The Concept of Anxiety in Søren Kierkegaard

Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H769
ISBN: 9780881461268
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
From the preface: “The Concept of Anxiety is one of Kierkegaard’s major works. It summarizes and anticipates themes that are developed in his other works, but not by presenting a unified perception. It has more the character of a work that constitutes a turning point: themes from earlier works (in particular Either/Or) are pursued in a broken way that gives a new starting point for later works. Even though The Concept of Anxiety is often an unreasonably difficult book, it is worthwhile to read as a gateway to the entire works of Kierkegaard.

International Kierkegaard Commentary Volume 24: The Book on Adler
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H770
ISBN: 9780881461275
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $50.00
The Book on Adler is Kierkegaard’s most revised manuscript, his longest unpublished book, and the book of which he left the most drafts. When he decided not to publish the book, he pulled a chapter (“The Difference between a Genius and an Apostle”) and published it in Two Ethical-Religious Essays (1849). All this rowing and backwatering show the complexity of his personal involvement in this book and concern for the person of Adler.

Nurtured in a Tennessee Baptist home, the grandson of a pioneer Baptist preacher and church starter, William Whitsitt grew up knowing and admiring the principle leaders of Landmarkism (Graves, Pendleton, and Dayton). His Civil War experiences and studies at the University of Virginia, Southern Seminary, Berlin, and Leipzig brought him to broader views and the historical-critical approach to historical and biblical studies, placing him at odds with narrow denominationalism and the popular myth of an unbroken succession of Baptist churches all the way back to the New Testament.

The Cost of Unity: African American Agency and Education in the Christian Church, 1865-1914

Product Code: H775
ISBN: 9780881461343
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Like other Protestant organizations in the United States, the Christian Church was involved in the establishment of schools for African- Americans in the South in the years following the end of the Civil War. The most widely read books offering an interpretation of the history of this church tend to relegate the role of black people to passive recipients of white benevolence and largesse in this process of education reform. This book examines the agency of African-Americans in the founding of educational institutions for blacks associated with the Christian Church. The philosophical discourse within the Christian Church concerning the purpose, type, and control of these schools is examined as well as the prevailing racial assumptions and attitudes that informed each of these areas.

The Souls of W. E. B. Du Bois: New Essays and Reflections
By author: Edward J. Blum   Edited by: Jason R. Young
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H777
ISBN: 9780881461367
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
The Souls of W. E. B. Du Bois is a collection of articles that treat Du Bois on the subject of religion by reintroducing his life and work to an audience that may be familiar with his work generally but may never have seen analyses of his study of religion. Because the project includes articles that examine both Du Bois’s personal religious life along with his examination of religion, the editors seek to add not only to our knowledge of Du Bois’s scholarly contributions but also hope to shed light on his personal life and religiosity. Also, in treating the biography and career of a thinker whose work covers much of the twentieth century, the editors intend this work to address larger issues related to religion in the United States over the course of the century.
