"In the autumn of 1976, Trevor Collins, then Vicar of Boston, asked me to write an historical drama about baptism for confirmation class. I have used that drama in various forms over the years in several places as an increasingly important teaching aid. Then in the spring of 1988, Colin James, Bishop of Winchester and Chairman of the Church of England Liturgical Commission, and Alec Graham, Bishop of Newcastle and Chairman of the Doctrine Commission, invited me to prepare a paper for the House of Bishops the various theological issues connected with baptism, including confirmation, personal renewal, and reconciliation...." - Preface from The Mystery Of Baptism: In the Anglican Tradition

"William Glendinning pressed a razor against his pulsing throat and awaited the worst. He did not even try to pray, that recourse having failed since he had first sunk into despondency more than a year earlier, in 1784. For the likes of him, he knew, there could be no mercy now, even though heaven's gate once had seemed within his reach. Only a few years after emigrating to the Chesapeake in 1767, Glendinning had been saved, plucked by his conversion to Methodism and the call to preach from an obscure, rootless lot as a journeyman tailor. A sawed-off, scrawny Scot whose speech rolled off his tongue in a thick burr, he struck Methodist leaders as less choice a recruit than the beefy, native-born farm boys who could withstand the rigors of a traveling ministry, and less choice still than the stray scions of genteel families who might lend the church some respectability. But with all the determination of one accustomed to being underestimated, Glendinning set about to prove his worth. During the years spanned by the American Revolution, he spread the Methodist message throughout the Chesapeake. And despite the strain of constant travel, preaching, and pastoral work, Glendinning, eager to grow in wisdom, and grace, steeped himself in study of the Bible and learned theological treatises...." - Chapter One from Southern Cross: The Beginnings of the Bible Belt

By Dewi Morgan

The pages are yellowing, but are clear of any markings. "In 1948 three hundred and twenty-nine Anglican bishops came to Lambeth. They came from every continent. They thought it worth while to set aside urgent demands in their own dioceses and momentarily to close full engagement diaries. Their visit was accorded a great deal of publicity and was, temporarily at least, a matter of national interest. The outcome of their deliberation has, sometimes imperceptibly, influenced subsequent world events...." - Chapter One from The Bishops Come To Lambeth

He was, after all, in his thirty-eighth year when in 1797 he married Barbara Ann Spooner, the eldest daughter of Isaac Spooner of Elm-den Hall, near Coventry, and had already become a national figure. He had been Member for Yorkshire for thirteen years. His youthful intimacy with William Pitt - when they had played faro into the night at Brooks's and Goosetree's and paid court to Mrs. Crewe and Mrs. Siddons - had years ago passed into a more sober, if no less affectionate, friendship; ever since, in fact, William had first felt the call of 'true' religion in the winter of 1784. He was already the acknowledged champion of the reformation of public manners and the abolition of the slave trade...." - Chapter One from The Parting Of Friends: The Wilberforces and Henry Manning

The pages are white, crisp and clear of any markings on both books. "One of the most notable features of the worldwide evangelical movement during the last ten to fifteen years has been the recovery of our temporarily mislaid social conscience. For approximately fifty years (c.1920-70) evangelicals were preoccupied with the task of defending the historic biblical faith against the attacks of liberalism, and reacting against its 'social gospel.' But now we are convinced that God has given us social as well as evangelistic responsibilities in his world. Yet the half-century of neglect has put us far behind in this area. We have a long way to catch up...." - Introduction from Volume I - Involvement: Being a Responsible Christian in a Non-Christian Society

Anglican Essentials

By Geoge Egerton

"This is only the second time I have been asked to write a preference for a Canadian publication, and both have been in many places highly critical of the church in which I live and work. In the first case, the criticism was directed at the House of Bishops, a body of which I am the senior active member and president. In this case, criticism is directed at the Anglican Church of Canada more generally, but the same principle applies...." - Preface: Speaking The Truth In Love by The Most Reverend a Michael G.

The previous owner has signed the front inside cover board. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "It is not too far from the truth to say that I am an Episcopalian because I was bribed into being one! It was a persuasive proposition put to me by my friend down the street who had joined the ranks of a newly launched boys' choir in the Episcopal Church in the California town where I lived. I was twelve years old, and the choir needed recruits. Whether my friend was authorized to put the matter to me in just the way he did I now have some doubt. His method was nevertheless successful - indeed. far beyond his expectations. The choir was due to make its debut on Christmas Eve. Then as a reward for the long weeks of preparation and rehearsal its members were to be taken shortly after Christmas for a visit to San Francisco, some four hundred miles away, for a glamorous visit to Chinatown and kindred delights. What could be simpler, my friend insisted, than to spend a few weeks practicing hymns and anthems, join the Christmas debut and the subsequent San Francisco excursion and then shake the dust of the Episcopal Church off my feet as soon as afterwards as decency would permit?..." - Chapter One from Why I Am An Episcopalian
