    The English Missal For Laity by W. Knott And Son Limited

    This book is in very poor condition. The spine is loose and coming apart. The cover is worn and the lettering is gone. The edges and corners are worn There is water stains to the pages and cover.The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front board. The silk place markers have disintegrated. The pages are also tanned and yellowed but still readable. The English Missal is a translation of the Roman Missal used by some Anglo-Catholic parish churches. After its publication by W. Knott & Son Limited in 1912, the English Missal was rapidly endorsed by the growing Ritualist movement of Anglo-Catholic clergy, who viewed the liturgies of the Book Of Common Prayer as insufficient expressions of fully Catholic worship. The translation of the Roman Missal from Latin into the stylized Elizabethan Early Modern English of the Book of Common Prayer allowed clergy to preserve the use of the vernacular language while adopting the Roman Catholic texts and liturgical rubrics. The only difference in content from the Roman Missal is the English Missal's inclusion of certain texts from the Book of Common Prayer, including optional prayers from the ordinary of the Prayer Book's Communion Service and the lessons for Sundays and major feast days from the Prayer Book's lectionary, which was itself taken from the earlier Sarum Use Mass of pre-Reformation England.

    Anglican Orders (English) by The Bull Of His Holiness Leo XIII, September 13, 1896 And The Answer Of The Archbishops Of England March 29, 1897

    This book is in good condition.The cover has some wear, dings, and bumped corners and edges. The previous owners signature is on the front inside cover and his stamp is on the first page. The false and embarrassing position which had developed over centuries of uncertainty had been clarified by the Chief Bishop of Christendom in a single sentence, i.e., "Anglican orders are null and void." When Pope Leo gave his decision, he gave Catholic Britons, in particular, a renewed energy, either as converts from Anglicanism or as "cradle Catholics," to labor ardently for the conversion of their compatriots. The universal pleasure which Apostolicae Curae stimulated was expertly editorialized by one of England's more powerful Catholic oracles, The Tablet :

    High Holiday Prayer Book by Rabbi Morris Silverman

    This book is written in Hebrew and English, and once was a congregational book of Congregation Agudas Achim. The outside cover has some wear and the outside pages are stamped with previous owner's mark. Like most machzorim, the Silverman primarily consists of the liturgy itself, in Hebrew on the right and in English translation on the left. Occasionally editorial commentary is inserted in the form of notes or footnotes. And occasionally passages from the Hebrew are left untranslated. I'm sure there's a lot to be said about the choices of what to include and not to include in the liturgy and particular translation choices that lie far beyond my extraordinarily limited Hebrew (and my basically non-existent Aramaic). But in this post I just want to point to a few things in the Silverman that strike me as interesting and potentially suggestive of larger questions in American Jewish culture.

If anyone is seeking a guide to help focus on prayer, I recommend this tiny treasure." - Anonymous

    The Gospel According to Saint Mark by C. E. B. Cranfield

    This book is in good condition and has some surface wear. There is rubbing along the spine sides and at corners and spine ends, The previous owners stamp is at the top of the first page. Pages inside are yellowing and tanned. The last fifty years have seen a shift of emphasis in New Testament scholarship. When the task was to establish the text and to discuss the authenticity of the documents, linguistic and historical considerations came first. Now that these things are approaching a settled state it has become possible, and necessary, to give more attention to the theological and religious content of the New Testament. Hence the New Testament is re-examined by scholars in this new series. Each volume takes a book of the New Testament and, after an introduction on general matters, goes through the text in great detail, commenting especially on theological matters, relating the contents to the life and worship of the early Christian communities. It is assumed that students have their own Greek text beside the open commentary. The text on which the commentary is based is the Kilpatrick-Nestle edition.

