A Doubter's Guide To The Bible

RRP $19.99

The Bible is the most influential book in history, yet remains unexplored by many. In A Doubter's Guide to the Bible, John Dickson gives those observing Christianity from the outside a sense of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires.

A Doubter's Guide to the Bible is a concise account of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires, representing a unique and engaging framework for those observing Christianity from the outside, especially those who think there are good reasons not to believe.

In this book, Dickson provides a readable and winsome Bible primer summarizing the main themes in scripture, and addresses tough questions such as "How can we read the creation account in Genesis in light of modern science " and, "how do we approach Old Testament law when it appears inconsistent and irrelevant"

By presenting the whole of the Bible as an account of God's promise to restore humanity to Himself, and humanity to one another and to creation, Dickson allows believers and skeptics alike to gain insight into why the Bible has been a compelling, life-changing, and magnetic force throughout the ages.

A Guide To Simulation

RRP $50.00

Changes and additions are sprinkled throughout. Among the significant new features are: * Markov-chain simulation (Sections 1. 3, 2. 6, 3. 6, 4. 3, 5. 4. 5, and 5. 5); * gradient estimation (Sections 1. 6, 2. 5, and 4. 9); * better handling of asynchronous observations (Sections 3. 3 and 3. 6); * radically updated treatment of indirect estimation (Section 3. 3); * new section on standardized time series (Section 3. 8); * better way to generate random integers (Section 6. 7. 1) and fractions (Appendix L, program UNIFL); * thirty-seven new problems plus improvements of old problems. Helpful comments by Peter Glynn, Barry Nelson, Lee Schruben, and Pierre Trudeau stimulated several changes. Our new random integer routine extends ideas of Aarni Perko. Our new random fraction routine implements Pierre L'Ecuyer's recommended composite generator and provides seeds to produce disjoint streams. We thank Springer-Verlag and its late editor, Walter Kaufmann-Bilhler, for inviting us to update the book for its second edition. Working with them has been a pleasure. Denise St-Michel again contributed invaluable text-editing assistance. Preface to the First Edition Simulation means driving a model of a system with suitable inputs and observing the corresponding outputs. It is widely applied in engineering, in business, and in the physical and social sciences.
