This is a study of the social, economic, and political role of Vodka in nineteenth-century Russia. Since the `Green Serpent' first appeared in sixteenth-century Muscovy, it has played a vital part in Russian life. Vodka became an essential part of Russian working-class celebrations: personal, religious, and commercial. Trade in Vodka redistributed wealth upwards through Russian society over several centuries. Indeed, Russia's status as a great power was underpinned by it: by the nineteenth century, it generated one-third of government revenue - enough to cover most of the costs of the vast army. The dependence on Vodka of both people and state has endured into the Gorbachev era. But despite Vodka's key role in Russian history, and the complex network of corruption associated with it, the subject has been ignored by most historians until now. This study concentrates on an important transitional era in the history of Vodka: the early nineteenth century. During this period, Vodka taxes played the role that salt taxes had played in the ancien r--eacute--;gime in France. The abolition of the tax farm in 1863 should be seen as one of the most important of the `Great Reforms' of the 1860s, an era which, in many ways, parallels the glasnost of the 1980s.

Klara Tammany is a professional Christian educator who goes about her calling with a joyous urgency. This book demonstrates her impassioned approach to religious instruction. She starts with the premise that ongoing Christian education must be central to a life of faith, and then proceeds from the corollary that baptism must be central to all Christian education. Eight group sessions focus repeatedly on water, first as a natural element necessary to life, then as a symbolic element necessary to spirituality. Gradually, through prayer, song, scripture, silence, poetry, visual arts, storytelling, group discussion, and personal reflection, water--as baptismal element--gains ascendancy. No longer mere, occasional refreshment, Living Water inundates, becomes life's very medium. This text makes for excellent catechumenal preparation but is intended for use by all Christians--those who are years into their journeys as well as those who are beginning. Designed for small groups of adult Episcopalians, the program is easily adaptable to other denominations, to one-on-one spiritual mentoring, to children, young adult, or intergenerational groups, and even to individuals for private meditation.

This ecumenical collection of essays on Christian initiation from a number of liturgical scholars presents analyses of ancient sources and challenges to the traditional interpretations of those sources, an investigation of the development and meaning of "confirmation", descriptions and interpretations of contemporary initiation rites, and a discussion of the challenges and opportunities offered by infant initiation. Many of these essays have long been "required reading" for teachers and students of Christian initiation. They are conveniently collected together here for all who seek a solid foundation in initiatory theology and history leading to an informed pastoral practice in the churches today.

For centuries, Christians have gathered to hear messages of forgiveness and redemption, hope and abundant life. They have come from far and near to drink from the waters of everlasting life. Living Water is a collection of sermons conceived to reveal the love of God poured out in Jesus Christ as the true living water. These sermons address those particular ideas and beliefs necessary to sustain faith in the rough and tumble world of 21st Century living. Preached first at St. John's Episcopal Church, Arlington, MA, they originate out of the author's concerns as pastor and prophet for the spiritual well-being of a particular people in a particular place. Nevertheless, the themes contained in each sermon are universal, having relevance for all spiritual seekers throughout the world and across denominational and interfaith boundaries. Ronald Ramsey shows how the gift of faith, animated by the grace of God, can transform and enliven the human soul. Living Water is a treasure of pastoral insights and unique biblical perspectives which explores the challenges of human living and offers hope for spiritual seekers and prophetic light for the spiritual journey.
