In 1979, a Kekchi Maya Indian accidentally discovered the entrance to Naj Tunich, a deep cave in the Maya Mountains of El Peten, Guatemala. One of the world's few deep caves that contain rock art, Naj Tunich features figural images and hieroglyphic inscriptions that have helped to revolutionize our understanding of ancient Maya art and ritual. In this book, Andrea Stone takes a comprehensive look at Maya cave painting from Preconquest times to the Colonial period. After surveying Mesoamerican cave and rock painting sites and discussing all twenty-five known painted caves in the Maya area, she focuses extensively on Naj Tunich. Her text analyzes the images and inscriptions, while photographs and line drawings provide a complete visual catalog of the cave art, some of which has been subsequently destroyed by vandals. This important new body of images and texts enlarges our understanding of the Maya view of sacred landscape and the role of caves in ritual. It will be important reading for all students of the Maya, as well as for others interested in cave art and in human relationships with the natural environment.

This book explains in great detail and exceptional clarity the issues related to the Rapture of the Church, the government of the Antichrist, the "Great Tribulation," and all the apocalyptic judgments that God will pour out upon the world in the latter days. The Rapture of the Church will bring about the global collapse of the economic, political, and religious institutions around the world. Humanity will look for a leader who can put the world back together, offer them peace and security. So by popular acclamation, the world will host a false prince of peace the Bible calls the Antichrist. He will elate the masses by telling them what they want to hear. The Antichrist will push humanity to the deepest levels of degradation, vice, immorality, crime, war, violence, and rebellion against God. He will corrupt the social and moral order, and as a result, billions of people will die. He will plunge the world into spiritual darkness and lead humanity astray. We cannot begin to imagine the horror and the endless suffering humanity will experience through the chaos wrought by the Antichrist. The Bible says that the Antichrist's empire "shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces" (Daniel 7:23). In reference to this dreadful period of human suffering, the Lord Jesus said, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall" (Matthew 24:21). This will be a period characterized by widespread wars, which will bring death to billions of people. During this period, 25 and 33 percent of the world population will die in two major wars. If these two conflicts were to take place in our time, 3.56 billion of the world population would die.

Physical landscapes are one of the most fascinating facets of our Planet, which tell stories about the evolution of the surface of the Earth. This book provides up-to-date information about the geomorphology of the selected ‘classic’ sites from around the world and shows the variety of geomorphological landscapes as moulded by different sets of processes acting over different timescales, from millions of years to days. The volume is written by nearly fifty geomorphologists from more than twenty countries who for many years have researched some of the unique sceneries on the planet. The thirty six chapters present each continent of the world. They describe landscapes of different origin, so that the reader can learn about the complexity of processes behind the sceneries. This is a useful reference book, linking geomorphology with global initiatives focused on nature conservation.
