Book Two in Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Quartet In 2012, Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend introduced readers to the unforgettable Elena and Lila, whose lifelong friendship provides the backbone for the Neapolitan Novels. The Story of a New Name is the second book in this series. With these books, which the New Yorker's James Wood described as "large, captivating, amiably peopled...a beautiful and delicate tale of confluence and reversal," Ferrante proves herself to be one of Italy's most accomplished storytellers. She writes vividly about a specific neighborhood of Naples from the late-1950s through to the current day and about two remarkable young women who are very much the products of that place and time. Yet in doing so she has created a world in which readers will recognize themselves and has drawn a marvelously nuanced portrait of friendship. In The Story of a New Name, Lila has recently married and made her enterée into the family business; Elena, meanwhile, continues her studies and her exploration of the world beyond the neighborhood that she so often finds stifling. Love, jealousy, family, freedom, commitment, and above all friendship: these are signs under which both women live out this phase in their stories. Marriage appears to have imprisoned Lila, and the pressure to excel is at times too much for Elena. Yet the two young women share a complex and evolving bond that is central to their emotional lives and is a source of strength in the face of life's challenges. In these Neapolitan Novels, Elena Ferrante, the acclaimed author of The Days of Abandonment, gives readers a poignant and universal story about friendship and belonging.

Lila und Elena sind sechzehn Jahre alt, und sie sind verzweifelt. Lila hat noch am Tage ihrer Hochzeit erfahren, dass ihr Mann sie hintergeht – er macht Geschäfte mit den allseits verhassten Solara-Brüdern, den lokalen Camorristi. Für Lila, arm geboren und durch die Ehe schlagartig zu Geld und Ansehen gekommen, brechen leidvolle Zeiten an. Elena hingegen verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in einen jungen Studenten, doch der scheint nur mit ihren Gefühlen zu spielen. Sie ist eine regelrechte Vorzeigeschülerin geworden, muss aber feststellen, dass das, was sie sich mühsam erarbeitet hat, in ihrer neapolitanischen Welt kaum etwas gilt. Trotz all dieser Widrigkeiten beharren Lila und Elena immer weiter darauf, ihr Leben selbst zu bestimmen, auch wenn der Preis, den sie dafür zahlen müssen, bisweilen brutal ist. Woran die beiden jungen Frauen sich festhalten, ist ihre Freundschaft. Aber können sie einander wirklich vertrauen? Elena Ferrante hat einen Weltbestseller geschrieben. Ein Gipfelwerk der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Und einen Roman, den man erschüttert und begeistert liest!

The face of anorexia is not a glossy model in a perfume ad. It's a starving animal, circling the empty cupboards, blank-eyed and vacant. It's a face frozen in a rictus grin, mouthing lies. 'I'm fine,' it says. 'Everything is under control.' 'I have always felt hungry,’ says Emma Scrivener. ‘Not just for food, but for everything: from money to recognition. I’m a human chasm, a vortex of insatiable longing.’ Rescued from a disorder that nearly killed her, Emma is now passionate about warning others about the dark and hidden world she inhabited for too long. Harrowing, heart-breaking, human and humourous, this book will grip you from start to finish.

In this book, Dawson uses the third section of the Book of Isaiah (chapters 56-66) as his scriptural basis. He leads us through this study by first exploring diminishing names and how we can be free of them. The author then directs us to how we may receive the blessing of the new names God bestows upon us--My Delight Is In Her, Sought Out, Repairer of the Breach. It uses imaginative stories, prayer, and reflection to enable us to fully experience the transition from responding to our defeating names to living our fresh identities in God.

Building Strong Brands

As industries turn increasingly hostile, it is clear that strong brand-building skills are needed to survive and prosper. In David Aaker's pathbreaking book, MANAGING BRAND EQUITY, managers discovered the value of a brand as a strategic asset and a company's primary source of competitive advantage. Now, in this compelling new work, Aaker uses real brand-building cases from Saturn, General Electric, Kodak, Healthy Choice, McDonald's, and others to demonstrate how strong brands have been created and managed. A common pitfall of brand strategists is to focus on brand attributes. Aaker shows how to break out of the box by considering emotional and self-expressive benefits and by introducing the brand-as-person, brand-as-organisation, and brand-as-symbol perspectives. A second pitfall is to ignore the fact that individual brands are part of a larger system consisting of many intertwined and overlapping brands and subbrands. Aaker shows how to manage the "brand system" to achieve clarity and synergy, to adapt to a changing environment, and to leverage brand assets into new markets and products. As executives in a wide range of industries seek to prevent their products and services from becoming commodities, they are recommitting themselves to brands as a foundation of business strategy. This new work will be essential reading for the battle-ready.

It is astonishing to see how many philosophical disputes collapse into insignificance the moment you subject them to this simple test of tracing a concrete consequence. There can be no difference any-where that doesn't make a difference elsewhere—no difference in abstract truth that doesn't express itself in a difference in concrete fact and in conduct consequent upon that fact, imposed on somebody, somehow, somewhere and somewhen. The whole function of philosophy ought to be to find out what definite difference it will make to you and me, at definite instants of our life, if this world-formula or that world-formula be the true one.

The Epistle of Jesus to the Church

A Commentary on the Revelation

The Epistle of Jesus to the Church is a commentary on the book of Revelation that assumes Jesus was the author and John the reporter of the words and events described. Here one will not find an explanation of an anti-Roman message written by John in hidden codes and apocalyptic motifs to fool Roman authorities. John the apostle and prophet was the faithful scribe, who did not create the message but faithfully and accurately described all that he saw and heard. This commentary follows the principle that the Scriptures explain themselves, because the Revelation is a word from Jesus to his church--a word that is grounded in the Scriptures. The Epistle of Jesus to the Church has been written with teachers, students, and pastors in mind. The interpretation of the book of Revelation is thorough; difficult passages are addressed, and plausible answers are provided to the questions posed by in-depth study of the biblical book. This is a commentary for personal study or classroom instruction, one that may be confidently used to preach and teach the Revelation of Jesus to the church.
