Finster, mysteriös, elektrisierend Revival erzählt die Geschichte des Jungen Jamie und des Predigers Charles Jacobs, deren Wege sich von den Sechzigern bis heute auf unglückselige Weise immer wieder kreuzen. Sie steuert auf ein beängstigendes, auswegloses Ende zu, wie es selbst Stephen King bislang nicht zu Papier gebracht hat, und ist gleichzeitig Abrechnung mit dem Religionsfanatismus in unserem hoch technisierten Zeitalter und Verbeugung vor den Größen des klassischen Horrors. Der kleine Jamie spielt vor dem Haus mit seinen Plastiksoldaten, da schiebt sich ein dunkler Schatten über ihn, ein Schatten, den er sein Leben lang nicht loswerden wird. Er blickt auf und sieht Charles Jacobs über sich, den jungen Methodistenprediger, der in der neuenglischen Gemeinde gerade sein Amt antritt. Im Nu gewinnt der charismatische Jacobs die Herzen der gottesfürchtigen Einwohner. Den Kindern haben es vor allem die elektrischen Spielereien angetan, mit denen er Bibelgeschichten veranschaulicht. Das alles endet, als ihn ein entsetzlicher Unfall vom Glauben abfallen lässt und er eine letzte Predigt hält, die in einer rasenden Gottverfluchung gipfelt. Von der Gemeinde verstoßen, tingelt er fortan über die Jahrmärkte, wo er elektrische Experimente vorführt, die zunehmend spektakulärer werden. Und immer schrecklichere Folgen nach sich ziehen. Über die Jahre trifft Jamie, inzwischen drogenabhängiger Musiker, wiederholt auf Jacobs, der ihn jedes Mal tiefer in seine dämonische Welt zieht. Als Jamie sich dessen klar wird, gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Das finale Experiment steht bevor.

Warrior for Revival is a riveting account of how the Lord Jesus touched the life of a young man, Philip Mantofa, delivered him from the depths of violence and depression, and used him mightily as a chosen vessel of revival in Indonesia and Asia. While Pastor Philip was still in his twenties, a divine firebrand sparked city-wide revivals which were noted for creating immediate and enduring impact, particularly among young people. More than 100,000 people experienced salvation while scores of youths were equipped and commissioned to pioneer thriving local churches. Such a transforming anointing and influence can only arise from a life deeply rooted in Scripture and an intimate fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Warrior for Revival is evidence that God is able to raise young people to become standard-bearers even for the older generation.

Flares are in. Flares are out. Flares are back again. Fads constantly cycle and recycle through popular culture, each time in a slightly new incarnation. The term ‘retro’ has become the buzz word for describing such trends, but what does it mean? Elizabeth Guffey explores here the ambiguous cultural meanings of the term and reveals why some trends just never seem to stay dead. Drawing upon a wealth of original research and entertaining anecdotal material, Guffey unearths the roots of the term retro and chronicles its evolving manifestations in culture and art throughout the last century. Whether in art, design, fashion or music, the idea of retro has often meant a re-emergence of styles and sensibilities that evoke familiar touchstones of memory from the not-so-distant past. Guffey explores how and why the past keeps coming back to haunt us in a variety of forms, from the comeback of Art Nouveau nearly fifty years after its original decline, to the infusion of Art Deco into the kitsch glamour of Pop art, to the recent popularity over 1980s vogue. She also considers how advertisers and media have employed the power of such cultural nostalgia, using recycled television jingles, familiar old slogans and famous art to sell a surprising range of products. An engrossing and wholly unprecedented study, Retroreveals how the past is embedded in the future of contemporary art and culture.

This resource considers the Baroque cello's revival as part of the period instrument movement from the viewpoints of over forty cellists from three generations and four luthiers who have worked on period cellos. What emerges is a nuanced and detailed picture of the cello in the past and present and the varied instruments now played under the label "Baroque cello." Period instruments played with appropriate techniques have become a major presence in classical music in recent decades. For the cello, which changed substantially between the end of the sixteenth and early eighteenth centuries, it is challenging to describe specific traits for certain time periods, let alone how it was played in those periods. By chronicling the searches of over forty top cellists in England, Europe, and North America, the author goes far in revealing the great variety of forms that exist. This is the first study in which the revival of a single period instrument has been considered in such qualified detail and will be of great interest to musicologists, luthiers, and anyone interested in string history.

