3 ABBOTT T.K. A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Epistles to the Ephesians and to the Colossians.
T. &. T. Clark 1897-01-01 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 1897 by T. &. T. Clark with 400 pages incluiding advertisements and prelims. The text contains about 100 pages with scattered underlining in mostly pencil but ocassionally in pen. The binding is sound though the front hinge is cracking. The pages are toned with moderately scattered foxing. The corners are bumped and the tips are rubbed through. No dust jacket. The covers show some cloth erosion. The top page edges are heavy soiled with accumulated dust. PREFACE :THE following Commentary is primarily philological. Its aim is to ascertain with as great precision as possible the actual meaning of the writer's language. The Commentaries which have been regularly consulted are those of Chrysostom and Theodore of Mopsuestia, amongst the ancients ; and amongst the moderns, Alford, Barry, De Wette, Eadie, Ellicott, Meyer (W. Schmidt), Moule, von Soden, and the Speaker's ; also for Ephesians, Harless, Stier, and Macpherson ; and for Colossians, Lightfoot The Commentary of von Soden, though concise, is very acute and independent. Mr. Moule's also, although bearing a modest title, is of great value. Other writers have been occasionally consulted. Much use has been made of Fritzsche's occasional notes in his various commentaries, especially in connexion with the illustration of the language of the Epistles from classical and late Greek authors. Wetstein, of course, has not been overlooked. The text adopted is that of the Revisers, except where otherwise stated. T. K. ABBOTT

The binding is sound. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. The page edges are toned. The bottom corner of the front cover is creased. Introduction: She sits in her favorite chair at her home in Powersite, Missouri, her bobbed gray hair framing her strong face. It is a face lined with years of work—of concern, of caring, of love for her family, for those she has seen saved and not saved, of love of God.Behind her glasses her eyes glow with memory and anticipation. At 88, she still emanates strength. And something more. She has a vitality, a confidence of having lived life not always eas-ily, but well. And always for the Lord.That confidence was hard gained. For Almeda Brittain is a preacher. A woman preacher.She never wanted to be one. In the days when she grew up, the early 1900s, women in such positions were few. As she remembers, "There weren't ANY women preachers in our area at that time."Women preachers were oddities. They had a difficult time, because preaching was considered a man's calling. Few male ministers of the Word welcomed women as their peers.As a teenager, Almeda liked leading in prayer, and she liked to talk about God's love for mankind. She just didn't like that title—woman preacher.She recalls the one such female she knew when she was very young. The woman, called Sister Tosh, was traveling in the Ozarks when she came to visit Almeda's family after a tornado hit their farm. Sister Tosh always wore a white dress with long, full skirts, long puffed sleeves nipped in at the wrists, and a high collar with a little black tie. She wore her long black hair scraped back into a bun."People called her Old Sister Tosh," Almeda says. "Well, I was young. I didn't want to be called old."She smiles at the memory of those youthful vanities she later prayed so hard to overcome, and how she pleaded with the Lord to let her do something else with her life."I remember struggling with the strong convictions the Lord kept sending my way," she says. "Oh, it wasn't because I didn't want to do it. I felt the calling and knew He had work for me. I didn't want to do any other, although I taught school for years and enjoyed that, too. But I felt I couldn't bear to be called a preacher."She would pray, "Oh, God, I'll do anything. I'll sing. I'll pray. I'll call for mourners. I'll do anything You want me to do if I will not have to be called a woman preacher." But Almeda knew, in her heart, that was her destiny.Finally she came to terms with the inevitable and announced her calling. On the third Sunday in December 1924, she delivered her first sermon as a preacher. She was 21 years old."I remember it still. It was at St. James School, which was often used for meetings. My sister, Josie, was with me. The morning was cold; there was about an inch of snow on the ground. Mother was at Uncle Manford's taking care of his wife, Aunt Clara, and their newborn daughter, Margarette."Daddy had to take mother some clean clothes, so I got ready and combed Josie's long, blonde hair. I braided two long braids down her back. Then we put on our coats and I put our song books on my left arm, with the Bible on top.'We walked along the wagon road, dodging the snow which weighted the limbs of the cedars along the roadside. There was no conversation. But every few minutes I'd say, 'Josie, pray for me'. And she would answer, 'I am'."When we finally completed the two miles to the school house, we found the door had been left open and leaves had blown in over the floor. And there was no kindling for the fire. So we went out to the fence corner, scraped back the snow and got some sticks to start a fire. •"Someone had put cigarette stubs in the ashes, and I had to clean that out. Dust had blown in on the seats, so I found a rag which had evidently been used to wash off the blackboard. It had been squeezed and had frozen together like that. I pulled it apart so I could wipe the dust off the seats and desks."Only about three dozen people made it to church that cold winter morning, but that was enough for Almeda. One important person was missing, however. John Brittain, whom she later would marry, was on a hunting trip. She could not help but be glad."I knew he wasn't a Christian," she says, "and I believed he would quit me for preaching." That was part of the heartache. For she had loved John Brittain for years.One day in the week following her first sermon, she was walking into town for the mail when she saw John coming to meet her.'We met about half way between the Post Office and the top of a little hill, in what was a field in those days," she says. "He had a big, sweet smile on his face as he put out his hand."Almeda was almost afraid to ask if he knew what she had done. But she had to be certain."Did you hear what happened last Sunday?" she asked him. He said he had.She recalls, "I just braced myself and said, Well, what areyou going to do about it? He gripped my hand and in his kind, tender voice said, Til never throw a straw in your way.1 Thank God, he never did."For nearly 70 years she has spread the Gospel, as much an evangelist as anything. She has baptized the saved in farm ponds, in creeks, rivers, and in the Pacific Ocean.Supported by her "beloved John," she has traveled from coast to coast to answer her call from God."I could sing a song from here to the pasture about that," she says. And the strength of her voice, the vigor of her words, leave no doubt she could do just that, if she wanted. "And if God willed," she adds.It is a strength that has been challenged periodically, for the way has not been easy. Sometimes, it has been downright hard. But Almeda Brittain's determination has prevailed."The theme of my life has been based on II Timothy 4:2, 'Preach the Word!. I have done that," she says.And many souls have been saved.

