Narrative of the life of Frederick Douglass : an American slave by Frederick Douglass( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into a life of bondage, Frederick Douglass secretly taught himself to read and write. It was a crime punishable by death, but it resulted in one of the most eloquent indictments of slavery ever recorded. His gripping narrative takes us into the fields, cabins, and manors of pre-Civil War plantations in the South and reveals the daily terrors he suffered as a slave. Written more than a century and a half ago by an African-American who went on to become a famous orator, U.S. minister to Haiti, and leader of his people, this timeless classic still speaks directly to our age. It is a record of savagery and inhumanity that goes far to explain why America still suffers from the great injustices of the past. With an Introduction by Peter J. Gomes and an Afterword by Gregory Stephens

The good book by Peter J Gomes( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why are so many intelligent and compassionate people embarrassed to say they find wisdom and comfort in the Bible? Why do so many seekers turn to New Age religionsinstead of the Bible? And how as a society did we come to cede biblical interpretation to those who would use the Bible as a tool for division and exclusion? In this groundbreaking book, Peter Gomes shows how to read the Bible and what it says about the topics that concern us all, including joy suffering, evil, and goodness. He also explains what the Bible really says about women, gays and lesbians, and people of color. With compassion, humor, and insight, he gives readers the tools and understanding they need to make the ancient wisdom of the Bible a dynamic part of their modern lives

[In this book, the author offers] a collection of forty timeless addresses he has preached in The Memorial Church, Harvard University. In Part One, Seasons, [he] begins with Advent expectations, showing us how at Christmas we can usefully channel our feelings of depression, impatience, and joy; how at Easter - the time of the Resurrection - we can confront our fears of the fear of death and give life a chance, arguing that we don't have to die to live; and how Trinity is a time to see the big picture: the wholeness and unity of God. In Part Two, Themes, [he] focuses on what the scriptures have to say about a range of issues and sensibilities. He speaks of friendship, relationships, and our desire for happiness; suggests that frustration and anxiety can be means for the discovery of spiritual wholeness; and covers such themes as hospitality, patriotism, stewardship, and thanksgiving. With his characteristic eloquence, compassion, and grace, and always sensitive to the needs and anxieties of his listeners, [he also] offers readers the tools they need to understand the wisdom of the Bible and the joy and inspiration it can bring to everyday life.-http://www.bn.com
