Product Description
The study of Christian doctrine is often considered to be the domain of professional Christian scholars. After all, what does doctrine have to do with the average layperson? And what does the history of Christian belief have to do with how we should live today?

John Hannah asserts that an understanding of theology-"the distilled knowledge of God that is the foundation of a walk with God"-is essential for living the Christian life. "No one can walk with a person he or she does not know," he states. "Neither can we say we walk with God if we do not have an accurate knowledge of Him."

This book is not a collection of dry and dusty theories, nor a debate about the hair-splitting minutia that so often divides us. It is, instead, an exploration and explanation of the essential truths of the Christian faith-truths that determine how Christians live their lives every day. It is a call to the church to again have God our number one priority. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dogma, Theology, Christian Doctrine
Our Legacy- The History of Christian doctrine written by John D. Hannah is a comparison and contrast of different trains of thought. What is the meaning of God's word, who God is, and the will of God. The presentation of the development of Christian thought through the last two thousand years is clear and respectful to the authors contrary views. Different aspects of Christian theology are developed through the presentations of the differing views. One learns why Roman Catholic thought and evangelical protestantism differ greatly. To a lesser extent Greek Orthodox.Reading this book an evangelical and Catholic will develop an understanding about modern liberal theology. The modernist perspective is a relative small part of this work when covering the 1750 to 1900 time period.(Albert Schweitzer, Friedrich Schleirmacher,Charles Finney),All in clear presentation. John Hannah developed differing perspectives about the Authority about the bible, The Trinity, The person, of Christ, The work of Christ, Salvation, The Church, and End Times. The book covers six time periods of thought and seven subjects, so all perspectives are kept to a couple page. A great read, a great starting point to understand theology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
This is a must have for any student of the Bible. Hannah brilliantly summarizes church history and organizes his book around key doctrines.It is interesting, fresh, conservative and extremely helpful for spiritual growth. When one realizes most of the issues that Christians wrestle with today have already been dealt with, one wants to learn from history, so as not to repeat it again.Thanks Dr. Hannah! ... Read more

Product Description
This is it: the unbelievable true story of how a team that barely qualified to be part of the original AFL became the first NFL dynasty of the 21st century. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: New England Patriots presents a fast-paced, entertaining look at 48 years of Patriots history. There are heroes and villains, the expert and the inept, moments of glory and moments of agony, triumphs, tragedies, and terrible trip-ups. The details you always wanted to know, the moments you hope you'll remember forever, the players, coaches, and owners you know you'll never forget (for better or for worse). This is the New England Patriots at their best, their worst, and their weirdest. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Here about the New England Patriots
There are many books now available detailing the history of the New England Patriots.Having read many of them I find that nobody has really come up with anything new to say.The typical "stories of" books essentially tell the same tales and I am not sure why the recent ones are even published because they have nothing new to say. And that is certainly the case here.There really isn't anything new that hasn't already been published elsewhere.

That said, this book, for the most part is fairly good.Most of it focuses on the team of the 2000's, walking through the dynasty years and some of the pivotal moments of this decade.Not that it completely ignores the past, there are chapters talking about that as well, but it is more upbeat and positive than similar books that dwell on all the bad things that have gone on with the Patriots in its history.

The book briefly talks about all the bad things too, of course, like Darryl Stingley getting paralyzed in 1976, the Lisa Olson incident, Super Bowl XX, the horrible ownership of the 1990's, and Spygate.I have to say, even though I'm sick of hearing about it personally, the author gives pretty short shrift to Spygate.

The author does a good job of talking about the resurgence of the Patriots under Bill Parcells, his most critical decision being the choice of Drew Bledsoe as the number one draft pick, who lead the franchise to winning records and a Super Bowl, over Rick Mirer, who was bust for the Seattle Seahawks.And it goes on to rightly praise the virtues of coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

There are also vignettes about some of the greatest Patriots players like Adam Vinatieri, Troy Brown, Drew Bledsoe, Tom Brady, Steve Grogan, Tedy Bruschi, and John Hannah, to name a few.

