A Stay Against Confusion  Essays On Faith And Fiction (Author Signed), Hansen, Ron
6 Hansen, Ron A Stay Against Confusion Essays On Faith And Fiction (Author Signed)
HarperCollins 2001 0060196661 / 9780060196660 First Edition; 1st Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by Author on Title Page. Black mark on bottom of pages may be remainder mark. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. In the tradition of Flannery O'Connor and Andre Dubus, A Stay Against Confusion explores the role that religious belief and literature play in one writer's life. All creative writing is, in the words of Robert Frost, "a stay against confusion." It tries to find a harmony and order that we only fleetingly detect beneath the chaos of everyday life, and to point out motivations and causalities in what seem to be random and often meaningless acts. Religion has also functioned in this way for Ron Hansen, and it shares with literature both a reverence for mystery and the use of metaphor to communicate another order that we will never fully perceive or comprehend. In this rich and deeply felt collection of essays, Hansen talks about his novels, his childhood and family, and about such mentors as John Gardner. He explores prayer, stigmata, twentieth-century martyrs, and the Eucharist. A profile of his grandfather, a "tough-as-nails, brook-no-guff Colorado rancher," finds a place alongside a wonderfully informative portrait of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. A brilliant reading of a story by Leo Tolstoy follows an appreciation of the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins. A surprisingly intimate book, A Stay Against Confusion brings together the literary and religious impulses that inform the life of one of our most gifted fiction writers.; 1.1 x 8.2 x 6 Inches; 288 pages; Signed by Author

A Scriptural, Ecclesiastical, and Historical View of Slavery from the Days of The Patriarch Abraham To The Nineteenth Century addressed to the Right Rev. Alonzo Potter, D.D., Hopkins, John Henry
8 Hopkins, John Henry A Scriptural, Ecclesiastical, and Historical View of Slavery from the Days of The Patriarch Abraham To The Nineteenth Century addressed to the Right Rev. Alonzo Potter, D.D.
New York , NY W. I. Pooley & Co. 1864 1st Edition Thus; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Professionally rebound in black cloth with gilt print. Contents are original and look almost new, clean and bright. This is not a recent reprint or print on demand.Reverend Hopkins conviction is captured in his statement , "...while I should rejoice in the adoption of any plan of gradual abolition which could be accepted peacefully by general consent, I cannot see that we have any right to interfere with the domestic institutions of the South, either by law or by the Gospel." "John Henry Hopkins (January 30, 1792 – January 9, 1868) was the first bishop of Episcopal Diocese of Vermont and the eighth Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. He was also an artist (both in water-color and in oils), a lawyer, an ironmonger, a musician and composer, a theologian, and an architect, who introduced Gothic architecture into the United States. In 1861, Hopkins wrote his "most controversial" pamphlet, The Bible View of Slavery, in which he criticized abolitionists and declared that no scriptural basis for ending slavery existed. The pamphlet was seen as Hopkins' attempt to justify slavery based on the Bible. He argued that slavery was not a sin per se. A major example of Hopkins coming under fire was the "bitter attack upon him during the War signed by Alonzo Potter, the then Bishop of Pennsylvania, and 163 other clergy of the Diocese of Pennsylvania." In the attack, Hopkins was called "wicked," and his views were called "unworthy of any servant of Jesus Christ." Hopkins' "come back" was an overwhelming citation of Holy Scripture, and of over one hundred historical authorities, ranging from St. Paul to Theodore Parker. Hopkins' "come back" was never answered. Hopkins' "religious awakening" happened during his first winter in the Ligonier Valley. He was alone, reading a work of Hannah More, when as Hopkins described it, "a sudden beam of divine Truth shone into his inmost heart." From that experience on, for the rest of his life, "the love of Christ Crucified" was Hopkins' "guiding and ruling principle". (Wikipedia) In spite of his convictions about slavery he was instrumental in helping the Episcopal Church in the North and South heal after the Civil War. We provide delivery tracking on US orders.

9 Hopkins, John Henry, DD, LLD The Law of Ritualism, examined in its relation to the Word of God, to the Primitive Church, to the Chruch of England, and to the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States
New York Hurd and Houghton 1866 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Good with No dust jacket as issued 
A rare first edition not a reprint. Blue cover with gilt print and design on front cover. Spine has chips and corners show wear. Contents clean. Former owner penciled name in front dated 1893. "The advance of ritualism became intensely controversial in the Episcopal Church. Some opponents of ritualism believed the changes were introducing Roman Catholic practices and beliefs into a Protestant Church. Evangelicals were often strong and vocal opponents of ritualism... This dispute eventually led to a canon passed by the 1856 General Convention requiring a bishop to visit every parish in the bishop's jurisdiction at least once every three years. The controversy over ritualism led John Henry Hopkins, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, to publish The Law of Ritualism(1866). Hopkins urged that a wide variety of ritual uses were canonically permitted in the Episcopal Church. He predicted that many of the controverted practices would eventually be accepted." ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 98 pages

15 No Author Listed Calendar of transcripts including the annual report of the Department of archives and history (Virginia)
Richmond, VA Davis Bottom, Superintendent Public Printing 1905 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Not a reprint but the original publication printed in 1905.Uncut pages.Very clean contents. Marbled end papers 1/4 leather spine and corners worn and cracked. A unique bookplate in front has the handwritten note that "This book belongs to Douglas Southall Freeman" as it came out of his personal library. Freeman was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, the son of a Confederate soldier during the American Civil War. His father was Walker Garland Freeman and his mother was Bettie Hamner. He did his undergraduate work at Richmond College where he joined the Fraternity of Phi Gamma Delta. He received his Ph.D. in history from Johns Hopkins University at the age of 22.A long-time resident of Richmond, Virginia, Freeman served as editor of The Richmond News Leader from 1915 to 1949. However, it was his work as a historian and biographer that earned greatest recognition.He won Pulitzer Prizes for two of his books, his four-volume biography of Robert E. Lee, and his seven-volume biography of George Washington (a seventh volume First in Peace was written after Freeman's death by J. A. Carroll and M. W. Ashworth, two of his historical associates). He was also the author of the three-volume Lee's Lieutenants: A Study in Command.Freeman's treatments of the American Civil War are often cited as examples of the Lost Cause movement, emphasizing the glory and nobility of the Southern generals and the futility of their fight against the power of the North. While Freeman certainly does emphasize the nobility of Lee's character, he does not say that Lee made no mistakes, nor does he say that the North only won because of superior numbers. For instance, this passage shows Lee misjudging his real opponent, and also expresses admiration for Abraham Lincoln's character:[1] rare if not unique. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
