  • Crossing Baptist Boundaries: A Festschrift in Honor of William Henry Brackney
    Edited by: Erich Geldbach
    This collection of essays is dedicated to William Henry Brackney, one of the leading Baptist historians in North America for the past four decades. Few, if any, Baptist historians of any era have written more extensively, more broadly, or more insightfully on the Baptist people in North America than Brackney. Contributors include: Clinton Bennett, Chris Chun, Keith Clements, Charles W. Deweese, Paul Fiddes, Stanley K. Fowler, Erich Geldbach, Larry Kreitzer, James Stanley Lemons, Thorwald Lorenzen, Roger H. Prentice, John D. Roth, Horace O. Russell, John Shouse, Walter B. Shurden, and Andrea Strübind.
  • Symbol and Existence: A Study in Meaning: Explorations of Human Nature
    SYMBOL AND EXISTENCE will prove fascinating to Walker Percy scholars and fans who wish to decipher Percy’s authentic philosophical stance. Percy, an existentialist Catholic at his core, was also a scientist seeking an objective paradigm to portray his views. SYMBOL AND EXISTENCE demonstrates that Percy was quite methodical and logical in his thought and provides an entirely new perspective on his scholarship. Much of this book is unique and has never been published before; however, some sections were revised and published as isolated journal articles or book chapters, never presented as the unified whole that Percy intended. The orderly unity of Percy’s work has not previously been accessible to scholars and fans.
  • Bartram's Living Legacy: The Travels and the Nature of the South
    In this unique anthology, for the first time Bartram's Travels is joined with essays acknowledging the debt Southern nature writers owe the man called the “South’s Thoreau.” We hope this book will introduce a new generation of environmentally minded Southerners to Bartram’s timeless work, not only standing on its own but also interpreted through passionate, personal essays by some of the region’s finest nature writers. Rather than wallowing in nostalgia for the long-gone world Bartram describes, this anthology provides us with a starting point for reconstructing and reclaiming the natural heritage of the South.