The one area I disagree with the author is when he discusses the pivotal moments of the 2003 season which lead to the Patriots second Super Bowl win in three years.He identifies a tough, gutty win over the Tennessee Titans in week five as being the turning point in the season because the team showed a toughness and ability to win that it failed to show the previous season when it missed the playoffs (in that season Tennessee clobbered the Patriots physically in a dismal Monday Night Game).

To me one play defines the 2003 season.In week 13 after taking a commanding lead against the Indianapolis Colts at halftime, the Colts came back in the second half and had the ball first and goal from the one yard line with little time left on the clock.After three stops, on fourth and goal from the one, Willie McGinnest stones Edgerrin James on a run attempt to seal the win.Had McGinest not made that play at the end of the game, the Colts, not the Patriots, would have had home field advantage in the playoffs.And that, to me, was not only the most critical game of the season, but one of the most critical plays in Patriots' history.

I can't imagine a non-Patriots fan wanting to read this book, especially if you've read similar accounts or histories of the teams.For Patriots fans I would say, reading anything about the Patriots is enjoyable, but this book did not provide any new insights that haven't been discussed elsewhere and I would not recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent but not exceptional history of the Patriots
Well the title kind of sums up my feelings towards this book. In one respect it is a cheerleading tome for Bill Bellichick and all that he has accomplished. Not to diminish Bill's exceptional work but the Patriots are one of the most colorful franchises in sports history and deserve more than just a superficial treatment.

I agree with one of the other reviewers who mentioned all that was missing in this book including great players like John Smith and Stanley Morgan as well as a history of the really terrible drafts the Pats made before drafting Drew Bledsoe. Actually there are a few after Bledsoe. I would have also like to see more than a passing mention of Pete Carroll and his failure to win with the Pats while winning national titles at USC. It wasn't because Carroll was soft that we know now.

Still, despite being superficial, the book is enjoyable enough for Patriot fans to read and get some sense that life did exist and there was an NFL franchise in Boston before Tom Brady and company. I would recommend it as a good read.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, Bad, Ugly and Incomplete
The book does provide a glimpse into the chaos that is Patriots history.For folks who do not know much of the pre-Brady team, you get a hint of what went on before his arrival.However, there are many overlooked episodes from Patriots history which deserved more coverage or at least a mention. For example in the incident and game department there was:

1. The playoff game when the Foxboro Stadium lights went out
2. The 1985 game against the Bengals when the fans tore down the goal posts. A few of which were electrocuted when the posts hit a high-tension wire on route 1.
3. The blizzard game against Buffalo in the 60's
4. Drew Bledsoe's amazing comeback game against the Vikings
5. The Monday Night Game against the Jets, which ended in severalfans being arrested. This put a ban on Patriots hosting Monday night football for many years.
6. When the NFL strike hit in the 80's, it was Doug Flutie who crossed the picket line and consequently the Patriots had the highest attendance during the strike season
7. A detailed account of the AFL championship game between the Chargers and the Patriots
8. They were one of the few, if only, team to disband a cheerleading squad

As for the players: How can any Patriots history book not mention:

John Smith the iron man soccer style kicker?
Stanley Morgan, who for years held many of the team receiving records?
Dr. Bill Lenkitis who worked as a dentist in the off-season?

As for the writing style, the book tends to jump around a lot and in many instances repeats itself. The writer also shares his opinion constantly through the book. A good example is there is call-out on Upton Bell who was the GM for a season.The author states how bad he was, but offered no details. The call-out was in the middle of a spygate chapter, which had nothing to do with Upton.He also states that whenever the Sullivan family did a negotiation, they were cheap. when the Kraft's do it, it's called business.

