Through novels such as Gone with the Wind, the story of the fall and destruction of Atlanta has joined myths of other lost cities such as Atlantis, Troy, and Jericho. Sallie Clayton's memoirs show us the reality of Civil War Atlanta from Secession to the memorials to the fallen, many years after the war. Sallie was a member of one of Georgia's wealthiest and most prominent families. Her memoirs detail the losses her family suffered. Moreover, Sallie seems to have been in all the wrong places throughout the war. From her we have a first-hand account of war-torn Atlanta, plantation life during the war, the opening shots of the battle for Chattanooga, and of postwar riots in Augusta and Athens.

By author: C. Douglas Weaver
Product Code: P211
ISBN: 9780865547100
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
This study of William Marrion Branham’s ministry reveals much about the healing methodology of deliverance evangelists. Branham’s theology of healing highlights the widely accepted role of evangelists as mediators between God and the afflicted. In addition, some of his methods are still commonly practiced in healing revivalism. The dynamic growth of Pentecostalism in the twentieth century is a major feature of the modern religious scene. From its beginning, divine healing was recognized as a critical element of the Pentecostal movement. Branham is acknowledged as a leader of the healing revival movement. Although little known outside of the Pentecostal movement, his work had tremendous influence on the "prophetic" identity claimed by his contemporaries, today’s televagelists, and the whole of Pentecostalism itself.
