Abstract:

"Famously referrred to as "that Devil" by Union general William T. Sherman, Nathan Bedford Forrest is remembered by history as a fearsome yet skilled Confederate leader whose reputation has been marred by accusations of cold-blooded murder and racism. However, many may be surprised to know that the former slave trader and early member of the Ku Klux Klan eventually dedicated his life to God and became a staunch advocate for African Americans. This spiritual biography follows Forrest from his childhood through his conversion to Christianity in 1875, revealing a humble side of the enigmatic historical figure. Focusing on the roles various individuals played in bringing the former general to Christ, details from Forrest's final years document his radical transformation from a ruthless warrior to a pious Christian"--Page 4 of cover.
