    A Time For Christian Candor by James A. Pike

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed, but clear of any markings. "We are in the midst of a theological revolution. It is not that the present well-known attempts to rethink and restate the Christian faith are entirely original, either in approach or in content; a good deal of all this has long been in learned books and in seminary lectures. But now more than ever, the process is going on in public . A definitive point - both revealing as to the long course of private dialogue in this regard and causing more public expression - was the recent publication of Honest to God by John A.T. Robinson, Bishop of Woolwhich. Since its appearance, and innumerable responses in books, reviews, articles, and sermons (affirmative, negative or qualified), hundreds of thousands of people, inside and outside the Church, have been affected by learning about this long and grueling revolution in Christian thinking and by reading various attempts to check or suppress it....." - Preface and a Note on Metho d from A Time For Christian Candor

The pages are white, crisp and clean of all markings. "Obtaining information about America's religious groups can be difficult, providing it to others is a king-sized undertaking. For one thing, there are so many. For another, finding a way to make contact with them to gather facts and figures, especially from the smaller, less highly organized ones, can be a mystery. And then there is the question of which ones to include in a reference book of this kind. Finally, classifying them - that is, under which heading, if any, to place them and how to list them by title - sometimes requires a judgement call or even a bold venture...." - Preface to the Eighth Edition from Handbook of Denominations in the United States

"Ethiopia has been called Africa's Switzerland and she has also been called Africa's Tibet. Both parallels are to some extent true. Ethiopia is a land of awe-inspiring mountains, isolated plateau and precipitous valleys. Even today mention of this ancient Empire conjures up mystery and fascination in the minds of men and sometimes there is almost resentment at Ethiopia's periodic aloofness from the political currents of a wider world. Her scenery, like her people has a long and interesting history resulting in variety and splendor unique in the world of Africa...." - Ethiopia: A New Political History

If music is the universal language, and it is, hymns of confession, of praise, of petition, of hope, of comfort, of adoration, of consecration easily become the mediums through which all devout souls may join in giving expression to their deepest emotions...." - Foreword from The Broadman Hymna l

"Am I perhaps a little inclined to understate the interest of those much-admired manuscripts discovered near the Dead Sea? By this I do not mean that I grudge them any of the importance that all the most competent specialists agree in ascribing to them. But neither do I go so far as to think that the discovery was the most extraordinary that could have possibly been made of the vanished world in which the Christian religion was born and bred. For this I have a personal but sufficient reason - I know of some other writings, a little less ancient (by some centuries) than the texts of Qumran; but richer, and they illuminate with the greatest abundance of detail one of the most obscure movements in the earliest centuries of our era. It is of these Coptic manuscripts found in Upper Egypt, and of the circumstances in which they were brought to light, that I propose to give a general account in this first book...." - Introduction from The Secret Books Of The Egyptian Gnostics: An Introduction to the Gnostic Coptic manuscripts discovered at Chenoboskion

"Sermons that are brought together in a volume embody a new motive, over and above the direct aim with which each was separately preached. They profess that they are united together by more than the mere cover of the book. They claim to suggest a single impression; to communicate a single and paramount idea; to convey a single supposition; to witness to a single source; to promote a single interest; to work under a single direction; to tend towards a single conclusion. They trust that their partial and piecemeal treatment of their subject will correct itself by help of juxtaposition; so that they may lose their unhappy appearance, as loose and sketchy fragments, and may visibly be seen to cohere into a valid and substantial consistency...." - Preface from Creed And Character

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

This is not unusual-the outlines of our lich-gate, with its turned-up eaves and green leaves behind it, must be familiar through pictures to thousands of people who have never been here in person. The Little Church Around the Corner is a household name. It is the church with the beautiful Bridal Altar where romantic young couples flock to get married. It is the official place of worship of hundreds of actors. It is the historic shrine where one goes to see stained-glass windows commemorating the face of Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, John Drew, Richard Mansfield; and bronze tablets to Stephen Vincent Benet, Will Rogers, O. Henry. It is the haven where the hungry were fed in the days of the breadline. For the last third of a century it has been my life...." - Foreword from My Little Church Around The Corner

