A Contemporary Celtic Prayer Book

By William John Fitzgerald

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards. There is little to no wear on the edges of the cover boards. There is also a minimal amount of bumping on the corners. The pages are crisp, white and clean of all markings. "I can still see the small forest of healthy green pines along the Black River in Northern Ireland. The profound emotion that these trees stirred in me is strongly wedded to my memory. All week long, as I walked in the forest, touched the branches, leaned against the trunks of trees, and lay on the soft ground of pine needles, I felt a deep wave of intense emotion while a great peace settled in my soul. I stood silently amid the trees, taking in deep breaths of an air that seemed both earthly and eternal. I hummed. I sang. Each time I walked into that sacred place, I felt as though I never wanted to leave. Something in that dark, earthy, moist, forest felt like "home" to me. Something in that quiet realm spoke to me of an energy dwelling in the land long before I was there, an energy thick with life and vitality...." - Foreword from A Contemporary Celtic Prayer Book

"It is a most invaluable part of the blessed "liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free," that in his worship different forms and usages may without offence be allowed, provided the substance of the Faith be kept entire; and that in every Church, what cannot be clearly determined to belong to Doctrine must be referred to Discipline; and therefore, by common consent and authority, may be altered, abridged, enlarged, amended, or otherwise disposed of, as may seem most convenient for the edification of the people, "according to the various exigency of times and occasions...."" - Preface from The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments and Other Rites and Ceremonies of the Church Together with The Psalter or Psalms of David According to the use of the Episcopal Church

This book is in good condition. However, there is significant wear to the front, back, and edges of the cover boards. The corners are bumped. The pages are yellowed and tanned and clear of any markings. "These pages were not originally written with a view to publication. They are merely the result of several years of study. I only publish them now on the advice of a friend whose judgement in matters liturgical I am bound to respect. For I am fully conscious of the defects of this little book. Liturgical study demands an amount of sustained concentration and exactitude which is practically incompatible with the busy and broken life of a Diocesan Inspector...." - Preface from The Eucharistic Office Of The Book Of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer

By Century Hutchinson

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the cover boards. 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

"Since the approval of the current edition of The Book of Common Prayer in 1979, there has been an expressed need to have a concordance to the Prayer Book. the question posed by this desire was, "Just how can such a concordance be produced accurately and economically?" Over the last nine years, there have been many discussions and proposals of methods to accomplish this massive attack. However, each plan was found to be unworkable for various reasons, and the subject would rest until a new idea was presented...." - Preface from The Prayer Book Concordance

This book is signed by David Stancliffe, Bishop of Salisbury, Chairman of the Liturgical Commission of the Church of England and erstwhile Chairman of the Advisory Panel for Celebrating Common Prayer. "A word of explanation about why this book has been produced and how it differs from the full version of Celebrating Common Prayer is probably in order. Many who use and enjoy celebrating the Office from Celebrating Common Prayer have said that, particularly when they are travelling, the book plus Bible is simply too heavy and cumbersome. So we have included a selection of short bible readings which follow the same daily and weekly pattern as the psalms; so you do not need to carry a separate Bible...." - Preface from Celebrating Common Prayer: The Pocket Version

A Manual Of Ceremonial

By Marion J. Hatchett

This book is in very good condition.There is little to no wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards. The edges have slight wear and the corners have minor bumping. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are relatively still white, crisp and clean of all markings. "The results of research in liturgy within the last few decades and the impact of the liturgical Movement Have caused manuals on religious ceremonial which were used in the past decades, such as, for example, A Prayer Book Manual published by the Episcopal Evangelical Fellowship on the one hand, or Ritual Notes by E.C.R. Lamburn and various "Missals" on the other hand, to seem as outdated and as lacking in liturgical nsophistication as, say, the Schofield Reference Bible for Biblical scholarship or the David C. Cook Series for Christian Education. Even the more sophisticated older works such as the pamphlets on ceremonial which have been published by the Alcuin Club or the Anglican Society now seem highly dated. The Church Army has published several helpful and sophisticated customaries for certain rites or days. (A Customary for the Holy Eucharist; A Handbook for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday; The Virgil of Easter Eve) which can be highly recommended, but aside from those little is available that has been arranged with the American Book of Common Prayer or with Services for Trial Use or Authoirized Services 1973 in view. It is an effort to fill this gap that this manual has been compiled...." - from A Manual Of Ceremonial

The pages are yellowed and tanned "This book is intended to help clergy and people to celebrate those holy men and women who are commemorated as 'Lesser Festivals and Holy Days" in the calendar of The Alternative Service Book 1980. Although 'Commons" are provided in that book for each class of saint (martyr, bishops and so on), these lack any particular reference to individuals. Thus many of those who are accustomed to a daily eucharist have found that repetition of this material, and especially the Collects, fails to provide a variety rich enough to celebrate the individuality of each saint in the calendar...." - Introduction from The Cloud Of Witnesses: A companion to the Lesser Festivals and Holy Days of the Alternative Service Book 1980

