Second Edition. London: Rivingtons, Waterloo Place. High Street Oxford, Trinity Street Cambridge. 1893. Octavo, 133.6 x 20.8cm. Pamphlet in gray wrapper with title also on wrapper, front cover strengthened at edges & rehinged with archival paper, damp stain on outer margins of upper half of pages, light tanning of pages.

Last page reads: London: Printed by William Clowes and Sons, Duke Street, Stamford Street, and Charing Cross. This meeting and pamphlet came about because "It was announced early in 1872, that the Bishops of the Province of Canterbury would invite the Lower House of that Province to consider what method of dealing with the Athanasian Creed would tend to remove the difficulties which it was alleged were occasioned by its present use in the Service of the Church of England; a Committee of Clergy and Laity was therefore organized by the exertions of a few Laymen, and the following circular was issued to all the Parochial Clergy of England and Wales. 'Reverend Sir, We, the undersigned, beg leave to urge upon you very seriously the importance and necessity of obtaining the signatures of your parishioners to a petition, headed by yourself, to the Lower House of Convocation of Canterbury... in favour of maintaining the Athanasian Creed in its integrity in the Public Service of the Church." They ended up obtaining 38,000 signatures in favour of keeping the creed.

The author discusses the influence of the frontier on American civilization: "The distinctive traits that are associated with the American people today--their dislike of governmental interference in their economic affairs, their materialism, their mobility, their inventiveness, their willing acceptance of innovation, their faith in political and social democracy, their rabid nationalism, their unabashed faith in continued progress--these are characteristics that stemmed at least partly from the frontier environment in which the United States grew to maturity."--p.4.

Charles Girdlestone (1797-1881) Church of England Biblical scholar. "Girdlestone was a man of sincere piety, and an energetic and enlivening preacher. Both as a politician and as a churchman he chose in early life the via media-reflected in his sermon, Affection between Churchmen and Dissenters (1833). But after middle age he sided with the evangelicals and conservatives, though always an advocate of church reform and reform of convocation, of revision of the prayer book and also of the Authorized Version of the Bible. In later life he spoke of `those noxious errors, Tractarian and Neological'. His principal work was his commentary on the Bible, which occupied him for several years."--W. A. Greenhill, `Girdlestone, Charles (1797-1881)', rev. H. C. G.

John MacGowan (1726-1780) Scottish particular Baptist minister. "He was converted among the Wesleyan Methodists, and by them ordained to the ministry... he left the Methodists and untied with the Congregationalists; light continuing to increase upon him, he followed the Saviour in immersion. In July, 1767 he was ordained pastor of the Devonshire Square church, London. He continued in this office till his death."--Cathcart: Baptist Ency., p.730. "Macgowan was probably more effective with his pen than in the pulpit, certainly if the number of titles authored and the frequency of their reprinting be any criteria. He had a considerable following in America as well as in Britain, and his works were translated into Welsh and Gaelic."--Charlotte Fell-Smith, `Macgowan, John (1726-1780)', rev. J. H. Y. Briggs, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/17516, accessed 3 May 2013] In this work full of satire and irony, Macgowan mercilessly castigates Oxford University for expelling the six young men "for praying, reading, and expounding the Scriptures." Although listed in Green's bibliography of Anti-Methodist publications, the author is critical only of Oxford University & the Church of England. He does mention in his preface: "Concerning the Sermon I would have it observed, 1. That I pretend not to justify any part of the Methodists conduct, besides praying to God, reading, expounding the scriptures, and singing hymns, &c."

[He was] educated at Sidney College, Cambridge... He was appointed rector of Rempstone, in Nottinghamshire... Dr. Pearson was considered an excellent preacher, and one of the most learned men of his times. ...his fame chiefly rests on his controversial writings against antagonists of necessitarian proclivities... On the other side, Dr. Pearson was among the first to sound an alarm respecting the danger to which the Church was exposed by the spread in it of Calvinistic views of Christian doctrine... In fact Dr. Pearson was the champion of the Arminian clergy in the Church, and the champion of the Church itself against whatever seemed to threaten its integrity and its perpetuity."--McClintock & Strong: Ency. Biblical, Theol. & Eccl. Lit. We offer Pearson's proposal for changes in the Athanasian Creed. In his introduction he says that it is unfortunate that the Athanasian Creed is rarely used even though the rubric calls for thirteen time in a year.

Thomas Spencer (1796-1853) "writer on social subjects; fellow of St. John's college, Cambridge, 1823; became a zealous social reformer in his curacy of Hinton Charterhouse, 1826-47; a keen opponent of slavery, the corn laws, intemperance, and pauperism; published pamphlets."--Concise DNB p1227. In this pamphlet the author objects to taking the collection requested by the Queen for several reasons, among them being that raising money for the teaching of the church catechism in school was not appropriate for a national school which would have dissenters in them, etc.

Jeremy Taylor (1613-1667) Church of England bishop and writer. "He was a chaplin in the royalist army in 1642. After imprisonment for a short time, he retired to Wales in 1645 where he lived as chaplain to Lord Carbery at Golden Grove. Many of Taylor's best works were written here... Taylor's fame to-day rests almost entirely on his devotional writings..."--Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church, p.1325. Taylor's work on extempore prayer is a response to "this book which the Assembly of Divines is pleased to call The Directory for Prayer." He argues against the use of extempore prayer quoting among others scriptures such as Eccles. 5.2 "Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God, for God is in heaven and thou upon earth, therefore let thy words be few."
