John Beverly Amos didn't want his biography written during his lifetime. He once made an attempt to write his life story, jotting down some notes and working with a writer. But the he called it off. He just had too many things yet to do in his life, he explained in that soft spoken, gently-smiling, down-home way of his. He was right. He had accomplished more in his life than most people even dream of, but there was so much more to do-to contribute, a word he probably never would have used in regard to himself, but which so many people whose lives he touched use to help define him. He was the epitome of the American dream. Born in a small Alabama town, he started a weekly newspaper when he was thirteen, became a country lawyer, and eventually was primary founder of the billion-dollar American Family Corporation, whose chief subsidiary is and international life insurance company-American Family Life Assurance Company (AFLAC)-which he founded when he was only in his early thirties. He was a friend and advisor to presidents, legislators, and international leaders.

These stories, written over the course of her career, are set in the three places that have meant the most to her—the Southern mountains, Vermont, and New York City. Most of these stories were published in journals or anthologies, though three are previously unpublished.

Rescue the Perishing: Selected Correspondence of Annie Armstrong
Edited by: Keith Harper

Product Format: Paperback

Price: $25.00
Annie W. Armstrong, more familiarly known as "Miss Annie," served as the first corresponding secretary of the Women’s Missionary Union, Auxiliary to the Southern Baptist Convention. Between 1888 and 1906 she wrote hundreds of letters on behalf of Southern Baptist missionary enterprises. Almost all of her letters inimitably expressed her opinion of "how things ought to be." Rescue the Perishing offers for the first time a selection of letters from this remarkable woman’s life. As a group, these letters indicate that Armstrong was both an innovator and tireless promoter of numerous missionary projects at home and abroad. Stubborn and forthright, some might even say abrasive, Miss Annie’s correspondence demonstrates that she was a gifted administrator with unparalleled organizational skills. Her guiding hand shaped the WMU’s role in Southern Baptist life. Moreover, her ability to work with a variety of denomination leaders in different contexts influenced Baptist polity and helped forge Southern Baptist denominational identity. These letters have never been available to the general public, and they offer great insight into the life and development of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 1934 the WMU recognized Annie W. Armstrong’s legacy by naming their Easter offering for Home Missions in her honor. As these letters show, the recognition was well deserved.

Peter’s Last Sermon: Identity and Discipleship in the Gospel of Mark

What Christian would not want to hear Mark’s gospel as the first believers heard it? Using the tools of modern scholarship, Peter’s Last Sermon takes seriously Mark’s audience. The community would have heard rather than read the gospel. It would have encountered the story as a whole instead of piecemeal in short texts for sermons. Missing would have been the static of Matthew, Luke, and John.

Despite that they didn’t know each other, the writing styles of American writer Herman Melville (1819–1891) and Danish writer Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855) complement each other, especially their humor, irony, penchants for paradox, and passions for imagery and poetics. In addition, their works similarly address issues of the world and time. Esthetic, ethical, social, philosophical, and theological paths on which they walk reveal similar footprints.
