Excerpt from The Eldership of the Presbyterian Church: A Sermon, Preached Before the Charleston Union Presbytery, April 4th, 1836 The following discourse was delivered before the Charleston Union Presbytery at one of its regular meetings. The hope that it may do good, by calling the attention of our Churches to the nature, duties, and character of the Eldership - by exciting inquiry into this subject - by calling attention to its present woful condition - by imparting a stronger conviction of its importance, dignity and necessity - and by leading to the adoption of such measures, as will restore it to its designed influence in the Church of Christ - this he humbly trusts is the author's motive for sending it forth to the Christian public.
Excerpt from An Enquiry Into the Possibility of Obtaining Means for Church Extension: Without Parliamentary Grants Public attention has lately been so much called to the subject of Church Extension, and there is so general a conviction of the necessity of adopting some measures to relieve the spiritual destitution of this country, and to obviate the dangers which are connected with it, that the friends of the Church have little more to do, than to suggest and examine specific designs for rendering the Church co-extensive with the wants of our population.

Excerpt from Religion, the Weal of the Church and the Need of the Times The motives of a writer are of far less consequence to his readers, than the staple of his thoughts, and the style of his performance; they may receive his impressions, but cannot share his obligations. But though motives pass unchallenged, every work of man must bear witness to some design.

Excerpt from Liturgy and Hymns for Church Sunday Schools The design of the Compilers has been to make the Divine institution of the Day of Rest, as recognised in the Decalogue, the prominent truth presented to the minds of the young at the commencement of every Lord's Day; and then to lead them on, in the Sunday Morning Hymn which follows, to mark the peculiar characteristics of the Christian Sabbath; embodying the topics of the second verse of the hymn in the versicles succeeding.

Excerpt from Which Is the True Church?: Or, a Few Plain Reasons for Joining the Roman Catholic Communion The question which forms the title of this little work is one that must admit of very easy solution, seeing that the object, for which our Lord established His Church on earth, rendered it necessary that the Marks - which were to distinguish her in all ages as the Divinely commissioned Teacher Of The Nations - should be plain and simple, and easily recognisable by those for whom His Religion itself was specially adapted and designed the poor and ignorant, who constitute the great bulk of mankind.
Excerpt from Scriptural Examinations on the Church Catechism: Designed as a Plain Manual of Divinity for Sunday-Schools, Catechetical, and Bible Classes, and General Use To those of more advanced age, whether individual readers or classes, the whole of these references should be diligently studied and compared with the language of the Catechism. In order to furnish further aid to such study, and to invite to it all who desire to be intelligently instructed in the great truths of Christianity, the American editor has added a series of notes for the further elucidation of points especially important, or requiring explanation.
Excerpt from Young Workers in the Church: Or, the Training and Organization of Young People for Christian Activity Sometime ago the Ministerial Union of Philadelphia, an organization composed of the ministers of the evangelical denominations of the city, requested the writer to prepare a paper on young peoples work in the Church. The special question submitted was, "How to organize the young people of the Church for the most efficient Church work?" The paper was prepared, and, at the designated time, read before this ministerial association, and, subsequently, a part of it was read before another body, which represented a large number of Churches.
Excerpt from The Catholic Christian Instructed in the Sacraments, Sacrifice, Ceremonies, and Observances of the Church The design of the following sheets being to explain the Doctrine and Ceremonies of the Catholic Church, and to vindicate the same from the misrepresentations of our adversaries, the Reader, whether Catholic or Protestant, may reasonably expect that I should not send them abroad into the world without taking some notice of a late performance of Dr.
Excerpt from English Church Teaching on Faith Life and Order This manual is designed to aid students of our English Church system. It may also be found useful to clergymen and others who have to conduct classes on the History and Doctrines of our Church, and who desire to follow the lines laid down by our Reformers. The need of some such manual has been widely felt, but it has not been easy to do exactly what was sought.

The ancient churches and cathedrals of England's towns and countryside are among the glories of our national heritage. Yet how were our ancestors able to construct these often substantial edifices without the benefit of modern techniques? How did the medieval masons plan, design and oversee their construction? What methods of construction were used by the medieval carpenters to realise the magnificent roofs and ceilings we see today? In this unique guide, Geoffrey R.

Excerpt from The Theology of the Early Christian Church, Vol. 2: Exhibited in Quotations From the Writers of the First Three Centuries, With Reflections The following course of Lectures being designed to afford the means of judging, by copious extracts, of the theology of the first ages of the church, the reflections which are interspersed may be regarded as mere helps to the formation of just conclusions, and may be adopted or rejected according to the degree of evidence which they present.
Excerpt from The Growth of the Church in Its Organization and Institutions: Being the Croall Lectures for 1886 The following Lectures were delivered in St. Andrew's Church, Edinburgh, in the months of January and February of the present year.

