A search for the Beast, a Yeti-like creature within the heart of the Amazon, becomes a quest for self-discovery in this young adult coming-of-age story filled with international adventure, rich mythology, and magical realism from globally celebrated novelist Isabel Allende. Fifteen-year-old Alexander Cold has the chance to take the trip of a lifetime. Parting from his family and ill mother, Alexander joins his fearless grandmother, a magazine reporter for International Geographic, on an expedition to the dangerous, remote world of the Amazon. Their mission, along with the others on their team—including a celebrated anthropologist, a local guide and his young daughter Nadia, and a doctor—is to document the legendary Yeti of the Amazon known as the Beast. Under the dense canopy of the jungle, Alexander is amazed to discover much more than he could have imagined about the hidden worlds of the rain forest. Drawing on the strength of the jaguar, the totemic animal Alexander finds within himself, and the eagle, Nadia's spirit guide, both young people are led by the invisible People of the Mist on a thrilling and unforgettable journey to the ultimate discovery.

All-new stories about the urban worlds where animals and humans fight, love, and find common ground, from the nationally bestselling author of Cod and Salt.

From baseball players in the Dominican Republic to Basque separatists in Spain to a restaurant owner in Cuba, from urban coyotes to a murder of crows, Kurlansky travels the worlds of animals and their human counterparts, revealing moving and hilarious truths about our connected existence. In the end, he illuminates how closely our worlds are aligned, how humans really are beasts, susceptible to their basest instincts, their wildest dreams, and their artful survival.

I offer you a fresh and inspired non-fiction book and Bible study guide to the “Book of Revelation / Apocalypse”. This book will take you on a spiritual journey of understanding based on Jesus’ words in the Bible that is different from traditional interpretations of this end-time prophecy. It provides an excellent way to engage with God’s word to seek the truth. This book is based on the idea that Jesus has provided the information in the Gospels that would unlock the mysteries of Revelation. Mat 24:33-34 33 so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. 34 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. God gave us Revelation to show his followers “the things which must shortly take place”. Why shortly? Revelation is addressed to the end-times generation and it is only then that the revelation is to become fully revealed. Now is the time. As I guide you on this journey, I will show you the keys that will transform Revelation into an easily understood message from God. Amazingly, one key is that Revelation was written out of chronological order at God’s direction to seal it up until the end-times. This Revelation guide is filled with ideas and concepts that will keep your Bible study group engaged in “Spirited” discussion. In Chapter 9, "Are We the End-Time Generation?” I describe where we might be in biblical prophecy based on the reordered Revelation. I believe that the end-times have begun and that the baby boomer generation will see the end of it all. This makes understanding Revelation all the more important.

Jione Havea analyses the Book of Jonah through the lens of climate change, using this present situation to reconsider the significance of Jonah for contemporary struggles and contexts, and tapping into traditional practices of commentary to draw out the meaning of the biblical text. Havea takes Jonah 3:10 as a starting point, in which God repents and rethinks (decides not to destroy), taking this as a challenge and an opportunity for biblical scholars to reflect on the realities of climate change. Havea builds on this opportunity in two ways: first, by reading Jonah forward, giving special attention to the orientation of the narrative toward the sea and Nineveh, and then backward, highlighting the significance of sea and (is)land lives to the flow of the narrative. Second, by looking at the other figures in the narrative, rather than focusing on the narrator's obsession with Jonah and his God. Havea reminds readers that the fish, plant, worm and other beasts are also crucial in this narrative, and considers how this can change our reading of the text.
