Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon by Daniel Dennett is reviewed in this week's New York Review of Books by Freeman Dyson. Dennett stands on the outside of religion asking all the biggest questions without pretending to be able to answer them. Freeman Dyson, looks at the questions from the inside, much as did Henry James. Dyson's review, then, is broken into halves: a positive review of Breaking the Spell, and Dyson's philosophical objections and recommendations of books more from his perspective.
A Companion to Common Worship Volume 2, edited by Paul Bradshaw, reviewed in Church Times by Michael Perham.
Conviction and Conflict: Islam, Christianity and World Order, by Michael Nazir-Ali, reviewed in the Church Times by Philip Lewis
Mission-shaped Church: A Theological Response, by John M. Hull, reviewed in Church Times by Philip Welsh
St Francis Xavier Bible Game. A new site that looks interesting: 'a source for bible word games based on the principles and history of the Catholic faith.' (Cross listed in Odds and Ends.)
Zhubert.com. This very good site provides full searchable text of the Bible in its original languages, complete with instant hover-over morphological analysis. The tutorial is useful, and so are the online resources for learning biblical Greek. (Cross listed in Theological Resources.)
Liturgical Spirituality under the Southern Cross: A Study of the Impact of the Anglo-Catholic Tradition on the Anglican Church in Melanesia, by David V. Vunagi (1998). In this M.Th. thesis, David Vunagi (now Bishop of Temotu in the Church of Melanesia) explores the liturgical impact of early Anglo-Catholic missionaries in Melanesia, as well as the potential for liturgical inculturation in the future.
Memorial of the Rev. Wm. Chauncy Langdon, on the Subject of the Italian Reform Movement (1865). This brief memorial by W.C. Landgon (1831-1895) to the General Convention of 1865 encourages the Episcopal Church USA to fund proselytising elements in the Roman Catholic Church on the Italian peninsula.

Portions of the Book of Common Prayer in Esperanto: Charles Wohlers has digitized Morning prayer, EVening Prayer and the Litany from La Libro de Komuna Prego.
Zhubert.com: This very good site provides full searchable text of the Bible in its original languages, complete with instant hover-over morphological analysis. The tutorial is useful, and so are the online resources for learning biblical Greek. (Cross listed in Biblical Resources.)
Lost Gospel Revealed; Says Jesus Asked Judas to Betray Him: A set of articles in the online National Geographic News including a PDF file of the full Coptic text.
Saving Anglicanism: An Historical Perspective on Decisions Facing the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church: Lionel Deimel of Via Media USA has written a long and thoughtful essay whose topic can be gleaned from its title. It is, alas, available only as a PDF file, but it's quite worth reading.
Wounded in Common Mission: the Term of Inter-Christian Divisiveness: Christopher Wells, writing for the Anglican Communion Institute, has written this essay in anticipation of the US General Convention.
Public Life and the Place of the Church: Reflections to honour the Bishop of Oxford, edited by Michael Brierley is reviewed in the Church Times by Michael Northcott. 'Very readable' and 'fascinating' are rarely found in review of a Festschrift.
Edward Dowler reviews Apocalypse Now? Reflections of Faith in a Time of Terror, by Duncan Forrester, with Things Shaken - Things Unshaken: Reflections on Faith and Terror, by Colin Morrise, also in the Church Times. 'Both books, in different ways, give the sense of being works in progress; provisional position statements rather than finished analyses. To some extent, this is precisely what is needed in a rapidly changing situation. Everything is moving so fast that there isn't really time for measured or full responses.'
Early Days of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Texas, by DuBose Murphy. This detailed article from Southwestern Historical Quarterly Online charts the history of Anglicanism in Texas from 1838 to 1850.
A Sermon delivered at the Consecration of William Meade, by William White (1829). Bishop White draws on more than forty years of experience in the episcopate in his sermon at the consecration of William Meade (1789-1862). There was some controversy, not about the man, but about the terms of his election; Meade would go on to serve for thirteen years as Assistant Bishop and another twenty as Bishop of Virginia.