Also, the author has you believe the Patriots had no fan-base prior to the Bledsoe era.For example, he mentions most folks who saw Jack Tatum's hit on Daryl Stingley, saw it in the evening news. or the folks who Steve Grogan celebrated Grogan day at Gillette, never saw him take a snap.The Patriots have always had a loyal fanbase and many chose to stay away from the stadium. A quick check of the Sunday Nielsen ratings during the lean years would reveal the Patriots not only won their time-slot, the crushed all the other sports shows on any given Sunday.

The book offers a nice introduction to the Pats unique history. However, if you remember the events of the last decade, you'll recall almost everything in this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun read for Pats fans, especially young folks and latecomers
This is a thoroughly enjoyable and interesting read about the three time Super Bowl champs.Though very little of the book is concerned with the team's beginnings and first four decades of play, it can be considered a valuable primer for younger fans more concerned with Tom Brady than Babe Parelli and Jim Plunkett.

I would recommend this one to all New England Patriots fans, though not wholeheartedly due to the sometimes stiff and awkward prose.A good read, though.

4-0 out of 5 stars great little book for pats fans.
I agree with the other reviewer here. this book isn't really saying much that tales from the patriots sidelines or Stadium Stories:The New England Patriots, doesn't already say. It's a brief history of the New England Franchise. However, the difference comes because Sean Glennon writes it. I bought his other book, This Pats Year, which was an excellent and highly entertaining read. I recommend this book to anyone who doesn't own the other two books i mentioned. This book is a brisk, funny and light read, that hits the spot. Like Wes Welker, it's just a bit short, but an able performer for the red white and blue. A great intro especially for new patriots fans (of which there are many over the last few years).

If Mr Glennon is reading this somehow, I'd like to say this. I am pretty shocked and dismayed by the general lack of thorough and in-depth reporting on the patriots 2007 season in the media. I am thinking of writing a book on this subject myself one day. I think the undefeated regular season was an incredible year and deserves a full book written on the subject. I enjoyed reading the sections of this book relating to the patriots in 2007, but wished somebody out there would go further with the subject. To me, the loss in the super bowl was almost too incredible to be true, and forever will be. I sometimes wonder what, if anything the spygate/walsh tapes had to do with it. It may sound outlandish and ridiculous, but did the pats cheat their way through 07? were they told to throw the game in Arizona after being found out by the league and Arlen Specter etc? I have watched that game over and over and still can't believe how the giants won that game. It was an unprecedented aberration. Whether this was accident or design, i feel that a landmark year such as this deserves some in-depth reportage worthy of such a standout year in the annals of pro-football history.I'm not asking anyone to discover a conspiracy, that's not what i mean. But i feel this year was so incredible and unprecedented a book should be written revealing the mechanics of the season in fuller detail. Was there more to the "perfect" patriots than we know? It's shrouded in mystery as far as i'm concerned. Just how did the patriots blow it so spectacularly at the final hurdle?Folks saying simply "well, they didn't bring their A game into the playoffs, they were nervous, David Tyree made a circus catch" etc just doesn't cut it for me.

Anyway, The good the bad and the ugly is a great book, light, fun and entertaining. a great present for pats fans coming up to Christmas.

Product Description
Dallas Theological Seminary is often viewed as a bastion of conservative evangelicalism, marked by an unswerving devotion to theological positions of fundamentalism, biblical inerrancy, and dispensational premillennialism.An Uncommon Union, the first book-length history of Dallas Theological Seminary, written by a graduate and veteran faculty member of DTS, provides a necessary corrective to such a simplistic assessment. Using the tenures of the school's five presidents as the backbone for his narrative, John D. Hannah reveals the tensions that DTS has experienced in its eighty-plus years of existence.Each successive president of DTS brought his own unique style and perceptions to the school, even as he dealt with the changing religious and cultural milieu that swirled around it. Hannah argues that, rather than being a monolithic institution, Dallas Theological Seminary is a unique blend of differing heritages and of opposing traditions, a place that defies easy categorization.A keenly insightful and thoughtful work, An Uncommon Union illuminates the path charted by the leaders of a prominent American seminary in a rapidly changing world. All readers interested in the history and future of evangelicalism, regardless of their theological persuasion, will benefit from this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Well-written succinct history of DTS
John Hannah presents the story of Dallas Theological Seminary in a way that only a seasoned insider can--with critical appreciation and historical perspective. It could be said that the history of DTS is the history of dispensationalism, but Hannah resists the reduction of her identity to just one aspect, its hallmark importance notwithstanding. Hannah's choice to use the six presidents of DTS as the main storyline befits the idiosyncratic identity of the school; for, according to Hannah, DTS is neither fundamentalist, Protestant mainline, nor neo-evangelical. Rather, she is an outgrowth of the independent Bible conference movement, and she remains in a theological stance all her own.

