"This 'African Prayer Book' seeks to provide examples of African Christian and non-Christian spirituality with prayers, poems, litanies, songs, acts of adoration, of thanksgiving and supplication and confession, arrow prayers, blessings and even maledictions, as well as acts of dedication and commitment, together with appropriate quotations from the Bible that belong to us all. The composers of the African pieces are in the main Africans, black and white. One or two pieces are by Europeans who have had a deep connection with Africa. We have included compositions from the African diaspora in the United States of America and the West Indies". -- Intro., p. xv.

"The creation of this Prayer Book has been a joyful and inspiring task during a period of over twenty years of liturgical experiment and renewal. .... This book stands alongside the South African Book of Common Prayer (1954), which in its turn is grounded upon the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, itself the heir to the three Prayer Books of 1549, 1552, and 1559. .... Liturgy is the public worship of the Church of God, a living tradition, a treasure which is both old and new. It is hoped that the present book will be used and understood, and come to be loved, as a further contribution to this unfolding tradition. In its essential features it is true to the long history of our liturgical heritage. In its particular traits it aims to be true to contemporary language and insights. The Church of the Province of Southern Africa uses many different languages, and it is our policy to make the liturgy available in as many of them as possible. The work of the Liturgical Committee in English has therefore been accompanied by the equally exacting labour of the Translation Committees. English texts have needed to be capable of translation, and translators have had to decide between dynamic and literal translation. Liturgy in Africa should be African. We hope that this Prayer Book will serve as a stimulus to the continuing development of indigenous liturgy; it contains in Form C of the prayers of intercession in the Eucharist one piece of vernacular liturgy which was translated into English". -- General Preface.

"It is often said that a new era in Anglican thought began with the publication of 'Lex Mundi' in 1889, and it is no less certain that this era ended when the Second World War began in 1939. It has been my aim in this series of Hale Lectures to trace the development of Anglican theology in this era, now that twenty years have passed since its conclusion and we are able to see it in perspective". -- Preface, p. vii.

"The original conception of this book goes back some years. The writer, when in China, taught theological students Church History and other subjects related to Anglicanism, and was impressed by the lack of any book which sets out to do for the Anglican Communion the sort of thing done by the later Bishop of Chichester's 'A Brief Sketch of the Church of England'. .... The first draft of this book resulted, and, had circumstances permitted, it would have been translated into Chinese and published there. Since then much of the material has been used for lectures at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury; parts have been expanded, other parts cuts down, all has been written as for English readers, and the result is a new book". -- Preface.

"In the third volume in the 'Communication for Churchmen' series, three experts ... unfold the exciting possibilities available to churchmen through the understanding and use of modern audiovisual equipment and theory. Drawings, photographs, and charts make the easy-to-follow discussions crystal clear. Ministers, teachers, building committees -- all church leaders -- must take into account the audiovisual sophistication of the congregation in an age of instant communication. To be effective, communication directed toward today's man-in-the-pew must be based on a sound understanding of theory and creative innovation in the use of filmstrips, amplification systems, and other tools of communication. Even in the planning stages of a church sanctuary or educational facilities, the use of such tools must be a foremost consideration". -- front dust jacket blurb.

"This book is a study of authority in the Christian Church: its principles and theological basis; its structures and organization; and its dynamics, the way it is exercised in practice. The method that I follow is one that comprises historical narrative, theological interpretation and contemporary commentary. But my underlying concern is for beneficial and salutary forms of authority that will promote the unity of the Church in the twenty-first century. The focus is mainly on the past one thousand years, Christianity's second millennium, when the different approaches to authority, broadly monarchical or broadly conciliar, that have come to inform the modern churches, took shape". -- Intro., p. [xi].
