Days of the Lord, Vol. 1 (Days of the Lord: the Liturgical Year)

By Cardinal Danneels Godfried

This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the covers. There is no bumping or fraying on the covers, however, there are bent edges on the covers and pages. The pages are crisp, white, and clear of any markings. " Typically, " the liturgical year" calls to mind only the Christian calendar of Sundays and feasts that, instead of beginning on January 1 and ending December 31, goes from the first Sunday of Advent to the Saturday at the end of the thirty-fourth week of Ordinary Time. This deviation from the common secular calendar does not create a real problem. One reason is that we are used to other, similar deviations, particularly those of the school year. Another is that Christmas is the only date one needs to know in order to determine the date of the first of the four Sundays of Advent. However, this first, superficial picture of a simple, annual schedule of Christian celebrations is not enough to fully appreciate the profound reality of the liturgical year and all its values. We must begin, therefore, with a certain understanding of time.,,," -Chapter One from Days of the Lord, Vol 1 (Days of the Lord: the Liturgical Year)

New Rules Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

By Bill. Maher

This book is in very good condition. There is little to no wear on the front, back, spine, and edges of the coverboards. There is no bumping or fraying on the coverboards. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. " No more books by talk show hosts! No, I mean it! Just this last one and then that's it. Who do we think we are, anyway? I guess it's not enough to broadcast our every brilliant thought to millions of viewers each week. We also have to amass compilations of our favorite, most precious bon mots so that people can carry them around under their arms and enjoy them at the beach or on the subway or during a quiet moment sitting alone at home in a small room. Okay, okay, and they also make great gifts. There, I've said it...." - Foreword from New Rules Polite Musings from a Timid Observer

The Books And The Parchments

By F. F. Bruce, M.A.

This book is in good condition. There is significant wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. The corners are also bumped. The gilding on the spine is rubbed and faded. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is stamped on the first end page and the first title page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. There are some markings on the pages, but it still is definitely a good read. "This volume gathers together a number of articles written and papers read at various times on the transmission of the Bible. It is intended for non-specialists like those who have read them or heard them in their earlier forms, and who have frequently expressed a desire to have them in this form...." - Preface from The Books And The Parchments: Some Chapters On The Transmission Of The Bible

The Compassionate Christ

By Walter Russell Bowie

:This book is in good condition. There is some wear and staining on the front, back, spine, and edges of the cover boards. The corners of the cover boards are slightly bumped. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are slightly yellowed and the pages are clear of any markings. "This book has its source in the direct suggestion that comes from a previous notable work. In 1940, William Temple, Archbishop of York and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, published his Readings in St. John's Gospel. In the first paragraph of that work he wrote: This book is not a systematic commentary or exposition; nor is it intended for scholars or theologians-though whatever value it has for souls on pilgrimage may be as real for them as for others. Again, it is not a series of devotional meditations, though it contains some of these. It has no distinctive and consistent character. But it is an attempt to share with any who read it what I find to be my own thoughts as I read the profoundest of all writings...." - Introduction from The Compassionate Christ: Reflections from the Gospel of Luke
