A history of early Christian literature by Edgar J Goodspeed( Book )

46 editions published between 1942 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apocrypha by Edgar J Goodspeed( Book )

28 editions published between 1938 and 1989 in English and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Apocrypha consists of the books that are found in the Greek version of the Jewish Bible -- the Septuagint, the earliest complete version of the Bible we possess -- but that were not included in the final, canonical version of the Hebrew Bible. For this reason, they were called "Apocrypha," the hidden or secret books, and while they formed part of the original King James version of 1611, they are no longer included in modern Bibles. Yet they include such important works as The First Book of Maccabees, the Wisdom of Solomon, Ecclesiasticus, and the stories of Susanna, Tobit, and Judith, and other works of great importance for the history of the Jews in the period between the rebuilding of the Temple and the time of Jesus, and thus for the background of the New Testament. These works have also had a remarkable impact on writers and artists. Beyond this, they are often as powerful as anything in the canonical Bible. The translation into contemporary English is by Edgar J. Goodspeed. - Back cover

Homeric vocabularies : Greek and English word-lists for the study of Homer by William Bishop Owen( Book )

37 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An essential step in learning and using any language is the acquisition of a working vocabulary. Many methods have been devised to help with this acquisition, all of them stressing the fundamental importance of mastering the words most frequently used. The Owen and Goodspeed word-lists--in which Homeric terms are arranged according to frequency of usage, divided into categories according to parts of speech, and presented in an easy-to-use format--are particularly helpful. The word-lists are based in part upon Gehring's famed Index Homericus and are designed to help the student learn Homeric words in a systematic way, thereby marking the reading of Homer a rewarding and natural experience
