William E. Blackstone (1841-1935) would be the first to disclaim credit for any of his achievements. Blackstone wrote one of the most popular books on prophecy, simply entitled: Jesus Is Coming. Over 1 million copies have been printed since the book was first published, and it has been translated into at least 47 languages. Because of his humble nature, Blackstone would only use his initials W.E.B. as the author.

William Blackstone, Jesus Is Coming Again, n.d.

FWIW, I can't seem to get Chapter 15 Heading to behave.  If you can fix that, please let me know.5504.Jesus Is Coming Again Blackstone.docx

I found this docx to be filled with minor issues and have prepared a version where most have been fixed.  I'd like to send it to someone to review before posting.  Please e-mail me if you'd like to review and then post.  

Mostly what I did was remove an extra space after the chapter and before the :verse in every place (over a hundred) and removed many places where there were double/triple/more consecutive blank spaces.

I do not know your email address and would not suggest that you post it anyway.  Why not just upload it here.  I would be happy to take a look at it.

Thanks for the editing,   I had not checked the references.  I should get my cheat sheet out on PBB, it's prob been 2 years since I did one.

Here is the updated file. I'm sure it could use additional tagging and editing but this does have the updates so verses come out correctly.

Well I have made some changes in fonts, a few spelling errors and added a book cover.  When I first compiled it, there were errors stemming from the lines drawn after the chapter headings.  So I deleted them and now have no errors after compiling.  More formatting can be done to improve it some more.

When looking into my PB tool I found that I already have this - last built Feb 2013.

A quick look into https://wiki.logos.com/User_Contributed_Personal_Books  showed that Jerry M shared this here: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/38395/287279.aspx#287279 in 2011.

I haven't compared the two versions, but that wiki page is a treasure trove of PBs and should not be forgotten.

Thanks NB Mick.  A quick looks seems to show that this may be a better copy.  I will look more closely at it later

I also have the version that NB. Mick mentioned. When you say "this may be a better copy" which one are you referring to?

The older version may be better.  I am simply looking at the headings.  I have not done a very thorough check

I just did a check on both documents.  My opinion is that I like the newer document because there is more of a TOC breakdown than in the original document mentioned by NB Mick.  So I plan to stick with the document presented on this thread.  I think, however, either copy is good.  It really depends on someone's personal preference.

I hope that helps
