Augustine (Outstanding Christian Thinkers)
Augustine (Outstanding Christian Thinkers)
by Mary Clark R.S.C.J.
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.99

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful
3.0 out of 5 stars Not to be used on its own., 21 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It must be borne in mind that the author is a philosopher and not a theologian. The work is well researched but not all conclusions are valid. Brown is more sound and also more readable. While this work is useful, it should not be taken on its own as a guide to Augustine.


Calvin's Old Testament Commentaries
Calvin's Old Testament Commentaries
by T. H. L. Parker
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for serious students, 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Students who wish an incisive and conservative study of the principles of OT theology should not miss this volume. It is a real help in understanding the unity of the Bible in its teaching and guards against treating the OT as inferior and useless.


Symphonie Nr.5
Symphonie Nr.5
Price: £5.91

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine performance, 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Symphonie Nr.5 (Audio CD)
This is a live recording and Bruckner is often heard better live. The Chicago symphony were in excellent form and the recording quality is very good. For the price, this is an excellent purchase.


Be Successful: 1 Samuel: Attaining Wealth That Money Can't Buy
Be Successful: 1 Samuel: Attaining Wealth That Money Can't Buy
by Warren W. Wiersbe
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for group Bible study, 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent and concise guide for individual students or groups. Mr. Wiersbe is well-read and has skill in dividing up the passages , bringing out the principle lessons. There are only 1 or 2 places where we would differ, eg. Samuel's alleged appearance at Endor and the work of the Spirit in the OT.


Paul, the Spirit, and the People of God

2.0 out of 5 stars A view of Paul as a charismatic., 17 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mr. Fee believes in contemporary tongue-speaking etc. He also takes Romans chapter seven to be entirely an experience of pre-conversion.There are other flaws in the book, but this should be sufficient warning regarding the contents.


My Sherlock Holmes
My Sherlock Holmes
by Michael Kurland
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

2.0 out of 5 stars A question of lost identity., 29 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)
This reads more like a homage to the character of Moriarty rather than Holmes and friends of Mr. Holmes will be aghast at the liberties taken with their friend's character.It is a pity that this genre is not safeguarded in some way in order to protect unsuspecting purchasers. The previous review of this book will supply details.


Thorndike Buckinghams - Large Print - The Secret Notebooks of Sherlock Holmes
Thorndike Buckinghams - Large Print - The Secret Notebooks of Sherlock Holmes
by June Thomson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars No.5 in a fine set., 24 Oct. 2011
June Thomson again captures the late 19th century style of the originals, cross referencing events with Conan Doyle's original adventures. A complete set of these five volumes would be of value not only to the collector but also to a willing publisher. Thomson has spent much thought and research to ensure that she is not only accurate but sustains the reader's attention by her variety of cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Watsonian., 3 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another excellent volume from June Thomson, well-researched and thoroughly Watsonian in style. She accurately captures the personality of Holmes and the banter between the two friends. The stories are refreshing and appropriate to the era of Holmes. Conan Doyle would have been proud of such a successor. The avid readers of Holmes will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another masterpiece by June Thomson., 1 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although there are many contributions to this genre, the productions of June Thomson are outstanding. While true to the original style, the stories are refreshing and not outlandish like some imitators of Doyle. A cheaper set of her four volumes is a desideratum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to tell the difference., 1 Oct. 2011
If one did not know it, then these stories would pass for Conan Doyle originals. The style and complexity of the cases is genuine Holmes. The prices are a little high, but the reader will not be disappointed. June Holmes has thoroughly studied her master so well that it is difficult to tell the difference.