The animals loved him and lived in an idyllic, undisturbed harmony. Everything was lovely in the garden. No, not quite. God looked on his human creature and was concerned, for his life was not all unalloyed bliss. God said, "It is not good for man to be alone." And God asked Adam to choose a mate for himself from among the animals which paraded before him in procession. God would ask his human friend: "What about this one?" Adam would reply: "Not on your life! No, thank you!" And so God decided to put Adam to sleep and produced from his rib that delectable creature, Eve; and when Adam awoke he exclaimed: "Wow! This is just what the doctor ordered...." Introduction, from An African Prayer Book

A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

By Charles Wheatley

This antiquarian book is in poor condition. There is significant wear and damage to the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards.The corners also have very pronounced bumping. The entire cover boards are taped with packing tape to hold the book together. The two front pages are loose and detached from the book. There is a marking on the front end page.The pages are yellowed, tanned and soiled. The only thing holding the book together is packing tape. "Most of the objections urged by the Dissenters against the Church of England, to justify their separation from it, being levelled against its form and manner of divine worship, prescribed in the Book of Common Prayer, &c., are, in the following Discourse, answered, as fully as its brevity would permit. So that, though the principal design of this book be to instruct such as are friends to our Church and Liturgy; yet it is not impossible but that, by the blessing of God, it may in some measure contribute to the undeceiving some that are enemies to both, (such I mean as are disaffected to the former, upon no other account, than a prejudice to the latter;) especially could we, by first convincing them of the Liturgies in general, prevail with them to take an impartial view of what is here offered in behalf of our own. To this end therefore, and to make the following sheets of as genera luse as I can, I shall, by way of Introduction, endeavor to prove these three things; viz." - A Rational Illustration Of The Book Of Common Prayer Of The Church Of England

The previous owners name is inscribed on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are crisp, white and clean. The binding is tight and solid.

In addition there is a course of Lent meditations on the theme of 'Spiritual Gifts.' This is designed to be used by individuals alone, and by groups. Both the readings and the meditations are by writers from every Christian tradition and from every century of the Christian era. Some of the names are familiar, and some have remained uniquely obscure; all speak to our present condition. Little Gidding Books aim to bring the less familiar works of Christian literature to a wider public. Its publications may be enjoyed on their own, or used in conjuction with the Little Gidding Prayer Book." - Feasts And Fasts: Volume 1

Prayer Book Spirituality

By J. Robert Wright

This book is as new condition as it gets. The only thing missing is the dust jacket. "Revision of The Book of Common Prayer in the latter half of the twentieth century, while seeking to provide modernized and updated forms of worship for Anglican church people, has at the same time also stimulated in them a desire to know and to participate more fully in the classical tradition of Prayer Book devotion. Over the centuries since the First Book of Common Prayer in 1549, numerous Anglican writers from many perspectives have produced variously related works that can be seen as, in effect, devotional commentaries on the nature and function of Prayer Book worship. The purpose of this present undertaking is to bring together basic selections from the most important of these earlier writings and to render them accessible to modern readers in one volume that can serve as both compendium and companion to the spiritual and devotional nature of Prayer Book worship. It is intended to accompany and supplement any Book of Common Prayer used anywhere in the Anglican Communion. The contents need to be read selectively in any order that may be desired; indeed, for most readers, the book will be better "dipped into" than read through from beginning to end. In showing how Anglicans since the Reformation have understood and interpreted their public worship, this anthology should also be of considerable assistance to non-Anglicans who want to understand the feature that is, ecumenically, most characteristic of Anglicanism." - Introduction, Prayer Book Spirituality: A Devotional Companion to the Book of Common Prayer Compiled from Classical Anglican Sources

Adventures In Prayer

By Charles Henry Brent

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the cover on the front, back and spine. The edges have wear also but in particular on the spine. There is some bumping to the corners. The gilt lettering on the spine is fading.There is a dedication from one priest to another on the front end page. The pages are tanned and yellowed. The binding is tight and solid. "The spirit of Bishop Brent's Prayers, both published and private, can best be interpreted by three statements of his own: "An artistic prayer, a prayer carefully prepared, so far from being less is more spiritual by virtue of its literary finish." Again he records: "My father, were it not for prayer which opens wide the door to Thy heart, where would I be? Blessed be Thy goodness in making it easy for Thy children to approach Thee. Nothing human is too small for Thee to care for. Thy understanding caress suits every sorrow; Thy wise counsel illumines every problem; Thy limitless pity lightens every burden. Hence it is with confidence I bring to Thee my prattle." Later he finely declares: "No man is safe, unless he swings his life between a risk and an opportunity." The first statement justifies his conscious will to pray beautifully;the second permits him free and ingenuous phrasing; the last indicates his lifelong passion for adventure into the Divine." - Introduction by S.S. Drury, Adventures In Prayer
