 CLARKE, ADAM, Discourses on Various Subjects Relative to the Being and Attributes of God and His Works in Creation, Providence and Grace
CLARKE, ADAM
Discourses on Various Subjects Relative to the Being and Attributes of God and His Works in Creation, Providence and Grace
New York, DB. Waugh and T. Mason, 1832. Leather-bound. Probably the second American edition (Printed by J. Collord). Large Octavo, measuring 8.75" x 5.50". Full brown calf with contrasting (gilt-on-red) spine label. Leather scuffed, corners bumped and rubbing to extremities. Light to moderate foxing throughout (text block shaded toward latter part of book), but none so much that such obscures. 313 pp. Comprises sixteen sermons on such topics as "the Being and Attributes of God; The Worshiip which God Requires from Man; The Plan of Human Redemption; God's Willingness to save All Men; Experimental Religion and its Fruits; TheDifferent Methods which God has used to Bring Mento the Knowledge of Himself; Christian Moderation, and others. Clarke writes in his beginning section (called "Advertisement") "..Some of the Discourses..may be thought to be too scientific, or that they affect to be such. I can say I affect nothing,and I have inserted nothing..As far as I have proceeded, I have aimed in all to xhibit the most momentous truths of Divine Revelation: -- and as far as I could, the depest workings of the Divine Spirit on the soul of man.." (p. vii). While he taught that "..the Bible provides a complete interpretation of God's nature and will..", and for the most part was aligned with the exegetical belief-set of the Wesleyan Methodists, he did not embrace Jesus Christ's eternal sonship, and maintained that the Bible did not affirm this position. (paraphrased, Wikipedia entry, Adam Clarke); for this he stirred up no small controversy. Very Good .

 SALE, GEORGE (TRANSLATOR), The Koran : Commonly Called the Alkoran of Mohammed; (Translated Into English from the Original Arabic)
SALE, GEORGE (TRANSLATOR)
The Koran : Commonly Called the Alkoran of Mohammed; (Translated Into English from the Original Arabic)
New York, American Book Exchange, 1880. Reprint. Hardcover. Brown scuffed boards, measuring 6 5/8" x 4.75". Gilt lettering. Back pocket size. 336 pp. of text, followed by 14 pp. of ads, the last leaf of which shows a closed tear. In 1734 George Sale published his translation of The Koran; it was the first genuine translation of the Qur'an into English, and even though Sale significantly drew upon a Latin translation, nonetheless, his efforts are considered remarkably precise and have stood the test of time.. Interestingly, Sale's Koran has been vilified by Muslim writers. Some have objected, for example, to his constant interpretation of passages speaking of struggling and fighting in the way of God as meaning physical warfare, an interpretation out of favour with many modern Muslim commentators who seek to soften such passages by suggesting that only spiritual warfare in the soul is meant. This is by no means clear from the texts usually cited, however, and such interpretations only serve to expose the sentiments of those who desire to eliminate a theme considered unacceptable today but one which was regarded as perfectly consistent with true religion at the time of Muhammad" (Paraphrased from Muhammad and The Religion of Islam, by John Gilchrist).