1941 THE NEW TESTAMENT Translated from the Latin Vulgate Challoner Rheims Revision Catholic, Bible in English.
6 Bible in English. 1941 THE NEW TESTAMENT Translated from the Latin Vulgate Challoner Rheims Revision Catholic
Paterson NJ: St. Anthony Guild Press, 1941. 1941-01-01 Hardcover Used: Acceptable Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This hardcover Bible was published in 1941 by the St. Anthony Guild Press with 774. Lacking rear endpaper. The text is unmarked. The binding is weakened as the hinges are cracked. The pages are toned. The cover is moderately worn around the edges. The corners are bumped. The word of the Lord endures forever," is the saying of a great prophet (Isa. 40, 8) and of the Prince of the Apostles (1 Pet. 1, 25).In her belief in the divine authority and the perfect truth of the Bible, as being the inspired Word of God, the Catholic Church has never hesitated. Nor-has the Church forgotten that this sacred Book was destined by its Author to convey His message to all His faithful servants of every place and time. Neither has she overlooked the fact that this message must lie sealed and silent to many of her children unless given them in their own. language, at least by the voice of their pastors, if not by means of the written page.Further, the Church has always realized that Holy Scripture was committed to her charge by virtue of its very origin and object. Like the Apostolic Tradition of Christ's teaching, the Bible, too, is a treasury of divine revelation. As such, it can have no rightful guardian and dispenser except that Church which Christ formed and commissioned to teach to all the world the truths revealed for man's salvation. There can be no graver crime than the least cor-ruption of that eternal truth which Christ has brought us. The Church is, therefore, watchful over Holy Scripture; and not only over its message, but likewise over its written transmission.In exercising .this guardianship, the Church has given special sanction to that Latin version which, because of its common use for centuries, won the name of "Vulgate." Her intention in this is primarily to declare which of many Latin versions is to be regarded as substantially accurate and safe in all matters of faith and morals. It was from this Latin text that most of the vernacular versions of Europe were made. It was also from this text that our first printed Catholic Bible in English was taken.In 1560 the Catholic Church had been outlawed in England. The Catholics who remained in the country faced a particular danger to their faith from English versions of the Bible which altered the true meaning of the Scriptures. To meet this danger there was urgent need of a more faithful, a Catholic, version. This need was met by the "Rheims and Douay Version." It was so called because the New Testament was printed at Rheims in 1582, and the Old Testament at Douay in 1609-10. It was the work of exiled English priests and educators, the chief of whom was Dr. Gregory Martin.The Rheims-Douay remained the standard English version for Catholic use until near the time of the American Revolution. By this time the language had passed through many of those changes which are natural to all living tongues. It was Bishop Challoner, Vicar Apostolic of the London District, who saw the pressing need of an English version of the Bible more in keeping with the time. In spite of his heavy pastoral labors, he produced a new version of the entire Bible in English in 1750. Challoner regarded his work as merely a revision of the Rheims-Douay, as its title page shows. The Catholic version in English which is best known to us all, both in England and in America, is still practically that of Challoner. Other Catholic scholars sought to improve on his work, and some of our current editions are indebted to them as well; but Challoner's Bible has been the framework and the substance of our own down to the present time.But, in its turn, Challoner's version has suffered loss of value because of progressive changes in our language. The consequent need of revision in which it stands has been recognized for a long time. Challoner's text was made the approved English version for Catholics in America by the Archbishop of Baltimore and the Bishops of the United States in 1810. The approbation was confirmed by the Hierarchy at the First Provincial Council of Baltimore (1829), but at the same time the emendation of the "Douay" text, as Challoner's was still described, was earnestly recommended. This matter of the improvement of Challoner's version came up again at the Ninth Provincial Council of Baltimore (1858). The Sacred Congregation de Propaganda Fide sanctioned in a particular way this desire for a better vernacular version, suggesting that it be entrusted to a group of theologians experienced in biblical studies.Notwithstanding this encouragement to undertake a revision of the approved version, the closing decades of the last century, and the first of the present century, found the Church in America too much occupied with other concerns and not sufficiently equipped to attempt this work. Archbishop Kenrick undertook the great task of revising the entire Bible, but his work never met with general acceptance. The result was that we have continued to use editions of the English Bible which are, in language and substance, the text that Bishop Challoner gave us a hundred and ninety years ago.The passage of time has neither lessened the weaknesses of this version nor done away with the demand for its improvement. In the meantime, however, the number of priests in America trained in the theological sciences, and notably in the specialized discipline of biblical studies, has greatly increased. Parallel