God's Pursuit of Man: The Divine Conquest of the Human Heart
A. W. Tozer
This book formerly titled The DIVINE CONQUEST, was written as a sequel to THE PURSUIT OF GOD. Admitting to having been forced by inward pressure and an unbearable burden to write it, Tozer's aim was to assure believers that if they want to know the power of Christ they must be invaded by God. "This little book of the spiritual way has not been 'made' in any mechanical sense, it has been born out of inward necessity....The sight of the ...
Longleaf, Far as the Eye Can See: A New Vision of North America's Richest Forest
Beth Maynor Young
The University of North Carolina Press
Longleaf forests once covered 92 million acres from Texas to Maryland to Florida.

But logging, suppression of fire, destruction by landowners, and a complex web of other factors reduced those forests so that longleaf is now found only on 3 million acres. Fortunately, the stately tree is enjoying a ...
