When All God's Children Get Together : A Memoir of Race and Baptists
By author: Emmanuel McCall
Product Code: P365
ISBN: 9780881460650
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $18.00
Baptists in the South were once considered the last bastions of segregation. From 1957 to 1995, God was at work changing the attitudes of those opposed to the acceptance of all people. The change was so phenomenal that Dr. C. Peter Wagner at Fuller Theological Seminary called Southern Baptists the most open and diverse denomination in the nation. This book tells how God used people and events to bring about unheralded changes. The book is written from the author’s point of view, therefore it is limited in scope. However, because the author had a national platform, the book reflects that perspective as well.

Between Fetters and Freedom: African American Baptists since Emancipation
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H906
ISBN: 9780881465402
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
The essays in BETWEEN FETTERS AND FREEDOM explore a number of issues bearing on post-Civil War African American Baptists. With limited resources at their disposal, precisely what did freedom mean? Would African American Baptist organizations be recognized as legitimate by white peer organizations? What sort of internal stress would African American organizations face as they gained traction in the black community, and what sort of stress would a rapidly changing culture place on those organizations and the people who made them what they were? Through it all, preachers and lay people alike wondered how their voices would be heard above the din.

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.

When The Church Bell Rang Racist

Product Format: Paperback

Price: $30.00
For centuries ringing bells have signaled the welcome of the Christian church to all who would hear its gospel. At certain times and in certain places, however, prejudice has led the church to limit its welcome to its own kind. The Southern white church during the civil rights movement fell victim to racial prejudice and its bells rang a welcome only for those who supported the segregated status quo. Donald E. Collins tells the story of the Alabama-West Florida Methodist Conference and its reactions to the civil rights movement.

Southern Civil Religions in Conflict : Civil Rights and the Culture Wars

Back in print, revised, and enlarged to bring the discussion to the present, Manis shows how two conflicting civil religions emerged in the South during the civil rights movement, each with its own understanding of America's calling and destiny as a nation. Using black and white Baptists in the South as case studies, Manis interprets the civil rights movement as a civil religious conflict between Southerners with opposing understandings of America. Originally published in 1987, this new, expanded edition further argues that the civil rights movement and its opposition, with their conflicting images and hopes for America, foreshadowed the ongoing "culture wars" of recent days.

America’s Historically Black Colleges & Universities: A Narrative History, 1837–2009
By author: Bobby L. Lovett
Product Code: P509
ISBN: 9780881465341
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00

This narrative provides a comprehensive history of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The book concludes that race, the Civil Rights movements, and black and white philanthropy had much affect on the development of these minority institutions. Northern white philanthropy had much to do with the start and maintenance of the nation’s HBCUs from 1837 into the 1940s. Even from 1950 to 1970, HBCUs depended upon financial support of philanthropic groups, benevolent societies, and federal and state government agencies, but the survival of HBCUs became dependent mostly on their own creative responses to the changing environment of higher education and have helped to shape our culture and society.

 


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.
