Thomas F. Dixon, Jr. (1864-1946) was an American Baptist minister, playwright, lecturer, North Carolina state legislator, lawyer, and author, perhaps best known for writing The Clansman (1905), which was to become the inspiration for D. W. Griffith's film, The Birth of a Nation (1915). Although currently his life and works are discredited by his racism, he was among the most popular speakers and writers of his day. His brother, the popular preacher Amzi Clarence Dixon, was also famous for helping to edit The Fundamentals, a series of articles influential in fundamentalist Christianity. He was the author of 22 novels; additionally, he wrote many plays, sermons, and works of nonfiction. Most of his work centered around three major themes constant throughout his writings: the need for racial purity, the evils of socialism, and the necessity of a stable family with a traditional role for the wife/mother. His other works include The Southerner: A Romance of the Real Lincoln (1913), The Victim: A Romance of the Real Jefferson Davis (1914), The Foolish Virgin (1915), The Way of a Man (1918) and The Man in Gray (1921).

Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest Sea Raven Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Though Nathan Bedford Forrest was not a writer, had little formal education, never authored a book, and was not a professional speaker, he did leave us with a number of witty comments, profound words, and sublime statements. Award-winning author, Southern historian, and Forrest scholar Lochlainn Seabrook has gathered together some of the more memorable and impressive of these and forged them into a small but fascinating work: "The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest." Among the nearly 140 footnoted quotes included here are Forrest's thoughts on warfare, military rules, West Point graduates, education, friendship, and even drinking, gambling, cussing, and morality. Seabrook, the author of the popular bestseller, "A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest," has also included excerpts from newspaper interviews, Forrest's postwar appearance before the U.S. Joint Select Committee, and numerous examples of the General's personal notes and letters and, of course, his military dispatches and reports. Much of what Forrest said was never written down but was recorded from the memory of those who associated with him. Particularly poignant is the inclusion of Forrest's black equal rights speech to the Independent Order of Pole Bearers, the forerunner of the modern NAACP, chronicled by a local reporter. From the General's own words we learn that he was not an "illiterate inbred hillbilly," a "monstrous racist," or a "cruel and violent slave owner," as the North and New South disingenuously continue to preach. Quite the opposite. He was not only, as Confederate General Richard Taylor said of him, a "tender-hearted, kindly man," he was also a true Southern gentleman, a fair and compassionate Rebel officer, a successful businessman, and a faithful husband who loved children, protected women, and gave charitably to war veterans, orphans, and widows. A conservative Southerner and a staunch supporter of states' rights who freed his slaves years before Abraham Lincoln issued his fraudulent Emancipation Proclamation, unlike the North, Forrest stood firmly behind our country's most sacred document, the Constitution-before, during, and after Lincoln's War. "The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest" is a brief but important work that, like Seabrook's other three books on the General, will introduce him to new readers, help destroy the numerous absurd and slanderous Northern myths surrounding him, and bring him out of the shadows and into the mainstream of American history where he justly belongs. Obscured for the past 150 years, now discover the real man for yourself-in his own words. An attractive, unique, affordable, and popular tourist-friendly work that will appeal to both casual Civil War buffs and hardcore Civil War scholars alike, "The Quotable Nathan Bedford Forrest" is the perfect addition to any retail outlet, including not only bookstores, but Civil War sites, historic houses, museum gift stores, antique shops, B&Bs, tack shops, motorcycle shops, and gun stores. Tennessee author Lochlainn Seabrook, a cousin of General Forrest's, is the winner of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal. Known as the "American Robert Graves" after his celebrated English cousin, Seabrook is the author of over thirty popular adult and children's books, including: "A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest"; "Nathan Bedford Forrest: Southern Hero, American Patriot"; "Give 'Em Hell Boys! The Complete Military Correspondence of Nathan Bedford Forrest"; "The Quotable Robert E. Lee"; "The Old Rebel: Robert E. Lee As He Was Seen By His Contemporaries"; "Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!"; "The Quotable Jefferson Davis"; and "The Unquotable Abraham Lincoln: The Presi

