While other "Bible" catalogs are available, this comprehensive reference book is destined to become the standard in the field. Chamberlin's one-volume work traces the publication history of multiple editions of "Bible" translations and offers valuable decriptive annotations. The catalog not only includes complete Bibles, but also Old and New Testaments, partial texts, commentaries that include translations, children's "Bibles," Apocryphal writings, and the "Koran," as well. Other bibliographies are usually limited to editions commonly found in academic libraries, but Chamberlin's guide also includes Bibles found in private collections. Overall, this catalogue contains more than five times as many entries of different English translations as two other "Bible" bibliographies, those by Hill and Herbert, combined. The entries are grouped in 151 categories, and within each category entries are listed in chronological order. The accompanying annotations identify the translator and provide an overview of the contents of each work. The detailed indexes make this bibliography a convenient tool for researchers. Bible scholars, collectors, and rare book dealers will find this catalogue a necessary addition to their libraries.

There isn't just one Bible: there are many sacred books to be found all over the globe that claim to be the word of God, that purport to offer the only true path to eternal life, and that name all disbelievers in them as infidels. But they can't all be right, and in this foundational work of modern atheism, American spiritualist KERSEY GRAVES (1813-1883) lays out, in clear, concise, often mocking terms, the basis for denying the divine inspiration of all of them. Discover. . seven obscure Oriental Bibles . the "infidels" Bible . the moral defects of the Ten Commandments . unfulfilled Bible prophecies . errors in Bible facts and figures . 277 Bible contradictions . heathen customs appropriated by God . the impossibility of a person God . and much more. This is essential reading for students of comparative mythology and modern freethinkers. Also available from Cosimo: Graves's The Biography of Satan and The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors
