"The manuscript of the present work was in all essentials completed in July 1939. Some steps towards publication were then taken; but the war brought inevitable delays. 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

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

This can be done all the more easily and fruitfully if to the knowledgeof languages be jopined a real skill in literary criticism of the same text...." - Preface from The New American Bible: Translated from the Original Languages with Critical Use of All the Ancient Sources

"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 Anglo-Saxon Missionaries in Germany

By C. H. Talbot

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the front, back and spine of the cover boards and also some staining. 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...."

Some of these from among the Pre-Reformation rites have not been available in a form adapted for actual use. Since use at St. Luke's, some have been used in other situations. Almost all could be said to come within the bounds prescribed by "An Order for Celebrating the Holy Eucharist" of Services for Trial Use if the Eucharistic Prayer is adapted to the "D" form of that Order...." - Seven Pre-Reformation Eucharistic Liturgies

In 1968 this was followed by the present writer's Modern Anglican Liturgies 1958-68 (MAL) from the same Press. MAL supplemented LiE in several ways, not only by adding new texts, but also by giving a brief background history to the production of all texts in both books ( with the exception of the Church of England's own texts of 1549-1662, which are very fully covered in many other writings)...." - Preface from Further Anglican Liturgies: 1968-1975

The previous owners name is written on the front end page. The rest of the pages are clean of any markings. "The Church of England has a rich devotional literature in which the various need of the soul are met by teachers with different experience and different emphasis but who are, none the less, unite by a common tradition. Its value for the present is beyond question; for the past, it not only indicates the kind of spiritual training which underlay the outward observances of religion, but provides if not a history of those ideas which determined the day to day conduct of each man with his neighbor. the obvious purpose of those who wrote these books was to escalate and direct the deepest thoughts and feelings of all whom they could persuade to accept their guidance. It was their aim to make the conscience swift to discern between right and wrong and to make the will obedient to the conscience. It is to the conscience in the lat resort that all great movements of history appeal. Changes in social attitudes reflect changes which have already taken place in the moral standards of the people. And so the study of the classical works of English devotion may be of value not only to those who are interested strictly in religious affairs, but to all those who would understand the wide and deep currents of the nation's life...." - Preface from Anglican Devotion: Studies in the Spiritual Life of the Church of England between the Reformation and the Oxford Movement

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is affixed on the contents page. "It hath been the wisdom of the Church of England, ever since the first compiling of her Publick Liturgy, to keep the mean between the two extremes, of too much stiffness in refusing, and of too much easiness in admitting any variation from it. For, as on one side common experience sheweth, that where a change hath been made of things advisedly established (no evident necessity so requiring) sundry inconveniences have thereupon ensued; and those many times more and greater than the evils, that were intended to be remedied by such change: So on the other side, the particular Forms of Divine worship, and the Rites and Ceremonies appointed to be used therein, being things in their own nature indifferent, and alterable, and so acknowledged; it is but reasonable, that upon weighty and important considerations, according to the various exigency of times and occasions, such changes and alterations should be made therein, as to those that are in place of Authority should from time to time seem either necessary or expedient. Accordingly we find, that in the Reigns of several Princes of blessed memory since the Reformation, the Church, upon just and weighty considerations her thereunto moving, hath yielded to make such alterations in some particulars, as in their responsive times were thought convenient: Yet so, as that the main Body and Essentials of it (as well in the chiefest materials, as in the frame and order thereof) have still continued the same unto this day, and do yet stand firm and unshaken, notwithstanding all the vain attempts and impetuous assaults made against it, by such men as are given to change, and have always discovered a greater regard to their own private fancies and interests, than to that duty they owe to the publick...." - The Preface from The Book of Common Prayer
