PRICE, GREG

Blasting the Devil's Lies About Sex and Marriage ($1.99, cassette sermon) The teaching and application of the seventh commandment, "Thou shalt not commit adultery;" set forth as only a modern day Puritan minister can. Trumpets God's covenant curses against the many forms of sexual deviancy; such as homosexuality, adultery, and pornography (including print or screen depictions). Shows how modern man has sown to the wind ("free" sex and "safe" sex) and is now reaping the whirlwind of the so-called sexual revolution, in a crop of disease, divorce and societal destruction. Moreover, Price does not leave matters with the obvious outward violations of this commandment, but makes application in accord with the words of Christ, "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matt. 5:28). He also upholds lawful vows and oaths and magnifies covenant responsibility in marriage; outlining the major duties for both husbands and wives which are required by Scripture in order to please the Lord in the marriage bond. Touches on women's dress; demonstrates how dating leads to divorce (while upholding biblical courtship); shows why God's word makes adultery a capital crime (punishable by the lawful magistrate) and much more. One of our most practical and searching sermons, most (or all) of this message applies to everyone in some way.

ADAMS, JAY

The Meaning and Mode of Baptism
Some of the propositions set forth in chapter 28 of the Westminster Confession of Faith (Of Baptism) are as follows: "III. Dipping of the person into the water is not necessary; but baptism is rightly administered by pouring or sprinkling water upon the person. IV. Not only those that do actually profess faith in and obedience unto Christ, but also the infants of one or both believing parents are to be baptized. V. Although it be a great sin to contemn or neglect this ordinance, yet grace and salvation are not so inseparably annexed unto it as that no person can be regenerated or saved without it, or that all that are baptized are undoubtedly regenerated. VI. The efficacy of baptism is not tied to that moment of time wherein it is administered; yet, notwithstanding, by the right use of this ordinance the grace promised is not only offered, but really exhibited and conferred by the Holy Ghost, to such (whether of age or infants) as that grace belongeth unto, according to the counsel of God's own will, in his appointed time. VII. The sacrament of Baptism is but once to be administered to any person." In this book Adams defends these positions in an easy to read and incisive manner. This is without a doubt the best short book on this topic, as it deals with all the major arguments concerning both the meaning and the mode of baptism. It has been priced for the widest possible distribution.

This Puritan author writes, "My business is not to discuss the entity of relations in their foundation and terms, which the philosopher is conversant about; but to discourse (on) the efficacy of the chiefest in Christian practice; that is, to inquire into the nature and management of those reciprocal offices betwixt parents and children, which if well discharged according to the sense of the divine oracles, do contribute most to the happiness of human society, and give reputation to the communion of saints." And that "their children may continue, and their seed shall be established before" them (Psalm 102:28).

ASSOCIATE PRESBYTERIAN MAGAZINE

The Ancient and Modern Mode of Singing the Psalms (Sept., 1863)
Historically demonstrates how the Old Testament saints, the early New Testament Christians and almost all Presbyterians (after adopting the Westminster Standards) sang the Psalms by "lining them out" (e.g. see the Westminster Directory for Public Worship). Musical instruments, a Papal innovation, were also unheard of among faithful Reformers and "denominated the ensigns of Baal." Basically a blast against "all the refined idolatries of the churches" of the author's time. It also lays out the numerous advantages of lining out the Psalms and shows how "things in themselves indifferent, or even commendable, become unlawful when they have been made instruments of dishonour to God or peculiar temptations to men."

AMERICAN PORTRAIT FILMS

Fingerprints of Creation
Scientist Robert Gentry has discovered that granites contain beautiful microscopic coloration halos produced by the radioactive decay of primordial polonium. According to every basic principle of evolutionary theory, these halos shouldn't be there. Polonium radiohalos indicate that the earth was formed instantly and thus totally refute evolutionary theory. Furthermore this very evidence, though published in notable scientific journals and used as testimony in courts of law, has yet to be challenged by any evolutionist. The remarkable story of the discovery of this "finger print of creation" is told here. 34 minutes. This is a companion video which can be effectively used together with The Young Age of the Earth Video below.

Hells Bells: The Dangers of Rock 'n' Roll
A shocking expose of the message and medium that has mesmerized whole generations. This is an incredibly intense biblical look at one of the major forces in our culture today. "When modes of music change, the fundamental laws of the state change with them," stated Plato. The degenerate communist dictator Vladimir Lenin noted the potential power for evil in music, when he said, "One quick way to destroy a society is through its music." Moreover, for Christians, music is an extremely important expression of faith and worship, as we note that God has providentially positioned the Psalter (His divinely inspired song-book) right in the center of the Bible. But it is clear that music can be a sanctifying or seducing power. Satan has made full use of his musical prowess through rock and its promoters and this video unmasks the devil's spiritual power as the driving force behind rock and roll. Contrasting the message of rock with the Word of God, rock's seductive nature is laid bare in these instructive videos, thus providing a clear warning to those who are still entangled in its demonic clutches. First-hand experience coupled with several years of research has produced this exhaustive analysis and these videos have now been seen by millions. It is considered the definitive work on Rock music from a Christian perspective. One drawback that we should warn you about is that these videos contain some pictures of an effeminate, long-haired man (the Roman Catholic "Jesus") who is clearly supposed to be the Lord Jesus Christ. We note this violation of the second commandment so that you do not purchase these videos unaware of this fact. The videos are also quite explicit and are not suitable for younger children; parental discretion is strongly advised. We leave you with a telling quote from the study guide, "A lot of people want to say 'It's just music, I'm not paying attention to the words..." This is a total cop-out, the scriptures practically scream at us that we are to have NO fellowship with evil... Consider the following parable: A man is married to a woman named Mary and Mary has dedicated her life to fighting pollution. The man comes home one day and says, 'Mary, I've got the greatest new album; you won't believe how hot the guitarist is! One thing though, the words kind of stink so don't pay any attention to them.' As the CD plays Mary hears lyrics advocating the rape of the environment and even making fun of her by name for her anti-pollution efforts. She walks over and picks up the cover and it's got a picture of the group sticking her face into an oil slick! In Mary's mind (and really anybody else's), who does the man love more, Mary or his music? So Jesus must ask of a person who says he loves Him but listens to songs that mock him, tell lies, or extol the very sins that nailed Him to the cross." (p. 50).

ANDERSON, JOHN

The Scripture Doctrine of the Appropriation Which is in the Nature of Saving Faith, Stated and Illustrated; in Several Discourses (1793, 1849)
"The following sermons," writes Robertson, "appear to me the best I have every seen on the subject; and I have authority to declare, that this is the judgement of several ministers, of very respectable character, in the religious society to which I belong; and also of several others of different denominations, whose acknowledged reputation, and attachment to the interests of religion, would be a powerful recommendation of these Discourses to the perusal of their Christian friends and connections, both in North and South Britain." Foundational teaching on salvation and righteousness for which the author declares, "The faith which is described in the ensuing Sermons, prevailed in the hearts of the patriarches and prophets, martyrs and confessors, by which they subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises; it is that faith which leads the soul directly to Christ, as offered in the promise of the gospel, without waiting for any previous qualifications, and to improve him for sanctification as well as justification, by looking unto him for all the endowments necessary thereunto." Very pertinent to the "free offer" controversy and all Calvinist evangelistic endeavors. Fourth American edition, 180 pages.

BAILLIE, ROBERT

(NEW!) The Canterburians Self-Conviction: or an evident demonstration of the avowed Arminianisme, Poperie, and tyrannie of that faction, by their owne confessions.... (1641)
Baillie was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly. An exceedingly rare item, this book was written as the storms of the religious wars between the Puritans and the Prelates were beginning to blow. These were days when nations adopted overtly religious presuppositions and books such as this became international defences of gospel principles against the ecclesiastical (and political) forces of Antichrist -- and his generation of vipers. After rehearsing some of the major incidents of Prelatical persecution against the saints of the most high God, and calling to the English for support of the Covenanted cause of Christ, Baillie gives this stirring summary of his motives in writing this book, "behold I here first upon all hazard do break my pitcher, do hold out my Lamp, and blow my trumpet before the Commissioners of the whole Kingdom, offering to convince that prevalent faction by their own mouth, of Arminianism, Popery, and Tyranny." These were brave and zealous words, for in that day such speech could eventuate in your death. This is not only a historically relevant item, but also a fine defense against the prevailing heresies of the flesh (heresy being a work of the flesh, cf. Gal 5:19-20). The two predominant heresies addressed by Baillie in this book still cover much of the professing Christian world today; these being: (1.) false, man-centered views of salvation (Arminianism and Pelagianism) and (2.) false man-centered views of worship (Liturgical innovationism: either high church or Charismatic). "Baillie fought hard against Arminianism" noted Johnston (The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant
, p. 310); making this book especially valuable for today! This is the third edition of 128 pages plus a 28 page postscript.

BANNERMAN, DOUGLAS

Difficulties About Baptism (1898)
In this book (of 86 pages) Bannerman deals with the nature of the difficulties raised by questions arising from the Baptist view of baptism, in the context of the Christian church generally, both Scripturally and historically. He writes, "'Baptism,' as has been well said by R. W. Dale of Birmingham, 'is a glorious Gospel in an impressive rite.' In this little hand-book I have sought chiefly to meet difficulties which young men and women may not unnaturally feel about this ordinance, and to show on what broad and strong foundations the common view and practice of Reformed Christendom really rest, as regards both the mode and the subjects of Baptism." As a sample of Bannerman's though and writing, one interesting answer to a oft asked question from Baptists follows, "It is objected. 'Belief should always go before Baptism. Does not the Evangelist Mark say: 'He that believeth, and is baptized, shall be saved.'? (Mark xvi. 16.) Infants cannot believe; therefore they ought not to be baptized. Well, that half text, so often quoted, really proves nothing whatever against Infant Baptism. Take the text as it stands, only take the whole of it, and take the context with it; and the meaning is perfectly plain. It refers to the Gospel being preached 'in all the world,' the great heathen world beyond the bounds of Israel. It is to be preached and heard under solemn sanctions. It carries with it 'a savour of life and of death.' Everywhere it calls for faith, and confession of faith before men. 'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be condemned.' The promise and the warning apply only to the case under consideration. You can no more rightly infer from these words, it is purely a matter of inference at the most, that the infants of believers should not be baptized, than that they cannot be saved, because they cannot believe. Yet 'He that believeth not shall be condemned.' You might just as well argue from the Apostle's rule: 'He that will not work neither let him eat,' that because infants do not work they should get nothing to eat. In both cases, the words apply to those only in reference to whom they are spoken. And the historical situation makes it perfectly clear how the first disciples would understand Christ's command about 'discipling the nations.' If we are asked: 'Why baptize unconscious babes?' our answer is: Because it is in accordance with Scripture principle, and Scripture precedent in the Church of God from the days of Abraham to the days of Christ. If unconscious babes were circumcised, as we know, according to the will of God, on the ground of their parents' faith, why should they not be baptized on the ground of their parents' faith? 'If ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.' 'For to you is the promise,' Peter said, speaking to devout Jews and Gentile proselytes, 'and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call unto Him.' (Gal. iii.29) The Saviour 'called the babes unto Him, and took them up in His arms and blessed them,' when brought to Him in the arms of believing mothers. 'He was much displeased' with the disciples, who, with the best intentions, would have forbidden them to be brought for the blessing, because they were but unconscious babes, who could neither understand nor believe. Is there no danger of a like mistake being made in our time by those who, with the best of motives, would act in a similar way?'