P. J. MATHEWS ARGUES AGAINST the received opinion that the Irish Revival was a purely mystical affair of high culture characterized by a preoccupation with a backward-looking Celtic spirituality, nostalgia for Gaelic Ireland, and anti-modern traditionalism. Instead, he claims, the time of the Irish Revival was a progressive period that witnessed the cooperation of various self-help movements -- the Abbey Theatre, the Gaelic League, and the Irish Agricultural Organization Society -- which encouraged local modes of material and cultural development. These different groups were bound together by their willingness to use traditional cultural forms as the basis for an alternative modernization project. Mathews points out that these self-help initiatives were so successful that they very quickly opened up a sphere of influence rivaling that of parliamentary politics. Much of this activity laid the groundwork for the emergence of the Sinn Fein in 1905. Making use of important theater productions of the period, Mathews skillfully traces the connections and overlaps among these radical movements and demonstrates that the self-help idea was crucial to the decolonization and modernization of Irish society during the early years of the twentieth century.

God is the cause of all causes. Volumes have been written on the reasons America has prospered and conquered, due to our guns, our germs, and our steel. Why?

REVIVAL, HALLELUJAH! presents a collection of evangelical poems by author Paul Juby as a personal message to unbelievers, fencesitters, pastors, church leaders, and congregations. Church leaders are wonderfully dedicated people, yet their churches are often lacking in members. They need the Holy Spirit to awaken in them the need to evangelize, to bring people to accept Jesus, and to save lives. Revival can be accomplished through enthusiasm that is contagious and sets each church and congregation on fireby telling people gently but firmly that they need to move into action for Jesus. A dedicated worship leader can read the poems from Revival, Hallelujah! to their congregations as they worship together. Too often people talk of revival as impossible, but God delights in impossibilities. These poems can help to spur anyone into action who might be hesitating.

Im ländlichen Wisconsin erwachen eines Tages die Toten zum Leben. So muss nun Officer Dana Cypress, mit dem kritischen Blick der Medien, religiösen Fanatikern und der Quarantäne, die der Staat allen auferlegt hat, umgehen. Nicht nur die Polizistin ist betroffen, auch ihre wiederauferstandene Schwester Em schwebt in großer Gefahr, als ein Auftragskiller der Amisch hinter beiden her ist. Währenddessen deckt die Vorsitzende des Militärs, General Cale, ihr wahres Vorhaben mit den Einwohnern Wausaus auf. Gemeinsam mit Comiczeichner Mike Norton ist dem HACK/SLASH-Erfinder Tim Seeley erneut eine Comicstory mit der perfekten Mischung aus klassischen Genreelementen und intelligentem Suspense gelungen. Dana Cypress erinnert als Ermittlerin fürs Rothschild Police Departement, die im winterlichen schneebedeckten Wisconsin in einem Dickicht von Rätseln umherstolpert, an den schwangeren Sheriff Marge (gespielt von Frances McDorman) aus dem Kultfilm FARGO der Coen-Brüder. Und in seinem Vorwort zum ersten Band erklärt der kanadische Comiczeichner Jeff Lemire (u.a. ESSEX COUNTY) auch REVIVAL bereits zum Kult.

This book breaks new ground in interpreting how identity informs the judgements of State workers, as normative orientations coincide with identities and authority. At all levels, legal ordering becomes entangled with moral orientations and the micropolitics of identification, as workers interact with one another and their clients. The result is neither law nor order, but a fragile cultural politics of workers acting on citizens as they act out their identities. Using case studies in the field, the book conducts an exploration of the State, whilst holding on to the strong notions of identity, power and normative orientation. It introduces a unique notion of rights? by arguing that workers assert identity and power as they make judgements about who gets what from the State.
