So declares the old bookseller as he shuffles into Charles's bookshop. He unloads what appear to be beat-up and worthless Bibles on the hapless Charles, proclaiming that certain people in the small town need the books desperately. He promises that when the passages printed in gold are read, the scriptures come to life. Among the six people to buy the Bibles are Theo Atwood, an agnostic mortician whose business is suddenly threatened by a new, believing undertaker; Lottie Mariah, a hairdresser with a dubious reputation who yearns for true friendship; Nancy Rutledge, a recent widow with a shameful secret; William Hicken, a greedy banker obsessed with counting and acquisition; Charles himself, whose generosity is deplored by his shrewish wife; and Dory, Charles's young assistant, who learns that the Bibles are accompanied by a dark and threatening adversary. the Golden Verses, a tale of good versus evil, is as old as time and as familiar as your face in the mirror.

And Other Pythagorean Fragments. "In this small volume an attempt has been made to gather together the best and most reliable of the sets of Ethical Verses attributed to the Pythagoreans." "Sorely is needed in life the strong pure teaching of the elder days, when learning was held to be richer than wealth, and simplicity finer than lavishness. None will truly profit by the book who merely reads it through; a sentence should be taken as a thought to 'sleep on, ' or as a note to which the day's work should be attuned, and, deeply meditated upon, should lead to the riches hidden beneath its words. Such use of the book will make it what it should be-a sign-post pointing the hidden way to wisdom, which is a treasure concealed." Contents: Golden Verses of Pythagoras, with Notes from the Commentaries of Hierocles; Golden Sentences of Democrates; Pythagorean Sentences of Demophilus; Similitudes of Demophilus, or the Remedy of Life; Pythagorean Ethical Sentences from Stob us; Select Sentences of Sextus, the Pythagorean; Pythagorean Sentences from the Protreptics of Iamblichus; Symbols of Pythagoras, with the Explanations of Iamblichus.

In this small volume an attempt has been made together the best and most reliable of the sets of Ethical Verses attributed to the Pythagoreans. Both Hall's translation from the Greek (1657), and Rowe's translation from the French of Andre Dacier (1707), have been used in reproducing the Golden Verses of Pythagoras, but Dacier's version has been almost exclusively followed, being clearer and more intelligible. The Golden Sentences of Democrates, the Similitudes of Demophilus, and Pythagorean Symbols are from Bridgman's translation, and are to be found in his little book, Translations from the Greek, published in 1804. The Pythagorean Sentences of Demophilus, translated by Taylor, are contained in that volume also. The remaining sets of verses, translated by Taylor, are appended by him to his Iamblichus' Life of Pythagoras, published in 1818.
