ggf. zzgl. Versand

This audiobook is the first book in the new academic book series, Hermit Kingdom Studies in Christianity and Judaism, which seeks to encourage advancement of knowledge in the area of Hebrew language studies, Jewish historical studies, and Early Christianity/New Testament studies. The academic series particularly encourages the use of interdisciplinary approaches and creative thinking. Hebrew, Jewish, and Early Christian Studies: Academic Essays by Heerak Christian Kim contains six academic papers. The academic papers represent fruits of academic research conducted in a period of 10 years in three countries in three continents: Israel, United States, and United Kingdom. The research was conducted under the auspices of some of the world most prestigious fellowships, such as the Lady Davis Fellowship and the Raoul Wallenberg Scholarship. Heerak Christian Kim researched with some of the world's greatest minds - at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Cambridge University, and America's Ivy League universities. Some of the papers in the collection were delivered before an academic audience in important academic conferences (Society of Biblical Literature, British New Testament Conference, and American Schools of Oriental Research) and represent cutting-edge research in the respective field. The essays show erudition. But more importantly, some of the creative ideas contained in the audiobook represent potentially a strong force of change in methodology and academic consensus in the area of Hebrew, Jewish, and Early Christian studies. This audiobook is aimed at specialists in the field and can be used as a text book for college courses in the area of Hebrew, Jewish, and Early Christian studies. This audiobook would be beneficial and helpful for clergy and informed laity who want a more serious study of the Bible, Christianity, and Judaism. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Mumm.

Lady Chatterley's Lover , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Set in the relentlessly grey-skied, grey-walled world of a Midlands coal mining village just after the First World War, this tells the story of the love that developed between Lady Chatterley and Oliver Mellors, her husband's gamekeeper. The full text was not published in the United Kingdom until 1960, more than 30 years after it had been written, because of its explicit content and use of prohibited words. And yet, one cannot help wondering whether without its excoriating and often still accurate depiction of the British upper classes, the book might have been less harshly received.  Furthermore, Lawrence defied the tide of the times by illustrating the universally dehumanising effects of industrialisation, which was already swiftly turning most aspects of human interaction and emotion into commercial commodities such as the fun, fun, fun to be had simply because one had paid for an outing or holiday.  Lady Chatterley's Lover explores social forces that are deeply entrenched to this day. But above all, it is a warm and meaningful contemplation of love and its sexual expression that reminds us that more than money, status and social approval, shared tenderness is the key to human happiness.  Original artwork by Magda Allani. 1.

Maria of Agreda: Mystical Lady in Blue , Hörbuc...

Stories of Maria of Agreda's exceptional attributes spread from her cloistered convent in seventeenth-century Agreda, Spain, to the court in Madrid, and beyond. Without leaving her village, the abbess impacted the kingdom, her church, and the New World. Based upon her transcendent visionary experiences, Sor Maria chronicled the life of Mary, mother of Jesus of Nazareth, in the Mystical City of God. This work was temporarily condemned during the Spanish Inquisition.In America, reports emerged that she had miraculously appeared to Jumano Native Americans - a feat corroborated by witnesses in Spain, Texas, and New Mexico, where she is known as the legendary "Lady in Blue." Today, Sor Maria is lauded in Spain as one of the most influential women in its history, and in the United States as an inspiring pioneer. Fedewa's biography of this spirited abbess integrates voluminous autobiographical, historical, and literary sources published by and about Maria of Agreda. 1. Language: English.

Lady Chatterley's Lover, written in 1928, tells the story of a passionate love affair between an upper class woman and her husband’s gamekeeper, which was thought to be so shocking in its content and its straightforward use of explicit sexual terms, that it was not officially published until 1960. Its 1961 second edition contained this dedication from the publisher: "For having published this book, Penguin Books were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act, 1959 at the Old Bailey in London from 20 October to 2 November 1960. This edition is therefore dedicated to the twelve jurors, three women and nine men, who returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty' and thus made D. H. Lawrence's last novel available for the first time to the public in the United Kingdom." Now firmly established as a classic of English literature that was written well before its time, what saved it from being banned for ever was its literary merit, upheld by some of the most distinguished writers and critics of the time. Lawrence’s prescient musings on the changes in society and his authentic depiction of two unhappily married people, finding in this most unlikely and potentially doomed coupling the physical and emotional balance that they both crave, are as relevant today as they were then.

British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Margare...

