A New Religious America

By Diana L. Eck

"The September 11, 2001, catastrophe brought to the United States a new consciousness of the transformation of American society that is the subject of this book. During the lazy summer months of 2001, as I spoke about a new religious America to audiences across the country, I found many people still surprised to learn about America's new religious diversity and relatively challenged to think about what this diversity means for America. Muslim voter registration drives? Hindu temples being built in the suburbs? Turbaned Sikhs going to court over job discrimination? These were relatively new considerations for most of us...." - Preface: After September 11 from A New Religious America: How a "Christian Country" Has Become the World's Most Religiously Diverse Nation

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.

It is the most popular book in human history, and through the centuries millions have risked their lives to have their own Bible.

In our worship the people have always taken an active and significant part, and a zeal for corporate worship has featured every period of renewal within Protestantism. Our hymn book, therefore, bears testimony to our concern that worship should be first and foremost an act of prayer and praise to God, understood and entered into by the whole company of the faithful...." - Preface from Pilgrim Hymnal

For the most part they are agreeably representative of characteristic aspects of German life and character. Only one story, Friedrich, is by a non-German writer. Anglo-Saxon readers may be struck by the sentimental strain in most of these authors; but sentimentality is a characteristic of the German, and we must take him as he is...." - Preface from Helles und Dunkles: An Intermediate German Reader
