Paul Jessop and James Handle are two fourteen-year-olds who have known each other all their lives. One very warm day while out roaming through the local countryside and woods, not far from home, they're suddenly surprised when they spot a naturist rambler. Having never seen anyone walk about like this before their curiosity gets the better of them and they decide to follow him. It leads to them finding out about a naturist swim at their own local leisure centre and, after deducing what the word 'naturist' means, want to find a way of getting in to see for themselves what's going on. However, this is far from straightforward and, as you might guess, they're both very reserved boys. They manage to get in without being seen, but how? Who do they meet? Do they make any friends, and what's more; do they get away with it? What will their parents say if they find out? Read the full story and discover the delights of naturism for yourself.

This book produces a summary of the most important frequently asked questions about St Paul, his world and his writings. There are answers to the basic questions: - on Paul as a person - on his communities and companions - on his letters, his theology, his ethics, and his legacy (Adapted from back cover).
Distinguished Pauline scholars offer an insightful examination of Paul and his world, using carefully chosen examples to demonstrate how particular features of Greco-Roman culture shed light on Paul's letters and on his readers' possible perceptions of them.
Considering apostle Paul's importance and influence, and the important sources for the study of Paul, this second edition examines: the earliest period of Christianity - from Jesus to Paul; Paul's life before and after his 'conversion'; his individual letters; the major elements of his theology; his attitude to Israel and the Jewish law; and more.
Making use of his scholar's understanding, yet writing in an approachable and anecdotal style, Tom Wright captures the verve and sparkle of these letters. Paul wrote the letters while in prison facing possible death, but their passion and energy are undimmed. They reveal Paul's longing to see young churches grow in faith and understanding, rooted in Jesus himself, and to see this faith worked out in practice. Wright's stimulating comments are combined with his own fresh and inviting translation of the text. Tom Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament, and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. A glossary is included at the back of the book. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.
What does it mean to study Paul the Apostle as Jew, Greek, and Roman? The framing of the question exposes the fact that the distinctions themselves involve a complex of ethnic, social, and cultural designations. Paul is both a complicated individual of the ancient world, because he combines in his one personage features of life in each of these cultural-ethnic (and even religious) areas of the ancient world, and one of many people of that world who evidenced such complexity. This volume, Paul: Jew, Greek, and Roman, explores a number of the important and diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious dimensions of the multi-faceted background of Paul the Apostle. Some of the treatments are focused and specific, while others range over the broad issues that go to making up the world of the Apostle.
"Paul Henry (1876-1958) is Ireland's greatest twentieth-century landscape painter. Trained in fin de siecle Paris under Whistler, he also absorbed the influences of Post-Impressionism, which linger in his work throughout his life. In his depictions of the landscapes and of the way of life in the west of Ireland in his time, Henry provides the quintessential view of the Irish scene, now as universally familiar as Cezanne's view of Provence or Constable's representations of Suffolk. In his own words, he wanted to capture in his work the very soul of Ireland, and he did so at a time of momentous social and political change as the Ireland we know today emerged as an independent state. A detailed biography of the artist is followed by an illustrated catalogue of his oeuvre in this comprehensive book. While many of Henry's paintings are well known, his drawings and early illustrations remain largely unknown, yet they provide an intriguing insight not only into the artist's way of working but to his lifestyle and personal circumstances."--Résumé de l'éditeur.