    Thoughts In War-Time by William Temple

    This book is in acceptable condition. There is some wear to the cover and the corners are worn. The cover is also fading. Against the background of persecution of Jewish people during World War II Temple jointly founded with Chief Rabbi Joseph Hertz the Council of Christians and Jews to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice in Britain. In March 1943, Temple addressed the House of Lords, urging action to be taken on the atrocities being carried out by Nazi Germany. He said: "My chief protest is against procrastination of any kind. ... The Jews are being slaughtered at the rate of tens of thousands a day on many days. ... It is always true that the obligations of decent men are decided for them by contingencies which they did not themselves create and very largely by the action of wicked men. The priest and the Levite in the parable were not in the least responsible for the traveller's wounds as he lay there by the roadside and no doubt they had many other pressing things to attend to, but they stand as the picture of those who are condemned for neglecting the opportunity of showing mercy. We at this moment have upon us a tremendous responsibility. We stand at the bar of history, of humanity and of God." Temple drew criticism from his numerous Quaker connections, by writing an introduction to "Christ and Our Enemies" which did not condemn the Allied carpet bombingof Germany citing the fact that he was "not only non-pacifist but anti-pacifist" In 1944, he published The Church Looks Forward (1944). He also publicly supported a negotiated peace, as opposed to the unconditional surrender that the Allied leaders were demanding.

    Life Of The Reverend James De Koven, D.D. by William C. Pope

    This book is an antique. Not only is it an antique but it is in very good condition. Attached to the front inside cover is a letter of correspondence between the Right Reverend Edward Randolph Welles and the daughter of the author, Emily Pope Eckel. The first page of the book has been notated that this book was given to Reverend R.E. Macy by Emily Pope Eckel. DeKoven was born in Middletown, Connecticutt and educated at Columbia College. In 1851 he was admitted to General Theological Seminary and was ordained as a deacon in 1854 in Middletown. He accepted a teaching position at Nashotah House in Wisconsin and became rector of the nearby St. John Chrysostom parish in Delafield. It was there that he was ordained as a priest by Bishop Jackson Kemper In 1859 he became the warden of Racine College and continued to be at the center of that school for the rest of his life. He led the cause for ritualism at the National Conventions in 1871 and 1874. DeKoven was several times nominated and even elected as a bishop, but was never ordained to the episcopate. He was nominated or elected as bishop of Massachusetts (1873), Wisconsin (1874), Fond du Lac (1875), and Illinois (1875). In the Illinois election he was elected by the clergy and the laity, but the standing committee refused to accept his election. The reason given by the standing committee was his 'doctrine on the Holy Eucharist.' An open letter written in the Milwaukee paper on January 14, 1874 was at least partly responsible for his Eucharistic doctrine being questioned. The signers of this letter included three teachers from Nashotah House. He also addressed the Church Congress (a series of national meetings to cast a vision for the Episcopal Church) in 1876. De Koven remained in Wisconsin for the rest of his life, turning down calls to lead some of the nation's largest and wealthiest parish churches, including Trinity Church in New York City, Church of the Advent in Boston, and St. Marks Church in Philadelphia.

    The Temple by Reverend Dr. Edersheim

    This book is in good condition. The cover is worn as well as the corners and the edges. The previous owners name is written on the first page.Im not sure of the age of this book, because it was not listed. However, if circa 1900, is correct, that would make this boo an antique. Jerusalem's temple represented not only the glory of Israel's past but the splendor of its future, when the Messiah would come and reign over God's people. To recapture the essence of the temple's significance, both in the life of Israel and in the life and theology of the early Christians, readers are fortunate indeed to have as a tour guide that eminent scholar of Judaism and the New Testament, Alfred Edersheim. Readers who want to experience the grandeur of Herod's temple - the temple that Jesus "cleansed" - or the anguish of a temple trodden by Roman soldiers will appreciate Edersheim's knowledge of and passion for the temple of Scripture. Readers will also welcome this newly typeset, highly readable edition with illustrations and marginal references from Scripture, Philo, Josephus, and the Mishnah.
