Challenging Concepts in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery details over 25 challenging and complex scenarios matched to the OMFS syllabus including frontal sinus fractures, reconstructive challenges following blast injuries to the facial soft tissue and skeleton, and reratocystic odontogenic tumours.This case-based learning book is designed to be used by trainees and speciality registrars. Each case is supported by the commentary of a renowned expert in the field, allowing readers to improve their own management of these patients. As the reader works through each case there are 'Clinical Tips', 'Learning Points' and 'Evidence Base' boxes to enhance the learning process along with the 'Expert Commentary', providing an inside track on how the experts approach challenging cases.The range of topics discussed including three complex battlefield cases will be essential reading for trainees in oral and maxillofacial surgery and related specialties, such as otolaryngology, oral surgery, orthodontics, and dentistry.Existing books on Christian ritual and the sacraments tend to presuppose a good acquaintance with Roman Catholic thought and practice. Today, however, even at Catholic institutions students tend to lack even a basic knowledge of Christian ritual. Moreover, for many modern people the word "ritual" carries negative connotations of rigidity and boredom. In this accessibly-written book two noted authors offer an engaging introduction to this important topic. Their goalis first to demonstrate that celebration, ritual and symbol are already central to the readers' lives, even though most do not see their actions as symbolic or ritualistic. Once this point has been made, the book connects central Christian symbols to the symbols and rituals already present in thereaders' lives. The Christian theology of symbol, ritual, and sacrament is thus placed in the context of everyday life. The authors go on to discuss such questions as how rituals establish and maintain power relationships, how "official" rituals are different from other "popular" Christian rituals and devotions, and how Christian rituals function in the process of human "salvation." Their lively yet solidly grounded work will appeal to intelligent lay readers and discussion groups, as well asbeing useful for courses in ritual and the sacraments at the undergraduate and seminary level.
