Download Churches In The Face Of Political And Social Transition Kirchen Und Der Politisch Gesellschaftliche Wandel books, Im Mittelpunkt der Monographie steht eine Reihe von zwischenkirchlichen Konsultationen, die sogenannten Serbien-Tagungen, die unter Beteiligung der Evangelischen Kirche in Deutschland, der Deutschen Bischofskonferenz und der Serbischen Orthodoxen Kirche von 1999 bis 2009 stattfanden. Ziel der evangelisch-katholisch-orthodoxen ökumenischen Begegnungen war, Serbiens Demokratisierungsprozess und europäische Integration zu unterstützen.

Themen wie das Verhältnis zwischen Kirche und Staat, die Rolle der Kirchen in einer säkularisierten Gesellschaft, Serbiens Beziehungen zum Rest von Europa, und Versöhnung wurden angesprochen. Die Analyse des Inhalts und der Ergebnisse der Konsultationen innerhalb des breiteren ökumenischen, sozialen und politischen Kontexts, in dem sie stattgefunden haben, ist durch Interviews mit ihren Initiatoren und Organisatoren ergänzt. Die Arbeit wurde ausgeziechnet mit dem Förderpreis der Fritz und Helga Exner-Stiftung der Südosteuropa-Gesellschaft.
The Face by Robert Silverberg, The Face Of The Waters Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Face Of The Waters books, It is the year 2450. Humanity is scattered among the stars, which teem with intelligent life, while the home world has been destroyed by an inadvertent catastrophe two hundred years before. Thus all Earthmen are exiles, and Earth itself is only a memory. Hydros is a world of great complexity. It has almost no landmass, only a great globe-encompassing ocean with occasional tiny islands. Its seas swarm with apparently intelligent life-forms of a hundred kinds, and one - a bipedal humanoid form - has created a kind of land for itself: floating islands, woven from sea-borne materials, buffered by elaborate barricades against the ceaseless tidal surges that circle the planet. To Hydros have come an assortment of Earthmen. For them it's a world of no return: having no form of outbound space transportation. This brilliantly inventive novel tells their story, as they travel across the planet's endless ocean in search of the mysterious area from which no human has ever returned - the Face of the Waters. (First published 1991)

The Face by Shamoon Zamir, The Gift Of The Face Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Gift Of The Face books, Edward S. Curtis's The North American Indian is the most ambitious photographic and ethnographic record of Native American cultures ever produced. Published between 1907 and 1930 as a series of twenty volumes and portfolios, the work contains more than two thousand photographs intended to document the traditional culture of every Native American tribe west of the Mississippi. Many critics have claimed that Curtis's images present Native peoples as a "vanishing race," hiding both their engagement with modernity and the history of colonial violence. But in this major reappraisal of Curtis's work, Shamoon Zamir argues instead that Curtis's photography engages meaningfully with the crisis of culture and selfhood brought on by the dramatic transformations of Native societies. This crisis is captured profoundly, and with remarkable empathy, in Curtis's images of the human face. Zamir also contends that we can fully understand this achievement only if we think of Curtis's Native subjects as coauthors of his project. This radical reassessment is presented as a series of close readings that explore the relationship of aesthetics and ethics in photography. Zamir's richly illustrated study resituates Curtis's work in Native American studies and in the histories of photography and visual anthropology.

The Face by Bahadur Tejani, Laughing In The Face Of Terrorism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Laughing In The Face Of Terrorism books, LAUGHING IN THE FACE OF TERRORISM is a collection of five books under a new title making the works affordable and a bargain for teachers and students of literature, culture, diversity seekers and the general public. The search for harmony is a main theme in Tejani's work and here he speaks of it in words destined to be classic: Music has the sweetness of the September sun, the tenderness of a bird call in the woods, the depth of unknown oceans and the serenity of the earth's swift strong glide across space. You will marvel at the incredibly comic mission of the new Indian immigrant in America to teach Americans how to speak English properly. Or rejoice in the friendship between Washington, America's First President and a Muslim boy on Mount Rushmore. Even wonder at Shakespeare committing suicide on the stage. For variety, Tejani teases the women of the world by comparing their scent to the aroma of rain on earth; and exposes the vulnerability of men with satire on their pre-occupation with the 'thermostat between their legs'. In this collection Ba Tejani has set out with mischief in his heart, irreverent wisdom in his hands and a tickling, teasing imagination which carries you on with a smile and a large question. Just what is he upto? What gifts of humanist synthesis does he have in his heart that we emerge refined and delighted and not peeved after reading one of his stories or watching his play? 451 Pages

