Patrick’s James the Lord’s Brother – rough draft in HTML

Previously I posted on finding a PDF scan of William Patrick’s James the Lord’s Brother (Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 1906) on the Internet Archive (see previous post). The work is still available as a 35MB PDF, but I have done a rough scan and edit of the work into HTML (AVAILABLE HERE).

This is a very rough scan. I have not proofread it, and the formatting of verse references used in the original text did not scan well (as of now there is no dividing punctuation between all chapter and verse numbers). This draft has other formatting issues with italics, etc. So, be sure to check this scan against the PDF. Also, the Scripture and subject indexes are neither formatted nor proofread.

I’ve assigned “anchors” to all page numbers, so if you’re interested in citing a particular page in this document, just add # followed immediately by the page number in the document url. Example: will take you to pg. 98 (Ch. 5 on “The Epistle of James”).

Again, for the sake of any Luddites, here are a few links for obtaining a paper copy of Patrick’s work: Open WorldCat / Amazon / / Bookfinder

*After looking around a bit, I also found F. J. A. Hort’s Judaistic Christianity (London: Macmillan, 1894) on the internet archives. Perhaps I will be able to OCR scan this and make it available as well.

  1. hi,
    was just browsing looking for books by Robert Eisler. i had read, before xmas 2006, the book he had written early in the 20th century: The messiah jesus and john the baptist. i was looking for an actual copy of this work–i had borrowed through a library, and was impressed, wanting a copy of my own for reference.

    i am in the process of reading Robert Eiesenman’s “the new testament code: …etc…”. with his bibliography posted online, i haven’t used it as i would have a normal book. his grammar could be streamlined, and his text would benefit from giving blocks or paragraphs of the sources he is commenting upon. it would add to an organization that might make his work more widely accessible.

    as for the work of Eisler, i feel that his legacy as a scholar was unduly cut short by the second world war. to find many of his works out of print is a shame. reading eisenman, i do wonder often how much of an inspiration the former writer was to him.
    is there anywhere for me to find this information?
    thanks, i will visit again.

  2. I’m not familiar with Eisler’s work. I’m a bit more familiar with Eisenman, so I can’t comment on Eisenman’s dependence upon Eisler. As far as finding used and out of print books, make sure you check out and I use them often.
