This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Stephen Puleo, author of The Caning: The Assault That Drove America to Civil War.
One of the most shocking and provocative events in American history, the caning convinced the North and the South that the gulf between them was unbridgeable and that they could no longer discuss their vast differences of opinion regarding slavery on any reasonable level. The Caning: The Assault That Drove America to Civil War tells the incredible story of this transformative event. While Sumner eventually recovered after a lengthy convalescence, compromise had suffered a mortal blow. Moderate voices were drowned out completely; extremist views accelerated, became intractable, and locked both sides on a tragic collision course.
The caning had an enormous impact on the events that followed over the next four years: the meteoric rise of the Republican Party and Abraham Lincoln; the Dred Scott decision; the increasing militancy of abolitionists, notably John Brown’s actions; and the secession of the Southern states and the founding of the Confederacy. As a result of the caning, the country was pushed, inexorably and unstoppably, to war. Many factors conspired to cause the Civil War, but it was the caning that made conflict and disunion unavoidable five years later.

The trifecta—God's healing hand, the apostles' boldness of declaration and the disciples' loving generosity—resulted in an explosion of growth. As wonderful as this was, it also put a strain on the apostles in the form of caring for the disciples' real needs. This called for organization and duties assignment. The apostles would fill one roll while other men would see the the growing needs within the family.
One of the men chosen to meet those needs was Stephen. He was a good man, full of the Spirit and of wisdom. Unfortunately, those sterling character traits got him into deep trouble with the law! As his story unfolds we can only stand in awe of the conviction and love that permeated and dominated his heart.

One of the men chosen to meet the family's needs was Stephen. He was a good man, full of the Spirit and of wisdom. Unfortunately, those qualities got him into deep trouble with the law! False accusations and misrepresentations got him dragged to court in front of the Council (San Hedrin).
"Are these things true?" they demanded.
From there Stephen launched into a shared national history that proved two things: 1) Israel's leaders were always on the wrong side of following God, and 2) the physical presence of the tabernacle/temple had never kept Israel from abandoning God; and, it wasn't truly His "home."
As his conclusion unfolds we watch men so enraged that they commit murder--Stephen's murder. We can only stand in awe of the conviction and love that permeated and dominated his heart.
Noted author Stephen Halbrook joins us to discuss gun control during the Third Reich. During Hitler's rise, gun control became a major priority. Proposed as a means of protecting the populace, it soon became clear that gun control was a method of disarming Jews and other disfavored groups. This paved the way for The Final Solution and the rest is history. We explore modern parallels in America and elsewhere.
