Seven Dove Awards, four Singing News Fan Awards, and the Marvin Norcross Award testify to his unparalleled reputation in the gospel music industry. In this book, more than fifty of James' closest friends share their memories of this beloved lead singer. Included among these contributors are some of the most famous names in gospel and country music, as well as nationally-known ministers and evangelists, and a few close family members. Some of these memories are moving, some are tributes, and some are absolutely hilarious.

46 Bonhoeffer, Dietrich (Bethge, Eberhard) BONHOEFFER: EXILE AND MARTYR
Collins 191 Pgs. 1975 Hard Cover Good 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 
Published thiry years after Dietrich Bonhoeffer's death, this book has a double interest. First it assesses the international discussion of the personality and theology. Dr. Bethge shows that he understands very well why so many people have been fascinated --and why they have reacted in such different ways. But a Bonhoeffer's pupil, friend, editor and biographer he knows that this very famous man's thought deserves more serious attention than it has yet received. His book is therefore more a stimulus than a retrospect. He states the agenda for the next thirty years. Second, he proves the fertility of Bonhoeffer's ideas by relating them briefly to the Churches under Communism and at greater lenght to South Africa. Based on lectures given at the University of Cape Town, and with a chapter by the Sough African theologian John de Gruchy, this book explores afresh some of the questions as urgent for a christian under apartheid as for one under Nazism. How does the christian ministry become credible in a Church of integrity? What are true ecumenism and authentic theology? How is a Christian to choose between compromise and martyrdom? These were not simple questions to Bonhoeffer; that is why the answers he reached can help Christians caught up in new crises, dilemmas and tragedies.

48 Bonhoeffer, Dietrich (Huntemann, Georg) DIETRICH BONHOEFFER --an Evangelical Reassessment
Baker Book House; 342 Pgs. 1996 Paperback Like New 6 X 9 
Georg Huntemann, a well-known conservative scholar in European theological circles, reinterprets Bonhoeffer in the context of events that swirled through German society from his birth in 1906 until his execution at the Flossenburg concentration camp in April 1945. This book is a reminder that while Bonhoeffer confronted the church for its relationship with National Socialism, that message was not just for 1930's Germany; it is highly relevant to today's church.

Random House; 471 Pgs. 2000 2000 Hardcover As New 
Hard Cover. Like New/Like New. This book is a brilliant biography of two great social & religious figures whose inheritance lives on to this day. William Booth (1829-1912) was one of the extra-ordinary men of his age, a pawnbroker's clerk who would found the most successful religious movement of the nineteenth century ---The Salvation Army. As a twenty-year old, he developed the unshakable belief that God had ordained him to convert the world to Christianity. Convinced that both churches of Victorian England were ignoring the needs of the poor, he founded the East London Christian Mission. As the mission became the Salvation Army, it recruited thousands of members in battalions around the globe. It's membership is now in the hundreds of thousands in virtually every country. Catherine, his wife, was a chronic invalid and mother of eight children (within 10 years), she inspired the social policy that was, & remains, an essential part of the Salvation Army's success. Catherine held ideas on social equality that were ahead of her time, and she encouraged the army to accept "women's ministry" and give female officers authority over men.

Moody Press, 1990, 235 pgs., HB, DJ, Good Condition Hard Cover Good Good 
Hard Cover. Good/Good. Though their bodies lie cold & dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today's world. They continue to rule becuse they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently g rasped by masses of people but are erroneous and anti-scriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, business, homes, even the church. As we continue unknowingly subscribe to their philosophies we keep the grave open for: Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, & Soren Kierkegaard. Dave Breese warns us of the dangers of believing unreservedly the ideas of these seven men. He also reminds us of the only man whose life and words we c an trust completely ---Jesus Christ.

59 Brengle, Elizabeth Swift BIOGRAPHY OF ELIZABETH SWIFT BRENGLE [by Eileen Douglas]
Salvation Army; 117 Pgs. 1990 1990 Hard Cover Like New 
Hard Cover. Like New. Mrs. Brengle's life reminds us of the humble sweetness & yet dignitiy of the violet. Her life, especially its later part, was more sheltered and retired than that of many Salvation Army Officers. This volume is as full of beautiful surprises as a violet bed in early spring. Here are two instances of this grace. Early in the volume we read: ---"I have learned to trust Him entirely for results, & to leave results with Him. It is not necessary that I should see.but it is so necessary I should not shirk, that I should be sure I have done my utmost & left no stone unturned." Then nearer the end: ---"My home with you (her husband) could not seem any more definite, personal, & delightful than my home with God."
