Resource 1. BEZA, THEODORE (Revised and enlarded by Peter Hall)

The Harmony of Protestant Confessions Exhibiting the Faith of the Churches of Christ, Reformed After the Pure and Holy Doctrine of the Gospel, Throughout Europe

After 1579 (and some failed attempts at writing a common Protestant Confession), it was decided that it would be a safer plan to compile a Harmony, in which the Protestant Confessions already extant could be distributed under certain heads, and by which all parties involved might be called back to agreement and any appearance of variation that existed might be discussed and explained. The design was accordingly entrusted to Theodore Beza (Calvin's student and successor in Geneva), Daneau, and Salnar. Twelve major Confessions, beginning with Augsburg (1530) through to The Confession of Scotland (1560), are catalogued according to topics (loosely ordered along the general lines of the headings found in the Westminster Confession) in this unique and massive volume. The Westminster Confession (1647), The Synod of Dort (1619), The Thirty-nine Articles of the Church of England (1571), and the Irish Articles of 1615, have all been appended to this work, increasing its value and making it the most comprehensive compilation and topically indexed reference tool available to creedal Christians today! Over 700 pages.

Resource 2. ZANCHIUS, JEROM

The Doctrine of Absolute Predestination

Translated by Toplady at the age of nineteen and held from publication for some time, it was later requested by Dr. Gill that it be released to the public. After good circulation in North America and overseas, "John Wesley attempted to circulate a few mutilated extracts from the book, signed with the initials of Toplady's name. This forgery of Mr. Wesley caused Toplady to issue another edition, and this is the edition that we have reprinted," notes Atherton in the introduction. Furthermore, Atherton calls this "one of the best, if not the best book ever issued on Absolute Predestination." He also notes that "[i]n our day so-called Protestants not only deny and reject these truths, but very zealously support the popish theory of free-will. There is one thing all history testifies to, namely, that what the world calls Calvinism is the only doctrine that produces civil and religious liberty, pure and undefiled religion, national independence and prosperity, whilst all other systems produce superstition, worldliness and national decay, only to end in lawlessness, Bolshevism and destruction. It is forgotten that only the pure truth of God can make a nation great or save a sinner. To our Triune Covenant Lord be all the praise and glory." 170 pages.

Resource 3. FOXE, JOHN

Acts & Monuments or Foxe's Book of Martyrs (c. 1554; 8 volumes, 1843-49 edition)

"No book ever inflicted a wound so deep and incurable on the Romish system of superstition & bloody persecution... (it) was placed in... all churches and chapels throughout the kingdom, by order of Queen Elizabeth." (Smith, Select Memoirs [$US19.99 P; $US29.00 HP], p. 245). Contains much information not found in any of the liberally edited & severely shortened editions of this classic work which are in print today. Covering martyrs from the early church through to Foxe's day, it was one of the most influential books of the sixteenth century! It overflows with faith building testimony of the power of God to overcome the most cruel & barbarous acts of human depravity & demonic cruelty. 6890 pages. A very rare set, now back in print after 150 years!

Resource 4. BROWN, JOHN (of Wamphray)

The Life of Justification Opened (1695)

The title continues: "Or, a Treatise grounded upon Gal. 2.11. Wherein the Orthodox Doctrine of Justification by Faith, & Imputation of Christ's Righteousness, is clearly expounded, solidly confirmed, & learnedly vindicated from the various Objections of its Adversaries. Whereunto are subjoined some Arguments against Universal Redemption." In 1828 Dr. Burns wrote, "Mr. John Brown was unquestionably one of the most eminent divines Scotland has yet produced, as his numerous writings, still carefully sought after by solid and judicious Christians, fully envince" (Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 339). Regarding this book Dr. Walker noted, "By far our most thorough exposition and discussion of the doctrine it handles; and all the more to be prized because of the particular bearing it has on the new views which Baxter and others had begun to propagate, and which in some shape are ever returning upon ourselves" (Ibid., p. 341). Interestingly, Brown, in the preface, after warning against Arminianism "as the immediate way to introduce Popery" states, "Yea even those who were purer in appearance, pressing the moral duties and practical doctrine of piety (I mean the followers of that famous Minister Mr. Richard Baxter) did corrupt the true doctrine of justification, because they adopted universal grace and redemption." One of the best, if not the best, books ever written on the topic of justification! 563 pages.

Resource 5. BEZA, THEODORE

The Life of John Calvin

Beza was Calvin's friend, student and successor at Geneva. As an eye-witness to Calvin's conduct and an intimate friend, this work (of 100 pages), of necessity, retains a special quality that other treatments of Calvin's life will lack. Notwithstanding, the best modern treatment of Calvin's views and work is found in Carlos Eire's War Against the Idols: The Reformation of Worship from Erasmus to Calvin ($39.96).

Resource 6. RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

Letters of Samuel Rutherford

Spurgeon said, "What a wealth of spiritual ravishment we have here! Rutherford is beyond all praise of men. Like a strong-winged eagle he soars into the highest heaven and with unblenched eye he looks into the mystery of love divine." Continuing, he comments, "let the world know that Spurgeon held Rutherford's Letters to be the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of men... none penetrated further into the innermost heart of holy fellowship with Jesus. Whenever we think of him we compare him to Milton's Uriel, the angel that stood in the sun itself."

Richard Baxter commented, "Hold off the Bible, such a book as Mr. Rutherford's Letters, the world never saw the like."

And Cecil notes, "It is one of my classics. Were truth the beam, I have no doubt that if Homer, and Virgil, and Horace, and all that the world has agreed to idolize, were weighed against that book, they would be lighter than vanity. He is a real original" (Remains cited in Johnston's The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant).

Walker adds his voice to this chorus of praise calling these, "letters which, I may say, stand all alone in religious literature... So far as I know, they are the only letters two centuries old (i.e. when Walker wrote this--RB) which are still a practical reality in the religious life of Scotland, England, and America. And criticism cannot get rid of the fact that they continue to retain their hold of human hearts, -- that they have won a place for themselves besides such books as Augustine's Confessions or Thomas a Kempis." (Theologians..., p. 8).

The body of this publication is from the 1891 edition of S.R.'s Letters. It contains Andrew Bonar's sketch of Rutherford's life and biographical notices of his correspondence, as well as the full compliment of Rutherford's letters. Furthermore, to make this the most complete edition of Rutherford's Letters ever published, we have added:

1. Robert M'Ward's original (1664) "Preface To the Christian Reader," of 45 pages (taken from a 1783 edition of Rutherford's Letters, which is easier to read, being in more modern type).

