Free digital book: St Paul from the Trenches

While in the trenches at the Front, surrounded by mud and horror, former academic-turned-soldier Gerald Warre Cornish began his own translation of St Paul’s letters.

He was killed in battle in 1916. But his work survives him. Here you can download his incomplete translation, taken from the mud-spattered copybook that he kept with him.