Based on his research of personal correspondence from the school's presidents, institutional documents, board meeting minutes, and biographical materials, Hannah presents compelling evidence for his analysis. Therefore, if you are looking for an institutional history of DTS, then this well-written and well-researched work by one of the seminary's own distinguished faculty members is an indispensable resource. We can hope that more seminaries will follow Hannah's example in providing honest, frank, and open critical assessments of their own stories.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good history of a powerful institution.
Because of personal knowledge beginning in 1964, this is a very good history of a strong growing conservative Biblically based seminary, probably the third largest enrollment seminary in the country.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fair and balanced approach...
After numerous doctoral dissertations and extended overviews, Dr. John D. Hannah has now produced the definitive history of the founding and growth of the famous Dallas Theological Seminary. Irenic in both tone and style, Hannah provides readers with behind-the-scenes glimpses of the school's founder and first president, Lewis Sperry Chafer, as well as the school's four subsequent presidents. In fact, the role of the presidents ends up largely defining the direction the school has taken since its 1924 birth and Hannah (Ph.D, Univ. of Texas at Dallas), an accomplished historical theologian in his own right, uses the five different presidents, and the historical eras in which they serve, to move the book's narrative forward.
Especially helpful is the work's emphasis on dispensationalism and the manner in which that particular system of hermeneutics and theology has expressed itself at Dallas Seminary. Far from being a monolithic unit of thought, Hannah shows how the subtleties and nuances of this system of literal interpretation has served the school well for more than 80 years.
This clear work accurately situates Dallas Seminary not only in its historical context (1924 - the present) but also in its religious context; the broader conservative, evangelical tradition. Further, Hannah is to be commended for his historical accuracy as highlighted by voluminous footnoting and fact-checking. He tips his hand at the outset by noting, "errors of fact, prejudice, ignorance, and judgment can be attributed to no one but myself." This hopeful tone continues throughout and helps the book from becoming overtly polemical. This reviewer looks forward to seeing additional religious-historical overviews from the pen of Dr. Hannah documenting similar evangelical institutions. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting
A young woman treads the hallways of the Union hospital with a mission to serve the young men that are fighting in the bloodiest war seen on this fair land of ours.While her son is out fighting the battle, her battle is at the hospital attempting to provide better care for the soldiers.

Excellent content, I just wasn't too crazy about the format that it was wrote in.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Woman who Cared...
Hannah Ropes kept a diary for only one year during the time she served as a nurse in the Civil War.She actually supervised Louisa Mae Alcott and was responsible for manyof the reforms in the hospital where she worked.She was a well-spoken woman who was also not afraid to stand up to her male supervisors.She cared very much for, "her boys" as she called the patients she worked over day and night.She is one of those women who has not been given credit and has not been well-known until recently.Her untimely death ended a daring career as a feminist and take-charge Civil War Nurse.This is fascinating and inspirational reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm mad at Ms. Ropes. She should have written more!
Hannah Ropes was a feminist of her day. Yet she believed a wounded soldier needed a motherly woman's touch. These letters are a great gift and the editing job on the book is superb. Ropes worked herself to death in Union hospitals in Washington D.C. The Union lost a good nurse and history lost a terrific writer. (In fact Ropes was a writer before the war.) She battled anyone who got in the way of good health care including going all the way to and old friend, the Secretary of War to roust out a thief in the hospital system. She poignantly describes the wounded wrecks who passed her way and the efforts made by those who cared are poignantly described as well. Ropes writing abilities were great. They are aided markedly by the brief biography of her which serves as introduction to the book. Through it, we come to know the iron will of the woman which was so beneficial to her as a nurse but which she herself down-played. For any who value "first person history" this book is a gem! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars John Brown - An Ally For Freedom
"John Brown Mysteries" focuses on the circumstances and events surrounding the raid on Harper's Ferry, Virginia in 1859.Jean Libby and her fellow historians have written a fascinating book that examines an often misunderstood milestone in American history.Specifically, this collection of essays makes clear the involvement of African Americans in John Brown's famous raid and dispels erroneous historical accounts that downplay or ignore the role of African Americans in Brown's war against slavery.