BARROW, REG

Birth Control, Christian Education and the Victory of Christ's Kingdom
In two parts: 1. "Godless Public Education and Sin" and 2. "Why Satan Loves Birth Control." The first section shows from Scripture how it is a mark of apostasy to send young children, especially during their formative years, to schools that do not make Christ the Lord of education. It also encourages family worship and outlines the elements of this sacred task; giving a helpful list of resources related to both family worship and Christian education. The second essay deals with the practical effects of the pagan practice of birth control upon the church and the growth of the kingdom of Christ.

BARROW, REG

John Knox, Oliver Cromwell, God's Law and the Reformation of Civil Government
Many consider Knox one of the greatest Reformers ever and God used him to win the nation of Scotland to Christ. Knox laid the foundations for the Covenanters that followed, and they in turn gave us the clearest foretaste of the millennium glory to come in the magnificent Solemn League and Covenant. Speaking of these Reformation attainments McFeeters notes, "The fathers are worthy of all praise for this unprecedented effort to build the national government upon the true foundation of God's will, and administer it by men in Covenant with Jesus Christ, the King of kings. This was the first attempt to erect a Christian government, in which the fear of God should pervade every department and characterize every official" (Sketches of the Covenanters, p. 155-156). This book deals with some of Knox's most controversial political writings, demonstrating that he was what Barrow calls a "historic" theonomist (like Rutherford and Gillespie after him). It also offers some fine tuning for "modern" theonomists, which aims at leading them into the "footsteps of the flock" and closer to the classic or historic Presbyterian/Covenanter view of law (and away from some of the anabaptist/libertarian tendencies that sometimes arise among modern theonomists). Numerous resources, recently published, dealing with civil disobedience and opposition to tyranny are also listed. The first appendix in this book contains Barrow's letter to Christian Renewal
expressing his strong disagreement with an unfavorable and inaccurate review of Michael Wagner's Presbyterian Political Manifesto. In it he shows how the Reformers and their confessions of faith supported the civil establishment of the one true Christian religion, while at the same time publicly excluding Papist's, pagans and other heretics from places of civil rule (in countries blessed with the light of the gospel). The second appendix contains a series of letters dedicated to proving why Barrow calls Cromwell the "Judas of the Covenant." It demonstrates Cromwell's reckless abandon in violating his sacred vows to the Lord in the Solemn League and Covenant, while also showing why Cromwell's wicked, antichristian views concerning toleration and liberty of conscience led people away from Scriptural standards and helped open the floodgates to modern atheistic pluralism. In short, Cromwell was the prototype of our contemporary pragmatic politician, adept at equivocation and setting his own glory and government above all other concerns, including the glory and government of God. In this vein Barrow contends that Cromwell, unaffectionately dubbed the "late usurper" by the covenanted Presbyterians of the mid seventeenth-century, was used of the devil to accomplish things in the civil and ecclesiastical realm that he (i.e. satan) could never have accomplished with the more obviously an­tichristian religions of that day (which were not pluralistic theologically, such Romanism, Episcopalianism, etc.). For Cromwell laid his axe of ungodly toleration and pretended liberty of conscience to the root of the tree of covenanted Reformation in a much more subtle man­ner than the previous "midwives to antichrist," and thus his sectarianism better served the devious designs of the devil during those days. This section also exposes Cromwell as a Erastian tyrant, a liar, and a dictator, who (with the help of his sectarian army) executed the covenanted Presbyterian minister Christopher Love (Cromwell's soldiers even threatened to shoot Thomas Manton for preaching at Love's funeral), sent many other Presbyterian ministers to jail (including Thomas Watson), disbanded the Scottish general assembly (at gunpoint), and eventually began negotiations with Papists (with the intent of granting them a measure of "liberty" to more freely practice their superstitions and soul murder). This is not the view of Cromwell that you will hear from modern historians and theologians who have abandoned the context of covenanted Reformation (how could it be?), for as Rushdoony has correctly pointed out, "Men cannot give a meaning to history that they themselves lack, nor can they honor a past which indicts them for their present failures" (A Biblical Philosophy of History, p. 135).

BARROW, REG

Reformation Worship and Separation from Idolatry
In two parts: 1. "The Regulative Principle of Worship in History" and 2. "Psalm Singing in Scripture and History." Part one explains, defends and chronicles the Reformation use of the regulative principle as the basis of all faithful public worship. Part two defends exclusive Psalmody, demonstrating that this position is nothing less than our Reformation heritage, based on the second commandment. It argues, on the foundation of a biblically close communion, that Christians should separate themselves ecclesiastically from those who do not practice exclusive Psalmody. Hard teaching, but faithful to Scriptures and the original intent of the Westminster Standards.

Baynes, a Puritan divine, succeeded William Perkins "in the lecture at St. Andrews, Cambridge" (Darling, Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, p. 216). Here he answers three major questions concerning church government. First, Whether Christ did institute or the Apostles frame any Diocesan form of Churches, or parishional only? Second, Whether Christ ordained by himself, or by the Apostles, any ordinary Pastors, as our Bishops, having both precedence of order, and majority of power above others? Third, Whether Christ did immediately commit ordinary power ecclesiastical, and the exercise of it, to any one singular person, or to a united multitude of Presbyters?

This Puritan Paperback (from the Banner of Truth) sets forth the place of the law in the Christian life. Bolton (1606-1654)... expounds the nature of Christian liberty and then clearly sets the bounds of that liberty in answer to the following six questions:
1. Does our being made free by Christ free us from the law?
2. Does our being made free by Christ deliver us from all punishments or chastisements for sin?
3. Is it consistent with Christian freedom to be under obligation to perform duties because God has commanded them?
4. May Christ's freemen come into bondage again through sin?
5. Is it consistent with Christian freedom to perform duties out of respect for the recompense of the reward?
6. Does the freedom of a Christian free him from all obedience to men?
This book had a profound effect on the ministry and life of the late Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen and sets forth the classic puritan position on the law. "Warmth and devotion to Christ mark all its pages. The slur of 'legalism' often cast upon those who framed the Westminster Confession of Faith finds no justification in this instructive and edifying work. Bolton treatise represents a combination of doctrinal and experimental theology which aims at touching the conscience even as it enlightens the understanding" (Publisher's Introduction). "Bolton was sufficiently renowned in Puritan England as a scholar and divine, to be chosen as one of the Westminster Assembly of Divines which met in 1643 to introduce a second Reformation in English religion."

BRADFORD, JOHN

The Writings of John Bradford
Although converted to Protestantism only in 1547, imprisoned in 1553 and burned to death in 1555, Bradford in the influence of his life and preaching belonged among the foremost of the English Reformers. J.C. Ryle commented concerning the writings found in this set, "All are good, and all deserve reading. He that can read them without feeling his soul stirred within him him, must be in an unsatisfactory condition. To my mind, there is not only Scriptural soundness in all that Bradford writes, but a peculiar fire, unction, warmth, and directness, which entitles him to a very high rank among Christian authors."

The Christian Ministry with an Inquiry into the Causes of its Inefficiency
Bridges begins by considering the general and personal causes of ministerial ineffectiveness, and goes on to examine comprehensively preaching and pastoral work.

BROOKS, THOMAS

Heaven on Earth: A Treatise on Christian Assurance
Brooks "scatters stars with both his hands" wrote C.H. Spurgeon. His teaching is clear, thorough and greatly needed in the present spiritual climate. Brooks explains what true assurance is and guides the reader in how it may be fully experienced. This is one of the volumes in the Puritan Paperbacks series from Banner of Truth.

BROOKS, THOMAS

Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices
Among the publishers' reasons for this reprint is the fact, noted by George Smeaton, that the best Christian authors of former times treated the seductive influence and terrible power of Satan in a way "greatly more full and suggestive than in the literature of the present day." This is one volume in the Puritan Paperbacks series from Banner of Truth.

BROOKS, THOMAS

Sins Which Bring God's Fiery Judgement Upon Cities and Nations
Spurgeon said Brook's writings were "marvelously rich" and his "wealth of imagery surpasses all others of his age." He continued, "Of all the Puritans he is the most readable... and if he cannot display the depth of Owen or the raciness of Adams, he leaves them far behind in excessive sweetness and sparkling beauty of metaphor." This item is taken from Brooks' "London's Lamentation on the Late Fiery Dispensation." Some of the sins catalogued comprehend Atheism, Sabbath-breaking, lying, fornication and sodomy, the mocking of God's servants, a lukewarm ministry and refusal to repent (even under severe judgements). A good look at what causes God to pour out His wrath, of which our cities and nations can expect an ongoing escalation of, baring a major revival soon.

BROOKS, THOMAS

What a Hypocrite Cannot Do
Expounds on 13 spiritual things that hypocrites cannot do. Includes among these: "A hypocrite's inside is never answerable to his outside;" "No hypocrite under heaven is totally divorced from the love and liking of every known sin, so neither is his heart thoroughly subdued to a willingness to perform all known duties;" "No hypocrite can live wholly and only upon the righteousness of Christ, the satisfaction of Christ, the merits of Christ, for justification and salvation" (Romanism and the cults being prime examples of institutionalized hypocrisy, RB); "No hypocrite ever makes it his business, his work, to bring his heart into religious duties and services;" "No hypocrite in the world loves the word, or delights in the word, or prizes the word, as it is a holy word, a spiritual word, a beautiful word, a pure word, a clean word;" and much more. Basically, as Brooks states, "Some have shewed the several rounds in Jacob's ladder, that an hypocrite may climb up to; but my business and work... is to shew you the several rounds in Jacob's ladder that no hypocrite under heaven can climb up to."

BROWN, DAVID

Christ's Second Coming: Will It Be Premillennial?
One of the most devastating books ever written against premillennialism. Ken Gentry says of it: "As The New Schaff-Herzog Religious Encyclopedia observed, this work is widely regarded "a classic." And classics, especially evangelical classics, well deserve a new hearing by a new genera­tion of Christians... The present work is Brown's postmillennial argument against premillennialism (which he once endorsed). In Part One of the work he presents a devastating nine fold argument, organized around nine propositions­, against the premillennial system as it was presented in the early and mid-1800's. In Part Two he presents a postmillennial view of the spirituality of the millennium against the backdrop of the carnal, political millennium of premillennial­ism. In the final Part of the book he considers seven of the leading objections to his views and very capably responds to them... Having read it I wondered how premillennialism survived its penetrating analysis... Consequently, I am delighted at the republication of this classic, especially this particular edition, which is a later one than that pub­lished by Baker Book House in 1983. It should be noted that Brown's work went through several editions during his lifetime... The republication of this work is particularly important today... I commend Reg Barrow and Still Waters Revival Books for offering this edition of David Brown's Christ's Second Coming: Will It Be Premillennial? May the Lord of Glory be pleased to give a renewed vision to his Church of a conquering Christ, Who is both Savior and Lord!" Credenda Agenda (No. 7, vol. 5), in their review of this title noted, "Brown is not a preterist. For this reason, convinced Preterists should read him... this nineteenth-century reprint is a welcome classic." Limited stock remaining. When our hardcover stock is depleted we will substitute a "bound photocopy" edition in its place, at the same low price, unless you instruct us otherwise.

