The Free Will Baptist Vol 131

Author: Darren Davenport
Publisher: Forgotten Books
ISBN: 0666496145
Release Date: 2018-02-27
Genre: Reference

Excerpt from The Free Will Baptist, Vol. 131: March, 2013 In 1957 I was asked to join the faculty at Mount Olive Junior College to teach the courses in religion and serve as campus minister. Our third child, another daughter, was born in March 1958. Then in the summer of that year I was asked to serve as academic dean in addition to the duties I had already assumed and I served in all of those positions for the next four years. In one of those years I served also as vice president of the College while the president was on leave for further studies in higher education at Florida State University. Incidentally, I was elected in 1957 to serve as secretary of the North Carolina Convention of Churches and continued to serve in that capacity until September 1962. Those were challenging years as the College took the necessary steps to be accredited by the North Carolina College Conference in 1958 and then the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1960. It was during that period that the controversy with the National Association of Free Will Baptists heated up, resulting finally in the separation of the Convention from the national body in March 1962, of which it had been a constituent member since 1935.

A Nation of Outsiders

Author: Grace Elizabeth Hale
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199792382
Release Date: 2011-02-04
Genre: History

At mid-century, Americans increasingly fell in love with characters like Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye and Marlon Brando's Johnny in The Wild One, musicians like Elvis Presley and Bob Dylan, and activists like the members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. These emotions enabled some middle-class whites to cut free of their own histories and identify with those who, while lacking economic, political, or social privilege, seemed to possess instead vital cultural resources and a depth of feeling not found in "grey flannel" America. In this wide-ranging and vividly written cultural history, Grace Elizabeth Hale sheds light on why so many white middle-class Americans chose to re-imagine themselves as outsiders in the second half of the twentieth century and explains how this unprecedented shift changed American culture and society. Love for outsiders launched the politics of both the New Left and the New Right. From the mid-sixties through the eighties, it flourished in the hippie counterculture, the back-to-the-land movement, the Jesus People movement, and among fundamentalist and Pentecostal Christians working to position their traditional isolation and separatism as strengths. It changed the very meaning of "authenticity" and "community." Ultimately, the romance of the outsider provided a creative resolution to an intractable mid-century cultural and political conflict-the struggle between the desire for self-determination and autonomy and the desire for a morally meaningful and authentic life.

Pickett s Charge at Gettysburg

Author: James A. Hessler
Publisher: Savas Beatie
ISBN: 9781611212013
Release Date: 2015-07-19
Genre: History

150 years after the event, the grand near-suicidal attack against the Union position on Cemetery Ridge still emotionally resonates with Gettysburg enthusiasts like no other aspect of the battle. On the afternoon of July 3, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee ordered more than 12,000 Southern infantry to undertake what would become the most legendary charge in American military history. This attack, popularly but inaccurately known as ÒPickettÕs Charge,Ó is often considered the turning point of the Civil WarÕs seminal battle of Gettysburg. Although much has been written about the battle itself and PickettÕs Charge in particular, PickettÕs Charge at Gettysburg is the first battlefield guide for this celebrated assault. After the war, one staff officer perceptively observed that the charge Òhas been more criticized, and is still less understood, than any other act of the Gettysburg drama.Ó Unfortunately, what was true then remains true to this day. The authors of this bookÑtwo of GettysburgÕs elite Licensed Battlefield Guides along with one of the Civil WarÕs leading cartographersÑhave corrected that oversight. Grounded in the premise that no better resource exists for understanding this unique event than the battlefield itself, PickettÕs Charge at Gettysburg encourages its readers to explore this storied event from a wide variety of perspectives. For the first time, readers can march toward the Copse of Trees with ArmisteadÕs Virginians, advance on the Confederate left with PettigrewÕs North Carolinians, or defend the Angle with Alonzo CushingÕs gunners and thousands of Union soldiers. There is much here to enrich the experience, including dozens of full-color original maps, scores of battlefield and other historic photographs, a unique mix of rare human interest stories, a discussion of leadership controversies, and a rare collection of artifacts directly related to the charge. PickettÕs Charge at Gettysburg is designed for readers to enjoy on or off the battlefield, and will give Civil War enthusiasts an entirely new appreciation for, and understanding of, GettysburgÕs third day of battle.
