Rebel Raider: The Life of General John Hunt Morgan
"The first full biography of the famous Confederate cavalry leader from Kentucky. It provides fresh, unpublished information on all aspects of Morgan's life and furnishes a new perspective on the Civil War. In a highly original interpretation, Ramage portrays Morgan as a revolutionary guerrilla chief. Using the tactics of guerrilla war and making his own rules, Morgan terrorized federal provost marshals in an independent campaign to protect Confederate sympathizers in Kentucky. He killed pickets and used the enemy uniform as a disguise, frequently masquerading as a Union officer. Employing civilians in the fighting, he set off a cycle of escalating violence which culminated in an unauthorized policy of retaliation by his command on the property of Union civilians. To many southerners, Morgan became the prime model of a popular movement for guerrilla warfare that led to the Partisan Ranger Act. For Confederates he was the ideal romantic cavalier, the "Francis Marion of the War," and they make him a folk hero who was especially adored by women. Discerning fact from folklore, Ramage describes Morgan's strengths and weaknesses and suggests that excessive dependence on his war bride contributed to his declining success. The author throws new light on the Indiana-Ohio Raid and the suspenseful escape from the Ohio Penitentiary and unravels the mysteries around Morgan's death in Greeneville, Tennessee. Rebel Raider also shows how in the popular mind John Hunt Morgan was deified as a symbol of the Lost Cause.

The Love of God
Our understanding of the love of God has been tragically distorted. The comfortable, sentimentalized version we commonly encounter today is far from the biblical depiction of God’s love. Featuring contributions from well-known evangelical scholars, this multi-disciplinary study presents the biblical view of the love of God from the perspectives of systematic theology, biblical theology, apologetics, pastoral theology, and ethics. The contributors—including D. A. Carson, Andreas J. Köstenberger, Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., Robert L. Plummer, and many others—address a variety of issues related to how God’s love is expressed in the Old and New Testaments, the Trinity, apologetics, Christian living, social justice, and more. This addition to the Theology in Community series will promote clear, sound thinking about what Scripture means when it declares that “God is love.” Part of the Theology in Community series.

Resisting Tyranny: The Story of Matthew Lyon, Early American Patriot
Resisting Tyranny is a new book about an American Revolutionary patriot, Matthew Lyon, a Congressman from Vermont, who was thrown into jail for criticizing then President John Adams under the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798. This is the story of a young Irish immigrant who became a leader in the Republican Party of his time, a crusading newspaper editor, and the founder of a town in Vermont and another in Kentucky. His legacy makes history come alive in our time with warnings for us to treasure and protect our First Amendment rights."This book makes for fine reading, not just for its story value. Resisting Tyranny also gives an insight into the dynamic of how tyranny can thrive, not just in Lyon's time, but our own. It speaks to the crucial importance of protecting our rights to free speech and a press."--Don Wendorf, Retired Psychologist and Musician"At a time when a U.S. president and his sycophants, and even religious advisors, are accusing the media of inventing 'fake news,' this brief book inspires us to remember our priceless constitutional rights. This Irish-American and friend of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys never feared to champion democracy against the pretensions and powers in both State and Church." --Dwyn Mounger, Historian, American History"The sheer genius of this book is found in the way it puts the average person in touch with this period of history and in the way it makes history's lessons relevant for today. It warns against governments that step into tyranny to insure they can do what they desire to do against the will of the people."--Will Randolph, Director of Office on Aging, United Methodist Church"This is a good time for the Morgans' book Resisting Tyranny to appear, as we live with Faulkner's declaration, 'The past is not dead, it's not even past.' Matthew Lyon's story needs to be revisited, as some of the challenges to democracy Lyon faced, we confront in our time. In a real sense Lyon's opposition to the then President John Adams Sedition Acts of 1798 is a mirror of what we face today in places of power. We need to heed Lyon's letter to future citizens to take being a citizen seriously, 'to organize for good causes,' 'to seek truth,' and 'challenge lies,' if we are to preserve and extend our freedom. If not, the words of George Santayana may well come true, 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.' This is a well written book without a dry word in it."--Jane M. Thibault, Retired Gerontologist"Penning a letter to the present generation in what they imagine to be the words of their Irish ancestor, who rose to the level of statesman from the ranks of servanthood, the Morgans' write, 'Protect and defend your republic, whether from within or without. . . . The worse threats come from those who subvert the values we uphold.' I would highly recommend this book to any who seek to preserve the lessons of history, both for the betterment of themselves and the current generation, and those whose responsibility it will be to ensure the lives and liberties of all."--Daniel C. Potts, Founder and President Cognitive Dynamics FoundationRichard L. Morgan is a retired Presbyterian minister and history professor with over twenty books to his credit.John C. Morgan is adjunct professor of philosophy at Albright College's School of Professional Studies, a newspaper columnist, and author of eight books and many articles.

Suffering and the Goodness of God
Suffering and the Goodness of God presents biblical truths concerning suffering and challenges believers to promote justice and to emulate God's grace as they minister to others. Famine. Sickness. Terrorist Attacks. Natural disasters. Each day horrific scenes of suffering are streamed before us through television, the Internet, and newspapers. Believers are taught that God is good, and they believe this truth. Yet when they are faced with suffering and hardships, the one question believers most often asked is, Why? Suffering and the Goodness of God brings insight to many contemporary concerns of suffering by outlining Old and New Testament truths and tackling difficult questions concerning God's sovereignty, human freedom, and the nature of evil. Suffering and the Goodness of God offers believers biblical truths concerning suffering and then challenges them to promote justice in the harsh, unsure world around them and to emulate God's grace as they minister to those who are suffering. Few topics are more crucial or central to the doctrine and daily life of a Christian than the glory of God. Despite its importance, however, few exhaustive books have been written on the subject. Andreas Köstenberger, Tremper Longman, Richard Gaffin, and other evangelical scholars and theologians have now collaborated to fill the void and help the church teach and protect this precious doctrine. The Glory of God is the second volume in the Theology in Community series, which uses sound biblical doctrine to carefully examine important theological issues. While substantial in theological content, books in this series are widely accessible and coherent. In this volume, Köstenberger, Longman, Gaffin, and others guide readers through the glory of God in the Old and New Testaments and Johannine and Pauline literature. The doctrine is traced in historical theology, applied in pastoral theology, and fully delineated in a concluding systematic theology. College seniors, pastors, seminarians, and educated laypersons will find this book enormously useful in their personal studies and ministries. Part of the Theology in Community series.
