90% of our lives are determined by our fate, and our fates are determined by our 'souls.' But every now and then, something goes wrong and the souls of those who have met an untimely fate also pollute their environs, drawing more souls into a vicious circle of ill fate. Sakurai and Amano are an odd-couple team who have been hired to deal with the problems that arise from these tainted souls and have been tasked with finding those who are heading to an early grave to either prevent them from dying or collect their livingstones before they do further damage.

Die natürliche Genese von Steinen eignet sich besonders als Produktionsparadigma mimetischer Kunst, wie etwa Fels- und Korallenformen oder Marmoräderungen als Ausprägungen der natürlichen Gestaltkräfte zeigen. Künstlerische Materialien vermitteln zwischen Idee und Ausführung und prägen den Werkprozess. Die Formung des Materials legt Bedeutungsebenen des Werkes ebenso frei, wie die spezifische Form eines Materials Möglichkeiten der Bedeutungsgenerierung bietet. Die Nachahmung natürlicher Materialien ist weitaus mehr als ein Materialersatz oder das Herausstellen eigener künstlerischer Fertigkeiten. Die Beiträge in diesem Buch beleuchten die Imitation des Naturmaterials Stein als künstlerisches Vermögen, das Wechselspiel von natürlichen und artifiziellen Materialqualitäten zu gestalten.

David Livingstone has gone down in history as a fearless explorer and missionary, hacking his way through the forests of Africa to bring light to the people - and also to free them from slavery. But who was he, and what was he actually like? "He was an extraordinary character- according to biographer Stephen Tomkins -spectacularly bad at personal relationships, at least with white people, possessed of infinite self-belief, courage, and restlessness. He was an almost total failure as a missionary, and so became an explorer and campaigner against the slave trade, hoping to save African lives and souls that way instead. He helped, however unwittingly, to set the tone and the extent of British involvement in Africa. He was a flawed but indomitable idealist." Fascinating new evidence about Livingstone's life and his struggles have come to light in the letters and journals he left behind, now accessible to us for the first time through spectral imaging. These form a significant addition to the source material for this excellent biography, which provides an honest and balanced account of the real man behind the Victorian icon.

In this personal reflection of her faithful journey, Author, Ruth Eppler Wills writes, "As I have read of the many stones in the biblical narrative, I began to see a connection in the progression of their use in the Bible with the progression of the spiritual growth points of my life.'Becoming a Living Stone' is a process at work in both biblical and personal areas. It is my hope that you, the reader, may see more clearly where God is working in your life and encourage you to keep moving forward in spite of the difficulties you face day to day."
