These three books by R C Trench are two wonderful and insightful books. There are however two problems with them:

1) It is written in a very complex academic style which might be hard for some to follow.
2) It has a lot of anti Roman-Catholic biases and Roman Catholics might be offended.
3) It is sometimes hard to find and sometimes the version one finds "attempts" to make it more readable to modern readers....and that can be a muddle.

That said, I highly recommend these books which are often cited in other great writings. I especially recommend Notes on the Miracles of our Lord

I just received high speed internet- I lost connection(using "other" method) so I have missed your good blogs. I will read them...

Currently, I have picked up Anne Rice's "Christ the Lord-Out of Egypt" and part 2: The Road to Cana" it is told in first person from Jesus's point of view as a child. It is lovely so far and many people have recommended it to me.

high speed internet is waaaay more fun.

Isn't it wonderful that Anne Rice returned to the Lord? But one could see that in her vampire novels she was really beign called back. All those lost souls! Glad to see you back. -C

Glad to be back. I sent some more comments in your earlier posts...

I have not read one Vampire novel by her, yet her movies held appeal for me when they came out.
