> >How can i get a copy of Murdock Pershita?
> James Murdock Produced the first English translation of the Aramaic
> Peshitta New Testament in the late 1800's.
> Although Murdock did not to my knowledge claim that the Aramaic rather
> than the Greek was the original, it is an important reference book for
> any library.
> It has come to my attention that this book has been reprinted with
> what is called in the printing business a "perfect binding." 1,000
> copies were printed. The binding of this book does not seem to hold
> up well so you may have to eventually rebind it. For that reason they
> are being made available at a bargain price of $10.00 each.
> To obtain a copy just mail a check or money order made out to A.L.H.
> and mail it to:
> Marilyn Jarzembski
> PO Box 375
> Fayette, OH 43521
> If in the USA please add $3.20 for shipping.
> If ordering from outside the USA please try to include enough to cover
