Across God's frontiers [Catholic sisters in the American West, 1850-1920]

Roman Catholic sisters first traveled to the American West as providers of social services, education, and medical assistance. In Across God's Frontiers, Anne M. Butler traces the ways in which sisters challenged and reconfigured contemporary ideas about women, work, religion, and the West; moreover, she demonstrates how religious life became a vehicle for increasing women's agency and power. Moving to the West introduced significant changes for these women, including public employment and uncon

Across the plains in the Donner Party by Murphy, Virginia Reed, 1834?-

Across the plains in the Donner Party

The story of the Donner Party is very much the story of James F. Reed's family, not simply because the Reeds were prominent members, but because they left much documentary evidence: diaries, memoirs, correspondence and letters written en route and interviews shortly after the disaster. The adopted daughter of Reed, Virginia Reed Murphy's memoir is a noteworthy recounting of the Donner party disaster and its gruesome end. Her writing is sprightly, informal, and full of human interest.

It's almost as if people are afraid that if they take a moment of rest, they might discover that all the busyness is covering up a void in their lives. Brady Boyd shows how to find the peace God wants for people, and how to live a life that embraces stillness and solitude.

Addicted to mediocrity [20th century Christians and the arts] by Schaeffer, Frank.

Addicted to mediocrity [20th century Christians and the arts]

In this provocative book, Franky Schaeffer shows how Christians today have sacrificed the cultural prominence they enjoyed for so many centuries and settled for mediocrity. This sad state of affairs is evidenced by the kind of cheap kitsch that represents Christianity today: trinkets, tee shirts, and bumper stickers that put the name of the Creator of the universe on the same level as a soda pop brand name. Schaeffer goes on to criticize the representation of Christianity in the media, arguing t
