A Commentary on Saint Paul's Epistle to the Galatians

By: Martin Luther

Excerpt: The importance of this Commentary on Galatians for the history of Protestantism is very great. It presents like no other of Luther's writings Description: the central thought of Christianity, the justification of the sinner for the sake of Christ's merits alone. We have permitted in the final revision of the manuscript many a passage to stand which seemed weak and ineffectual when compared with the trumpet tones of the Latin original. But the essence of Luther's...

The Spiritual Exercises

By: Father Elder Mullan

Excerpt: APPROBATION OF THE LATIN TEXTS; The Exercises were offered for ecclesiastical censure at Rome. The text submitted was not, however, the one which is here reproduced, but two Latin translations, one in more polished Latin -- since called the Vulgate Version -- and one a literal rendering. The opinions expressed on these versions, as also the formal approval of Paul III, are given here, as applying quite entirely to the text from which the translations were made.

The Holy Bible: Albanian Translation

By: Grand Rapids, MI: Christian Classics Ethereal Library

Excerpt: Ne fillim Perendia krijoi qiejt dhe token. Toka ishte pa trajte, e zbrazet dhe erresira mbulonte siperfaqen e humneres; dhe Fryma e Perendise fluturonte mbi siperfaqen e ujerave. Pastaj Perendia tha: U befte drita!. Dhe drita u be. Dhe Perendia pa qe drita ishte e mire; dhe Perendia e ndau driten nga erresira. Dhe Perendia e quajti driten dite dhe erresiren nate. Keshtu erdhi mbremja e pastaj erdhi mengjesi: dita e pare. Pastaj Perendia tha: Le te jete nje kupe ...

Npnf1-13 Saint Chrysostom: Homilies on Galatians, Ephesians, Phili...

By: Saint Chrysostom

Excerpt: These Homilies are often less complete in exposition than those on earlier books of the New Testament, and in literary excellence will not compare with the Homilies on the Statues, and many other discourses given at Antioch. But to the student of preaching, they are quite as instructive, if not really more so. Here at Constantinople the great preacher was burdened with administrative details, and harassed by Court intrigues, so that his sermons were often given ...

The Imitation of Christ

By: Thomas A. Kempis

Excerpt: Foreword; In Preparing this edition of The Imitation of Christ, the aim was to achieve a simple, readable text which would ring true to those who are already lovers of this incomparable book and would attract others to it. For this reason we have attempted to render the text into English as it is spoken today rather than the cloudy, archaic terminology that encumbers so many translations of Christian classics. The result, we feel, has achieved a directness and c...

History of the Christian Church, Volume I : Apostolic Christianity...

By: Philip Schaff

Excerpt: As I appear before the public with a new edition of my Church History, I feel more than ever the difficulty and responsibility of a task which is well worthy to occupy the whole time and strength of a long life, and which carries in it its own rich reward. The true historian of Christianity is yet to come. But short as I have fallen of my own ideal, I have done my best, and shall rejoice if my efforts stimulate others to better and more enduring work. History sh...

She Said

By: Misty Bernall

Excerpt: In a world where teenagers are constantly being accused of laziness, selfcenteredness, and indifference to the needs of others, it is healing to think of someone like Cassie. Cassie is unique because we are all unique, but she is not unique in her adolescent questioning: Who am I? Does God love me and care what happens to me? Does anything I do make a difference?

The Lowell Lectures on the Ascent of Man

By: Henry Drummond

Excerpt: ?THE more I think of it,? says Mr. Ruskin, ?I find this conclusion more impressed upon me -- that the greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way.? In these pages an attempt is made to tell ?in a plain way? a few of the things which Science is now seeing with regard to the Ascent of Man. Whether these seeings are there at all is another matter. But, even if visions, every thinking mind, through wha...

Npnf1-02 St Augustin's City of God and Christian Doctrine

By: Philip Schaff

Excerpt: Editor?s Preface; The ?City of God? is the masterpiece of the greatest genius among the Latin Fathers, and the best known and most read of his works, except the ?Confessions.? It embodies the results of thirteen years of intellectual labor and study (from A.D. 413-426). It is a vindication of Christianity against the attacks of the heathen in view of the sacking of the city of Rome by the barbarians, at a time when the old Graeco-Roman civilization was approachi...

Fear and Trembling

Excerpt: Not only in the world of commerce but also in the world of ideas our age has arranged a regular clearance-sale. Everything may be had at such absurdedly low prices that very soon the question will arise whether any one cares to bid. Every waiter with a speculative turn who carefully marks the significant progress of modern philosophy, every lecturer in philosophy, every tutor, student, every sticker-andquitter of philosophy--they are not content with doubting ev...

Npnf2-05 Gregory of Nyssa: Dogmatic Treatises, etc

By: Gregory Of Nyssa

Excerpt: Preface; That none of the Treatises of S. Gregory of Nyssa have hitherto been translated into English, or even (with one exception long ago) into French, may be partly due to the imperfections, both in number and quality, of the mss., and by consequence of the Editions, of the great majority of them. The state of the mss., again, may be owing to the suspicion diligently fostered by the zealous friends of the reputation of this Father, in ages when mss. could and...
