Introduction I never thought I’d be a teacher! Now I am a teacher I don’t want it to be like it was for me when I was a student. I want teaching to be interesting, something which I care about and which I enjoy. I don’t want it to become a drag. We have been working with new lecturers on induction and initial training courses at Oxford and Bristol Polytechnics since 1975. We have a good feel for the problems and anxieties they face. They don’t want educational theory and they don’t want to be told to abandon their course and do something radical on day

In the early hours of January 4th 1944 a Wellington bomber of the RAF crashed in Brockhurst wood near the village of Farnham Common. Of the crew of six only one survived. After the war the people of the village clubbed together for a memorial and installed a stained glass window in the Anglican Church of St. John’s nearby. Forty years later Mrs. Florence Payne, mother of the dead rear-gunner, Sergeant Victor Payne, returned on a pilgrimage,  revisiting the site and the church. The local newspaper covered the visit in a moving story and raised  questions in the mind of

This work puts hands and feet to the demands of the Sermon on the Mount from the viewpoint of a writer who believes they are not only viable, but inescapable - something for us to live out today. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus puts aside his usual parables and speaks plainly in language anyone can understand. Yet for centuries countless scholars have dissected and analyzed these important words - and dismissed their demanding precepts as unrealistic or symbolic. Like Francis of Assisi and others, Arnold chose to live Jesus’ words. He found new life by embracing the self-sacrificing de

Reading Contemporary Indonesian Muslim Women Writers looks at the work of four writers—Titis Basino P.I., Ratna Indraswari Ibrahim, Abidah El Kalieqy, and Helvy Tiana Rosa—paying particular attention to questions of how gender is constructed and in turn constructs the identities, roles, and status of Muslim women in Indonesia. In addition, Diah Ariani Arimbi focuses on issues of authenticity, representation, and power in these authors’ works and details how each woman challenged perceptions of Muslim women in Islamic societies.
