Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software
Capturing a wealth of experience about the design of object-oriented software, four top-notch designers present a catalog of simple and succinct solutions to commonly occurring design problems. Previously undocumented, these 23 patterns allow designers to create more flexible, elegant, and ultimately reusable designs without having to rediscover the design solutions themselves.

The authors begin by describing what patterns are and how they can help you design object-oriented software. They then go on to systematically name, explain, evaluate, and catalog recurring designs in object-oriented systems. With Design Patterns as your guide, you will learn how these important patterns fit into the software development process, and how you can leverage them to solve your own design problems most efficiently.

Each pattern describes the circumstances in which it is applicable, when it can be applied in view of other design constraints, and the consequences and trade-offs of using the pattern within a larger design. All patterns are compiled from real systems and are based on real-world examples. Each pattern also includes code that demonstrates how it may be implemented in object-oriented programming languages like C++ or Smalltalk.

Entire four-volume set in one-volume!

This is the ONLY Bible that includes the complete Hebrew and Greek texts with a direct English translation below each word. It also includes "The Literal Translation of the Bible" in the outside column, so you can easily read through the Bible. Strong's numbers are printed directly above the Hebrew and Greek words so you don't need prior knowledge of Greek or Hebrew to dig even deeper into Scripture and its meaning.

Most Bibles Don't Show ALL the Hebrew and Greek Keywords—Imagine Having One that Does!

Keyword Study Bibles are great—but most only show some select keywords. This is the only Bible that goes through ALL the words—showing the Old Testament Hebrew, New Testament Greek, and the English translation side-by-side!

Quickly see which Hebrew or Greek word is used in EACH verse—at a glance.

This is a must-have Bible (and study tool)! Use it as your primary translation or along side other translations to dig deeper.

Enjoy Having These Key Features at Your Fingertips

The majority of believers (including pastors) are unable to read biblical Hebrew and Greek. But that no longer means you can't enjoy the Bible in its original languages. This easy-to-use Bible does the first step of a word-study for you, saving you time and making it easier to read through the Bible.

Enjoy having these features at your fingertips:

  • Side-by-Side Translations—Conveniently includes the entire Hebrew and Greek texts and English translation of the Bible in one place!
  • Easy-to-understand—You don't need to know Greek or Hebrew to read this Bible. The English and literal translations are included. Plus each word is already keyed to the Exhaustive Strong's Concordance: so you can dig deeper into each word's meaning
  • Accurate—It includes a concise, literal translation of each Greek and Hebrew word, it's a great jumping off point for in-depth Bible study. It even includes extra study resources, such as Christ in the Old Testament!
  • Easy-to-Use—This Bible used to only be available in 4 separate volumes (making it hard to carry with you). But this version combines ALL 4 volumes into one easy-to-use Bible.

Please Note: Due to the amount of information covered, this Bible's font size is slightly smaller than the average Bible, but is definitely still readable (4-5pts). Any larger font would require multiple volumes.

See the Bible's Original Languages and Their Translation Side-by-Side

The translation is shown IN LINE, which means you don't lose your place by having to look at footnotes, flipping to the back of your Bible, or consulting another resource. You can see the original language and its translation side-by-side in ONE Bible.

Catecismo de la Iglesia Catolica (Spanish Edition)

Here it is -- the first new Catechism of the Catholic Church in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means "instruction") that will serve as the standarad for all future catechisms.

The Catechism draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. It comes with a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord's Prayer), the Catechism of the Catholic Church offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith. Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, "a special gift."

Confessions (Penguin Classics)
The son of a pagan father and a Christian mother, Saint Augustine spent his early years torn between conflicting faiths and world views. His Confessions, written when he was in his forties, recount how, slowly and painfully, he came to turn away from his youthful ideas and licentious lifestyle, to become instead a staunch advocate of Christianity and one of its most influential thinkers. A remarkably honest and revealing spiritual autobiography, the Confessions also address fundamental issues of Christian doctrine, and many of the prayers and meditations it includes are still an integral part of the practice of Christianity today.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