BROWN, DAVID (Contemporary introduction by Steve Schlissel)

Hal Lindsey and the Restoration of the Jews
Brown is most famous for his collaboration with Robert Jamieson and A.R. Fausett on the classic six volume "A Commentary, Critical and Explanatory on the Old and New Testaments," commonly re­ferred to as either "Jamieson, Fausett, and Brown," or more suc­cinctly "JFB." The bulk of this book (first published in 1861) is made up of Brown's classic treatment of Romans chapter 11 and its relation to the restoration of the Jews. Romans 11 has long been a chapter which has led many theologians to a postmillennial understanding of Scripture, (Brown himself was once a premillenialist), and you will find few that will rival Brown on his exegesis of this important section of Scripture. Schlissel, converted from Judaism and a former dispensationalist, gives this debate a contemporary flavor in his introduction. Beside documenting the fact that the bulk of Reformed interpreters have been postmillennial, he also take on some of the wild claims of modern dispensationalists such as Hal Lindsey. Furthermore, this book includes a publisher's preface which gives the testimony of Reg Barrow and his "conversion" from the dispensational labyrinth. Can't beat the price either! 200 pages.

BROWN of Haddington, JOHN (annotations). Psalter by Francis Rouse, the Westminster Divines, and the Scottish General Assembly (from 1646-1650)

The Psalms of David in Metre with Notes, Exhibiting the Connection, Explaining the Sense, and for Directing and Animating the Devotion
This is the Psalter 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. Concerning the care and preparation that went into this unsurpassed Metrical Psalter, the January 15/93 issue of The Original Covenanter and Contending Witness cites an earlier article which notes, "Rouse bestowed upon it his greatest pains. This was not enough. For six Years it endured the scrutiny of, and was revised by, two of the most learned Assemblies that ever sat in the British Isles; at a time, too, when these men were zealous for truth and suspicious of error. Every word was weighed, and every expression made exact, before admitted into any statement of Biblical truth. They wrote not so that they might be understood, but so that they could not be misunderstood. This exactness and conscientiousness they carried with them in their translation of the Psalms. In versifying them, they labored not to clothe the mind of the Spirit in poetic finery, but to cause the muse to bow to the exact expression of the Holy Ghost. The rhyme and rhythm are often defective; but what of that? it is the very word of God. That it is, is the testimony of many eminent Christian scholars. And so far from the poetry and style being deserving of contempt or ridicule, men of great literary taste have seen much in it to admire. Walter Scott says: 'The expression of the old metrical translation, though homely, is plain, forcible, and intelligible, and very often possesses a rude sort of majesty which, perhaps, would be ill exchanged for mere elegance.' For more than two centuries they have stood the test, and every attempt to render them more elegant has resulted in a departure from the exact expression of the Spirit. Let us hold fast to this good old version until another proves itself worthy of its place. History makes this sacred to us, These very words our forefathers sung'mid the rocks and glens o'bonnie Scotland. Our fathers sang them in the mountain wilds of Pennsylvania and the forests of the western wilderness. With these words they lightened their labours, mitigated their sorrows, assuaged their griefs, comforted their hearts, and lifted their souls to heaven." The notes added by Brown are suitable for explaining the Psalm before singing and are a great aid to daily family worship. Every father should have a copy of the version 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. All the Psalms, excepting one, are rendered into common metre (with occasional alternate version 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 work 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 a delight of the accomplished musician, but certainly calculated to make the Psalms most accessible to young and old alike. This is sure to please God and be most conducive to national reformation. The Scottish Metrical Psalter is a faithful translation and without a doubt the best Psalter (when covenanted reformation is in mind) in existence today.

BROWN (of Wamphray), JOHN

An Apologetical Relation of the Particular Sufferings of the Faithful Ministers and Professors of the Church of Scotland Since 1660, Wherein Several Questions, Useful for the Time, Are Discussed, etc., etc.
Brown was ejected in the "great ejection" of 1662 and thereafter imprisoned for speaking out against acknowledging the newly-appointed Archbishop of Glasgow. Later released from prison, upon condition of banishment, he left for the Netherlands in 1663. During these years he devoted himself to writing. "Early in the year 1666 the Council was staggered by the dissemination of a little epoch-making book entitled 'An Apologetical Relation'... It was printed abroad in 1665... This treatise in twenty-three sections deals trenchantly with every aspect of the dispute, and powerfully maintains the righteousness of the principles and actions of the Covenanters, even to justifying their resistance to their unconstitutional governors. Acknowledging its dangerous import the Council at once proclaimed it seditious, ordered the hangman to burn it at the Cross, and attached a fine of 2000 pounds Scots to any possessor of it," notes Hewison (The Covenanters, vol. 2, p.189). Furthermore, "His (Brown's) Apologetical Relation, or historic defence of the Church, and exposition and vindication of its principles, was much disliked by the Prelatic party in Scotland, and found a place in their Index Espurgatorius" (Carslaw, Exiles of the Covenant, p. 106), The Reformed Presbytery adds further historical context to this famous work when they write, "new measures were again fallen upon for the oppression, suppression and extirpation of the true reformed religion, and the professors of it. The council being very diligent and careful to deprive the Lord's people of every thing which might contribute to their establishment and confirmation in the righteousness and equity of the cause and covenant of God for which they suffered, and which tended to expose their tyranny and treason against God, ordered the famous Mr. Brown's Apologetical Relation to be burnt in the high street of Edinburgh, on February 14th, 1666... such was their hellish enmity and and spite against our covenanted reformation, and every thing written in defense thereof, and in vindication of those that suffered for their adherence to it" (Act, Declaration and Testimony, p. 28). It is for works such as these that Johnston (in The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 339) says of Brown that "(h)e has been regarded (as) the most important theologian of the second period of Scottish Presbyterianism." To understand the nature of the conflagration emanating from the pits of hell, to suppress the knowledge of the battle for Christ's Crown and Covenant, the history of this fight (which included the sufferings of many faithful martyrs), and why a new and similar struggle is ensuing, some 331 years after the initial writing of this book, pick up this indispensable weapon (extracted from the Presbyterian Armoury, vol. 3), and "ride to the sound of the gun." Brown deals with "the lawfulness of defensive wars," the divine right of church government, the divine right of kings (and related political questions), the "Supreme Magistrate's Power in Church Matters," "the Rise, Reign and Ruin of the Former Prelates in Scotland," and much, much more!

BROWN (of Wamphray), JOHN

Christ: the Way the Truth and the Life
John Brown of Wamphray (1610-1679) has been rightly called the most important Scottish theologian of his day. He was especially gifted at merging profound doctrinal truth with warm Christ-centered zeal and godly piety. Samuel Rutherford wrote of him, "I always [had]... a great love to dear Mr. John Brown because I thought I saw Christ in him more than in his brethren." Brown's blending of doctrinal truth and Christ-centered piety is most clearly displayed in his Christ: the Way the Truth and the Life. This is biblical, Reformed, Puritan spirituality at its best. Would you learn the art of continually fleeing to Christ by faith for your justification and sanctification? Read and reread this precious volume, filled with experimental truth about how to go to Christ continually for every spiritual need. Use it as a devotional gem, and pray for the Holy Spirit to grant you a growing, daily "making use" of Christ by faith (Joel Beeke, back cover).

BROWN, P. HUME

John Knox: A Biography (1895, 2 volumes)
Brown says of Knox, "It would, indeed, be difficult to name another historical personage who in such degree as Knox revealed a nation's genius to itself, and at once vitalized and dominated its collective thought and action. To Present Knox in this twofold aspect, at once as a great Scotsman, and a figure of European importance, is the object of the present biography." Moreover, Brown continues, noting that in Knox "we have precisely what distinguishes the great religious leader from the mere religious visionary" and we "have seen in Knox one of the great emancipators of humanity, whose work left undone would irremediably have injured the highest interests not only of his own country but of the community of civilized nations... For the mass of his countrymen, those who have shaped the nation's destinies in the past as they must shape them in the future, Knox is the greatest person their country has produced, and the man to whom in all that makes a people great they owe the deepest and most abiding debt. 'What I have been to my country,' he himself said when within sight of the end he looked back on the long travail of his life, 'what I have been to my country, albeit this unthankful age will not know, yet the ages to come will be compelled to bear witness to the truth;' and the consenting testimony of three centuries is the evidence and pledge that his assurance was not in vain." An rare and extensive biography of over 700 pages at a very low price.

BURGESS, ANTHONY

Vindiciae Legis: or, A Vindication of the Moral Law and the Covenants, from the Errors of Papists, Arminians, Socinians, and more especially, Antinomians (1647)
"A nonconformist clergyman," Burgess "was a member of the (Westminster) Assembly of Divines. Ejected at the Restoration... his works are much valued and have become very scarce" (Darling, Cyclopedia Bibliographica
, p. 439). This book contains 30 lectures preached at London "against the antinomian errours of the times." It is the second edition corrected and augmented. Burgess says that he wrote to "maintain the dignitie and use of the Morall Law against late errours about it." Taking on all the errorists listed in the subtitle Burgess also notes that he has "endeavoured to give the Law its due, and the Gospel its due, remembering that of Luther... He that knoweth how to distinguish between Law and Gospel, let him give thanks to God, and know he is a Divine" (i.e. a scholar of Scripture-RB). An exceedingly rare item that sells for over $300 a copy on the rare book market. This book should be read by everyone in the Protestant Reformed church (or anyone who must deal with them) as it demolishes their (i.e. Protestant Reformed) errors concerning covenants --especially in regard to their denial (and disregard for the biblical, "Westminster" view) of the covenant of works. Some of its 62 chapter heads include: "What a man cannot do by the power of nature;" "Whether there are any antecedaneous works upon the heart before grace;" "What does this Image (of God in man--RB) consist;" "Whether God did enter into a covenant with Adam;" "How God can be said to covenant, or enter into a promise with man;" What Law this delivered in Mount Sinai is, and what kind of laws there are, and why it's called the Moral Law;" Whether this Law repeated by Moses, be the same with the law of nature implanted in us;" "Why God gave the Moral Law;" Whether the Law be an instrument of sanctification;" "Whether the Law be a covenant of grace;" Wherein the Law and Gospel do oppose or differ from each other; under which is handled the false differences between the Law and Gospel made by Anabaptists, Papists, and Antinomians;" "Whether the Law command faith;" "How Christ is the end of the Law."