to this growth there has been a marked increase of popular interest in the study of Holy Scripture. This progress has brought to light again the unsatisfactory condition of our vernacular version, it has reawakened the desire for a version accommodated to the needs of our time, and it has called attention to the fact that we now possess the adequate means to produce a worthy English text.The English version which is presented in this volume is the answer of the Church in America to this need. Its preparation was requested and supervised by the Episcopal Committee of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. The principles upon which it rests were submitted to the Secretary and to other members of the Biblical Commission at Rome, and received complete approval. It is the accomplishment of some twenty-seven Catholic biblical scholars, all men of training and experience in their particular field, who have devoted more than five years to the work. Many other scholars have had part in it, whether as special editors or as critics. It enjoys, therefore, in the first place the authority necessary in any serious attempt to meet the requirements of an improved Catholic version in English. And it claims a scholarship commensurate with that authority.While new in many of its aspects, this text is not a new version, but a revision of the work done by Bishop Challoner. While that venerable text has lost a great deal, of its value with the lapse of time, it retains much that is commendable. To produce the type of version required in our day, it was necessary to eliminate many of the characteristics of the older version, and even to change many of its familiar passages; but there was no reason for setting it aside entirely. In fact, this revised text can claim the advantage of preserving in an improved form the version to which English-speaking Catholics have become accustomed.The English text now being presented retains as much as possible of the version it seeks to replace. And yet, in striving for expression that is modern, much of the general style of Challoner's work has been improved upon. Many terms found in his version are no longer current in the sense in which he used them. The close adherence to Latin sentence structure, so evident in his text, is not the usage of our time. Such modifications are inevitable. It may be stated, however, that only such alterations in the Challoner text have been made in the revised edition as were necessary to give a simple and clear modern version.However, this present text is much more than an effort to bring the language of Challoner's version into conformity with modern English idiom. It is a revision in the sense that it goes back to the source upon which Challoner drew, and reconsiders in a thorough way the accurate rendering of the divine message in the language of our day.Like both the Rheims and the Challoner versions, the revised text rests upon the Latin Vulgate. This has been made necessary by a desire to have the version available for liturgical use. The excellence of the Vulgate as an ancient interpretation of the New Testament is an added advantage. The Clementine edition of the Vulgate is the main source of this revision. The readings of the Clementine, however, have been improved in not a few instances by recourse to the witnesses for a more ancient text of the Vulgate. This tends to bring the text basic to the present version very close to the modern critical editions of the original Greek. Where the Latin text differs from the Greek in such a way as to affect the meaning, attention is called to the fact in the footnotes.One immediate influence of the Vulgate will be observed in the spelling of proper names. The Latin form has been retained as more familiar to Catholics, and in some instances closer to the original pronunciation.In addition to improving on Challoner's use of the Latin text, the revised version will show the results of a more thorough method of interpretation. The Latin text often reflects the peculiarities and idiom of its Semitic and Greek origin. In accordance with the rules of sound biblical interpretation, the present version takes this into account; and when the Latin text clearly supposes such elements, it renders them in the sense that is native to them. In no case, however, has the Latin text been set aside in favor of the Greek. It can, therefore, be said that the present version is in every sense a translation of the Vulgate.As a further aid to the reading and understanding of the divine message, this new text abandons the old verse form of Challoner for the still older paragraphing of the Rheims-Douay Bible; Another improvement is offered in the addition of headings that show the main divisions of the books, and marginal titles describing the contents of their subdivisions. Citations from the Old Testament are, for the most part, set off in the center of the page. Those that are poetic in form are set in such a way as to manifest the parallelism of Hebrew poetry. Some other important citations, though not poetry in the original, are for emphasis written in verse form.This revised version is presented with the confidence that it will advance the reading and appreciation of the New Testament. It is offered with the hope that it may awaken new interest in the Word of God, and that it may bring to God's children the manifold blessings of His Letter to them. At the same time, it is presented with the humble prayer that, as it has been prepared with all diligence and care, it may not interpret the divine message in any way except in the full sense intended by the Holy Spirit. It is He who has given it to us for our instruction, and that we may have hope. (Rom. 15, 4.)

