Father Mercer tells the story of the life and labors of Jesse Mercer, a leader in Georgia Baptist life during the first half of the nineteenth century. Yet, rather than telling the story of a larger-than-life pastor with whom few “ordinary” pastors can identify, the books reveals how one who is faithful in small things can, over time, bear much fruit for the Lord.

These essays address the relationship of faith and learning at a Baptist institution and come from scholars in a wide variety of fields: theology, law, literature, political science, education, and philosophy.

“The ball was round, the equipment was homemade, and the rules were uncertain, but that game the boys were playing on the lawn at Mercer University in 1892 was football.” Thus begins this colorful history of football at Mercer University. This volume describes in sharp and clear detail the history and evolution of college football as played by the Mercer University team from 1892–1942. After a seventy-year hiatus, the Mercer Bears will once again take the field in the fall of 2013.

In a world composed of almost seven billion people, about 2.2 billion of them claim to be Christian. And while Christianity is continuing to grow at a modest rate, other religions are growing at a faster pace. Some scholars predict that Islam will overtake Christianity as the world’s largest religion by the middle of the twenty-first century. Predictions aside, religions are competing for the world stage, and in the competition, Christians seem certain that God is on their side. Christians often think and behave as though God is a Christian. This book is written to ask if that assumption is true and to foster a more open conversation about other world religions. The world has grown too small and the stakes for mankind have grown too high for any of us to engage our faith as if our understanding of God represents the only way God’s presence may be known in the world.
