Chapters 10 through 15. Great readings!

I'm confused about the chapter titles, however. Not all correspond to what you read in the introduction. Would you help me to understand this, please?

Also, Chapter 13 has no close.

Our Checker program passes Chapter 15 with no warning, but Chapters 10 through 14 are said to have more background noise than might be desired. These are only warnings, however, and you may wish to ignore them. For myself, I think your recordings would benefit from another 'cleaning.' (Likely all of them could benefit.) Your readings are so good, it would be a delight to hear them really crisp.

So, if we ignore the confusion I have with chapter titles, only Chapter 13 requires a correction.

Chapter 5

Its volume is too low for the LV specifications. Would you please lift the volume by at least 4dB?

Kevin,

Thanks for joining on. I don't know what happened to section 5, all I can imagine is that I uploaded the wrong section. Here is the correct one: https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/rationaltheology_05_widtsoe_128kb.mp3

Time: 7:50

I will do each of them separately, just so I can keep it all straight. :shock:

Thanks again,

Wayne

Kevin,

Yes, somehow I really missed the "noise reduction". I don't think it was done, or I messed up and sent the uncorrected files. :oops:

As for the: "I'm confused about the chapter titles, however. Not all correspond to what you read in the introduction. Would you help me to understand this, please?", I don't really understand the question. Here is the source link: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/35562

I am just reading the text as it is written, as far as I can tell.

I'll get more out soon. I hope you enjoy and learn a little about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. :D

I'm learning lot already.

I'll be right back with something specific regarding the titles.

Chapter 11

You read "The course of the Gospel on Earth," but the title in the Magic Window reads "The Gods of this Earth." I think there was at least one other chapter with this anomaly.

P.S. In fact, it is at Chapter 11 where the discrepancy begins. You have read the title of Chapter 17 (according to the MW.) All that follow (12 through 15) are off by one chapter, so to speak.

I'll let you fish out what is specifically wrong. I suspect all you'll have to do is update the MW.

Don't apologize. You should hear about all the confusion I get up to!

I'll have a listen to the intros and, I expect, we'll be ready to go forward.

Okay! Chapters 10 through 15 PL OK!

For Chapter 13 you read "Man's communication with God," but the title in the MW reads "Man's communion with God." I'll let you decide what you want to do with this. Both seem similar enough.

All three PL OK!

17 could use another quick cleaning, but that's up to you.
