    Re: Happy Birthday Spot

    I believe my response provided the information Kathy had requested. If you feel I was imprecise or overly vague I could expand the detail.

    The book titles, perhaps?

    Title: A History of the Methodist Church in Great Britain (complete 4 volume set)
    Author: Davies, Rupert; Rupp, Gordon & George, A. Raymond (eds.)

    and

    Richmond College 1843-1943: Forewords By Leslie F Church and Eric S Waterhouse
    Author: Cumbers, Frank H (Ed.)

    and the book I need to make notes from is The end of an epoch: Reflections on contemporary history by A. L Rowse.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Haven't thought of A.L. Rowse in so long. I used to love reading him.

    It's his published essays from the thirties, predominantly on politics. I'll post extracts here if you'd enjoy reading one or two.

    Sure. I was a fan of his historical works, though.