Opis - Romantyczne klimaty dawnej Anglii - Miłość, namiętność, zdrada... Romans historyczny, napisany zgodnie z najlepszymi regułami gatunku. Akcja toczy się na początku XIX w. w środowisku posiadaczy ziemskich w Anglii, łącząc elementy romansowe i sensacyjne. Książka ta stanowi znakomitą lekturę odprężającą. Akcja obfituje w zaskakujące zwroty, a prócz tego mamy doskonałe opisy przyrody, eleganckich wnętrz i przyjęć, w które czytelnik chętnie się zanurza. Autorka umiejętnie buduje atmosferę beztroskiego, spokojnego luksusu, w którym przebywają ludzie dobrzy i pogodni. Zwłaszcza opisy dworów i dworskiego życia przenoszą czytelnika w inny świat. Jest to również książka pełna humoru, znajdziemy w niej wiele błyskotliwych dialogów i dowcipnych ripost, lecz dobrotliwy humor przejawia się też w stosunku autorki do swych bohaterów, ich mniej istotnych problemów, a także ogólnie do świata i życia.

The Memoirs of Louis Bouyer - 2838787455

The Memoirs of Louis Bouyer Angelico Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Louis Bouyer was a major figure in the Church of the last century. These memoirs, which Bouyer wrote in a humble and humorous vein--though without withholding his notoriously sharp pen when needed--allow the reader to enter with him into the great events that shook the Church and the world during the era of upheavals and transformations through which he lived. They amount to an intelligent, sensitive, and pious man's fascinating chronicle and deep reflection on Christianity's life and travails in a world committed to modernity. Bouyer here tells us the full and varied story of a life devoted to the discovery of the sources and Tradition of the Church in doctrine, spirituality, liturgy, and scripture. We follow Bouyer's journeys from his inherited Protestantism to the fullness of the Catholic Faith, from his position as a Lutheran pastor to the priesthood in the Oratory of France, from humble parish life to the Olympian heights of his official theological and liturgical collaboration (and difficulties) before and after the Council with such influential figures as Congar, Daniélou, de Lubac, Bugnini, and... Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI). Bouyer paints the lush landscape of a century's illusions and disenchantments; his memoirs are essential for understanding the history of the Church during that momentous time. "It would be impossible for anyone to speak knowledgeably about liturgical developments in the past 50 years without being cognizant of the work done by Louis Bouyer. His Memoirs, which feature his outspoken opinions and profound intelligence as well as a personality deeply imbued with the true spirit of the Catholic liturgy, can serve as a balance and perhaps an antidote to misinformation about the post-Vatican II developments in the Sacred Liturgy of the Latin Rite. A careful perusal of these Memoirs, now available in English in an excellent translation by John Pepino, also can serve as a corrective to the sometimes unbridled and euphoric optimism that marked liturgical studies in the late 1960s and early 1970s. I cannot recommend strongly enough the reading and study of this work."--BISHOP (EMERITUS) FABIAN BRUSKEWITZ, Lincoln, NE "While Father Louis Bouyer was a prolific author in many fields of theology, his most lasting legacy may well be his contribution to liturgical renewal, including his collaboration in the post-conciliar reform of the Roman rite. Bouyer is a sharp observer, and his retrospective is frank and at times caustic. Here is the authentic voice of a key witness to momentous developments in twentieth-century Catholicism. The publication of these important memoirs makes a real contribution to writing the history of the Church in our times."--FR. UWE MICHAEL LANG, Cong. Orat.; Heythrop College, University of London "Louis Bouyer was, according to his former student Cardinal Lustiger "the least conformist and yet among the most traditional" of theologians--a reality borne out in these memoirs, which reveal Bouyer sinking ever-deeper roots in Catholic tradition as well as his ever-present ability to look at matters with a fresh, critical eye. Expertly translated and edited with additional notes for English readers, The Memoirs of Louis Bouyer not only provides important historical details hitherto unpublished--particularly regarding the liturgical movement and post-conciliar reform--but also offers a lesson in the nature of living Catholic Tradition: one that Bouyer would insist that we learn, and learn well."--DOM ALCUIN REID, Monastčre Saint-Benoît, La Garde-Freinet, France
