A Doubter's Guide To The Bible
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.

Memoir Of The Rev. Sydney Smith 2 Volume Set
First published in 1855 and reissued here in the second edition of that year, this two-volume work celebrates the life of the author, wit and clergyman Sydney Smith (1771-1845). A founder of the second Edinburgh Review, Smith is best remembered for his entertaining observations and witticisms. The work comprises a memoir, written by Smith's daughter Saba Holland (1802-66), and a selection of letters, edited by Sarah Austin (1793-1867). Together, the volumes offer private insights into a man who lived much of his life in the public eye. Sharing her father's sense of humour, Holland peppers her memoir in Volume 1 with many of his best jokes, while also emphasising his character as a compassionate clergyman, loving father and dutiful friend. Volume 2 continues with Smith's letters, selected for the light that they shed on his character.
A Guide To The Icdr International Arbitration Rules
This commentary on the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) Rules is a comprehensive reference work for practitioners and arbitrators considering ICDR arbitration.
The International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) is the international division of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and given that an excess of 600 arbitrations are now administered every year under the ICDR Rules, this book answers the need for the first comparative guide devoted to them.
The ICDR International Arbitration Rules are structured in accordance with the typical life-cycle of an international arbitration and thus the book follows their thematic structure, providing ample cross-referencing to assist the reader in understanding the relationship between the various rules and genuine issues likely to be encountered during an arbitration. The commentary embraces each of the 37 articles in their entirety and includes discussion of how each provision compares to analogous rules of other major arbitral institutions.
The authors draw not only on their own experience, but on caselaw gathered from foreign jurisdictions and from the rich vein of caselaw in the US (applying the ICDR Rules and, where appropriate, analogous provisions of various AAA domestic rules). The work's comparative perspective helps to emphasize key issues to consider when drafting an arbitral clause or strategizing over the conduct of an arbitration.
A Guide to the ICDR International Arbitration Rules features multiple appendices and difficult-to-find resources to form a collection of core materials which include the ICDR Rules, the administrative fee schedule, guidelines for exchanges of information, practice notes and key AAA cooperation agreements with other institutions. Together, Gusy, Hosking and Schwarz form a strong author team of practitioners whose combined experience includes having co-chaired the ICDR's young Practitioner's group, collaborated with the ICDR and interviewed key ICDR senior management members.
