Découvrez la nouvelle thématique de Ce que dit la Bible sur... : l'eau, un élément fragile et pur comme la foi !
Du passage des Hébreux à travers la mer Rouge, l'aventure de Jonas jeté à la mer, à Jésus marchant sur les eaux du lac de Tibériade, cet élément joue un rôle de premier plan dans l'interprétation des signes de l'action de Dieu. Violente et incontrôlable comme au Déluge , la mer est le lieu de forces obscures pour la mythologie antique. Mais elle devient aussi source de purification puis de sacrement par l'eau qui jaillit du côté du Christ à sa mort.
Ce que dit la Bible sur l'eau nous offre le regard que la Bible nous transmet sur cet élément vital et aujourd'hui menacé de pénurie sur notre planète ?
Cet ouvrage est empli de spiritualité et invite son lecteur à ne pas oublier que la Bible parle avant tout d'hommes réels !
The fully-revised second edition of the bestselling textbook-an original interpretation of the entire span of California history The rich history of California can best be told through its connection with the Pacific Basin. From the geological origins of the land and its earliest seafaring inhabitants, to current economic trade relationships and remarkably diverse cultural influences, the factors that continue to shape the Golden State are inseparably linked to the vast ocean to its west. Pacific Eldorado is a comprehensive exploration of the entire sweep of California's past in relation to the maritime world of the Pacific Basin. Offering a bold and original interpretation of the history of the region, prominent historian Thomas J. Osborne enables readers to view the state's development through a Pacific-focused lens. Now in its second edition, this acclaimed textbook reflects new scholarship, places greater emphasis on environmental topics, and examines recent California history. Designed to help students think critically about commonly-held ideas, the author challenges conventional views, such as those of pre-Gold Rush California, confronts the traditional Atlantic-centric approach to American history, and presents a new analytic framework for studying the state's past. The text enables students to understand the evolution of California, from the time of prehistoric Asian seafarers to the state's present-day position as the nation's wealthiest and most populous state. Rigorous yet accessible, this text: Explores a "Greater California" history that extends beyond geographic borders Offers new, expanded, and revised coverage of plate tectonics, the citriculture boom of the late 1800s, the environmental history of California, and more Features "Pacific Profiles," brief chronicles of notable figures who have made an impact on the state's history Has a new feature, "Transpacific Connections" that illustrates further the fascinating ties between California and the Pacific World; for example, comparing the California gold rush to the contemporaneous New Zealand gold rush and indicating the connections between the two Supports a Pacific-centric approach with compelling examples, such as the building of the transcontinental railroad to increase the China trade Includes new and updated photographs, illustrations, maps, references, and reading suggestions Already adopted by a wide range of institutions, the new edition of Pacific Eldorado: A History of Greater California continues to be an essential resource for students and instructors in California history courses, as well as those required to pass exams on California history and government to obtain California teaching credentials.
