This latest contribution to the understanding of the Bible’s final book will be a welcomed addition to anyone’s personal library. The author is quick to admit that Revelation has many strange images and perplexing elements. However, he is just as quick to stress that these images and elements are not the focus. The Apostle John, in writing this apocalyptic volume, centers the attention on Jesus Christ, the only hope for those who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, as well as those who still need to. Many people know Revelation for its striking, confusing symbolism. Many of these people would experience less confusion if they realized that most of these symbols are borrowed by the beloved disciple from other parts of the Bible. Manzano is faithful and responsible in allowing the Bible to interpret itself and establishing the Old Testament, especially the book of Daniel, as the foundation for decoding Revelation’s “mysteries.” As Bible prophecy continues to unfold, and this world continues to unravel like a cheap sweater, the frustration and turmoil that ensues will dissipate by the encouraging tone of this book. Readers are subsequently prompted to dive into Revelation and study afresh to reconnect with the Lamb/King around whom its messages revolve.
Nationalparks und andere Großschutzgebiete sind ein wichtiger Bestandteil von Naturschutzstrategien. Obgleich sich diese Schutzgebiete allgemeiner Beliebtheit in der Bevölkerung erfreuen, stoßen sie bei den Menschen vor Ort nicht immer auf Akzeptanz. Befürchtete Verhaltenseinschränkungen oder ein Misstrauen gegenüber den Akteuren des Naturschutzes können Ursachen hierfür sein. Anhand von zwei unterschiedlich angelegten Fallstudien in den Nationalparks Harz und Yosemite (USA) ergründet Eick von Ruschkowski in seiner Studie sowohl Ursachen von Akzeptanzproblemen als auch mögliche Lösungsansätze dafür.

The Art of Editing in the Age of Convergence remains the most comprehensive and widely used text on editing in journalism. This latest edition continues to shift the focus toward online multimedia as more and more people get their news that way. Amid these changes, the authors continue to stress the importance of taking the best techniques learned in print and broadcast editing and applying them to online journalism. The reality is that most people now often first learn of breaking news on Facebook or Twitter, and therefore the challenge for journalists in this new media world is distinguishing the quality and dependability of their work from all the fake news and propaganda memes, now so common online. This book is designed to help serious news providers produce a product that is well-edited and grounded in the best practices of journalism.
Is English changing? To what degree is it changing? Is this change good or bad? In answering these questions, Is English Changing? provides a lively and concise introduction to language change, refuting commonly held misconceptions about language evolution as we understand it. Showing that English, like all living languages, has historically changed and continues to change, this book: analyzes developments in the lexicon, the way words are spoken or written, and the way in which speakers and writers use words; offers a basic overview of the major subfields of linguistics, including phonetics, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics, all viewed through the prism of language change; discusses change over time with examples from Old English, Middle English, and Modern English; reinforces important concepts with examples from other languages, including Spanish, Japanese, and Czech; clearly defines key terms and includes advice on rules, usage, and style, as well as ample annotated further reading and activities throughout. Aimed at undergraduate students with little or no prior knowledge of linguistics, this book is essential reading for those studying this topic for the first time.
Ein alter Feind, ein neues Bündnis – doch niemand vertraut dem anderen. Fitz Weitseher hat Prinz Pflichtgetreu befreit und ist mit ihm nach Bocksburg zurückgekehrt. Nun steht der Heirat des Prinzen mit Prinzessin Elliania von den Roten Korsaren scheinbar nichts mehr im Weg. Doch die Anspannung im Volk der Sechs Provinzen und der Widerstand der Adligen wächst stetig, und selbst Bocksburg ist nicht mehr sicher. Widerstrebend willigt Fitz ein, den Prinzen zu beschützen und ihn in der Gabe zu unterrichten. Da trifft er auf einen Anwender dieser magischen Fähigkeit, der sie weit effektiver als er selbst einzusetzen vermag; von dem niemand wusste – und der Haus Weitseher zu Grunde richten könnte ... Dieses Buch ist bereits unter dem Titel »Der goldene Narr« im Bastei-Lübbe Verlag erschienen.