According to My Gospel Montclair Sermons Hugh Black Montclair NJ 1st Congregational Church, Black, Hugh
7 Black, Hugh According to My Gospel Montclair Sermons Hugh Black Montclair NJ 1st Congregational Church
Fleming H. Revell Co. 1913-01-01 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 1913 by the Fleming H. Revell Company with 312 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. No dust jacket. The pages are toned. The corners are lightly bumped. THE sermons in this volume were preached in the First Congregational Church of Montclair, New Jersey. After the death of their late minister, Dr. Bradford, I took charge of the pulpit for a year and a half. It was a service of great happiness to myself, and I received so much kindness at the hands of the people that I desire to associate their name with this book.The selection was limited by the fact that comparatively few of the sermons were written. During the whole period, at the Vesper Service I preached on the Teaching of Jesus, but kept no record of the sermons. This explains the frequency of texts from the Old Testament in this volume. The particular contents were chosen from the point of view of variety, and I notice now that, though single sermons, they are all expository in character.It still remains true, as I believe it must always be true, that the Christian preacher must go to the Bible for his material. There we have the classic literature of our religion, and the history of faith, and the record of the great experiences of the soul of man. One of the chief tasks of the pulpit still is to explain, and interpret, and illustrate the teaching of the Bible. The roots of all our Christian ideas and ideals are found in that soil. It makes also for sanity to bring everything to the test of the normal religious experience, whose history we find in the Bible.

Transformation How Glocal Churches Transform Lives & the World Church Growth, Bob Roberts Jr.
8 Bob Roberts Jr. Transformation How Glocal Churches Transform Lives & the World Church Growth
031026717X / 9780310267171 Zondervan 2006-01-17 Hardcover New New Hardcover 
This brand new hardcover book was published in 2006 by Zondervan with 187 pages. Author and pastor Bob Roberts Jr. is one of the architects of what church and Christian community can become in this new century. His unique approach to Christianity is based on what he calls T-Life (transformed life), which leads to a T-World (transformed world). Drawing inspiration from early church history and the emerging church in the developing world, Roberts envisions a new way of engaging the local church to achieve common goals. He calls for building a church culture rather than a church program. Glocal churches create disciples who, transformed by the Holy Spirit, are infiltrating today's culture on a global and local scale. In Roberts's terms, when we establish a relationship with Jesus Christ and begin applying his principles, we experience T-Life (transformed life). Transformation begins with a growing, interactive relationship with God that includes personal and corporate worship. This, in turn, results in community. As community serves others, transformation has both a global and local (glocal) impact and creates T-World. Transformation redefines the focus and practice of the church, not from external bells and whistles, but from the internal transformation of the very character of its people.

Previous owners name present. Full Title: The Making of the Restoration Settlement: The Influence of the Laudians, 1649-1662 The settlement of the Church of England which took place on the restoration of the monarchy after Cromwell's Protectorate is a major landmark in ecclesiastical and in national history. The establishment of the national Church was the triumph of militant High Anglicanism, and the exclusion of the Puritans was the real beginning of nonconformity. The nature of the settlement has always presented a problem to historians—a surprising reversal of religious sentiment among the royalists, and a puzzling deviation from Clarendon's general policy of conciliation. Dr. Bosher has achieved a new and thorough interpretation of the form of the settlement, and of the complex negotiations preceding it, which may well receive permanent acceptance. For the first time real attention is given to the personalities and principles of the Anglicans in exile during the interregnum, the disciples of Laud; it is shown that the cornerstone of their policy, and their success, was the conversion of Clarendon to the principle that the Anglican Church must be restored with the monarchy and without compromising concessions to the Presbyterians. New light is thrown also on the activities of members of this group who remained at home, an underground movement in Cromwellian England working for the preservation of the Anglican tradition. In a work of original and fair-minded scholarship Dr. Bosher has written the first full account of the Laudians' stand to which the Church of England owes its breadth of doctrine and practice, its tension of of authority and freedom, which is its unique heritage in the Christian world.

Inscribed by the author, " To Jack Young, With all best wishes and thanks for your interest in my book. Malcom Boyd, St. George's Indianapolis, Lent, 1958.

