Excerpt from The Church in the Furnace: Essays by Seventeen Temporary Church of England Chaplains on Active Service in France and Flanders "For the proudly guarded lips, Streets where men nor strive nor cry, For the armies and the ships, Youth and laughing chivalry.For the things that shall be won, Clean and splendid from the flame, For the brave new life begun, Blessed be Thy holy Name! They shall see who are unborn, That remote, resplendent thing, Of the which, forespent and torn, All the world is travailing.Lift your hearts above the years, Thank our Lord not once or twice, For the horror and the tears, Bitterness and sacrifice." - J. S. "War will only be overcome when a moral substitute has been provided for it which will absorb all its qualities of strenuousness, indignation at wrong, indifference to property and life; for, to the end, justice and freedom can be defended only by the courage, devotion, and self-sacrifice which fear not them that kill the body and after that have no more that they can do." - John Oman. "Romance, that wasThe coloured air of a forgotten causeAbout the heads of heroes dead and bright, Shines home: we are accompanied with lightBecause of youth among us; and the nameOf man is touched with an ethereal flame: There is a newness in the world begun, A difference in the setting of the sun.Oh, though we stumble in blinding tears, and thoughThe beating of our hearts may never knowAbsence in pangs more desolately keen, Yet blessed are our eyes, because they have seen."

Product Description:

Excerpt from The Church in the Furnace: Essays by Seventeen Temporary Church of England Chaplains on Active Service in France and Flanders

I draw attention to these facts with the hope that I may induce the meticulous critic to look upon our work with less readiness to dwell upon shortcomings which might have been avoided, had the writers been able to work at leisure and with the closer co-operation that would have been possible, if we had waited till the end of the war. But it would seem likely that any value the book may have will be found to lie in the fact that it has the smell of fire in it, because it has been largely written in the very midst of experiences which urge men to speak the truth they see as never before in their lives.
