    Looks like the Trinity Foundation has created yet another new book by merging two of Clark’s books. I suppose this has some merit, but it also makes it confusing and difficult to know how many books he wrote. It seems like if an author intended a book to stand alone then it shouldn’t be combined.

      Thanks for the thought. I did not even recognize that there is two books here. Good catch