Previous owners name present. An interesting critique of the effects of mass media on the perception/propigation of Christianity especially in the eyes of secular society and traditional Biblical Christianity. The author presents stong critiques of various Christian celebrities especially Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. Many of the author's insights have a direct correlation to the state of Christianity today in the eyes of secular society and traditional Biblical Christianity. Excerpt from Chapter One:IF WE ARE to understand the world around us, and to exist as Christians within it, it is necessary for us to be able to interpret it in a Christian way. Whether we are listening to Miss Lena Home in the Empire Room of the Waldorf-Astoria, or seeing Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night on Broadway, or watching the film The Pride and the Passion in a movie theatre, or looking at Playhouse 90 on TV, or reading a Daphne du Maurier novel or thumbing through the pages of The Saturday Evening Post or The Reporter: we are—if we are Christians—doing such things as Christians, and with a Christian point of view. If we claim to be Christians but do not take our Christian point of view with us out of the church building into the world, we may be Christians nominally, but surely we are not Christians existentially.As we move out of the church building Sunday into the world, it is imperative that we know what the Christian faith has to say about the nature of God and of man, about life and death, about sin and forgiveness, about success and failure. Our evangelism is at least partly meaningless if we cannot speak within our milieu and time in understandable language about basic human experiences. To offer abstract answers, out of correlation with man's deepest questions, is not to evangelize. It is necessary to offer concrete answers to the primary questions man asks about his mysterious life and death.The questions which men—each one of us—are asking about the elemental facts of life are quite basic. Frequently the self-labeled agnostic or skeptic is much more honest than the self-labeled believer or 'religious man' in acknowledging wide areas of doubt and unbelief. One becomes aware of such areas when one talks with clergymen and laymen alike about faith. Many a prominent Christian is more of a skeptic than he dares to confess. Although he makes lip-profession to the Christian Creeds, he may not be able to apply these either to his own life, or to the surge of life about him.The basic reason for this is that no bridge exists between theology and life.One hears, on every side, how sorely this bridge is needed. Here is a man who is called upon to live the Christian life but who does not experience the overwhelming power of God's forgiveness of sins, His gift of ever-renewed life and His blessing of eternal life. There is a woman whose life has been spent in the very heart of church, yet she does not understand the meaning of the Holy Spirit. A businessman who acknowledges God and even offers a grace before meals (although he is not a church member), is shocked when one mentions the sovereignty and role of God in man's sexual life and business life. "God turns His back on some things," he says. "God is holy, and some things are shameful and sinful, and God does not see them." Many Christians are unable also to see how their faith relates to labor problems, business transactions, political issues, college life, or ordinary neighborhood life. It is not surprising then, that the relationship between the Christian faith and a new movie or novel should go totally unrecognized by most nominal Christians.It is ironical that theology—of all subjects—should be given over into the hands of an elite. Theologians frequently lose sight of the forest for the trees, and conspicuously fail to relate their theology to the pressing problems of life as men and women are experiencing these in the world. Even when theologians are concerned with such acutely real problems, often their concern resembles—from the I standpoint of ordinary parish life—a theological dust storm on a distant horizon.....

Essays in the Religious Thought in the West Westcott, Brooke Foss Westcott
11 Brooke Foss Westcott Essays in the Religious Thought in the West Westcott
The Macmillan and Co. 1891 First Edition Hardcover Used: Good Dust Jacket: None Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 1891 by Macmillan and Company with 408 pages. Ex-library copy. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound though the hinges are weakening. The corners are bumped with the tips rubbed through. Library treatments include call letters on the spine, library bookplate, card pocket. The majority of the leaves are uncut (page 25 on). Pages 395-398 have a closed tear starting at mid-foredge and continuining about mid-page. PREFACE The essays which are collected in this small volume are in part fragments of a design which I formed very early in life. It seemed to me that a careful examInation of the religious teaching of representative prophetic masters of the West, if I may use the phrase, would help towards a better understanding of the power of the Christian Creed. Their hopes and their desires, their errors and their silences, were likely, I thought, to shew how far the Gospel satisfies our natural aspirations and illuminates dark places in our experience. The expectation unless I am mistaken, will be found to be justified even by those isolated and imperfect sketches. If the student will extend the same method of inquiry, as I had hoped to do, to Homer, Heraclitus, Virgil, Epictetus, Plotinus-to name the men from whom I believe we may gain most-he will learn, as perhaps he can learn in no other way, what the apostolic message is as a revelation, a revelation not in thought but in life. It may seem to be a paradox- it ought to be a truism- that the Aeneid is the Roman Gospel. The poem gives the ideal of the national religious hero; and few things are more surprising, in the histories of the apostolic age than that Virgil finds no place in the popular estimate of the influences at work in moulding or expressing current opinion.To the Essays on Plato, lAeschylus, Euripides, Origen and Dionysius, originally published in the Contemporary Review (1866, 1867, 1878, 1883), which formed part of my original design I have added four others which illustrate the general thought which is suggested by them. The Faith welcomes all truth, while it supplements external lessons by its own peculiar witness, and places partial and limited expressions of truth in their right relations to one another and to the whole. Nothing lies outside the influence of its transfiguring power. Splendid visions .; burst upon us from unexpected quarters, and we find that they are included in that view of GOD the world and man which lies in the fact of the Incarnation.It is now about five-and-twenty years since the have passed since the Essay was written. Certainly in the days which passed since no call to effort has grown fainter and no prospect less bright. If it wass possible then to make our own the memorable phrase with which Socrates closed his summons to a life of faith, it has been brought home to us in the interval once and again by those who have proved to the last struggle of life that the Word for which Plato longed, as a sure support, has been given to us in Him Whom St. John has made known.B.F.D.

