Promises You Can Stand On Through Thick and Thin The Bible is filled with hundreds of what the apostle Peter called "exceeding great and precious promises": definite, explicit declarations God has made that you can count on. In All the Promises of the Bible, Dr. Herbert Lockyer discusses the nature of God’s promises - their substance, simplicity, surety, source, security, scope. Lockyer’s in-depth look at the scope of God’s promises arranges them in categories that cover the full array of human concerns, from the spiritual to the material and the corporate to the personal. As you come to understand God’s promises and how they apply to every aspect of your life, you’ll gain a trust in God that will sustain you through the worst of times and be your source of rejoicing in the best.

“Nearly forty years after I first got involved, I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling. That’s why I wanted to be a part of it.” –Joe Biden As a United States senator from Delaware since 1973, Joe Biden has been an intimate witness to the major events of the past four decades and a relentless actor in trying to shape recent American history. He has seen up close the tragic mistake of the Vietnam War, the Watergate and Iran-contra scandals, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the reunification of Germany, the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, a presidential impeachment, a presidential resignation, and a presidential election decided by the Supreme Court. He’s observed Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and two Bushes wrestling with the presidency; he’s traveled to war zones in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa and seen firsthand the devastation of genocide. He played a vital role by standing up to Ronald Reagan’s effort to seat Judge Robert Bork on the Supreme Court, fighting for legislation that protects women against domestic violence, and galvanizing America’s response (and the world’s) to Slobodan Milosevic’s genocidal march in the Balkans. In Promises to Keep, Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming a demoralizing stutter; marriage, fatherhood, and the tragic death of his wife Neilia and infant daughter Naomi; remarriage and re-forming a family with his second wife, Jill; success and failure in the Senate and on the campaign trail; two life-threatening aneurysms; his relations with fellow lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life–the obligation to work to make people’s lives better, to honor family and faith, to get up and do the right thing no matter how hard you’ve been knocked down, to be honest and straightforward, and, above all, to keep your promises–are the foundations on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is the story of a man who faced down personal challenges and tragedy to become one of our most effective leaders. It is also an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who refuses to be cynical about political leadership, and a testament to the promise of the United States.

Die Gedichte Robert Frosts (1874–1963) gehören nicht nur zum festen Bestand amerikanischer Lyrik der Moderne, sie haben ihren Platz in der Weltliteratur gefunden. Der vorliegende Band macht den deutschen Lesern die bekanntesten, die kanonisch gewordenen Gedichte von Robert Frost zugänglich wie "Rast am Wald an einem verschneiten Tag" oder "Der nicht genommene Weg". Frost hat sich um einen natürlichen, organischen Sprachfluss bemüht und sich zugleich stets dem freien Vers widersetzt, die Gedichte suchen die Nähe zur gesprochenen Sprache und halten doch an der Besonderheit dichterischer Sprache fest. Die Natur, die äußere und die innere des Menschen, hat Frost fasziniert, der als Farmer gleichzeitig einen unsentimentalen Blick auf sie hatte. Aber auch die menschliche Natur zeigt sich in allen ihren Feinheiten und Brüchen, so Frost, besonders dem Dichter. So ist seine Lyrik in ihrer klassischen Schönheit auch eine Begegnung mit uns selbst.

Over a span of five years, [the authors] talked in-depth with 162 low-income single moms ... to learn how they think about marriage and family. [This book] offers an intimate look at what marriage and motherhood mean to these women and provides [an] extensive on-the-ground study ... of why they put children before marriage despite the daunting challenges they know lie ahead.. [This book] argues that until poor young women and men have greater access to jobs that lead to financial security - that is, until they can hope for a rewarding life outside of bearing and raising children - they will continue to have children far sooner than most Americans think they should, and in less than ideal circumstances.--

The past quarter century has seen the Australian community and its governments commit to a full and equal citizenship for disabled people. Has the promise been fulfilled? How effective have these changes been? Mike Clear focuses on NSW to find answers and engage their meanings personally and socially. He brings together research, analysis and the insights of disabled writers in a detailed and critical study, structured around three Parts: personal dialogues that provide sensitive insights into personal experiences and the nature of a disabling society; chapters describing and critically appraising the policy and legislative landscape; and four critical perspectives on key relevant social issues: access, telecommunications, cultural representation and the politics of care. He finds there have been important gains, based largely on human rights initiatives and the efforts and skill of disabled people themselves. However, the inclusion of disabled people is carefully managed by governments. It is 'turned on' and 'turned off' as ideology and policy priorities dictate. Do these gains reflect a promise kept? Not while the systemic alienation of people who have impairment and often, if less directly, of their associates continues. And not, as this book reveals, whilst Australian economic, social and cultural systems remain so fundamentally unchanged.

During the past fifteen years, changes in technology have generated an extraordinary array of new ways in which music and movies can be produced and distributed. Both the creators and the consumers of entertainment products stand to benefit enormously from the new systems. Sadly, we have failed thus far to avail ourselves of these opportunities. Instead, much energy has been devoted to interpreting or changing legal rules in hopes of defending older business models against the threats posed by the new technologies. These efforts to plug the multiplying holes in the legal dikes are failing and the entertainment industry has fallen into crisis. This provocative book chronicles how we got into this mess and presents three alternative proposals--each involving a combination of legal reforms and new business models--for how we could get out of it.

Having identified the literary origins of the Faustus legend in the late sixteenth-century German Faust Book and its English translation, this book argues that the Faustus typology emerged as a vehicle for discussing morality and beliefs. This study examines a broad spectrum of transformations of the thematic core of the legend, concentrating on Marlowe's play, Milton's and Fontenelle's responses to seventeenth-century science, Mountfort's farcical Faustus play and early eighteenth-century harlequinades.