2. Rutherford's "Testimony to the Covenanted Work of Reformation, between 1638 and 1649."

3. Rutherford's "Dying Words, containing several Advices to some Ministers and near Relations" -- which further corroborates the large body of other evidence (cf. George Gillespie's dying testimony at the end of his Works, volume 2, for example) testifying to those glorious truths (of covenanted faithfulness to Christ and separation from malignants) that were foremost in the minds of the most prominent Covenanters, even moments before they eternally entered the presence of their Almighty Father.

4. A postscript from earlier editions of this work (thought to be written by M'Ward).

All the above sections, which we have added, have been left out of many former editions of Rutherford's Letters -- including the Banner of Truth hardcover that was in print a couple of years ago. This is the first time, to our knowledge, that these valuable additions (which were at various times published together with these letters) and the full edition of Ruthrford's Letters have all been gathered into one publication.

The importance of M'Ward's original preface can be seen when we consider who he was and the part he played in Rutherford's life and the Reformation of his day. M'Ward was a persecuted and exiled Protester (exiled for preaching, in 1661, "against the overturning of the Covenanted Reformation by Parliament," -- Dictionary of Scottish Church History & Theology, p. 538), who "collected and arranged the papers of his preceptor, Samuel Rutherford, and gave the world his (Rutherford's--RB) Letters." The Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology (pp. 537-38) further notes that McWard "studied at St. Andrews where he was a favorite of Samuel Rutherford" and that "when Rutherford went to London as a Commissioner to the Westminster Assembly, McWard accompanied his as an amanuensis... was a zealous Protester... in 1661 he preached against an overturning of the Covenanted Reformation by Parliament, entering a protest in heaven that he desired to be free from the guilt thereof. He was imprisoned 'for sedition and treasonable preaching... he helped with the editing and publication of Rutherford's Examen Arminianismi (Utrecht, 1668)... wrote several tracts to encourage resistance to those whom he believed were usurpers of power in the Church of Scotland. He asserted that is was not, as then constituted, 'of the genus Church at all, -- that, by its mere physical force-raid on the real Church of Scotland, it has proved itself to be absolutely devoid of ecclesiastical rights.' ... such publications rendered McWard, with his close friend John Brown of Wamphray (who was also taught by Rutherford--RB), odious to the regime of Charles II, and diligent efforts were made to have him expelled from Holland... He continued zealous against the Indulgences, opposing the efforts of Robert Fleming, his successor, at conciliation (see Earnest Contendings for the Faith)... Wodrow characterized him as 'a person of great knowledge, zeal, learning, and remarkable ministerial abilities.'"

The original publication of Rutherford's Letters came just three years after Rutherford's death. M'Ward hoped to strengthen the hands of the persecuted Covenanters with the publication of his preface and the release of Rutherford's Letters. In his preface M'Ward sets forth the context (and theological genius) of not only S.R.'s letters, but also of the turbulent times that drew forth some of the greatest theological literature ever produced. Among these works we find the Westminster Standards, the "Solemn League and Covenant" and a large body of other Presbyterian/Covenanter/Puritan writings that have been handed down to posterity, from these very days. These men knew (as M'Ward demonstrates in his preface to Rutherford's Letters) that the covenanted cause of Christ would prosper, though it was suffering a great setback at this time. Additionally, though these covenanted Presbyterians were blessed with towering and sanctified intellectual abilities, they were no ivy tower theologians; each, to a man (almost), were more than willing to suffer and/or die for the covenanted cause of Christ. M'Ward's preface is an invaluable aid to understanding these men and their times. Furthermore, this is the only place that you can obtain a copy of this exceedingly rare and valuable piece of testimony to the covenanted Reformation, as our "rare bound photocopy editions" are the first reprintings of this preface in many years.

Additionally, it is very interesting to note that when these letters were first published in 1664 (note the date, just shortly after the great ejection), the book was titled Joshua Redivivus (i.e. revived--RB) or Mr. Rutherford's Letters Divided into Two Parts. The First, Containing those Which were Written from Aberdeen, Where He was Confined by a Sentence of the High Commission, Drawn Forth Against Him, Partly on the Account of His Declining them, Partly Upon the Account of His Non-conformity. The Second, Containing, Some Which were Written from Anworth, Before He was by the Prelates Persecution Thrust from His Ministry; and Others Upon Diverse Occasions Afterward from St. Andrews, London, etc. Now Published, for the Use of All the People of God; But More Particularly, for Those Who Now Are, or Afterward May Be Put to Suffering for Christ and His Cause; By a Well Wisher (Robert M'Ward--RB) to the Work of the People of God. These Scriptures followed the full title to further stress the point of this publication: "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me" (John 16:2-3); and "And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia" (1 Thes. 1:6-7).

These letters were put out by Covenanters, for Covenanters, in defense of the Covenanted Reformation -- to strengthen the hands of the suffering covenanted servants (and martyrs) of Christ. M'Ward, who was banished to Holland (where he co-ministered with John Brown of Wamphray), specifically notes in his preface that his purpose in publishing the first edition of Rutherford's Letters (1664) was to bring comfort and encouragement to those 2000 ministers recently ejected for faithfulness to the Solemn League and Covenant. This was to be accomplished by setting forth Rutherford's example of faithfulness, courage and zeal, as seen throughout these letters, under similar circumstances of suffering. This book was also intended to minister to the myriads of faithful Covenanters who were at that time experiencing increasingly violent persecution and opposition.

Moreover, as Andrew Bonar notes in his prefatory "Sketch of Samuel Rutherford" (included in this edition) These letters will ever be precious to:

1. All who are sensible of their own, and the Church's decay and corruptions.

2. All who delight in the Surety's imputed righteousness.

3. All who rejoice in the Gospel of free grace.

4. All who seek to grow in holiness.

5. All afflicted persons.

6. All who love the Person of Christ.

7. All who love that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and Saviour.

Another Rutherford masterpiece, not to be missed! 828 pages. Enjoy the feast!

Resource 7. WYLIE, JAMES A.

