"William Edward Biederwolf (September 29, 1867 – September 3, 1939) was an American Presbyterian evangelist...In his early years, at least, Biederwolf was not above using parades, athletic feats, and magic tricks to win over audiences. Also like his colleagues, Biederwolf gave sermons on "booze," motherhood, and purity (though, as was typical of the period, the latter was given to men only). Later Biederwolf winced at evangelists who had promotional photographs taken of themselves in ridiculous poses, admitting that although he himself had "been foolishly guilty with his brethren," he had "put away the things of a fool." While Biederwolf stressed the significance of the Holy Spirit in producing conversions, he also did not shy away from noting the importance of the evangelist’s "personal magnetism." "

18 Brinton, Howard H. (with An Introduction by Rufus M. Johnes) The Mystic Will Based on a Study of the Philosophy of Jacob Boehme

This book is in Near Fine condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. This copy has been signed and inscribed by the wife of author Howard Brinton on the front endpaper. "Like Howard, Anna pursued her scholarly work with great seriousness. With her highly disciplined mind and her love for art and antiquity. Anna was on her way to becoming a well respected Classics scholar at the age of only thirty. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on Maphaeus Vegius and his Thirteenth Book of the Aeneid. Vegius (1406-58) was an Italian Renaissance humanist, poet, and educator who revered Virgil and wrote a “final chapter” to the Aeneid recounting the conclusion of the hero’s life. Anna’s study of Maphaeus was published by Stanford University Press in 1930 on the 2000th anniversary of Virgil’s death and was reprinted in 2002.1 A recent reviewer noted: “As a piece of serious scholarship, [Anna Brinton’s] edition has been overtaken, but this is a classic work that still holds an important place in scholarship on the subject. ”" "Jakob Böhme (1575 – 17 November 1624) was a German Christian mystic and theologian. He was considered an original thinker by many of his contemporaries within the Lutheran tradition, and his first book, commonly known as Aurora, caused a great scandal. In contemporary English, his name may be spelled Jacob Boehme; in seventeenth-century England it was also spelled Behmen, approximating the contemporary English pronunciation of the German Böhme."
