Christian Baptism

By Alexander Campbell

This antiquarian book is in very good condition. The book has been rebound and the cover boards and binding is practically new. The pages inside however are worn, yellowed and tanned. There is considerable markings throughout the pages.The previous owners names are written on the inside of the front cover board, and on the front of the second end page. There is some signs of moisture damage and flecking throughout the pages. This edition is still very readable and a wonderful collector's item. "Christianity has its theory and its practice. 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." It was a "holy nation" whose citizens had their citizenship in heaven...." - Introduction from Christian Baptism: With Its Antecedents And Consequents

Confirmation

By L.S. Thornton, C.R.

This book is in good condition. There is minor wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. the corners of the cover boards are bumped. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is affixed to the front cover page. The pages are yellowed and tanned but clear of any markings. "This volume does not form part of the series entitled 'The form of the Servant', although I hope that it may be regarded as further illustrating the principles of biblical interpretation there adopted. In the course of the past century there has been amongst Anglicans a periodic discussion of matters connected with baptism and confirmation. During the second half of this period, however, a number of new factors have been contributing to the development of a fresh situation. Amongst these are the growing recognition that both Jewish and more ancient backgrounds are all-important and secondly the recovery of early liturgical texts amongst which The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus stands out. My own interest was first aroused by F. Gavin's small, but learned, book on The Jewish antecedents of The Christian Sacraments (1928), which showed a close continuity between Jewish and Christian forms of initiation and which, in that respect, is still highly relevant. For example, it makes clear the strongly Jewish background of the Hippolytan rites, and even a substantial identity of rubrics....." - Foreword from Confirmation: It's Place In The Baptismal Mystery

The Theology Of The Sacraments And Other Papers

By Donald M. Baillie

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the front, back and spine of the cover boards. There is some wear to the edges of the cover boards also. There is some bumping to the corners of the cover boards. The previous owners signature is written on the inside of the front cover board, and his seal is affixed to the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. The binding is tight and solid. "Of the pieces here presented only the short essay on the freedom of the will was written by my brother for publication, and thanks are due to the editors of The Scottish Journal of Theology for permission to reprint it. The others were delivered as lectures, and were found among my brother's papers only in the form of lecture notes, fully written out indeed, but written by his own hand with a running pen and quite unrevised. Their style is that of the spoken word, and the contrast between them and the single published essay will at once be apparent. The decision to publish posthumously what an author had himself witheld must always be a delicate and responsible one, but my scruples have been overborne by the many requests reaching me to make available the lectures on the theology of the sacraments which were delivered on the Moore Foundation in the Presbyterian Theological seminary, San Anselmo, California, in 1952...." - Preface from The Theology Of The Sacraments And Other Papers