The Papacy: Its History, Dogmas, Genius, and Prospects (1889 edition)

In its day, this book, of 572 pages, won the Evangelical Alliance first prize for an essay on Popery. "With all we have read of Popery, we have yet met with nothing in the English language which we regard to be so complete in itself, and so overwhelmingly destructive to Romanism," noted the Evangelical magazine. (Evangelical magazines of Wylie's day obviously knew who their enemies were then; there are few that recognize this today. Some, in our day, even teach that a return to Rome is advisable, thinking that an alliance with idolaters will help free the land of social evils. In reality this will only serve as a further provocation against "the Holy one of Israel," bringing more curses, wrath and guilt upon our land.). Wylie's book combines the qualities of clear structure, vigorous logic, and eloquent style and yet is written with an absence of unchristian passion and prejudice -- making its argument all the more useful to those trapped in Rome's web of deceit (or those seeking a fair and comprehensive treatment of this massive topic). It is also indexed. When this book first appeared in German, the Papists were careful to give it the "silent treatment," lest an inquiring Papist should hear of it and be inclined to read it. These same Romanists (later) also invoked the civil power against it, so fearful were they of its contents.

Resource 8. GILLESPIE, GEORGE

A Dispute Against the English Popish Ceremonies Obtruded on the Church of Scotland (1637, reprinted from the 1660 edition)

George Gillespie was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly, the youngest member there, and undoubtedly one of the most influential. William Hetherington observes "The effect produced by this singularly able work may be conjectured from the fact that within a few months of its publication, a proclamation was issued by the Privy Council, at the instigation of the Bishops, commanding that all copies of the book that could be found be called in and burned by the hangman. Such was the only answer that all the learned Scottish Prelates could give to a treatise written by a youth who was only in his twenty-fifth year when it appeared" ("Memoir," from the Works of George Gillespie, p. xviii.). James Bannerman notes, "This was Gillespie's first work, and it may be truly said to have settled the controversy which called it forth, so far as argument was concerned. No answer to it was ever attempted by the Prelatic party; and no answer was possible. It displays singular acuteness, learning, and force of reasoning; and the thoroughness of the discussion is as remarkable as the power with which it is conducted" (The Church of Christ, vol. 2., p. 435). Possibly the best uninspired book ever written on biblical worship, an extensive and thorough masterpiece that leaves no stone unturned. For advanced study.

Resource 9. BARROW, GREG (on behalf of the Session of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton)

A Reformation Discussion of Extraordinary Predictive Prophecy Subsequent to the Closing of the Canon of Scripture (1998)

"The following document is a response to questions raised by Mike Wagner (a member of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton or PRCE) regarding the position of the PRCE on the subject of extraordinary predictive prophecy subsequent to the closing of the canon of Scripture. This is not intended to be an exhaustive treatment of the subject, but simply a response to specific questions asked. Though this was not initially intended for public distribution, we have received requests that it be made available to a wider audience. It is hoped that this summary of our position will aid the Church of Christ by encouraging further study of this difficult subject" (Introductory paragraph).

This book (of 28 pages) clearly demonstrates that many major Reformers (and even the early church fathers) were not strict cessationists, nor were they "Charismatics." It shows how extraordinary predictive prophecy was practiced during both Reformations and how the Reformers justified this from Scripture. Proof for this continuing practice (and the parameters laid out in Scripture) is provided from the teaching and practice of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland (from the Second Book of Discipline), John Knox, Samuel Rutherford, George Gillespie, James Durham, David Steele, John Calvin, Martin Luther, Thomas Goodwin, Justin Martyr and a host of others. Notice, for example, the following comment by George Gillespie,

I must say it, to the glory of God, there were in the church of Scotland, both in the time of our first reformation, and after the reformation, such extraordinary men as were more than ordinary pastors and teachers, even holy prophets receiving extraordinary revelations from God, and foretelling diverse strange and remarkable things, which did accordingly come to pass punctually, to the great admiration of all who knew the particulars. Such were Mr. Wishart the martyr, Mr. Knox the reformer, also Mr. John Welsh, Mr. John Davidson, Mr. Robert Bruce, Mr. Alexander Simpson, Mr. Fergusson, and others. It were too long to make a narrative here of all such particulars, and there are so many of them stupendous, that to give instance in some few, might seem to derogate from the rest, but if God give me opportunity, I shall think it worth the while to make a collection of these things (George Gillespie, "Miscellany Questions," in The Works of George Gillespie Vol. 2, Chapter 5, section 7, p. 30).

The following eight questions are answered herein:

Question #1 - What is the difference between the theological position on prophecy (extra biblical revelation) of the above mentioned men of God and the present day charismatics?

Question #2 - What is the explicit Scriptural teaching that underlies and justifies what those men of God did? Why should I believe that extra-biblical revelation can still occur?

Question #3 - Is the cessationist position basically correct with extraordinary exceptions, or is the cessationist position a theological error that should be repudiated?

Question #4 - Is it permissible for church officers to receive extra-biblical revelation that will guide them in the direction of church affairs?

Question #5 - Is it permissible for members of our congregations to claim to receive extra-biblical communications from God about future events and to claim to be prophets?

Question #6 - How would someone know that he has received extra-biblical communication from God rather than having simply deceived himself?

Question #7 - How would I know that someone claiming to get extra-biblical revelations from God is actually getting such revelations from God?

Question #8 - What is the difference between mysticism and genuine spiritual experience?

Resource 10. KNOX, JOHN

Against an Anabaptist: In Defense of Predestination

Curt Daniel calls this "Knox's major theological work." Moreover, he states that this is "more than a short answer (to the Anabaptist--RB, 468 pages), it is a complete exposition and defence of the Reformed doctrine at the height of the Scottish Reformation" which helped "guide early Presbyterianism and build the theological bridge between Edinburgh and Geneva." Furthrermore, Walker writes: "Very far from being a mere iconoclast, he (Knox) was also a great teacher of his country men... the long and elaborate treatise on Predestination, in which the doctrines of grace and of divine sovereignty are so vigorously, yet upon the whole so wisely, asserted and maintained -- gives Knox a high place among theologians" (Theology and Theologians of Scotland). This work was much esteemed by Knox's Puritan friends in England and "Calderwood, in summing up Knox's character, remarks: 'How profound he was in divinity, that work of his upon Predestination may give evidence" (Laing. ed., p. 17). Furthermore, Laing beautifully sets the context of this work, writing, "At the Period of the Reformation, there prevailed among Christians of all denominations the general belief, 'that the salvation of man depends on the free grace of God. But they differed on the question, whether the divine decree which has reference to this point is unconditional, or depends on the conduct of man, whether it is general or particular... Thus it happened, that Roman Catholics, Arminians, and most of all Socinians endeavoured, in the sense of Pelagianism, or Semi-pelagianism, to reconcile the divine decrees with human liberty. On the other hand, both Lutherans and Calvinists, following the example of Augustine, rejected the notion of the freedom of the will, and denied every co-operation on the part of man. Nevertheless it is a striking fact, that the Lutherans avoided the strict consequences of the Augustinian system, and asserted that the decrees of God are conditional, while the Calvinists not only admitted the necessity of those consequences, but having once determined the idea of Predestination, went so far as to maintain that the fall of man itself was predestinated by God, (Supralapsarianism)." Quoting freely from Calvin, his major influence in this work, Knox lays low the heresy that man plays any part in his own salvation. This heresy, of man's pretended ability to save himself (in any way), is at the root of all defection from the sovereign God of Scripture and is rampant today! As Kevin Reed notes, in refuting this Anabaptist, Knox unequivocally states, "For with the Pelagians and papists, you have become teachers of free will, and defenders of your own justice," clearly recognizing that, "the defence of man's free will, to do good and avoid evil," is "the damned heresy of Pelagius." Moreover, regarding this work, Reed continues, "A perceptive reading of this dispute will reveal the parallels between the Anabaptists and modern proponents of free will. Advocates for free will are commonly found among Baptists, "evangelicals," Charismatics, and cultists. Their line of argumentation is virtually identical to that of Knox's opponent" (John Knox the Forgotten Reformer, forthcoming, pp. 219-20). This book contains significant information for defeating the forces of antichrist today; for he (especially ecclesiastical antichrist) continues to manifest the same spirit of error seen in the days of Knox -- deceiving men into thinking that they, in some way (be it ever so small), are able to save themselves.

