Invisible Hero: Patrick R. Cleburne presents a level of detail that is unsurpassed in the study of this significant figure, focusing on the military and political aspects of his service while avoiding the social or personal sidelights found in a general biography. Battles and movements are explained in an objective light, exposing his triumphs as well as his failures, his assets as well as his shortcomings. The result has been an analysis of a man unappreciated by his own government, yet widely regarded as the finest infantry officer in the Western Theatre.

Shakespeare’s Prince: The Interpretation of the Famous History of the Life of King Henry the Eighth

The Famous History of the Life of King Henry the Eighth is Shakespeare’s most thoughtful history play—it was about this play that Schlegel made his famous comment that “Shakespeare was as profound a historian as a poet.” Yet, this last play, Shakespeare’s lone Tudor history, was popular at its first playing and has proven a crowd pleaser whenever it has been performed. Ever seductive in its trappings of power and emphatic pomp and pageantry, it delineates in a political way the characters of England’s most surpassing statesman and her finest queen, as well as of the king thought most infamous of all by celebrated later English writers like Hazlitt and Dickens.

By author: Stephen Bluestone
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P564

Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
Many voices, including perhaps that of God, can be heard in the title poem of Stephen Bluestone's THE PAINTED CLOCK, a dramatic meditation on the journey to Treblinka, the death camp itself, and the ultimate destination within the camp, the death chamber. Within the camp, history comes to an end and Nature as we know it is abolished. Using Treblinka as a setting, Bluestone examines man's relationship with God. Having granted man the power of moral choice, can God, too, become a victim of the Holocaust? The title poem of this volume is a powerful exploration of the covenant, if any, between the Creator and the created.

The Invisible Hand in the Wilderness: Economics, Ecology, and God
Product Code: P489
ISBN: 9780881464870
Product Format: Paperback

Price: $30.00
Most environmental theologians focus their efforts on inspiring a love for the natural world. They seek out metaphors and images from the world’s scriptures to create an ethical revolution so that people will begin to passionately care for the earth. The problem with this approach is that most people already appreciate nature. However, the values that direct their lives at work and as consumers are more important to them. They are more likely to derive their sense of meaning and articulate their goals using the symbols and methodologies of economics. This book brings together insights from three fields: economics, ecology, and theology in order to construct a more healthy and productive picture of human wellbeing. Economic ideas have a theological history that needs to be addressed if we are to begin healing the world.
