Unto a Good Land offers a distinctive narrative history of the American people -- from the first contacts between Europeans and North America's native inhabitants, through the creation of a modern nation, to the standing of the United States as a world power. Written by a team of distinguished historians led by David Edwin Harrell, Jr. and Edwin S. Gaustad, this textbook shows how grasping the uniqueness of the bAmerican experimentb depends on understanding the role of religion as well as social, cultural, political, and economic factors in shaping U.S. history.A common shortcoming of most United States history textbooks is that while, in recent decades, they have expanded their coverage of social and cultural history, they still tend to shortchange the role of religious ideas, practices, and movements in the American past. Unto a Good Land addresses this shortcoming in a balanced way. The authors recognize that religion is only one of many factors that have influenced our past -- one, however, that has often been neglected in textbook accounts. This volume gives religion its appropriate place in the story.Unprecedented coverage of the forces that have shaped the history of the United States While none of America's rich history is left out, this volume is the first U.S. history textbook to give serious attention to the religious dimension of American life. This textbook is not a religious history; instead, it offers an account of American history that includes religious ideas, practices, and movements whenever they played a shaping role.Comprehensive and current This volume traces the American story from the earliest encounters between the first North Americaninhabitants and Europeans through the 2004 presidential election. Complete and balanced treatment is also given to issues of gender, race, and ethnicity, as well as cultural, political, and economic forces.A clear and compelling narrative The authors are more than expert historians; they are also talented writers who recognize history to be the retelling of human life. United by a seamless narrative structure, these chapters restore the bstoryb to history.Multiple formats specially designed for flexible classroom use Unto a Good Land is available as a single hardcover edition or as two paperback volumes, offering maximum flexibility when adapting curriculum for one- and two-semester courses in U.S. history. The two paperback volumes can be used for U.S. history survey courses divided at 1865 or 1900 -- or at any date in between.Informative special features to complement the text In addition to the book's exceptional narrative, an array of special features enhances the instructional value of the text and points students to resources for further study.Includes assistance for teaching and test preparation The instructor's manual for Unto a Good Land provides helpful suggestions for lesson plans and assignments, and the test bank provides multiple-choice and essay questions for use as study aids, quizzes, or tests.Suitable for instruction at both secular and religious colleges and universities Drawing on their experience in both secular and religious schools, the authors have ensured that this textbook is suitable for U.S. history classes in a wide variety of settings.

Gleanings In Exodus

Produced in his pre-mil days, but still very useful, as Pink always is. The beginning of a nation arrests world attention; the bondage of a people evokes the full range of human feeling; the effective work of a human deliverer for one or a million raises human emotions to an exceedingly high pitch. In Exodus we have the beginning of a nation, Israel; we have the enslavement of a people, the Israelites; we have the arrival of a deliverer named Moses who carried through the demand of the Lord, ''Let my people go.'' In spiritual terms we have the beginning of a Christian life, the acknowledgment of a power which will work in the Christian and for the Christian beyond the natural; the redemption from the bondage of sin, of Satan through a divine Deliverer, Jesus Christ our Lord. Christians young or old cannot help but be blessed in pursuing a reading and study of Exodus, second book in the Bible. In this book Arthur W. Pink provides you with hours of blessed study help for your spiritual enrichment. He gives thoughtful guidance for weeks on end for the teacher of a Bible class. Student or teacher may mine some of the richest o Bible ore from this book of Exodus and become the wealthier spiritually in possession of its mighty truths. We heartily commend to you GLEANINGS IN EXODUS by Arthur W. Pink.

The existence of a God has seldom been based on physical evidence; typically our belief in their reality has been based solely on what we were taught as children to believe. This friend I do believe to be a fact, and even if we do not believe in God people will still be born, still grow, and still die. As a species living upon our earth we will still find ways to create and do amazing things, we will also manage to still find a way to kill one another using the most brutal techniques we can envision. None of these things requires a belief in God; they require only the human mind.

Breathturn Into Timestead

Paul Celan, one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, created an oeuvre that stands as testimony to the horrors of his times and as an attempt to chart a topography for a new, uncontaminated language and world. Breathturn into Timestead: The Collected Later Poetry gathers the five final volumes of his life's work in a bilingual edition, translated and with commentary by the award-winning poet and translator Pierre Joris. This collection displays a mature writer at the height of his talents, following what Celan himself called the "turn" (Wende) of his work away from the lush, surreal metaphors of his earlier verse. Given "the sinister events in its memory," Celan believed that the language of poetry had to become "more sober, more factual . . . ‘grayer.'" Abandoning the more sumptuous music of the first books, he pared down his compositions to increase the accuracy of the language that now "does not transfigure or render ‘poetical'; it names, it posits, it tries to measure the area of the given and the possible." In his need for an inhabitable post-Holocaust world, Celan saw that "reality is not simply there; it must be searched for and won." Breathturn into Timestead reveals a poet undergoing a profound artistic reinvention. The work is that of a witness and a visionary.
