Recent controversy about the relationship between religion and politics has only magnified the general confusion that has always attended reflection and discussion about the “two realms.” The current welter of divergent, even contradictory, ideological positions is frustrating. For Christians the disagreements of style and substance between Roman Catholics and Protestants lie at the heart of the problem. Yet as John W. Cooper argues in The Theology of Freedom, clarity amid the confusion is possible. Dr. Cooper identifies “two great beacons of clarity-one a child of Rome, the other a child of the Reformation.”

This unique book, originally published in a limited edition in 1982 and out of print for many years, is the most comprehensive collection of Civil War letters written by residents of Southeastern Alabama and Southwestern Georgia to be published. Poignant in emotion, informative in detail, and broad in scope, the correspondence contained here provides us with a unique opportunity to understand the Civil War and its effect on individuals and families from an intensely personal perspective. The writers, the great majority of them unlettered and expressing themselves in a disarmingly honest manner in their heartfelt missives, collectively paint a compelling portrait of a watershed moment in national history from a regional viewpoint. They make well-known events tangible and lesser-known sidebars illuminating.

The Disappearing Act
By author: Sara Pirkle Hughes
Product Code: P561
ISBN: 9780881466522
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
In her first collection of poems, Sara Pirkle Hughes explores the role memory plays in shaping identity and a person’s perception of the past. The book’s title, THE DISAPPEARING ACT, posits that time is a magician causing every moment in a person's life to disappear, and every poem in the collection is the poet's attempt to recapture what has vanished, while also acknowledging the inherent paradox of writing about the past. The fallible nature of memory makes it impossible to preserve an experience free of distortion.
