Picking up on an earlier post, I noted that Microsoft had backed out of the book digitization process. Yale's library was one of the casualties. Internet Archive is still alive for now, and I have to believe that the funding will be found to keep it going. In any case, it might be a good idea to pull down some of the worthwhile books that are out there. In the comments on that earlier post, I suggested:
- Albert Schweitzer, Quest of the Historical Jesus (note that the links to the MSN site on the earlier post are indeed now dead, but these are links to the Internet Archive collection)
- Albert Schweitzer, The Mystery of the Kingdom of God
- The works of Kirsopp Lake - including the four volume set of articles on the Book of Acts, titled "The Beginnings of Christianity"
- The classics by Henry Barclay Swete - including his version of the Greek OT, as well as his works on the Holy Spirit in the NT and the early church.
- The "Cambridge Septuagint." All the volumes are included -- including the volumes on the Historical Books of the OT. These particular volumes are not covered in the TC Ebind Index.
- Solomon Schechter's Some Aspects of Rabbinic Theology is still used as a textbook in the subject, and has been reprinted many times.
- J. B. Lightfoot's multi-volume text and commentary on several of the Apostolic Fathers is also available.
BTW, I could only find 2 of the volumes on Google Books that were fully viewable, so this is an instance where you really need Internet Archive.
Please add other books that you recommend be downloaded in the comments, and I will add them to this post.
