Jill stepped into the nightclub ready to relieve the stress shed collected after a busy day. A couple of handsome men caught her eye and activated her sexual imagination. It had, after all, been over a year since shed had a relationship with a man. She wondered what some of those good-looking guys could do to her and for a split second her imagination drifted to someplace dangerous. But in the end those naughty thoughts were interrupted by her friend, Mina, waving her over to a booth in the rear. With her olive-skin and long black hair, she would have been hard to miss.

Life in Bangkok for young people is marked by profound, interlocking changes and transitions. This book offers an ethnographic account of growing up in the city´s slums, struggling to get by in a rapidly developing and globalizing economy and trying to fulfil one´s dreams. At the same time, it reflects on the issue of agency, exploring its negative potential when exercised by young people living under severe structural constraint. It offers an antidote to neoliberal ideas around personal responsibility, and the assumed potential for individuals to break through structures of constraint in any sustained way.

Are you getting the spiritual nourishment you need? We have all experienced times when we have not eaten a balanced diet or have eaten too many sweets. We feel sick, light-headed, and occasionally depressed, or we become irritable and edgy. It´s the body´s way of letting us know that it´s lacking sufficient nourishment. Optimal health requires optimal nutrition. The same is true spiritually speaking. Without sufficient and regular biblical nutrition, our inner life begins to suffer the consequences. We become shallow and selfish, more demanding and less gentle, and quick to react impatiently, rashly, and angrily. These are telltale signs of inner malnutrition. In Searching the Scriptures, respected Bible teacher Charles Swindoll shows us how to dig deep into Scripture and uncover its profound truths for our lives. He outlines the principles of Bible study that will help you understand God´s word, apply it, and communicate it clearly to those around you. Too many people try to go it alone, without a guide for this life and the next. Swindoll explains how we can fix our own spiritual meals and then invites us to feast on nourishing truths we can discover in God´s word. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Denison.

Still Searching for Pipe Dreams is the second in a series following Rick Newcombe´s first book, the best-selling In Search of Pipe Dreams. Why would anyone still smoke a pipe in the 21st century when all forms of smoking are being banned around the world? Why are so many young people drawn to pipe collecting and artistic pipemaking with such intensity and passion? And why are pipe shows suddenly sold out, with waiting lists for tables? These young pipe enthusiasts are from America, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, Italy, Denmark and all over the world. Unlike mass-marketed cigarettes, pipe smoking has a rich tradition that goes back many centuries, and the author predicts it is the only form of smoking that will last many centuries into the future. He contends that moderate pipe smoking, without inhaling, promotes relaxation and clear thinking, and it serves as an ideal antidote to stress that is much safer than the tranquilizers that are so freely dispensed today. Unlike cigar and cigarette smokers, pipe collectors actually save their pipes. They clean and polish them and put them in racks or display cabinets. If they are broken, they have them repaired. Most pipe smokers remember when they bought each pipe in their collection, and every time they take a pipe out, it is a reminder of the past, to be enjoyed in the present, for many years into the future. This book also is inspiring because of Rick Newcombe´s enthusiasm and optimism, which shine through in every chapter and make it a fast-paced and enjoyable listen. 1. Language: English.

Based on the true story of Nobel Prize-winner Dr Daniel Carleton Gajdusek, this debut novel asks searching questions of the human condition. Does a hard-to-find turtle hold the secret of long life? Now in paperback.
How does a certain place influence the self? Could one argue that Pauls territoriality and mission strategies are Jerusalem-centered? Does the letter to the Romans, as an insight into Pauls mission strategy, reveal the apostles central territorial paradigm and offer explanations for the creation of Pauls theology as it affects his mission? In dealing with these questions, Ksenija Magda analyzes if and how spatial theories developed by the geographer Robert D. Sack can be utilized for the clarification of long-standing questions in Pauline theology, for example his motivation to evangelize the Gentiles, the center of Pauls theology, the relationship to his own people and the origin of his doctrines on justification. In doing so, the author also shows how conflicting issues can be resolved.
