Although none of the author-editors of the four canonical gospels walked with Jesus, embedded clues point to written source materials emanating from disciples who did: particularly the found Gospel of Thomas, the lost Gospel of Q1 and an inferred lost Gospel of Early John. While used and changed radically by the later evangelists, especially Mark and John, embedded source elements permit a surprising new reconstruction of the life of Jesus. After his crucifixion by the Romans, three divergent streams of belief represented by Judas Thomas the Twin, James brother of Jesus, and Paul of Tarsus progressed and collided, culminating in the scriptural ascendancy of the Pauline viewpoint following the Roman-Jewish War.

Recent research and clinical work have demonstrated that the rapid urologic innovation in minimally invasive treatment is creating exciting new horizons in endourology. This sixth volume in the series Recent Advances in Endourology brings that knowledge to a wider audience, focusing on the new concept of endourooncology, which is the merging of endourology and oncology. In the surgical treatment of urologic malignancies, bipolarization - that is, radical extended resection or organ-sparing surgery - is making remarkable advances. Further developments in sophisticated reconstructive surgery using robotic systems and image-guided ablation technology will allow surgeons to formulate minimally invasive, tailor-made procedures for each patient with urologic cancer. In this book, the current status and future prospects of these new technologies are reviewed, illuminating their roles in the future of endourooncology.

Now in full color, The Anatomical Basis of Dentistry helps you master the essentials of gross anatomy! Complete, accurate coverage highlights the regions of the head and neck that are of clinical relevance. Core information provides a foundation of knowledge essential to providing a successful chairside experience for both you and the patient. Using a clear, accessible style, with practical Clinical Notes boxes, this book closely relates the basic science of applied anatomy to the clinical practice of dentistry. A focus on core information specifically highlights the regions of the head and neck along with the abdomen and thorax, serving as a foundation for the other basic sciences and for subsequent clinical courses. Coverage of applied anatomy draws correlations between the basic science of anatomy and clinical practice of dentistry. General Concepts chapter includes anatomical terminology and provides a general description of each body system in preparation for the regional anatomy topics that follow. A regional approach reflects the order in which the regions are commonly taught, by showing structures representing several systems -- which parallels the manner in which structures are encountered in patients. Full-color cadaver dissection photos clearly depict the location of anatomic structures, showing anatomical details impossible to view in clinical examination. Chapters on limbs provide a more complete picture of the body, covering areas that may be possible sites for intravenous and intramuscular injections. Applied Anatomy chapter relates anatomy to the clinical practice of dentistry, covering topics such as the anatomy of local anesthesia, imaging (including intraoral, extraoral, and MRI), fractures of the face, and the spread of dental infection. Clinical Notes boxes relate basic science concepts to actual scenarios that may be encountered in clinical practice. Review questions in multiple-choice format help you assess your understanding and provide good preparation for the NBDE. Full-color photos and drawings clearly demonstrate core concepts and reinforce important principles. New information on the back enhances your understanding of body systems with coverage of the surface features of the back, movements of the spine, and a new Clinical Notes box on back strain. New information on the neck includes the movements of the head and neck, and a new table detailing the muscles responsible for those movements. Added coverage of applied anatomy includes a new section with illustrations of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), a new section on Alveolar Ridge Tomography, and more images of the TMJ. An Evolve website includes a 300-question test bank and image collection for instructors and a self-assessment exam for students.

This new work, the final compilation of Cawdrey’s writings, was his most popular and well-received treatise on Family Reformation. He urged William Gouge, who wrote “Of Domestical Duties” which was almost exhaustive on the reformation of the family, to condense a smaller work that would be more manageable for the laity. Cawdrey took this task up himself with Gouge’s blessing. As a result, this work on Family Reformation became exceedingly popular. It covers the duties of husbands to wives, wives to husbands, children’s duties, as well as master and slaves. Cawdrey also includes a catechism to confirm the teachings of biblical truth in a reformed family. Also included in this volume are the last of Cawdrey’s known works covering humility, the effects of a good man on the community in which he lives, as well as a short scholarly treatise on the role of the magistrate called “The Depths of Satan Discovered.” This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
