When the Bolsheviks set out to build a new world in the wake of the Russian Revolution, they expected religion to die off. Soviet power used a variety of tools--from education to propaganda to terror—to turn its vision of a Communist world without religion into reality. Yet even with its monopoly on ideology and power, the Soviet Communist Party never succeeded in overcoming religion and creating an atheist society. A Sacred Space Is Never Empty presents the first history of Soviet atheism from the 1917 revolution to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. Drawing on a wealth of archival material and in-depth interviews with those who were on the front lines of Communist ideological campaigns, Victoria Smolkin argues that to understand the Soviet experiment, we must make sense of Soviet atheism. Smolkin shows how atheism was reimagined as an alternative cosmology with its own set of positive beliefs, practices, and spiritual commitments. Through its engagements with religion, the Soviet leadership realized that removing religion from the "sacred spaces" of Soviet life was not enough. Then, in the final years of the Soviet experiment, Mikhail Gorbachev—in a stunning and unexpected reversal—abandoned atheism and reintroduced religion into Soviet public life. A Sacred Space Is Never Empty explores the meaning of atheism for religious life, for Communist ideology, and for Soviet politics.

Excerpt from The Story of the Canadian Revision of the Prayer Book Book in Canada, and incidentally in other branches of the Anglican Communion. In this sense it is a companion to the Prayer Book, and it is hoped may find a place in the homes of Church people generally. One great object will be served, if the book becomes a Manual or Hand-book for students. The term is used in a wide sense and refers not only to students in theology, preparing for the Ministry of the Church, but also to Study classes and Bible classes. If the young people of the Church are to grow up loyal and faithful members, they must be instructed in her principles, and be led to appreciate her services. The subject matter of the book is so important that several Bishops have already intimated that they will make it a text-book for candidates for Holy Orders, and that they will ask the various training colleges to place it in the curriculum. The need of adapting and enriching the Book of Common Prayer to meet the conditions of life in Canada had long been felt. The first Bishop of Nova Scotia (dr Charles Inglis), the first of our Colonial Bishops, when he entered upon his duties in 1787, soon discovered that he had to alter certain prayers to meet the necessities of the case, in more than one Province. He records in his Journal interviews with the Governors of the day in which he sought authority for the changes he proposed and for the forms he wished to use. Bishop Inglis was a man of large experience; he had been a missionary in Pennsylvania, in New Jersey, and he had been the Rector of the important parish of Trinity, New York. He prepared prayers for our Provincial Legislatures and forms for the Laying of a Corner Stone and the Con secration of Churches.
