"The important documents that follow having been long out of print, it seemed desirable to reissue them in one cover. The Papal Letter is reprinted by kind permission of Messrs. Burns, Oates and Washbourne, the original publishers of the authorised English translation. It is hoped that this reissue will be useful. It must not, however, be forgotten that the official texts of both Letter and Answer are the Latin ones, which are published as a companion volume to this reissue. The Latin text of the Papal Letter reproduces that originally published in England, to which the Archbishop's Letter was a reply...." - Note from Anglican Orders The Bull Of His Holiness Leo XIII September 13th, 1896 And The Answers Of The Archbishops Of England March 29th 1897

They have been given from on high precisely to help the spiritual progress of those who study them in a spirit of piety. For, as the Vatican Council teaches, 'reason illumined by faith, if it seeks earnestly, piously and wisely, does attain, under God, to a certain and most helpful knowledge of mysteries...'"...." - Foreword from Liturgical Piety

Its theory is the Sacred Writings of the Apostles and Evangelists of Jesus Christ; its practice, the life of the Christian. The Christian profession is not now what it once was. It has become secular and sectarian. The members of the church of Christ were formerly called "saints," "elect of God," "a chosen generation," "a royal priesthood," "a peculiar people." Now they are called "Churchmen," "Dissenters," "Romanists," "Protestants," "Episcopalians," "Presbyterians," "Independents," "Baptists," "Methodists," &c. &c. &c. The church was once "a spiritual house," whose members were addressed as "justified," "sanctified," "adopted," and "saved." It was a "holy nation" whose citizens had their citizenship in heaven...." - Introduction from Christian Baptism: With Its Antecedents And Consequents

Others were heard from the lips of my people on three different continents, little people, to be sure, but people with big hearts and great resolution. And some are just daydreams I have lived through while scanning the pages of Israel's memorable history, pages that lay forgotten in little shuls, in little libraries...." - A Word To The Reader from Lost Legends of Israel

This purpose could by no means have been accomplished without the aid of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America in securing, and the Protestant Federation of France in procuring, precise data such as are especially to be found in Part II of this volume. Particularly is the gratitude of the compiler due to the generous interest and valuable help of such eminent French Protestants as Dean Emile Doumerge, D.D.,of the Theological Faculty of Montauban,...." - Preface from Handbook Of French and Belgian Protestantism

By Massey H. Shepherd, Jr.

The previous owners name is written on the title page and affixed on the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. "The six chapters of this book are sketches depicting typical scenes of the celebration of the Holy Communion in different periods of Christian history. Each period has impressed upon the rite its own special emphasis and meaning, its own taste in ceremonial and artistic adornment. Yet the service remains throughout the ages essentially the same as that which the apostles received from the Lord Jesus at the Last Supper. It is the unity of spirit amidst the diversity of gifts- "at all times and in all places" - that constitutes the theme of this book. For the reader who will take his place with sympathy and imagination among the worshippers in theses several services, it is hoped that he will find his own participation in our glorious heritage of Common Prayer enlarged and enriched in meaning, and his consciousness of his place in the communion of saints deepened and broadened in perspective.

The pages are unmarked but beginning to yellow and tan. The binding is tight and solid. "The Religious Life is not merely a devout life given to much churchgoing. It is that, but it is much more than that. The word religious is said to mean "under bond" or "under rule." Religious are men and women who have bound themselves by a vow to God to live their lives in a community under a rule according to three Evangelical Counsels. How can such a life be justly considered strange or eccentric or selfish? It is no more than an attempt to live the Christian life in its fullness and perfection." - Chapter 1.

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed, but clear of any markings. "We are in the midst of a theological revolution. It is not that the present well-known attempts to rethink and restate the Christian faith are entirely original, either in approach or in content; a good deal of all this has long been in learned books and in seminary lectures. But now more than ever, the process is going on in public. A definitive point - both revealing as to the long course of private dialogue in this regard and causing more public expression - was the recent publication of Honest to God by John A.T. Robinson, Bishop of Woolwhich. Since its appearance, and innumerable responses in books, reviews, articles, and sermons (affirmative, negative or qualified), hundreds of thousands of people, inside and outside the Church, have been affected by learning about this long and grueling revolution in Christian thinking and by reading various attempts to check or suppress it....." - Preface and a Note on Method from A Time For Christian Candor