SIGNED With Christ in a Shell Hole C Gordon Brownville Tremont Temple Baptist Pastor, Brownville,, C. Gordon
12 Brownville,, C. Gordon SIGNED With Christ in a Shell Hole C Gordon Brownville Tremont Temple Baptist Pastor
Zondervan Publishing House 1943 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This SIGNED hardcover book was published in 1943 by the Zondervan Publishing House with 139 pages. Flat-signed by the author on the front free endpaper. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound . No dust jacket. The pages are toned. The top front corner is bumped. Previous owners name present. INTRODUCTION: THESE are interesting days in which to be living. They are days of struggle, stress, trial, heartache, defeat and accomplishment. This is an age upon ages telling. Great men and women are needed. Great preachers are necessary!The author of this book is a great preacher, and in a most strategic situation as pastor of Tremont Temple Baptist Church, Boston, Mass. The Temple is a wonderful evangelistic, life-saving station in the heart of a most unique city—Boston. It takes a preacher of unusual ability, training and background to be pastor of such a church. Dr. C. Gordon Brownville is in every way splendidly equipped for this stupendous task.Great congregations fill the spacious halls and auditorium for the services in this "downtown" church. One of the many outstanding ministries of the church is her ministry to the men and women in our country's service. On Sunday evenings, out of congregations of approximately 2,500 people, several hundred of them will be in the "khaki" and the "blue." Indeed, this pastor is ministering to people in uniform and getting responses from them in such a satisfactory way that, while in the main ministering otherwise in this great church, it is the concensus of opinion that he is doing more good than if he were in the chaplaincy of the United States Army.Dr. Brownville's understanding of the man or woman in service makes him a most acceptable speaker to them. The messages which are set forth in this volume were delivered on Sunday evenings recently. They are forceful, vivid, vital, heart-searching, and contain great evangelistic fervor. This chaplain heard them gladly and with great personal spiritual profit. In response to each of them, large numbers of people, both civilian and military, confessed Christ and resolved to live for Him. Because of his enviable record as a soldier in the first World War, Dr. Brownville was decorated by President Wilson with the Distinguished Service Cross. The personal experiences of this man of God in World War I are interwoven with Biblical truth in such a way that the Gospel appeal of the sermons is irresistible.You will enjoy these mighty messages which have blessed the hearts of countless numbers of people, including large numbers of chaplains who were in attendance at the Chaplain School at Harvard University during the period when the messages were delivered. I like to think of Dr. Brownville as the "chaplain in civilian clothes."CHAPLAIN J. WM. MASON

Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters (Complete In One Volume), C.S. Lewis
13 C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters (Complete In One Volume)
0060731877 / 9780060731878 HarperSanFrancisco 2001 Hardcover New New Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This brand new hardcover book was published in 2001 by Harper Collins with 473 pages including advertisments. The dust jacket is unclipped and untorn. ere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters, two of C. S. Lewis's most important and enduring works, are now available in this stunning, collectible hardcover edition. The most popular of C. S. Lewis's works of nonfiction, Mere Christianity has sold several million copies worldwide. The book brings together Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to "explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times." Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations. C. S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, and provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear a powerful, rational case for the Christian faith. It is a collection of scintillating brilliance that remains strikingly fresh for the modern reader and at the same time confirms C. S. Lewis's reputation as one of the leading writers and thinkers of our age......A masterpiece of satire, The Screwtape Letters has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below." At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original. C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of a young man who has just become a Christian. Utilizing this humorous exchange to delve into moral questions about good vs. evil, repentance, and grace, The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation— and triumph over it—ever written......CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably the most influential Christian writer of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was named Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his death. His major contributions in literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and popular theology brought him international renown and acclaim. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include The Chronicles of Narnia, Out of the Silent Planet, The Four Loves, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.

