Based on the author’s childhood this fictional novel is filled with spirituality and humor and gives the reader a glimpse into the world of a Baptist minister. Set in 1963, Rev. Shepard and his family move to Millington where he has been called to pastor the Great Saints Baptist Church. Millington is a small town that is racially divided by the river that runs through it. The whites occupy the town’s west side, while a community of influential Negroes occupy the east side. During this literary journey, the lives of the church members and townspeople are exposed and we bear witness to an adult world of scandal, secrets, and disgrace. Before he can get settled into his new position, Rev. Shepard is bombarded with the needs of church members. The timid Murlene Combs whose husband has fallen prey to the town whore, Magic, is in serious need of counselling. Other Millingtonites are Rev. Barry Nichols, whose love of himself makes him vulnerable to the temptations of Magic; the Higgins’ who struggle through an old family secret; Billy, the giggly kid who cannot maintain his composure during church; Sadie Green, the church secretary who is always complaining about her corns; the controversial Deacon Chester Hawkins; Smooth, the pimp from The Bottom; and a den of gossiping woman. Love and salvation emanate from the trials and tribulations of the denizens in Millington. While some are redeemed, the damned must pay the price for their sins.

Most forms of religion are best understood in the con- text of their relationship with the surrounding culture. This may be particularly true in the United States. Certainly immigrant Catholicism became Americanized; mainstream Protestantism accommodated itself to the modern world; and Reform Judaism is at home in American society. In Evangelicalism, Richard Kyle explores paradoxical adjustments and transformations in the relationship between conservative Protestant Evangelicalism and contemporary American culture. Evangelicals have resisted many aspects of the modern world, but Kyle focuses on what he considers their romance with popular culture. Kyle sees this as an Americanized Christianity rather than a Christian America, but the two are so intertwined that it is difficult to discern the difference between them. Instead, in what has become a vicious self-serving cycle, Evangelicals have baptized and sanctified secular culture in order to be considered culturally relevant, thus increasing their numbers and success within abundantly populous and populist-driven American society. In doing so, Evangelicalism has become a middle-class movement, one that dominates America's culture, and unabashedly populist. Many Evangelicals view America as God's chosen nation, thus sanctifying American culture, consumerism, and middle-class values. Kyle believes Evangelicals have served themselves well in consciously and deliberately adjusting their faith to popular culture. Yet he also thinks Evangelicals may have compromised themselves and their future in the process, so heavily borrowing from the popular culture that in many respects the Evangelical subculture has become secularism with a light gilding of Christianity. If so, he asks, can Evangelicalism survive its own popularity and reaffirm its religious origins, or will it assimilate and be absorbed into what was once known as the Great American Melting Pot of religions and cultures? Will the Gospel of the American dream ultimately engulf and destroy the Gospel of Evangelical success in America? This thoughtful and thought-provoking volume will interest anyone concerned with the modern-day success of the Evangelical movement in America and the aspirations and fate of its faithful.
Peter Didsbury has been getting wildly enthusiastic reviews of his work for many years now. The TLS called him the best new poet published by Bloodaxe. His ﬁrst collection, The Butchers of Hull, came out in 1982. He won a Cholmondeley Award for his second collection, The Classical Farm (1987), which was also a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. In That Old-Time Religion, his staggering powers of invention are again on display, and his ﬂouting of convention and subversive humour are as outrageous as ever.

Pastor and author Martin Thielen has compiled a list of ten things people need to believe, and ten things they don't, in order to be a Christian. This lively and engaging book will be a help to seekers as well as a comfort to believers who may find themselves questioning some of the assumptions they grew up with. With an accessible, storytelling style that's grounded in solid biblical scholarship, Thielen shows how Christians don't need to believe that sinners will be "left behind" to burn in hell or that it's heresy to believe in evolution. And while we must always take the Bible seriously, we don't always have to take it literally. At the same time, Christians do need to believe in Jesus--his life, his teachings, his death and resurrection, and his vision for the world. A great benefit of those beliefs is that they provide promising answers to life's most profound questions, including: Where is God? What matters most? What brings fulfillment? What about suffering? Is there hope? Thielen articulates centrist, mainline Christianity in a way that's fresh and easy to understand, and offers authentic Christian insights that speak to our deepest needs. This new edition includes a leader's guide, previously only available online, and a new introduction from the author that reflects on the book's reception. The leader's guide features unique and easily implemented aids for carrying out a seven-week, congregation-wide initiative that will help local churches reach out to their communities.

