5.0 out of 5 stars Marcus Borg's insight., 30 Oct. 2011
A Lutheran Marcus Borg was up at Oxford with Tom Wright, later to be Bishop of Durham. At Oxford J.B.Caird was one of their Tutors. Borg and Wright co-authored "The meaning of Jesus" - a valuable addition to any bookshelf.
Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan (a one-time Roman Catholic priest) co-authored "The First Christmas" and "The Last Week" each of which are insightful and expressed with characterist clarity.
In his "Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary" Marcus Borg draws together, against the backgound of Israel under Roman domination, what influenced Jesus' ministry as a 'Jewish Mystic' filled with the Holy Spirit of God. Borg's analysis is incisive, frequently taking the reader back to the underlying Hebrew or Aramaic meaning of the words found in today's translations from the Greek. Particularly valuable is Borg's expression of his understanding of experiences of the spiritual and the 'numinous' leading, with supportive scriptural evidence, to a closer appreciation of the mind of Jesus and His relationship with 'Abba'. In addition to the scholarship incorporated in his writing Borg achieves a lucid readability in his text which makes it a joy to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Optio 550 remote control., 2 July 2011
Because the Pentax Optio 550 has been out of production for a while now I did not expect to find an effective remote control available. I was wrong. This is it and it works perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars An altogether excellent LCD monitor., 12 April 2010
This LCD monitor worked 'straight out of the box'. I did later install the driver supplied on the DVD - it took only a matter of moments.
Setting up using the menu does require that at least the relevant pages of the user manual be printed out from the PDF file found on the DVD. After that the step-by-step process is OK, if a bit clunky. Patience wins !
An excellent product at a fair price. LG W1942S-PF 19 inch LCD Monitor 16:10 - Gloss Black
Thank you LG and Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intelligently designed long-reach hedgetrimmer., 12 Sept. 2009
I have had this machine for about 12 months now. At first I was concerned that 45-50 minutes running time between charges of the battery would not suffice. I need not have worried. I have just finished trimming a 156 foot long eleagnus hedge which is about 5.5ft high and some 8ft accross. I was able to complete the task without the battery running out and (largely) without recourse to having to stand on a stool. It cuts cleanly and without hesitation - in that regard it is better than either of the other two B & D electric hedge trimmers which I have and better than my Flymo hedge trimmer.
It is indeed well-balanced but because of its length it can impose quite a strain if held, otherwise unsupported, by one end with both hands. Generally speaking that hold can be avoided.
In short I am delighted with my B&D GTC800 Pole Hedgetrimmer. It was that delight that moved me to write this review.Black & Decker GTC800 Pole Hedgetrimmer 18v
