All the series introductions posted here are late draft versions. Although there is a common theme that runs throughout, each introduction is Volume specific.
Tell the truth or at least don't lie. Remember to build in truth, because there is no hiding from it. We live in the times when the secret of every heart shall be revealed.
— Sarah A. Hoyt
Introduction to the Series: Volume 1
In one form or another, these project has taken shape over several decades. While what needed to be done was clear at each stage of this long-term reflective enterprise, the final shape only started to emerge over time. It is only now, when it seems necessary to reflect back on the entire process and in hindsight give meaning to it all that this series of books came into being.
Although crude in many ways, and certainly requiring the expert hands of a knowledgeable editor, these books lay out what has been accomplished. Do with it what you will.
