Harvey Cox in his book, The Future of Faith, used the word "hascent." It is not in oed.

"H" is just above "N" on a keyboard. Could he have meant "nascent?"

rabbi, to save us the trouble could you provide a link for those of us not so literate; meanwhile was he a smoker

edited referring the reader to "Something" link in post # 188364

...but if this will save you any trouble,

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&sourc...h&aq=f&oq=&aqi=

Incidentally for the techs amongst us, zm and tsu for instance, why didn't the first link automatically get processed

Forgive me though for having forgotten how one does that manually, i'm too old for major reform amongst the algorithms

this too shall pass
Here's the quote, as from the online copy at Amazon.com:

"During the first two and a half centuries of its life, the hascent Christian movement flourished despite periodic persecutions.." link

this certainly appears to be a typo, for nascent, no?

it appears (from the page source) that there are no link tags associated with that url.. as to *why there are no tags, I couldn't begin to guess -- I've noticed that happens with many of your posts, so it must be something you're doing.

No doubt you're quite right. Next time I'll try refreshing the address before I copy it to a post

Mine too and I am just as bewildered

..though I had assumed the url tags are part of the address but if not don't you suppose they should be

no. do this:
[ url=insert the url here]put whatever here (not the whole url, unless it's short)[/ url]

all of that without the spaces I snuck in there.
