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

An increased spirit of brotherhood, predicated on a clearer concept of the religious beliefs of others could well result in a new appreciation of their tenets, thereby creating an attitude of respect which is frequently lacking today both in business and in political contacts...." - Foreword from Days And Customs Of All Faiths

"Two misconceptions have distorted the story of the Church of the Lutheran Reformation for those within as well as those outside that church. 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. This volume begins with the early church since the true purpose of the Reformation church can be understood only in the light of the preceding 1,5000 years...." - Preface from The Church of the Lutheran Reformation: A Historical Survey of Lutheranism

"In worship, as in doctrine, the Lutheran Church is part of the "one, body, catholic and apostolic Church." It claims as its rightful inheritance all that is truly ecumenical in the Church of every age and every land. Not the least part of its legacy is the liturgy, which has moved from beginnings in Asia Minor to the western end of the Mediterranean, to Northern Europe and to the Western Hemisphere. in this transition it has crossed the barriers of language from Greek to Latin to German to English. The Lutheran churches which have prepared the Common Liturgy are located in the New World and worship in the English language...." - Preface to the Liturgy from Service Book And Hymnal

"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

Hooker And The Anglican Tradition

By John S. Marshall

This book is in good condition. The cover shows a lot of wear around the edges. This is also the first edition of this book. This view, which is well-represented in such mid twentieth-century works as John F.H. New's Anglican and Puritan, F.J. Shirley's Richard Hooker and Contemporary Political Ideas, and John S. Marshall's Hooker and the Anglican Tradition, 5 rested heavily on a certain self-understanding of Anglicanism as having, from its inception, charted something of a middle course between Rome and Geneva. This self-understanding was for many Anglicans somewhat transparently self-congratulatory, claiming as the special charism of that tradition its ability to achieve moderation in the face of dogmatism and sweet reasonableness in the face of conflict. Richard Hooker, with his beautifully-balanced, carefullyqualified prose, and his commitment to search out the rational foundations of every dispute, was taken to be paradigmatic of this theological method. Not only that, but Hooker's thought was often read as paradigmatic of such a "golden mediocrity" in its content as well, charting a course that steered the English church well away from the jagged rocks of Calvinist predestinarianism and Lutheran solfidianism, but without getting lost in the treacherous sea of postTridentine Catholicism. Hooker's theology was Thomist above all, hearkening back to the best features of the scholastic synthesis before the late medieval corruptions and the Reformation tumults.
