This battery works even better than the original in the first month of use. If this continues I would have no hesitation in getting another one when needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 5 Oct. 2011

Two-sided and thin card thickness makes excellent material for home made cards. Folds well and image quality really excellent (using Canon 4000 series inkjet printer). Wish I had discovered it before.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new series, 9 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Following the pattern of the "For Everyone" New Testament commentaries by Tom Wright, the series generates an original translation in sections suitable for daily reading, followed by a contemporary illustration and a short commentary.

John Goldingay writes in a gentle, gracious and scholarly way taking us through the creation story to Abraham. He faces the issues from a conservative perspective, whilst showing respect to those of other perspectives.

He treats the material in hand as having the capacity to be knowledge, knowledge that has faced postmodernist as well as liberal and fundamentalist critiques. He treats the OT text, scholarly knowledge and the interests of "everyone" with respect and understanding.

Goldingay is new to me and he seems to me to be, like William Barclay for the New Testament, a great scholar with an ability, often through quite sensitive personal illustrations, to communicate great insights, both personal and scholarly, to an "everyone" audience.

I learnt a great deal from his writing and look forward to reading the volumes that follow.
