New Xulon Book Revives Bible Text, Sheds Light on Redemption Plan

Perez-Peña conveys a clear connection between the Old and New Testaments

MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A general misconception is that the Old Testament, where the Mosaic Law is found, exists mainly for its moralizing lessons. Within the pages of J. Arturo Perez-Peña's new book, Síntesis del Antiguo Testamento: Una Mirada al Antiguo Pacto con los ojos puestos en Jesús ($33.99, paperback, 9781628712650; $9.99, e-book, 9781628712667), which translates to "An Introduction to the Old Testament: An overview of the Old Covenant fixing our eyes on Jesus," the author emphasizes God's plan to redeem mankind through Jesus Christ. Furthermore, this book allows readers to see that every word in the Old Testament actually points to the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ.

"We don't have any survey on the Old Testament book written in Spanish explaining the true meaning of the story of God's redemption in the person of Jesus," states the author. "Instead, what we have is a lot of books on the Old Testament stories bringing a 'moralizing teaching' instead of fixing our eyes to Jesus, 'the founder and perfecter of our faith.'"

J. Arturo Perez-Peña has a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and has been working in the I.T. industry for more than twenty years in companies such as IBM and Microsoft. The author has been a Christian since his youth for more than thirty years, and has received formal training in systematic theology, apologetics, counseling, philosophy and more. He has held the position of Bible teacher on two separate occasions. Currently, he is an elder at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Laduerdale, Florida, and he continues exercising his gifts by serving Hispanic ministries in South Florida through his preaching and teaching. The author has published two books with Xulon Press: Síntesis del Antiguo Testamento and Síntesis del Nuevo Testamento.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world's largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 8,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Síntesis del Antiguo Testamento: Una Mirada al Antiguo Pacto con los ojos puestos en Jesús through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance?

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
