Rome Sweet Home

By Scott and Kimberly Hahn

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 faith and doctrine of Christianity are handed down to us in the context of a living fellowship. In its widest sense this fellowship is that of the Church Universal; to us as Anglicans the tradition is handed down through the Anglican Communion as a part of Western Christendom. This involves for us two consequences. The first is that in interpreting our own tradition we must give attention to the background of the universal tradition of Christendom. The second is that in discussion of doctrine today we are bound to consider its historical sources and the authority which these should carry...." - Chapter One from Doctrine In The Church Of England

The United Church of Christ arises from the forging together of two Christian traditions, the Congregational Christian and the Evangelical and Reformed. The former derives from England and the English way of looking at things, the latter from the Continent of Europe and Continental ways - and England and the Continent have each had their own way of looking at a constitution...." - Chapter Two from The United Church of Christ

There is no bumping or fraying on the cover boards. The pages are clear of any markings. The pages are white, clear of any markings and crisp. "Since the promulgation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, all of us have experienced the first steps toward a renewal of the liturgy of the Church. We see clearly now that this liturgical renewal cannot be a matter of texts and rubrics only; the heart of this renewal is prayer. And the key to renewing the prayer of the Sunday assembly is rekindling a love for and practice of prayer in the hearts of those who make up the Church. Prayer must happen in the 'little churches' - the households, the families - if the Sunday assembly is to become a community of prayer. The Council taught that the liturgy 'is the primary and indispensable source from which the faithful are to derive the true Christian spirit' (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 14) How can that spirit come to fill and give shape to our lives unless it is there in the prayers of individuals and families?..." - Foreword from Catholic Household Blessings And Prayers

Corporate Worship In The Reformed Tradition

By James Hastings Nichols

The pages are beginning to yellow, but the pages are clear of any markings. "In the long history of the worshiping Christian community, or at least of the Latin-speaking section of it, the sixteenth century witnessed the most momentous changes since the days of Gregory the Great in the sixth century. The intervening millennium, in fact, may be regarded in the perspectives set by the Second Vatican Council as a liturgical parenthesis, defined by the delayed indigenization of worship on the north European mission field. There were understandable reasons for this delayed indigenization which need not concern us here. Some of these reasons also help to explain the suppression of regional rites, such as the Gallican and Mozarabic, and the enforced standardization on the Roman pattern. The effect, in any case, was that a form of worship, essentially crystallized for Latin-speaking peoples by the time of Gregory, was imposed unchanged on the northern European peoples. For a thousand years they must worship through a liturgy unintelligible to most of them. The form of this service, deprived of inner coherence and meaning, suffered over the centuries various distortions, omissions, telescoping's, and adventitious additions. Finally, in the religious and moral explosion of the sixteenth century, a major section of the mission churches of northern Europe rebelled. They translated and adapted the Latin liturgy for their own worship in defiance of the Roman hierarchy...." - Chapter One from Corporate Worship in The Reformed Tradition

The Expansion of the Anglican Communion

By The Rev. John Higgins, M.A., B.D.

This book is in good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is some bumping and fraying on the cover boards. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "The churches of the Anglican Communion owe their particular expression of Christianity to the historic church in Britain and England, to which land the Christian faith came some time in the second century. The new religion spread rapidly from its center at Jerusalem, and the persecutions to which it was subjected had not only the effect of making it stronger but also of dispersing it more rapidly. Britain had been conquered by the Romans in 44 A.D. and Roman rule meant that the trade routes were kept open. Perhaps traders from Gaul or merchants from the Mediterranean first told the story of the Cross to the uncouth Britons...." - from The Expansion of the Anglican Communion
