A structural analysis of Deuteronomy 14 : 1-21 indicates a well planned composition. A comparison with the same set of dietary regulations in Leviticus 11 : 2-20 indicates a process of literary growth in the Deuteronomy composition. An original list of land animals was extended into a literary unit on dietary regulations. A technique of <i>inclusio</i> was used in different literary layers to form this unit and to include it in the Deuteronomic Code and eventually in the Pentateuch. Different theories on Pentateuchal growth are considered so as to understand the ethical meaning of these dietary regulations within this larger literary framework.

This article investigates a recent attempt to apply philosophy within the discipline of psychotherapy and to investigate the somewhat undefined realm of philosophical counselling. After introducing the claims of this interdisciplinary exercise and after addressing the problems involved in crossing the boundaries between philosophy and psychotherapy, the article elaborates on Alex Howard's (2000) [<i>Philosophy for counselling and psychotherapy: Pythagoras to post-modernism</i>. London : Macmillan] attempt to make explicit use of philosophy in psychotherapy, using his interpretation and application of Heraclitus' philosophy as case study.

Do the parables of Luke hold the key to an understanding of the overall purpose of Luke's Gospel? This question is pursued by Greg W Forbes (2000) in a book entitled <i>The God of Old : The role of the Lukan parables in the purpose of Luke's Gospel</i>. Although the Lukan parables address a variety of subjects of a diverse nature, there is one unifying factor that runs like a golden thread through all the parables : a new vision of God. This vision seems new in-so-far as it presents a challenge to conventional Israelite perceptions regarding God at the time when the parables were written, but in fact, it is not new at all. It is a vision of the God of Old as witnessed in the Hebrew Scriptures. This article presents an overview of Forbes' book.

Extracted from text ... Kirk, J A 2000 - What is mission? Theological explorations Minneapolis: Fortress Press. 302 pages. Price unknown.