Come Out From Among Them: The "Anti-Nicodemite" Writings of John Calvin
Much of Calvin's best work still lays buried in languages other than English (as Eire's book War Against The Idols: The Reformation of Worship from Erasmus to Calvin
testifies). This will no longer be the case with these fine sermons and writings, of which most are now translated, for the first time ever, into English! Calvin placed the central emphasis of the Reformation not on the doctrine of salvation alone, but equally upon the foundation of biblically-regulated worship. The works contained in this newly compiled edition find Calvin at his "ballistic" best as he refutes and rebukes all those who would undermine the Reformation, by compromising the truth of Christ, in their outward attendance among those who practice idolatrous acts of "worship" (i.e. those referred to as the "Nicodemites"). Here we find Calvin calling for separation from all churches which embrace idolatrous worship. He takes the bold and Biblical stand that only the most seriously committed Reformers ever understood (like Knox), even proclaiming that it is better to worship privately in your home than to engage in dissimulation by participating in ordinances of worship which are known to be false. For Calvin clearly taught, "When the spiritual government doth degenerate, the consciences of the godly are at liberty, and set free from obeying unjust authority; especially if the wicked and profane enemies of holiness do falsely pretend the title of priesthood (i.e. clergy--OC) to overthrow the doctrine of salvation (as do Arminians, Neonomians, Antinomians, Dispensationalists, etc.), and challenge to themselves such authority, as that they will be thereby equal with God (i.e. making the law of God void through human traditions; e.g. humanly composed hymns, instrumental music, choirs, holy-days, etc.--OC)" (Calvin as cited in The Original Covenanter and Contending Witness magazine). As Calvin's words once again thunder down the corridors of the centuries, in the common language of the people, they will certainly ring true in the ears of those who hear the Master's voice, providing a firm foundation for future Reformation(s). This title also contains another excellent "Publishers Introduction" by Kevin Reed, which we believe is worth the price of the book on its own. Combined with Calvin's work, which is easily worth its weight in gold, you will not find a better buy among religious books (hardcovers) printed in 1996.

CALVIN, JOHN

The Covenant Enforced: John Calvin's Sermons on Deuteronomy 27 and 28
As Reformation began to consolidate in Geneva, John Calvin preached 200 sermons on the book of Deuteronomy in order to show the people the kind of Christian republic God wanted them to have. Calvin's sermons were published in English in the 1580's, and went through three editions. They have been highly influential in the development of English and American Christian culture. This book contains 15 sermons, those on Deuteronomy 27 and 28, which discuss the blessings and curses of the covenant. Rendered into modern English, these sermons are not only valuable in showing the thought of one of the most profound shapers of the modern world, but they are of tremendous value to pastors, seminarians, and teachers.

Sermons on Galatians
It has been over 400 years since Calvin's 43 Sermons on Galatians were published in a collected edition. Old Paths Publications has prepared a newly typeset edition from the 1574 printing of the English translation by Arthur Golding in its entirety. This massive volume (of almost 1000 pages) is the complete and unabridged work of Calvin on Galatians, not to be confused with his commentary. An original copy is so rare that antiquarian booksellers price them at $1000. The sermons have been edited to reflect contemporary spelling, and bracketed words in italics are inserted following some antiquated terms or phrases as a convenience for the modern reader. A Scripture and subject index are also included. In this set of sermons, Calvin particularly addresses free justification by faith alone, Christian liberty, the abolishing of the ceremonial law (and its implications), the force and effect of the moral law, and the pure walk of the Christian life.

CAMERONIAN

(NEW!) Was the Bishop's Death Murder? (1860)
This book deals with the death of James Sharp. He was a Resolutioner (i.e. backslidden Covenanter) turned persecuting Prelate, who after becoming Archbishop of St. Andrews began a relentless persecution of his former colleagues. He helped to revive the notorious Court of High Commission in 1664, with himself as president. This court persecuted nonconformist protestants, over religious issues, and was especially fond of doing the Royalist beast's bidding in regards to Presbyterian ministers (who dissented from both the civil and ecclesiastical Episcopalian establishment). This court had absolute power and could and did hand out death sentences (adapted from the Dictionary of Scottish Church History
, p. 768). "This article refers to the killing of Arch-bishop James Sharpe, in 1779, by a handful of Covenanters who providentially crossed paths with the bloody bishop -- the architect of the slaughter of thousands of innocents. In the words of a contemporary, Alexander Shields, 'Upon the 3d of May, 1679, several worthy gentlemen, with some other men of courage and zeal for the cause of God and the good of the country, executed righteous judgement upon him in Magus Moor near St Andrews'" (Editor's note in the Original Covenanter and Contending Witness magazine, vol. 2, #16, August 5, 1994). For a more detailed defense of the Protestant doctrine expounded in this short introductory book, see Shields' massive tome, A Hind Let Loose; specifically part 3, head 6: "The Suffering of Some, upon the Account of Extraordinary executing of Judgement upon Notorious Incendiaries, and Murdering Public Enemies by Private Persons in the Circumstances Wherein they were Stated Vindicated."

CARSLAW, W.H.

Exiles of the Covenant (1908 ed.)
"This volume may very properly be regarded as a sequel to Six Martyrs of the Scottish Reformation" (below). It deals with "those who were banished from Scotland and forbidden to return, or who left of their own accord that they might obtain elsewhere security for their liberty and lives. As England and Ireland were then separate and independent kingdoms, though under the same king as Scotland, we shall begin with them, and afterwards extend our enquiries to the Netherlands, and other parts of the Old World and New." Includes short biographies of 34 Covenanters, including Alexander Shields, James Fraser of Brea, Alexander Peden, John Brown [of Waphray] and Lady Grizzel Baillie, all who suffered exile because they would not relinquished the covenanted cause of Christ as exhibited in the National Covenant (1638) and Solemn Leagues and Covenant (1643). Ungodly tyrants, stirred by demonic hordes, hounded the faithful followers of Christ, during these eventful years. Drawing their authority (or power, Romans 13:1) from the beast and "framing mischief by law (Ps. 94:20)," the following quotation by Carslaw reveals the flavor of these "killing times," as wicked men ascended the throne "...on the death of Charles II, and the accession of his brother, an open Papist, this Solemn League and Covenant was once more publicly and officially disowned. By one of the Acts of his first Parliament in Edinburgh, 'James, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith," pronounced all guilty of the crime of treason, 'who would give or take this Covenant, or write in defence thereof, or own it as lawful, or binding on themselves, or others." A great book for all, but especially for older home and Christan schoolers! 215 easy reading pages.

CARSLAW, W.H.

Six Martyrs of the Scottish Reformation (1907 ed.)
Carslaw, who also edited Scots Worthies, notes in his preface: "When we speak of the Scottish Reformation, we should never forget that the name is applicable to two great religious and national movements, separated from each other by the greater part of a century. The one, which reached its culmination in 1560, when the first Reformed Assembly met in Edinburgh, was the Reformation from Popery. The other, which found expression in the National Covenant of 1638, was the Reformation from Prelacy and all its works. The former was preceded by the martyrdom of such men as Patrick Hamilton, George Wishart, and Walter Myln. The latter was followed by the fifty-years' struggle of the Covenanters..." Beside setting forth the testimonies of the three martyrs of the first Reformation noted above, Carslaw has also selected three from the second Reformation, these being James Guthrie, Marquis of Argyll and Sir Archibald Johnstone, Lord Warriston (who helped Alexander Henderson in the preparation of the Scottish National Covenant [1638] against the polices of Charles I and was one of the Scottish commissioners appointed to the Westminster Assembly). Three appendices are also included.

CASE, THOMAS

Of Sabbath Sanctification (1674, reprinted 1844)
Sets forth the duty and privilege of Sabbath sanctification as based upon the text: "If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it" (Isa. 58:13-14). A Puritan sermon dealing faithfully with "the market day of the soul." Sure to produce strong consternation among all classes of antinomians, infidels and demons.

CASON, DAVID W.

Christmas Keeping and the Reformed Faith
In 1994 and 1995, Professor David Engelsma defended Christmas observance in the pages of the Standard Bearer, a denominational publication of the Protestant Reformed churches. In support of Christmas-keeping, the professor used arguments which bear upon Reformed principles of worship in general, as well as Christmas observance in particular. In this booklet David Cason examines Engelsma's remarks, showing that the professor has seriously misrepresented principles of worship which are foundational to the Reformed faith. Cason shows how biblical principles of worship apply to ecclesiastical festivals, and he reviews the historic testimony of Reformed churches and authors regarding Christmas observance. The chapter "Christmas Versus John Calvin" is especially interesting. (64 page booklet)

CHAO, DR. CHARLES H.

Out of the Tiger's Mouth
Born in China in 1916, Charles Chao, is in the words of Dr. Loraine Boettner, "a man of God, with untiring devotion." His life's work has been for China. Despite persecution from Chinese communists, narrow escapes from prison and death, Charles Chao has not ceased to translate major Christian works (including the Westminster Confession of Faith and Boettner's Reformed Doctrine of Predestination, RB) for his fellow countrymen. This book tells the exiting story of this man's life, how God continually provided for the specific needs of his family, his work and himself. As you read this book, you will be amazed with God's timing and how God's plan in being unfolded in China" (back cover). Dr. Chao's work is being carried out through the Reformation Translation Fellowship (RTF). RTF's doctrinal basis is the Westminster Confession of Faith and gifts to support their work are tax deductible.

Biblical Economics in Comics (by Vic Lockman)
"An amusing guide to free market economics in Christian perspective. Better than a college course! More fun than recess! Good for all ages" (publisher's sales blurb). New revised edition of 118 pages.

This book is therefore to be used with caution when given to children.

Children Bible Pac Books
Children love these colorfully illustrated Bible stories written by Carine Mackenzie. These books contain NO pictures of Christ and come from a Reformed publisher. They are finely crafted and can stand up to the "hard use" that they will sometimes meet at the hands of younger children. Because of the expensive type of paper used (and especially the glossy covers) these books can weather some staining by liquids (however, they are not indestructible). These features are especially helpful when you you have a "full quiver," and some of your "arrows," in the pre-reading years, have got use of their hands and legs to the extent that they are quite mobile, but are still young enough to handle books somewhat roughly. In short, these are among the best books for younger children, regarding both content and durability, that we have found.

Helen of the Glen: Through Trial and Triumph (by George F. MacLean)
A story of Christian heroism. This book is set in the days when the Covenanters worshiped God at secret open air services (conventicles), over three hundred years ago. These conventicles had been banned by the Royalist/Anglican government of that day and many faithful Christians suffered (and even died) for attending these worship services. Helen, the young heroine of this story, was only 15 when the soldiers came to the farm and tortured her. Her story of courage, faith and victory in Christ is set forth in this 48 page book. Originally written by Robert Pollock (1798-1824), MacLean has presented this story in a fresh lively way which makes it easy to read and suitable for children. Illustrated.

CLARKSON, ANDREW

Plain Reasons for Presbyterians Dissenting from the Revolution Church of Scotland. Also, Their Principles Concerning Civil Government, and the Difference Betwixt the Reformation and Revolution Principles (1731)
An exceedingly rare and important book now back in print after 265 years! The Contending Witness
magazine (May, 1841) described Plain Reasons "as the single best volume penned defending the principles of the second Reformation." It sets forth "the grounds why Presbyterian Dissenters refused to hold communion with the revolution church and state," (Reformed Presbytery, Act Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation, p. 154n). The biblical principles contained in this book still apply today and thus Plain Reasons remains one of the best books explaining why (and when) an individual (church or citizen) should separate himself (or itself) from those (in church or state) who do not hold fast to all the attainments of our covenanted Reformation forefathers. In this regard the session of the Puritan Reformed Church of Edmonton calls this the one book that best explains why faithful Covenanted Presbyterians must, for conscience sake, remain ecclesiastically separate from all Presbyterian denominations that have backslidden from second Reformation attainments. (This being the classic corporate Calvinistic application of such commands as "Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing" [Phil. 3:16, emphasis added]. It is also the acknowledgement that the Lord has clearly stated in his Word that he "requireth that which is past" [Eccl. 3:15]).