The Face by , Motivating Persistence In The Face Of Failure Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Motivating Persistence In The Face Of Failure books, Failure often presents a valuable learning opportunity, however, students may need motivational scaffolds to protect them from the negative psychological ramifications of failure. This work explored the effectiveness of a motivation-based intervention called an ego-protective buffer (EPB), that was designed to enhance persistence after failure. An ego-protective buffer (EPB) maintains a stable sense of competence by lessening the impact of failure on one's psyche. The specific instantiation of an EPB tested here was designed to elicit a combination of internal and external attributions for failure. External attributions protect one's sense of competence by averting the blame for failure away from the self, while internal attributions encourage students to take some responsibility for remedying the failure situation. Based on this theory, we embedded an EPB into the rule structure of a computer-based genetics game and unleashed it on 143 seventh graders. In the EPB condition, students were told that winning in the game was a probabilistic outcome, dependent on a combination of chance and skill on the part of the students. In the Control condition, students were told that winning in the game was a deterministic outcome, dependent on students' skill only. Students played the game during two class periods. Measures include pre- and posttests, motivational survey measures, and in-game behaviors. The EPB did have an effect on learning, but only amongst high-failing students. High-failing EPB students learned just as much as their low-failing counterparts. This was not so in the Control condition, where high-failing students learned far less than their low-failing counterparts. So the high-failing EPB group was behaving as if they were "buffered" from the effects of failure. We also found evidence of a possible mechanism behind this learning effect. In the high-failing EPB condition, students were equally likely to persist after success and failure, while in the Control condition, students were far more likely to persist after success, exhibiting risk averse behaviors. This difference was more exaggerated in a within-subjects comparison, contrasting the same individuals in situations of high and low failure. Finally, persistence after failure was associated with learning across the full sample of subjects. Regardless of condition or failure rate, students who persisted more after failure also learned more. This study, together with the author's related body of work, provides compelling evidence that an EPB is a viable intervention for encouraging persistence in the face of failure.
The Face by Nicholas A. Meade, Having Faith In The Face Of Uncertainty Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Having Faith In The Face Of Uncertainty books, Have you ever struggled to hold on to your faith in the midst of uncertain times? Have you wondered if you would lose hope all because you could not see what awaited you on horizon? You are not alone. Life's circumstances have a way of challenging the integrity of our faith. Looking back often strengthens our faith as we remember that we have overcome these seasons of uncertainty. This book, Having Faith in the Face of Uncertainty looks back on the author's period of uncertainty surrounding the premature birth of his son. He reflects on the journey and its uncertainty. In doing so he points out God's work in the process and how he endured in spite of this uncertainty. The purpose of this book is to provide hope for all those who feel their faith slipping away because of the unknown and to encourage others to tell similar stories. Like the author, we all have our faith challenged by uncertain times on occasion but the good news is our faith can survive. "Having Faith in the Face of Uncertainty is a wonderful account of how we can become overconfident in ones’ own faith only for God to expose areas in our lives in need of nourishment, but it also is valuable in exposing the treasure of self-reflection and seeing God’s hand at work when initially it seemed invisible. The human condition is unique to every individual but encouragement can always be drawn from becoming aware of the mental and physical struggles we face. This individual account my husband experienced is a true gem for people of faith, and hopefully it will inspire you to tell your story." -from the foreword by Tanesha R. Meade
The Face by Joseph S Willis, Finding Faith In The Face Of Doubt Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Finding Faith In The Face Of Doubt books, Many Americans say they are uncertain about their religious beliefs, although they continue to attend Christian and other churches. Interdenominational minister Willis presents this beautifully written book to help questioners maintain their integrity while relating to the vast Mystery that informs the universe beyond all understanding. "We know we don't know," Willis says, "and yet we all (even atheists) must stand on assumptions that help us lead good lives." To explore these assumptions, he discusses different ways of thinking about God, scientific and mythical views, the sources of good and evil, and the need for both freedom and commitment. He assures us we can all think reasonably about Ultimate Reality and find a faith that fits. The book grew from theology classes Willis taught in Unitarian churches and universities and from conversations with discontented members of other discussion groups. His clear and engaging prose is full of lively exchanges with his students. Frequent references to the best contemporary theologians (Bishop Spong, for example) and to philosophers, physicists, mythologists, and Bible experts provide an inspiring resource for those who long to resolve the conflict between faith and reason, doubt and belief.
The Face by Sharrona Pearl, Face On Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Face On books, Are our identities attached to our faces? If so, what happens when the face connected to the self is gone forever—or replaced? In Face/On, Sharrona Pearl investigates the stakes for changing the face–and the changing stakes for the face—in both contemporary society and the sciences. The first comprehensive cultural study of face transplant surgery, Face/On reveals our true relationships to faces and facelessness, explains the significance we place on facial manipulation, and decodes how we understand loss, reconstruction, and transplantation of the face. To achieve this, Pearl draws on a vast array of sources: bioethical and medical reports, newspaper and television coverage, performances by pop culture icons, hospital records, personal interviews, films, and military files. She argues that we are on the cusp of a new ethics, in an opportune moment for reframing essentialist ideas about appearance in favor of a more expansive form of interpersonal interaction. Accessibly written and respectfully illustrated, Face/On offers a new perspective on face transplant surgery as a way to consider the self and its representation as constantly present and evolving. Highly interdisciplinary, this study will appeal to anyone wishing to know more about critical interventions into recent medicine, makeover culture, and the beauty industry.

The Face by Susanne Muehleisen, Politeness And Face In Caribbean Creoles Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Politeness And Face In Caribbean Creoles books, Politeness and Face in Caribbean Creoles is the first collection to focus on socio-pragmatic issues in the Caribbean context, including the socio-cultural rules and principles underlying strategic language use. While the Caribbean has long been recognized as a rich and interesting site where cultural continuities meet with new "creolized" or innovative practices, questions of politeness practices, constructions of personhood, or the notion of face have so far been neglected in linguistic research on Caribbean Creoles. Drawing on linguistic politeness theory and Goffman's concept of face, eleven mostly fieldwork-based innovative contributions critically examine a range of topics, such as ritual insults, strategic use of "bad language", kiss-teeth, the performance of homophobic threats, greetings, address forms, advice-giving, socialization and discourse, parent-child discourse, register choice and communicative repertoire in the Caribbean context.
