as the text unfolds. While this book does not deal explicitly with the teaching of grammar, it is based on the belief that teachers should be confident in their knowledge of the grammatical system. For the more the teacher knows about how the language operates, the more insight he or she will have into how students are using language in their speech and writing. The sort of systematic knowledge of grammar offered by this book becomes a resource to be drawn on continually in talking with students about language. Name in the first page.