Furthermore, the session of the PRC of Edmonton has noted that this book "clearly spells out the reasons why to unite with the Revolution Church (1689) or any of its descendants (The Free Church of Scotland, The Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, and American Presbyterian Churches) is to undermine and subvert the work of the Second Reformation. The argumentation is cogent (with an abundant supply of documentation). The reading can be divided up into 5-10 pages at a time. Reasons 8 and 9 (pp. 77-91) which speak to the issue of the covenants are very helpful, as is Reason 14 (pp. 138-140) which covers the matter of terms of communion. We might also highlight Clarkson's treatment of ecclesiastical dissent (pp. 172-221 wherein he discusses schism) and political dissent (pp. 221-280).
This is the best apologetic we have read defending the necessity of Presbyterians to faithfully maintain the attainments of the Second Reformation" (emphasis added). Moreover, Clarkson's section on schism, separation and the nature of the visible church (constitutionally considered) contains over 10 pages of notes and quotes taken from numerous Reformers including: Beza, Rutherford, Gillespie, Dickson, Durham, M'Ward (Rutherford's disciple), Marshall, Watson, Cotton, Owen, Burroughs, Fraser, and Case -- demonstrating that his ideas regarding dissent from corrupt and backsliding civil or ecclesiastical governments are not new, but merely classic Reformation doctrine. The book also answers a multitude of pertinent and realistic objections in sections conveniently located directly after each reason for dissent.

Moreover, the days of the revolution settlement were a time of civil and ecclesiastical confusion not unlike our own day -- the beast (civil and ecclesiastical) was attempting to devour the "woman in the wilderness" by a cunning mixture of half-truths that were designed to beguile an exhausted and persecution-weary remnant. The
consequences of the actions taken in these days, by both church and state "officials," have been amplified by time and apply directly to our contemporary civil and ecclesiastical situation ("That which hath been is now" [Eccl. 3:15]).

The Reformed Presbytery's Act, Declaration and Testimony
(p. 47) further explains the original historical context -- so germane to the thesis of this book -- regarding those deceptively trying days which followed the "killing times" and final martyrs' death of that period of persecution (being the death of the covenanted Presbyterian minister James Renwick, who sealed his testimony with his blood February 17, 1688).

Of the so-called "glorious revolution of 1688" and the overthrow of the Royalist tyranny the Reformed Presbytery's measured and discerning comments read, "for in a few months, God in his righteous judgement and adorable providence, overturned that (Royalist--RB) throne of iniquity on which they (the persecuting popish, prelatical, Erastian, antichristian [civil and ecclesiastical] "authorities" which were then wondering after the beast--RB) depended, and expelled that inhuman, cruel monster (the duke of York--RB), from his tyrannical and usurped power, upon the Prince of Orange's (William of Orange--RB) coming over into England, in the beginning of November that same year (1688--RB). But although the Lord at this juncture, and by this means, rescued and delivered our natural and civil rights and privileges in a national way, from under the oppression and bondage of anti-christian tyranny, arbitrary and absolute power; yet the revolution, at this time, brought no real deliverance to the church of God; but Christ's rights (by these [rights--RB] are not meant the rights of Christ personal. It is not in the power of mortals, or any creature, to acquire and secure these to him; but the rights of Christ mystical, that is, of the church, or of his truth, true worship, and religion, and professors of it as such.), formerly acquired for him by his faithful servants, lay still buried under the rubbish of that anti-christian building of prelacy, erected on the ruins of his work in this land; and the spiritual liberties and privileges of his house remained, and do still remain under the bondage of Erastianism, supremacy, toleration, etc. For it is well known, that although this man (William of Orange--RB), Jehu-like, 'destroyed Baal out of Israel, yet he departed not from the sins of Jereboam, wherewith he made Israel to sin.'"

As a second witness to the testimony also given throughout Clarkson's Plain Reasons see pages 55 and following in the Act, Declaration and Testimony for more on "the grounds of the presbytery's testimony against the constitutions, both civil and ecclesiastical, at the late revolution, anno 1689; as also against the gross Erastianism and tyranny that has attended the administration both of church and state, since that memorable period; with various instances thereof, etc."

Since these momentous days Antichrist and his minions have sought to bury the covenanted Reformation and its attainments (upholding Christ's Kingship over both church and state) under the rubbish of democratic, humanistic, atheistic, tolerationism and a "detestable neutrality" in the cause of God and truth -- the same "detestable neutrality" so strongly inveighed against in the Solemn league and Covenant. Commenting on this defection from within professing Christendom
, Clarkson writes, "It is also evident from this, that Schism from our covenanted Church consists in this, to wit, When the Members of the Church make Defection to the contrary part, that is in plain Terms, when they associate or incorporate with, assist and defend the Parties against whom the Covenant (Solemn League and Covenant--RB) was made and sworn, viz. Papists, Prelatist and their Underlings, Hereticks, &c. the common Enemies of Reformation; and fall from the Duties of Preserving and propagating the Reformation of the three Kingdoms; and refuse to join with, assist and defend those, who adhere to the Covenants, in the necessary Work of Renewing them, for Extirpation of Popery, Prelacy, Erastianism, Superstition, Heresy, Error and Profaneness, and whatsoever is contrary to sound Doctrine and the Power of Godliness; and for re-establishing, preserving, and propagating the covenanted Reformation, once happily established in these Lands, and sworn unto by our Covenants. Furthermore, Schism from our covenanted Church consists in this, viz, When Members, Ministers or others, give themselves to a detestable Indifferency and Neutrality, in the Cause of God, namely, in the preserving and propagating the covenanted Reformation of these three Kingdoms; that is to say, When Men are like so many Gallio's in the Cause of God, preferring worldly Ease, Honour and Wealth, their own Interest to the Interest of Christ, become easy, whether the covenanted Reformation in these Lands sink or swim; and, from a cowardly Disposition in some, and a malignant, perfidious Temper in others, coalesce and accord in apostatizing from the Articles of Covenant foresaid, the Cause of God, and its honest-hearted Friends; and frighted from both, as if they thought it both Sin and Shame to have it said, that they carried any warm Side to either the one or the other. I say, All Members of this National Church, who, on Account of any Combination, Persuasion, or Terror and Fear of worldly Loss, of Sufferings of whatsoever Kind, are guilty in any of these two Cases, are also guilty of making SCHISM from the covenanted Church, as is clearly manifest by the 6th Article of our Solemn Covenant" (pp. 182-184, , emphasis added).

Commenting on the common charge of schism leveled against those who would maintain the attainments of the covenanted Reformation, Clarkson writes: "Now, upon the whole of this Objection, as 'tis plain, Presbyterian Dissenters are not Schismatics, nor deserve to be so called; so 'tis a most groundless and shameless Reflection, to call them Separatists, tho' 'tis the ordinary Name of Epithet given them, especially in Print; yet to me, and I judge to many others, it is a Wonder with what Audacity, Men of Sobriety and Conscience should have the confidence to speak at such a Rate, unless they intend, in a desperate Humour, to render their Authority every where, amongst all sober persons, contemptible: For, if two Persons, walking upon a high Path-Road, on the Brink of a Puddle, the one of them by a Blast of Wind tumbling headlong into the Gulf; when weltering amidst the Glare and miery Clay, cries up to his Neighbor upon the Brink, Sir, unless you tumble over after me, I will look upon you as a Separatist: Which of the two are to be judged most insnared into the Course of Separation, whether the Person keeping the High-way, or the poor Man wallowing in the polluted Mire, Crying upon his Neighbour to unite with him in that his miserable Estate? Est solatium miseris habere socios doloris, ('Tis Comfort to Persons in Misery to have Companions.) Have not this present Church thrown themselves over into the Ditch of Pollution, in complying with these dreadful Apostates of this and the former times? And, shall these be judged Separatists, who dare not, who cannot, and may not in Conscience follow their Example? Can such as join with, and strengthen them, be able to purge themselves from the Guilt and Judgements, which accompany this shameful Defection? For an Union here (so much cried up) without Debate, is the Brotherhood of Simeon and Levi: It is an Union in the Course of Sin and Wrath, and not in Truth and Duty" (pp. 206-207, emphasis added).

For more of this strong tonic get the whole book --
it is one of the strongest and clearest calls that we have ever seen for the church to repent of its covenant-breaking and backsliding and return to its first love at the corporate level (covenantal and constitutional).

The only drawback that needs to be noted, regarding Clarkson's Plain Reasons
, is that a few of the pages (the book being as rare as it is) in the only copy that we have been able to obtain for use as a master, are a little hard to read. Even so, most of the book is easily legible and contains the highest quality of Reformation thought regarding the subjects of which it deals. It is undoubtedly a major Reformation classic and should be studied by all those who are serious about seeing the destruction of the present tyranny (which is expressed in the modern civil and ecclesiastical Babylon erected by those that oppose the covenanted Reformation and the implementation of the Crown rights of King Jesus over the whole Earth!).

Promise Keepers in the Light of Scripture
A Reformed critique of Promise Keepers which answers this question: Is this non-denominational men's movement truly a work of the Holy Spirit bringing revival in our day or a dangerous lowering of the standard of truth? Includes an introduction to this movement, covers its basic assumptions, broader influences, theological content and practical effects. Basically demonstrates (in 56 pages) that Promise Keepers is a movement that dangerously and subtly lowers biblical standards regarding the doctrine, worship, government and discipline of Christ's church. It promotes secular psychology, independency, emotionalism, and numerous other heresies. The author is convinced that "the dangers inherent within the Promise Keepers movement far outweigh any good effects that might result from the emphasis on godliness and integrity." Furthermore Comin warns that this "movement promotes a hazardous ecumenism and a man-centered strategy for the promotion of godliness." He concludes, "(w)e must strongly urge that this movement be avoided by all those who take seriously the Great Commandment (Mark 12:30-31) and the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20)."

