PBB Resource Requests

Just thought I would put out an offer. If there are books that you want in PBB format but do not have the tool, I will try to assist you with the conversion part. What I would ask of you:

1. Provide a Microsoft Word or OpenOffice Writer formatted document. Use the Header Styles to define the chapters and headers that you want in the book.
2. Provide at least one Internet URL that shows that the work is in the Public Domain.
3. Provide the reference (Internet URL if possible) of where the text came from; I want to be sure to credit the proper sources.
4. Provide the Title, Author, Language, Copyright (or public domain), Publisher, and optionally a description to be placed into the book’s metadata.

If you are able to put this information and resource together that would mean very little work on my part. This should result in at most a one week turnaround on your PBB. If you are having trouble with one or more of the items above, I can try to help as time allows – but it would probably slow things down a little.

Anyway, the offer is made. 🙂

Grace: An Exposition of God’s Marvelous Gift

Chafer’s classic treatise on God’s Grace is presented for a new generation. In his very methodical style, he clearly illustrates what Grace is, what it is not, and what it can do. Spending much of his time writing about life under Grace, Chafer touches on the Law, the Sabbath, the sovereignty of Grace, and many more related issues. As an evangelist, writer, and teacher, Chafer set the pace for much of conservative Christianity in the first half of the 20th century, and many of his writings, such as Grace, have become classic reference material to this day.

Legends of the Jews

Louis Ginzberg’s landmark seven-volume The Legends of the Jews assembles the many elaborations and embellishments of Biblical stories that flourished in the centuries following the Bible’s own creation. Ginzberg devoted most of his life to gathering these legends from their original sources – written in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Syrian, Aramaic, Ethiopic, Arabic, Persian, and Old Slavic – and reproducing them completely, accurately, and vividly. He presents them in their traditional Biblical sequence and reconciles the sometimes contradictory versions of the same stories found in different sources. In addition to four volumes of the legends themselves, The Legends of the Jews includes two indispensable volumes of notes, which provide the sources for every legend, as well as a comprehensive index to the people, places, and motifs found in the legends and their sources.
