This book is intended to help preteens and teenagers understand God?s word and revelation presented in the Bible. Its purpose is to teach biblical doctrines about God, the Holy Spirit, creation, angels, the devil, and sin through a story that attempts to draw children?s attention and make the Bible easier to understand?make it simpler, not simplistic. Sometimes, Bible stories may be too complicated or not intellectually challenging enough for this age group, who are avid fiction readers, unaware that the Bible is so much richer with its fantastic beings, amazing creatures, and awesome acts of God, considering that His Word is true and His creation is real. Sometimes stories are presented in a fast pace, not giving the reader a chance to either process the information or create a mental image of the story so it can impact learning and promote transformation. Often, the goal of reading a lot of information about the Bible, without giving the chance to analyze it, becomes more important than giving the Word of God time to renew the mind and mold the character, enabling the reader to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus.

Behavior is the ultimate function of the nervous system, and the study of it is very multidisciplinary.

Encyclopedia of Behavioral Neuroscience is the first and only multi-volume reference to comprehensively cover the foundation knowledge in the field. This three volume work is edited by world renowned behavioral neuroscientists George F. Koob, The Scripps Research Institute, Michel Le Moal, Université Bordeaux, and Richard F. Thompson, University of Southern California and written by a premier selection of the leading scientists in their respective fields. Each section is edited by a specialist in the relevant area. The important research in all areas of Behavioral Neuroscience is covered in a total of 210 chapters on topics ranging from neuroethology and learning and memory, to behavioral disorders and psychiatric diseases. The only comprehensive Encyclopedia of Behavioral Neuroscience on the market Addresses all recent advances in the field Written and edited by an international group of leading researchers, truly representative of the behavioral neuroscience community Includes many entries on the advances in our knowledge of the neurobiological basis of complex behavioral, psychiatric, and neurological disorders Richly illustrated in full color Extensively cross referenced to serve as the go-to reference for students and researchers alike The online version features full searching, navigation, and linking functionality An essential resource for libraries serving neuroscientists, psychologists, neuropharmacologists, and psychiatrists

Ein zauberhaftes Duo zum Verlieben Die 7-jährige Ella hat eine ganz normale Familie: chaotischer kleiner Bruder, Papa und Mama. Hm, na ja, Ellas Mama ist nicht gaaaanz so wie andere Mütter. Denn: sie ist eine wischwaschechte Fee! Und Ella - ist ihre kleine Junior-Fee. So eine Feen-Mama ist super praktisch, wenn mal morgens wieder keiner Milch besorgt hat, oder die extra pingelige Nachbarin spontan zum Tee vorbeikommt. Denn, Hokuspokus, zaubert Mami dann - eine Kuh in die Küche und fliegenden Muffinteig. Wie gut, dass Ella ihrer Mama zur Hand geht, die ist nämlich die Allerallerbeste auf der Welt und immer guter Laune - nur mit dem Zaubern, da hapert es manchmal ein bisschen.

"'Der lustigste Science-Fiction-Roman seit ‘Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis.'" The Verge Der Eurovision Song Contest im Weltall: Vor knapp hundert Jahren hat sich die Galaxis entzweit – ein Krieg löschte beinahe sämtliches Leben aus. In der Folge erfand man eine gemeinschaftsbildende Tradition. Etwas Schönes und Unterhaltsames, um den Frieden, die die Liebe und das Leben zu feiern. Und so wurde der metagalaktische Grand Prix geboren, in dem alle empfindungsfähigen Zivilisationen friedlich gegeneinander antreten. Seitdem muss jede neue Spezies, die Mitglied der kosmischen Gemeinschaft werden will, an der Show teilnehmen. Das Ganze ist ein Riesenspaß, das Problem ist nur: Auf dem letzten Platz wartet die völlige Vernichtung – und die Aliens haben ganz eigene Vorstellungen davon, wer für die Erde antreten soll ... Auftritt: Decibel Jones, Glam-Rocker der Extra-Klasse, gewesener Rock'n'Roll-Messias und Fast-immer-noch-Berühmtheit. Zusammen mit seiner Band, den "Absolute Zeroes", bekommt er die größte Bühne, die es je gab. Und nicht nur die Musikpresse ist der Ansicht: In unberufeneren Händen hat das Schicksal der Menschheit noch nie gelegen. "Space Opera hat das Herz von Douglas Adams und die Seele von David Bowie. Ich liebe das Buch und es hat mich glücklich gemacht." Chuck Wendig "Cat Valente ist völlig verrückt und brillant. Niemand sonst hätte diese Nummer durchziehen können." John Scalzi Für alle Leser von Douglas Adams, John Scalzi und Terry Pratchett. Und natürlich für alle Fans des ESC.