Calvin's Selected Works (7 Volumes)

These remarkable volumes contain Calvin's tracts and letters. They clearly exhibit why Calvin was one of the great saints (who defended the regulative principle of worship) and why his work was singularly blessed of God. Understanding these works will shed much light on our current situation; for many in the professed Christian community live in as great (or greater) darkness today than those who were contemporaries of Calvin. This set contains such classics as "The Necessity of Reforming the Church," "The Catechism of the Church of Geneva," "An Antidote Against Trent," "The Sinfulness of Outward Conformity to Romish Rites" and much more. Calvin's only letter to Luther, his letters to Knox, Bullinger, Beza and a host of other Reformers, along with Beza's 100 page Life of Calvin are also all included. Indexed, 3507 pages.

Covenant Theology and Its Implications (1998)

An easy-to-understand introduction to the basics of covenant theology. Explains what covenant theology is, while adducing a number of practical and theological implications which must follow when this view of Scripture is adopted. Shows how covenant theology is (and was) foundational to all true Reformation. Refutes Dispensationalism. Includes overviews (with Scripture proofs) of the covenant of Redemption, the covenant of Works and the covenant of Grace. In short, Price proclaims the classic Reformed position on covenants (and the implications of covenant theology) as it has been declared in the best Reformed Confessions (e.g. The Westminster Confession of Faith) and in books like The Marrow of Modern Divinity (by Fisher and Boston), The Covenant of Life Opened (by Samuel Rutherford), The Ark of the Covenant Opened and The Ark of the Testament Opened by Patrick Gillespie and The Life of Justification Opened (by John Brown of Wamphray). This is the best single tape sermon on covenant theology that we have knowledge of.

First and Second Books of Discipline

"Knox and five others drafted the Book of Discipline (1560), which set forth a blueprint for the ideal Christian society," notes the Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith. "The Book of Discipline was used in conjunction with Calvin's Catechism ($19.98 bound photocopy; $29.00 Hardcover photocopy) and the book of order previously used by the English congregation in Geneva," writes Reed (John Knox the Forgotten Reformer, p. 7).This version includes Calderwood's fiery preface to the 1621 edition. The First Book contains an extensive treatment of church polity reflecting principles pertaining to this formative period concerning the Scottish church. Another prominent feature of the First Book is its visionary program for Christian education. Furthermore, it "asserted the authority of Scripture, and it demonstrates that the regulative principle of worship is merely a natural application of the sola scriptura rule of Protestant theology" (Ibid., p. 76). The second book, often called the "Magna Carta of Presbyterianism," focuses more specifically on matters of polity relating to an established and reformed church, laying out the key tenets of Presbyterian government. It also gives attention to the doctrine of the civil magistrate. Both books prefigure the Westminster Standards in many respects, as well as exhibiting the genius of Scottish Presbyterianism (as noted in the helpful Publisher's Introduction by Kevin Reed). Contains contemporary spelling, punctuation and grammar. 176 pages.

David Laing, ed. (three large volumes, 1841 ed.). Baillie was one of the Scottish delegates to the Westminster Assembly and these volumes cover the period from 1637 to 1662 -- some of the most momentous days in the history of the Reformed faith. These letters contain an intimate insider's look at these days of international religious drama, national covenants, and the writing of the greatest religious Confession ever given to men, the Westminster Confession of Faith ($US19.98 hardcover; $US14.98 softcover). A major source for 17th century Church history and a totally unique compilation -- peering into the very heart of Reformation! "Baillie was a keen Resolutioner, but lived to see his mistake. To this he refers in the last of his Letters, 'We are in the most hard taking we have seen at any time. It is the matter of my daily grief, and I think it has brought all my trouble on me, and I fear it shall do me more harm.' The work is of immense historical value" (Johnston, The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 312). Cunningham is also cited by Johnston regarding this work, "His Letter and Journals furnish us with some pictures, as lifelike as photographs, of the principal actors then on the stage of affairs, and not unfrequently gives us a peep of what was passing behind the scenes. It is the book of all others to be read by those who would understand the period of the Covenant." About 1700 pages.

The Book of the Universal Kirk of Scotland

Contains the earliest official records (acts and proceedings) of the Established Reformed Church in Scotland, covering the period from 1560 to 1616. Peterkin calls them "the only sure and satisfactory memorials of the course of Ecclesiastical affairs in the times immediately succeeding the Reformation." Lee, Clerk of the General Assembly in 1828 writes (regarding the originals), "there is no difficulty in proving that the volumes in question were laid on the table of the General Assembly which met at Glasgow in 1638; and that they were pronounced by that Assembly to be true and authentic Registers of the Kirk of Scotland." Concerning this copy of "The Booke" ("for the first time fully printed from the copies in the Advocates' Library"), Lee further states that these records exhibit, "the real character of the internal government of this national church. They display the operation of the principles by which the first Reformers and their immediate successors were actuated. They demonstrate that these men were not more distinguished by zeal for the truth, than by loyalty to the head of the government, attachment to true principles, (I do not say of toleration--for that was a term which they certainly did not employ or approve--of religious liberty and civil subordination. They bear testimony to the strictness and impartiality of ancient discipline. They vindicate the character of those illustrious men whose names have been unjustly aspersed, but who, both by their doctrine and lives,--by their unwearied exertions and their patient sufferings,--left an example, not indeed or faultless excellence, but assuredly of the most noble, magnanimous, and fearless adherence to the standards of our constitution. These Registers also contain much that is capable of correcting erroneous representations of historical facts with regard to the internal state of the kingdom -- institutions, habits, and customs, as well as the morals of the people, and the spirit which was most prevalent at particular periods in various districts of the land... they prove, that from the very first moment, it was the determined object of the leaders of the Reformation, to establish such a Presbyterian Government, as was at last, with the utmost difficulty completed... they deserve to be preserved with care, as the most venerable remnants of a distant age--as the earliest annuls of our infant church... of confessors and martyrs, who counted not their lives dear to them; and who when they thought it necessary, never shrunk from sealing their testimony with their blood... (they) present the seal and superscription of glory to God, and good will to man--peace to the church, and happiness to the state" (pp. xi-xii). John Knox, the first name listed in the first record of the first General Assembly (in 1560), of course, plays a prominent role in much of what is recorded here. 631 pages.

Resource 17. THE PSALMS OF DAVID IN METRE (i.e. the Scottish Metrical Psalter of 1650): Allowed By the Authority of the Kirk of Scotland, and of Several Branches of the Presbyterian Church in the United States. With Notes, Exhibiting the Connection, Explaining the Sense, and for Directing and Animating the Devotion (1844 edition published by Robert Carter [New York]) John Brown of Haddington (annotations).

Psalter by Francis Rouse, the Westminster Divines, and the Scottish General Assembly (from 1646-1650)

This is the Psalter (less Brown's notes, which were added later) mandated, approved and used (for public and private worship) by the Westminster Assembly and all those who covenanted to uphold the Biblical Reformation that these Divines proclaimed. The text of the Scottish Metrical Psalms was authorized by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1650. The notes added by Brown are suitable for explaining the Psalm before singing and are a great aid to understanding and worship (whether public, family or private). Every song leader (especially fathers for family worship) should have a copy of this edition of the Scottish Psalter with Brown's notes. If money is a factor, the smaller, inexpensive hardcover, containing just the Psalms (see below) should suffice for other members of the family--or the father (or other song leaders) can simply line out the Psalms (as Moses, David, the Apostles, etc. did). All the Psalms, excepting one, are rendered into common metre (with some alternate versions added) and thus can be sung by even those with almost no knowledge of music. For example, the tune to "Amazing Grace" is one of the many tunes that fits with all common metre renderings. And even Psalm 136, the one Psalm not in common metre, can be sung to any common metre tune, as it adds only one extra syllable to the end of every second line. Maybe not the delight of the accomplished musician, but certainly calculated to make the Psalms easily accessible to young and old alike (an attainment surely pleasing to the Lord Jesus Christ) -- as this Psalter was purposely produced to foster international (and covenanted) Reformation. The Scottish Metrical Psalter is a faithful translation and without a doubt remains the best Psalter in existence today. We have added (at no extra cost to our customers) a copy of the Westminster Shorter Catechism to this printing. This has been done to assist parents in catechizing their children during family worship. Also included in this edition (from the original publisher) is "A Table of the Psalms Classed Under Several Subject Heads" and an "Alphabetical Index of the First Line of Each Stanza." These sections comprise 48 pages of small print alone, while the complete book (not including the Shorter Catechism we've added) is made up of 424 pages. This is a primary source document of Reformation; not to be missed by those serious about the Reformed faith -- and worshipping God in spirit and in truth. There are few things in life as pleasing and enjoyable as communing with Christ through the singing of His Psalms!

The Rise and Fall of the Papacy (1848)

"Originally published in 1701. The first of these discourses has been the most celebrated. It arrested public notice, and awakened the interest of Europe. After laying down the principle upon which the author conceived the Apocalypse should be interpreted, he explained the pouring out of the fourth vial with reference to Anti-Christian France, fixing 1794 as the date of the expiration of the vial. When the French Revolution took place it was then remembered that it had been so predicted by a forgotten Scottish pastor. The work was reprinted both in England and America, translated into different languages, and once more fell out of sight till the revolution of 1848 led to a fresh perusal. Referring to Italy, the author wrote: 'The Fifth vial, which is to be poured out upon the seat of the Beast will probably begin about 1794 and expire about the year 1848.' The downfall of the Papacy, according to Fleming, is going on; the Mohammedan Antichrist will follow, and about A.D. 2000 (Jewish reckoning, about 2017 on the Julian calendar--RB), the millennial epoch will begin. In that memorable year (1848) the Pope was compelled to become a fugitive from Rome; and it was certainly a striking coincidence" (Johnston, The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, 371). "A reprint," wrote The Patriot, "of one of the most remarkable and sagacious works extant on the subject of unfulfilled prophecy, deserving a perusal as a succinct, learned, and eminently devout exposition of the Apocalypse." Reprinted without abridgement from the 1701 edition. 143 pages.

I John 5:10-13 (#24) Assurance: How To Be Certain of Your Salvation (1998)

This is the best sermon we have ever heard on the doctrine of assurance. It contrasts Papist blasphemy and Arminian heresy on this point (from some of their official documents) with the biblical position of the Reformation (citing the classic landmark statements on assurance from the Westminster Confession of Faith). It lays out the clear Scriptural provisions that God has made for every Christian to enjoy the full assurance of faith, and thus enjoy close communion with Christ throughout their earthly sojourn. Besides being a great encouragement to believers, this tape can also be used as a helpful evangelistic tool.

Resource 20. WESTMINSTER DIVINES & OTHER PURITANS (Gouge, Gataker, et al.)

The Westminster Annotations and Commentary on the Whole Bible

(6 volumes, 1657)

The original title read: "Annotations Upon all the Books of the Old and New Testament: This Third, above the First and Second, Edition so enlarged, As they make an entire Commentary on the Sacred Scriptures: The like never before published in English. Wherein the Text is Explained, Doubts Resolved, Scripture Parallel'd, and Various Readings observed; By the Labour of certain Learned Divines thereunto appointed, and therein employed, As is expressed in the Preface." The preface (found in the first volume) recounts not only a short history of the English Bible, but sets forth the great advantage to true Religion which accrues (contrary to the mysticism of the Anabaptists and the anti-intellectualism of the modern backsliding church) when faithful notes are "bound in" with the Scripture text -- this bringing forth nothing different than the effect generated (through God's grace) by faithful preaching, faithful commentaries, faithful creeds, faithful covenants, faithful confessions, etc. Pointing out that this blessing from God was never more obvious than in the case of the Geneva Bible ($159.95, leather hardcover) and its marginal notes (and that the people knew it to be so when they were left with Bibles without annotations honoring to God), the preface further states, "hence were divers of the Stationers and Printers of London induced (by the people--RB) to petition the committee of the Honourable House of Commons, for licence to print the Geneva notes upon the Bible, or that some notes might be fitted to the new translation: which was accordingly granted, with an order for review and correction of those of the Geneva edition, by leaving out such of them as there was cause to dislike, by clearing those that were doubtful, and by supplying such as were defective. For which purpose letters were directed to some of us from the Chair of the Committee for Religion (in 1648--RB), and personal invitations to others, to undertake and divide the task among us, and so cometh in our part, whereof we shall give the world a true and just account in that which followeth." The detailed account which follows in the preface is fascinating, mentioning, among many other things, the divines' "use of... the Dutch Bibles... set forth at... Holland, by order of the States."

