A Modern Pilgrim's Progress, A Fellow Pilgrim    ( Arthur Kitson 1859-1937)
1 A Fellow Pilgrim ( Arthur Kitson 1859-1937) A Modern Pilgrim's Progress
Oxford The Alden Press 1936 Soft Cover Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
Black titles on brown card boards which have a stain to front and light creasing to spine. Internally there is an inscription to half title page, foxing to endpapers, to closed edges and to the occasional page else a clean, tight and unmarked copy. 462 pages. Second edition (first was 1935). The author, although not named is Arthur Kitson (1859-1937), a British Monetary Theorist and inventor. In 1901, he invented the vaporised oil burner. The fuel was vaporised at high pressure and burned to heat the mantle, giving an output of over six times the luminosity of traditional oil lights. His dedication is still a valid point today - 'I dedicate this work to my friend and fellow crusader - Hardy Fighter - in the Campaign or Righteousness against the Money-Power, the chief Cause of the World's Economic evils and misery'. The book is a parody of Bunyan's classic and has such characters as Christian - A farmer burdened with debt, Lord Time-Server M.P. - one of the servants of the Money-Power and Member of Parliament for the City of Deflation, Professor Shuffler - orthodox economist at Vanity College and a paid hireling of the Money-Power, Interpreter - A pioneer of economic righteousness and a fearless teacher of the Truth.

Exile and Restoration  -  A Study of Hebrew Thought of the Sixth Century BC, Ackroyd, Peter R.
6 Ackroyd, Peter R. Exile and Restoration - A Study of Hebrew Thought of the Sixth Century BC
London SCM Press 1968 0334004098 / 9780334004097 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A Fine unmarked copy with dustjacket which has a small repaired closed tear to lower front. xv + 286 pages. The period of exile and restoration is a crucial one for the understanding of the development of Old Testament thought. The collapse of the state, the destruction of the Temple, the break-up of the community, all necessitated a re-thinking of the religious tradition. This book sets out to examine some of the aspects of the rich thought of the period. The problems involved are many: the course of events is not always clear, and the literature of the time presents difficulties. Much of this study is therefore devoted to a thorough scrutiny of what material we have: Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Haggai, Zechariah, the Deuteronomic History and the Priestly Work. **** NOT EX LIB ****

London SCM Press 1979 0334022789 / 9780334022787 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good No Jacket 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A near Fine clean, tight and unmarked copy. xxxiii + 215 pages. Over the last 25 years incredible changes have taken place in the Presbyterian Church of Brazil, and at the beginning of the 1960's it was acclaimed as the outstanding success story of Protestantism in Latin America, with its vitality and prospects for further growth. Now, after long domination by a small group of reactionary leaders, the church is decimated and the word Presbyterian has connotations of religious fanaticism and repression. Professor Alves explains how this happened, and it is a sobering story, made more grim by the thought that, as an increasing tide of conservatism sweeps the churches of North America and indeed of Europe, the same thing could happen there. **** NOT EX LIB ****
