Then in the spring of 1988, Colin James, Bishop of Winchester and Chairman of the Church of England Liturgical Commission, and Alec Graham, Bishop of Newcastle and Chairman of the Doctrine Commission, invited me to prepare a paper for the House of Bishops the various theological issues connected with baptism, including confirmation, personal renewal, and reconciliation...." - Preface from The Mystery Of Baptism: In the Anglican Tradition

By Edward W. Jones

This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover. The corners are bumped. The pages are white and clear of any markings. "The title of this interesting and important book about the recent history of the involvement of the Episcopal Church in the ecumenical dialogues, which have been so much a part of our church's contemporary mission is a happy choice - "Joy In the Struggle." Is chapters by for leaders in this effort, John Burt, Arthur Vogel, William Weinhauer, and William Green document the "struggle" involved. Every one of the four dialogues discussed has had a low moment; just after consensus had seemed within reach it turned out to be illusory after all...." - Introduction from Joy in the Struggle: Personal Memoirs of Ecumenical Dialogue

The pages are yellowing, but are clear of any markings. "In 1948 three hundred and twenty-nine Anglican bishops came to Lambeth. They came from every continent. They thought it worth while to set aside urgent demands in their own dioceses and momentarily to close full engagement diaries. Their visit was accorded a great deal of publicity and was, temporarily at least, a matter of national interest. The outcome of their deliberation has, sometimes imperceptibly, influenced subsequent world events...." - Chapter One from The Bishops Come To Lambeth

Thomas Cranmer

By Diarmaid MacCulloch

This book is in very good condition. The dust jacket has little to no wear as well as the cover boards. The pages are yellowing but clear of any markings. "This book tells a man's life-story, and tries to do it as far as possible in sequence. It is selective in what it tells of the story, although readers may find that hard to believe in what has ended up as an extensive text. Certainly, it is not an impartial narrative: as I have written the tale, I have afforded myself the luxury of having opinions about the actions, motives and influence of one who attracted controversy and wildly polarized comment in his life and in the manner of his death. Ever since he was burned at the stake in Oxford in 1556, Thomas Cranmer's story has frequently been told in two completely contrasting ways: he has been portrayed as a hero or as a villain...." - Introduction from Thomas Cranmer: A Life

The pages are white, crisp and clear of any markings on both books. "One of the most notable features of the worldwide evangelical movement during the last ten to fifteen years has been the recovery of our temporarily mislaid social conscience. For approximately fifty years (c.1920-70) evangelicals were preoccupied with the task of defending the historic biblical faith against the attacks of liberalism, and reacting against its 'social gospel.' But now we are convinced that God has given us social as well as evangelistic responsibilities in his world. Yet the half-century of neglect has put us far behind in this area. We have a long way to catch up...." - Introduction from Volume I - Involvement: Being a Responsible Christian in a Non-Christian Society

By Diana L. Eck

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the cover. The pages are yellowed, but are clear of all markings. "The September 11, 2001, catastrophe brought to the United States a new consciousness of the transformation of American society that is the subject of this book. During the lazy summer months of 2001, as I spoke about a new religious America to audiences across the country, I found many people still surprised to learn about America's new religious diversity and relatively challenged to think about what this diversity means for America. Muslim voter registration drives? Hindu temples being built in the suburbs? Turbaned Sikhs going to court over job discrimination? These were relatively new considerations for most of us...." - Preface: After September 11 from A New Religious America: How a "Christian Country" Has Become the World's Most Religiously Diverse Nation

Anglican Essentials

By Geoge Egerton

"This is only the second time I have been asked to write a preference for a Canadian publication, and both have been in many places highly critical of the church in which I live and work. In the first case, the criticism was directed at the House of Bishops, a body of which I am the senior active member and president. In this case, criticism is directed at the Anglican Church of Canada more generally, but the same principle applies...." - Preface: Speaking The Truth In Love by The Most Reverend a Michael G.

