St. Paul urges the churches to praise God "in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs," The Reformation began in a burst of congregational singing. In our worship the people have always taken an active and significant part, and a zeal for corporate worship has featured every period of renewal within Protestantism. Our hymn book, therefore, bears testimony to our concern that worship should be first and foremost an act of prayer and praise to God, understood and entered into by the whole company of the faithful...." - Preface from Pilgrim Hymnal

Any author must therefore feel pleasure if his first-born offspring survives to attain its majority. But his pleasure is likely to be tinged with some regret. As he rereads his old work he finds so much that, if he were to write it now for the first time, he would write very differently, but which, once written, he cannot change...." - Preface To The New Edition from Archbishop Laud 1573-1645

This book is in very good condition. The cover pages have minimal wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the book. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "I was the youngest of three Hahn children born to Molly Lou and Fred Hahn. Baptized a Presbyterian, I was raised in a nominal Protestant home. Church and religion played a small role in my life and for my family, and then mostly for social reasons rather than any deep convictions. I recall the last time I ever attended our family's church. The minister was preaching all about his doubts regarding the Virgin Birth of Jesus and his bodily Resurrection. I just stood up in the middle of the sermon and walked out. I remember thinking, I'm not sure what I believe, but at least I'm honest enough not to stand up and attack the things I'm supposed to teach. I also wondered, why doesn't the man just leave his ministry in the Presbyterian Church and go wherever his beliefs are held? Little did I know, that I had witnessed a portent of my own future...." - Chapter One from Rome Sweet Home: Our Journey to Catholicism

The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "This section of the book gives the user all the material which he needs to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy. The proper chants are printed in full so that they can be chanted or recited. The community should listen to the official proclamation of the message by the celebrant or reader and the prayers of the priest. A helpful but short commentary on the theme is often arbitrary since many celebrations just do not have a central idea. Whereas some of the readings were deliberately combined to develop a theme, other arrangements of Epistles and Gospels have been so shuffled through the centuries that there is little natural relationship between them. The commentary given here is a possible way of interpreting the readings around one point of meditation and instruction...." - Introduction To The Proper Section from Peoples Mass Book

The pages are white, crisp and clear. "As I began to say in the Introduction, the task of the first half of life is to create a proper container for one's life and answer the first essential questions: "What makes me significant?" "How can I support myself?" and "Who will go with me?" The task of the second half of life is, quite simply, to find the actual contents that this container was meant to hold and deliver. As Mary Oliver puts it, "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" In other words, the container is not an end in itself, but exists for the sake of your deeper and fullest life, which you largely do not know about yourself! Far too many people just keep doing repair work on the container itself and never "throw their nets into the deep" (John 21:6) to bring in the huge catch that awaits them...." - Chapter One from Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

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 previous owner has signed the inside front cover board. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "I do not intend to begin, in accordance with the German tradition, with an epistemological justification. I want to begin with an epistemological accusation, or, rather, with an accusation against epistemology. Epistemology is an expression of doubt in the power and the validity of philosophical knowledge. It implies a division which undermines the possibility of knowledge. Thinkers who devote themselves to epistemology seldom arrive at ontology. The path they follow is not one which leads to reality. The most creative modern philosophers, such as Bergson, M. Scheler and Heidegger, are little concerned with epistemology. Man has lost the power of knowing real being, has lost access to reality and been reduced to studying knowledge. And so in his pursuit of knowledge he is faced throughout with knowledge and not with being. But one cannot arrive at being - one can only start with it. In using the term 'being' I am not referring to any particular system of ontology, such as that of St. Thomas Aquinas, which is prior to a critical theory of knowledge. I do not believe that it is at all possible to return to a pre-critical, dogmatic metaphysic. All I mean is that we must return to reality itself, to actual life, and overcome the duality which undermines the value of cognitive activity. It was inevitable that philosophical knowledge should pass through this duality and critical reflection; such was the path of philosophy in Europe. It was its inner dramatic destiny the critical theory itself, claiming as it does to be independent of the concrete facts of life, was an expression of European life and culture. It was a higher and more subtle form of European 'enlightenment' which claims to be universal...." - Chapter One from The Destiny of Man
