Excerpt from book: CHAPTER IV A VOYAGE TO INDIA ' Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."-Mark xvi. 15. "Can we, who;e souls are lighted With wisdom from on high, Can we to men benighted The lamp of life deny? Salvation! O Salvation! The joyful sound proclaim, Till each remotest nation lias learned Messiah's name." The voyage to India, when Mr. and Mrs. Beatty first went out, was very different from what it had been even a few years before, and from what it has become now. India was changing, and it is a country we are always looking to for rapid changes. When the Presbyterian Church sent out her first missionaries from Ireland to that far-away land, the undertaking was looked upon as a very self-denying one indeed. The long voyage of four, perhaps six or seven, months, sailing by the Cape of Good Hope-the uncertain time of landing in India, possibly at the worst season of the year-and the many discomforts, private tions, and risks which emigrants had to endure after landing-all these entailed a sacrifice that is now unknown. India was coming nearer. The overland route through Egypt by rail had been opened some years before the Beattys sailed, while the Peninsular and Oriental line of steam-ships was the only one between Southampton, Marseilles, and Alexandria, and on the eastern side between Suez and Bombay. There was no choice-either go P. and O, or take the long voyage in a sailing-ship round the Cape of Good Hope. The passage-money was a large figure, 89 each from Southampton. The journey can be accomplished now for about half that amount. The P. and O. Company knew how to cater to suit the tastes and requirements of the passengers to India of that time. The Anglo-Indian did not step down too suddenly from the luxuries of the old

Tales of Mean Streets


Tales of Mean Streets


$14.99


It was considered an intrepid thing for Walter Besant to do when, twelve or thirteen years ago, he invaded the great East End of London and drew upon its unknown wealth of varied material to people that most charming novel, "All Sorts and Conditions of Men." Until then the West End knew little of its contiguous neighbor in the East. Dickens's kaleidoscopic views of low life in the South of London were manifestly caricatures of the slum specimens of human nature which he purposely sought and often distorted to suit his bizarre humor. Mr. Besant may be fairly considered as the pioneer of those who have since descended to the great unchartered region of East London, about which, so far as our knowledge of the existing conditions of human life in that community are concerned, we remained until, as it were yesterday, almost as ignorant as of the undiscovered territories in Central Africa. Contemporaneous with Mr. Besant's "discovery" of East London began the eastward march of the Salvation Army, which has since honeycombed this quarter of the metropolis with its militant camps. Gradually the barriers were thrown down, and the East has become accessible to literature and to civilization as it never had been to the various Charity and Church missionary organizations.

The Book of Common Prayer


The Book of Common Prayer


$23.86


While many of us are familiar with such famous words as, "Dearly beloved, we are gathered together here. " or "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust," we may not know that they originated with TheBook of Common Prayer, which first appeared in 1549. Like the words of the King James Bible and Shakespeare, the language of this prayer book has saturated English culture and letters. Here Alan Jacobs tells its story. Jacobs shows how TheBook of Common Prayer-from its beginnings as a means of social and political control in the England of Henry VIII to its worldwide presence today-became a venerable work whose cadences express the heart of religious life for many. The book's chief maker, Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, created it as the authoritative manual of Christian worship throughout England. But as Jacobs recounts, the book has had a variable and dramatic career in the complicated history of English church politics, and has been the focus of celebrations, protests, and even jail terms. As time passed, new forms of the book were made to suit the many English-speaking nations: first in Scotland, then in the new United States, and eventually wherever the British Empire extended its arm. Over time, Cranmer's book was adapted for different preferences and purposes. Jacobs vividly demonstrates how one book became many-and how it has shaped the devotional lives of men and women across the globe.

Vows of Silence: The Abuse of Power in the Papacy of John Paul II


Vows of Silence: The Abuse of Power in the Papacy of John Paul II


$15.99


Going deep behind the headlines about scandals in the Catholic Church, Jason Berry and Gerald Renner's Vows of Silence follows the staggering trail of evasions and deceit that leads directly to the Vatican and taints the legacy of Pope John Paul II. Based on more than six years of investigative reporting and hundreds of interviews, this book is a riveting account of Vatican cover-ups. Both a profound criticism and a wake-up call to reform by two Catholic writers, Vows of Silence reveals an agenda of top-down control under John Paul II and a hierarchy so obsessed with secrecy as to spawn disinformation. It is not a book about sexual abuse; it is a book about abuse of power, throughout the Vatican.

