The Bondage of the Will - A Modern English Abridgment By Martin Luther
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. The Bondage of the Will is considered by many to be Luther’s most important book, and it stands today as one of the great classics in Christian... More > history. He wrote in 1525 at the beginning of the Reformation in answer to a work by Erasmus, the classical scholar and humanist (1469-1536). Both Erasmus and Luther rejected many of the erroneous practices of the Roman Catholic church. But Luther went further to challenge the Roman teaching of salvation by works. Erasmus pleased the Pope by writing to uphold the Roman dogma of “free will,” that man could of himself decide to choose for his salvation. Luther saw correctly that the Biblical doctrines of the depravity of man and salvation by faith alone stand together. He declared Erasmus to be an enemy of the faith, and wrote The Bondage of the Will to establish this doctrine at the core of evangelicalism. The Modern English Series are modernized abridgments of great Christian classics, for a blessing to many worldwide.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Publishing in 1536, Achille Marozzo is one of the most important Italian fencing authors of the Renaissance, as well as a towering figure in what we call the “Bolognese style.” His book... More > Opera Nova was reprinted in the course of the 16th century and at the beginning of the next, as evidence of the popularity of his instruction. Experienced Renaissance swordsmanship instructor and professional translator Tom Leoni has tackled this complex project to offer the modern historical European martial artist (and historian) Marozzo’s text in fluent, readable English. Because of the complexity of the work, it will be offered one book at a time (total of five books). This first volume deals with the “queen” of Bolognese weapon-combinations, the sword and small buckler. Other volumes—sword and other companion weapons, two-handed sword, polearms, and advice on dueling (plus dagger grapples) are forthcoming.< Less
The Divorce of Catherine of Aragon By James Anthony Froude
eBook (ePub): $3.99
The Divorce of Catherine of Aragon, The Story as Told by the Imperial Ambassadors Resident at the Court of Henry VIII by James Anthony Froude. Catherine of Aragon (1485–1536) was Queen of... More > England (1509-1533) as the first wife of King Henry VIII and previously Princess of Wales as the wife of Prince Arthur. The mythic element cannot be eliminated out of history. Men who play leading parts on the world’s stage gather about them the admiration of friends and the animosity of disappointed rivals or political enemies. The atmosphere becomes charged with legends of what they have said or done—some inventions, some distortions of facts, but rarely or never accurate. Their outward acts, being public, cannot be absolutely misstated; their motives, being known only to themselves, are an open field for imagination; and as the disposition is to believe evil rather than good, the portraits drawn may vary indefinitely, according to the sympathies of the describer, but are seldom too favourable.< Less

An Apology to W. Tyndale By Edward Arber & George Joye
Paperback: $6.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
In 1526, William Tyndale produced the first printed English translation of the New Testament. One of his colleagues was George Joye who reprinted Tyndale's translation in 1531 with a few of his own... More > changes. For one, He disagreed with Tyndale's use of the word "resurrection" in several passages and replaced it with his own wording. These changes upset Tyndale and led to a sharp dispute between the two men. Tyndale and Joye both made strong accusations about the other which ultimately led Joye to pen this apology in 1534 which still defends his positions and still charges Tyndale with not making adequate edits to the translation. In 1536, William Tyndale was tried for heresy and put to death for translating the Bible into English. Although Tyndale and Joye disagreed sharply on a few translational decisions, they both stood up to free God's word and to make it available to the common people in their own language.< Less

Cabeza de Vaca gives us perhaps the most intriguing account of the inhabitants of the North American continent during the earliest contact with the Spanish. His report covers nine years, from 1527 -... More > 1536, and his route over the bays, rivers, marshes, prairies, woodlands and along major Indian trails may have spanned 6,000 miles or more. Through his account we learn that there were important cultural centers within our modern boundaries. Though Cabeza de Vaca himself did not visit them, he would later misrepresent the pueblos in the interior as places of great wealth. Within a few years of Cabeza de Vaca's arrival in Mexico City, Spaniards such as Francisco Vásquez de Coronado and Hernando de Soto would terrorize the interior lands. The conquest would be in full motion by 1540 and many indigenous populations would seek refuge from the Conquistadores in the new Christian mission settlements, where they hoped Dios (God) would save them from slave raiders and killers.< Less
