First published in , this classic four-volume work contains various Greek and Latin writings of religious or philosophic teachings ascribed to Hermes Trismegistus, with Walter Scott's extensive notes, commentary, and addenda. It is said that these teachings are records of private, intimate talks between a teacher and one or two of his disciples.   It is more than probable that the book will be regarded by a large section of the public as a romance of the wildest kind; for who has ever even heard of the Book of Dzyan? The writer, therefore, is fully prepared to take all the respon-sibility for what is contained in this work, and even to face the charge of having invented the whole of it.

Take, for example, An Idiom Book of New Testament Greek (Cambridge University Press, first edition ). What an impressive piece of linguistic scholarship! Or his compact commentary on The Epistles to the Colossians and Philemon in The Cambridge Greek Testament Commentary series—only pages but densely packed with insights into the Greek. Not Another Commentary! Do we need any more commentaries? I recently came across this comment at the opening of D. A. Carson’s review of J. Ramsey Michaels’s NICNT commentary on John. When my students ask if we really need yet another commentary on such-and-such a biblical book, I sometimes tell them that, even if we do not need another commentary, we can always do with more commentary.

  Reading Philosophy will appeal to both those beginning their study of philosophy at a university and those who want to engage with the subject on their own. Unlike introductory books which tell the reader about the subject, this one requires the reader to do philosophy. Its direct approach makes the book valuable both for students and for other readersReviews:   This site gives ebook links to various ebooks on Swami Vivekananda, Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, Vedanta, Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism, Self Development, Indian Culture, Philosophy, Religious Harmony published by Advaita Ashrama, Publication .
