Lorna Byrne sees and talks with angels every day of her life and has done since she was a baby. As a child Lorna was told by the angels that her job on this earth was to share the wisdom and knowledge that God and the angels were giving her. When Lorna’s husband died, her world fell apart. In Stairways to Heaven she tells the story of how she pulled her life back together and how she, an uneducated mother of four, broke her silence and started to spread the angels’ message to the world. Lorna tells us of the future that God envisages for us – and some possible other futures, depending on the decisions we make. ‘Everyone must play their part’, she says. She reveals some of the most extraordinarily detailed information about angels and the way they work in the world, that has ever been written down. She also introduces us to the Guardian Angel of the Earth and explains why it is so important that we listen to him. She tells the tragic love story of two spirits who she met first as a young child. These spirits stayed close to her for twenty years using Lorna’s spiritual gifts to heal those who had done them wrong – and also to heal the descendants of those wrongdoers, whose lives were still being overshadowed. The overwhelming reaction of readers to Lorna’s writing – regardless of religious belief – is that it gives them hope, helping them to realise that no matter how alone they might feel they have a guardian angel by their side.

What has brought about the transformation of the British film industry over the last few decades, to the beginnings of what is arguably a new golden era? In the mid-1980s the industry was in a parlous state. The number of films produced in the UK was tiny. Cinema attendance had dipped to an all-time low, cinema buildings were in a state of disrepair and home video had yet to flourish. Since then, while many business challenges - especially for independent producers and distributors - remain, the industry overall has developed beyond recognition. In recent years, as British films have won Oscars, Cannes Palms and Venice Golden Lions, releases such as Love Actually, Billy Elliot, Skyfall, Paddington and the Harry Potter series have found enormous commercial as well as critical success. The UK industry has encouraged, and benefitted from, a huge amount of inward investment, much of it from the Hollywood studios, but also from the National Lottery via the UK Film Council and BFI. This book portrays the visionaries and officials who were at the helm as a digital media revolution began to reshape the industry. Through vivid accounts based on first-hand interviews of what was happening behind the scenes, film commentator and critic Geoffrey Macnab provides in-depth analysis of how and why the British film industry has risen like a phoenix from the ashes.

From Native Americans' use of tobacco for solemnizing oaths to the spread of New Age religious beliefs in Haight-Ashbury coffeehouses, drugs have been intimately associated with American spirituality. In Stairways to Heaven, Robert Fuller presents a rarely considered but very important dimension of American religious history—the use of mind-altering substances as an aid to spirituality—in a clear, engaging style. Fuller's entertaining narrative illustrates how such substances as peyote, jimson weed, hallucinogenic mushrooms, LSD, marijuana, wine, and coffee have stimulated ecstatic revelations of spiritual truth and strengthened the social bonds that sustain communities of faith.Stairways to Heaven is unique in the study of American religious history in two ways: first, it demonstrates that the ritual use of mind-altering substances has contributed to the innovation and diversity that characterize American religious life; second, it uses interdisciplinary research into the religious uses of drugs to shed light on the controversial legal, ethical, and spiritual controversies that surround drug use in the contemporary United States. The book's final chapter assesses the usefulness of drugs in the quest for a mature, life-affirming, community-building, creative spirituality.

Cryoplanation Terraces (CTs) are erosional landforms reminiscent of giant staircases, with alternating shallow sloping treads and steep scarps leading to extensive flat summits. CTs are associated with periglacial (cold and unglaciated) environments and are typically found in elevated positions on ridges and hillslopes. Despite identification and discussion in geomorphic literature as early as the 1890s in the Urals, and the early 1900s in Alaska and the Yukon Territory, a consensus still has not been reached on the processes involved in CT formation. Two hypotheses continue to receive support from different factions of periglacial geomorphologists: (1) CTs are controlled primarily by geologic structure; and (2) CTs are dominantly controlled by climate through nivation -- the erosion process suite associated with late-lying snowbanks. This dissertation addresses some of the long-standing questions surrounding CT formation related to the time-transgressive nature of terrace treads, CT exposure ages, and long-term erosion rates associated with nivation processes. Explicit field testing was conducted on CTs throughout eastern Beringia, including the Seward Peninsula and the Yukon-Tanana Upland. Many prominent researchers have noted the proliferation of well-developed, relict CTs in unglaciated Beringia, which has experienced periglacial conditions throughout most of the Quaternary Period. Research questions are addressed in four interrelated, but self-contained chapters. Chapter 2 is a detailed review of CT terminology, formation hypotheses, and global distribution. A bibliometric analysis shows that no particular papers or authors have played "gatekeeping" functions that could explain the lack of explicit field testing over the last 50 years. Chapter 3 uses spatial statistics to examine differences in relative weathering indices and finds that treads at Skookum Pass, Eagle Summit, and Mt. Fairplay likely formed through scarp retreat. Chapter 4 is a geochronology study using 10Be and 36Cl terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides to determine exposure ages across treads near Eagle Summit and on Mt. Fairplay and to estimate erosion rates. Boulder exposure ages across these surfaces are synchronous with cold-climate intervals, suggesting climatic influence. Chapter 5 describes an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) survey conducted in an active nivation environment of northwestern British Columbia. In this "naturally controlled field experiment," long-term denudation rates for nivation since the Last Glacial Maximum on Frost Ridge were calculated from incipient terraces nearing the size and morphology of CTs in unglaciated Beringia. Chapter 2 effectively summarizes the history and current state of research on CTs, including an inventory of existing evidence for strong climatic influences on CT formation. Previous research has documented CT treads cutting across geologic structures, statistically preferred poleward orientations of scarps, and subcontinental-scale elevation trends closely match the position of paleosnowlines. Results from field investigations on relict CTs and in an active nivation environment, conducted as part of this dissertation, lend additional support to the proposition that climate controls CT formation through the mass balance of late-lying snowbanks. New data presented here, utilizing contemporary technologies, indicate that (1) CT treads are likely time-transgressive features, forming under scarp retreat; (2) boulder exposure is synchronous with local glaciations; and (3) long-term operation of nivation processes can produce landforms approaching the typical size of CTs.