Under the Big Top examines the immensely popular big tent revivals of turn-of-the-twentieth-century America and develops a new framework for understanding Protestantism in this transformative period of the nation's history. Contemporary critics of the revivalists often depicted them as anxious and outdated religious opponents of a modern, urban nation. Early historical accounts likewise portrayed tent revivalists as Victorian hold-outs, bent on re-establishing nineteenth-century values and religion in a new America. In this revisionist work, Josh McMullen argues that, contrary to these stereotypes, big tent revivalists actually participated in the shift away from Victorianism and helped in the construction of a new consumer culture in the United States. How did the United States became the most consumer-driven and yet one of the most religious societies in the western world? McMullen shows that revivalists and their audiences reconciled the Protestant ethic of salvation with the emerging consumer ethos by cautiously unlinking Christianity from Victorianism and joining it to the new, emerging consumer culture. Under the Big Top helps to explain the continued appeal of both the therapeutic and the salvific worldview to many Americans as well as the ambivalence that accompanies this combination.

" . . . not a seminary text book . . . (but) an excellent book which is appropriate for lay preacher preparation, (church) officer training, group study and individual reading . . . a point of view which is highly relevant in today's cafeteria worship." Rev. John B. Rogers, Jr. - Montreat, NC " . . . some really good stuff here. Written to the level of the person who sits in the pew each Sunday, this book speaks to a generation that may rightfully fear for their worship tradition." Rev. Spencer Murray - Shreveport, LA "From Pentecostal to Episcopalian" raises issues which should be of interest to all Christians regardless of worship tradition . . . a useful study guide appropriate for all lay persons." Rev. John Albright - Winnsboro, LA It is a long road which separates Pentecostals from Episcopalians. Yet both denominations - and all the churches in between - claimallegiance to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. The worship styles cover the gamut from the free wheeling, spontaneous worship of the "low churches" to the set order of worship of the "high churches" dating back for centuries. All these churches, in some fashion or the other, claim kinship to American Protestantism. Why do Baptist in every worship service extend an invitation to come "and be saved'? Why do Presbyterians and Lutherans seem so staid and rigid? Why do Methodist appeal to "what's in your heart" and why do Episcopalians seem so much like the Catholics? Why do Pentecostals and non-denominational churches reject the worship traditions of the ancient church? In From Pentecostal to Episcopalian, the author traces the development of worship and attempts to provide answers as to why Christianity seems more divided than ever before. John Guice is a teacher in a long line of educators. Having taught Sunday School classes for over forty years, John is also an accomplished lay preacher having filled the pulpit of many of the Presbyterian churches in North Louisiana and South Arkansas. He is in demand as a leader of officer training events in many local churches and has served his denomination at every level of church government. His particular interests are in the fields of theology and church history. In addition, John has served on themission field in Haiti havingmost recently gone to Haiti some six weeks after the earthquake. Here on the mission field, he works with Living Waters for the World to install water purification systems for people who desperately need clean water.

This book is also about local history, but it's a little different; it's from the heart of the main character. It's about a simple life in simple times, but when I was living it, it sure seemed complicated.

How will the world end? Doomsday ideas in Western history have been both persistent and adaptable, peaking at various times, including in modern America. Public opinion polls indicate that a substantial number of Americans look for the return of Christ or some catastrophic event. The views expressed in these polls have been reinforced by the market process. Whether through purchasing paperbacks or watching television programs, millions of Americans have expressed an interest in end-time events. Americans have a tremendous appetite for prophecy, more than nearly any other people in the modern world. Why do Americans love doomsday? In Apocalyptic Fever, Richard Kyle attempts to answer this question, showing how dispensational premillennialism has been the driving force behind doomsday ideas. Yet while several chapters are devoted to this topic, this book covers much more. It surveys end-time views in modern America from a wide range of perspectives--dispensationalism, Catholicism, science, fringe religions, the occult, fiction, the year 2000, Islam, politics, the Mayan calendar, and more.

In this book, Katrina Hazzard-Donald explores African Americans' experience and practice of the herbal, healing folk belief tradition known as Hoodoo. Working against conventional scholarship, Hazzard-Donald argues that Hoodoo emerged first in three distinct regions she calls "regional Hoodoo clusters" and that after the turn of the nineteenth century, Hoodoo took on a national rather than regional profile. The first interdisciplinary examination to incorporate a full glossary of Hoodoo culture, Mojo Workin': The Old African American Hoodoo System lays out the movement of Hoodoo against a series of watershed changes in the American cultural landscape. Throughout, Hazzard-Donald distinguishes between "Old tradition Black Belt Hoodoo" and commercially marketed forms that have been controlled, modified, and often fabricated by outsiders; this study focuses on the hidden system operating almost exclusively among African Americans in the Black spiritual underground.
