2.0 out of 5 stars Problems with the book and PDF file, January 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As the book description indicates, this is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) production. And as such, it's far worse than most. In fact it's a complete mess, and is almost impossible to read. Many words are garbled; there are no apostrophes; the Latin and Greek footnotes come out as complete gibberish, and all footnotes are jammed together at the original page breaks; etc., etc. I gave up after 7 pages, before I went completely crazy. The book itself is practically worthless, and I threw mine away after ordering a true facsimile from another publisher.
The one saving feature of this purchase is that you get a free PDF download of the original book in facsimile. Be warned, however, that the PDF file is totally locked, so that there's absolutely NOTHING you can do as a researcher except read the text. You can't highlight text in your copy (such as yellow highlighting); you can't copy any text to be pasted elsewhere; etc. None of this, at least not in Adobe Reader X.
For these reasons, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this book. Too bad, because as reviewer #1 points out, this is an important work for anyone studying this important historical topic.

I suggest you read it online for free at http://openlibrary.org/works/OL7467904W/A_short_history_of_the_doctrine_of_the_Atonement where you can also get it in various formats, including pdf, Kindle and various other ebook formats, also for free. I've examined the PDF and found it very readable.
