Blackball

BLACKBALL (P)
$18.00
Though situated in what is traditionally considered the heart of Hoosier basketball country, perhaps no small city can claim Richmond, Indiana's history with baseball's vaunted Negro Leagues. For decades, hundreds of players, all barred from the major leagues on account of their skin color, graced the Richmond ball diamonds, and utterly dazzled the locals with their play. Many of the players would end up in the pantheon of baseball legends. Grab yourself some peanuts and Cracker Jack and enjoy this untold history!

Don't Cry, Chiisai, Don't Cry

Don't Cry, Chiisai, Don't Cry
$7.97

At Earlham College in 1942, Ruthanna Farlow and her friends felt they had something of a nirvana, a place that others only dreamed of. It was a time of war, but Earlham was a place of Quakerly kindness. Love was for all, not a select few. This sort of spirit came as no shock to Ruthanna. She was from the southern Indiana town of Paoli. Its population was about 3,000if you counted the dogs and cats. The town had been settled by Quakers and dominated by the Penn love ethic. No one had ever specifically said to her, “All people are the same.” She just assumed it to be true because if you loved your neighbor, how could it be otherwise? That same spirit of tolerance would bring a young Japanese American man into her life. Despite it being only months since the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Earlham College had opened its doors to Japanese American students from the West Coast, students who would have otherwise been interned. Friendships with these students would be encouraged. Interracial dating, however, was another matter. Marriage? Illegal in Indiana and most other states.

Earlham College: A History 1847-1997

Earlham College: A History 1847-1997
$35.00
Earlham College was founded by Indiana Quakers in 1847 for the "guarded religious education of the children of Friends." Today it is among the handful of nationally ranked liberal arts colleges still retaining a strong religious identity. In the last half century, Earlham has become a national institution. Unlike many other denominational colleges, it has preserved and strengthened its sectarian identity: becoming home to the first Quaker theological seminary in the world, instituting a system of consensus governance, and attracting well-known Quaker faculty. Thomas D. Hamm tells the story of this remarkable institution with the grace and insight that have distinguished his previous writing on the Quakers.

Good Punishment?

GOOD PUNISHMENT? (P)
$22.00
New/Used: New
More than 2 million persons occupy America's prisons and jails today -- the highest per capita incarceration rate in U.S. history. With just 6 percent of the world's population, the United States now holds 25 percent of its prisoners. At what social cost do we build and fill more prisons?

In Good Punishment? James Samuel Logan critiques the American obsession with imprisonment as punishment, calling it "retributive degradation" of the incarcerated. His analysis draws on both salient empirical data and material from a variety of disciplines -- social history, anthropology, law and penal theory, philosophy of religion -- as he uncovers the devastating social consequences (both direct and collateral) of imprisonment on such a large, unprecedented scale.

A distinctive contribution of this book lies in its development of a Christian social ethics of "good punishment" embodied as a politics of "healing memories" and "ontological intimacy." Logan earnestly explores how Christians can best engage with the real-life issues and concerns surrounding the American practice of imprisonment.

Prophetic Healing

Prophetic Healing
$18.00

Can mystics be political activists? Can our encounter with God inspire us to be agents of social transformation? Through the lens of Howard Thurman's life and mystical theology, Bruce Epperly explores what it means to join prophetic ministry with personal and social healing. Despite the racism he experienced throughout his life, Thurman joined his spiritual experiences with a commitment to racial and social healing. He was a prophet, challenging racism and social injustice. He was also a healer who experienced God's presence in oppressor as well as oppressed. Thurman's holistic spirituality provides a pathway for social healing in a time characterized by polarization, incivility, and hatred. Thurman reminds us that we can both picket and pray, and protest injustice while working toward reconciliation.

The spiritual exercises at the end of each chapter draw on Howard Thurman's work to challenge us--if we practice these exercises seriously and with commitment--to develop a new view of our opponents. They help us toward loving our enemies, and becoming the "friendly world of friendly persons" that Thurman described.
