  1. Dear Affirm team,
    I am a PhD student in England that needs to get hold of the following book: Murray J. Harris, The Resurrection of Jesus
    Issue 8 of Affirm booklet (Affirm Publications, 1967).

    It is obviously out of print and not available on amazon etc. Maybe an old Presbyterian minister connected to Affirm might be able to help? I’m willing to pay.

    Yours faithfully

    Ferdie Mulder

  2. Yes, the date (1967) was wrong but this is one of the AFFIRM booklets and this request was attended to at the time.

    Thanks,
    Peter
