William Whiston was an English theologian, historian, and mathematician, a leading figure in the popularisation of the ideas of Isaac Newton. He is now probably best known for helping to instigate the Longitude Act in 1714 (and his attempts to win the rewards that it promised) and his important translations of the Antiquities of the Jews and other works by Josephus (which are still in print).

Jesus And Yahweh: The Names Divine

By: Bloom, Harold

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, New York, U.S.A., Riverhead Books: 2005

Inscription: Signed by Harold Bloom

Seller ID: vgr16

ISBN: 1573223220

Condition: Fine


The most controversial, explosive, and important book yet from the renowned author and critic. Harold Bloom uses his unsurpassed skills to examine the character of Jesus: the inconsistencies, the contradictions, and the Gospels' flaws of logic. He also explores the character of Yahweh, who Bloom argues has more in common with Mark's Jesus than he does with God the Father of the Christian and rabbinic Jewish traditions. In fact, Bloom asserts, the Hebrew Bible of the Jews and the Christian Old Testament are very different books with very different purposes. At a time when religion has taken cen... View more info

Price: $400.00

Publisher: Pasadena, CA, 1918

Edition: 1st Edition

Inscription: Inscribed on the Cover By Upton Sinclair

Seller ID: kjb28

Condition: Good


This excoriating critique of religion, especially as represented by powerful clerical institutions, is a lesser-known work by the author who had earlier become famous with his publication of The Jungle, an expose of the poor labor conditions and unsanitary practices in Chicago's meat-packing industry. More than just a tirade against religion, this is an impassioned, idealistic socialist writing at the beginning of the First World War, when the notion of an international socialist revolution still seemed like a very real possibility to many of the left-leaning thinkers of the day. Sinclair's ch... View more info
