Long DescriptionHow have millions of American Christians come to measure spiritual progress in terms of their financial status and physical well-being? How has the movement variously called Word of Faith, Health and Wealth, Name It and Claim It, or simply prosperity gospel come to dominate much of our contemporary religious landscape? Kate Bowler's Blessed is the first book to fully explore the origins, unifying themes, and major figures of a burgeoning movement that now claims millions of followers in America. Bowler traces the roots of the prosperity gospel: from the touring mesmerists, metaphysical sages, pentecostal healers, business oracles, and princely prophets of the early 20th century; through mid-century positive thinkers like Norman Vincent Peale and revivalists like Oral Roberts and Kenneth Hagin; to today's hugely successful prosperity preachers. Bowler focuses on such contemporary figures as Creflo Dollar, pastor of Atlanta's 30,000-member World Changers Church International; Joel Osteen, known as "the smiling preacher," with a weekly audience of seven million; T. D. Jakes, named by Time magazine one of America's most influential new religious leaders; Joyce Meyer, evangelist and women's empowerment guru; and many others. At almost any moment, day or night, the American public can tune in to these preachers-on TV, radio, podcasts, and in their megachurches-to hear the message that God desires to bless them with wealth and health. Bowler offers an interpretive framework for scholars and general readers alike to understand the diverse expressions of Christian abundance as a cohesive movement bound by shared understandings and common goals.

You  may have noticed that we were off line for a while here and there over the past couple days.

We had planned one short outage and posted information about it in advance. But after installing the new RAID system we still had to move all of the data off of the old system over to the new system.

Each time we got data off of one of the hard drives, we had to shut down the system for a short time to physically remove the old drive. We had to do this several times because we had several old drives on the old RAID system and they could only be moved one at a time.

We tried to keep the down time to a minimum but it still took a little longer than expected after the last drive was removed and swapped out. There were a couple unexpted issues relating to that last hard drive.

Fortunately, now with the new RAID in place, we can HOT SWAP drives. This means that when we change out the hard drives we don't have to turn the power off.

We still have a couple internal hard drives that do require a power off if we need to spaw them but it is unlikely we will need to do that unless one dies. The old drives didn't die, we just needed to expand the drive space with larger hard drives so we went to the hot swap system to plan for the future.
