The previous owner has signed the front inside cover board. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "It is not too far from the truth to say that I am an Episcopalian because I was bribed into being one! It was a persuasive proposition put to me by my friend down the street who had joined the ranks of a newly launched boys' choir in the Episcopal Church in the California town where I lived. I was twelve years old, and the choir needed recruits. Whether my friend was authorized to put the matter to me in just the way he did I now have some doubt. His method was nevertheless successful - indeed. far beyond his expectations. The choir was due to make its debut on Christmas Eve. Then as a reward for the long weeks of preparation and rehearsal its members were to be taken shortly after Christmas for a visit to San Francisco, some four hundred miles away, for a glamorous visit to Chinatown and kindred delights. What could be simpler, my friend insisted, than to spend a few weeks practicing hymns and anthems, join the Christmas debut and the subsequent San Francisco excursion and then shake the dust of the Episcopal Church off my feet as soon as afterwards as decency would permit?..." - Chapter One from Why I Am An Episcopalian

The pages are yellowing and tanning, with some fraying on the vertical edges, but the pages are clear of any markings. "In 1963 a bishop of the Episcopal Church laid hands on my head and said, "Take thou authority to execute the Office of a Deacon in the Church of God committed unto thee; In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Amen." Three days later began my month's supply ministry in a parish whose rector was on vacation. Except for a Sunday supply priest, I was quite on my own for all practical purposes. As a matter of curiosity, I took up the Book of Common Prayer to see again what specific functions I had as a deacon; academic theory and ordination promises had suddenly acquired a jolting dimension of existential reality! Finding listed some tasks I felt unprepared for, and some that perhaps were not to be done, I ministered as I could for the four weeks...." - Preface from The Diaconate Now

There is little to no wear on the edges of the cover boards the corners are not bumped. The pages are crisp, white and clear of any markings. "Considering the remarkable sophistication of knowledge about colonial history at the present time in the United States, it is astonishing that no general study of Anglicanism in the long period between the settlement of Jamestown and the outbreak of the American Revolution has ever been written. This book attempts to fill that gap. 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

Out of this tradition now arises The United Methodist Book of Worship...." - Preface from The United Methodist Book Of Worship

The binding is tight and solid. "With remarkable cogency, Mr. Hudson here describes what has been distinctly American about Protestantism in America. This he does not by cataloguing the diversity of Protestant groups, but by discovering the kind of unity that has persisted and how the diversity itself has expressed our culture as a whole. He has drawn on vast, miscellaneous, and scattered sources; the conciseness and coherence of his conclusions are impressive...." - Editor's Preface by Daniel J. Boorstin, from American Protestantism
