The Theology Of The Sacraments And Other Papers

by Donald M. Baillie

Condition: Good+/None

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the front, back and spine of the cover boards. There is some wear to the edges of the cover boards also. There is some bumping to the corners of the cover boards. The previous owners signature is written on the inside of the front cover board, and his seal is affixed to the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. The binding is tight and solid.

"Of the pieces here presented only the short essay on the freedom of the will was written by my brother for publication, and thanks are due to the editors of The Scottish Journal of Theology for permission to reprint it. The others were delivered as lectures, and were found among my brother's papers only in the form of lecture notes, fully written out indeed, but written by his own hand with a running pen and quite unrevised. Their style is that of the spoken word, and the contrast between them and the single published essay will at once be apparent. The decision to publish posthumously what an author had himself witheld must always be a delicate and responsible one, but my scruples have been overborne by the many requests reaching me to make available the lectures on the theology of the sacraments which were delivered on the Moore Foundation in the Presbyterian Theological seminary, San Anselmo, California, in 1952...." - Preface from The Theology Of The Sacraments And Other Papers
