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.

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

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

There is not a foot of ground that has not been already scrutinized by a thousand eyes as keen as yours, and the old adage, "If new not true," may be applied to Jerusalem and her monuments with more propriety than to any other place on earth...." - Introduction from Poet and Peasant: A Literary Cultural Approach To The Parables In Luke

"It seems presumptuous for any one, and especially a member of the laity, to attempt to add to that which has already been said and written upon the spiritual life of the Christian priest. Only the overwhelming importance of the subject for the work of the Church, and the fact that in the pressure of outward life we need again and again to be reminded of those unchangeable realities of the inward life which alone give any value to our active work can justify this. But these certain truths are surely sufficient reason for considering once again the special nature of the priest's life of prayer; what it means, what it is for, and why it matters so much...." - from The Parish Priest And The Life Of Prayer

"The manuscript of the present work was in all essentials completed in July 1939. Some steps towards publication were then taken; but the war brought inevitable delays. During the interval which followed some of the additional notes were rewritten and others were added. In all else the book practically unchanged. In The Incarnate Lord (1928) an attempt was made to relate the revelation of God in Christ to current philosophy. But now another problem presented itself. What if the Gospel becomes obscured by our presuppositions and preoccupations, so that we neither see the scope of its application nor suffer it to speak for itself. The conviction grew that this danger was present in the theological situation of today. In particular it became clear that certain aspects of the New Testament were not receiving the attention which was due to due to them...." - Preface from The Common Life In The Body Of Christ

The previous owners name is affixed to the inside of the front cover board. The pages are clear of all markings. Some yellowing has occurred to the pages.

Wigan's collection, The Liturgy in English (LiE), which included in English all the Anglican eucharistic texts from 1549-1960 which he had been able to obtain.1 A second edition was published in 1964,2 and is still in print at the time of this writing. In 1968 this was followed by the present writer's Modern Anglican Liturgies 1958-68 (MAL) from the same Press. MAL supplemented LiE in several ways, not only by adding new texts, but also by giving a brief background history to the production of all texts in both books ( with the exception of the Church of England's own texts of 1549-1662, which are very fully covered in many other writings)...." - Preface from Further Anglican Liturgies: 1968-1975

The previous owners name is written on the front end page. The rest of the pages are clean of any markings. "The Church of England has a rich devotional literature in which the various need of the soul are met by teachers with different experience and different emphasis but who are, none the less, unite by a common tradition. Its value for the present is beyond question; for the past, it not only indicates the kind of spiritual training which underlay the outward observances of religion, but provides if not a history of those ideas which determined the day to day conduct of each man with his neighbor. the obvious purpose of those who wrote these books was to escalate and direct the deepest thoughts and feelings of all whom they could persuade to accept their guidance. It was their aim to make the conscience swift to discern between right and wrong and to make the will obedient to the conscience. It is to the conscience in the lat resort that all great movements of history appeal. Changes in social attitudes reflect changes which have already taken place in the moral standards of the people. And so the study of the classical works of English devotion may be of value not only to those who are interested strictly in religious affairs, but to all those who would understand the wide and deep currents of the nation's life...." - Preface from Anglican Devotion: Studies in the Spiritual Life of the Church of England between the Reformation and the Oxford Movement

A Manual Of Ceremonial

By Marion J. Hatchett

This book is in very good condition.There is little to no wear on the front, back and spine of the cover boards. The edges have slight wear and the corners have minor bumping. The previous owners name is written on the inside of the front cover board. The pages are relatively still white, crisp and clean of all markings. "The results of research in liturgy within the last few decades and the impact of the liturgical Movement Have caused manuals on religious ceremonial which were used in the past decades, such as, for example, A Prayer Book Manual published by the Episcopal Evangelical Fellowship on the one hand, or Ritual Notes by E.C.R. Lamburn and various "Missals" on the other hand, to seem as outdated and as lacking in liturgical nsophistication as, say, the Schofield Reference Bible for Biblical scholarship or the David C. Cook Series for Christian Education. Even the more sophisticated older works such as the pamphlets on ceremonial which have been published by the Alcuin Club or the Anglican Society now seem highly dated. The Church Army has published several helpful and sophisticated customaries for certain rites or days. (A Customary for the Holy Eucharist; A Handbook for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday; The Virgil of Easter Eve) which can be highly recommended, but aside from those little is available that has been arranged with the American Book of Common Prayer or with Services for Trial Use or Authoirized Services 1973 in view. It is an effort to fill this gap that this manual has been compiled...." - from A Manual Of Ceremonial

The binding is loose, but the book is still intact. "In studying the records of man's highest experiences two facts have to be kept in mind. First, that such experiences are incommunicable in themselves: they can be received by man since he is both with God and with things, but they cannot be communicated save in and through a translation which, however apt it be, is not the original itself. This fact is obvious enough in common experience: our attempts to convey to another, say, the glory of a summer's sunset, the magnificence of the sight of Alpine peaks, the exquisite delight of music heard, find us stammering and losing It ourselves in words the inadequacy of which we are only too painfully conscious. It is little wonder, then, that a purely spiritual experience, but incompletely understood by the recipient of it, should suffer a similar inhibition, as all those who have endeavoured to speak of such have known...." - Introduction from Saint John Of The Cross: 1542-1591 Doctor Of Divine Love An Introduction To His Philosophy, Theology, And Spirituality
