Mountains in the Mist by Frank W. Boreham (1871 - 1959).

Frank Boreham was a well known preacher who served in England, Australia, and New Zealand. He published dozens of books and thousands of editorials during his lifetime, with no sign of slowing down, even up until his death at age 88. He wrote with a distinctive style, seeming to be able to draw a spiritual lesson out of any conceivable topic.<br><br>In this volume, Boreham invites us to view spiritual truths as we would look upon beautiful mountains in the distance, with a spirit of wonder and humility, rather than with meticulous reasoning and analysis. ( Devorah Allen)
Volunteers outside the USA: F.W. Boreham died in 1959. His work is still protected by copyright in places, like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, or Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1954).
  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.

It is technically launched, just doesn't have a MC yet. But you're free to look at the text and choose a section if you like, even though there's no MW yet.

I just noticed that somehow I had the wrong source text linked. It was a different Boreham book, and I don't even know where I grabbed the link from. :? :hmm: Weird. Anyway, I fixed it. I'm about to fill in the MW.

Ok, MW is filled in. I've entered Kevin's claim (thank you!) and a few of my own, and we are ready for Readers Wanted, unless you want to stay here a little while to try to snag a DPL. :D

Well, you know I love these Boreham books, so I'd be glad to serve as DPL again.
And, I'd like to take Sections 1 and 2, if I may.

I've added the link to the MW, listened, and marked this as PL OK.
