"Toward the end of the presidential campaign of 1824, John Quincy Adams, one of the four candidates for the office, left his duties as secretary of state in Washington and returned to his home in Quincy, Massachusetts, there to roam around the cemetery and look at tombstones of his ancestors and meditate on the past and future. He walked among the graves of the four generations of his father's family. He singled out the tomb of Henry Adams, the first to come from England and settle in Braintree, now Quincy, around 1640; then there was Joseph Adams, Sr., and his wife Abagail Baxter, and Joseph Adams, Jr., and his second wife, Hannah Bass...." - Chapter One from John Quincy Adams: The American Presidents

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

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)

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 previous owner has labeled his name on the front inside cover board and placed his stamp on the front end page. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "The capitulation of the Earl of Tyrone in 1603 may justifiably be seen as the closing act in the long struggle of the native Irish to co-exist with the steady encroachment of English domination in Ireland. It did not mark the end of resistance, but the nature of that resistance altered in substance and in purpose as the ensuing centuries unfolded. It is arguable that the defeat of the Ulster Irish was already accomplished with the disastrous battle of Kinsale and the subsequent Treaty of Mellifont, but only with the departure of the defeated leadership in 1607 was the way wholly cleared for wholesale English conquest of Ulster. The last of the Irish provinces to resist, Ulster, proved to be the most thoroughly restructured, to such an extent that, with the coming of Partition, in 1921, Ulster clung tenaciously to the British link steadily forged in the seventeenth century. This Companion covers a 300-year period in the history of Ireland, from 1603 to 1921. It seeks to explain, through its various topics, the complexity of Irish history, whilst at the same time seeking to avoid an Anglo-centric viewpoint...." - Introduction from A Companion to Irish History: From the Submission of Tyrone to Partition: 1603-1921

To a degree never witnessed before, Christianity became a worldwide religion, spread over the whole inhabited earth. And an unprecedentedly large number and range of Christian communities, hitherto separated by doctrinal and institutional factors, set about a serious process of consultation, co-operation, communion and even union among themselves, inspired by the prayer of the Lord that his followers "be one," "so that the world may believe" (John 17:21)…." - Introduction from Dictionary Of The Ecumenical Movement

Thomas Cranmer

By Diarmaid MacCulloch

This book is in very good condition. The dust jacket has little to no wear as well as the cover boards. The pages are yellowing but clear of any markings. "This book tells a man's life-story, and tries to do it as far as possible in sequence. It is selective in what it tells of the story, although readers may find that hard to believe in what has ended up as an extensive text. Certainly, it is not an impartial narrative: as I have written the tale, I have afforded myself the luxury of having opinions about the actions, motives and influence of one who attracted controversy and wildly polarized comment in his life and in the manner of his death. Ever since he was burned at the stake in Oxford in 1556, Thomas Cranmer's story has frequently been told in two completely contrasting ways: he has been portrayed as a hero or as a villain...." - Introduction from Thomas Cranmer: A Life

There is some bumping and fraying on the covers The pages are yellowing and tanning, but are clear of any markings. "Our Name, We get the name Presbyterian from the Bible. That statement may surprise some people who have been reading their Bibles for years and do not recall having come across the word "Presbyterian." We must remember that the Bible was not originally written in English. The New Testament was written in Greek and the Old Testament in Hebrew. By 150 B.C. the Old Testament had been translated into Greek. When we turn to the Greek Bible we find a word that occurs about sixty times in the New Testament and about a hundred times in the Old Testament; this word, when pronounced in Greek, sounds very much like the word Presbyterian. It is from this word that we get our name. It means an elder. Literally speaking, a Presbyterian church is a church governed by elders. If we may expand that definition a little: A Presbyterian church is a church with a representative form of government by elders elected by the people...." - Chapter One from Presbyterians: Their History And Beliefs

"The pilgrim who visits the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem faces several puzzles. Is this after all the place where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified and buried? Why is it inside the city walls, not outside as one had supposed? How does the present building relate to the original site? How did the place come to be so different from what the New Testament leads us to expect (a garden with a tomb in it, close to a hill called Golgotha)? And, even supposing this is roughly the right place, is this the right spot? Is this rocky outcrop, now enclosed within an upstairs chapel, actually the top of Golgotha? Is this marble slab really where the dead Jesus was laid? Is this highly ornate shrine really the site of the tomb? And - a different sort of question, but a pressing one for many visitors - why are different groups of Christians still squabbling about who owns the place? These puzzles, though do not noticeably affect the appeal of the place. Despite archaeological, historical and ecclesiastical squabbles, the church retains its evocative and spiritual power. Pilgrims still flock to it in their hundreds of thousands...." - Chapter One from The Resurrection Of The Son Of God

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

At the conclusion of our time together we were in full accord that it had been time well spent.
