 BAKER, ALONZO L AND FRANCIS D NICHOL., Creation - Not Evolution.
BAKER, ALONZO L AND FRANCIS D NICHOL.
Creation - Not Evolution.
Mountain View, California: Pacific Press 1926. 1st Edition. Hardbound small 8vo (about 7.75 inches tall) 176 pages. Bibliography. Description: From the author's preface: ''Proceeding on the belief that the Bible is indeed the very Word of God, and that specifically the book of Genesis, which our fathers and we have taken as literal, gives the true account of the beginnings of our world, we shall endeavor in the first section of this book to show that the various facts of nature alleged to prove evolution do not prove it at all. The second section of the book will be devoted to an indictment of evolution before the bar of morals and religion; and on the positive side of the question, to a resume of the evidences for the reliability of the Scriptures, and for their acceptance as the inspired Word of God.'' This bears a stamp ''From the Hollywood office of Harvey Taylor, Authors' Representative, New York - Hollywood; 1751 North La Brea Avenue, Hollywood 6939.'' Though I cannot be one-hundred percent certain, I think it highly likely that this is the same Harvey Taylor who gained some small notoriety as ''a book scout and literary agent of sorts, who dizzied Charmian London with flattering attention in 1930 and managed to advertised himself as ''Literary Manager of the Jack London Estate'' before Charmian discovered his untrustworthiness.'' Co-author Francis D Nichol was supervising editor of the Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary, and chairman of the Ellen G. White Estate board of trustees. BINDING/CONDITION: dark olive cloth with black; owner's name written in (in addition to the Harvey Taylor stamp), otherwise Good condition; no dust jacket. ISBN: 001289

BARNES, ALBERT.
Notes on the New Testament: Explanatory and Practical, Matthew and Mark.
Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker Book House August, 1981. 24th Printing. Hardbound 8vo (8.75 inches tall) 400 pages. Description: This work was originally published around 1832 and revised and recast in 1840; this Baker Book House edition was first published in January of 1949. Note: even though the title page states ''Enlarged Type Edition'', one has to wonder what it was enlarged FROM. The type size is quite small (scripture), and even smaller yet for the notes, and it's mostly notes. This will be difficult reading for those of us over a certain age. ''Barnes' notes is an all-purpose commentary. It embodies exactly those features which are valued and appreciated by ministers and laymen alike. Among these are (1) its verse-by-verse coverage of the Scriptural text, (2) its satisfying explanation of each verse, (3) its practical application of the teachings of Scripture to everyday life, and (4) the clear and understandable language of the commentary.'' BINDING/CONDITION: greenish-gray cloth with red and gilt; two small rubbed spots along the top edge, otherwise a Very Good book, with a Very Good dust jacket. ISBN: 0801005663

BERRETT, WILLIAM E.
Teachings of the Book of Mormon.
Salt Lake City, Utah: Deseret Book Company 1965. Hardbound 8vo (about 9 inches tall) 241 pages. Description: A Course of Study for the Melchizedek Priesthood Quorums, The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints. Originally published in 1962, this is a later printing. William E Berrett was also the author of The Restored Church; he wrote text books for use in LDS schools, and went on to serve as Vice President of Brigham Young University. The publisher's blurb declares ''Elder Berrett feels that many of the finest teachings of this book of Latter-day Saint scripture have been neglected and are unappreciated by a majority of members of the Church. Most courses of study relating to the Book of Mormon have been devoted to the historical record and the general story of the Nephite and the Jaredite civilization. This study is designed to strike directly at the problems of religion and life for which the Book of Mormon makes vital contributions. It brings into full focus the religious philosophy of the ancient record which contains a fullness of the gospel.''

CAPOZZI, FRANCIS C.
God's Fool: A New Portrait of St. Francis of Assisi.
New York: Morehouse-Gorham Company 1956. Hardbound 8vo (about 8 inches tall) 222 pages. Description: The publisher's blurb reads: ''This is a living picture of the universally beloved St Francis, created out of the saint's very own disarming simplicity. Francis is portrayed through the simple words and actions which have made him an immortal legend. The author succeeds in 'getting himself out of the way' and uses no interpretation and resists all temptation to offer comments and personal opinion. The reader is enabled to see straight through to the saint and truly catches the likeness of the Francis that many will love to know.'' The author was born in Santeramo Italy. After receiving his Ph.B. from the Catholic University De Propaganda Fide in Rome, he was ordained deacon in 1909 and priest in 1910. He began his ministry in the Episcopal Church at St George's Church, Herrin, Illinois and from 1916 to 1951 he was priest in charge of two Pennsylvania churches in the Diocese of Bethlehem.

The New Testament In Its Original Order: A Faithful Version With Commentary.
Hollister, California: York Publishing Company 2004. 2nd Printing. Hardbound 10.75 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide 880 pages. Description: Translated from the Byzantine Greek; from the Stephens Text of 1550. The editor's foreword by Dr Will Tomory states, ''To enhance the clarity of Scripture obscured by time and by conflicting reading of key passages is a daunting challenge. Fred R Coulter has provided a New Testament translation that retains the grace and grandeur of the King James Version while seeking to clarify some of the problematic key passages. He has been mindful of the earlier giants who translated the New Testament, such as William Tyndale, as well as of later studies of scriptural text and of Judaic culture. He has focused on being accurate and faithful to the original Greek texts. Their convoluted syntax, at times elliptical phrasings and problematic grammar present a thorny challenge to the translator. That is a challenge I believe Mr. Coulter has met. My charge here has been to be a footnote to t he grand endeavor, namely to edit the scriptural text produced as well as the enlightening commentary and appendices on those Scriptures.'' The scriptural portions are presented in double column format with notes in the center. The typeface is an easy reading size. BINDING/CONDITION: dark purple binding, with pebbled look; gilt text and vignette; the corners are bumped, otherwise Near Fine condition. ISBN: 0967547938

With faith and courage, they survived the destruction of their homes and chapels. They battled unrelenting hunger until Church welfare supplies arrived from America.

Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company 1965. 1st Edition, so stated. Hardbound 8vo (8.5 inches tall) 320 pages. Bibliography, index. Description: Dust jacket design by Ben Shahn. The publisher's blurb reads: ''Wilfrid Desan, author of The Tragic Finale, a widely acclaimed analysis of Being and Nothingness, here applies the same technique to a book he believes equally important and far more inaccessible even to the reader of French because of the obscurity of its style. He begins with a description of the evolution of Sartre's social thought to its mature expression in the Critique, discussing those elements in Marx and in Hegel that he considers important for the understanding of Sartre. Then he proceeds to an examination of the introduction to the Critique, published in this country under the title A Search for Method, and thence to the core of the book.'' BINDING/CONDITION: light blue cloth with navy blue at the spine; this is an EX-LIBRARY copy with all the usual markings, and a spine label on the jacket; the jacket is reinforced on the reverse side with white tape; a sound reading copy; the jacket is Very Good and quite presentable other than the spine label.
