"Mission is handicapped without a sound biblical theology of mission and an understanding of the history of mission leading up to our current context. Constants in Context offers both of these elements. It is mission theology in historical perspective and/or a history of mission that is grounded theologically. The authors describe it as a systematic theology with mission at its core, and a church history shaped by the constant but always contextual Christian traditions. Furthermore it is a constructive contribution to how mission theology needs to be practical and lived out through today's church and in our world. Written collaboratively by Roman Catholic writers Stephen Bevans and Roger Schroeder, both Missionaries of the Divine Word (SVDs). It is a particularly insightful in regard to the history and the various streams of Catholic mission but it also addresses and learns from the other traditions of the church. In fact, one of the book's strengths is its attention to neglected aspects and hidden stories of church and mission history. As a result it is gratifying to be inspired by non-European mission, women in mission and various forgotten or often ignored branches of the church. The book is in three sections: first, there is a framework for cultural contexts and theological constants; second, an in-depth exploration of historical stages and different models for mission; and third, a presentation of theological frameworks for mission. The third section concludes with a case for 'mission as prophetic dialogue' being the most appropriate model for 21st century mission." -- Amazon.com.

The intent of this paper is to seek a deeper theological understanding of voluntary mission as an expression of the Edmund Rice Charism. The dissertation will consider mission conducted in the Edmund Rice Tradition in the light of the missiology of Steven Bevans. The paper is focused on a particular element of the Edmund Rice Network's missionary endeavours - namely the Edmund Rice volunteer programme emerging within the Edmund Rice Network. Initially key theological insights will be drawn from Bevans so that they can be used as a catalyst for an examination and discussion of the Edmund Rice Volunteer Programme. The intention is to inform and corroborate that mission conducted in the Edmund Rice Tradition exists as part of and belongs within a much broader theological context. This paper operates from the contention that an expanded theological understanding of mission will assist those engaged in short term volunteer mission in the Edmund Rice Tradition to be cognizant of the broader nature, context and purpose of the programme in which they are engaged. Furthermore, that this heightened theological understanding will assist volunteers to appreciate and therefore attend to the compassionate, human development and faith formation intentions espoused and intended. Bevan's methodology suggests that mission, indeed church itself, can be understood as 'constants' in 'contexts'. This notion sets the course for this paper. Initially this paper will consider Bevans' missiology and his notion of 'constants in context' in a way that lays the foundations for the ensuing exploration of the Edmund Rice Volunteer programme. Bevans' methodology provides the framework to articulate a selection of the 'constants' of the Edmund Rice volunteer programme and identify examples of the 'contexts' in which volunteers find themselves. Seeking to identify the 'constants' of the programme will involve a discussion of the Charism of Edmund Rice as it is currently understood and the theological principles that form the foundations of the Volunteer programme. Furthermore, the dissertation will acknowledge the capacity of 'contexts' within which Edmund Rice mission is conducted to inform and influence mission. As the Edmund Rice Network seeks to develop its own agreed missiology for overseas mission, this paper will identify selected strategies, in response to Bevans' missiology, that warrant further exploration. Finally, conclusions will be drawn in keeping with the intention to inform and corroborate short term volunteer mission conducted in the Edmund Rice Tradition.

This monograph focuses on optimal flow analysis of sequential and parallel programs. It studies algorithmic properties of various versions of the well-known constant-propagation problem, combining techniques from such diverse areas as linear algebra, computable ring theory, abstract interpretation, program verification and complexity theory. This combination of techniques is the key to further progress in automatic analysis and constant-propagation illustrates this point in a theoretical study.

"While the intent of the editors is to honor Steve Bevans, SVD, a towering figure in the field of missiology and a longtime author of Orbis books on missiology, this book will be designed less as a festschrift than as a textbook for classroom use. Designed around the three main foci of Bevans' theology (mission, contextual theologies, and dialogical theory), it will appeal to teachers of courses in Christian mission, theological method, contextual theologies, and contemporary Third World theologies. The contributors are a who's who of contemporary mission studies in a global context, including representatives from various Christian traditions and from throughout the global church"--

First published in 1997, this volume constitutes an attempt to resolve certain misunderstandings and ignorance concerning the constants of Nature. Its purpose is to look closely at the philosophical arguments made to support the customary conventional view of measurement, particularly with regard to constants. Peter Johnson argues that historic accounts provide only a partial understanding of the nature of constants, and that the conventionalism that rises relates only to the numerical representations used to quantify the measurement of quantities.

This volume includes a selection of papers that address a wide range of acquisition phenomena from different Romance languages and all share a common theoretical approach based on the Principles and Parameters theory. They favour, discuss and sometimes challenge traditional explanations of first and second language acquisition in terms of maturation of general principles universal to all languages. They all depart from the view that language acquisition can be explained in terms of learning language specific rules, constraints or structures. The different parts into which this volume is organized reflect different approaches that current research has offered, which deal with issues of development of reflexive pronouns, determiners, clitics, verbs, auxiliaries, Inflection, wh-movement, rssumptive pronouns, topic and focus, mood, the syntax/discourse interface, topic and focus, and null arguments.

The object of this NATO Advanced Study Institute was to pre sent a tutorial 'introduction both to the basic physics of recent spectacular advances achieved in the field of metrology and to the determination of fundamental physical constants. When humans began to qualify their description of natural phenomena, metrology, the science of measurement, developed along side geometry and mathematics. However, flam antiquity to modern times, the role of metrology was mostly restricted to the need of commercial, social or scientific transactions of local or at most national scope. Beginning with the Renaissance, and particularly in western Europe during the last century, metrology rapidly developed an international character as a result of growing needs for more accurate measurements and common standards in the emerging indus trial society. Although the concerns of metrology are deeply rooted to fundamental sciences, it was, until recently, perceived by much of the scientific community as mostly custodial in character.

First published in 1975, A Constant Burden was a truly ground-breaking text in the field of medical sociology and has since become an undisputed classic. Over thirty years later this revised edition gives new life to this important work. It contains the same seminal study of families with a disabled child, based on an analysis of interviews with parents about the effects of their child's disability on their family life. Whereas much of the contemporary research assumed that the presence of such a child must constitute a problem, and attempted to read parents' responses as indicators of the family's psychological and social adjustment to this 'reality', Voysey Paun's analysis takes a radically different stance. She shows that what parents say should rather be understood as socially constructed accounts of 'normal parenting' which induce others to identify them as properly fulfilling their responsibilities as good parents. Voysey Paun's approach to the analysis and interpretation of interview responses has become a much more central theme for sociological research, instrumental in changing theories about the nature of disability and the family as expressed by sociologists, social workers and other agencies. The revised edition contains a new introduction which puts the study in its intellectual context. It will be essential reading in the sociology of health and illness, and will also be of interest to social workers and other professionals concerned with disability and family life.