Smith was written to pass on the history of the Schmidoff/Smith family line and impart a few words of practical instruction to his children, Robert and Arlene. As a real estate developer Mr. Smith's greatest legacy was concerning a fascinating section of Arlington, Virginia called Crystal City. However, great Mr. Smith's achievements were as a real este developer they were overshadow by his generous spirit of philantropy which he left as a lasting legacy to the Charles E. Smith Day School, George Washington University and many more institutions, charities and Jewish religious organizations. This book is written in a very personable style and filled with quotes from famous historical figures. Mr. Smith briefly recounts his life while interspersing admonitions to his children. What follows are a couple quotes from the book which embody the life and legacy or Mr. Charles E. Smith who dies just over two years after publishing this book.On the purpose of writing this book: My singular purpose in writing this book is to provide you with a sense of your heritage, a genealogical tree of the Smith/Schmidoff family, and a history—of what remains— about our ancestors in Russia....On immigrating to America:When I came to this country in 1911, I spoke only Yiddish. Surprisingly, I never learned Russian. Having been born in a country village, living with a Rabbi's family during the week for five years, and growing up in a home where only Yiddish was spoken, it never dawned on me that I had neglected to learn the Russian language. Upon my arrival in New York, I was sent to school in Brooklyn where I endeavored to learn English in addition to studying my lessons. At that time there were no English as a Second Language classes for immigrants as there are today. My brothers, sisters and I had to work very hard to learn the language and become Americanized...Concerning his brothers and sisters:Originally there were nine children in my family, but only five of us survived to come to America. Of those five only my sisters Helen and Betty, and I lived full lives. After my mother died, Betty moved to California, married briefly, and then finally relocated to Washington in 1978. It was nice to have her nearby because Helen died in 1963. Betty adored the family, and in her later years acted in the theatre at the Rockville Jewish Community Center. She died in March of 1985.I am the last survivor...On his Philosphy of Life:I have said many times that my commitment is to God, family, and the community. I have tried to honor this commitment all of my life. One of my favorite quotes is,"The Gift of Life is God's Gift to me; What I do with my Life is my Gift to God."Regarding his health and habits as a younger man:But when I was forty-four years, an incident occurred which I interpreted as a Message from God to change some of my habits.One night I had palpitations and couldn't fall asleep. I asked myself, what could be causing it? I concluded that I was keeping up too quick a pace at the office—this was in 1945 when I was building Naylor Gardens for Waverly Taylor. The next day I walked when I was at the job.On the second night the palpitations came back. I decided that I must be drinking too much coffee. So the next day I slowed down and I did not drink coffee. That night, the palpitations returned. God is trying to tell me something, I said to myself. What could it be? Finally I came to the decision to stop smoking cigarettes. In those days I smoked a pack and a half per day. The next day I threw the cigarettes away.I never had the palpitations again.I felt those symptoms were messages from God to take better care of my health.... About the Passover:It is always a joy to me to observe Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah and Hanukkah. I love having the entire family gather at Adas Israel Congregation for services, and then going to Arlene's or Bob's home afterwards for a meal together. When we maintain our Jewish tradition, giving praise to God, it strengthens us as a family, our beliefs in God, and our Jewish continuity.My hope for each generation to come is that they will carry on our traditions and our family involvement in the Jewish faith...Recalling an early childhood event in Russia:I want, at this time, to recall an event in my childhood because it contains a lesson. Before we left Russia in August ofign, I witnessed a horrible incident that is as clear in my mind now as it was the day it happened. A Cossack was running after a Jewish man. He chased the man to his bake shop where he hid in an oven. The Cossack found him and dragged the man, his wife, and children, to the street. The Cossack killed the entire family.My point in bringing this to your attention is that this was not the beginning of the terrible times for Jews in Russia, but it was the first anti-Semitic event that I ever saw or remembered. Throughout my life and yours, the Jewish people have been persecuted and prevented from worshipping freely in their synagogues. All of the members of our familywho did not leave for Israel, South Africa or some other safe country, were either killed in the pogroms of World War I, or they were tortured and gased by the Germans during the Holocaust in World War II.Finally, his beliefs regarding education which fueled his philantropy for the Charles E. Smith Day School and George Washington University:It is only through education, education, and more education that we can prevent these horrible things from happening again to our people. All of us must continue on with our involvement in the community and with Israel, and continue to give generously to Jewish education.THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT LEGACY THAT I LEAVE YOU.Following Mr. Smith's biography are two sections where he recounts several aspects of the Smith/Schmidoff genealogy. Next, Mr. Smith repoduced a letter from his cousin Morris Sorkin who fondly replied to him after reading Mr. Smith's previous book "Building My Life." The final section of this warm family recollection/biography is a final admonition to Mr. Smith's children, Bob and Arlene.

