124257: The Cotton Patch Gospel: Hebrews & the General Epistles The Cotton Patch Gospel: Hebrews & the General Epistles
By Clarence Jordan / Smyth & Helwys Publishing, Inc

The Cotton Patch Gospel by Koinonia Farm founder Clarence Jordan, recasts the stories of Jesus and the letters of Paul and Peter into the language and culture of the mid-20th century South. Born out of the Civil Rights struggle, these now classic paraphrases of much of the New Testament bring the far-away places of Scripture closer to home: Gainsville, Selma, Birmingham, Atlanta, Washington, D.C.

As Jordan once wrote, "While there have been many excellent translations of the Scriptures into modern English, they still have left us stranded in some far-away land in the long-distant past. We need to have the good news come to us not only in our own tongue but in our own time. We want to be participants in the faith, not merely spectators"

More than a translation, The Cotton Patch Gospel continues to make clear the startling relevance of Scripture for today. These editions come complete with new Forewords and a new Introduction by Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller.

This volume--Hebrews and the General Epistles--contains Hebrews, James, 1 & 2 Peter, 1, 2 & 3 John, and Jude.

191668: Cotton Patch for the Kingdom: Clarence Jordan's   Demonstration Plot at Koinonia Farm Cotton Patch for the Kingdom: Clarence Jordan's Demonstration Plot at Koinonia Farm
By Ann Louise Coble / Herald Press

When Clarence Jordan left seminary and started Koinonia Farm in Amemricus, Georgia, in the early 1940s, his living the biblical dream did no go unnoticed. Koinonia Farm was dedicated to pacifism when World War II raged, to racial equality in the sourthern heartland, and to community living in the midst of American individualism. In this new interpretation and analysis of Clarence Jordan, Ann Louise Coble discovers a life and a community wholly connected to Jesus Christ, with a vision to create a "demonstration plot for the kingdom of God."

329738: Cotton Tales: Life On the Edge of A Cotton Patch Cotton Tales: Life On the Edge of A Cotton Patch
By Dr. M. Lynn Reddick / Wesscott Marketing

On the south Georgia farm where I grew up in the 1940s and 50s, the work ethic was so strong that any leisure time I had was generally spent straightening buckets of bent nails or, since it involved sitting down, shucking corn and shelling peas. Whenever possible, though, I'd sail over the fence and through the woods to my Pa and Granny's back porch, where, as the sun set over the cotton fields, they'd regale me with stories that stirred my interests, stimulated my imagination, and always kept me laughing. Now, all these years later, my wife and I live in that same house and sit on that same back porch. Frequently, our five-year-old grandson finds me rocking there. These tales are life experiences birthed in the warp and woof of daily living, and now it's time to share some of these same stories with you.
