Marvels of Divine Grace, The

By: Alice Lady Lovat

These are Alice Lady Lovat's meditations on the treatise Del Aprecio y Estima de la Divina Gracia, written by the prolific Roman Catholic theologian and mystic Juan Eusebio Nieremberg, S.J. (1595-1658). Nieremberg's treatise was published in 1638 in Madrid, where he taught Sacred Scripture at the Jesuit Colegio Imperial.

By: King James Version

2 Chronicles was purportedly written by Ezra the scribe. It expounds the history of King Solomon and the kings came after him. It is very similar to 1 and 2 Kings, but centers primarily on the Temple as the Presence of God among the people. It is a history of the Kings of Israel. (Summary by Sundiata)...

Bible (ASV) NT 10: Ephesians

By: American Standard Version

Described by William Barclay as the Queen of the Epistles, the Epistle to the Ephesians is one of the books of the Bible in the New Testament. Paul is traditionally said to have written the letter while he was in prison in Rome (around 63 A.D.). This would be about the same time as the Epistle to the Colossians (which in many points it resembles) and the Epistle to Philemon. (Summary from Wikipedia)...

Bible in Its Making, The

By: Mildred Duff ; Noel Hope

One great universal law runs through the realm of nature. Our Saviour gave it in a sentence: 'First the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.' It is with the desire to show that the same law rules in another of God's creations—The Bible—that this little volume has been prepared. The Bible has as literally 'grown' as has an oak tree; and probably there is no more likeness between the Bible as we know it to-day and its earliest beginning, than we find between the mighty tree, and the acorn from which it sprang. The subject is so vast that we have not attempted anything beyond the briefest outline. Our purpose has been merely to give some idea of the origin of the Bible books, up to the measure of our present light upon the subject, and also to show the purpose for which they were written. But if our readers, by seeing something of the wonder and glory of the Holy Scriptures, are able to catch a glimpse of the Creator's mind behind the whole, our work will not have been in vain.

Historia de la Sagrada Pasión sacada de los cuatro evangelios, Parte I

By: Padre Luis de la Palma

Luis de la Palma (Toledo 1560 - Madrid 1641) fue un jesuita español y uno de los grandes maestros espirituales del Siglo de oro a la altura de S. Ignacio de Loyola, S. Juan de ávila, Fray Luis de Granada, S. Juan de la Cruz y Santa Teresa de Jesús. Fue provincial de Toledo y predicador en el Colegio Imperial de Madrid, donde escribió la Historia de la Sagrada Pasión, publicada por indicación del prepósito general de la Compañía en 1624. Esta obra, no superada en su género, se basa en las narraciones evangélicas y tiene forma de meditaciones. Al poco tiempo de su publicación fue traducida a diferentes idiomas. Su censor, Cristóbal de Zamora, afirmó sobre él: Si como compuso sola la Pasión de Cristo, hubiere compuesto toda su vida, nos quitara el trabajo de estudiar en otros libros, porque el suyo sólo bastaría para tener la noticia entera y puntual de todo lo que Cristo obró y dijo, con tanta propiedad y tan elegante estilo que ninguno le hace ventaja y él la hace a muchos de los más aplaudidos que han escrito».
