The Original Jesus
Otto Borchert 1944 4th edition "The man who invented it would be more astonished than its hero." The author quotes these words from Rousseau as an indication of his purpose, which is to make credible the portrait of Jesus as it is presented to us in the Gospels. In this classic work Borchert presents a living portrait of Jesus as found in the Gospels, eloquently countering the criticism and scepticism surrounding his life. Both Jesus' critics and those who testify to the beauty of Jesus' life agree on his uniqueness, for he defies all the categories of humanity. Borchert considers Jesus' relationship with God, mankind, the natural world and the miracles and examines the reactions to the person of Jesus throughout history.

5 Days of Luther, Day 1: To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, we’ve mined our rare book collections for all things Luther and put it into one special display. This 1791 copy of his table talks reminds us that Luther was not only intense and sharp-witted but also warm and open-hearted, as it begins with his analogy that the Bible “is like a fair and spacious orchard, wherein all sorts of trees do grow, from which we may pluck divers kinds of fruits; for in the Bible we have rich and precious comforts, learnings, admonitions, warnings, promises, threatenings, &c.” #rarebooks#antiquarianbooks#specialcollections#oldbooks#reformation500
The Origin of Cosmic Rays by V. L. Ginzburg and S. I. Syrovatskii.
Hardcover book published by Pergamon Press 1964, 426 pages with some black and white illustrations and photographs.
The study of cosmic rays, discovered some fifty years ago, forms one of the most important in the field of physics and astrophysics. Almost all information on the cosmos was obtained via optical “channels” until as recently as some twenty years ago and although there have been successful advances in astronomy the relative narrowness of the optical channel has considerably limited the possibilities and rate of progress of astrophysical research. In the authors’ opinion the most important recent feature in the development of astronomy is the appearance and increasing use of two new channels of astrophysical information; these are the reception of cosmic radio emissions (the ‘radio channel' used in radio astronomy) and the study of cosmic rays (the “cosmic ray channel”), This volume discusses these very questions, but basically only the field of research which can be called the astrophysics of cosmic rays, problems of radio astronomy being touched upon only insofar as they are connected with cosmic rays. $29.50 + postage #hgnew#bookstagram#instabook#rarebooks#bookporn#bookseller#vintagebooks#oldbooks#antiquarianbooks#booklover#books#Clunes#Clunesvictoria#booktown#Ballarat#Daylesford#booksforsale#science#astrophysics#astronomy#cosmicrays