CUNNINGHAM, JOHN

The Ordinance of Covenanting (1843)
This book is considered by many as the classic work on covenanting. "The theology of Covenanting is here unfolded with a richness of scriptural research and a maturity of intellectual strength which would have made the grey eye of Peden glisten with delight. The treatise is a valuable addition to that solid theological literature of which the Reformed Presbyterian Church has produced repeated and enduring specimens, and stamps Mr. Cunningham as a distinguished disciple of the thoughtful and scriptural school of Mason and the Symingtons" (Presby Rev.,
(1844) as cited in The Treasury of the Scottish Covenant by Johnston). The author himself notes that "Prayer and the offering of praise are universally admitted to be duties of religion. The Scriptures announce a place among these for the exercise of solemn Covenanting... What the word of God unfolds concerning it, is addressed to the most resolute consideration of all, and is capable of engaging the most extensive and prolonged investigation. And yet, though none have found this subject, like all God's judgements, else than a great deep, still in meditating upon it, the ignorant have been brought to true knowledge, and the wise have increased in wisdom. 'The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant' (Ps. 25:14)... Mutual federal engagements, concerning things religious and civil, whether entered into merely by simple promise, or confirmed by the solemn oath, have been made from the highest antiquity to the present. The hostility to some such engagements, and also the proud disregard for their obligation, which have been evinced by some in all ages, demand a most careful examination into their nature and design... Furnished with the key of Scripture, approaching the subject, we are enabled to open the mysteries in which ignorance and prejudice had shut it up; and equipped with the armour of light shooting forth its heavenly radiance, in safety to ourselves we assail the darkness thrown around it, and behold the instant flight of the spirits of error which that darkness contains. Standing alone in beauteous attractions descended from heaven upon it, this service beckons us to approach it, and engages to connect extensive good with a proper attention to its claims. The observance, under various phases, is described in Scripture as an undisputed and indisputable reality." In this book Cunningham exhaustively covers the subject of covenanting in over 400 pages. He deals with the manner, duty and nature of covenanting (including personal and social covenanting), the obligation covenanting confers, how covenanting is provided for in the everlasting covenant, how it is adapted to the moral constitution of man and how it is according to the purposes of God. Numerous Divine examples are cited from Scripture and covenanting is shown to be one of the great privileges of the Christian life. An interesting chapter covers "Covenanting Enforced By the Grant of Covenant Signs and Seals;" which touches on circumcision, baptism, the Sabbath, the Priesthood, the new heart and the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Furthermore, this book demonstrates how God's approbation rested upon Covenanters in formers ages, how covenanting is predicted in prophecy, how it is recommended by the practice of the New Testament Church and at what seasons it is appropriate. The appendices touch on the relationship of covenanting to immoral and unscriptural civil governments, the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, the British constitution and the apostasy of the Revolution settlement. Additionally, Cunningham acknowledges that the true church is "bound by the obligations of the Church of God is past times" and is still obligated to pay what it has vowed to the Lord in those magnificent attainments of the second Reformation (the epitome of these attainments being embodied in the Solemn League and Covenant and the Westminster Standards). If you are interested in the ordinance of covenanting this is the most extensive treatment you will find in one book. It is a gold mine of Scriptural references and should be read at least once by everyone who calls upon the name of Christ.

Assurance, the Sacraments, and Arminianism are all dealt with, plus much more. Cunningham was Professor of Church History at New College in Edinburgh and committed to his colleagues, James Buchanan and James Bannerman, the Manuscripts for this work shortly before his death. His love for Reformation studies can be seen in the following quotation: "The Reformation from Popery in the sixteenth century was the greatest event, or series of events, that has occurred since the close of the Canon of Scriptures; and the men who are really entitled to be called the 'Leaders of the Reformation' have a claim to more respect and gratitude than any other body of uninspired men that have ever influenced or adorned the church." Some of the articles contained in this volume continue to be recognized as landmark studies in the theology of the Reformation.

DABNEY, ROBERT LEWIS

Discussions of Robert Lewis Dabney
Warfield called Dabney "the most conspicuous figure and the leading theological guide of the Southern Presbyterian Church, the most prolific theological writer that Church has as yet produced." These three volumes of articles and essays vindicate Warfield's statement. "This is not a book to be read and returned to the library shelf," states the well known Baptist minister Al Martin, "rather, as I have found to my own profit, it ought to be read, digested, and kept close at hand as a guide, companion and constant prod to us."

DABNEY, ROBERT LEWIS

Lectures in Systematic Theology
For the preparation of this volume, Dabney, who A.A. Hodge called "the best teacher of theology in the United States," was well suited. "While this exposition and vindication of creedal Christianity is akin to that of other reformed authors he has a literary force and an ability to stimulate thought which is distinctive. In his concern to see the truth understood and lived, in his wrestling with hard points and his mastery of detail, Dabney is second to none... Comparing Dabney's work to that of Charles Hodge, Dr. Morton H. Smith has written: 'Hodge gives an excellent, general statement of the Reformed Faith, yet Dabney adds something beyond the general treatment of most subjects. When his method of teaching is recalled, of sending his students to the standard texts on theology (including Hodge), and then adding his own observation on each doctrine in the class from which his Theology was derived, it is to be expected that this work would have a certain freshness to it, and this is just what is found'" (dust jacket).

DALE, JAMES W.

BAPTIZO (in the 4 volumes listed below)
Jerry Smith says that these volumes are "calculated to utterly shatter the widespread unfounded contemporary mythology surrounding the meaning and usage of the original Greek words underlying our English word baptism. Dale's original five volumes (bound in four) constitute the most massive, thorough, accurate, and authoritative study ever made of this word, examining all the known occurrences of baptizo. Absolutely a must reading on this controversial subject! Dale write in a clear and refreshingly irenic spirit... which will delight and inform scholar, student, and layman alike." Dale spent twenty years writing this study concerning the meaning and mode of baptism. He interacts with all the relevant literature on the subject up to his time, the first volume appearing in 1867 and the last in 1874. J.H. Thayer in his entry in his Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament (Zondervan, 1962), says of this study: "If I were to utter my first impression, I should break out in unfeigned admiration." Moreover, Thayer noted, concerning Classic Baptism, that "the theory that Baptizo expresses a definite act, 'mode and nothing but mode,' is shown to be pitiably helpless when applied to 'all the Greek literature.'" Dale definitely has had the last word on this subject thus far in history. You can save yourself a lot of time and trouble regarding Baptism and its meaning by picking up these unrivalled volumes. All four volumes listed below are softcovers and the first volume is actually two volumes bound into one.

DILELLA, FRED T.

(New!) Aletheia
Aletheia is the Greek word for TRUTH and this book is addressed specifically tois ekezetousi ten aletheian
(i.e. to those who are diligently seeking the truth). It explains why the modern church is in such a mess, why it seems so powerless, and why there is little visible unity (or even a general consensus as to what the Scripture teaches) among Christians in our contemporary setting. It also demonstrates that this has not always been the case by tracing the "footsteps of the flock" in opposition to the group that led to the major defections from Reformation attainments (which almost all contemporary churches have followed). This defection is shown to have brought God's covenant curse not only upon the church, but upon the defecting nations also -- and this curse still hangs over our (corporate) heads today. DiLella explains the basis of covenanting and proves from Scripture that covenants entered into by our forefathers (such as the Solemn League and Covenant) on behalf of the moral person (i.e. the constituted and ongoing government, whether civil or ecclesiastical; cf. David Scott's rare bound photocopy Distinctive Principles of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, pp. 70, 195f., 285f.) continue in force to this day. Furthermore, he shows how the Protesters (Covenanters) and their battle in the seventeenth century with the Resolutioners, is still impacting both the church and the state because of the very bonds that were transacted (in that day) between the Covenanting churches or nations and God. This is used to prove why God has a controversy with the backslidden modern church and with contemporary Christ rejecting nations, who have not repented of these national sins of "truce-breaking." DiLella pays special attention to the United States (as a covenant breaking nation) and those churches which trace their roots to the Reformation. In one section it is shown how America's British roots morally obligate the USA (and Canada) to the Solemn League and Covenant. In fact, it is noted that "in Boston, in 1644, the colonists with uplifted hands en masse publicly and solemnly swore their oath of subscription to the Solemn League and Covenant." Moreover the colonist's ministers often preached of this obligation and even the USA congress, as late as 1744, "officially announced and laid claim to all their rights, privileges, and provisions as English citizens." Anyone familiar with Scripture will understand how covenants bind posterity, even if they are just transactions between man and man, much less man and God, as these British covenants were (which still bind both the USA and Canada by virtue of our British roots). "Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto" (Gal. 3:15). This is further illustrated in the following quotation from the Reformed Presbyterian Catechism (by William Roberts, see the whole chapter "The Duty of Covenanting, and the Permanent Obligation of Religious Covenants" for more proof), "Another instance in which posterity is recognized in covenant obligation is found in Joshua 9:15. This covenant was made between the children of Israel and the Gibeonites. Between four and five hundred years after that time, the children of Israel are visited with a very severe famine, in the days of David. 2 Sam. 21:1. And it is expressly declared by the Lord that, "It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites." And at the same time, v. 2, that very covenant is recognized, and the breach of it is stated, as being the formal reason of the divine displeasure. Now, had it not been for this covenant, the extirpation of the Gibeonites would not have been imputed to Israel as a thing criminal; for they were comprehended in Canaanitish nations, which God had commanded them to root out" (pp. 139-140). The ongoing "moral personality" of the state (or church) is also illustrated throughout Scripture when national leaders (and prophets) confess the sins of their fathers and attribute these sins to the then present wrath of God upon the corporate entity [as with Judah's great Reforming king, Josiah, in 2 Chron. 34:21; see also Neh. 9:2, Dan. 9:16, etc.]). Of course the book deals with much more (including democracy vs. theocracy, tolerationism vs. the first commandment, unity vs. schism, establishments vs. voluntaryism, real subscription [to the WCF] vs. false and truncated subscription, pretended liberty of conscience vs. biblical liberty of conscience, the bride of Christ vs. the whore of Babylon, true worship vs. idolatry, Cromwell vs. the Covenanters, the revolution [of 1688] vs. covenanted uniformity, etc.). Originally written as a modern Covenanter's plea to a minister that was leaving the PCA, this is an easy reading, yet most valuable and practical, look at history and the truth of Christ as it comes to bear directly upon each one of us alive today. It is a one-of-a-kind, modern writing, overflowing with Scriptural and historic proof for each assertion, and we consider it one of the most important books written in this century!

DODSON, JIM

An Open Letter to an RPCNA Elder (1996)
A contemporary "first blast of the trumpet" against modern "Presbyterianism," by a covenanted Presbyterian. This is Dodson's testimony against the backsliding of the RPCNA. It summarizes the points of defection, documenting the steps taken from covenanted attainments, (directly from the RPCNA's own standards). This letter also implicates many of the other backslidden and compromised "Presbyterian" denominations [e.g. OPC, PCA, etc.], who continue their decline from Reformation attainments in many of the same areas as the RPCNA (though the RPCNA has remained more faithful than most in a few areas, one example being acappella exclusive Psalmody). In this context Dodson deals with church issues, schism and separation, worship, covenanting, civil government, Christian liberty, and much more. In short, this is one of the most powerful modern examples of true Christian scholarship that is available today, exhibiting once again that a faithful witness will not lie. To understand the covenanted Reformation it is also most helpful to read over the National Covenant and the Solemn League and Covenant (found in the back of the Free Presbyterian edition of the Westminster Confession of Faith). All the Westminster Divines, the national Parliaments and many of the people of the three nations (Scotland, England, and Ireland in the mid 17th-century), covenanting (with each other and with the Lord) for national Reformation and uniformity, swore a solemn oath to uphold the truth of the Reformed religion found in these morally binding documents (and the Westminster Standards). These perpetually binding covenants, along with the Auchensaugh Renovation (1712), are an integral part of point four in the six points of the "Terms of Ministerial and Christian Communion in the Reformed Presbyterian Church," and are defended in the "Explanation and Defense of the Terms of Communion..." (by the Reformed Presbytery). All six points are also listed at the back of the "Act, Declaration, and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation" (by the Reformed Presbytery). These six points form a bedrock foundation of true Reformation, which Satan constantly assails, and many believe they (the truths contained in these points) will lead the way (by God's grace) to the coming world reformation prophesied in Scripture (Isa. 2:2-4, Ezek. 47:1-12, etc.).

