  • Sudden Death: A Novel
    SUDDEN DEATH is a murder mystery set in the world of football. More than a whodunit, the novel spans roughly thirty years from 1966 to 1997 in the life of one couple, Duke and Kendall Astin. But when the murder occurs, the story becomes a search for joy and goodness in life, and ultimately the triumph of the human spirit over unspeakable odds. Written by a woman who has spent her entire life married to a football player and coach, SUDDEN DEATH also explores serious themes of sports gambling, alcoholism, and spousal abuse within the varied cast of characters.

  • Baptists in Early North America–Middletown Baptist Church, New Jersey, Volume VIII
    Middletown Baptist Church in Monmouth County ("Old First Church" since 1963) is the oldest Baptist congregation in New Jersey and one of the constituting churches of the Philadelphia Baptist Association in 1707. Church meeting minutes, membership rolls, congregational correspondence, and personal letters cover the period 1712 to 1811. The earliest years after the church's founding in 1688 are largely unknown due to discord and subsequent excision of records. Records for the years 1741 to 1785 are incomplete, but transcribed entries from "Elder Mott's Journal" provide a first-hand account of the church's life during that period.
  • James Dickey: A Literary Life
    By author: Gordon Van Ness
    This literary biography centers on Dickey as poet, novelist, essayist, critic, and teacher, a man who throughout his life did what writers are supposed to do, write. Dickey spent time teaching and discussing writing, which is also part of the profession of authorship. Here, Van Ness shows Dickey's artistic beginnings and the rise and fall of his career, the man as a writer. Dickey's life was indeed complicated, but his words endure, and they merit the highest attention.
