The contents of this book first appeared in print as a series of 24 articles in the Christadelphian Tidings in 1999-2000. During the run of the monthly installments, the editor received numerous requests for publication in book form. The present volume represents both the editor´s and the author´s commitment to meet what seems a fervent and widespread desire for substantive material on the issue of faith. To that end, we have rewritten, and slightly expanded, the material into a cohesive book format. I would like to emphasize that this book is about faith. I say this because I expect that the book will become known popularly as "the book about legalism". But it is not a book about legalism any more than, for example, the account of the flood is about sin. It is about God´s grace, in saving Noah and his family, which we see more clearly in the context of judgment, but which God implemented in the context of salvation. This book uses the investigational tool of contrast; it is a searching study of faith from the perspective of stripping away all those things that we can mistake for faith. If we see clearly how we can mistake legalism for faith, then we will be able to prepare ourselves more appropriately for the life-long development of our faith. It is my hope and prayer that these studies, over 15 years in the making thus far, will stimulate our minds to the critical perception of faith and the appreciation of grace. 1. Language: English.

Now in its third edition and supplemented with more online material, this book aims to make the new information-based (rather than gene-based) bioinformatics intelligible both to the bio people and the info people. Books on bioinformatics have traditionally served gene-hunters, and biologists who wish to construct family trees showing tidy lines of descent. While dealing extensively with the exciting topics of gene discovery and database-searching, such books have hardly considered genomes as information channels through which multiple forms and levels of information have passed through the generations. This new bioinformatics contrasts with the old gene-based bioinformatics that so preoccupies previous texts. Forms of information that we are familiar with (mental, textual) are related to forms with which we are less familiar (hereditary). The book extends a line of evolutionary thought that leads from the nineteenth century (Darwin, Butler, Romanes, Bateson), through the twentieth (Goldschmidt, White), and into the twenty first (the final works of the late Stephen Jay Gould). Long an area of controversy, diverging views may now be reconciled. Donald Forsdyke graduated from St. Marys Hospital, London University, UK in 1961. After house appointments at St.Marys (Medical Unit and Department of Psychiatry) and the Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge (Surgery), he began research in Molecular Biology and Cellular Immunology at the Department of Biochemistry, Cambridge (Ph.D. 1967). He was appointed to what was then the Department of Biochemistry at Queens University in 1968. In 2013 he became President of the John Austin Society for the History of Medicine and Science.
Anne Frank wrote a diary from the age of 13 as she hid for over two years in the back of an Amsterdam warehouse escaping the horrors of Nazi occupation. An intimate record of adolescence and confinement, anger and heartbreak, it is among the most enduring documents of the 20th century. Famed throughout the world and read by tens of millions of people in many different translations, it remains a beloved and deeply admired testament to the indestructible nature of the human spirit. Recently discovered documents and photographs of Anne and her family, including letters from her, her father´s letters from Auschwitz and his poignant descriptions of searching for his family after the war, have been made into a family saga by Mirjam Pressler, the editor of the definitive edition of the Diary. The book, which reads like a novel, recounts the story of Anne´s family before, during and after the war. It contrasts the normality of family life with the horrors of persecution, deportation, and the concentration camps, and through it we gain new insight into Anne and her iconic diary, one of those unique documents that portray innocence and humanity, suffering and survival in the starkest and most moving terms. 1.
