New York Harpercollins Publishers 2002 0060194413 / 9780060194413 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed to Barb and Jeff and signed by author. Dust jacket now in Brodart mylar protective (clear) cover.From the author of the New York Times bestseller In Her Defense comes a riveting new thriller of betrayal and redemption in the nation's capital.Philip Barkley had come far enough in Washington to know where those proverbial bodies were buried, but not so far that he'd lie about it. In the capital, that was no-man's-land, and his fall from grace was swift.When personal tragedy accelerates his downward spiral, all that remains is his integrity, and it's the price of a fresh start. The disappearance of Senate Intelligence Committee aide Martin Green indicates a breach of national security. Senator Warren Young, the party's best chance to keep the White House, needs a credible report that the missing man was no spy. Barkley is required to oversee the investigation and deliver the "right" result.As the case progresses, the signs grow more troubling, and even an FBI agent isn't what she seems. The pursuit of Green leads across generations, a trail of deception and murder that began with a woman's fall from a Bronx rooftop almost fifty years earlier.Barkley's odyssey finally brings him to the door of a retired detective haunted by a case he never solved. Together, the two men seek justice -- and their own renewal. .; 1.3 x 8.9 x 6 Inches; 330 pages; p; Signed by Author

Proceedings General Association General Baptists  1920 Fiftieth Annual Session, Owensville, Indiana, No Author Listed
13 No Author Listed Proceedings General Association General Baptists 1920 Fiftieth Annual Session, Owensville, Indiana
Owensville, Ind General Association General Baptist 1920 First Edition; First Impression Paperback Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Buff colored paper with black print. Contains the documented proceeding of the 50th Annual session. Includes Order of Business, Committees and reports, Listings of the names of the representatives, addresses of the ministers and their church location, Bylaws, Constitution, Articles of Faith, financial information, etc. A home-grown religious movement had its beginnings in the 1820s in Evansville, Indiana. General Baptists came into existence because of the revival preaching of Elder Benoni Stinson. He boldly and frequently proclaimed the good news of the gospel that “Jesus Christ, by the grace of God, tasted death for everyman” with the result that “whosoever will may be saved”. This preaching from texts found in the New Testament books of Hebrews and Romans resulted in the planting of new churches, a networking with other like-minded groups, and the birthing of a national organization in 1870. But why General Baptist? The name is actually a summary of the core theology of the movement reflecting belief in a general atonement that anyone who is willing to trust Jesus as Savior may be saved. This theological name stood in contrast to those groups of the 19th century who advocated a particular or limited atonement for in their theology only a few, not the many, could be saved. Booklet now in archival sleeve to protect condition. Rare.; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 36 pages

London Griffith Farran Okeden & Welsh 1891 1166305481 / 9781166305482 1st Edition Thus; First Impression Hardcover Fair with No dust jacket as issued 
Green Cover with black print. 1891 reprint of the 1552 edition. Prior owners bookplate in front.Pages browning and fragile due to age and a few pages have tears. This is not a modern reprint but the actual 1891 printing of the 1552 edition. This copy contains some underlining and comments from a former Episcopal bishop and a personal notation when he handed it down to his son an Episcopal priest and Navy chaplin. By God's grace the accession of Edward VI in 1547 permitted the acceleration of the reformation of the Church of England. Some changes were made almost immediately but it was not until March 1548 that the first new services were issued in the form of an English supplement to the latin mass. the Second Prayer Book was published and authorised for use from All Saints Day 1552. It was not well received by many and with the death of Edward the following year and the accession of Mary the book itself was in use for only a very short time. With three specific alterations, reportedly at the request of Queen Elizabeth herself, the book was re-instated and authorised for use from May 8 1559. Scarce copy if not Rare. ; The Ancient & Modern Library of Theological Literature; 9.02 X 5.98 X 0.53 inches; 250 pages

17 Rice, John H Memoir of James Brainerd Taylor
New York Published by John P. Haven 1834 First Edition; Various Hardcover Poor with no dust jacket 
1834 printing and NOT a reprint. Foxing. Tape on bottom portion of spine. Cover has heavy wear. James Brainerd Taylor was born in the shipbuilding town of Middle Haddam, Connecticut, on April 15, 1801. He is a maternal collateral descendant (cousin, four times removed) of famed American missionary David Brainerd (1718–1747) and a paternal collateral descendant of the famed Church of England clergyman-author Jeremy Taylor (1613–1667). The fourth of eleven children, he and his siblings were all raised in the town's Protestant Episcopal Church, Christ Church (est. 1785). His role in the spiritual revival at Yale and the surrounding area, and his receiving of a license to preach as an evangelist from the Middlesex Consociation of the Congregational Church on October 8, 1828, in East Haddam, Connecticut, are two highlights of Taylor's brief two years as a student in New Haven. Taylor died just seventeen days shy of his twenty-eighth birthday. With the bottom of his epitaph reading, "Reader, his epitaph is what he would have yours to be, A sinner saved by grace," the remains of J. B. Taylor are today at the Hampden-Sydney College Church Cemetery.; 330 pages

Pearl, Florence James Alexander Pearl was born according to his own family Bible on 17 April 1807 in probably Knox County, Ohio, USA. His most probable parents according to the Pearl Family Website are Alexander Perrill (c. 1770-c.1814) and Grace Beaumont (c. 1770-c. 1815) who were married on 29 May 1791 in Frederick, Maryland. Since he was orphaned at such an early age, it is difficult to know for certain that these were his parents, but there is fairly good evidence. The name as his father used it was Perrill. James used Pearl. There were many Perrill families in Maryland. ; 1807-1897; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 41 pages
