John Henry Hobart was the frank, fierce, and fearless third Episcopal bishop of New York. He came into a starving, stagnant post-revolution Episcopal Church, and brought a fire and passion for growth and education that founded two colleges, wrote several books, and led him on a breathlessly paced pastoral circuit that caused a slow decline in his health, and death at the age of 54. These collected works capture his zeal for the Church and his desire to see the tools necessary for a fulfilling faith in the hands of the general public. These volumes provide a prominent historical perspective on the significance of Church sacraments, fasts, and festivals, a look at how they are best observed, and collections of prayers and blessings for diverse situations.
These works of John Henry Hobart are valuable resources for Church leaders, students of Church history, and those interested in the development of the Episcopal Church.
