Restoring Christ's church : John a Lasco and the forma ac ratio by Michael Stephen Springer( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the struggle for Protestant consensus and unity through the work of John a Lasco (1499-1560). The Polish reformer was among the most dynamic church organizers of the sixteenth century, dedicated to healing the divisions among evangelicals and searching for the key to Protestant unity in the example of the Apostolic Church. It was to this end that he published the Forma ac ratio in 1555, a work that recorded the rites and practices of the London Strangers' Church (of which he had been the first superintendent) and to provide a model for uniting the disparate Protestant communities on the Continent." "This is the first book to provide a comprehensive analysis of the Forma ac ratio, and the reformers' reasons for writing it. This study also puts Lasco's distinct model for Protestant churches into the wider European context and assesses his impact on the struggle for unity through an examination of his correspondence, the reaction to his writings, and his influence on Protestant congregations across Europe."--Jacket
Head or heart? : The Richardson-Fanning Controversy and its effect on spirituality in the Stone-Campbell movement by Keven Kent Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Robert Richardson, a leader in the early Stone-Campbell Movement, an indigenous American church, challenged the theology of the sect, which consubstantiated Spirit and scripture. The group highly regarded enlightened philosophy whereas emotionalism, like which occurred at camp meetings during the Second Great Awakening, was eschewed. The result was a de-emphasis on Christian spirituality. Dr. Richardson challenged another coreligionist, Tolbert Fanning, who held an extreme application of sensate materialism. In so doing, this study will show Richardson awoke spiritual slumbers and catalyzed devotional life in the movement resulting in the advent of pious literature. Research consisted primarily of nineteenth century primary narrative sources especially denominational journals, personal correspondence, eyewitness accounts, as well as quantitative research of available print catalogues. Following the controversy and in the four decades prior to 1900, the fifth largest denomination in the United States produced few resources to aid in the understanding of the Holy Spirit or materials to enhance the spiritual lives of its members. Herculean forces resisted Richardson's efforts. From an entrenched Lockean philosophy, an inherent aversion to emotionalism and revivalism, a devastating debate with a southern leader who, along with the southern states, cut off all communication during the Civil War to the chaos of competition by bishop-editors. Nonetheless, Richardson's influence instigated devotional writings when previously there were none: a major treatise on the Holy Spirit and seven other books were penned that focused on Christian lifestyle and piety, and additionally, three other sermonic publications included [homiletical] entries of a pietistic nature. A larger, longitudinal study of the influence of Lockean epistemology on the movement many give insight into the continued resistance to spirituality and the eventual, rapid growth of devotional publications."--Abstract

Revolution, imperialism, and the Hawaiian monarchy : reconsidering American-Hawaiian affairs during the late nineteenth century by Forrest W. L Paige( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

After 100 years, the Hawaiian kingdom’s collapse continues to garner not only academic debate, but also long-standing hostilities rooted in deep-seated sentiments of Pacific Nativism and American Nationalism. From this enduring conflict, two historical interpretations have developed that reflect the polarized views of nineteenth century Western capitalists and the modern Native Hawaiians. Although antagonistic in nature, their narratives reject accepted historical methods in favor of promoting their specific social, religious, and political principles. Using government documents, newspaper and journal articles, as well as the manuscripts of key historical agents, the thesis reexamines the events corresponding to the cessation of Hawaii’s monarchy and its sovereignty five years later. Contrary to the competing primary historical narratives, it examines the often-ignored complex social, political, and economic factors that created a tempestuous, but economically profitable, relationship between the kingdom’s privileged native class and the elite foreign subjects. The evidence indicates the 1893 coup d'état resulted from multiple domestic conflicts, independent of American foreign policies, but garnered international attention when a rogue US diplomat aided the Caucasian insurgents. Furthermore, the material suggests American imperialists in 1898, not a policy of imperialism, used their country’s increased nationalism during the Spanish-American War to appropriate the Hawaiian Islands as a military asset. The true victim, as with most global historical narratives, remained the islands’ neglected commoners caught in the drive to elevate financial standings