"The faith and doctrine of Christianity are handed down to us in the context of a living fellowship. In its widest sense this fellowship is that of the Church Universal; to us as Anglicans the tradition is handed down through the Anglican Communion as a part of Western Christendom. This involves for us two consequences. The first is that in interpreting our own tradition we must give attention to the background of the universal tradition of Christendom. The second is that in discussion of doctrine today we are bound to consider its historical sources and the authority which these should carry...." - Chapter One from Doctrine In The Church Of England

The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "The churches of the Anglican Communion owe their particular expression of Christianity to the historic church in Britain and England, to which land the Christian faith came some time in the second century. The new religion spread rapidly from its center at Jerusalem, and the persecutions to which it was subjected had not only the effect of making it stronger but also of dispersing it more rapidly. Britain had been conquered by the Romans in 44 A.D. and Roman rule meant that the trade routes were kept open. Perhaps traders from Gaul or merchants from the Mediterranean first told the story of the Cross to the uncouth Britons...." - from The Expansion of the Anglican Communion

The Great Church In Captivity

By Steven Runciman

This book is in good condition. There is some wear on the font, back, edges, and spine of the cover. There is also some bumping, and fraying on the cover. The pages are white and clear of any markings. "Of all the roads that a historian may tread none passes through more difficult country than that of religious history. To a believer religious truths are eternal. The doctrine that he preaches and accepts gives expression to their everlasting validity. To him the historian who seeks to discover and explain why the doctrine should have appeared at a particular moment of time seems guilty of unwarranted determinism. But Revealed Religion cannot escape from the bounds of time; for the Revelation must have occurred at a particular moment. The Christian religion, above all others, is concerned with the relations of time and eternity. Its central doctrine, the Incarnation, is not only an eternal truth but an event in history; it is a bridge between the temporal and the eternal. The institutions of Christianity, however divine their inspiration, have been ordered and governed by men and are affected by the temporal processes to which man is subject. The articles of faith, whatever their transcendental validity, have been spread around the world by the agency of man, their transmission has been affected by changes in worldly circumstances and outlook. It may be that man is continually refreshed by the messages from on high. It may be that there is a divine ordering of history. But the historian himself is mortal, restricted by the limitations of temporality; and he must have the modesty to know his limitations. His business is to tell the story and to make it, as best as he can, intelligible to humanity...." - Preface from The Great Church In Captivity: A Study Of The Patriarchate Of Constantinople From The Eve Of The Turkish Conquest To The Greek War Of Independence

The Western Fathers

By Sulpicus Severus, Paulinus The Deacon, Possidus, Bishop Of Calma, Hilary, Bishop Of Arles, Constantinus Of Lyons (Translated and Edited by F. R. Hoare)

This book is in good condition. The cover has some wear on the front, back, spine and edges. The corners have some bumping. The pages are slightly yellowed, but clear of any markings. "The biographical writings in this volume are the primary sources for the Lives of the five Western Fathers with whom they deal. If the purpose of this series were to convert the contemporary pictures of the makers of Christendom into biographies of the modern type, each of them would have to be pulled to pieces, supplemented from other sources, interpreted in the light of later knowledge and reconstructed on quite a different plan. Since in actual fact the purpose of the series is largely to enable the twentieth-century reader to see these makers of Christendom as far as possible as their contemporaries saw them, it would seem that the task of the translator is to preserve as far as possible the feeling and manner of the original, and that the task of the editor is far as possible to put the twentieth-century reader in possession of the knowledge of the setting of the Lives which the contemporary readers had and which the writers took for granted...." - Preface from The Western Fathers: Being The Lives of Martin of Tours, Ambrose, Augustine of Hippo, Hororatus of Aries

"This book is based mainly on the Hewett Lectures on Early Alexandrian Christianity, delivered in 1962 at Union Theological Seminary, New York, and at Andover Newton Theological School, and at the Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The substratum of the book consists of the words then spoken in the lecture room., though with revisions and enlargements. To this spoken discourse I have ventured to append annotations which in a few instances may seem to go ill with a text addressed to a more general audience, but may nevertheless, I hope, be found to contain something of interest for those readers for whom the stuff of a book consists in the notes and marginalia...." - Preface from Early Christian Thought And The Classical Tradition: Studies in Justin Clement, and Origen

This book was donated by the author to the Saint Ninian's Chapter Library. "Sermons that are brought together in a volume embody a new motive, over and above the direct aim with which each was separately preached. They profess that they are united together by more than the mere cover of the book. They claim to suggest a single impression; to communicate a single and paramount idea; to convey a single supposition; to witness to a single source; to promote a single interest; to work under a single direction; to tend towards a single conclusion. They trust that their partial and piecemeal treatment of their subject will correct itself by help of juxtaposition; so that they may lose their unhappy appearance, as loose and sketchy fragments, and may visibly be seen to cohere into a valid and substantial consistency...." - Preface from Creed And Character