Excerpt from Church History, Vol. 3 The Preface to the first Volume of this History, which, after some years of hope and preparation, is now brought to a conclusion, contained a statement of the design which the Author conceived in undertaking it, and which he has now attempted to execute.

The Author has endeavoured to Show that this Office is Of divine institution, that it was designed to be of permanent continuance in the church, and that those congregations, who have per mitted it to pass into dissuetude, are chargeable with criminal neglect.
Excerpt from Standard Works Adapted to the Use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States: Gibson's Three Pastoral Letters, Horne's Letters on Infidelity, and to Adam Smith A collection of treatises expressly designed, and with consummate skill adapted, for popular instruction, needs little to be said by way of introduction. As much as is known to the editor of the history of Bishop Gibson's Pastoral Letters is stated in the Memoir of the writer's life - with the exception of the fact that the first two were answered by Tindal, in 1730, and defended in an anonymous publication of the same year.

Excerpt from General History of the Christian Religion and Church, Vol. 5 Another theatre was opened, at this period, for the world-transforming activity of the Gospel; and we see it operating in a new and peculiar manner. In the earlier chapters of this work, we observed how Christianity united itself with the systems of culture in the old world, as exhibited under the form of Greek and Roman nationality; and how, when the harmonious design, founded on the principles of nature and humanity, had reached its highest point, and then, by suffering itself to be perverted, was destroyed, Christianity was the means of introducing a new and divine element of life; and of thereby reanimating the race lying under spiritual death, and of elevating it to a far higher degree of spiritual development than it had hitherto reached: whence a new creation was seen arising out of the new spirit, but retaining the old form.
Excerpt from A Guide to the Study of Church History As the title indicates, this volume is intended to be a guide to students.

Excerpt from The Church and the Faith It is believed that a very definite aim, as the purpose of the present publication, will manifest itself to every attentive reader who has the patience to peruse it to the end. It may not be superfluous, however, to state that the author was conscious of a twofold design, while laboring at his manuscript. Having often wished, in vain, for some single book which should present in a small compass, for the benefit of such as he has been preparing for confirmation, the exact nature of some of the main reasons which, in his judgment, should actuate every one who seeks to become a member of the church at whose altars he unworthily ministers, he intends to employ the present volume for the instruction of his own candidates; and offers it to the public in the hope that it may prove useful to others in a similar way.
Excerpt from Annals of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, From the Final Secession in 1739, to the Origin of the Relief in 1752: With an Appendix of Biographical Sketches, Illustrative Documents, and Notes The present volume is designed to be, for the period which it embraces, a Record of the transactions of the General Assembly of the Scottish Church, whether relating to Legislative Acts or Judicial Decisions; - inclusive also of whatever comes under the designation of "Miscellaneous Business," with the exception of matters of mere routine.
Excerpt from The Framework of the Church: A Treatise on Church Government The present volume treats of a subject which has been a bone of controversy for ages. It is very far from the design of the author to revive, much less to aggravate, the bitterness which the discussion has awakened; but, as the scriptural constitution of the Church has occupied much of his attention for at least half a century, he is desirous to communicate to others his matured convictions on the questions in dispute.
Excerpt from Biographical Sketches of Eminent Itinerant Ministers Distinguished, for the Most Part, as Pioneers of Methodism Within the Bounds of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South It is not the design of the present volume to encourage "hero-worship." There is a glorying in man which is denounced as idolatry, because it derogates from the glory of God.
Excerpt from The Church and Modern Society, Vol. 1: Lectures and Addresses With the view of giving at least an appearance of unity in thought and design to this collection of lectures and addresses, so dissimilar in theme and in immediate purpose, I adopt for it the general title, The Church and Modern Society. This may not be entirely inappropriate.

Excerpt from A Guide to the Church The following Discourses were originally designed for private circulation in a particular parish. Being written for that purpose, their accommodation to the existing state of that parish constituted of course the principal object in view. Should therefore some parts of the subject be more dilated, than may be thought necessary for general information; or some circumstances noticed which might have been omitted; the candid reader will, it is hoped, make allowance for what on these accounts may be an unwelcome trespass upon his time.
Excerpt from The Church and the Gentile World at the First Promulgation of the Gospel, Vol. 1: Considerations on the Catholicity of the Church Soon After Her Birth As soon as God communicated to fallen man his decree of redemption, and promised that "the seed of the woman would crush the head of the serpent," the Church was born, at least in design.

The designs of synagogues and churches are acknowledged to be very alike. But the designers' procedure was confidential, and so far standard explanations have been unsatisfactory. A synagogue should express heavenly values with earthly materials. This combination was in fact expressed in numbers, for, as Plato said, they linked heaven and earth. Scripture described both the Jewish Tabernacle and Temple with a wealth of numbers.
