Um gleichzeitig die Unterschiedenhe­it und Einheit von Gott- und Menschheit in Christus auszudrücken, benutzte Nestorius die typische Formel der antiochenischen Schule: Jesus Christus ist der vom Logos angenommene Mensch, in dem dieser wie in einem Tempel wohnt. Er hielt aber fest an der ontologischen Einheit der Person Christi, und auch die nestorianischen Kirchen bekennen noch heute die Christologie des Nestorius, zusammengefasst in der Formel: „zwei Naturen, zwei Hypostasen, eine Person in Christus“ (vgl. ebd.: 748).…

The summary

A 16 years old boy, call Connor Durrell, must leave his home. Rebecca and Harry, two transporter of a Boot Camp which calls Lake Harmony, kidnap Connor. He must wear handcuffs. They are bound for a long time and the hands of Connor get numb. About 4 am. they arrive a building which looks like a prison. He can use the bathroom.

A man goes with him in a windowless room with a bed and two chairs. The man looks like a troll. He must stand for a while. Then a thin man come into the room and says he must strip or he must stand there for another 24 hours. He strips. The man gives him a green polo shirt, a blue jeans and green flip-flops. The troll and the thin man leave while he put on his new uniform.

One of the men says he can try to sleep. Connor is scared that he must stay in the “prison”. At the next morning he must stand up. A man with a black polo shirt twists his arm because Connor won’t get up. The man goes with him to the office of the direction. The director calls Mr. Z. He tells Connor that his rich parents pay much money that Connor will be well-bred. His parents think that his relationship with his past teacher Sabrina isn’t good.

She is ten years older then him. Connor thinks that  this isn’t a factor to send him in a Boot Camp. The director gives him a big pack of paper. He says that this is his bible. He must learn it very carefully. When he thinks he knows the rules by heart he must write a test about these rules. He will be guided into a clear classroom. He read the bible in forty minutes. In the bible he reads that he has to work one’s way up.

He is Level 1 and he can not leave the Boot Camp until he is Level 6. The man who guided him in the room can’t believe it and says unfriendly he must read it again. He reads it again and says that he is ready for the test. Connor writes the test and he detect that the answers are right because the facial expression of the man who corrects the test is clear but it isn’t positive, ‘cause the man is an unfriendly human.

The man makes a call and few minutes later another man comes into the room. They escort Connor back to the windowless room with the bed. One of them says that he can take a nap but he is wound up. For this reason he must sit on the bed and have to shut up. He thinks about his life and he remember that many people say that he is very intelligent. At the second morning he eat at a table with his new “family”.

The name of the family is “Dignity”. At the other tables sit other families. The called “Truth”, “Faith” and “Courtesy”.

At the next days he meets Joe. A “Father” of his family. Joe is a man who isn’t friendly. I think that he is there because he loves .....[read full text]

In Lake Harmony, Connor has lessons in math, communication or something else. The lesson in communication calls circle. There some students sitting in a circle and tell about they progress but when they say something wrong or they are cheek then Joe put this students down and the other students laughing about this student.

They laughing ‘cause sometimes Joe put them down too when they don’t laughing. But some students are laughing ‘cause they think that’s funny. That is the method to train the students. At best for Joe they are ashamed and they want to do better at next time.

Pauly and Sarah want to escape. They want that Connor come with them. But Connor says no. But bit by bit he is agreed because they say that Sarah has an Aunt in Canada.

Sarah, Pauly and Connor spark a fire with flavour dust in the kitchen. They pack a sack with rolls and they press the alarm button for the fire fighters. When the cars from the fire fighters pass the door they sprint in the wood. Someone see them and run after them. They hide from this person and Sarah fall down and hurt at her foot.

But they can escape. They sleep at the ground. At the next days they have the idea to eat at night from waste from a restaurant. They have the idea that Sarah stops a car and when the river stops Pauly and Connor come out from them hide-out. It works so they drive a big part near to Canada. They tell that they are from Lake Harmony and the driver tells that he has a friend in this Boot Camp.

They pass a filling station. There the driver asks if they want something. When the driver is in the house and pay the friends think about if he phones his friend and tell on them to his friend. If they are correct they never know ‘cause they run out of the car and they hide.

They do the stop action again and a driver stops again. Sometime they must use a toilette and they stops but at the stop point they see the transporter Rebecca and Harry. They must run away again. They arrive the Canadian barrier. They must only cross a river. But Rebecca and Harry see them so they sprint to a boat and di.....

Her forehead is furrowed with concern. I can smell he perfume. “Are you all right?”  “Uh, yes, ma’am.” She scowls a bit doubtfully. “ Connor, are you sure you’re all right?” “Yes ma’am. Uh, what are you doing here, ma’am?” She pulls me close and hugs me hard. It’s a little strange because of the no touch rule. Being so close Level Five, I sure don’t want to get in any trouble now.

Meanwhile, her lips come close to my ear as she whispers, “You don’t have to call me ma’am. I’m here to take you out of this place. You can tell me the truth, Connor. I know what’s been going on.” She backs away slightly, but doesn’t let go. Now my father, and the man in the top coat and the woman join us. Behind them is Mr Z. Only now I realize that the woman is Rebecca.

She takes my hand in hers. “I found your parents,” she says. “I told them what you did. How you saved our lives.” “At first we weren’t sure whether to believe it,” my father says. “But then we heard from a young woman in Canada. Someone named Sarah.” “Where you hit, or beaten, or kicked or injured at any time by a staff member?” the man in the top coat asks.

I hesitate when Mr Z catches my eye and narrows his in warning. “They said you were beaten, Connor,” my father says. “Is that true?” Mr Z glares at me and shakes his head. My mother sees this. “You can tell us the truth, Connor,” she pleads. “Don’t pay any attention to that man. It doesn’t matter now. We’re taking you home.” “Were you hit, or beaten, or kicked or injured at any time by a staff member?” the man in the top coat asks again.

Mr Z’s eyes narrow with furious warning. I’m afraid. “Just tell us the truth, Connor,” my father urges. “Did they hurt you?” “I…I…Yes, sir, they did. But-“ “But what?” my father asks. “But… I deserved it, sir......

Sarah Shafer

Sarah is a 17 years old girl who is very quiet but really friendly. She is for a long time at Lake Harmony and that is only because her father is a Priest and she isn’t the same religious opinion like her father. Sarah hurts herself.

Pauly Vetare

Pauly is a 15 years old, blond, thin and frail boy. He is in Lake Harmony because his father wants another human. He wants a strong and courageous boy but the versions to train the students of the Boot Camp don’t help. He is still Level 1. Pauly is clever and think about his actions.

My own opinion

I think the book is a great book, ‘cause for some people it opens their eyes. In the epilogue the author tells about some Boot Camp in the USA. That means, the Boot Camp isn’t a dream. Their some people beat the students and put they down. I think the book tells the truth. I think that the end is very sad because later Connor isn’t himself! The director and Joe won.

I read some other books from Morton Rhue and I think he is a great author because he writes his books in a good way so you can understand them easily. The books tell the truth and later you can say that this was a very har.....