Living in the Supernatural Madelyn Rodriguez describes in vivid details her experiences with dreams, visions, and revelations with God. The Stairways to Heaven will help identify where your revelations come from. It's a guide to understand the spiritual realm and its supernatural manifestations. We were created by God to have fellowship with Him, but because of Adam and Eve's sin, we have lost that privilege. Now God speaks to us through dreams, visions, and revelations to restore the broken fellowship. God revealed Himself in the Old Testament as the Father, in the New Testament the revelation was as the Son, and now in the dispensation of grace as the Holy Spirit. "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions" (Joel 2:28 NIV). You will learn how to: -Interpret dreams and visions; -Discern where your dreams and visions come from; and -Understand the spiritual realm and how to walk in the supernatural. The evangelist and prophetess Madelyn Rodriguez is one of the host and executive producers of the Spanish program, Guerreros de Dios [God's Warriors] where she talks about prophetic revelations and Christian international news. The program airs globally on Alerta TV International in the United States, Latin America, Caribbean, Europe, and Africa. She is also an on-air talent for the television station Telemundo 47 New York, CEO and Founder of The Stairways to Heaven Enterprise (www.TheStairwaysToHeaven.com).

Medieval stairs, galleries and upper chambers in cathedrals, abbeys, and parish churches have been an enduring source of fascination to historians and archaeologists since the eighteenth century, but their practical purposes have long been shrouded in mystery and speculation. From libraries to lights, clocks to dovecotes, from secret games of skittles played over the vaults to the daring exploits of the twelfth-century Flying Monk, Toby Huitson explores the lofty spaces, nooks and crannies of medieval upper spaces though the interrogation of a wide range of documentary, visual and archaeological materials. Evidence is revealed for over 30 different functions during the period from around AD 1000 to 1550. Generously illustrated and fully-referenced, the text is accompanied by a set of special features and a quick-reference section, making it indispensable to all those interested in medieval history and architecture. Dr Toby Huitson teaches at the University of Kent, Canterbury.

Did you hear about 17-year-old Kelsey Megliola? It happened early on a Sunday morning in July, 2013. One minute Kelsey was walking down a deserted country road in rural Michigan around 2 a.m., thinking her whole life was ahead of her. The next minute she lay dead in the highway, hit by a 19-year-old drunk driver. A neighbor said a party had taken place late Saturday night in the woods. Empty beer cans still littered the grass. Teenagers like Kelsey are being destroyed in record numbers. Street drugs Prescription drugs Alcoholism STDs Crime Deadly video games Cyber bullying Pornography Shootings Peer pressure AIDS The occult. They are all taking a heavy toll. And let's not forget teen killers like car crashes, accidents, and suicides. All of this destruction should not surprise us. Young people are being brainwashed by an evil world system and primed for ruin from a very young age. Sadly, by the time many parents discover there's a problem, it's often too late. THERE IS HOPE After working with troubled teens for over six years, Rick Jones learned the basic methods the devil's world system is using to wipe out teens by the millions. Because he saw so many teenage lives miraculously transformed, he felt compelled to record all the most important details of what brought about these transformations. In a compassionate, yet honest and straightforward way, this book "speaks their language," and grabs their attention and clearly show them the one and only way to escape the stairway to hell, and live a blessed and productive life. After they finish this short, easy-reading book, teens will look at life through different eyes, and have seriously changed attitudes. And best of all, they will know the real cause of their problems... and the solution too. With over 100,000 copies in print, many teens have been rescued after reading this timeless book. If you want to equip your teenagers for what they will face in this world, you must take action now. Give them a book that will equip them to sidestep all the land mines on the stairway to hell. You can be guaranteed they won't get this information in public school. And sadly, many who do go to church aren't getting it there either. Where else will they get this life-saving information, if not from you?

Anthropology and Theology is a stimulating exploration of the anthropology of theology, a new field of research that is still being shaped and defined. This follow up to Explorations in Anthropology and Theology includes contributions by theologians, most notably Mark Taylor. Together, the contributing anthropologists and theologians delve into the world of indigenous religious systems, treating them with the respect and attention that is usually given only to the major world religions. The topics covered include American secular rituals, feminist spirituality, the impact of modernization on traditional religions, alternative approaches to the sacred, and implications for field work. Most of the major ethnographic areas of the world are represented, including Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe, the Arctic, and the United States. This collection of works is indispensable as a source that addresses the relevance of theology and anthropology to one another. Recommended for various courses in theology, anthropology of religion, symbolic anthropology, and field work.
