In eigenen Worten:
Back in 2005 I decided to retire after a 29 year and 10 month career as an assistant state attorney. I now have a job as a legal skills professor at the University of Florida overseeing the prosecution clinic.

I have had three books published-- "Prosecution Principles: A Clinical Handbook," "The Last Murder: The Investigation, Prosecution, and Execution of Ted Bundy," and "Cross Examination Han… Mehr dazu

Myths We Live by: From the Life And Times of Jesus&hellip von Andrew C. Delos
1.0 von 5 Sternen Shoddy Scholarship, 7. Juni 2007
Professor Delos' book is not a scholarly work. On the contrary, the book is poorly researched, highly derivative, and inadequately referenced. Delos makes highly controversial claims (Jesus was a Pharisee, Luke's was the first Gospel written, Jesus was only pricked by the spear, the Sanhedrin had the power to inflict capital punishment, etc., etc.) without even so much as an attempt to substantiate his claims. A true scholar making such claims would support them with argument and references. Delos doesn't even support them with a footnote. The work of a scholar should show scholarly work. This book does not. A Few examples:

The First Lady says it takes a village to raise a child; in most cases a botched criminal prosecution also comes about as the result of multiple mistakes by multiple parties. Bugliosi explores five of the fathers of defeat in the Simpson case, and does a commendable job of making a fair assessment of the case. Other factors, of course, played their part, but Bugliosi's five loomed large in the fiasco… Mehr dazu

Don't let the lurid title put you off. This book is not a tabloid-style mishmash of misinformation. It is a sound, sane instructional manual that will teach you how to lift weights safely.
Most of the advice you get in the gym is worth exactly what you pay for it--nothing! Even when you pay for it, you oftentimes get garbage. I once had a personal trainer in a gym show me the "correct" way to benchpress. The result? Severe rotator cuff tendonitis. When I read this book, it explained exactly what was wrong with the personal trainer's advice and why I wound up injured.
Some folks think you make "progress" by toughing it out and working through… Mehr dazu
