Latin Vulgate Bible: Matthew to Revelation (SPQR Study Guides)

by St Jerome

This new edition of the Latin Vulgate Bible is the perfect study guide for students looking to tackle the text. Each verse is presented individually, first in its original Vulgate Latin, then in the Douay-Rheims English translation. The Douay-Rheims was selected because it most closely mimics the Vulgate’s Latin, helping students gain a clearer understanding of how the two fit together.

But what makes this edition so special is that each passage is followed by the running Latin vocabulary in the order used in that chapter, with each word presented in its root form alongside a comprehensive English translation – never again will you have to struggle through unknown words or difficult conjugations. This unique feature allows readers of all levels to understand even the most complicated parts of the Bible in its original Latin.

This book also features a multi-level table of contents, to help you navigate to any verse in the Bible in just three taps – select a book, then a chapter, then a verse, and you’re done.

Due to the size of this work, it’s available in five parts: the Pentateuch (Genesis to Deuteronomy), the Historical Books (Joshua to 2 Maccabees), the Sapiental Books (Job to Sirach), the Prophetic Books (Isaiah to Malachi), and the New Testament (Matthew to Revelation).

101 Fiction Writing Tips

by Quentin Cope

Fiction writing is thought by many would be authors to be the most popular published genre and therefore perhaps the best to be aiming at when considering a writing career.

Current best estimates are that in 2016, published books will double in number from all of those in existence at the end of 2011. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to get two knowledgeable individuals to agree on what that figure is in reality.

However, one reasonably sound statistic is the percentage of fiction and non-fiction publications now produced annually in the English language. The current estimates are around 30% for fiction and 70% for non-fiction.

So, the lesson to learn there then, is that you may stand a considerably better chance of success as a writer by putting together a book of your grandmother’s best apple pie secrets than attempting the possibly thankless task of coming face to face with the prospect of writing a novel â?¦ a work of fiction â?¦ a work of fantasy, a work that will need to find a particular audience.

This book is not an answer to that quandary and neither does it offer any form of guarantee to you as a potential author. What is does provide however, is a list of 101 tips of advice and reference to the writer who simply wants’ to â??get on with the job!’ These offerings are provided from personal experience of both the self-publishing and traditional publishing routes.

They are collected together in this short book format with the sole aim of supplying you, the potential writer of fantastic fiction, with a series of easy to absorb statements and explanations written in a language that is uncomplicated and to the point. Hopefully, some or much of it will afford you the help and assistance you may be looking for and therefore energize you in the pursuit of your writing projects.

Good Luck â?¦.

Get Accepted Quickly Into a PhD Program in the Sciences

by Bradley C. Christian

You want to get accepted into a PhD program in the sciences and you want to get stipends and grants. As a former program manager, I can tell you how to do it in a few, easy steps by sharing the secrets only application reviewers know. To name a few:

1. Your application is reviewed by a real person who has a voice in the selection process the moment it is submitted. The department does not wait until the application deadline, so neither should you.

2. Programs do NOT want official transcripts sent to them during the application process.

3. Forget about the notion that the highest GPA and the highest GRE scorers will fill all the slots.

4. If you take the GRE more than once, your highest scores from each section of each test are used.

5. The single most important factor in getting accepted? Your ability to intelligibly discuss your research.

6. Your application is a snapshot in time. It will never update, no matter what you add later.

7. One of the ways the federal government wants their money spent is on underrepresented minorities.

8. Write intelligibly and excitedly about your research focus.

9. Marginal and mediocre applicants can be recommended for offers even when they do not have the 3.0 GPA, GRE scores in the 50th percentile or even speak English well.

10. If all things are equal, the tiebreaker is the letters of recommendation from people who can attest to the quality of your research.