A Year with Your Children in the Bible: A Family Devotional Resource Jim Cromarty Christian Parenting, Cromarty, Jim
17 Cromarty, Jim A Year with Your Children in the Bible: A Family Devotional Resource Jim Cromarty Christian Parenting
0852345186 / 9780852345184 Evangelical Press 2004-09-01 Hardcover Used: Very Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
This hardcover book was published in 2004 by the Evangelical Press with 738 pages. The text is unmarked. The binding is tight. There is normal shelf and edge wear. The cover is moderately rubbed with some surface scratching. Several generations ago most families attended worship services on a regular basis and the Lord s Day was respected.Today how many families are there who gather together for family worship? How many heads of Christian homes call the family together for a time of worship and edification — singing of Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, the reading of the Scriptures, prayer and the learning of the catechism?It seems that, today, most parents are more concerned that their children excel in school examinations than seeing fine results in the things of God. Getting a well-paid job has become more important than getting into heaven.Parents are responsible for the spiritual well-being of their children and God will hold them accountable for this most important aspect of their children s lives.The motivation of this book, therefore, is that it may prove useful to those families where family worship is regularly held. But if you have never gathered your family together for the worship of God, then this will be a very helpful resource to enable you to start now. Great blessings are poured out on those faithful families where there is a regular time set aside for family devotions.Each day s reading covers two full pages and takes the reader through key Bible passages in both the Old and New Testament. Additional help is given through questions, a daily prayer and a final thought.Jim Cromarty is a retired minister of the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia. He also taught for twenty-seven years in a number of primary schools in Australia, eventually becoming principal of a large primary school. He is the author of the Books for Family Reading series, The pigtail and chopsticks man (the story of Hudson Taylor) and Food for Cannibals (the story of John Patton). All these books are suitable for children and are published by Evangelical Press.

1954 History of Preaching Charles Dargan 2vol in1 Homiletics Southern Baptist Writer & Professor, Dargan, Edwin Charles
18 Dargan, Edwin Charles 1954 History of Preaching Charles Dargan 2vol in1 Homiletics Southern Baptist Writer & Professor
Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House 1954-01-01 Hardcover Used: Good Hardcover Standard Hardcover 
Two volumes rebound as one in blue buckram. This hardcover book was published in 1954 by Baker Books with 1165 pages. Ex-library copy with a spine label, several library stamps (including all three page edges) and the remnants of a card pocket. The text is unmarked. The binding is sound. No dust jacket. The pages are toned around the edges. Introduction to the 1954 Edition:In its republication of Dargan's History of Preaching, the Baker Book House is performing a much needed service in making available to ministers, theological students, and libraries the most comprehensive work in that field. Since its first publication early in this century no comparable history of preaching has been produced. There have been numerous biographies, books dealing with particular periods and aspects of preaching, but none so ambitious and encyclopaedic as Dargan's. Its reappearance will, therefore, supply the want of teachers who have been handicapped in giving courses in the history of preaching because no comprehensive basic text was available for library and personal use.Originally this work was in two volumes, the first dealing with the period from the Apostolic Fathers to the Reformation; the second covering the story of the seven-teenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries (exclusive of American preaching which Dr. Dargan planned to include in a third volume). It is a great gain that now the two are combined in one volume.Several features of Dr. Dargan's method are of particular value. The first is the illuminating presentation in every instance of the political, social, literary, and general cultural conditions of a period in their relation to preaching. The interplay between these factors and preaching is significantly displayed. Another feature is a careful critical analysis of the qualities of preaching that affected its creativity in both the periods of decline and those of spiritual advance in the church. Of great value also are the biographical sketches of many of the greater preachers in Christian history. It is remarkable how the author in the brief space given to the individual character was able to give a clear portrait and turn the spot-light on the central qualities of his personality and preaching. If to achieve greatness one must have a vision of greatness and habitually gaze upon the best achievement in any field, this galaxy of the great in the field of preaching affords for the aspiring preacher of our day an inspiring vision.On behalf of the ministry at large, I would congratulate the publishers for their service in reissuing this monumental work.J. B. Weatherspoon

The peasants grumbled and seethed with discontent over burdensome taxes and harsh restrictions imposed by feudal lords. There was dis¬satisfaction with the Church as well. Corruption had eaten its way to the very heart of Christianity.Into this maelstrom of discontent came William Tyndale, an Englishman driven from his homeland because he fought against the dishonest and illiterate among the clergy of his country, and campaigned for a new form of religious freedom. Hunted across Germany and the Low Countries, he struggled against the unbending opposition of a hostile Church to carry out his one mission — translation of the Bible into English. His goal was to put the word of God into every home.The opposition was fanatical, but Tyndale and the little band of men that stood with him were deter-mined, and their work went on.With success in his grasp, Tyndale was betrayed by a friend and hurled into prison. Berated as a heretic, tried on false charges, cruelly punished for his deed, he died not knowing that within a year, others would carry on the work he started, soon making the Bible understood to even the most lowly plowboy.This is the chronicle of the 14-year struggle of a man who would not be silenced. Set against the backdrop of history, the tale moves with breath-tak¬ing speed to its climax of treachery.
