Jesus calls each of us to live in a way that gives the Father glory, shares his love with everyone around us, and reflects the life of Jesus. He invites us to scatter seed. Scattering seed can be a challenge, though, especially in our public lives, our professional lives, and volunteer lives. Those of us called to teach in some way feel the challenge deeply. We seek to share knowledge, experiences, and life lessons with a broad and varied group of people and do it in a way that shares Christ's love. Often life, curriculum challenges, and student chemistry threaten to derail our best laid plans. When this happens, it's easy to be distracted from our purpose or even to forget that our life calling is the same as our calling to teach. Scattering Seed in Teaching is about returning to that call, or perhaps connecting with it for the first time. It shares stories, interviews, and observations of teachers and students learning about scattering seed. It connects with biblical reminders and encourages us as teachers to reflect on and remember that underlying our professional call to teach is our life call . . . they are one and the same, to scatter seed.

As a teacher in an inner-city school, Lucy Crehan was exasperated with ever-changing government policy claiming to be based on lessons from ‘top-performing’ education systems. She resolved to find out what was really going on in the classrooms of countries whose teenagers ranked top in the world in reading, maths and science. Cleverlands documents Crehan’s journey around the world, weaving together her experiences with research on policy, history, psychology and culture to offer extensive new insights into what we can learn from these countries.

Oxford University Press adds to its prestigious list of parallel-text biblical-reference resources with the Evangelical Parallel New Testament. This volume features the New Testaments of eight translations used by various segments within the evangelical community today. It is particularly notable for including the recently published Holman Christian Standard Bible, The Message, the New Living Translation, and Today's New International Version. The texts are arranged on facing pages, with the texts of four translations on each page. The Evangelical Parallel New Testament shows the translation philosophies and word choices made by diverse groups of evangelical scholars during the last three decades of the twentieth century. This useful volume features three interesting essays: one on the specific characteristics of each translation and where it falls in the spectrum of approaches, a second on formal vs. functional equivalence in translation, and a third on the underlying Greek text of the New Testament.
