He was active in the revival that swept the Army of the Tennessee. Lowrey was a Baptist pastor, a self-educated man, and pioneer in women's education. Sadly this great Southern gentleman is little known today. 47 pages View more info

The hymn has been of great importance to the people in the South throughout their history. In life and in death the ministry of psalms and hymns has been a vital part of the fabric of life.

Two volumes in one. First, biography of Randolph Harrison McKim. Second, sermons of McKim. Within this offering we find another example of the impossibility of divorcing Christianity from the armies of the South; but, we have a new twist on the story, for here we have an account of a soldier turned minister. McKim goes to war as a soldier, answers the call to minister to the spiritual needs of his fellow man and trades his rifle for a Bible. The rest of the story is about his faithful, but blind, horse "Charlie." Twelve sermons are included in the second volume. View more info
