Changes to “Sovereignty & Dominion”

On February 23, 2021, Dr. Gary North wrote a post on his website in which he released his books into Creative Commons 4.0. (His post about this is, strangely, only available to members of his website.) To honor this license, Axehead Press must provide a description of any changes we’ve made to Dr. North’s work. You can view a copy of the original work as it appeared when this Axehead Press edition was first produced here: volume 1, volume 2. The current official version of this book can be read here: volume 1, volume 2.

All Axehead Press editions seek to be rigorously faithful to the text produced by Dr. North, and nearly all of the changes to any of his books published by Axehead Press consist of very insignificant publishing house style changes.

Any of the changes below that end up being entered back into the official version available on Dr. North’s website will be removed from this changelog.

First Edition, June 2022

Axehead Press house style changes

  • Removed periods in A.D. and B.C. and ensured they were positioned correctly.
  • Shifted text set in all caps to all small caps.
  • Shifted the final period in block quotations of Scripture to before the parenthetical chapter and verse reference
  • All citation information to any book currently published (or planned forthcoming) from Axehead Press was updated to reflect that edition.
  • Numeric ranges were converted from elided ranges to full numerals; for example, 193–96 became 193–196. Additionally, all instances of p. or pp. preceding page numbers were removed.

Global changes throughout this title

  • Added a Scripture Index to the book.
  • Pronunciation of names in square brackets were removed.
  • Unnumbered lists were converted to bullet lists.
  • Any obvious typos were corrected.
  • Citation information for Wikipedia entries was completed.

Specific changes throughout this title

  • In the Preface, Section C, reference to “bold-faced subhead” was adjusted to “small-caps subhead” due to changed typesetting.
  • In the General Introduction, Section H, a reference to Deuteronomy’s ethics section was corrected to be chapters 5–26.
  • In the General Introduction, boldface type for emphasis was changed to italics.
  • In Chapter 22:C, vv. and v. were added to references to Psalm 89 for clarity.
  • In Chapter 22, footnote 23, the correct web citation was provided.
  • In Chapter 28, footnote 4, mathematical symbols were converted to words for clarity.
  • In Chapter 30, footnote 2, the reference footnote 4 in Chapter 28 was corrected.
  • In Appendix A:A:2, the multi-paragraph block quotation was corrected to a numbered list. Also, in point 1, the square brackets and reference to GN was removed, since such commentary by Dr. North is already throughout this list of six items with no square brackets.
  • In Appendix A:N:3, a duplicated, parenthetical citation was removed from within a piece of quoted material. Although the parenthetical citation was in the original quoted material, Dr. North had converted the other parenthetical citations to footnotes but had missed removing this parenthetical citation.
