Morality, as secularists know, does not require a deity. Blind faith, as atheists know, often leads to hatred, violence and war. Taking myth and scripture as literal accounts of history, as scientists know, borders on the nonsensical. If religion is to be credible for modern, educated, sophisticated people, there has to be more. And there is. In LOVE, WISDOM, AND GOD, Dr. Andrew Cort demonstrates that in their deepest and most important sense, these are internal, psychological stories. Through allegory and symbol they weave the tale of a soul that has descended into material life and must now do the necessary work to find its way home again. This inner journey, the basis for all 'Sacred Quest' legends, has been called "Persephone's Return to Olympus", "The Return to the Promised Land", "The Quest for the Holy Grail", and many other names. In other words, Mythology and Scripture can be read as manuals for spiritual initiation. When this is understood: The underlying unity of all our traditions is revealed. The atheist objection that the stories are irrational becomes irrelevant. The justification for religious hatred and war disappears.

Challenging assumptions about a distinctive southern military tradition, Rod Andrew demonstrates that southern military schools were less concerned with preparing young men for actual combat than with instilling in their students broader values of honor, patriotism, civic duty, and virtue. Southerners had a remarkable tendency to reconcile militarism with republicanism, Andrew says, and following the Civil War, the Lost Cause legend further strengthened the link in southerners' minds between military and civic virtue.

Military training was a prominent feature of higher education across the nineteenth-century South. Virginia Military Institute and the Citadel, as well as land-grant schools such as Texas A & M, Auburn, and Clemson, organized themselves on a military basis, requiring their male students to wear uniforms, join a corps of cadets, and subject themselves to constant military discipline. Several southern black colleges also adopted a military approach. Challenging assumptions about a distinctive "southern military tradition," Rod Andrew demonstrates that southern military schools were less concerned with preparing young men for actual combat than with instilling in their students broader values of honor, patriotism, civic duty, and virtue. Southerners had a remarkable tendency to reconcile militarism with republicanism, Andrew says, and following the Civil War, the Lost Cause legend further strengthened the link in southerners' minds between military and civic virtue. Though traditionally black colleges faced struggles that white schools did not, notes Andrew, they were motivated by the same conviction that powered white military schools-the belief that a good soldier was by definition a good citizen.
