To Christians, Jesus of Nazareth is the pivotal figure in human history. The entire Bible is about Him. Passages in the Old Testament forecast His life. In some Scriptures, references to Jesus are clear. In others, biblical writers relied on symbolism to foretell Jesus's time on earth.
In his book Decoding Bible Messages, author John A. Mapp Jr. shines a laser on the Old Testament. Mapp provides numerous examples to bring Jesus out of the symbolism used by Old Testament writers. Passages that, at first look, seemed to have nothing to do with Jesus take on new meaning. For example, Mapp explains how the manner in which the Passover lamb was slaughtered is a symbolic portrayal of Jesus's crucifixion. Through Mapp's research, you'll discover the Old Testament is truly a hologram of Jesus Christ.
Decoding Bible Messages provides a new perspective on the Old Testament. Learn to see Jesus on every page, and in the process, gain a new appreciation of the inspired nature of the whole Bible, plus a deeper revelation of the sovereign hand of God.
"Medical Coding Certification Exam Preparation" is designed to aid in the review for the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) exam. While not intended to be an introduction to medical coding, it provides an extensive review of the topics students need to know for the CPC exam, including coverage of anatomy, medical terminology, pathophysiology, as well as the concepts, guidelines and rules of medical coding. Based on their significant teaching experience and affiliations with AAPC, authors Cynthia Stewart and Cynthia Ward bring a fresh approach to preparing for the exam. The book is organized around the principle that students need the tools to understand how to break cases down and how to translate services, procedures, and diagnosis into codes. The importance of understanding and knowing how to locate and use the guidelines inherent to the ICD, CPT and HCPCS coding manuals is emphasized throughout the book with the use of Spotlights and Mentor Coding Tips. Each chapter contains questions similar to those found on the CPC exam. In addition, each of the five units of the book ends with a Unit Exam, meant to be a cumulative review. Finally, the book concludes with a comprehensive practice exam using ICD-9. (An ICD-10 exam is also available to help prepare students for the ICD-10 proficiency exam in development by AAPC.) Additional practice is available through Connect Plus, McGraw-Hill's online assignment and assessment tool.
