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

11 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 593 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
For the Bible tells me so by Daniel Karslake( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary tells the stories of five Christian families coming to terms with their gay and lesbian children, in an America where thanks to social forces clashing, the very atmosphere seems filled with hatred, old-fashioned prejudice, and fear of the other. Amidst scholars parsing the Old and New Testaments, there are copious archival photographs, illustrations of biblical scenes, and a thoughtful and constructive exploration of the need for spirituality and family relationships in human life. The irony, of course, is that the people who would benefit most from an encounter with the film--fundamentalists, gay bashers, leaders of the ex-gay movement, and the like--are the folks least likely to see it or be open to its message of tolerance

The good book by Peter J Gomes( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 175 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
