Book Description

Although the number of commercial Java games is still small compared to those written in C or C++, the market is expanding rapidly. Recent updates to Java make it faster and easier to create powerful gaming applications-particularly Java 3D-is fueling an explosive growth in Java games. Java games like Puzzle Pirates, Chrome, Star Wars Galaxies, Runescape, Alien Flux, Kingdom of Wars, Law and Order II, Roboforge, Tom Clancy's Politika, and scores of others have earned awards and become bestsellers. Java developers new to graphics and game programming, as well as game developers new to Java 3D, will find Killer Game Programming in Java invaluable. This new book is a practical introduction to the latest Java graphics and game programming technologies and techniques. It is the first book to thoroughly cover Java's 3D capabilities for all types of graphics and game development projects. Killer Game Programming in Java is a comprehensive guide to everything you need to know to program cool, testosterone-drenched Java games. It will give you reusable techniques to create everything from fast, full-screen action games to multiplayer 3D games. In addition to the most thorough coverage of Java 3D available, Killer Game Programming in Java also clearly details the older, better-known 2D APIs, 3D sprites, animated 3D sprites, first-person shooter programming, sound, fractals, and networked games. Killer Game Programming in Java is a must-have for anyone who wants to create adrenaline-fueled games in Java.

Amazing Love by Andrew Davison Amazing Love, Paperback (June 2016)

Amazing Love is perhaps the definitive book to date presenting a positive theology of same-sex relationships, produced as a commission for the LGBTI Mission, a collaboration of all the major pro-same-sex Christian groups and supported by Stonewall.

Blessing by Andrew Davison Blessing, Paperback (November 2014)

Blessing is one of the most used but least understood of Christian terms. We want to be blessed, and to be a blessing, but do not think a great deal about what that implies. This engaging introduction unpacks the rich, many-layered concept of blessing from a variety of angles, looking at the place of blessing in theology and daily life.

Care for the Dying by Andrew Davison Care for the Dying, Paperback (January 2014)

Combining insights from palliative care, pastoral experience and theological reflection, it will increase the courage and confidence of anyone fearful of what to do or say in such circumstances.
