14 Cheshire, Leonard, V. C. The Face of Victory.
Hutchinson of London, 1961. 
Octavo, black boards (hardcover), 179 pp. Fine, with bookplate; in a Very Good dust jacket with lightly rubbed edges. From dust jacket: In the last war Group Captain Leonard Cheshire became a legend. That he won a Victoria Cross was almost an inevitable outcome. But since the war his work on behalf of suffering humanity has made him an international figure, loved with reverence and humility. The Cheshire Homes are known throughout the world, but what are they? And how did they come into being? Above all, what made Leonard Cheshire turn from war to serve his fellows? In The Face of Victory Leonard Cheshire tells with a wealth of fascinating detail just how this astonishing change in his pattern of life came about. Of how, not long after he had seen an atom bomb dropped on Japan, he started on the path that brought him up against almost impossible odds, and brought a host of his fellows deep in his debt, not only in Britain but throughout the world. Running through the book is the story of Leonard Cheshire's search for the true religion, culminating in his conversion to Roman Catholicism. The devotion that made Leonard Cheshire ignore the odds and costs of war has become a devotion that makes him ignore the odds and costs of peace, and they can be as great, in a manner that clearly marks him out as one of the most remarkable men of our time.

16 Coudert, Allison P. and Jeffrey S. Shoulson; Editors. Hebraica Veritas? Christian Hebraists and the Study of Judaism in Early Modern Europe. Edited by Allison P. Coudert and Jeffrey S. Shoulson.
Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, (2004). First Edition. 
Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), silver letters, x, 316 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From dust jacket: In the early modern period, the religious fervor of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, social unrest, and millenarianism all seemed to foster greater anti-Judaism in Christian Europe, yet the increased intolerace was also accompanied by more intimate and complex forms of interaction between Christians and Jews. Printing, trade, and travel combined to bring those from both sides of the religious divide into closer contact than ever before, while growing interest in magic and the Kabbalah encouraged Christians to study Hebrew in addition to Latin and Greek. In Hebraica Veritas?... noted scholars trace how these early modern encounters played key roles in defining attitudes toward personal, national, and religious identity in Western culture. As Christians increasingly patronized Jewish scholars, in person and print, Christian Hebraism flourished. The twelve essays assembled here address the important but often neglected subject of the early modern encounter between Christians and Jews. They illustrate how this involvement shaped each group's self-perception and sense of otherness and contributed to the emergence of the modern study of cultural anthropology, comparative religion, and Jewish studies. But the chapters also reveal how the encounter challenged traditional religious beliefs, fostering the skepticism, toleration, and irrelgion conventionally associated with the Enlightenment.

19 Edwards, James R. Is Jesus the Only Savior?
Grand Rapids, Michigan; Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., [2005]. 
Octavo, softbound, xiii, 250 pp. Covers protected with clear contact paper; otherwise, Fine (As New). ŅIn this timely book for believers, inquirers, and skeptics alike, James R. Edwards faces head-on the question of whether or not Jesus is indeed the sole savior of the world. After tracing the currents of moderrnity from the Enlightenment to the Jesus Seminar, Edwards contends that the assumptions of the most skeptical historical-Jesus scholars are no more intellectually defensible than the claims of faith. He then assembles extensive support to show that Jesus considered himself the unique and saving mission of God to the world. Edwards devotes the second half of the book to discussing Jesus as savior in light of contemporary cultural currents, speccifically addressing the thorny issues of religious pluralism, moral relativism, postmodernism, and the quest for world peace. Illustrated with real-life stories.
