From the sumptuous lakeshore to the inner city, these images capture the light, color, and mood of our public spaces throughout the changing seasons. Frederick Law Olmsted´s and Jens Jensen´s vision of a ´garden in a city´ is reflected within the pages of this book. The images at once subtly incorporate and contrast the natural landscape within the urban landscape. The Prairie-style architecture that is found in many of Chicago´s parks is both a reflection of the natural prairie and a reminder of the concrete urban landscape within which the parks are located. These full-color photographs of Chicago´s well-known and lesser-visited parks make a perfect gift for those who enjoy outdoor spaces or gardens, or for those who fondly remember the parks of their Chicago youth. The totality of these images is an eloquent visual portrait of the origins of our bold and proud city from the vast wilderness of the mid-western prairie. Frank Dina has brought about an impressive re-discovery and re-affirmation of these islands of peace, beauty, and tranquillity amidst the bustle and dynamism that is Chicago.

Dying is what changed Mary O´Reilly´s life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary´s trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost´s word just doesn´t hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, don´t think she´s nuts. Twenty-four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected state senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the senator prepares to move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the Senator´s wife. Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death. She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of five little girls whose cases, 24 years later, are still all unsolved. As she digs further, she becomes the next target for the serial killers´ quest to tie up all his loose ends. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Erin Spencer.

Interfaith Dialogue - Global Perspectives
103,52 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book addresses issues central to todays Catholic Church, focusing on the relationship between various religions in different contexts and regions across the world. The diverse array of contributors present an inclusively interfaith enterprise, investigating a wide range of encounters and perspectives. The essays include approaches from the Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, and Baháí traditions, in a variety of geographic contexts. Contributors reflect on Muslims in the West, Christian-Buddhist social activism, and on Chinese, Indian, and Japanese religions. The volume also explores the experiences of communities that are often marginalized and overlooked such as the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders of Australia and the Karen tribal peoples of Thailand. Contributors examine the works of the Focolare, Gülen, and Rissh? K?sei-kai movements, and integrate the vision of Raimon Panikkar and Ken Wilber. Chapters incorporate discussions of dialogue documents such as Nostra Aetate and Dabru Emet, and methodologies such as Receptive Ecumenism, Comparative Theology, and Scriptural Reasoning. Among other goals, the book seeks to offer glimpses into interfaith dialogues across the world and examine what Christians can learn from other religions and global contexts. Edmund Kee-Fook Chia is originally from Malaysia. He served for eight years as Executive Secretary of Interreligious Dialogue for the Asian Bishops Conferences, and taught for seven years at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, USA. Since 2011 he has been teaching at the Australian Catholic University. He is the author of Edward Schillebeeckx and Interreligious Dialogue.
