The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.

C. S. Lewis and Ronald Knox were two of the most popular authors of Christian apologetics in the twentieth century ... and for many years they were neighbors in Oxford. In Second Friends, Milton Walsh delves into their writings and compares their views on a variety of compelling topics, such as the existence of God, the divinity of Christ, the problem of suffering, miracles, the way of Love, the role of religion in society, prayer, and more. They both bring to the conversation a passionate love of truth, clarity of thought, and a wonderful wit. Lewis and Knox both experienced powerful conversions to the Christian faith, an important aspect that Walsh covers in detail. Both wrote about their conversion experiences because they wanted to explain to others why they took that life-changing step. They each valued logical thinking, and they professed that the Christian faith should be embraced, not only because it is good, but because it is true. Reason provides the intellectual foundation of belief for both authors. For both these apologists, Christianity is much more than a doctrinal system: it is above all a personal relationship with Christ that entails romance, struggle, and loyalty. A common adjective applied to Lewis and Knox as writers was "imaginative". They saw lack of imagination as a great hurdle to faith, and they believed that imagination is a privileged path leading to a deeper apprehension of the truth. Lewis and Knox, while convinced that the Christian faith rested on sound reason and that it fulfilled the deepest human longings, also knew that God is a mystery--and so is the human heart. In the face of these twin mysteries, Milton Walsh shows that both men approached their evangelizing efforts in a spirit of humility, as he explores how they appealed to the mind, the heart, and the imagination in presenting the Christian faith.
Psalms Code II studies more years and reveals more codes hidden in the 3,000 year old scripture. The second book of the Psalms Code series, Psalms Code II is sub-titled "The Jesus Cycle". The hidden 1,900 year long incarnation cycle of Jesus is revealed to the public for the first time in human history!Jesus, "Immanuel" ["The Lord is with us"] is a man who died not! He had 22 lives in his pocket from the day he was born to Virgin Mary, and till the end of his 19 century-long incarnation cycle in year 1919 AD.He lived 22 separate lives in it. He started his journey as Jesus of Nazareth. In his sixth incarnation lived within the sixth century, he made himself known as Prophet Mohammed who established and founded Islam. In his 11th and middle [out of a total of 22] incarnation he was Yusuf Khas Hajib, the scribe or the author of Kutadgu Bilig. In his 19th incarnation, the world knew him with the name Rasputin. In his 20th incarnation, he was Lenin [the founder of Communism], in his 21st, we saw him as Royal Raymond Rife [the man who cured cancer] and finally, in his 22nd and final incarnation, he was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk [the Founder of the Turkish Republic].Parallel to the Christian Faith, Jesus was the LORD but only during his first and last incarnations -lives! When the Jews crucified Jesus on the cross 1,900 years ago, they were not aware of the fact that they were attempting to kill the LORD Himself! The LORD, without a doubt, is invincible as reported in various verses of the Bible. However, the first and the last incarnations of Jesus belonged to him! The reason why the Catholic Church [Vatican] and Islam distance themselves from the Jews is based on this simple fact: The Jews attempted to kill the LORD of Hosts! Their "Ultimate Sin" caused them a most fiery vengeance ever after!Both the Bible and the Koran report the same fact: The LORD is "The First" and "The Last", Alpha and Omega. The first and the last incarnations of Jesus were reserved for the LORD Himself! The LORD personally "lived" the first and the last incarnations of Jesus; in our case, He was Jesus Christ, the man who could heal the blind and raise the dead! In his 22nd incarnation, He was Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the "Father Turk" or the "Father of the Turks" during the last 19 years of his life.[Those who are prejudiced against Rasputin, Lenin or Ataturk should not come to conclusions before considering the evidence presented in the book.]A brand new 1,900 Jesus Cycle will start in year 2019 AD. As the "First" and the "Last", the LORD will live the very first life of the total 24 new lives due for Jesus once again.Just nine years from now, mankind will have a "twice in a 1,900 years" chance to witness the LORD manifested in human form! Whether He will reveal Himself as a prophet, as a national hero, a political leader is to be but awaited... Without a shadow of a doubt, the LORD is nigh... Very nigh, indeed.