DOUGLAS, JAMES

Strictures on Occasional Hearing
An inquiry into Song 1:7, "Why should I be as one that turneth aside by the flocks of thy companions?" This book sets out to demonstrates the proposition that one should not hear the public preaching of those he can not take communion with (i.e. it proposes a ban on occasionally hearing those with whom you can not maintain organic fellowship with). The implications contained in this truth are immense; especially when one has adopted the Biblical doctrine of close communion and is set upon upholding the covenanted reformation. The duty to separation and to true visible unity are all encompassed here. A review of this book, written in 1818, notes that the "treatise may be viewed as a complete repository of all that has yet been said on the subject." It is filled with Scriptural, as well as historical testimony, and is a welcome tonic to the weak and compromising books of our day that so often sacrifice the truth of the altar of some other man made expediency (such as unity for political or ecclesiastical advantage). For as the introduction notes, "It is the revealed will of God, and not saintship, which is the only rule of a visible profession." That Christians exist in other denominations is not denied, but that they are faithful to the covenanted reformation (already historically obtained) is. The arguments set forth here are reminiscent of those found in Rutherford's Due Right of Presbyteries. If you are struggling with questions related to separation, the unity of the visible church, close communion, etc. this book may be exactly what you've been looking for. A massive appendix also lays out the historical testimony concerning this matter.

FAIRBAIRN, PATRICK

The Interpretation of Prophecy
This is Fairbairn's best-known work. Like all his writings it is characterized by a deep familiarity with the text and language of Scripture, careful and thoroughly-researched scholarship, and a sane and balanced approach to exegesis. Here we have "the mature reflections of a lifetime of devoted scholarly study of the subject of prophecy. Part one deals with the principles of interpretation. Part two applies these principles to matters related to the kingdom of Christ (and its victory), Antichrist and the beast (and their doom), the millennium, the mystery of iniquity, and much more. If you want to know, from a practical standpoint, why in our day so-called Protestants are signing compromising agreements with Roman Catholics, why there is so much disunity and defection in the church, why age old standards are being dropped, and why their is general turmoil all about, this book will certainly help to give you the clear and sobering answer.

FAIRBAIRN, PATRICK

The Prophetical Future of the Church and Kingdom of Christ, in their Relation to the Character, Working, and Fate of the Antichristian Apostasy
Excerpted from the book The Interpretation of Prophecy this book gives us a fascinating look at what the bible has to say about the period in which we live. It focuses on one of our great enemies, Antichrist, and exhibits the manner in which he is portrayed in "Daniel both Typically and Antitypically;" "as represented by our Lord and his Apostles;" "as represented in the Apocalypse;" and in regard "to its Overthrow and Final Doom." A fine short introduction to classic Protestant Historicist Postmillennialism and a good way to whet your appetite for the major release (sometime next year, D.V.) of David Steele's Notes on the Apocalypse, which should prove to be one of the most important books on eschatology to be published in quit some time.

FISHER, JAMES

Edwards, Whitefield and the True Nature of Revival (1742)
Though this is a older item it bears close scrutiny today, for it deals with what would now be called Charismatic excesses and shallow revivalism. It also brings some very pointed charges against George Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards. Most importantly, it shows the great difference that exists between the superficial and shallow concepts of revivalistic sensationalism and the covenanted Reformation attainments of previous centuries. As with the modern "laughers, babblers, and rollers" these older "enthusiasts" tended to belittle Christ's church and its government (*jure divino* Presbyterianism), biblically regulated worship, the importance of sound doctrine and confessions, Christ's Kingship over the nations and the rule of His law (as opposed to boundless toleration, sectarianism and pluralism), and many of the other points that have attended older Reformations which were faithful to Scripture. This title also demonstrates how those who are not content with Biblical methods confound Christ and Antichrist (ecclesiastically, in regard to the continuing moral person and the constitutional authority of the visible church), promote latitudinarian compromises and sinful ecumenicity, and generally do (though they themselves may be Christians) much damage to the visible church and the cause of Christ.

FLEMING, ROBERT, Jr.

(NEW!) The Rise and Fall of Papacy, The Import of God's Dealing with Men of Earth, Etc. (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.

GILLESPIE, GEORGE

Aaron's Rod Blossoming; or, the Divine Ordinance of Church Government Vindicated
The remainder of the title reads: "So as the Present Erastian Controversy Concerning the Distinction of Civil and Ecclesiastical Government, Excommunication and Suspension, is Fully Debated and Discussed, from the Holy Scriptures, for the Jewish and Christian Antiquities, from the Consent of Later Writers, from the True Nature and Rights of Magistracy, and from the Groundlessness of the Chief Objections made Against the Presbyterial Government, in Point of a Domineering Arbitrary Unlimited Power." In short, this book deals with the biblical view of the separation of church and state, and is especially pertinent concerning the modern political climate, in which the old Erastian tree of civil ecclesiastical interference is growing strong and spreading much poisonous fruit. As with just about everything else Gillespie wrote, this book has been widely recognized as THE classic in its field. Three major sections cover "Of the Jewish Church Government;" "Of Christian Church Government;" and "Of Excommunication from the Church, and of Suspension from the Lord's Table." Lachman, in his Preface writes, "It presents the classic Reformed point of view, one now little heard and perhaps less understood. Gillespie writes carefully and clearly, in many respects resembling the better know John Owen in the clarity and power of his reasoning." Bannerman states, "This famous treatise is unquestionably the most able, learned, systematic, and complete work on the Erastian controversy in existence. It deserves, and will repay, the most careful study" (The Church of Christ, vol. 2., p. 432). Beattie (Memorial Volume, p. xxxvi, 1879) called this book, "the ablest plea for Presbytery ever made."

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. Concerning this book Coldwell writes, "It is an exhaustive defense of that Reformation principle that it is God's right to order the institutions of worship in His church.... The book first appeared on the eve of the second Reformation, sparked by an attempt by Charles I to impose Anglo-Catholic worship forms on Presbyterian Scotland. It fell like a thunderclap, silencing any argument, except that of force, against which the Scots rose up in a defensive war. The book was never answered. Although removed from us by more than 350 years, this book is still a powerful argument against modern liturgical renewal movements. It also has application to that baser error of the Church Growth Movement, which has reproduced the expressions of modern entertainment and showmanship in God's worship, and subjected His institutions and ordinances to the rules of expediency, marketing and caprice, loosing the church from that biblical mooring, Sola Scriptura" (back cover of Naphtali Press, hardcover, reprinted 1993. Naphtali's hardcover edition has been edited to reflect contemporary spelling, punctuation, and usage. Valuable indices and introductions have also been added. If you don't mind paying the extra money this hardcover edition is definitely superior to our photocopy version, for the editor (Chris Coldwell) has done a splendid job of making this book much more understandable to the modern reader. The hardcover should be ordered directly from Naphtali Press, [P.O. Box 141084, Dallas, TX, 75214]. It retails for $49.95 US funds.). 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 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 book ever written on biblical worship, an extensive and thorough masterpiece that leaves no stone unturned. For advanced study only. (Rare Bound Photocopy)

Here we have the question stated (regarding liberty of conscience), the middle (or biblical) way between Popish tyranny and Schismatizing liberty approved, and also confirmed from Scripture, with the testimonies of Divines, yea of whole churches added to vindicate Christ's kingship (over the idolatry of the rule of an ill-informed, sinful conscience sitting in judgement upon the truth of the Word of God). The chief arguments of exception used in (Roger Williams) The Bloudy Tenet, The Compassionate Samaritane, M.S. to A.S. etc. are examined herein and Gillespie also deals with many of the thorny questions related to the abiding validity of the Old Testament judicial laws. Eight distinctions are added for qualifying and clearing the whole matter. In conclusion, a moving brotherly appeal is addressed to the five Apologists (Independents at the Assembly) for choosing accommodation rather then toleration. This is classic Scottish (covenanted) Presbyterianism at its best, a work that can be read over and over with increasing profit! This exceedingly rare essay is not found in Gillespie's Works or The Presbyterian Armoury, however it is also available on two cassettes for $4.77.

GILLESPIE, GEORGE

Notes of Debates and Proceedings of the Assembly of Divines and Other Commissioners at Westminster. March 1664 to 1645 (1846 edition)
"It condenses, and with considerable skill, the purport of long wordy debates, giving their very essence in hard criticism on the Scriptures in the original Greek and Hebrew, as lending support to either side in the controversies about articles of belief and of Church government" wrote Burton (as cited in the Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 304). Taken from volume two of Gillespie's Works.

GILLESPIE, GEORGE

A Treatise of Miscellany Questions Wherein many Useful Cases of Conscience are Discussed and Resolved, for the Satisfaction of Those Who Desire Nothing More than to Search and Find Out Precious Truths in the Controversies of these Times (1844, reprinted from the 1649 edition)
"These times" mentioned at the end of the above title refers the reader to some of the most prolific and productive seasons, thus far in history, for an abundance of written works that have been blessed of God. Bannerman calls this "an exceedingly important and useful book, discussing a wide range of topics..." (The Church of Christ, vol. 2., p. 433). Various questions are handled in 22 chapters. These questions range from issues related to church and civil government, to questions related to personal piety, such as Christ's Lordship and assurance of salvation. Separation, covenanting, uniformity, hermeneutics, infant baptism, and the free offer of the Gospel comprise some of the other topics discussed. Taken from volume two of Gillespie's Works.

GOUGE, WILLIAM

Of Domestical Duties (1622)
Gouge, a celebrated Puritan Divine, was a member of the Westminster Assembly and Darling, in his Cyclopaedia Bibliographica
, calls him "eminently learned and a preacher of great influence." Many consider this one of the best books ever written on the family -- it is a Puritan classic in the one of the areas where the Puritan_s were the acknowledged masters. Ptacek, in his Family Worship: Biblical Basis, Historical Reality, Current Need (pp. 46-47)notes that "by 1599, the Geneva Bible, ...added many 'Calvinist annotations for household use" (Bremer, The Puritan Experiment, p. 12). A number of the notes argued for family worship and instruction by the head of the household. Puritanism in the British Isles is known as an effort to continue the Reformation of the church in the area of worship and church government. However, the Puritans also sought to reform the family life according to Biblical principles... as a result of their efforts they 'were creators of the English Christian marriage, the English Christian family, and the English Christian home' (A Quest for Godliness, p. 260). For the Puritans, family life was part of God's calling to a holy life. Indeed, it was among the most important of callings. In his very influential Of Domestical Duties... Gouge affirmed that ' a conscionable performance of household duties in regard to the end and fruit thereof, may be accounted a publicke worke. Yea, if domesticall duties be well and thoroughly performed, they will bee even enough to take up a man's whole time.'" Gouge also promoted the Reformation view that family was a "little church" and the "seminary" for those public and private duties and responsibilities greater maturity in the faith brings. This massive masterpiece includes eight eminently helpful and instructive treatises: 1. An Exposition of that part of Scripture out of which Domestical Duties are raised; 2. Duties between Man and Wife; 3. Particular Duties of Wives; 4. Particular Duties of Husbands; 5. Duties of Children; 6. Duties of Parents; 7. Duties of Servants; 8. Duties of Masters. If you are interested in family matters it is likely that you will not find a better book! 714 pages in length.