My knowledge of John Brown was extremely limited until I read this book, and it introduced me to a man who should hold a prominent place in American history and be widely recognized as a role model for civil rights.I was surprised how little I knew about him; however this collection helped me understand that the absence of John Brown from my brain library of important Americans is the result of misrepresentations, omissions, and distortions of John Brown's achievements.Many historical accounts have marginalized Brown as unstable and overly zealous.But a man who was devoted to and gave his life for the abolition of slavery cannot be easily dismissed."John Brown Mysteries" provides a much needed portrait of this complex and outstanding American, and it will hopefully encourage readers to continue to explore his life and contributions, as I have.

In addition to its valuable text, the book includes many maps, period photographs, drawings and newspaper articles that help bring us into Brown's world.The book also tracks the origins of guns that may have been used at Harper's Ferry, demonstrating the meticulous detective work in which Libby and her associates engage.The collection's attention to historical sources and first-hand accounts of the raid validates it's credibility as an important document of American history.

The group who produced this book is called Allies For Freedom, and their work continues today to research and promote the legacy of John Brown.There is also a documentary by Libby called "Mean To Be Free: John Brown's Black Nation Campaign" that is worth seeking out.

3-0 out of 5 stars "Mysteries" Tries Too Hard
Jean Libby's _John Brown Mysteries_ is an ambitious attempt to continue writing an African-American-centered history of America's most famous and infamous abolitionist, John Brown. It is an important book, because too few historians of Brown pay attention to the role of African Americans in his struggle, despite that obvious facts that his was a struggle against blacks' enslavement and that Brown was personally at ease and friends with black leaders and laymen to a degree rarely seen even in abolitionist circles at the time.

At once an attempt to reintroduce lost or ignored primary sources by African Americans from the time of Brown's raid and an attempt to comment on them and on the discourse at large, _Mysteries_ is a strange book which can not decide what it wants to do, and so fails to do anything effectively. The tension between being a collection of primary sources and a commentary on them and a criticism of past work, all at once, leads to a variety of strange errors in both content and presentation. And none of it is helped by the writing of a committee - the authors are a collection of professional and amateur historians calling themselves "Allies for Freedom," after historian Benjamin Quarles' ground-breaking book. Editor Libby was not aggressive enough in crafting them into a coherent voice.

Presentation first: it is, sadly, simply hard to tell which document one is reading at any particular time, and where it comes from. Divisions between documents are poorly marked, as are the divisions between commentary and primary source. And despite the author's avowed desire to facilitate further research, the entire book is foot-noted half-heartedly. Used solely as a research tool, it is passable in style and quite valuable for its resurrection of rare sources. But read cover to cover, it is jumpy and ill-structured.

These errors in presentation make the content suffer. The authors do not address the context of their documents, drawing little distinction between accounts from the 1850s or the 1870s, even though changes in America between those times are impossible to overstate. They do not adequately examine the underlying factual assumptions of the book, which come from W.E.B. Dubois's 1910 biography _John Brown_. They do not address the latest research on Brown (found concisely in Paul Finkleman's _His Soul Goes Marching On_, 1995). And they do not note the changes in black discourse on Brown from the oratory-dominated 1850s and 1860s to the mainstream publications in 1910 by DuBois.

