The Fundamentals Volume 2 by Various ( - ).

The Fundamentals: A Testimony To The Truth (generally referred to simply as The Fundamentals) is a set of ninety essays published between 1910 and 1915 by the Testimony Publishing Company of Chicago. According to its foreword, the publication was designed to be "a new statement of the fundamentals of Christianity." However, its contents reflect a concern with certain theological innovations related to liberal Christianity, especially biblical higher criticism. It is widely considered to be the foundation of modern Christian fundamentalism. The essays were written by sixty-four different authors, representing most of the major Protestant Christian denominations. It was mailed free of charge to ministers, missionaries, professors of theology, YMCA and YWCA secretaries, Sunday school superintendents, and other Protestant religious workers in the United States and other English-speaking countries. Over three million volumes (250,000 sets) were sent out. ( Wikipedia)

I recorded volume 1 as a solo but it strikes me as a good candidate for a group project.
As with the first volume, can all the authors be added so that they are searchable? They are:
George Frederick Wright (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Frederick_Wright)
Melvin Grove Kyle (https://mla.bethelks.edu/mediawiki/index.php/Kyle,_Melvin_Grove_(1858-1933))
Franklin Johnson (http://photoarchive.lib.uchicago.edu/db.xqy?one=apf1-05265.xml)
Robert Anderson (https://librivox.org/author/13047)
Philip Mauro (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Mauro)
Handley Carr Glyn Moule (https://librivox.org/author/15353)

I'll PL this.

I suppose it is bad form to request a section before the MW is up, but, if you will allow it, I'd like to read the last chapter (Section 7, I presume.)
Not feeling well. I'll get back to work as soon as possible. My LibriVox: https://librivox.org/sections/readers/13278

ITD,

It has been assigned to you. It's quite an interesting complication. Please read p.126 as part of it, but not p.127 and don't forget to add the book ending. Thanks Kevin!

Tell me if you'd like me to add more of a pause between quotations.

Thanks MaryAnn. Sorry these semi-compilation ones are a hassle.
Before cataloguing, perhaps you could show me that clever trick you use which lets you link to volume 1 in the blurb of volume 2.

For the sake of completion in March (and because there is less interest in this volume than in volume 1), I will slowly record these myself (though people are welcome to jump in as ever) and try to get this finished before April.

Well, let me lighten the load a bit and record Section 5.
I've got quite a bit on my plate for March, but I'll do my best.

Assigned! I think it's an attractive section.
