Not long after Gwyneth finds refuge in his city, Thad Lane experiences the tug of love, though he fears it may blur lines of loyalty.

A Peculiar People: Anti-Mormonism and the Making of Religion in Nineteenth-Century America Audiobook

A Peculiar People: Anti-Mormonism and the Making of Religion in Nineteenth-Century America

Author: J. Spencer Fluhman Narrator: John Pruden Release Date: September 2012

Though the Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion, it does not specify what qualifies as a religion. From its founding in the 1830s, Mormonism, a homegrown American faith, has drawn thousands of converts but far more critics. In A Peculiar People, J. Spencer Fluhman offers a comprehensive history of anti-Mormon thought and the associated passionate debates about religious authenticity in nineteenth-century America. He argues that understanding anti-Mormonism provides critical insight into the American psyche because Mormonism became a potent symbol around which ideas about religion and the state took shape. Fluhman documents how Mormonism was defamed, with attacks often aimed at polygamy, and shows how the new faith supplied a social enemy for a public agitated by the popular press and wracked with social and economic instability. Taking the story to the turn of the century, Fluhman demonstrates how Mormonism's own transformations, the result of both choice and outside force, sapped the strength of the worst anti-Mormon vitriol, triggering the acceptance of Utah into the Union in 1896 and also paving the way for the dramatic, yet still grudging, acceptance of Mormonism as an American religion. "A pleasure to read. Fluhman's deeply researched work explores the tangled relationship between anti-Mormon and Mormon histories with a degree of thoroughness and comprehensiveness never before achieved."-Amanda Porterfield, Florida State University

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible Audiobook

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible

Author: Rev. Jesse Hurlburt, D.D. Narrator: Robert Whitfield Release Date: November 2008

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible has its roots in the old custom of parents telling their children stories from the Bible. One of those parents who kept this custom particularly alive and meaningful was Dr. Jess Lyman Hurlbut. Like many great works of literature, the stories that make up this book were told and retold innumerable times before being set down on paper. Hurlbut's classic retelling of the Bible contains 168 stories from the Bible, each one complete in itself, while together combining to form one narrative. It is the complete Bible story, running from Genesis to Revelation, told in the language of today for both young and old alike.

Sister Thorn and Catholic Mysticism in America Audiobook

Sister Thorn and Catholic Mysticism in America

Author: Paula M. Kane Narrator: Angela Brazil Release Date: November 2013

One day in 1917, while cooking dinner at home in Manhattan, Margaret Reilly felt a sharp pain over her heart and claimed to see a crucifix emerging in blood on her skin. Four years later Reilly entered the convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd in Peekskill, New York, where, known as Sister Mary of the Crown of Thorns, she spent most of her life gravely ill and possibly exhibiting Christ’s wounds. In this portrait of Sister Thorn, Paula M. Kane scrutinizes the responses to this American stigmatic’s experiences and illustrates the surprising presence of mystical phenomena in twentieth-century American Catholicism. Drawing on accounts by clerical authorities, ordinary Catholics, doctors, and journalists—as well as on medicine, anthropology, and gender studies—Kane explores American Catholic mysticism, setting it in the context of life after World War I and showing the war’s impact on American Christianity. Sister Thorn’s life, she reveals, marks the beginning of a transition among Catholics from a devotional, Old World piety to a newly confident role in American society.

Gluttony: The 7 Deadly Sins Audiobook

Gluttony: The 7 Deadly Sins

Author: Ashley Fontainne, Christian Vandergroot Narrator: Michael Cleary Release Date: July 2018

Is gluttony just being an overly eager eater, and is it related to being obese?  Gluttony comes in many forms, and many people don't realize they are partakers of this deadly sin. If they would, however, their lives would be more enjoyable, and their actions more selfless. How addicting is food? Is gluttony related to food alone, or does it go deeper than controlling eating habits?  Do the Scriptures talk about gluttony, or is it one of those things we made up after the Bible was put together?  How does God look at gluttony, and where are the boundaries?  These and many other questions will be answered in this book about one of the seven deadly sins. Gluttony has been mistaken for many things in the past. Some people judge others for being fat. Some are confused as to how far to go when indulging themselves in delicious foods. And others wonder if self-discipline in general is the underlying commandment that is related to the sin of gluttony. In this book, you will learn about topics such as: The very definition of gluttony, to describe boundaries and debunk the myths that are out thereThe five different ways to commit the sin of gluttony, according to the religious philosopher, Thomas AquinasA discussion about Jesus' first temptation in the desert and what we can learn from itExamples and stories from holy writ related to gluttony and a lack of self-control of bodily appetitesThe dangers of gluttony and extreme examples of people who raged or killed over foodHow to get better at controlling your bodily urgesWhy hunger or appetite is often related to complaining, and how to stop itHow to be forgiven, even when you have sinned atrociouslyGluttony is one of those sins that is often overlooked. However, understanding the sin, and the essence of it, can be life changing.
