See what you think of this:
Hopefully all of your books appear on that page. I am not convinced that I have done this perfectly. There are lots of Spurgeons, and several Charles Spurgeons, but I can't tell them apart. The main thing is that the C. H. Spurgeons can no longer be a part of the Charles.

I hope you will forgive my bluntness before. I'm not known for niceties. I apologize.
I will fix it as best I can.
Let's go back to square one. On Library Thing we combine author names because people list them differently. We hope that the names all represent the same person, but at the point that they do not, we must split the author so that the people are separated. This has happened with everyone named C. H. Spurgeon. If some of C. H. Spurgeon's works were authored by Charles Haddon Spurgeon, you alias the **books** into Charles Haddon Spurgeon. You do not combine the Charles Haddon Spurgeon name with the C. H. Spurgeon names.

Do not combine Charles H. Spurgeon with C. H. Spurgeon because C. H. Spurgeon is a split author.
Do not combine Charles Haddon Spurgeon with C. H. Spurgeon because C. H. Spurgeon is a split author.
Thanks very much for your encouraging words. I think you'll like *The Mighty Weakness of John Knox,* I really enjoyed working on it. Greg
What is Religion? Religion is a hard work.
There are many meaning of the word ‘ Religion’.
What is Religion for me?
Religion is a hard work.
Book ‘ The pushcart prize, III:
Best of the small presses.
From a journey through the land of Israel.
By Pinchas Saden. Pages 132-133 ‘

‘ To be religious, in my terms, means to understand that
life is a parable of which God is the meaning – that is,
to live life as a struggle to make contact with the divine.
. . . .
– in other words, by the drying up of the previously
renewable source of human contact with God.
. . . . . .
There can be no other significance to life beside worshiping Him.
The rest is simple a question of how one understands this worship –
- that is, of how one understands God.
Worshiping God, as the phrase suggests*, has nothing to do with
pleasure or cultural frills. It is work, hard work, like paving a
road, or farming land, or building a house.
In general, I don’t believe that the purpose of life in this world is
to snatch a little pleasure here or there. If it were, we might as
well have been born bedbugs. In whatever we live and do – in our
happiness, our suffering, our love, our hate, our passions,
our thoughts – we must live and do it not just for itself, but as
a parable, as a question, as a war. As work. As worship.
What is man? Man is question. God is answer.
If the answer were available here, in this life, the question
would be unnecessary. The painful tension between the two
gives life its energy.’
=====================. .

is the same as the word for ‘ work’. Translator./

Re Tenth Presbyterian Church.


I must confess I have not read it yet, but it looks good!

I don't think it is a 'limited edition', though it may be a title that the publishers feel will have limited sales and thus be on a short print run. It is a revision of a 1979 title: Making God's Word Plain: Tenth Presbyterian Church 150 years.
