Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things - William McDonough, Michael Braungart"Reduce, reuse, recycle," urge environmentalists; in other words, do more with less in order to minimize damage. But as architect William McDonough and chemist Michael Braungart point out in this provocative, visionary book, such an approach only perpetuates the one-way, "cradle to grave" manufacturing model, dating to the Industrial Revolution, that creates such fantastic amounts of waste and pollution in the first place.

A Transition to Advanced Mathematics - Maurice Eggen, Douglas Smith, Richard St. AndreTRANSITION TO ADVANCED MATHEMATICS bridges the gap between calculus and advanced math in at least three ways. First, it guides students to think precisely and to express themselves mathematically-to analyze a situation, extract pertinent facts, and draw appropriate conclusions. Second, it provides a firm foundation of the basic concepts and methods needed for continued work. Finally, it provides introductions to concepts of modern algebra and analysis in sufficient depth to capture some of their spirit and characteristics. The text will improve the student's ability to think and write in a mature

Five Views on Law and Gospel - Greg L. BahnsenDo the Law and the Gospel belong to two separate dispensations? Has the Gospel replaced the Law?

It is no secret that Christians have differed widely on these questions. This book explores five major approaches to this important biblical topic that have developed in Protestant circles. Each of the five authors presents his particular perspective on the issue and responds to the other four.The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and
