Pro Java 6 3D game development Java 3D, JOGL, JInput, and JOAL APIs by Andrew Davison( )
17 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Create strange lands filled with mysterious objects (cows frozen in blocks of ice, chirping penguins, golden globes with wavering eyes) and throw away your keyboard and mouse, to go exploring armed only with a gamepad, power glove, or just your bare hands ... Java gaming expert Andrew Davison will show you how to develop and program 3D games in Java technology on a PC, with an emphasis on the construction of 3D landscapes. It's assumed you have a reasonable knowledge of Java - the sort of thing picked up in a first Java course at school. Topics are split into three sections: Java 3D API, non-standard input devices for game playing, and JOGL. Java 3D is a high-level 3D graphics API, and JOGL is a lower-level Java wrapper around the popular OpenGL graphics API. Youll look at three non-standard input devices: the webcam, the game pad, and the P5 data glove. Along the way, youll utilize several other games-related libraries including: JInput, JOAL, JMF, and Odejava. Learn all the latest Java SE 6 features relevant to gaming, including: splash screens, JavaScript scripting as well as the desktop and system tray interfaces. Unique coverage of Java game development using both the Java 3D API and Java for OpenGL, as well as invaluable experience from a recognized Java gaming guru, will provide you with a distinct advantage after reading this book." - publishers description

Border thinking on the edges of the West : crossing over the Hellespont by Andrew Davison( )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on scholarly and life experience on, and over, the historically posited borders between ""West"" and ""East,"" the work identifies, interrogates, and challenges a particular, enduring, violent inheritance - what it means to cross over a border - from the classical origins of Western political thought. The study has two parts. The first is an effort to work within the Western tradition to demonstrate its foundational and enduring, violent conception of crossing over borders. The second is a creative effort to explore and encourage a fundamentally different outlook towards borders and wh

Grace : the free, unconditional and limitless love of God by Peter Groves( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Grace - the free, unconditional and limitless love of God - is one of the epic words of the Christian faith and a key part of what is most distinctive about it. It lies at the heart of what is proclaimed in the Gospel, but is not well understood, even by Christians. For centuries, Christians have laboured under two opposing misunderstandings: the Catholic view: We must strive to be good in order to deserve God's love and the Protestant view: Humankind is so sinful, we can do no good at all. To set a great imbalance right, this volume explores what grace is; how it flows from an understanding of the Trinity; how it becomes visible in the life of Christ; grace in creation, human freedom and the Church; ways of thinking about grace and living the life of grace. -- Publisher

The love of wisdom : an introduction to philosophy for theologians by Andrew Davison( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Love of Wisdom offers a comprehensive introduction to Western intellectual history and philosophy for all studying Christian theology. The history of Christian theology is interwoven with the wider history of Western thought. A good understanding of what a particular theologian wrote requires some appreciation of the intellectual climate in which he or she was writing, including the philosophical currency of the time, and particularly the meaning of the philosophical terminology deployed. This book will put a basic appreciation of the intellectual history of Europe over the past 2,500 years within the grasp of theology students. This book will help students studying theology to be better theologians. It will also be of use in thinking about Christian apologetics, since quite a few of the topics under discussion in this field are basically philosophical. The same could be said for topics in science and religion . The book will help the student of philosophical theology or philosophy of religion see how philosophical thinking within theology is paralleled by interest in theological subjects within philosophy. Finally, it will help students acquire a sense of the historical trajectory of theology by placing it alongside the parallel history of philosophy
