This volume presents the Lives of three women of the thirteenth century, all writtenby contemporaries. In the late Middle Ages, almost every town in Northern Europe had its own anchoress, who would keep in touch with the citizens through a window looking onto the churchyard or through a door and window looking into the church (as shown in the cover illustration). Such women, along with the beguines, Cistercian nuns and monks, reform-minded clergy, and devout laywomen, formed what Barbara Newman has termed 'close-knit networks of spiritual friendship that easily crossed the boundaries of gender, religious status, and even language'. This volume presents the lives of two recluses, Yvette of Huy, whose life was recorded by her spiritual friend, the Premonstratensian Hugh of Floreffe, and Margaret the Lame of Magdeburg, whose lessons were recorded by her confessor, the Dominican John of Magdeburg (introduced and translated by Jo Ann McNamara, and Gertrud Jaron Lewis and Tilman Lewis respectively). The anchoress Eve of Saint-Martin was an author herself. Her memoir in French on her friend Juliana's and her own labour for the new Feast of Corpus Christi forms the basis of the Latin Life of Juliana of Cornillon (introduced and translated by Barbara Newman).
This beginner's guide to the Bible is based on the author's experience teaching the Bible for over 20 years. The persons and incidents in the Old Testament that you must know to understand God's revelation of himself and his will to the people of Israel (and to us) are highlighted. Readers will discover promises God made to his people (despite their faithlessness), fulfilling most of them in Christ Himself. Themes and events in the New Testament are seen in an important light - as reinforcements and enlargements of themes from the Old Testament. Written by an Episcopalian priest but the message is aimed at a broad audience by concentrating on the basics of the Christian faith. ENDORSEMENTS: Father Furrer has provided us with a true handbook - what the ancients called an Enchiridion - of the Christian faith. In the tradition of the apoloA--gists he has anticipated the questions, doubts and confusions which can and do arise in human minds on so many points of doctrine. This is a fine book which will serve well in both parish and private study. ~ Edward F. Duffy Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Fairfield, CT Adjunct Professor of NT Greek at Hartford Seminary Canon Furrer has combined his pastoral and academic knowledge into a simple and practical book for the Christian and non-Christian reader in search of knowing what the Bible is all about and its relevance to the twenty-first century. I recommend it for all who desire to understand the Bible in historiA--cal, social and ethical contexts. ~ The Rt. Rev. Josiah Idowu-Fearon, PhD Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Kaduna, Nigeria In a clear and straightforward style, Furrer lays out the major biblical themes, inserting commentary and scripture quotations so as never to stray far from the actual text. Each chapter ends with useful questions for reflection. This is a book you can give to someone looking for guidance with confidence that they will find the guidance they need. ~ Rev. Christopher Webber Author of A Year with American Saints (and other books) ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The Rev. Canon Tom Furrer has served in parish ministry in the Epis-copal Diocese of Connecticut since 1986. He is currently the Rector of Trinity Church in Tariffville.
