Helps to Holiness by Samuel Logan Brengle (1860 - 1936).

Samuel Logan Brengle was a commissioner in the Salvation Army. His books are known for the practicality, joyfulness and authenticity. His life was spent working with people on the streets, so his insights into the work of the Holy Spirit are relevant to everyday life. His holiness was that of the street, the kitchen, and everyday life. His stories are of men and women living their daily lives. This book is the first in his "Holiness" trilogy, explaining what Holiness is and how to get it. (Will be amended before cataloguing) (Summary by Beth Thomas)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!):
      https://archive.org/details/helpstoholiness_zip/
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

:hmm: the source isn't exactly a dated scan is it? And he didn't die till 1936, so we would be trusting that kindle got it right and used a pre-1923 edition? Think I need some more expert advice.

Sorry, I think I put the wrong link by mistake - I've now changed it to the one TriciaG approved on a previous thread: https://archive.org/download/HelpsToHoliness

(Thread is here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=69322&p=1516882&hilit=brengle+PD#p1516882)

As previously arranged, Patty will DPL for this project.

I can view the epub book, so I'll definitely read something here. I'll wait for the MW. :D

There seems to be a bit of confusion. I didn't green light this text source - I said I couldn't access the text on it. We'd need to find out what source was used for it.

Is there any sort of source information given in the epub?

Sorry, when you said "I think the Archive ones are OK to use" in direct response to my question "Are the Archive downloads OK to use?" I assumed that included this one, although several were mentioned. The Kindle format SixBooksByBrengle listed on the same thread seems to me clumsy to use, but I can if you prefer.

The epub has the 1896 original forward in it, no other dates are given that I can see. The metadata says it is open source, uploaded in 2010, for what that's worth.

Or there's this one which is declared by the library holding it to be PD, made from a PD copy from 1896: http://wesley.nnu.edu/wesleyctr/books/0301-0400/HDM0348.PDF

I didn't go with this one originally because it appears to be made from a CD scan, but I suppose a library declaration of OD is more reliable than Archive or Kindle?

If you get a “GO” for launch, PD-wise, I’d like to nominate for Chapter 6 - Fight The Good Fight of Faith please.

I'm sorry to say that we can't accept either of the links and no one I've talked with can find a clearly PD one. So it seems like there isn't a copy we can use on line .

Bummer! Well, I gave in and finally bought the 1912 copy I told you about. I should receive it in about a week or so, and then I will see what I can do.

Go Devorah!

Do you want to use this project template and have me BC and Patty DPL off your scan? Or shall we delete this project and you can start a new one?

I had really thought that one of the online versions would be acceptable - it's a book from 1896, but I guess first editions are hard to find!

This project can probably be moved to Book Suggestions while we work out the details.

I'm happy to let you BC and just provide the text. Or, I think one of our admins (can't remember who) said that I might be able to check my copy against one of the texts we have to see if it matches? But anyway, I'll let you know when the book arrives, and then we'll see what can be done. It will take some time, of course, to scan it, but I'm willing to do that if we need to.

I'm a sucker for old books anyway. I mean, not just books that were written a long time ago, but actual physical books that are a hundred years or more old. So it didn't take much convincing to get me to buy it, and the price wasn't bad. And anyway, it's for a good cause, right??? :wink: :lol:
