Not only are there two typos in the same sentence here, but both are equally hilarious! I had to share.

Bonus points if anyone can figure out what book this is.

This only works if you already own the resource. Since this book is not part of any collection or base package, I'm going to assume most people wont see any results. Smile

Of course I am not like "most people" - but it seems to have been on Daily Deal or something in February 2016, since I bought it for $7 back then.

I just did a whole library search on the word lather and came across lots of examples that should have been latter, later, father, Father, Luther... Very disappointing to (still) see this many OCR errors in my Logos library.

This is right up there with  " 'modem' in Puritan works" and "Ford Jesus" OCR-pos.

Ding, ding, ding, we have winners. KS4J and NB.Mick each get one million bonus points redeemable at all places that redeem ambiguous internet points. Stick out tongue

Here is the Logos link to the book: The Parousia: A Critical Inquiry into the New Testament Doctrine of Our Lord’s Second Coming by James Stuart Russell

James Stuart Russell's Wikipedia page has more info on the book if anyone cares to know: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Stuart_Russell

I'm reading it because R.C. Sproul gave it crazy high praise:

"Russell's book has forced me to take the events surrounding the destruction of Jerusalem far more seriously than before, to open my eyes to the radical significance of this event in redemptive history.  It vindicates the apostolic hope and prediction of our Lord's close-at-hand coming in judgment.  My view on these matters remains in transition, as I have spelled out in The Last Days According to JesusBut for me one thing is certain:  I can never read the New Testament again the same way I read it before reading The Parousia.  I hope better scholars than I will continue to analyze and evaluate the content of J. Stuart Russell's important work."
