looking for a certain book,... - Dave - 02-21-2004

Don't wish to use this forum as a hunt and search, but this book is eluding me. Pulling out my resources in hopes that maybe someone knows something I don't in purchasing this book:

William Whiston, The Primitive New Testament

Anyone with any ideas?

I have William Whiston's works on Flavius Josephus. Whiston was the third Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University who succeeded Isaac Newton.

I am more interested in Newton's "Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John" which was published 6 years after his death. Until now I couldn't find the book.

I am glad you asked about William Whiston because while trying to answer your question, I finally found Isaac Newton's great book online. <!-- s:bigups: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bigups.gif" alt=":bigups:" title="Big Ups" /><!-- s:bigups: -->

Newton says, "I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired. I study the Bible daily."

I suggest you try which is my favourite out of print bookseller. I think they are the best for scholarly resources and out of print books. I used to buy many books from them long before there was an Amazon. There was no web site for me to refer to more than a decade ago. Only catalogues! <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/happy.gif" alt="Big Grin" title="Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

You can try Project Gutenberg for books that are in public domain. I did a search but couldn't find the book you mentioned.

You should bookmark this site

Thanks for the help Dan. I emailed Vance publications also to see if they can reprint it. Been looking for the last 2 days on this and was amazed that I could find nothing on this.
