Life on the Old Plantation in Ante-Bellum Days

by Irving E. Lowery

This volume is from 1911. A summary from the book's Preface:I have no apology to make, and no excuse to offer for writing this book, "Life on the Old Plantation in Ante-Bellum Days'. It is not the result of vanity, neither is it a desire for notoriety, that prompted me to write it. No, my reasons are higher, and my purposes are nobler. My only desire has been to do good. The religious element runs through the entire story. It has been a work of faith and a labor of love to me. I cannot express the pleasure I have had in sitting down, and recalling the incidents of my childhood and youth. In doing so, it has enabled me to live my life over again. I only hope that the reader will experience something of the same pleasure in reading the book that I have had in writing it. The "Brief Sketche...

God is moving in the hearts of powerful leaders in all the Colombian fighting factions, and peaceful meetings are now taking place in Havana, Cuba. Marxists guerillas, right-wing paramilitary, and the Colombian government each have their own agenda.

And that these battle-scarred leaders would give reporters and missionaries the opportunity to challenge some of their core philosophies and even pray with them? During the often intense negotiations, it becomes obvious that even the most hardened individuals can have a change of heart.
