Availability: In stock
Price: $29.00
Though far from the major theaters of battle, Floridians experienced every facet of the Civil War. While most Florida soldiers fought for the Confederacy, many Floridians, including former slaves, enlisted with the Union. Families were divided and partisanship tore communities apart. Some Floridians produced salt, beef, and supplies for the Confederacy; others profited during Union occupations. The one notable battle fought in Florida, the Battle of Olustee, was disproportionately bloody. FLORIDA'S CIVIL WAR is a true tale of survival, ingenuity, and opportunism.

Francis Johnson and the English Separatist Influence
By author: K Scott Culpepper
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P426
ISBN: 9780881462388
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Francis Johnson and the English Separatist Influence is the first thorough treatment of Francis Johnson as the central focus of an academic work. Francis Johnson’s quest to create a perfectly ordered, scriptural, Christian congregation led him to fiery debates with the most influential leaders of his day. A curious mix of the noble and ignoble, Francis Johnson was a man of contradictions. Johnson’s own journey from radical Puritan to fervent Separatists, and finally rediscovery of the importance of reconnecting with the larger Christian tradition is one that vitally speaks to our current pluralistic context.

The last written history of the Augusta, Georgia, Judicial Circuit was in 1890. Wade Padgett has expanded upon that history and examines the judicial history of the state of Georgia from its inception as a Royal Colony through the 2016 elections. However, this work is not a dry recitation of judicial history in Georgia but is brought to life by focusing on the men and women who have served in various judicial positions within the Circuit. Special attention has been devoted to genealogical facts of each of the office-holders. Included is an architectural history of the courthouses of Richmond, Columbia, and Burke counties in Georgia. Filled with facts and stories unique to Augusta, the book is also rich in colonial history.

Between 1788 and 1834 black Baptists formed their first distinctively black congregations and organized regional associations. By 1831, when an enslaved Baptist preacher named Nat Turner inspired an insurrection against slaveholders in Virginia, black Baptist had acquired “a peculiar and precarious religious freedom.” Turner’s rebellion and the black Baptist role in ending slavery in Jamaica brought restrictions on the movements of black preachers, but black Baptists continued to preach and to claim the freedom to worship as communities of believers.

George Liele's Life and Legacy: An Unsung Hero
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H853
ISBN: 9780881463897
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Writers of church and mission history have devoted very few pages to George Liele’s ministry and most mentions ignore the global nature of his pioneer work, international influence, intelligence, and legacy. He launched a mission movement that reached from Georgia to Jamaica and from Jamaica to Sierra Leone and Nova Scotia—all before the pioneer work of William Carey, Adoniram Judson, Richard Allen, and Lott Cary. Beginning as a slave preacher, Liele learned the Baptist story and theology—a message he preached in South Carolina, Georgia, and Jamaica. In providing a comprehensive introduction to Liele’s life and work, this book draws readers into identifying with Liele and those who lived through a difficult historic period and who in the process developed a theology that guided them through the challenges of being a Christian leader in a slave society.
