The Synoptic problem : a critical analysis by William R Farmer( Book )

22 editions published between 1964 and 1976 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this book is to do something to meet the need for a general renaissance in Gospel studies. If there is to be such a renewal in our time it will come only through a widespread revitalization of the discipline of Synoptic criticism. This book is written out of the conviction that the greatest single contribution to this revitalization that can be rendered at this time is to reopen the question of the Synoptic Problem." -- Preface

Jesus and the suffering servant : Isaiah 53 and Christian origins( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did Jesus of Nazareth live and die without the teaching about the righteous Servant of the Lord in Isaiah 53 having exerted any significant influence on his ministry? Is it probable that this text exerted no significant influence upon Jesus' understanding of the plan of God to save the nations that the prophet Isaiah sets forth? Did the use of Isaiah 53 to interpret his mission actually begin with Jesus? Would it have been possible for Jesus to have acted so unnaturally as to have died for the unjust without reference to Isaiah's teaching about the Suffering Servant who poured out his soul to death and bore the sins of many? These are the kinds of questions that were in the minds of those who organized a conference on 'Isaiah 53 and Christian Origins' at Baylor University in the fall of 1995. The principal papers from that conference are now available in this book, with contributions by Morna D. Hooker, Paul D. Hanson, Henning Graf Reventlow, R.E. Clements, Otto Betz, N.T. Wright, and others. Of particular note in these papers is the discovery that it may have been Paul rather than Jesus who first exploited the idea of atoning suffering in Isaiah 53. William H. Bellinger, Jr. is Professor of Old Testament at Baylor University. William R. Farmer is Professor of New Testament at the University of Dallas and Editor of the 'International Catholic Bible Commentary'"--Publisher description

Now, from an author team that includes one of the world's pioneers in the field, Holographic Imaging fills this need with a single, comprehensive text that covers the subject from traditional holography to the cutting-edge development of the world's most advanced three-dimensional holographic images, holographic printing, and holographic video. Written in an engaging and easy-to-follow style, Holographic Imaging promotes a hands-on approach to making holograms and provides readers with a working understanding of how and why they work." "Helpful diagrams and equations that summarize the mathematical and physical principles for each technique discussed make this an approachable resource for readers from a variety of backgrounds, including undergraduate and postgraduate students with an interest in optics, optoelectronics, and information display, as well as researchers, scientists, engineers, and technology-savvy artists."--Jacket