The diligence given, the energy expended, the obvious humility, and the fearful trembling before God's Word which is evident in these commentators makes this truly a classic Puritan work -- a work of great value! Just knowing, as Barker points out, that this commentary was "prepared mostly by Westminster divines, by order of Parliament, at the time of the Assembly" (Puritan Profiles, p. 37), certainly bodes well for the level of scholarship it contains. Moreover, with Gouge, one of the most respected English Covenanters at the Assembly playing a major role, the thoughtful student of Scripture and history ought to take note: for a theological feast of mature Puritan thought surely awaits those that sup at this table. Esteemed, by the mid-1640's, "as the father of the London Ministers," Gouge was elected as Assessor for the Westminster Assembly on Nov. 25, 1647. His detractors sometimes called him an "arch Puritan" (cf. Ibid., p. 35). Dr. Gouge's "share of the useful work consisted of Kings, and the subsequent books down to Esther, inclusive" (Smith, Select Memoirs of English and Scottish Divines, p. 534). Most of the others chosen to this work had similar credentials, though not all exhibit equal proficiency and some later backslid from attainments reached at this point. Nevertheless, when the commentators were first chosen, these Annotations were produced by some of the most qualified English Puritans -- as a historical high water mark for Puritan scholarship was beginning to crest. Furthermore, in prosecuting this work the divines note, "therefore we have put ourselves to much more pains (for many months) in consulting with many more authors, in several languages, than at first we thought of, that (for the propriety of the original text, for pertinent and profitable variety of versions, for consonancy of parallel Scriptures, and for perspicuity in clearing of the darkest places) we might bring in such observations, as might not only serve to edify the ordinary reader, but might likewise gratify our brethren of the ministry, at least such among them, as have not the means to purchase, or leisure to pursue, so many books, as (by order of the Committee) we were furnished with all, for the finishing of the work, committed to our hands" (preface). As the work wore on, however, it became apparent that the original intention (of printing these annotations as marginal notes in the Bible) would no longer fit the scope and length of commentary that had been produced. Thus, the notes were not added to the Scriptures directly, but rather published as a separate commentary (which we are offering here) -- except that we have divided the work into six volumes rather than the original two, because of logistics.

Brook calls this a "useful work" and says of its authors that "several of them were celebrated puritans" (Lives of the Puritans, vol. 3, p. 221n). Spurgeon comments that it "contains valuable remarks" and that "the work is probably less esteemed than it should be" (Commenting and Commentaries). In "A Narrative of His Life and Death" prefixed to volume one of Gouge's three volume commentary on Hebrews ($99.00 HP, $59.99 P), we also find this note, "He was likewise chosen by a Committee of Parliament, among others, to make Annotations upon the Bible, being well-known to be a judicious interpreter of Scripture. How well he hath performed his trust is evident to all that read the annotations from the beginning of the first book of Kings unto Job, which was his part." Furthermore, Neal, in his history, furnishes us with a helpful (though partial) list of each of the specific authors and books of the Bible they worked on in the Annotations. He writes, "Those with asterisks were not of the assembly. Rev. Mr. Ley, subdean of Chester (The commentary on the five books of Moses), Dr. Gouge (1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther), *Mr. Meric Casaubon (The Psalms), Mr Francis Taylor (Proverbs), Dr. Reynolds (Ecclesiastes), *Mr Smallwood, recommended by archbishop Usher (Solomon's Song), Mr. Gataker (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations), *Mr. Pemberton in the first edition and *Bishop Richardson in the second (Ezekiel, Daniel, and the smaller Prophets), Mr. Ley (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), Dr. D. Featly... (St. Paul's Epistles). There were two other persons concerned in this work, who might probably have the other parts of Scripture allotted them, not here mentioned, viz. Mr. Downham and Mr. Reading" (pp. 504-505).

Additionally, as should be evident, the Annotations were not, strictly speaking, a work of the Westminster Assembly per se, but rather a work primarily by men who attended the Westminster Assembly -- including a few others chosen to this task by Parliament. Notwithstanding, we thought it prudent to title this work in accord with one of the primary names by which it has come to be commonly known (i.e "The Westminster Annotations"). As with much of the literature that was produced by those attending the Westminster Assembly, or by those sympathetic to their work, the modern reader has much to gain by carefully considering the words of these spiritual giants. This work is no exception and we pray that this newly published edition will strengthen and unite the church, turn individuals to righteousness, uplift the family, and help direct the nations to the covenanting love that surrounded the work at the Westminster Assembly in the seventeenth century -- and in all this bring glory to God! 2383 (8.5" X 11") pages.

Resource 21. WALKER, PATRICK

Six Saints of the Covenant (2 volumes, 1901)

Covers the lives of Peden, Semple, Welwood, Cameron, Cargill and Smith. These two volumes are edited with illustrative documents, introduction, notes, and a glossary by David Hay Fleming. Walker's advantage in writing of these men, as Hay Fleming points out, can be seen in "that he lived in the times of which he wrote, that he personally knew many of the Covenanters and martyrs of whom he wrote, and that he was himself a shrewd observer and was endowed with a tenacious memory." Walker himself had endured imprisonment and torture for the Covenanted cause of Christ and Burton writes that his "unadorned descriptions of suffering and heroism convey a lesson to the heart which no genius or learning could strengthen." 629 pages, indexed.