Personnel: Kate Campbell (vocals, piano); Cindy Walker, Ava Aldridge (vocals, background vocals); Walt Aldridge (guitar, bouzouki, mandolin); Danny Parks (electric guitar); Spooner Oldham (piano, Wurlitzer organ); Daryl Burgess (drums). Audio Mixer: Don Srygley. Recording information: Fame Studios In Muscle Shoals, Alabma. Recorded in Muscle Shoals' Fame Studios, Kate Campbell's first recorded foray into gospel music further proves the extent of her eclectic artistry. Her father having been a Baptist minister, Campbell draws on a childhood of listening to traditional gospel hymns and generally shows the influence of growing up in the eclectic musical mixing pot of the South. A strong r & b flavor is added via the work of veteran session men Spooner Oldham, Walt Aldridge, Mark Narmore, and David Wood, whose musical backdrop is perfectly suited for Campbell's deeply soulful renditions of Baptist hymns from the 18th and 19th century. Where Campbell knows she doesn't have Aretha Franklin's vocal prowess, she uses her limitations to her benefit, letting her supporting players help her create the thematic continuity that is neither too studied nor too stale. The strongly evocative imagery of There is a Fountain and the ominous minor key melodies of The Prodigal fit perfectly beside originals like forewarning '10,000 Lures and the tribute to victims of the 1963 Birmingham church bombing in Bear it Away. A treat for fans of religious and secular music alike, Campbell's homecoming displays the class and taste that very few, save Emmylou Harris, are capable of summoning. ~ Ma

Life and Letters of General W.H.L. Wallace


Life and Letters of General W.H.L. Wallace


$1.99


Originally published in 1909, this biography by Isabel Wallace recounts the life of her adoptive father, the little-recognized William Hervy Lamme Wallace, the highest-ranking Union officer to fall at the battle of Shiloh. Born in 1821 in Ohio, Wallace and his family moved to Illinois in 1834, where he was educated at Rock Springs Seminary in Mount Morris. On his way to study law with Abraham Lincoln in Springfield in 1844, Wallace was persuaded by local attorney T. Lyle Dickey, a close friend of Lincoln, to join his practice in Ottawa instead. Wallace eventually married Dickey's daughter, Martha Ann, in 1851.When the Civil War broke out, both Wallace and Dickey immediately volunteered for service with the Eleventh Illinois, which assembled in Springfield. Wallace was elected as the unit's colonel; a successful lawyer, a friend of President Lincoln, a generation older than most privates, and an officer with Mexican War experience, he was entirely suited for such command. Wallace was appointed brigadier general for his performance at Fort Donelson, the first notable Union victory in the Civil War. Wallace's troops had saved the day, although the Eleventh Illinois had lost nearly two-thirds of its men. He then moved with his troops to Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, where Confederates launched a surprise attack on the forces of Major General Ulysses S. Grant at Shiloh Church on Sunday, April 6, 1862. Wallace, who held only temporary command of one of Grant's six divisions, fought bravely but was mortally wounded as he began to withdraw his men on the afternoon of the battle. His wife, who had arrived at Pittsburg Landing by steamer on the day of the battle, was at his side when he died three days later. Grant praised Wallace in 1868 as "the equal of the best, if not the very best, of the Volunteer Generals with me at the date of his death."Isabel Wallace traces her father's life from his upbringing in Ottawa through

For two tiny, bewildered people, it was a struggle for survival in a world of toys. ExcerptIt was Christmas Eve. Family men in their cozy bungalows hummed cheerfully as they put the finishing touches on Christmas trees. Men of affairs slapped each other affably on the back and toasted the season in the lounges of exclusive clubs. Merrymakers crowded the public streets and filled the taverns to overflowing. Children caroled gayly in church services. Mothers smiled their secret smiles as they wrapped presents. And Clyde Hilton worked like a lousy dog in Propper's toyshop. The funny part of it was, Clyde didn't care. He was as happy as the rest. Twelve hours on his feet today -facing mobs of customers gone frantic with the necessity of making last-minute purchases -that was Clyde's lot, but he was still smiling. From time to time the redheaded young man grinned and patted the left hand pocket of his suit coat. Deep down inside reposed a little plush-covered box. The box contained an engagement ring. Clyde fingered it and grinned- grinned at the girl behind the counter across the aisle. Gwen Thomas was worth grinning at. A pert, trim, dark-haired girl with milk-white skin and perfectly modeled features- she had the delicacy of a china doll. "Exquisite" is a somewhat precious word, and yet it exactly described Gwen's miniature-like beauty. Clyde waited for the moment that he would slip the ring on her dainty finger. This would be a Christmas they'd both remember. To top it off, Old Man Propper had promised Clyde a raise. He'd winked indulgently at this romance between his two clerks, and the holiday spirit had him in its grip. They'd have a little party after closing-time, and then Clyde would give Gwen the ring and Old Man Propper would say, "Bless you, my children." Just a slice out of Dickens. Meanwhile, Clyde scribbled furiously in his order book, wrestled with the

Hudibras, pt. i. canto 2. CHAPTER II. Less is known of the early years of Christopher Wren than of his brother's more eventful life. Christopher went to Oxford, to S. John's College, was admitted to Holy Orders, and, like his brother, became chaplain to Bishop Andrewes, from whom in 1620 he received the living of Fonthill Bishops in Wiltshire. It may be said in passing, that to receive preferment from Lancelot Andrewes was in itself a proof of merit, for it was his especial care, in the three dioceses which he successively governed, only to promote able and good men to ' such livings and preferments as fell within his gift, and to give Church preferment to none that asked for it' To this rule he rigidly adhered, and his disciple, Matthew Wren, followed the same plan when he became a Prelate of the Church. Christopher did not hold this living more than three years, and then received, also from Bishop Andrewes, the neighbouring living of East (or Bishop's) Knoyle, very near
