"The General Assemblies of 1980 and 1983 directed that a hymnal be developed 'using inclusive language and sensitive to the diverse nature' of the church. The Program Agency and the General Assembly Mission Board responded by creating a hymnbook committee of eighteen persons, reflecting the breath and diversity of the church. The group included hymnologists and professional musicians. Members of the committee, which was established in accordance with General Assembly guidelines, were from small and large churches and represented the ethnic diversity of the denomination. They sought to affirm the centrality of the sacraments, ecumenical and missions dimensions, the perspectives of women, and the concerns of youth and age...." - Preface from The Presbyterian Hymnal, Pew Edition

All round her the sea was a flaming white glitter, the air was hot high summer, the wind in a mad mood; she was twelve years old, and Tom Seymour, who was Admiral of the Fleet and her favorite step-uncle, was talking to her as though she were rather more; he was joking and chaffing her, but then he did that with all women, even with the Queen...." - Chapter One from Young Bess

By Scott and Kimberly Hahn

"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

My father backed the Chevrolet out of its place in the hay barn next to the farm cart and helped my mother into the front seat on the afternoon of September 9, 1934. He made the trip in little more than an hour, barely slowing down for the stop signs in Dixon, Folkstone, and Holly Ridge. I was born the next morning with rambling in my blood and fifty miles already under my belt...." - Chapter One from A Life on the Road

Peoples Mass Book

This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is some fraying on the cover boards. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "This section of the book gives the user all the material which he needs to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy. The proper chants are printed in full so that they can be chanted or recited. The community should listen to the official proclamation of the message by the celebrant or reader and the prayers of the priest. A helpful but short commentary on the theme is often arbitrary since many celebrations just do not have a central idea. Whereas some of the readings were deliberately combined to develop a theme, other arrangements of Epistles and Gospels have been so shuffled through the centuries that there is little natural relationship between them. The commentary given here is a possible way of interpreting the readings around one point of meditation and instruction...." - Introduction To The Proper Section from Peoples Mass Book

By Richard Rohr

This book is in very good condition. There is no wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is no bumping or fraying, and the pages are clear of markings. The pages are white, crisp and clear. "As I began to say in the Introduction, the task of the first half of life is to create a proper container for one's life and answer the first essential questions: "What makes me significant?" "How can I support myself?" and "Who will go with me?" The task of the second half of life is, quite simply, to find the actual contents that this container was meant to hold and deliver. As Mary Oliver puts it, "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" In other words, the container is not an end in itself, but exists for the sake of your deeper and fullest life, which you largely do not know about yourself! Far too many people just keep doing repair work on the container itself and never "throw their nets into the deep" (John 21:6) to bring in the huge catch that awaits them...." - Chapter One from Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Better Badminton

By Carl H. Jackson and Lester A. Swan

This book is in good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. The pages are yellowing, and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "Badminton in this country presents an interesting case of 'arrested development.' The game is of course a direct lineal descendant of battledore and shuttlecock. Its origin is therefore traceable to India, but its name comes from England--from Badminton, county seat of the Duke of Beaufort. The actual connection between Badminton and the game as played today, or its importance in the history of the sport, is not clear. The name, in any event, has stuck. The game was introduced into New York in 1878 by two gentlemen, one returning from India and the other from England. In spite of the fact that the club founded by them has remained in existence ever since (it is the oldest badminton club in the world with a continued existence), the game remained relatively obscure in this country until its renaissance in recent years. Since this revival of interest, its growth has been rapid, until today it is one of the fastest, if not the fastest growing sport in this country...." - Introduction from Better Badminton

"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

Some teams are never in good condition due to lack of work, while other teams are overworked. A team must have both physical and mental conditioning; they work hand in hand...." - Chapter One from Championship Basketball

I felt that this tribute was long overdue, but I was not prepared for the avalanche of letters and responses touched off by that book...." - Preface by The Greatest Generation Speaks: Letters and Reflections

Their style was almost a private one to New York City then, for it had been invented only fifteen years before in a vacant lot on Murray Hill, fashioned from several other ball games and kept for a time as the property of four or five gentlemen's clubs...." - Chapter One from Baseball In America
