A Gloucestershire Village in the Great War: The Story of Apperley and Deerhurst 1914-1918
A Gloucestershire Village in the Great War: The Story of Apperley and Deerhurst 1914-1918
by Stephen Paul Miller
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Bob Wyatt, Stand To! The Journal of the Western Front Association No. 65 September 2002, 15 Jun 2014
A Gloucestershire Village in the Great War is “… is a very nicely produced book with good maps and illustrations, which took almost eight years to write, and is amongst the most complete and thorough memorial volume of recent times. The youngest to have died was a member of the 3rd Worcestershire Regiment – at 19, and the oldest was killed in 1916 aged 39. There is a chapter on life in the area before the war and sufficient about the background to enable the reader to make sense of the casualties. Details of each of the men are included in the text and extremely good descriptions of the actions with highlighted sections to help visitors to the battlefields. Photographs, maps and biographies abound and the book is much more than a list of names – the book is a good read as well! The best and most thorough book of its kind that we have had to review for some time, deserving of our best attention.”

Historical Reliability of the Gospels
Historical Reliability of the Gospels

1.0 out of 5 stars Rehashed Christian Apologetics, 14 July 2009
Despite the claims not to use circular arguments; that is to use the Bible itself as evidence for the historical validity of the Bible, Blomberg does this over and over again. Further he fails to address in any serious scholarly way those that doubt the historicity of the Gospels, dismissing their arguments as invalid simply because they are in the minority. Basically, it's a book of mainly tired, rehashed apologetics with little new to add to the debate
