The work of the Glasgow Media Group has long established their place at the forefront of Media Studies, and Getting the Message provides an ideal introduction to recent work by the Group. Contributors discuss themes such as the relationship between the media and public opinion, the emergence of TV news formats and styles, and the relations between theory and method in media research. Recent work undertaken by the Group on the media's role in reporting on AIDS, Vietnam, Northern Ireland and the Gulf War is also represented. In its fresh approach to the relationship between journalists and their sources and occupation analysis, the collection also illuminates how the earlier work of the group has been extended, and the ways in which its research has developed both individually and collectively. Getting the Message offers an invaluable and far-reaching exploration of the inter-relations between the production of media messages and their reception - an invaluable guide for any study of the development of media theory.

Of all who have read or heard these words from The Message, the second book in the "Messenger Series" of Red Path novels, nine in ten have experienced a tremendous personal change in their lives one that has been very meaningful and that has caused them to see how alone they had been prior to hearing the message contained within this novel. However, once this change reached completion for them and they arrived on the other side, they found they were alone no longer. They allowed a new part of themselves to be born, but only after allowing the old part to die and fall away. If you are not ready to experience such a change in your life, do not buy or read this book. If you are ready, then read well and know that all things are as they should be. And soon you will understand and begin to see yourself as one within one. "As you come to understand more that is within your life path, you will come to see yourself more clearly for who and what you are in truth." -Patrick "Speaking Wind" Quirk.
The definitive guide to the meaning of today’s most popular praise and worship songs. Few things influence Christians’ understanding of the faith more than the songs they sing in worship. The explosion of praise and worship music in the last fifteen years has profoundly affected our experience of God. So what are those songs telling us about who God is? In what ways have they made us more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ? In what ways have they failed to embody the full message of the gospel? Working with the lists of the most frequently sung praise and worship songs from recent years, the authors of this book offer an objective but supportive assessment of the meaning and contribution of the Christian music that has been so important in the lives of contemporary believers.
A Survey of the Prophetic and Apocalyptic Books of the Old Testament
Author: J. Daniel Hays
Pubpsher: Zondervan Academic
Christians sometimes approach the Old Testament with a mixture of awe and bewilderment, knowing that it contains pearls of wisdom, but unsure how to dive for them ... especially when it comes to the Prophets. In The Message of the Prophets, author J. Daniel Hays offers a scholarly, yet readable and student-friendly survey of the Old Testament prophetic literature that presents the message of each prophet in its historical and its biblical context and then tracks that message through the New Testament to challenge readers with what it means for them today. Hays focuses on synthesizing the message of the prophets, which enables students to grasp the major contours of the prophetic books clearly and concisely. Hundreds of colorful pictures help to illustrate the historical and cultural background of the prophets. After identifying what the message meant for ancient Israel, Hays helps the readers to move toward theological application today, helping readers to gain a better understanding of God and the relationship between God and his people. The Message of the Prophets is essential for professors, students, and others seeking to understand the role that the OT prophets play in the Christian faith.
As remarkable as it may sound this book is the result of divine intervention and inspiration. It is an account of the circumstances surrounding the receipt of a message given to mankind and intended to explain the nature of existence and to provide some insight into the nature of God, as best as we can understand it. It is a message that was intended specifically for you and regardless of your belief system I think you will find it extraordinary, enlightening, and inspirational. The receipt of this message has had a very dramatic impact on me and it is my joy to share it with you. Every word of this account is relayed to you as it was spoken without fictionalization of any kind. It is presented to you as it occurred and as it was recorded on audio tape. A small portion is also on video tape.
