What does the Bible say about this topic? While no conclusion or consensus has been reached on the topic there are two view points and positions which have arisen to the forefront of the debate. First we have the egalitarian view which holds the position that ministerial opportunities should be equal for both men and women. Then we have the complementarian view which presents the belief that ministerial roles should be differentiated by gender. James Beck’s book TwoViews on Women in Ministry explores both of these positions by examining four articles, two of each opposing viewpoints along with three critical responses to each article. The goal of the text is to compare and contrast both positions...

...and American and to me radiant and beautiful and adult") sharpened for him, Naipaul noting, "I had bought the pad and pencil because I was travelling to become a writer, and I had to start."[23] The copious notes and letters from that time were to become the basis for the chapter "Journey" in The Enigma of Arrival.[23] Arriving at Oxford for the Michaelmas term, 1950, Naipaul felt he was sufficiently prepared academically;[24] in the judgment of his Latin tutor, Peter Bayley, Naipaul showed promise and poise.[25][26] But, a year on, by his reckoning, his attempts at writing felt contrived. Unsure of his ability and his calling, and lonely besides, Naipaul fell into a slump. His family in Trinidad began to worry, and by late March 1952, plans were afoot for a return home in the summer. His father put down a quarter of the passage. But the return that summer never came to pass. In early April, in the vacs before the Trinity term, Naipaul took an impulsive trip to Spain, and quickly and grandly spent all he had saved. Attempting an explanation to his family, he called it "a nervous breakdown."[27] Thirty years later, he was to call it "something like a mental illness."[28] Meanwhile, earlier that year, at a college play, Naipaul had met Patricia Ann Hale, a young woman his age, who was studying history. Hale and Naipaul soon became intimate. With her support, Naipaul began to recover and slowly again to write. In turn, she became a partner in dreaming up his career. When......

...attacked and conquered Kalinga (present day Orissa). Although he had conquered many other places, this violent war was the last war he ever fought and a turning point of his career. He was disgusted by the extreme deaths of numerous civilians, especially the Brahmans. All these misfortunes brought Ashoka to turn into a religious ruler compared to a military ruler. As he turned to Buddhism, he emphasized dharma (law of piety) and ahimsa (nonviolence). He realized he could not spread Buddhism all by himself and therefore appointed officers to help promote the teachings. These officers were called Dhamma Mahamattas or "Officers of Righteousness"" They were in charge of providing welfare and happiness among the servants and masters. Preventing wrongful doings and ensuring special consideration was also their duty. Emphasizing his role as king, he paid close attention to welfare, the building of roads and rest houses, planting medicinal trees, and setting up healing centers. In order to pursue ahimsa, Ashoka gave up his favorite hobby of hunting and forbade the killing of animals, spreading vegetarianism throughout India....

...Case 11-3 Master of the Universe Saturn Inc. (Saturn) and Venus Inc. (Venus), two unrelated parties, form Jupiter, a joint venture. Saturn owns 51 percent of Jupiter and Venus owns 49 percent of Jupiter. The purpose of Jupiter is to own and operate organic clothing design and manufacturing facilities and sell organic clothing to unrelated retailers. When Jupiter was formed, Saturn contributed $561 million to Jupiter and Venus contributed four manufacturing facilities with an assembled workforce, with a total fair value of $539 million to Jupiter. Venus was looking to exit its clothing manufacturing business, as this business no longer was a strategic fit for Venus. However, Saturn was looking to expand its footprint in the manufacturing of children’s clothing. In exchange for their contributions, Saturn and Venus received a combination of equity and debt securities for Jupiter (in proportion to their overall contributions). The Articles of Incorporation of Jupiter state the following in terms of governance and management of Jupiter: The Board of Jupiter (the “Board”) comprises eight individuals, four each appointed by Saturn and Venus. Both Saturn and Venus are able to nominate individuals for the position of CEO of Jupiter (the “CEO”). The CEO is responsible for the day-to-day operations of Jupiter. Most Board actions are passed by a simple majority vote; however, the following actions cannot be taken without unanimous approval of the Board: o Appointment and removal of the......
