Excerpt from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 1 HE work which is now given to the public after years of diligent preparation is not a new T edition or revision of the International Cyclopedia. It is not based (ipon that or upon any other publication. The comparatively small portion of text which has been retained unaltered from the International Cyclopedia and incorporated in these volumes has been so retained because it has successfully stood the test of searching criticism, and because the Editors regard it as satisfying the most exacting requirements. This, however, is the full extent of the new Encyclopaedia's obligation to the Old. The present work has been planned and executed as a wholly independent and original undertaking. It represents the practical knowledge gained from an editorial experience of many years. It embodies the results derived from a critical study of all the most famous works of refer enee which have at any time appeared in Europe or in the United States.

Did God approve of Rahab’s lie? Why are many of the Old Testament quotes in the New Testament not literal? Does the Bible class abortion with murder? Where did Adam and Eve’s sons get their wives? Does 1 Corinthians 7:10–16 authorize divorce for desertion? What do you make of the difficult areas in the Bible—those puzzling passages that make you stop and scratch your head? The seeming contradictions and inconsistencies of Scripture actually have sound explanations. But unless you’re a Bible scholar, you probably don’t know about them. That’s why you need the New International Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties. It gives you informed answers to your most troublesome questions. Some of the solutions seem obvious—after you’ve read them. But most include an eye-opening look at linguistic, cultural, numerical, relational, and other considerations of which most Bible readers are unaware. Referencing both the New International Version and the New American Standard Bible, this helpful resource makes scholarly insights accessible to everyone. Whether you’re a student, pastor, everyday Bible-lover, or even a skeptic, the New International Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties will show you why the Bible is believable and dependable, with a message you can live by.

Excerpt from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 4 Another matter which has to be carefully pro vided for is a supply of water to the highest reach, or summit level, as it is usually called; the reason for this being that this reach is constantly losing its water to the reaches below, and this loss must be supplied by streams or reservoirs so located as to discharge into the summit level. Distances being equal. A canal which connects two points with a single reach is preferable to one with two reaches. Indeed, a considerable increase in length is allowable to permit the canal to be constructed without a change of level. The reason for this is that transferring a boat from one level to another by locks or the other usual means is a slow opera tion, and furthermore, locks are very expensive to construct compared with a similar length of the ordinary channel. The engineer carefully in tegrates these factors of time and cost and selects the route between the various points he wishes t0'connect which will give the minimum time of transit at the minimum cost. In deciding upon the cross-section to be given to the chan nel, two things have to be considered, viz. Its dimensions and its form. As regards dimen sions, they are determined largely by the size of the vessels with which it is proposed to navigate the canal. The width must be at least sufficient to permit two vessels of the largest size to pass each other without fouling. Another influencing factor is that the resistance to traction is greater in a restricted waterway. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The New International Encyclopedia, Vol. 10 Alaska, the seat of the most recent discoveries, gives promise of great future importance. With the exhaustion of the rich placers and beach de posits, such as were found at Cape Nome and in the interior districts, attention will be directed to quartz mining which affords a more permanent basis for the industry. It is noteworthy that the Territory was a producer of gold several years before the surface deposits were discovered.

This new Encyclopedia draws upon articles in The International Encyclopedia of Education, 2nd Edition (described by Choice as being "a premier resource when judged on virtually every criteria applied to a reference work") with revisions as well as new articles. It provides an understanding of where the economics of education has been, where it is heading, and where it needs to go in the future to provide further insights into the human role in production and the production of human skills valued in the labour market. The economics of education has both been expanded into new areas of research and has deepened and changed its analysis of traditional areas, such as educational finance, the production of knowledge, and the relation between education and economic growth. In the past decade theories have been modified and new concepts have appeared. The rapid change within the field convinced the publisher and the Editors-in-Chief of the need for a completely new edition of this valuable compilation. The volume is divided into eight sections: The economics of education, then and now, education and labour markets, the benefits of education, education economic growth and technological change, education, income distribution and discrimination, the production of education, evaluating educational investment, and financing education. Each of the sections has its own introduction.
