I am hesitant to put this up, because I can't believe that FaithLife doesn't have it up since it has so many other Machen resource. I have done both a title and an author search & don't find this one.in the online catalog, so I'll put it up, but gladly take it down if someone can point to where Logos has it for sale. 

So, for now...here it is: 3021.Virgin Birth2.docx

Thanks Calvin, that's very much appreciated.

Although I must say, that taking your source file from the monergism guys made you inherit their bad quality in terms of footnotes and Greek text, which gives us bits like 

The Egyptian fragment (...) A notable difference from Luke is the omission of FL88Z:R® ¦< ("FJD\ in the promise of the angel. These words being omitted, Mary would naturally, in accordance with ancient usage, understand 6,P"D4JT:X<0, ,ß$D,H PVD4< B"D( Jå$ 2,å$ and JX>® LÊ`< to mean that she was already pregnant. Her question, therefore (appearing in the form B`2,< :@4 J@L$J@ (,[<ZF,J"4, ¦B, –<*D" @Û (4<fF6T],) becomes perfectly natural, whereas in the narrative of Luke, where the conception is put in the indefinite future, the question is meaningless.10 

(I don't blame you, but them! After all they have the resources to work on their heroes' books and don't care).

That's what happens when a PDF is converted without external fonts.  The source party should be notified.

Their PDF looks exactly the same. I think that's what happens when one uses OCR on a text to make a PDF and never looks at the result (and the OCR only capable of understanding English text and script)

Thank you, Calvin.  I greatly appreciate it.

Thank you, Calvin.  I greatly appreciate it.

Thanks saved me from taking my book apart- but I noticed that, that is assuming footnotes are not displaying. Are there footnotes?

Based on the resources found on the web including www.monergism.com/virgin-birth-christ-ebook - I have edited to reproduce an readable pdf file (but thought without footnotes and appendix) - soon uploaded on www.academia.edu<Machen's Virgin Birth of the Christ>.

Now unsolved problems: Those files -  Greek are not correctly encoded, which makes the Appendix incomprehensible. Appendix is not on the print book edition. Is there an original text somewhere so that I can edit on the Appendix as well?

It would be nice to have Machen's work put on as a Logos product. I mean but as a decent readable complete file.

BTW. virgin birth myth is a nice church product since 2nd 3rd AD; eventually becoming a pillar of Trinity and into a  full-fledged Catholic Mariology.

I have the edited file <Gresham Machen - The Virgin Birth of Christ> on http://tiny.cc/bostonreaders .You will see several attached files as well on the PDF.

If you have time, please download and check a new translation of the NT (IRENT) based on the linguistic and literary critical approach. Your comments are appreciated very much.
