On Hallowed Ground from the Author: Robert M. Poole. On Hallowed Ground opens with the long-delayed funeral of four servicemen, brought home for final honors at Arlington National Cemetery almost forty years after they disappeared in Vietnam. To understand how this tradition of extraordinary care for our war dead began, Robert Poole traces the founding of Arlington Cemetery on what had been the family plantation of Robert E. Lee. After resigning his commission in the U.S. Army, Lee left Arlington to command the Army of Northern Virginia. Arlington, strategic to the defense of Washington, D.C., became a U.S. Army headquarters and a cemetery for indigent Civil War soldiers before Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton made it the new national cemetery. Initially, there was no honor attached to being buried at Arlington; this began to change after the war, as the Union gathered thousands of hastily-buried casualties from nearby battlefields and reinterred them at Arlington, where they received the honors of a grateful nation. But the rites, rituals, and reverence associated with Arlington evolved over the next hundred years, paid through the blood of those who fought in the Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Cold War, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraq and Afghanistan. Robert Poole paints an intimate, behind-the-scenes picture of the history and day-to-day operations of Arlington National Cemetery.

On Hallowed Ground from the Author: Wanda Burse. On Hallowed Ground was inspired by the everyday sights and sounds that encompass life on earth. Too often we pass by the familiar, the mundane, the common, with hardly a thought. All the poems in this collection have come from sitting with creation - sometimes for brief moments and sometimes for extended periods. As I sat with creation, inviting it into my soul, savouring its life and vitality, the words came. These poems are offered as the feast of those savoured moments.

Hallowed Ground from the Author: Stephen Burgard. "Makes a lively and convincing case that a pragmatic American way in religion is arising in response to challenges unmet by any other public or private entity". -- Jack Miles, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of God: A Biography Why can't we practice religion in a way that doesn't divide community and country? The free exercise of religion is central to the First Amendment, but increasing activism of religious conservatives has raised new concerns about separation of church and state. Hallowed Ground compellingly argues that the solution lies in making better use of an emerging "moral middle", a flourishing group of Americans who do share the concern of religious conservatives about a crisis of values, but who are put off by what they perceive as intolerance and prejudice. Mr. Stephen Burgard, a journalist with an interest in the cultural impact of religious values, goes beyond the predictable collision of ideologues. He sets the provocative debate in the context of mainstream America's search for a new and more meaningful way of expressing religious values in a multiethnic society. This is a refreshingly unbiased book that will engage all readers interested in religion, and professionals in humanistic psychology, political science, sociology, ethics, and clinical psychology.

Hallowed Ground from the Author: Cindy Ziperman. I was on the cross I was on the cross, and you took me down You have trampled my blood Lift me up Lift me high for all to see For vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. HIS DEADLY WOUND WILL BE HEALED! Nebuchadnezzar, ruler over Babylon, "Thou art the head of gold." Ruler = head - for head in the above means ruler according to the Strong's Concordance. Rev. 13, "(v. 1) And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads [or 7 rulers] and ten horns . . . (v. 2) the dragon gave him his power, and his SEAT, and great authority. And I saw one [or the "first," esp. in coming] of his heads AS it were wounded to death [the "first" in coming who will take "priority" of the 7 leaders/heads will be as it were wounded to death. In other words, he doesn't die just his leadership/head. Also, what is John talking about in Rev. 13:2 . . . the beast's rule hence his seat! Netanyahu, the first in coming of the 7 leaders has temporarily lost his seat.] . . . and his deadly wound was healed." Rev. 17:10 speaks of the rise and fall of kings. Verse 11 continues speaking of the Antichrist, "And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition." At the time he was prophesied over to be the Antichrist, Benjamin Netanyahu was in office.
