Die interdisziplinar angelegte Reihe setzt sich zum Ziel, das vielschichtige Wechselspiel zwischen Mensch und Welt zu beleuchten, wie es sich im Gebrauch von Stimme, Gebarde, Geste, Schrift und Zeichen manifestiert. Dieser Band befasst sich mit einer Jugend- und popularkulturellen Praxis: mit Rap, der verbalen Komponente unter den funf Ausdrucksformen der Hip Hop-Kultur. In nur wenigen Jahrzehnten ist diese interaktive und transnationale Kultur des Wettstreits und des Ausdrucks von Botschaften weltweit zu einem bedeutenden asthetischen Kommunikationsmedium geworden. Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler verschiedener Fachbereiche machten sich das an mundliche wie schriftliche Diskurstraditionen anschliebare Genre Rap unter verschiedenen Akzentsetzungen und in verschiedenen Landern und Kulturen zur Forschungsaufgabe. Ihre auf empirischen Untersuchungen basierenden Ergebnisse lassen erkennen, was diese Kultur alles bieten kann: eine politikrelevante (Uber)Lebenspraxis und - philosophie; eine Realisierung konfrontativaggressiver Energien, durch die Aufbau und Fortbestand eines Kollektivs gesichert werden kann, ein set beliebig kontextualisierbarer tools, aus dem sich spezifische Strategien der Identitatsher- und -darstellung ableiten lassen; ein (Sprach)Laboratorium, in dem dominante, aber auch sub- und gegenkulturelle Symbolsysteme rekonfiguriert werden, so dass auf Wirklichkeits(ausschnitts)konstruktionen und somit auch auf die Kulturprogramme unserer Weltgesellschaft eingewirkt werden kann.

Wüssten wir nicht alle gerne, was andere Menschen wirklich denken, fühlen oder planen? Wie wir sie zu etwas überreden oder beeinflussen können? Wie wir sofort erkennen können, ob sie besorgt oder zufrieden sind? Und wünschen wir uns nicht auch, dass sie uns als jemanden wahrnehmen, der Selbstsicherheit, Autorität und Empathie ausstrahlt? Menschen kommunizieren ständig nonverbal: durch Körpersprache und Gesichtsausdrücke, Tonlage und Aussprache, die Art, wie sie Gefühle zeigen oder sich kleiden, aber auch durch die bewussten und unbewussten Verhaltensweisen und Einstellungen. In diesem Buch zeigt uns der Bestsellerautor und Körperspracheexperte Joe Navarro, wie wir diese universelle Sprache verstehen und anwenden können. Denn wer diesen Code kennt, wird sowohl beruflich als auch privat besser und effizienter kommunizieren, seine Ziele leichter erreichen und erfolgreicher sein.

Moving Beyond Lip-Service Christianity to True Faith

We live in a world in which there is great confusion about what it means to be a Christian and what it means to have genuine faith. Faith is more than belief, and being a Christian is more than attending a church service, a Bible study, or helping out the poor and needy. True faith, genuine faith in Christ, is not something that we need to convince people that we possess. Instead, true faith is seen through who we are and what we do. More Than Words is a book about faith. It is not so much a book about what faith is but instead what true faith looks like. More Than Words is a practical study of the book of James and provides understanding to what a life truly surrendered to Christ looks like and how it is to be lived. More Than Words will encourage and challenge you to examine your hearts and life to see if the faith you claim to have is truly a biblical faith.

Gretchen Kohler is an Amana storekeeper's daughter with a secret passion for writing. But artistic pursuits are frowned upon in her conservative Amana village, so she confines her poems and stories to her journals, letting only close friends read them. When a young reporter comes into her store, she believes she's found a kindred spirit. She shares a few of her stories with him--only to have her trust betrayed in the worst of ways, resulting in trouble for her entire community. The scandal is made even worse by the fact that gypsies have camped nearby and seem to be preying upon the Amanans' compassionate, pacifist nature. Will Gretchen lose her job, her reputation, and the love of her childhood beau all because of one bad decision?

The Astonishing Power of Face Reading

Researchers have found that 93% of communication is nonverbal. That means the words we use are only seven percent of what we are trying to say. We simply havent evolved enough yet. So we must rely on the forms of communication that we used before we had language to help us better understand one another. Physiognomy, the scientific name for face reading, is a very accurate way for you to effectively identify and analyze the features of the face that characterize personality traits. It is an excellent tool for any type of persuading and understanding. Face reading is based on more than 3,000 years of observation and research that there is a correlation between the features of the human face and the personality traits of its owner. It's all in the face, or more specifically, features of the face. For example, a straight nose belongs to a person who makes buying decisions logically. Protruding ears are a sign of someones independence and nonconformity. Low eyebrows show a tendency to interrupt. In this book you will learn: How to accurately read any face within 60 seconds! How to tell if someone is financially conservative or a free spender by looking at his or her nose! How a person thinks by simply looking at their eyebrows! How to determine how much space a person needs by looking at their eyelids!

Your character, more than anything else, will impact how much you accomplish in this life. It is more important than your talent, your education, your background, or your network of friends. Andy Stanley helps you chart a course toward becoming a man or woman of character. You'll discover a definition of character that will inspire you for a lifetime, the external and internal benefits of strong character, the six false beliefs behind negative behaviors, and more. Using practical insights, biblical exposition, and engaging stories, Stanley guides you step-by-step in setting the personal goals that will build the foundation for true success. The Secret to a Life with No Regrets How important is your character? It determines everything about you! How much you will accomplish in life, and whether you are worth knowing. How you will respond to success, and how you will weather the inevitable storms of life. This is a book about uncompromised living. It is about choosing every day to be a man or woman of integrity, a person whose actions speak louder than words. Bestselling author Andy Stanley challenges you to become what you were meant to be: a person whose commitment to doing the right thing, whatever the cost, will inspire others and change your world. Story Behind the Book As a pastor, I spend a substantial amount of my time with people who are digging themselves out from personal environmental catastrophes—circumstances that were often years in the making but “took them by surprise.” Another group of people have faced, or are facing, storms of life that are not of their own making, storms created by the character deficits of others—storms that are a natural part of a fallen world. There, in the midst of unjust treatment and seemingly undeserved pain, the true character of a man or woman is revealed. What you see in such moments is what was really there all along. This book is about change. It’s about the process of taking raw materials and molding them, shaping them, and refining them into a finished product. Whether you know it or not, that process is happening in you. Your character, not your accomplishments or acquisitions, determines your legacy. From the Trade Paperback edition.
