Puritan's progress by Monica Furlong( Book )

14 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Bunyan is known principally as the author of the famous inspirational allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress. What has carried his fame, however, as much as his art, has been the attraction his work and life have held for the English evangelical tradition. Bunyan was a part of the Puritan movement, which took it for granted that a person would suffer for all things he believed were right. They gave England an ideal of the good man--honest, brave, God-fearing, hard-working and dutiful. Bunyan was a rural tinker when he experienced his "conversion." He became an outspoken traveling Nonconformist preacher who encouraged dissenters against the Stuart effort toward religious uniformity. As an important theorist and spokesman for the rebels, Bunyan was threatened with exile. He chose prison instead, rather than compromise his moral convictions. There, during his long confinement, he wrote numerous tracts and stories, including The Pilgrim's Progress. Here, biographer Monica Furlong examines the major tenets of Puritanism as they were developed and fought for by its chief practitioner and preacher.--From publisher description

Visions & longings : medieval women mystics by Monica Furlong( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The women mystics of medieval Europe represent the very first feminine voices heard in a world where women were nearly silent. Monica Furlong presents writings by and about eleven of these Christian mystics who lived and worked between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries." "They are Heloise, the abbess whose letters to her former lover Abelard are a treasure of medieval literature; Christina of Markyate, the hermit whose early life was characterized by her zealous antics aimed at avoiding marriage; Hildegard of Bingen, the Rhineland's renaissance woman - scientist, visionary, poet, and theologian; Beatrijs of Nazareth, Mechtild of Magdeburg, and Hadewijch of Brabant, scholars and poets of the Beguine movement of women's communities; Clare of Assisi, the close friend of Saint Francis and founder of the community of the Poor Clares; Angela di Foligno, the noble woman of Umria whose joyful spirituality made her a cult figure in her own lifetime; Catherine of Siena, the confidante of popes whose major writing consists of dialogue between herself and God; Margery Kempe, the eccentric mystic housewife; and Julian of Norwich, the recluse who spent the greater part of her life reflecting and elaborating upon the visions she received at age thirty - including a striking vision of God as Mother."--Jacket
Therésè of Lisieux by Monica Furlong( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2001 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897) is one of the most popular and beloved of the saints of modern times. The patron saint of Mission and one of three women Doctors of the Church, her 'little way' has influenced millions and is perhaps the most admired of all spiritual paths." "Yet few figures in the history of Christianity have been so misunderstood and misrepresented. In this study the distinguished biographer Monica Furlong strips away layers of sentimentality to reveal a surprising new Therese: a resilient figure who charted a spiritual path that was daring, original, and profound."--BOOK JACKET

C of E : the state it's in by Monica Furlong( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is distinctively Christian about the Church of England, and what does commitment to it entail?" "Monica Furlong is a practising Anglican who feels a strong affection for the Church of England, but is not uncritical of its weaknesses. She thinks there are internal problems which need resolving - power and party struggles within the Church, sexual narrow-mindedness, unadmitted gender and racial prejudice, the tendency to regard 'marketing' and 'managing' as an answer to numerical failure, and an unwillingness to be candid about the extent of the decline or examine its meaning in depth. This gives the book a critical edge which makes for absorbing reading."--Jacket
