Der Preis des Glücks Sie wollen das perfekte Paar sein, Kinder und Beruf unter einen Hut bringen, alles irgendwie richtig machen. Und sie finden die ideale Nanny, die ihnen das alles erst möglich macht. Doch wie gut kann man einen fremden Menschen kennen? Und wie sehr kann man ihm vertrauen? Sie haben Glück gehabt, denken sich Myriam und Paul, als sie Louise einstellen - eine Nanny wie aus dem Bilderbuch, die auf ihre beiden kleinen Kinder aufpasst, in der schönen Pariser Altbauwohnung im 10. Arrondissement. Wie mit unsichtbaren Fäden hält Louise die Familie zusammen, ebenso unbemerkt wie mächtig. In wenigen Wochen schon ist sie unentbehrlich geworden. Myriam und Paul ahnen nichts von den Abgründen und von der Verletzlichkeit der Frau, der sie das Kostbarste anvertrauen, das sie besitzen. Von der tiefen Einsamkeit, in der sich die fünfzigjährige Frau zu verlieren droht. Bis eines Tages die Tragödie über die kleine Familie hereinbricht. Ebenso unaufhaltsam wie schrecklich.

Animal Metaphors and the People of Israel in the Book of Jeremiah

Though interest in the use of metaphor in the Hebrew Bible has gained momentum in recent years, there is, to date, no investigation which concentrates exclusively on the animal metaphors in the book of Jeremiah. In this book, the author brings to light this neglected area of study by examining the language and imagery of the animal metaphors for the people of Israel in the book of Jeremiah. The contribution that these metaphors make to the theology of the book is given special attention, and since different interpretations have been given to many of the metaphors in question, the author resolves some of the questions regarding the meaning of these images in his in-depth study. Additionally, scholars have not tended to research metaphors for the nation of Israel and thus this volume draws attention to a particular subject which has largely been overlooked. In chapter one Foreman familiarizes the reader with the major theoretical approaches to metaphor and spells out the approach taken in his investigation. Eighteen metaphors are then thoroughly analyzed in chapters two, three, and four. These metaphors are grouped into three categories, each of which constitutes a chapter: pastoral metaphors, mammal metaphors, and bird metaphors. Chapter five draws the results of the inquiry together. This study reveals how animal metaphors make important theological claims about the nation of Israel and demonstrates that they are essential elements of the message of the book of Jeremiah. Foreman's elucidation of the language and imagery of the animal metaphors for the people of Israel leads to a richer understanding of these metaphors and ultimately contributes to a more precise interpretation of the message of the book of Jeremiah as a whole.

The extent to which government should be involved with regulation in the private sector is much debated. More fundamentally, one might ask exactly what is regulation, why is it needed, how is it formulated, and how is it enforced? These questions are especially relevant at a time in United States history when federal involvement in spheres traditionally left to individuals is being widely debated on all sides of the political spectrum.

Depuis plus de 20 ans, le Pentateuque en general et la Genese en particulier font l'objet d'un vaste debat parmi les specialistes de la Bible. Les traditions qui constituent ce livre ont certainement une longue histoire que les historiens s'efforcent de retrouver. Aujourd'hui, cependant, les exegetes etudient principalement le processus de redaction entame sans doute lors de l'Exil a Babylone et qui a conduit au livre tel que nous le connaissons. D'autres s'attachent a la forme finale de la Genese pour l'etudier comme un des chefs d'oeuvre de la litterature israelite ancienne. Les articles presentes dans ce livre reprennent ces questions en vue de nourrir le debat et de faire progresser notre connaissance du premier livre de la Bible hebraique. Le present ouvrage constitue les Actes des travaux du 48e Colloquium biblicum Lovaniense qui s'est tenu en juillet 1999 a Louvain et dont le theme etait le livre de la Genese.

The death of the book has been duly announced, and with it the end of brick-and-mortar libraries, traditional publishers, linear narrative, authorship, and disciplinarity, along with the emergence of a more equitable discursive order. These essays suggest that it won't be that simple. While the contributors to this volume are enthusiastic about the possibilities created by digital technologies, they also see the new meida raising serious critical issues that force us to reexamine basic notions about rhetoric, reading, and the nature of discourse itself.

Ferment is the correct word by which to characterize current Jeremiah studies, a deep and broad stirring that relies on previous scholarship but that seeks to move beyond that scholarship in bold and new ways. This collection of fine essays not only reflects that ferment but in important ways contributes to it and advances the discussion. Most broadly, the current discussion seeks to move beyond the historical-critical categories of Sigmund Mowinckel and Bernhard Duhm and the classic formulation of three sources, A, B, and C. In Jeremiah as in other parts of biblical scholarship, the new questions concern the inadequacy of historical-critical readings of a positivistic kind and the prospect of synchronic readings, either through ideological analysis that seeks to show that ideology shapes the book, or through canonical readings that find a large theological intentionality to the whole of the book. It turns out, perforce, that ideological and canonical readings are closely twinned in their judgment about the literature. This present collection, which includes both new voices and some of the established major players in the discussion, merits important attention." From the preface, by Walter Brueggemann
