Mit LP-Diskographien und zahlreichen Schwarzweißfotos. The pivotal decade before Beatlemania has often been unfairly overshadowed. Casual observers will note that it was the age of the Wurlitzer juke box, beautiful convertible cars, smart suits and pretty frocks. It was also the decade of rock ´n´ roll; Bill Haley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, the Platters, Fata Domino, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and of course the icon himself, Elvis Presley. Of vital importance to the shaping of 50s pop are vocalists such as Perry Como, Guy Mitchell, Frankie Laine, Johnnie Ray, Dean Martin and the female stars Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Rosematy Clooney, Kay Starr and Teresa Brewer. The single most influential artist of 50s popular music was Frank Sinatra, who in tun spawned a host of imitators both good and bad. While Britain had to wait until the 60s to assert itself as a major force, it did produce Tommy Steele, Marty Wilde, Cliff Richard, Dickie Valentine, Dennis Lotis, Ted Heath, Ronnie Hilton, Lonnie Donegan, Petula Clark, Ruby Murray, Lita Roza, Joan Regan and the highly underrated Alma Cogan. Stage musicals were having a golden age with The Pajama Game, The King And 1, My Fair Lady and West Side Story all producing memorable hits. This volume, from the publishers of The Guinness Encyclopedia Of Popular Music, goes a long way to demonstrate the importance of the years that truly positioned ´pop´ for the decade that was to follow. Fully illustrated, with an introduction written by 50s pop expert John Martland, this book includes contributions from Brian Hogg, Jeff Tamarkin, Robert Pruter, Bruce Crowther, Johnny Rogan, Colin Larkin, Peter Doggett, Man Clayson, Arthur Jackson, Mitch.Solomons, Lionel Robinson, Spencer Leigh, Dave Laing, Neil Slaven and Dave McAleer
We live in dark times. Christians wonder: Are the best days of the Christian faith behind us? Has modernity made Christian thought irrelevant and impotent? Is society beyond all hope of redemption and renewal? In Renaissance, Os Guinness declares no. Throughout history, the Christian faith has transformed entire cultures and civilizations, building cathedrals and universities, proclaiming God´s goodness, beauty and truth through art and literature, science, and medicine. The Christian faith may similarly change the world again today. The church can be revived to become a renewing power in our society - if we answer the call to a new Christian renaissance that challenges darkness with the hope of Christian faith. In this hopeful appeal for cultural transformation, Guinness shares opportunities for Christians, on both local and global levels, to win back the West and to contribute constructively to the human future. Hearkening back to similar pivotal points in history, Guinness encourages Christians in the quest for societal change. Each chapter closes with thought-provoking discussion questions and a brief, heart-felt prayer that challenges and motivates us to take action in our lives today. 1. Language: English.

The church in the West is at a critical moment. While the Gospel is exploding throughout the global South, Western civilization faces militant assaults from aggressive secularism and radical Islam. Will the church resist the seductive shaping power of advanced modernity? More than ever Christians must resist the negative cultural forces of our day with fortitude and winsomeness. What is needed is followers of Christ who are willing to face reality without flinching and respond with a faithfulness that is unwavering. Os Guinness describes these Christians as ´´impossible people´´, those who have ´´hearts that can melt with compassion but with faces like flint and backbones of steel who are unmanipulable, unbribable, undeterrable, and unclubbable, without ever losing the gentleness, the mercy, the grace, and the compassion of our Lord´´. Few accounts of the challenge of today are more realistic, and few calls to Christian courage are more timely, resolute, and hopeful. Guinness argues that we must engage secularism and atheism in new ways, confronting competing ideas with discernment and fresh articulation of the faith. Christians are called to be impossible people serving an impossible God. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Derek Perkins.

He played Oscar Blaketon in 18 series of the still hugely popular Heartbeat series. With his heart resting easily on his sleeve, Derek talks candidly about his personal life, his adoring mother and sister, his two wives, his many lovers and his one true love.

Wir hatten keine Zeit uns zu beeilen Mit dem Traktor durch Südwesteuropa Dieter und Barbara sind unterwegs auf einer Guinness Weltrekord-verdächtigen Tour: 17.000km - 6 Monate - durch 17 Länder Europas - mit einem 25 Jahre alten Traktor tschechischer Produktion und einem angehängten Bauwagen... Mit dem Erfolg ihres ersten Buches ist ihre Reise noch lange nicht zu Ende... Aus dem Inhalt: Der Traktor ist fast so alt wie ihre Idee, Europa ohne große Eile zu erkunden. Und doch dauert es über 20 Jahre, bis Dieter Ochs einen ausgedienten Trecker ersteht, ihn restauriert und sie sich die Zeit nehmen, mit einer Höchstgeschwindigkeit von 27 km/h, Europa vom Eismeer bis zur Côte d Azur zu bereisen. Zurück vom Nordkap durchqueren sie Europa von Ost nach West, erkunden unsere Nachbarländer mit einem Wohnwagengespann, das selbst Holländer verblüfft, gelangen durch Belgien nach Frankreich und nähern sich langsam aber beharrlich dem Mittelmeer. Während der Ackerschlepper sich in Europas Süden tapfer schlägt, ist es diesmal der Mensch, der an seine Grenzen stößt - und die Gesundheit, die droht das große Abenteuer scheitern zu lassen. Doch die dringend benötigte Rettung ist nur ein paar Alpenpässe entfernt...
