Sacramental Discourses By John Owen
eBook (ePub): $2.99
John Owen believed that many Christians during his time failed to benefit from the sacrament of communion because they misunderstood the nature of the special union with Christ. Often, Christians... More > have a tendency to become preoccupied with novelties while practicing the sacrament. It was Owen's aim to help reorient Christians towards the Bible as the standard of truth. Through communion, we as Christians are called to first represent Christ to ourselves and then to profess his greatness to others. Owen offers advice for Christians on how to prepare for communion highlighting the importance of confession and self-examination. He also considers the practical concerns of both the individual and the church institution with regards to the act of communion itself. The series of discourses is intended to be used by Christians of all denominations in meditation as they approach the Lord's Table. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less

Paperback: $12.29
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a book about the High Church movement in the German Lutheran Churches, particularly about its two major branches, the Church Union and the movement of Berneuchen and related groups. After a... More > short introduction into the situation of German Lutheranism after World War I and a brief outline of the history of these two related groups, the study focuses on the Eucharistic liturgies both movements produced. After a detailed analysis of both Eucharistic rites, not only their mutual relation but their influence on the official liturgies of the Lutheran and United Churches are discussed. This book is a complete novelty in English since both movements are frequently regarded as fringe groups and then are virtually unknown in the English speaking world. Short biographies of their founders Hansen, Heiler and Ritter are also added as well as literature (though the latter is mainly in German). This is a brief, but completely study for everybody interested in 20th century liturgical movments.< Less

Seven Keys to Balpate By George M. Cohan

Prints in 3-5 business days
In the words of the November 1913 reviewer in Theater Magazine, “This play is a novelty in many ways.” And Channing Pollock comments in The Green Book in December 1913, “It is a... More > play within a play within a play, with the characters in each separate play laughing at those in all the other plays. … The amazingly ingenious scheme of the piece suggests those wooden eggs, contained by one inside another, that used to be imported from China. Seven Keys to Baldpate is a play and a burlesque of that play synchronized. Its authors deride the trashy melodrama, in melodrama, and then justify melodrama by showing real life to be full of melodrama. Finally, they justify themselves and defy criticism in a brilliant bit of effrontery.” Based on the novel of Earl Derr Biggers by the same title, Seven Keys to Baldpate opened on September 22, 1913 at The Astor Theater, in NYC, and has been revived and filmed many times ever since.< Less
