At All Times And In All Places

By Massey H. Shepherd, Jr.

This book is in very good condition. There is minimal wear 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 title page and affixed on the front end page. The pages are yellowed and tanned. "The six chapters of this book are sketches depicting typical scenes of the celebration of the Holy Communion in different periods of Christian history. Each period has impressed upon the rite its own special emphasis and meaning, its own taste in ceremonial and artistic adornment. Yet the service remains throughout the ages essentially the same as that which the apostles received from the Lord Jesus at the Last Supper. It is the unity of spirit amidst the diversity of gifts- "at all times and in all places" - that constitutes the theme of this book. For the reader who will take his place with sympathy and imagination among the worshippers in theses several services, it is hoped that he will find his own participation in our glorious heritage of Common Prayer enlarged and enriched in meaning, and his consciousness of his place in the communion of saints deepened and broadened in perspective.

Religious Communities in The Episcopal Church and in the Anglican Church in Canada

The pages are unmarked but beginning to yellow and tan. The binding is tight and solid. "The Religious Life is not merely a devout life given to much churchgoing. It is that, but it is much more than that. The word religious is said to mean "under bond" or "under rule." Religious are men and women who have bound themselves by a vow to God to live their lives in a community under a rule according to three Evangelical Counsels. How can such a life be justly considered strange or eccentric or selfish? It is no more than an attempt to live the Christian life in its fullness and perfection." - Chapter 1.

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowed, but clear of any markings. "We are in the midst of a theological revolution. It is not that the present well-known attempts to rethink and restate the Christian faith are entirely original, either in approach or in content; a good deal of all this has long been in learned books and in seminary lectures. But now more than ever, the process is going on in public. A definitive point - both revealing as to the long course of private dialogue in this regard and causing more public expression - was the recent publication of Honest to God by John A.T. Robinson, Bishop of Woolwhich. Since its appearance, and innumerable responses in books, reviews, articles, and sermons (affirmative, negative or qualified), hundreds of thousands of people, inside and outside the Church, have been affected by learning about this long and grueling revolution in Christian thinking and by reading various attempts to check or suppress it....." - Preface and a Note on Method from A Time For Christian Candor

Confirmation

The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board and his seal is affixed to the front cover page. The pages are yellowed and tanned but clear of any markings. "This volume does not form part of the series entitled 'The form of the Servant', although I hope that it may be regarded as further illustrating the principles of biblical interpretation there adopted. In the course of the past century there has been amongst Anglicans a periodic discussion of matters connected with baptism and confirmation. During the second half of this period, however, a number of new factors have been contributing to the development of a fresh situation. Amongst these are the growing recognition that both Jewish and more ancient backgrounds are all-important and secondly the recovery of early liturgical texts amongst which The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus stands out. My own interest was first aroused by F. Gavin's small, but learned, book on The Jewish antecedents of The Christian Sacraments (1928), which showed a close continuity between Jewish and Christian forms of initiation and which, in that respect, is still highly relevant. For example, it makes clear the strongly Jewish background of the Hippolytan rites, and even a substantial identity of rubrics....." - Foreword from Confirmation: It's Place In The Baptismal Mystery

""When answering my letters, requesting information about their communities, several Superiors have asked why, as a Roman Catholic, I should be sufficiently interested in Anglican religious orders to think it worth while to write a book about them! Very much the same surprise has been expressed by some of my co-religionists when I mentioned the work on which I was engaged. So I explained that the subject is one which has attracted me for nearly half a century, ever since I was a youth of fifteen and chanced to pick up a copy of The Life of Father Ignatius, O.S.B., The Monk of Llanthony by the Baroness de Bertouch (London, 1940) - a strange introduction to the monastic life! Since then this interest has grown, rather than decreased. It was revived definitely about fifteen years ago when I added a long introductory chapter, dealing with religious communities in the Church of England, to The Benedictines of Caldey (London, 1940). Then one day it struck me that it was high time that somebody wrote an up-to-date history of Anglican religious communities...." - Foreword from The Call of the Cloister: Religious Communities And Kindred Bodies In The Anglican Communion

In the Introduction, the purposes and methods of New Testament study are discussed, and the approach and scope of this book is explained.The author assumes that the New Testament books will be read, so that the reader will come to know of their writers. The outlines of the books of the New Testament are intended to help the reader master their structure and content; for this reason, they usually appear before the statement of critical problems and the comments of scholars on them. Learning what others think about books of the Bible should never become a substitute for reading the text in its entirety...." Foreword from Interpreting The New Testament

The pages are crisp, white and clear of any markings. "For nearly two millenia, the Bible has been the cardinal text for Judaism and Christianity. Its stories and characters are part of both the repertoire of Western literature and the vocabulary of educated women and men. It is, however, more than a collection of ancient tales. Even before a canonical list of books considered sacred scripture or holy writ was established, the writings we now call the Bible were considered normative: they laid down the essential principles of how human beings should deal with God and with each other. Te practice of quoting from, an alluding to, earlier texts as authoritative is found within the Bible itself and has continued unabated in subsequent Jewish and Christian writings. At the same time, the Bible has also been formative; subsequent generations of believers have seen themselves as descended from, and in continuity with, those to whom God had spoken and for whom he had acted definitively in the past, and the recital of those words and events has been instrumental in shaping the religious communities of succeeding generations. The Bible has thus had an immeasurable influence on Judaism and Christianity, on the cultures of which they have formed a part, and on all those traditions in some ways derived from them, such as Islam...." - Introduction from The Oxford Companion to the Bible

One of these has regarded the Lutheran Church as a new communion dating from Luther's days. The reformers, however, were not innovators. Rather they sought to restore the church to its original foundations. This volume begins with the early church since the true purpose of the Reformation church can be understood only in the light of the preceding 1,5000 years...." - Preface from The Church of the Lutheran Reformation: A Historical Survey of Lutheranism

In 1959 the Liturgical Press published a prime example of that with the first edition of Our Parish Prays and Sings.Through several editions, including the Book of Sacred Song, the American parish has come to know the best of classical Christian hymnody, in both the vernacular and the Latin chant. Much of the tradition of thirty years in promoting congregational song has been included in The Collegeville Hymnal, with emphasis as well on music and texts of notable merit gleaned from the work of contemporary composers and writers. Indeed, particular attention has been paid to texts from which archaic or non-inclusive language has been eliminated, except where poetic importance precludes change...." - Introduction from The Collegeville Hymnal

It lies at the heart of so many discussions between churches, as well as of some of the most controversial and sensitive matters which face us all. The nature and exercise odf authority will be a vital issue at the 1988 Lambeth Conference...." - Foreword from Authority in the Anglican Communion: Essays Presented to Bishop John Howe

"Am I perhaps a little inclined to understate the interest of those much-admired manuscripts discovered near the Dead Sea? By this I do not mean that I grudge them any of the importance that all the most competent specialists agree in ascribing to them. But neither do I go so far as to think that the discovery was the most extraordinary that could have possibly been made of the vanished world in which the Christian religion was born and bred. For this I have a personal but sufficient reason - I know of some other writings, a little less ancient (by some centuries) than the texts of Qumran; but richer, and they illuminate with the greatest abundance of detail one of the most obscure movements in the earliest centuries of our era. It is of these Coptic manuscripts found in Upper Egypt, and of the circumstances in which they were brought to light, that I propose to give a general account in this first book...." - Introduction from The Secret Books Of The Egyptian Gnostics: An Introduction to the Gnostic Coptic manuscripts discovered at Chenoboskion
