The pages are white, crisp and clean of all markings. "Anglicans," Comments Stephen Sykes in his introduction to these essays "have been seriously exercised about their claim to authority for at least some forty years." An archbishop of Canterbury is better placed than most to appreciate the degree to which this issue is confronting us today. It lies at the heart of so many discussions between churches, as well as of some of the most controversial and sensitive matters which face us all. The nature and exercise odf authority will be a vital issue at the 1988 Lambeth Conference...." - Foreword from Authority in the Anglican Communion: Essays Presented to Bishop John Howe

"It seems presumptuous for any one, and especially a member of the laity, to attempt to add to that which has already been said and written upon the spiritual life of the Christian priest. Only the overwhelming importance of the subject for the work of the Church, and the fact that in the pressure of outward life we need again and again to be reminded of those unchangeable realities of the inward life which alone give any value to our active work can justify this. But these certain truths are surely sufficient reason for considering once again the special nature of the priest's life of prayer; what it means, what it is for, and why it matters so much...." - from The Parish Priest And The Life Of Prayer

During the interval which followed some of the additional notes were rewritten and others were added. In all else the book practically unchanged. In The Incarnate Lord (1928) an attempt was made to relate the revelation of God in Christ to current philosophy. But now another problem presented itself. What if the Gospel becomes obscured by our presuppositions and preoccupations, so that we neither see the scope of its application nor suffer it to speak for itself. The conviction grew that this danger was present in the theological situation of today. In particular it became clear that certain aspects of the New Testament were not receiving the attention which was due to due to them...." - Preface from The Common Life In The Body Of Christ

This is not unusual-the outlines of our lich-gate, with its turned-up eaves and green leaves behind it, must be familiar through pictures to thousands of people who have never been here in person. The Little Church Around the Corner is a household name. It is the church with the beautiful Bridal Altar where romantic young couples flock to get married. It is the official place of worship of hundreds of actors. It is the historic shrine where one goes to see stained-glass windows commemorating the face of Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, John Drew, Richard Mansfield; and bronze tablets to Stephen Vincent Benet, Will Rogers, O. Henry. It is the haven where the hungry were fed in the days of the breadline. For the last third of a century it has been my life...." - Foreword from My Little Church Around The Corner

For whereas it was the expectation of many, who wished not well unto our Scion That upon the setting of that bright Occidental Star, Queen Elizabeth of most happy memory, some thick and palpable clouds of darkness would so have overshadowed this Land, that men should have been in doubt which way they were to walk; and that it should hardly be known, who was to direct the unsettled State; the appearance of Your Majesty, as of the Sun in his strength, instantly dispelled those supposed and surmised mists, and gave unto all that were well affected exceeding cause of comfort; especially when we beheld the Government established in Your Highness, and Your hopeful Seed, by an undoubted Title, and this also accompanied with peace and tranquillity at home and abroad...." - The Holy Bible: Containing The Old And The New Testaments And The Apocrypha Translated Out Of The Original Tongues: And With The Former Translations Diligently Compared And Revised By His Majesty's Special Command

"The Newman of the popular imagination is the Newman of later years: the defender of his faith in the Apologia pro Vita Sua; the Dean of English converts; the saintly old man in the robes of a cardinal. When he died in 1890 his name was already a legend, and the legend has endured because his effect on his time has been surpassed by his legacy to generations that followed. The reforming movement that he had once helped to inaugurate in the English Church did not end with his separation from it. His justification in the Apologia of his final beliefs pleaded the case for all English converts, improved their position and increased their numbers. His opposition of an intelligent intellectual freedom in religious study, which brought him into conflict with individuals in the Roman Catholic hierarchy, have survived him in their influence on Catholic thinking...." - Foreword from Journey into Faith:The Anglican Life Of John Henry Newman

The edges of the cover boards are worn and the corners are bumped.The pages are yellowed and tanned but free of any markings. "The texts gathered together in the present volume provide a cross-section of the religious life of the eighth century difficult to parallel elsewhere. Two biographies of the archbishops who initiated the missionary enterprise on the Continent show how their labours transformed the face of Europe within the space of a single generation, whilst the life of one of their disciples illustrates how their work was continued. The correspondence of St. Boniface bring into closer focus the kind of difficulties they encountered and introduces us into the homely atmosphere of their friends, relatives, and well-wishers. Two further biographies, one of the abbot of the first monastery to be founded in Germany, the other of the abbess Leoba, give an illuminating picture of the beginnings of monastic life amidst barbarian surroundings and throw light on the characters and attainments of the men and women who embarked on this hazardous adventure. Finally, the description of Willibald's travels through Italy, the Greek archipelago and the Holy Land show the devotion, allied to a spirit of adventure, which animated these early pilgrims and missionaries. Bishops, priests, monks, nuns and simple clerics flit through these pages and tell us their unvarnished tale, which, slight though it may be in certain cases, deeply impresses by contrast with the grim background against which it unfold...." - General Introduction from The Anglo-Saxon Missionaries in Germany

"In May 1946 the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland received an overture from the Presbytery of Stirling and Dunblane, where it had been initiated by the Reverend G.S. Hendry, recommending that a translation of the Bible be made in the language of the present day, inasmuch as the language of the Authorized Version, already archaic when it was made, had now become even more definitely archaic and less generally understood. The General Assembly resolved to make an approach to other Churches, and, as a result, delegates of the Church of England, the Church of Scotland, and the Methodist, Baptist, and Congregational Churches me t in conference in October. They recommended that the work should be undertaken; that a completely new translation should be made, rather than a revision, such as had earlier been contemplated by the University Presses of Oxford and Cambridge; and that the translators should be free to employ a contemporary idiom rather than reproduce the traditional 'biblical' English...." - Preface To The New English Bible

"Greek, Sir, is like lace; every man gets as much of it as he can." This remark seems originally to have been regarded as among the more penetrating of Samuel Johnson's obiter dicta, though at present it is hard "get" it to believe that it ever made much sense. Nowadays Greek is like lace in that few men care whether they "get" any or not. However, a little rummaging in the debris of history reveals that not so very long ago a knowledge of Greek, like the possession of an assortment of lace cuffs and jabots, was an indispensable mark of a gentleman. Things went from bad to worse, as they inevitably seem to do, so that by the middle of the last century only the clergy were making any effort to uphold Dr. Johnson's standards, and most of them had given up lace...." - Introduction from The Language of the New Testament

"The publication of a new translation of the Book of Concord has been made desirable, if not necessary, by a number of considerations. In the first place, in so far as every translation is an interpretation, the tremendous advances must be taken into account which have been made during the last generation in our understanding of the literary and historical backgrounds of the documents included in this book. In the second place, allowance must be made for the literary tastes of modern readers for whom the English style of earlier generations seems heavy, cumbersome, and sometimes almost unintelligible. In the third place, the needs of those who may use the volume must be considered by furnishing them with quick and easy reference, in both the introductions to several documents and the footnotes, to persons, events, literary citations, and other tools essential to understanding and study...."