"This volume does not form part of the series entitled 'The form of the Servant', although I hope that it may be regarded as further illustrating the principles of biblical interpretation there adopted. In the course of the past century there has been amongst Anglicans a periodic discussion of matters connected with baptism and confirmation. During the second half of this period, however, a number of new factors have been contributing to the development of a fresh situation. Amongst these are the growing recognition that both Jewish and more ancient backgrounds are all-important and secondly the recovery of early liturgical texts amongst which The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus stands out. My own interest was first aroused by F. Gavin's small, but learned, book on The Jewish antecedents of The Christian Sacraments (1928), which showed a close continuity between Jewish and Christian forms of initiation and which, in that respect, is still highly relevant. For example, it makes clear the strongly Jewish background of the Hippolytan rites, and even a substantial identity of rubrics....." - Foreword from Confirmation: It's Place In The Baptismal Mystery

In 1607, a certain Madame de Charmoisy, whose husband was an ambassador of the Duke of Savoy and a relative of St. Francis, visited Annecy to attend a lawsuit, and while there placed herself under his spiritual direction. When she returned to court he gave her a series of written spiritual instructions, which he had begun to compile as early as 1602, for the guidance of persons seeking to live a devout life in the world. These instructions were shown to Pere Jean Fourier of the Society of Jesus, who considered them 'a treasure of devotion', and so valuable that he strongly urged St. Francis to have them printed, with the result that the first edition, edited by St. Francis, was issued in 1609 under the title Introduction a la Vie Devote...."

"The four books of the New Testament called 'gospels' only make full sense if the many stories and incidents in them are related to the central theme: who Jesus was, what he achieved and how this affected everyday life. A modern reader does not have to accept the beliefs of the first Christians, but without some awareness of what they did believe about Jesus of Nazareth much of the gospel material will seem incomprehensible, or at best a mere collection of legends...." - Introduction from The Illustrated Life of Jesus Christ

""When answering my letters, requesting information about their communities, several Superiors have asked why, as a Roman Catholic, I should be sufficiently interested in Anglican religious orders to think it worth while to write a book about them! Very much the same surprise has been expressed by some of my co-religionists when I mentioned the work on which I was engaged. So I explained that the subject is one which has attracted me for nearly half a century, ever since I was a youth of fifteen and chanced to pick up a copy of The Life of Father Ignatius, O.S.B., The Monk of Llanthony by the Baroness de Bertouch (London, 1940) - a strange introduction to the monastic life! Since then this interest has grown, rather than decreased. It was revived definitely about fifteen years ago when I added a long introductory chapter, dealing with religious communities in the Church of England, to The Benedictines of Caldey (London, 1940). Then one day it struck me that it was high time that somebody wrote an up-to-date history of Anglican religious communities...." - Foreword from The Call of the Cloister: Religious Communities And Kindred Bodies In The Anglican Communion

The pages are crisp, white and clear of any markings. "For nearly two millenia, the Bible has been the cardinal text for Judaism and Christianity. Its stories and characters are part of both the repertoire of Western literature and the vocabulary of educated women and men. It is, however, more than a collection of ancient tales. Even before a canonical list of books considered sacred scripture or holy writ was established, the writings we now call the Bible were considered normative: they laid down the essential principles of how human beings should deal with God and with each other. Te practice of quoting from, an alluding to, earlier texts as authoritative is found within the Bible itself and has continued unabated in subsequent Jewish and Christian writings. At the same time, the Bible has also been formative; subsequent generations of believers have seen themselves as descended from, and in continuity with, those to whom God had spoken and for whom he had acted definitively in the past, and the recital of those words and events has been instrumental in shaping the religious communities of succeeding generations. The Bible has thus had an immeasurable influence on Judaism and Christianity, on the cultures of which they have formed a part, and on all those traditions in some ways derived from them, such as Islam...." - Introduction from The Oxford Companion to the Bible

One of these has regarded the Lutheran Church as a new communion dating from Luther's days. The reformers, however, were not innovators. Rather they sought to restore the church to its original foundations.

It will also serve as a foundation for further studies of the denominations which emerged from the colonial Church of England, the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States...." - Preface from Colonial Anglicanism in North America