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' British Legends series, listeners can get caught up to speed on the lives of Great Britain's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. Sir Winston Churchill is often cited as Britain's greatest prime minister for leading the United Kingdom against Hitler's Nazi war machine during World War II, and indeed he was the idol of the one person who many think might have surpassed him: Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher not only became Britain's first female prime minister; she also became its longest serving prime minister. The political precedents Thatcher set as a woman would be enough of a legacy in their own right, but Thatcher effectively wielded her power in a way that made a lasting contribution to both geopolitics and the perception of female politicians in general. Thatcher is widely credited, along with Ronald Reagan, as one of the principal Cold Warriors who brought about the demise of the Soviet Union, whose leaders gave her the famous nickname "Iron Lady". And, of course, Thatcher was recently in the spotlight again with the release of the critically acclaimed movie The Iron Lady, starring Meryl Streep. With the success of that movie, Thatcher has undergone a cultural revival and reiconization in many quarters for her political stances and political achievements. At the same time, however, the role she played as a woman is now often overlooked out of the expedience of political correctness, and it is considered uncivil to analyze Thatcher's political rise through the prism of sex. In fact at times the former prime minister claimed to understand an issue better due to her sex and sometimes used her sex more subliminally. British Legends: The Life and Legacy of Margaret 1.

This Haunted Isle: The Ghosts and Legends of Br...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Peter Underwood has personally visited the historic buildings and sites of Britain, and here presents a wealth of intriguing legends and new stories of ghostly encounters from more than a hundred such throughout the United Kingdom. From Abbey House in Cambridge to Zennor in Cornwall, this is an A to Z of the haunted houses of Britain. At Bramshill in Hampshire - now a police training college - there have been so many sightings that even sceptical police officers have had to admit that the place is haunted.Beautiful Leeds Castle in Kent has a large, phantom black dog; there is an Elizabethan gentleman (seen by a Canon of the Church of England!) at Croft Castle; a Pink Lady at Coughton Court; a prancing ghost jester at Gawsworth; a spectre in green velvet at Hoghton Tower; six ghosts at East Riddlesden Hall; a headless apparition at Westwood Manor; and then there are some little-known ghosts in Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace and the Tower of London, and the strange ghosts of Chingle Hall, perhaps the most haunted house in England. These are just a few of the extraordinary stories the author has gathered in his researches around the country, in the course of travels that took him from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, through Northumberland and Yorkshire, to East Anglia, Devon and Cornwall.Many first-hand accounts are presented here for the first time in a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of Britain's haunted historic properties and scenes; a paranormal guide with a difference, that will bring a new and absorbing interest to visitors to these great houses that are our national heritage. Perhaps you will be one of the fortunate (or unfortunate!) visitors who encounters a ghost as you wander through these wonderful houses, castles and mansions, where the atmosphere takes us back in time....PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.  1.

Friends and Enemies (eBook, ePUB)

'Friends and Enemies is an extraordinary read showing unflinching candour from a truly remarkable woman' Elton John 'Blistering . . . shockingly candid . . . stiletto-sharp memoir of the year' Daily Mail'Magnetic and magnificent . . . Amiel is superb, furious and, best of all, funny. Say what you like about her - and many have - but the Black Lady can write' The TimesBarbara Amiel's long-awaited memoir is shockingly honest, richly detailed and pulls few punches. An instinctive feminist and now a foe of feminism's political correctness, her own memoirs cover a formidable array of experiences - political, sexual, marital and material. Born in London during the Blitz, the only consistent strain in her early life was a fierce belief in her identity as a Jew even as the Jewish community disowned her and an unquestioned view that women were free to do anything in any arena they chose without any need to win society's approval. Which she very often did not.Her rise to the senior rungs of journalism began in Canada after the emigration of her family and continued in the United Kingdom on her return. With four marriages and an assorted number of beaus, some famous, some infamous (some rather young, some rather elderly), she moved through different worlds encountering problems made more intractable on occasion by her own faulty choices. It is a measure of her writing skill that she held down plum jobs for many decades in Canadian and British journalism as well as appearances in U.S. publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal to Vogue.As a writer of unabashedly libertarian views, she was derided as much for her wardrobe as for her ideas. Pilloried for years in books and television and called every conceivable name by the media, she is philosophical. 'I love fashion, sex and opera,' she once told an interviewer, 'but life would have been easier if my passions had been for train-spotting and stamp collecting.'Her life has an operatic quality with a wildly diverse cast including Elton John, Henry Kissinger, Anna Wintour, Oscar de la Renta, Princess Diana, Tom Stoppard, Brooke Astor, Ghislaine Maxwell, Ronald Harwood, David Frost and an array of the aristocrats of Manhattan and the stately homes of England. All handled, she writes 'with my fatal combination of naivete and self-absorption'. The epic battle with the U.S. justice system leading to the trial and imprisonment of her husband Conrad Black (eventually substantially vindicated) became a litmus paper for sorting out friends from those who were quick to judge and brutal in their dismissal.Friends and Enemies is not a book of vengeance but an attempt to find her own truth: a life that reads like a novel, eloquent, surprising, written with deeply personal candour and utterly un-put-downable.'This is undoubtedly the autobiography of the decade. Barbara Amiel's searing - and sometimes brutal - honesty, both about herself and others, leaves the reader staggered . . . No-one expected a discreet memoir from Barbara Amiel, but few could possibly have imagined that it would be quite this powerfully, dangerously, profoundly self-revelatory' Andrew Roberts
