In this revised and updated edition of a modern classic, Bryant Myers shows how Christian mission can contribute to dismantling poverty and social evil. Integrating the best principles and practice of the international development community, the thinking and experience of Christian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and a theological framework for transformational development, Myers demonstrates what is possible when we cease to treat the spiritual and physical domains of life as separate and unrelated.
Londra è una città fantasma. I pochi che non hanno voluto − o non hanno potuto – dare seguito all’ordine d’evacuazione del governo, sono barricati in casa, nella vana speranza che tutto quello che stanno vivendo sia un incubo da cui presto si sveglieranno. Ma è tutto reale. Perché sono reali le vetrine infrante, i negozi saccheggiati, i cadaveri lasciati per strada. E, soprattutto, sono reali le bande di uomini assetati di sangue che, dopo essere comparsi all’improvviso dal nulla, stanno mettendo a ferro e fuoco la città e alcuni suoi sobborghi. Uomini che continuano ad arrivare senza sosta, come l’onda di piena di un fiume immenso. Un fiume che ha la sua sorgente all’Inferno, come sanno bene John Camp ed Emily Loughty.
Dopo il loro ultimo «viaggio» nel mondo dei Dannati, infatti, i varchi interdimensionali non soltanto si sono moltiplicati, ma sono anche rimasti aperti, portando letteralmente l’Inferno in Terra e catapultando centinaia d’innocenti «dall’altra parte». E c’è solo una persona che sa come chiudere per sempre le Porte delle Tenebre: Paul Loomis, l’ex capo di Emily. Purtroppo Paul Loomis è morto, si è suicidato sette anni fa, dopo aver ucciso la moglie e l’amante di lei con due colpi di fucile.
Ma Emily e John sanno dove trovarlo e come mettersi in contatto con lui. Perché lo hanno già incontrato all’Inferno…
Ethan "Hutch" Hutchinson hasn't seen his old college pals for nearly a decade. Now fate has brought them together again as one of the gang is put on trial for a brutal, sense murder.
The Chicago police and prosecutor think they have their perp, but Hutch isn't about to sit silently in a courtroom as someone he cares about is wrongfully convicted. When Hutch and his friends join forces to search for the real killer, what they find shatters every notion they have about friendship, loss and redemption... and may very well cost Hutch--and the woman he loves--their lives.

LISO Advanced contains 10 Units. Listening In and Speaking Out focuses on spontaneous spoken English with the aim of bridging the gap between "classroom English" an the English that students are likey to encounter on their own. The activities are based on two kinds of recordings meke by native speakers of English from various regions of the United States. The first recording in each unit is an unscripted, unrehearsed Monolog wich lasts approximately on minute. Each speaker describes a past experience or relates an anecdore in an informal manner, as if speaking to friends. The second recording in each unit is an unrehearsed Dramatization, also unscripted to ensure spontaneity wich lasts approximately a minute and a half.
It incorporates some element of conflict or disagreement in order to expose students to expressions of strong feelings and to provide them with an opportunity to discuss a variety of emotional responses. Because the language on the recording was unrehearsed and the interactions were spontaneous the learners will hear many instances of natural hesitations, interruptions, parenthetical expressions, unfinished sentences and awkward or "incorrect" grammatical construcions.
Sometimes they will hear very rapid speech an at other times slower rates of delivery.
Through exposeure to the ordinary phenomena of spoken English in LISO, learner are given the opportunity to develop the skill of understanding real conversations in English spoken at normal speed. In addition, the material provides: 1) An opportunity for students to speak informally.
2) A learning environment that is student-centered and. 3) Activities that help students develop the confidence, motivation and ideas for on-going self-instruction.
