START TALKING LIKE A JAMAICAN TODAY. Love Jamaican reggae music and our expressive language? Love a great laugh too? This is the right book for you. As reggae/dancehall music has become very dominant in our culture, artists and their youthful followers continue to play a huge role in the development of our language, known as patois, as they are constantly coining words and phrases that baffle even older Jamaicans and certainly foreigners. Also as people worldwide swing to our music and tales about our scenic country with its numerous natural attractions continue to seduce everyone who hears about it thus becoming a well -known and greatly sought after tourism destination in the Caribbean, since most Jamaicans do not automatically speak English but only when required, this dictionary is critical to travellers as well music lovers. For you never know when your dream will come through and you not only have the pleasure of rocking to our music but also get the opportunity to visit us. This is 6th edition of the Dictionary, a publication which since 1993, has been doing an invaluable job in helping the world understand our language and the cartoons not only assist in the translation but also they add to the hilarity of the publication. Our Dictionary therefore will satisfy all your needs in a most humorous way. Yea mon. No problem mon. Irie. Just think how much more you will enjoy the pulsating beat of reggae/dancehall music and a visit to our seductive island if you could understand what we are saying or singing about! However, to understand our language or even speak like a Jamaican, you do not have to study complicated pronunciation rules like for English, as everything you see is pronounced phonetically. Yeah mon. So start your lesson in the Jamaican language today. Lesson 1. If an artist at a stage show is giving a great performance, what do you shout most exuberantly" Hat it up yes" and when the performance is lousy make sure you shout "Pack Up and park." Thirsty? You need to "beat sum juice" and if your partner eats everything in sight? That makes him " Nyami nyami." When you cannot understand what is being said if you do not indicate that you have a problem "overstanding: " you will continue to be left in the dark! Need to feel irie? A Bob Marley is a large marijuana/ganja cigarette/ spliff. So named as the great reggae artist's most famous poster has him holding the huge sample. And to make it easy for you to follow the logic of the language, the little cigarette/spliff is called a Ziggy after Bob's eldest son...little Bob! Oh the joys of the Jamaican language. Right Mi Pree? Wi flex good. So much to learn, so little time. So kick back and enjoy learning one of the most useful, beautiful and expressive languages in the world.
From the author of the "My Bipolar Mind" series, Lucius M. Johnson, Sr., comes his newest book, "My Mind's on a Swing," a completely new series of poems that are meant to inspire.
In the book God, Choices and Guidance: A Theology for a Modern Civilization, Rev. Rick L. Samples examines how the church of the past and the spiritual movement of present day clash. Through his poignant real life stories, Rev. Samples discusses different religious beliefs and concepts that help guide the reader to a new understanding of God's interactions within our world. Through his experience as a medical chaplain, Rev. Samples brings the reader into the world of his chronically and terminally ill patients. These interactions help the reader understand how and why life can suddenly spin out of control and how God can help them through difficult times. Rev. Samples, through his conversational style of writing, offers a simple way to connect with God for those who feel that they no longer have a place to turn for help. Rev. Samples presents thought-provoking new ways to develop and deepen a personal relationship with the Divine for non-believers and believers alike. The book introduces a spiritual guide to God for those who have lost faith in formal religion.
Finally, a process theology book that is both thoughtful and practical. God Choices and Guidance: A Theology for a Modern Civilization is written in a manner that makes it accessible to everyone, not just theologians.
I love how Rev. Samples uses stories from his own ministry to illustrate complex concepts. The book draws a post -modern map that connects the 21st century individual to the eternal divine. This book has helped me in my practice of chaplaincy by giving me a new "handle" in which to hold the suffering I witness everyday.
