Every-Day Religion: The Common-Sense Teaching of the Bible
by Hannah Whitall Smith
Publisher: J. Nisbet and Co. 1894
The object of the book is to bring out the common-sense teaching of the Bible in regard to every-day religion. The author aimed not so much to get at the doctrinal truths of our religion, as at the every-day practical common-sense principles. How to live a Christ-like life in the midst of an un-Christ-like world; how to have inward peace in the midst of outward turmoil; how to see the hand of God in every-day matters, and how to accept the homely details of His will; how, in short, to apply the principles of our religion to our week-day lives as well as to our Sunday lives; -- this is the object of these Lessons.

This is a collection of New Testament Apocrypha, including many works which were admired by the early Christians, but which were later excluded from the canonical Bible. It includes accounts of the young Jesus, particularly the Gospel of Mary.
by Brian E Turner
This book is a story, not an academic treatise. The author has never been committed to a lifetime of study and involvement in Christianity and hence must be considered a dilettante in this field. This does give him the advantage of being objective.