On the other side, even though the book is a deliberate and welcome attempt to refute white liberal historical accounts of Brown, which largely ignored African Americans except for Frederick Douglass, the authors refer to these accounts only abstractly. Comprehensive historical biographies by Stephen Oates (1984) and Oswald Garrison Villard (1911) have a very different view then biographies-as-eulogies (Franklin Sanborn and James Redpath's books, in 1876 and 1861, respectively), which were starkly at odds with the hatchet jobs coming from Robert Penn Warren and James Malin (1929 and 1940, respectively). They can not be mentioned, much less refuted, together.

So, on both the black and white sides of the discourse, _Mysteries_ oversimplifies. Some of these criticisms are unavoidable; Brown's memory is so complex, no book can fully address it, and _Mysteries_ is an accessible 115 pages. And _Mysteries_ does bring back to the forefront the cutting edge debate on Brown today, which is why anti-racist activists from the white and black communities came to such vastly different conclusions about the facts and implications of his actions. But readers would be better served to go not to _Mysteries_ but directly to its authors' inspirations, W.E.B. Dubois and Benjamin Quarles. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Used but in great shape. Worth every penny...
If you have an interest in pack goats... this is the book.The author clearly has a thorough understanding of these animals and is able to convey his experience with insight and humor.I believe the book is out of print, but if you shop around it can still be had at a great price.Some vendors wanted a rediculous amount... $50-$70 and higher. I got a copy signed by the author and only paid the cover price.The book was in great shape too.

This book is a must have if you plan on raising (or even just renting) pack goats.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glad I bought this book
While being an informative introduction to goat packing, this book is also fun to read and funny.If you are interested in goat packing, this book gives a perspective from the guy that "invented" it for America, beginning with coming up with the idea and improvising pack frames, to using them extensively and writing this book.

Would love to spend a couple of weeks in the mountains learning from this man.He really knows his stuff.Read this book in just a few hours.Couldn't put it down.Lots of "common sense" advise on raising, training, and packing with goats!

5-0 out of 5 stars Mionczynski knows his stuff
This is a great read whether you own goats or are just curious about goat/horse/llama packing. Trust me, once you have carried 85lbs of gear for 12 miles over the Continental Divide, you will think of it... Goat Packing offers advantages that the other means of animal packing do not: Goats can go anywhere, they are friendlier, you do not need to carry separate food for them for the trail and they do no environmental damage. Goat packing is a great way to keep getting into the remote country you love without breaking your back or knees and will save you much energy to off track hikes, climbing and peak bagging. This book give you the basics on choosing and using goats for packing gear and points you to other more detailed vet, breeding, and training resources. Mionczynski's years of experience of actually working with goats really shows and can give one a head start if you are planning a trip with an outfitter using goats or if you are thinking of doing it yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Christian Family Tree
Genealogy is a big interest in todays world.People love to find out about their ancestors.How They Found Christ in Their Own Words gives readers a wonderful chance to trace their Christian "family" ancestry.Ranging from Augustine through Madame Guyon to Andrew Murray and Watchman Nee, the autobiographies found in this book make absorbing reading.Using their own writings with a little touch of modern wording, the editor Bill Freeman gives us a glimpse into the intimate lives of 17 of the famous saints of Christianity.I enjoyed reading this book - no theology, no long words, just heart-born reminiscences leading to friendship and learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book!
This book has a great collection of personal stories of how men and women came to know Jesus Christ.Spurgeon's "Look and Live!" is one of my favorites.I highly recommend this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and historical
Extracts of autobiographical writings by notable Christians, with a focus on the moment of conversion in their lives. One would have to spend quite alot of money to assemble the original literature from which this was culled.An excellent digest, recommended for devout Christians and seekers. ... Read more
