On this earth, one may dare familiar and unfamiliar paths. But beyond the human plane of reckoning, a few may dare to thread, such a path is that which this book aims to convey its reader to. On earth you can only imagine what may transpire after death, you may guess and assume; the more you do, the more complex the hereafter becomes. This complexity has been brought close to you, from the encounter of a wayfarer, a wanderer that wandered on the path of life to a supposedly lost eternity, but mercy intervened. He goes to eternity, and returned with some heart rendering narrations, from some highly bizarre encounter, with fiends and friends. He journeyed from several realms, planets and encountered creatures that were beyond description and incomprehensible to the human makeup. He moved farther and encountered the creator of the wilderness (earth), who gave orders that he should embark on this tour that eventually landed him in hell. You would be gripped with fear, when you read of the encounter of those in hell (the damned souls); you would meet the devil and his emissaries - and get some tough secrets forced out of them by the Creator of the Universe. Mercy took this young man to hades, the throne of mercy and then returned him back to us - earth. When he returned back to earth with his findings, what happened? How was he taken? What were the acceptance and rejections he encountered? You are just pages away, from a life changing encounter, one that would question all you have known of life and eternity. And you must answer the query thereafter; when the roll is called up yonder, would you be there?
William Penns promise of religious freedom brought many diverse religious groups to Pennsylvania in the 17th and 18th centuries. Each brought pre-existing hymns and hymn tunes, but many also wrote original texts and music. This book examines the hymns of the 1694 Wissahickon settlement under Johannes Kelpius, the 18th century Ephrata Cloister of Conrad Beissel, and the hymn life of the Bethlehem Moravian Unitas Fratrum. Among the later writers of hymn text or music selected for this study are William Kirkpatrick, John Wyeth, William Gustavus Fischer, Francis Hopkinson, Eleanor C. Donnelly, and many more. Sample texts are included for many hymns, and six musical scores are reproduced. Of special interest are the earliest texts and music from the Wissahickon and Ephrata communities. Pennsylvanias hymn background is unique and compelling. The stories of the writers and their hymns should appeal to anyone interested in hymns, theology, music, or American history. Dr. Lucy E. Carroll is currently organist and choir director at the Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia, and Adjunct Associate Professor at Westminster Choir College in Princeton NJ. She was appointed Scholar in Residence by the PHMC for the Ephrata Cloister site, and she has served as a PHC Commonwealth Speaker. She is Research Chair for the Kelpius Society of Philadelphia. Her articles on music have appeared in many journals and periodicals, and her Churchmouse Squeaks cartoons appear monthly in the Adoremus Bulletin. The recipient of numerous awards and honors, Dr. Carroll has served as organist, conductor, theatre director, educator, music coordinator, clinician and guest speaker. She chaired the music segment of the 1992 International Conference on Arts and Communication at St. Johns College, Cambridge, England and was awarded the International Order of Merit.
CALLED UP YONDER is a personal exploration of the mysteries of the final journey. Written by Certified Healthcare Musician Katharine Winter, this book brings a much-needed broader perspective into the discussion of the end-of-life experience.
“ . . . Surely, I come quickly.” - Revelation 22:20 When Christ was with His disciples prior to the beginning of the Church at Pentecost, He taught them the great doctrines that they should know and pass on after His death and resurrection. Among those important teachings were the fact that every man and woman are sinners; all need the Savior to be their own Redeemer; and that He, Jesus Christ will come to earth a second time to set up and rule over His earthly Kingdom. For three centuries these were the main teachings of the Church. Then, around 300 A.D., some men opposed many of Christ’s teachings, especially concerning His promise about the coming Kingdom on the earth and caused this great doctrine to be removed from the Church. The coming Millennial Kingdom is the leading subject of the preaching of John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, and the Apostles. It’s teaching embraces a larger portion of Scripture revelation than all other subjects combined! If you’re a Christian, you need to be looking for Christ’s call to you heavenward. He’s “even at the door!” Hopefully, this book will help to get you ready to meet Christ when He calls – and it will be sooner than you think!
The first volume in a trilogy of prayer manuals compiled by Publishers Weekly religion editor Phyllis Tickle as a contemporary Book of Hours to guide Christians gently yet authoritatively through the daily offices. The Divine Hours is the first major literary and liturgical reworking of the sixth-century Benedictine Rule of fixed-hour prayer. This beautifully conceived and thoroughly modern three-volume guide will appeal to the theological novice as well as to the ecclesiastical sophisticate. Making primary use of the Book of Common Prayer and the writings of the Church Fathers, The Divine Hours is also a companion to the New Jerusalem Bible, from which it draws its Scripture readings. The trilogy blends prayer and praise in a way that, while extraordinarily fresh, respects and builds upon the ancient wisdom of Christianity. The first book in the set, Prayers for Summertime, filled with prayers, psalms, and readings, is one readers will turn to again and again. Compact in size, it is perfect for those seeking greater spiritual depth. As a contemporary Book of Hours, The Divine Hours: Prayers for Summertime heralds a renewal of the tradition of disciplined daily prayer, and will whet the hunger of a large and eager audience for the follow-up autumn/winter and spring volumes.
