"[By] Thomas H. Troeger".
Includes bibliographical references (p. 191-192) and indexes.
"This book gathers together my complete hymn texts, which I have interspersed with related prayers and poems. The prayers deepen and extend the meaning of what the congregation sings. The poems encourage reflection upon the hymns and often reveal a line or an idea that inspired a hymn. I have grouped the hymns by images and patterns of association. This allows the reader to trace the web of metaphor and meaning that pervades the collection". -- Preface.
Contains text of 134 hymns, prayers poems.

Notes
"The 53rd summer meeting of the Ecclesiastical History Society met at the University of Sheffield from July 22 to 24, 2014, under the presidency of Dr. Frances Andrews of St. Andrew's University, Scotland. .... Dr. Frances Andrews selected 'doubt' as the theme for her year as President of the Ecclesiastical Society. Doubt is a difficult subject for Christians in general and Christian historians in particular" (p. [100]). "There were four main papers at plenary sessions and thirty-five communications by members, a bountiful harvest indeed. The first plenary session was Dr. Andrews' presidential address, 'Belief, Doubt and Sanctity'. She explained that the Middle Ages was not necessarily an age of faith and that some medieval people either doubted or failed to believe. Much of her paper focused on the figure of St. John the Baptist, images of him in northern Italy, and the passage in the gospel according to Luke 7:18-35, which presents John as a doubter. Hence 'doubting John' parallels 'doubting Thomas'" (p. 101). "The fourth and final plenary paper was by Professor Kirstie Blair (University of Sterling), 'Unforming Faith: Poetry, Doubt and the Church of England in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries'. In this very fine paper, a literary scholar entered the realm of ecclesiastical history and charmed its inhabitants with her discussion of such poets as John Keble, Gerald Manley Hopkins, William Wordsworth ('Ecclesiastical Sketches and Ecclesiastical Sonnets'), Isaac Williams ('The Altar'), Geoffrey Hill, and Carol Anne Duffy. Her paper led to lively and happy discussion that ended with a question-and-answer period about the service of Evensong and the poets Robert Louis Stevenson, T.S. Eliot, and R.S. Thomas" (p. 101-102), "A third good [communications] paper was by Dr. Stuart Mews, 'New Testament "Miracles": Clergy with Doubts and Bishops with Discipline 1911-14'. He examined the ways in which Anglican scholars and leaders responded to doubts about New Testament miracles in the years just before the First World War. They faced such questions as, 'Do miracles violate the laws of nature ?' and 'Can we accept miracles in an age of reason ?' ... This historian [Stephen Sharman] also presented a paper at the conference, 'The Credible Witness: Bede's response to Doubt', in which he examined Bede's use of witnesses with religious qualifications to authenticate his accounts of miracles" (p. 101-102).

Notes
"[By] Monica Furlong".
"This book of poems, with the selection of prayers, may act as a rich seam penetrating into the mine of Monica's experiences and beliefs. People wishing to explore further must read the bibliography at the end of the book. Nevertheless, here are the themes of her life: the desolation and joys of childhood; belief in God; the difficulty of developing self-confidence as a woman in Church and society; the bringing together of sexuality and spirituality; a way of faith that lives in love with the ordinary, having known both ecstasy and limitation. Monica's originality lies for me in her close attention to the opportunities to experience bliss, contentment and unity with God while leading an ordinary life. If these poems and their introduction tempt the reader to explore further those paths of bliss, contentment and unity with God, then this volume will be a fitting memorial to a friend who was my guide through the appallingly painful maze of being a woman in the Church of England in the second half of the twentieth century". -- Intro., pp. viii-ix.
Contents divided into two main sections: Poems -- Prayers. Sections further sub-divided by subject/theme.
Contents: Introduction / Clare Herbert -- POEMS -- Jubilee -- Reassessments -- Revelations -- Unicorn -- Valley of dry bones -- God's a good man -- PRAYERS -- Prayers for various occasions -- A eucharistic prayer -- Seasonal prayers -- An Easter Eucharist -- Books by Monica Furlong -- Index of first lines.
Contents of Prayers for various occasions section: A prayer when we need love -- Grace -- A prayer when we are discouraged -- A prayer of praise -- A prayer in time of suffering -- A prayer of offering -- The prayer of Jesus (Lord's Prayer) -- A prayer for courage.
