5 Harte, Houston In Our Image - Character Studies from the Old Testament
New York Oxford University Press 1949 Fourth Printing Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
Illustrated by Rowe, Guy

General edge wear and scuffing along edges and spine. Some scuffing and fading to boards. Owner's nameplate and name written inside cover. Some darkening. Pages are clean and attractive. Magazine page with 'A Christmas Message from Conrad N. Hilton' laid in.

Includes 32 stunning color portraits by Guy Rowe.
Houston Harte's goal: "To take the finest and most dramatic portions of the Bible and make them as attractive as the very best of modern literature-or even more attractive; to make so fine a book, from the reader-interest point of view, that even the casual Christian may turn to it with excitement. Once interest is aroused, the Biblical narratives may do the rest. . . .
"The illustrations in the volume are of tremendous importance; they had to be a good deal better than current Bible illustrations, with their poor art and accent on hell-fire and damnation, and a good deal more meaningful than classical illustrations.
Harte eventually persuaded Guy Rowe, a great character portraitist, who formerly did Time magazine covers, to undertake the project.; 12 - 15" Tall

New York Collier Books 1982 0020867409 / 9780020867401 Revised Edition; Fourteenth Printing Mass Market paperback Very Good- 

Spine slightly slanted, corners bumped, a little edge wear and rubbing, light tanning but text is clean and unmarked.

From the Editors' Preface to an earlier edition: "C. S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters is one of the great incongruities of modern literature: a moral tract which was also a sensational bestseller. Cast in the form of a one-way correspondence - the helpful letters of an otherworldly-wise demon to his nephew, an apprentice in the business - it has a rich and civilized wit. But the book is not exactly sidesplitting. Nor is it salacious. Nor shocking. Nor even novel. So why did over half a million Americans buy Screwtape when most people in the book publishing business would unhesitatingly have labeled it a most unlikely candidate to succeed? Any attempt at an answer must be regarded as highly tentative, a mere shadow of a hypothesis, one requiring a brief excursion into theology and the morality of modern times."

"Here is a testament of one woman's deep belief in God and His love - and all that she was able to accomplish as a result of this belief. At the time of the death of Peter Marshall, her minister husband, in 1949, Catherine Marshall was left seemingly without love, without strength, without financial resources. But one thing she had in abundance was faith, and ultimately that proved enough to fill all her needs. Her life and accomplishments since then have been so amazing that she can explain them only in terms of God's intervention. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

"This early biography, long out of print, of Meher Baba, was written by Charles B. Purdom and published in 1937 in London. The author used the information available to him at that time and it was the first biography concerning the Perfect Master to appear in the West. It treats in depth the period from 1911 to 1931, when Purdom first met Meher Baba on his initial visit to England, and continues with fascinating detail to the year 1936. This book is unique and its message has contemporary as well as historical value.
