With long, solitary periods at sea, far from literary and cultural centers, sailors comprise a remarkable population of readers and writers. Although their contributions have been little recognized in literary history, seamen were important figures in the nineteenth-century American literary sphere. In the first book to explore their unique contribution to literary culture, Hester Blum examines the first-person narratives of working sailors, from little-known sea tales to more famous works by Herman Melville, James Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, and Richard Henry Dana. In their narratives, sailors wrote about how their working lives coexisted with--indeed, mutually drove--their imaginative lives. Even at leisure, they were always on the job site. Blum analyzes seamen's libraries, Barbary captivity narratives, naval memoirs, writings about the Galapagos Islands, Melville's sea vision, and the crisis of death and burial at sea. She argues that the extent of sailors' literacy and the range of their reading were unusual for a laboring class, belying the popular image of Jack Tar as merely a swaggering, profane, or marginal figure. As Blum demonstrates, seamen's narratives propose a method for aligning labor and contemplation that has broader applications for the study of American literature and history.

He gave us a desire to reach out and embrace our loved ones with such intensity that our love would cause us to die for the ones we love. Even His word says, aGreater love has no man, but that he would lay down his life for a friend.a Youare Home Now portrays the love we have for one another. But remember that Jesus is the one who put love in our hearts. He is our example to follow. For what will it profit us if we gain the world but lose our soul.

Wonders of Life Beyond the Grave H. A. Baker’s first book, Visions Beyond the Veil, vividly depicted the heavenly revelations that the Chinese boys at Baker’s orphanage received, as well as the miracles that followed. These experiences transformed Baker’s life and mission work, and he felt led to gather the best sources on visions and revelations of heaven that had come to his attention. The result, Heaven and the Angels, is a narrative of heavenly life based on personal accounts—drawn from books, articles, letters, tracts, and interviews—of those who described seeing heaven after having received visions or been raised from the dead. These accounts provide revelation on such areas as… The New Jerusalem and heavenly mansions The ever-present light and life of Jesus The delights and service of heaven’s inhabitants Our future perfection in body, soul, and spirit The duties of angels, in heaven and on earth How believers can participate with heaven today Since the place to which we ultimately journey should be of great concern and interest to us, we must find out all we can about the blessed Land of Promise. Yet heaven is more than something to be experienced after we die. As Baker affirms in this book, the miraculous power of God and the ministry of angels are available to every believer today.

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters… These are the opening lines to one of the most memorized, inspirational, and comforting passages in the Bible—and one of the greatest poems of all time. In six verses, it provides a microcosm of God’s grace. When anxiety robs us of sleep, our most powerful “tranquilizer” is Psalm 23. It’s a soul-soother. It appears in the middle of a trilogy of psalms dealing with our past, our present, and our future needs. In The Lord is My Shepherd, Morgan teaches Psalm 23 verse-by-verse, explaining its extraordinary power to change lives and ease our troubles. He shares its fascinating context and colorful background, as well as his own charming, real-life stories of herding sheep. You’ll find encouragement to enjoy the “green pastures” of life while becoming strengthened by the “dark valleys.” Furthermore, Morgan maintains that some of the Bible’s richest truths are summarized in these six simple verses of Psalm 23. In knowing the Good Shepherd, we have total resources for all our internal, external, and eternal needs. Through this clear explanation of the biblical text and great stories that illustrate the love and care of the shepherd, The Lord is My Shepherd will help you rediscover the joy, inspiration, and peace in the green pastures of this beloved psalm.
