This book is about Georgia newspapers, Georgia, and Georgians-and about how newspapers publishers, editors, writers, and readers in Georgia have changed since 1950. Ralph McGill and Eugene Patterson, the great Atlanta editors, are here, and so are Walter Garrett and Bo McLeod, editors and printers of small weeklies in South Georgia. Here are stories about Charlie Black of Columbus, one of the great reporters of the war in Vietnam; Milton Beckerman, who referred to black persons as “Mr.” and “Mrs.” in Georgia weeklies long before it was a common practice even in large dailies; and the short-lived Atlanta Times, which was financed by thousands of Georgia investors who wanted to launch a “conservative “ newspaper.

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.

Daughters of Jefferson, Daughters of Bootblacks is a constructive proposal in feminist ethics from a theological perspective. With empathy, Barbara Andolsen reveals the moral vulnerability of the woman’s movement from its early manifestations in suffrage campaigns to the contemporary feminist theologies of Mary Daly, Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza, and Rosemary Ruether. Professor Andolsen suggests ways that the shape of the women’s movement might be transformed if greater attention were offered to distinctive black feminist perspectives on such issues as rape, work, male/female solidarity, and beauty. She concludes that feminist theology must stress the integral interrelationship of sexism, racism, and economic exploitation.

On 14 June 1736 James Oglethorpe ordered Noble Jones to lay out the town of Augusta at the head of the Savannah River. It was Oglethorpe himself who recognized that Augusta would become the colony's link to the vast interior-"the key of all the Indian countrey." As this book reveals, Augusta and Georgia backcountry were critical components in the clash of empires that dominates the story of colonial Georgia.

The Crucifixion of the Jews: The Failure of Christians to Understand the Jewish Experience
By author: Frank H. Littell
Product Code: P031
ISBN: 9780865542273
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
“Prophetic in the sense that it warns of the consequences of the failure to acknowledge, repent of, and make restitution for sin, Littell’s book confronts Christendom with its massive betrayal of the Jewish people when the Holocaust came upon them and of its continuing unwillingness to admit betrayal. The multifarious anti-Semitism that led both to the Holocaust and to the churches’ response to it is traced to an ancient but persistent error in Christian thought: the flight from history—the tendency to speculate, ‘spiritualize,’ and systematize rather than to remember, recapitulate, reenact, and receive grace and truth from a real tradition of historical events….The healing and restorative potentialities of this book make it deserving of the widest possible circulation.” --Library Journal
