August 2008: CES Graduate has book published. Congratulations to CES grad Gene Howard for the publishing of his new book, Patterson for Alabama (University of Alabama Press). As Gene describes it: “The book covers two startling events in Southern history: (1) The cleanup of Phenix City, the most wicked city in the United States. Localcongregations banded together to effect a legal assault  on the local mob, and (2) The civil rights revolution, led by MLK, that was made possible through the courage of local black churches. Liberals contend that Christian churches should not get involved in politics. If that were true, these kinds of radical changes would not have taken place. Of course, we know that liberals do not want Christian people to become active in public affairs. It is the most damnable lie that Satan has ever told.” Gene earned his Master of Theological Studies from CES earlier this year.

August 2008: CES faculty member has book published. Congratulations to Dr. Roger D. Duke for co-authoring/editing a new book, John A. Broadus: A Living Legacy (B&H Academic). This is a volume of ten academic essays on the lasting impact and influences of John A. Broadus, one of the four founding professors of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The book contains chapters by David S. Dockery, Timothy George of Beeson Divinity School, Tom Nettles of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Rick Melick of Golden Gate Baptist Seminary, and CES faculty member, Roger D. Duke. Dr. Duke notes that this book can be used as a Homiletics textbook, Biography of Broadus, and Baptist Church History.

August 2008: CES Graduate has book published. Congratulations to CES grad Dr. Douglas E. Batson. His new book, Registering the Human Terrains: A Valuation of Cadastre, has been published by National Defense Intelligence College Press. Dr. Batson’s book is the culmination of his research while he was an Office of the Director of National Intelligence Research Fellow in 2006-2007. The manuscript was originally prepared to fulfill part of the requirements for Research Fellows. The book offers specifics on how to assist developing countries in registering property so the owners have security of tenure. Property rights are at the heart of many problems in dealing with refugees and in turn with governmental stability. Its publication offers an example of the variety of applied intelligence research carried out by the Research Fellows. His book is free, and may be viewed on-line or downloaded at http://ndic.edu/press/10279.htm. Dr. Batson earned his Doctor of Religious Education with CES in 1995.
