In 1975, Jimmy Carter announced he would run for President. Under the new Federal Election Laws only $21.8 million would be provided for the General Election Campaign. A trivial amount compared to future campaigns. An army of loyal supporters, friends, neighbors, and elected officials, known as the Peanut Brigade, joined the campaign. They traveled across the country, joining Jimmy and Rosalynn, knocking on doors, standing at factory gates, walking streets, asking voters to vote for Jimmy Carter for President. In 1976, Carter was elected the 39th President of the United States and served one term. While the basics of his story are well known, they have never been told from the perspective of a “soldier” in the Peanut Brigade. Dorothy “Dot” Padgett, with an earthy, honest, and Southern voice, tells the story as if new to all of us. Humor and insight abound in this direct telling of how a peanut farmer from Georgia became President and leader of the United States. The secret is in his character, his morality, and in his being truly human.

For Paul Tillich three powerful spiritual forces determine our contemporary situation: science, technology, and capitalism. Culture, as he understands it, is the form of religion and religion is the substance of culture. From this perspective our contemporary “situation” inherently manifests religious and ethical dimensions. Tillich’s mediating theology requires an understanding of religious symbols and of the contemporary world to which they speak. According to J. Mark Thomas, “Doing theology today without an understanding of the dynamics of our technological era would have been, for him, impossible.”

Founded in fieldwork and reflection, LOST PLACES follows the author from small towns and rural landscapes, through a transitional city neighborhood, to the challenging construction of an urban renewal loft, as she struggles to renovate living spaces and transform relationships after an early divorce. In a voice droll and lyrical by turns, Hankla charts a path through enigmatic encounters with snakes and contemplations of Thomas Jefferson's problematic biography homes, underground and ancient cities, Star Trek, the contradictory nature of Appalachia, desire, our families, spiritual callings, and definitions of home.

Politics of Biblical Theology, The: A Postmodern Reading

The Biblical Theology Movement and its critics together represent a particular expression of a hundred-year-old conflict that defines late modernism. We are at the transition to a new paradigm that may be described as Postmodernism. A postmodern analysis of this historical moment gives unique insight into the present situation, which, while indeed different, is of course rooted in the earlier period. Along the way, David Penchansky proposes, sets forth, and models a new form of biblical criticism-for this historical moment-known as "Ideological Criticism."

" There are many persons," Lee suggests, "both inside and outside the church, who want to be a part of Christian faith, but they cannot abide the rigidity of some. These affirmiations offer a positive antidote. A compressed belief is not a dimished faith. A belief may be questioned, even discarded, and one still move on with a strong faith."
