The Phoenix Preacher Nightstand
One of the books I reference below talks about how excited people were when book publishing took off in the 16th century.
We seem to have lost that wonder at having in depth information at our finger tips.
I’m hoping we can reclaim it.
These books are a bit different…these are books I have in audio format from Audible (now part of Amazon) that I listen to in the evening before bed.
If you use the links, I make a little money…even if you don’t you will profit from them.
1. “The American Civil War”. My favorite teacher on the Civil War, Gary Gallagher, teaches one of the “Great Courses”.
2. “Reconstruction”. To understand American history and our current racial divide, you have to understand Reconstruction. Eric Foner is the acknowledged master on the topic.
3. “Slavery By Another Name”. How black Americans were re enslaved from the Civil War to WWII…very helpful in understanding our history and current racial issues.
4. “Stamped from The Beginning.” How racists ideas became part of our national fiber… a very important book in my opinion.
5. “The Battle Cry of Freedom”. In my opinion,the best of the great Civil War narratives…even better than Shelby Foote’s epic.
6.”The Anglican Way”. Where you can learn what I’m making such a fuss about…
7. “The Time Travellers Guide to Elizabethan England”. Boy, is this fun if you’re a history buff. Want to know what it was like to live in 16th century England? This book takes you there…
What’s on your nightstand?
