0889651353 / 9780889651357; Some cried War! And spilled the blood of man upon the soil. Some preached Peace, and begged the blood of God upon the soul. "Most of the people you will meet in these pages are real people whose stories were first told in the journals, diaries, pamphlets, books, and town records of the 17th century New England colonists The culture of the New England Indian and the New England colonist is widely documented - I have tried very hard to walk in the moccasins of the one and the shoes of the other, thinking their thoughts and speaking their hearts. I found that my own conception of both the Indian and the Puritan had been skewed by Hollywood and Hawthorne, and that the actual record tells us a tale far more complicated and fascinating. Through a dark glass we can still see it. " Mark Ammerman 392 pages including bibliography, glossary of terms, and historical notes. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Lamb The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, Moore, Christopher
3 Moore, Christopher Lamb The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
0061438596 / 9780061438592; The black flexible cover is decorated and has wording in gold; some of it where a hand would hold this book is worn away on the front, and on the spine. ; Absurdist novelist Christopher Moore gives us this novel that begins with Biff being resurrected in the 20th Century to complete missing parts of the Bible, under the inefficient supervision of Raziel. BIff narrates that he and Joshua (by Biff's account, the Hebrew original of the Hellenized "Jesus") travel Eastward to consult the Three Wise Men (a magician, a Buddhist, and a Hindu Yogi) who attended Joshua's birth, so that Joshua may learn how to become the Messiah. Over twenty years, Joshua surpasses the trio by incorporating his beliefs into theirs: he learns to multiply food, learns to become invisible, and gains his ability to resurrect the dead, initiates his first meeting with Biff in childhood. Throughout his role, Biff is sarcastic, practical, and loyal, against Joshua's temperamental and sometimes idealistic character. The recounting of Jesus' human and godlike qualities, combined with Biff's earthy debauchery, humorously explains the origins of judo and cappuccino and how rabbits became associated with Easter. The Three Wise Men, Mary Magdalene, Joseph, and Mary all appear as well: Mary Magdalene (here nicknamed 'Maggie') is depicted as harboring love for Joshua, while Joshua remains celibate, and Biff compensates by an active sexuality of his own. At the novel's conclusion, Biff gives "The Gospel According to Biff" to Raziel, as does Maggie, having just finished her gospel as well.

As We Forgive, Vandenberg, Frank
5 Vandenberg, Frank As We Forgive
The plot of this story is unusual. The theme is a basic love that outlived long years of separation, suffering, and loneliness though it was hidden, stifled, and crushed. Herman and Jan were brought up in a Christian orphanage and then left to their own resources out in the world. They both became soldiers of fortune and went to the Dutch East Indies. Jan later came to America and met Kathryn and was engaged to her. While away at the Spanish-American war Kathryn married his rival. That left a dreadful hurt. After a series of world adventures he returned again to America and received some important news which ended in forgiveness, reconciliation and joy. Best of all were the spiritual blessings which resulted from it. This book shows the importance of a Christian education, implanting the truths of the Gospel in the hearts of the young. 160 pages, jacket has minor chips to the top and spine head. 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" tall

The Calling of Dan Mattnews, Wright, Harold Bell
6 Wright, Harold Bell The Calling of Dan Mattnews
The main point of this novel is that a man who cannot reckon his life worth it's face value is to be untrue to his own heart and soul convictions. Harold B. Wright served as pastor of a Christian Church in Missouri from 1905 to early 1907. He then accepted an invitation to pastor a Christian Church in California. But before the end of the year Wright had left the ministry for good. He decides to go into business rather than to pursue the ministry and immediately he began work on this story of a young preacher who courts a woman. This book is largely autobiographical: Dan Matthews, the hero of the book, leaves pastoral ministry to be true to himself, although he was asked to leave his pastorate at the request of the elders of the church. Corners and spine ends of the burgundy cover are lightly worn. There is an ink stamp on the inside cover, ffep, and Table of Contents pages from a library in 1910. The date is included; on the back free end paper there is a portion of (I think) the jacket pasted in that describes this book. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