In 1959 the Liturgical Press published a prime example of that with the first edition of Our Parish Prays and Sings .Through several editions, including the Book of Sacred Song , the American parish has come to know the best of classical Christian hymnody, in both the vernacular and the Latin chant. Much of the tradition of thirty years in promoting congregational song has been included in The Collegeville Hymnal, with emphasis as well on music and texts of notable merit gleaned from the work of contemporary composers and writers. Indeed, particular attention has been paid to texts from which archaic or non-inclusive language has been eliminated, except where poetic importance precludes change...." - Introduction from The Collegeville Hymnal

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

Its theory is the Sacred Writings of the Apostles and Evangelists of Jesus Christ; its practice , the life of the Christian. The Christian profession is not now what it once was. It has become secular and sectarian. The members of the church of Christ were formerly called "saints," "elect of God," "a chosen generation," "a royal priesthood," "a peculiar people." Now they are called "Churchmen," "Dissenters," "Romanists," "Protestants," "Episcopalians," "Presbyterians," "Independents," "Baptists," "Methodists," &c. &c. &c. The church was once "a spiritual house," whose members were addressed as "justified," "sanctified," "adopted," and "saved."

The pages are crisp, white and clear of any markings. "For nearly two millenia, the Bible has been the cardinal text for Judaism and Christianity. Its stories and characters are part of both the repertoire of Western literature and the vocabulary of educated women and men. It is, however, more than a collection of ancient tales. Even before a canonical list of books considered sacred scripture or holy writ was established, the writings we now call the Bible were considered normative: they laid down the essential principles of how human beings should deal with God and with each other. Te practice of quoting from, an alluding to, earlier texts as authoritative is found within the Bible itself and has continued unabated in subsequent Jewish and Christian writings. At the same time, the Bible has also been formative; subsequent generations of believers have seen themselves as descended from, and in continuity with, those to whom God had spoken and for whom he had acted definitively in the past, and the recital of those words and events has been instrumental in shaping the religious communities of succeeding generations. The Bible has thus had an immeasurable influence on Judaism and Christianity, on the cultures of which they have formed a part, and on all those traditions in some ways derived from them, such as Islam...." - Introduction from The Oxford Companion to the Bible

In the Introduction, the purposes and methods of New Testament study are discussed, and the approach and scope of this book is explained.The author assumes that the New Testament books will be read, so that the reader will come to know of their writers. The outlines of the books of the New Testament are intended to help the reader master their structure and content; for this reason, they usually appear before the statement of critical problems and the comments of scholars on them. Learning what others think about books of the Bible should never become a substitute for reading the text in its entirety...." Foreword from Interpreting The New Testament

""When answering my letters, requesting information about their communities, several Superiors have asked why, as a Roman Catholic, I should be sufficiently interested in Anglican religious orders to think it worth while to write a book about them! Very much the same surprise has been expressed by some of my co-religionists when I mentioned the work on which I was engaged. So I explained that the subject is one which has attracted me for nearly half a century, ever since I was a youth of fifteen and chanced to pick up a copy of The Life of Father Ignatius, O.S.B., The Monk of Llanthony by the Baroness de Bertouch (London, 1940) - a strange introduction to the monastic life! Since then this interest has grown, rather than decreased. It was revived definitely about fifteen years ago when I added a long introductory chapter, dealing with religious communities in the Church of England, to The Benedictines of Caldey (London, 1940). Then one day it struck me that it was high time that somebody wrote an up-to-date history of Anglican religious communities...." - Foreword from The Call of the Cloister: Religious Communities And Kindred Bodies In The Anglican Communion

The substratum of the book consists of the words then spoken in the lecture room., though with revisions and enlargements. To this spoken discourse I have ventured to append annotations which in a few instances may seem to go ill with a text addressed to a more general audience, but may nevertheless, I hope, be found to contain something of interest for those readers for whom the stuff of a book consists in the notes and marginalia...." - Preface from Early Christian Thought And The Classical Tradition: Studies in Justin Clement, and Origen
