    Reason and authority in religion (1890) by James Macbride Sterrett PDF book

To that event, the Church has ever pointed as…

    Traces of Greek philosophy and Roman law in the New Testament PDF book (1896) by Edward Hicks

    Traces of Greek philosophy and Roman law in the New Testament PDF book (1896) by Edward Hicks The title will show that the range of subjects is limited both in scope and time. The brief work treats only of two questions, and it relates to the Church history of the first century.
