Of the making of many books...

Article by   July 2007
Two new publications caught my eye this week, and there could hardly be a greater contrast. One comes from Ireland in the seventeenth century: The Body of Divinity: Being the Sum and Substance of the Christian Religion by Archbishop James... continue