Resource 22. REFORMED PRESBYTERY

A Short Vindication of our Covenanted Reformation (1879)

Until the church comes to terms with what is written in this book it will remain weak and divided. Covenant breakers will not prosper, as this rare item demonstrates from both Scripture and history. The power packed ordinance of covenanting, (the National and Solemn League and Covenant in particular), was foundational to the second Reformation and the work of the Westminster Assembly. "By the National Covenant our fathers laid Popery prostrate. By the Solemn League and Covenant they were successful in resisting prelatic encroachments and civil tyranny. By it they were enabled to achieve the Second Reformation... They were setting up landmarks by which the location and limits of the city of God will be known at the dawn of the millennial day... How can they be said to go forth by the footsteps of the flock, who have declined from the attainments, renounced the covenants and contradicted the testimony of 'the cloud of witnesses....All the schisms (separations) that disfigure the body mystical of Christ... are the legitimate consequences of the abandonment of reformation attainments, the violation of covenant engagements." If you are interested in knowing how to recognize a faithful church (or state), when and why to separate from unfaithful institutions, who has held up the standard of covenanted Reformation attainments and who has backslidden (and why), what it means to subscribe to the Westminster Confession (and why most that say they do so today do not have any idea of what that means), and much more concerning individual, family, church and civil duties, this is one of the best books you will ever lay your hands on. It chronicles "some instances of worldly conformity and mark(s) some steps of defection from our 'covenanted unity and uniformity,' "noting how "it is necessary to take a retrospect of our history for many years; for we did not all at once reach our present condition of sinful ignorance and manifold apostasy." Presbyterian and the Reformed churches lay under the heavy hand of God's judgement in our day, because of the very defections noted throughout this fine work. "We heard (hear) from various quarters the cry, 'maintain the truth, stand up for the principles of the Second Reformation;' and yet many of those who are the most loud in uttering this cry, appear desirous to bury in oblivion those imperishable national and ecclesiastical deeds, by which the church and kingdom of Scotland became 'married to the Lord.'" Are we married to the Lord, or have we thrown off the covenants of our forefathers; are we the chaste bride of Christ, or a harlot who is found in the bedchambers of every devilish suitor (whether ecclesiastical or civil) who tempts us with the favors of this world? Let us cry out, as with "the noble Marquis of Argyle, upon the scaffold," when he said, "God hath tied us by covenants to religion and reformation. These that were then unborn are yet engaged, and it passeth the power of all the magistrates under heaven to absolve them from the oath of God. They deceive themselves, and it may be, would deceive others, who think otherwise." Not for the weak of heart. 50 pages.

Resource 23. BUSHELL, MICHAEL

The Songs of Zion: A Contemporary Case for Exclusive Psalmody

Contains one of the best explanations of the Scriptural law of worship (also known as the regulative principle of worship) in print today. For this and a number of other reasons this is one of the most significant books published this century concerning worship! Furthermore, it demonstrates and defends (from Scripture, history and the creeds) the Reformation practice of exclusive Psalmody. It dovetails splendidly with Eire's celebrated War Against the Idols, setting forth foundational principles that lay at the very heart of Reformation thought, theology and practice. For as Bushell points out, "Purity of worship and uniformity of worship go hand in hand because they are both founded upon the assumption that the Scriptures contain clear, sufficient and authoritative directions as to the proper way of worshiping God. The diversity of worship practice that we see in our churches arises ultimately from a denial of this assumption, and it constitutes, therefore, a denial of a central aspect of the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture. There is much more at stake, then, in this whole discussion than the mere observance or non-observance of a few external rites" (2nd edition, 1993, p. 3). If you are a Calvinist and have not read this book, you are missing a real treat!

Resource 24. BAIRD, HENRY

History of the Rise of the Huguenots of France (2 volumes, 1886, 1895)

Volume one covers the period from the beginning of the French Reformation to the Edict of January, 1562. Volume two takes in the period from the battle of Coutras to the death of Henry the Fourth (1610). The author notes that "the period of about half a century with which these volumes are concerned may properly be regarded as the formative age of the Huguenots in France. It included the first planting of the reformed doctrines, and the steady growth of the Reformation in spite of obloquy and persecution, whether exercised under the forms of law or vented in lawless violence. It was the gathering and the regular organization of the reformed communities, as well as their consolidation into one of the most orderly and zealous churches of the Protestant family." The author has made use of manuscripts "previously known to few scholars -- if at all." 1127 pages, including an extensive 26 page index covering both volumes.

Resource 25. MANTON, THOMAS

The Complete Works of Thomas Manton

(22 Volumes)

Manton was "one of the most eminent of the Nonconformist divines." He was born in 1620 and died in 1677. He was chosen to write "The Epistle to the Reader: Especially Heads of Families" of the famous Westminster standards. "Received episcopal institution in 1661. Resigned in 1662, on account of the Act of Uniformity (which among other wicked, Satanic enactments, its principal terms required a "declaration of 'unfeigned assent and consent' to everything contained in the Book of Common Prayer, re-ordination for those not episcopally ordained" and, most evil of all, "a renunciation of the Solemn League and Covenant. Knowing that the Puritans would not submit to such terms, the Authorities framed the Act to secure their expulsion" cf. Sermons of the Great Ejection by Iain Murray [Banner of Truth, reprinted 1962]). He was a man of great learning and extensive reading, of a sound judgement, and had the art of reducing volumes of divinity into a narrow compass. According to Charnock, he was the best collector of sense of the age. Dr. Bates says , 'A clear judgement, rich fancy, strong memory, and happy elocution, met in him, and were excellently improved by diligent study'" (James Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, 1854, pp. 1953-1954). Includes Manton's better known volumes, such as his commentary on James and Jude and his Sermons on Psalm 119, as well as a host of other practical preaching, teaching and Scriptural exposition. The 22nd volume contains two large indices (by subject and text). A full list of everything included in this massive set is at: http://www.swrb.com/catalog/M.htm.

Resource 26. BARROW, GREG

The Covenanted Reformation Defended (1998)

Unsurpassed on points related to the Lord's supper and covenanting (as set forth by the best Reformers and best Reformed churches). Especially strong on citations from Calvin and the Westminster Assembly. Deals with many foundational aspects of the Covenanted Reformation (which gave us the Westminster Standards and the Solemn League and Covenant) from numerous original source documents (from the Westminster Assembly's advice to the English Parliament on the Lord's Supper to the official records of Calvin's Covenanting in Geneva). Comprehensive and compelling, this is a shocking (and sometimes advanced) look at what really took place during both the first and second Reformations -- with extensive quotations from the writings of the major Reformers (not just quotes from what others have written about them). It conclusively and irrefutably demonstrates that those churches which today call themselves Presbyterian (and even many which claim a more general Reformed heritage) have seriously departed from the Scriptural standards, principles and worship of these previous Spirit-led Reformations. It is written in an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand format and is an unsurpassed work that should not be missed by anyone interested in real Reformation in our day. This is without a doubt the best book to read if you want to understand what it means to be a Covenanter and to walk in the blood-stained footsteps of the witnessing church (Christ's Covenanted and Reformed  flock) (Song 1:8)! 318 pages, 8.5" X 11".

