The HOMILIES--available again: act quickly while there is stock

Good News for those who very disappointed when the stock of the hardback of THE HOMILIES was sold out by the Prayer Book Society.

The two Books of Homilies, under the title THE HOMILIES, is now available in a quality paperback from www.edgewaysbooks.com with postage free to the USA from England.

This edition has been carefully prepared by Ian Robinson, a well-known student of English Literature of the sixteenth century.

Thus for those who have been introduced to the existence of The Homilies through the references to them in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion (which are being studied again in Anglican circles in USA), here is a chance to get an excellent edition of this classic TEXT. As read often in parish churches for close on a century, it deeply affected the actual spoken English as well as the doctrinal understanding of thousands of Christians.

Today it is like a major Catechism to instruct in the Anglican Way of Reformed Catholic Truth, Worship and Devotion.

Go now--do not delay--to www.edgewaysbooks.com and buy a copy!

[If you doubt the importance of The Homilies then please get a copy of THE GODLY KINGDOM OF TUDOR ENGLAND: Great Books of the English Reformation, edited by John E Booty, 1981 and the chapter on the Homilies]
