  2. I think Ed’s ‘Emergence’ booklet is fantastic.

    Pratt’s ‘Fugitive Poets’ is nice. Do you have the Sanders edition? Reading it is very Nashville of you. You need to read ‘I’ll Take My Stand’ if you’ve not done so.

  3. Agreed about Emergence. Harrell is refreshingly open in that book. It makes me wonder why no one has reprinted it.

    I do have the Sanders edition and I have read I’ll Take My Stand. I first read it as a senior in high school. I consider it to be one of the most important books I’ve read. Being in Nashville, I’m looking forward to spending time in Vanderbilt’s collection of Fugitive/Agrarian papers and beefing up my collection at local bookstores.

    For now, though, it’s wall-to-wall Old Testament! 🙂

  4. Ed has recently republished ‘Emergence’. I’m not sure where you can get it, but I have a copy of the new one somewhere around here.

  5. Really?

    I’d love to know where I can get a copy if you could find out for me.



  6. I just read Hedges book. I thought his considerations were very worthwhile.

  7. I just finished it today. Wow. If I had the time, I’d look up some of his sources, particularly some of the works he cited on the psychology of killing. American Christianity is shot through with nationalistic assumptions; it’s too bad that this book won’t be read by more Christians.


  8. I just ordered 3 copies of Ed Harrell’s “Emergence…” booklet from the FC bookstore. It’s not in the online catalog; I had to order it over the phone 😦