Resource 27. THE ENGLISH HEXAPLA

EXHIBITING THE SIX IMPORTANT ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, WICLIF, TYNDALE, CRANMER, GENEVAN, ANGLO-RHEMISH, AUTHORIZED OR KING JAMES VERSION (1841)

"Hexapla," of course, means "six-fold" or "six-columned" As the section of this book explaining the "Plan of the English Hexapla" notes, "the term 'Hexapla' was originally applied to the work executed by Origen in the 3rd century; in which the first column contained the Hebrew Text of the Old Testament; the second, the Hebrew text in Greek letters; the third, Aquila's Greek version; the fourth, the translation of Symmachus; the fifth, the LXX version (i.e. the Septuagint--RB); the sixth, Theodotion's version." The English Hexapla offered here contains the six English translations noted in the title, arranged side by side for easy comparison and reference. Dates for each version used are as follows: Wiclif (1380), Tyndal (1534), Cranmer (1539), Geneva (1557), Rheims (1582), King James Version (1611). Of special interest may be the Geneva 1557 version (from a copy of the first edition), as both Geneva Bible's presently in print contain later versions (1599 and 1602) of this text. It should also be noted that the notes to the Geneva Bible are not included in the English Hexapla, just the text. The 1611 edition of the KJV will also be of value to those who would like to compare it with the more modern version of this translation. "The notation of the verses has been inserted in all the translations, for convenience of reference... In illustration of the utility of the comparison of the various translations, much that is interesting might be advanced, but which the use of the volume will at once afford. The varied, although ordinarily equivalent manner in which the different translators render the same phrase, often throws much light upon the exact meaning; and when the versions vary in sense, the enquiry suggested with reference to the Original cannot fail to afford profit while it interests" ("Plan of the English Hexapla," pp. 161-162). Additionally this English Hexapla also includes "The original Greek text after Scholz with the various readings of the Textus Receptus and the principal Constantinopolitan and Alexanderine manuscripts, and a complete collation of Scholz's text with Griesbach's edition of 1805... The Greek text has been placed in the upper part of each page, for the purpose of facilitating the comparison of the versions with the Original, so desirable when they vary in rendering any passage." This is all preceeded by a detailed and annotated 160 page historical account of the English translations.

Resource 28. KNOX, JOHN

The Works of John Knox

(6 volumes)

Here is a chance to touch the flame that ignited whole nations for covenanted Reformation. John Knox is considered by many to have been the most biblically consistent and thoroughgoing of all the great Reformers of the sixteenth century. "John Knox was in fact the embodiment of the Scottish Reformation as its preacher, theologian, liturgist, historian, and catalyst for reform." (Hall and Hall, ed. Paradigms in Polity: Classic Readings in Reformed and Presbyterian Church Government [Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1994], p. 219)."With this concern for purity of worship," notes Kevin Reed regarding Knox, "it is no wonder that the Scottish Reformation was the most thorough among any of the Protestant nations." (From the introduction to John Knox, True and False Worship: A Vindication of the Doctrine that the Sacrifice of the Mass is Idolatry [Dallas, TX: Presbyterian Heritage Publications, 1550 reprinted 1994], p.14.). "I know not," states George Smeaton, "if ever so much piety and genius were lodged in such a frail and weak body. Certain I am, that it will be difficult to find one in whom the gifts of the Holy Spirit shone so bright to the comfort of the church." (Cited in Thomas M'Crie, The Life of John Knox [1831], p. 272.) The Works of John Knox listed here is the complete six volume set collected by David Laing, 1895. Concerning this 6 volume collection, Kyle, in The Mind of John Knox (p. 14) notes, "The only real basis for a study of Knox's thought must be the writings of the reformer himself. From 1846 to 1864, David Laing collected and edited nearly all of Knox's extant writings. This remarkable collection, which scholars regard highly, is indispensable for any serious study of John Knox." Contains much that is related to worship questions and the blessings that God pours out upon Churches that keep the second commandment -- as well as the curses that follow those who reject the regulative principle of worhsip.

KNOX, JOHN

Vol. 1 - Unedited History of the Reformation in Scotland (Book 1 & 2) and 18 appendices.

Reid, in his Trumpeter of God, notes that Knox "wrote history as a prophet" and that, wherever he could, he used original sources, many of which he reproduced. Furthermore, he proclaims that this "is still a work that no one interested in this area can afford to neglect." As W.C. Dickinson has commented, "it is his monument, for in it he puts flesh and blood on the whole Reformation movement." Innes (John Knox, p. 45) says of this work, "[t]he author who has enabled us to see his own confused and changing age under 'the broad clear light of that wonderful book' the History of the Reformation in Scotland, and who outside that book was the utterer of many an armed and winged word which pursues and smites us to this day, must have been born with nothing less than genius -- genius to observe, to narrate, and to judge. Even had he written as a mere recluse and critic, looking out upon his world from a monk's cell or from the corner of a housetop, the vividness, the tenderness, the sarcasm and the humour would still have been there." Moreover, Burton writes, "[t]here certainly is in the English language no other parallel to it in clearness, vigour, and picturesqueness with which it renders the history of a stirring period" (cited in Innes, John Knox, p. 45). This photocopy edition far surpasses the edited down version that is available in paperback. Over 600 pages of stirring Reformation history.

KNOX, JOHN

Vol. 2 - Unedited History of the Reformation in Scotland (Book 3, 4 and 5) and six appendices, index, etc.

"Knox portrayed the origins and development of a movement and not a mere chronology of events... Knox based his arguments on original sources and he often cited the documents in full. When Knox's History is compared to the contemporary vernacular narratives of Bishop Leslie and Sir James Melville, the superiority of Knox's work becomes evident. For the most part, these writers were preoccupied with petty details and had no conception of the momentous issues that hung on the events they recorded... Knox used history to demonstrate his single-track philosophy. And his philosophy said: 'The hearts of men, their thoughts, and their actions are but in the hands of God.' Lee said Knox's History was a sermon without an audience, a preaching book, one long inflammatory speech in behalf of God's truth as the reformer saw it." (Kyle, The Mind of John Knox, p. 13). Our editions of volumes one and two of Knox's Works contain the only full, unedited version of Knox's massive History of the Reformation in Scotland available today.
