     Individual titles may not be available in all formats. In addition, Hebrew & Greek fonts and footnotes are often not displayed well by e-reader devices. Therefore, the fonts have been transliterated into English and the footnotes inserted into the text in a smaller font that is preceded by (“FN”), which can be read or skipped over. Also, there are no page numbers in the Table of Contents and Indices because the text is “re-flowable” (e.g., the pages change in an ebook as the font is enlarged or made smaller or is ‘reflowed’ to a smaller space).

Edward M. Goulburn

John William Burgon, A Biography: Volume I     

   TOP Publications believes this work will be valuable to some who may not be aware that it exists. This is a reprint of a book authored by Edward M. Goulburn, D.D., D.C.L. [In England a D.D. is an earned degree and a D.C.L. is A Doctor of Civil Law] Dean of Norwich in England, 1864, and it has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. We realize it will not be popular among some ministers of the Bible and Gospel because of its antiquity, but for those who take the time to read it, a reward lies ahead. Some marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this book - a reminder of this book’s long journey from the original publisher to a library and finally to you. As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and is revered by many.

      Dean Goulburn said: “Burgon was in this country the leading religious teacher of his time, who brought all the resources of genius and profound theological learning to rebut the encroachments of Rationalism, by maintaining inviolate the integrity of the written Word of God as the Church has received it; by pointing out its depth, its versatility of application, and absolute inexhaustibility of significance; and by insisting upon it paramount claims to the humble and reverent reception of mankind, as having been “given by Inspiration of God….”By faith we stand” spiritually, And the great object of faith,—the stay and support on which it assures itself in temptation and trial, —is the Word of God.”

John William Burgon, A Biography: Volume II     

   TOP Publications believes this work will be valuable to some who may not be aware that it exists. This is a reprint of a book about the Dean of the University of Chichester in England, 1864, and it has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. We realize it will not be popular among some ministers of the Bible and Gospel because of its antiquity, but for those who take the time to read it, a reward lies ahead. Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this book - a reminder of this book’s long journey from the original publisher to a library and finally to you. As many stray marks as possible were removed. Dean Burgon was one of the most successful defenders of the KJB and its underlying text, the Received Text (TR), and he is revered by many.

     The work is by Edward Meyrick Goulburn, D.D., D.C.L. (A D.D. is an earned degree in England and a D.C.L. is a Doctorate of Civil Law) Dean of Norwhich who said: “Burgon was in this country the leading religious teacher of his time, who brought all the resources of genius and profound theological learning to rebut the encroachments of Rationalism, by maintaining inviolate the integrity of the written Word of God as the Church has received it; by pointing out its depth, its versatility of application, and absolute inexhaustibility of significance; and by insisting upon it paramount claims to the humble and reverent reception of mankind, as having been “given by Inspiration of God….”By faith we stand” spiritually, And the great object of faith,—the stay and support on which it assures itself in temptation and trial, —is the Word of God.”

     Dean Goulburn, said: “…in studying Dean Burgon’s character and career, has found him to be in every way too large a man to be adequately portrayed on a very small canvass. While the name of person of less note, who yet may have established a claim to be gratefully remembered by those who come after them, are sufficiently preserved from oblivion by a Memoir, there are those, surely, whose intellectual and moral pre-eminence, and whose manifoldness of gift and power, challenge a life…His friends claim for Dean Burgon that, in regard of the variety and versatility of his intellectual powers, the intensity of his moral faculties, and that profound veneration for the Word of God which formed the chief feature both of his spiritual character and of his teaching, he showed a pre-eminence among the men of his generation, which abundantly entitles him to a Life as distinct from a Memoir. The outline of his character, not to be traced, will, it is hoped, serve to justify this claim.”

I. The first character, then, in which, when his name is mentioned, John William Burgon is thought of, is that of a theologian…

 II. But I must pass from his intellectual gifts to speak of the faculties of a more moral cast, in which he was equally versatile.” (pp. 341 349) (see pp 396 - 400 a calendar of the flood)

     The appendices alone are worth the cost of the book because they are Dean Burgon’s explanation of:

1. Excerpts from the Notes and Memoranda on Shakespeare

2. The Raising of Jairus’ Daughter, a Prophetic History

3. Calendar of the Flood

     Dean Burgon’s works such as “Revision Revised, are second to none for defending the “Traditional Text” upon which stands the King James Bible. Any criticism of his work is worthless if and when his comments are thoroughly understood. His biography is a testimony to his righteousness and virtue. It is no wonder that God chose this man to defend His Words against the apostate in this age.

      His other works include “The Pastoral Office,” “The Causes of Corruption of the Traditional Text, Vol 2,” “the Last Twelve Verses of Mark,” “Inspiration and Interpretation,” The Traditional Text,” “Revision Revised,” as well as many articles and sermons. He was Dean of Chichester and the religious leader of his age. Stray marks are a result of the antiquity of the work.