GUTHRIE, WILLIAM

The Christian's Great Interest
Carslaw, in his Six Martyrs of the Scottish Reformation, writes, "William Guthrie is frequently referred to as one of the first fruits of his (Samuel Rutherford's) ministry." During his ministry at Fenwick, Ayrshire, from 1650 to 1664, one contemporary remarked that "he converted and confirmed many thousand souls, and was esteemed the greatest practical preacher in Scotland." All of Guthrie's teaching and pastoral experience were poured into this work, his only book. The remarkable fact that it has gone through more than eighty editions and been translated into several languages testifies to its value. Pulling a copy of Guthrie's book from his pocket, John Owen declared "That author I take to have been one of the greatest divines that ever wrote." Furthermore, concerning this great treasure, Owen also proclaimed that "there was more divinity in that volume than in all his own works" (Antithesis II:4, p. 15). Thomas Chalmers described it as "the best book I ever read." It was written, its author says, for those who "have neither much money to spend upon books, not much time to spare in reading." It describes in a simple, clear and attractive style what it means to be a Christian, and how to become one. Guthrie was a master spiritual physician, and his wisdom appears on every page of this outstanding work (adapted from the back cover). Chapter four is especially interesting in that it deals with "Personal Covenanting With God in Christ." Another in the Puritan Paperbacks series from Banner of Truth.

HALL, DAVID, & JOSEPH HALL, eds.

Paradigms in Polity: Classic Readings in Reformed and Presbyterian Church Government
This book is an anthology of primary source documents and representative writings on these issues (worship, discipline, preaching, etc.) from the history of the church. Included are Knox's Book of Discipline, Melville's Second Book of Discipline, the Westminster Assemblies Directory for Church Government, and excerpts from Rutherford's Due Right of Presbyteries, Samuel Miller's The Ruling Elder, Charles Hodge's, The Church and Its Polity, Dabney's Theories of the Eldership, and on and on. This book is a treasure; it belongs in every church library, and every pastor's study... As this volume so plainly shows, God has not left that option (i.e. government by the word of man) open to us. The church of Christ must be governed in the way the Bible requires, by the Word of Christ. Scripture does not give us suggestions for church government, but rather an authoritative word. Insensitive to our feelings, the Bible establishes a form of church government jure divino. In a day when fads and foolishness buffet the church constantly, from house church movement to seeker friendly variety hours, we need the wisdom in this book. (Doug Wilson, Credenda Agenda, vol. 7, #4, p.31). The book is divided into five major sections: 1. Historical Foundation of Church Polity; 2. Continental Europe and Reformation Polities; 3. Dutch Reformed Polities; 4. Scottish and British Polities; and 5. North American Polities.

HAYWARD, S. and S. PIKE

(NEW!) Religious Cases of Conscience Answered in an Evangelical Manner... to Which is Added The Spiritual Companion; or, the Professing Christian Tried at the Bar of God's Word; and Character of the Happy Man (1866)
Answers 31 questions and deals with 30 cases of conscience. Written to "remove the doubts of the timorous Christian, quicken him on his way to Zion, to guard against presumptuous hopes, and promote the life of religion in the soul... to destroy the vain confidence of a sinner, without disturbing the peace, and discouraging the minds of those who are the real followers of Jesus." Questions dealt with include: "How shall we distinguish between the workings of natural affection and real exercise of grace in religious duties?"; "What is faith? How does it differ from hope, love, repentance, etc.?"; "How may times of family and closet duty be best regulated to the glory of God, our own comfort, and the advantage of those about us?"; and "How may a Christian know that he grows in grace?". More controversial questions are also dealt with, such as: "How may we distinguish betwixt that which is moral, and that which is typical, or merely ceremonial, in the books of Moses? And consequently, which of these precepts are still in force, and which are those long since abrogated?" and "A serious person who scruples to comply with the usual practice of playing at cards, desires to know whether these scruples arise from a needless tenderness of conscience, or from the faithful monitions of the Spirit of God?" A real feast of practical and doctrinal Calvinistic counsel. Makes a great gift for introducing friends and relatives to some easily digestible, nicely portioned pieces of theological meat. 444 pages.

HETHERINGTON, WILLIAM

History of the Westminster Assembly
This book is probably the best easy reading historical account published concerning this unsur­passed Assembly. The Puritan history leading up to the Assembly (which this book takes a in-depth look at) is especially important and not only set the context for what became the major debates among the ministers present, but even dictated who was selected to this august body of scholars. Civil wars, national upheavals, emigration to the "new world" and a host of other epoch making events surrounded this momentous period of history. These debates and their resolutions have defined and directed Chris­tian thought and national cul­tures ever since their original ratification. Hetherington covers the period from 1531 to 1662. Many con­sider this era a historical high water mark for doctrinal and practical precision. Also included is a chapter on the theological productions of the Westmin­ster Assembly and six valuable appendices (one containing six biographical notices of the Scottish Commissioners including Rutherford, Gillespie, Henderson and Baillie). Indispensable for understanding the work accomplished by the Westminster Assembly, Presbyterian and Independent history, Cromwell and much more. Limited stock remaining. When our softcover stock is depleted we will substitute a "bound photocopy" edition in its place, at the same low price, unless you instruct us otherwise.

HENDERSON, ALEXANDER

The National (1638) and Solemn League and Covenant (1643)
The National Covenant, a Scottish Presbyterian document, primarily composed by Alexander Henderson and Archibald Johnstone of Wariston. It was composed in opposition to the "policies of Charles I. Written in the context of the riots resulting from the imposition of 'Laud's Liturgy' in 1637 and the King's refusal to receive the petitions of supplicants for redress, the National Covenant was an appeal... to defend the true Reformed religion, and to decline the recent innovations in worship decreed by the King." (Dictionary of Scottish Church History, 620). Furthermore, it was "an assertion by the Kirk of freedom from royal or state control, a personal oath of allegiance to Jesus Christ, the only Head of the Church, the King of kings, and a dedication of life to him. It stemmed directly from God's covenant of grace, was in the succession of those earlier bonds the Scots had made with God for his people's defence and deliverance, and represented a call in the Pauline sense to 'conduct themselves a citizens.'" (Idem.) This covenant (and the Solemn League and Covenant described below) are still binding on all true Presbyterians and the hearty and steadfast renewal of these faithful documents would constitute a mighty means toward modern reformation, seeing that much of the contemporary church and all modern states have set themselves "against the Lord, and against his anointed" (Ps. 2:2); excepting, maybe, the African state of Zambia, which seems to be presently reforming, but not yet covenanted to the Lord. The Solemn League and Covenant was first of all a religious covenant and secondly a civil league. "After noting that they had one king and one Reformed religion and expressing their concern about the estate of both the Church and kingdom of England and Scotland, the signatories swear to preserve 'the Reformed Religion in the Church of Scotland' and the Reformation of religion in England and to bring the churches to the 'nearest Conjunction and Uniformity in Religion', confession, government, and worship. They also bound themselves to extirpate popery and prelacy as well as superstition, heresy and whatever is contrary to sound doctrine... to bring to trial all who hinder such reformation of religion or divide the king from his people and to continue such 'to all Posterity" and not suffer themselves to be withdrawn from 'this blessed Union and Conjunction" (Ibid, pp. 786-789). This covenant gave teeth to the work of the Westminster Assembly and united three nations under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It was publicly taken by the Westminster Divines and the English parliament on September 25th. "On the 9th of October the king issued a proclamation from Oxford, denouncing this document as 'in truth nothing else but a traitorous and seditious combination against us and the established religion of this kingdom;' straitly charging and commanding all his loving subjects, upon their allegiance, 'that they presume not to take the said seditious and traitorous Covenant.' And at last an order was issued by the Parliament, in March 1644, commanding the Covenant to be taken throughout the kingdom of England by all persons above the age of 18 years; which order was accompanied by an exhortation prepared by the Assembly of Divines. In Scotland, as soon as information was received of what had taken place in London, the Committee of Estates ordered the Covenant to be subscribed by all ranks and conditions of people, on penalty of the confiscation of property, or such other punishment as his Majesty and the parliament might resolve to inflict" (Hetherington, History of the Westminster Assembly ($8.99), pp. 127-128). Furthermore, Hetherington goes on to call this bond "the wisest, the sublimest, and the most sacred document ever framed by uninspired men" (p. 134). If you want to understand Presbyterianism these two covenant documents offer as much light as any others we know of. They are inextricably linked to the Westminster standards, historical testimony and the covenanted reformation. Some still believe that they will once again be renewed on an international basis near the beginning of the millennium, in preparation for the days when the "earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea" (Isa. 11:9). With this sentiment we wholeheartedly concur!

HISLOP, ALEXANDER

The Two Babylons or the Papal Worship Proved to Be the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife (1916)
Contrasts the distinctive characteristics of the truth with the lies and idolatry of the Roman antichrist. Chapters cover the "Objects of Worship," "Festivals," "Doctrine and Discipline," "Rites and Ceremonies," "Religious Orders," and the development of the two systems considered "Historically and Prophetically." The prophetic section is especially interesting and shows how far Protestants have moved into Rome's camp concerning eschatology. The whole book, in fact, shows in a most explicit manner how much Romanism has infected the modern Protestant churches and their thinking. And as Hislop notes, "it has been known all along that Popery was baptised Paganism; but God is now making it manifest, that the Paganism which Rome has baptised is, in all its essential elements, the very Paganism which prevailed in the ancient literal Babylon, when Jehovah opened before Cyrus the two-leaved gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron." A welcome rebuke to those who would offer the right hand of fellowship to the "beast from the sea." (Hardcover)

HOUSTON, THOMAS

(NEW!) Unity and Uniformity in the Church (1881)
This item lays out the case for unity among churches, proving its assertions from: (1.) throughout Scripture; (2.) from our Lord's declaring His will both in precept and prayer; (3.) from apostolic practise; and (4.) from the covenanted Reformation's "Solemn League and Covenant" which lead to the production of the Westminster standards. Houston notes that in the Apostolic church "the government of the church was one and common wherever churches were planted. It was Presbyterian, and neither Prelatic, a system of monarchial despotism, nor Congregational, a system of popular democracy." This biblical and Presbyterian uniformity was considered the apostolic, visible and doctrinal manifestation of the scriptural injunction to "one Lord, one faith, (and) one baptism." Houston also points out that "the only true and safe way of union is based on the platform of Scriptural uniformity; while that which is framed on allowing diversity in doctrine, and differences in government and worship, is a mere human contrivance, and its effect is to sanction and perpetuate divisions (which is to sanction schism under the false pretence of unity--RB), and to mar the prospect of an ultimate happy union in the church of Christ." Biblical union and uniformity is shown to be based on "agreement in doctrine, worship, discipline, and government." Moreover, the author contends that, "this is to be constantly sought after by men united in mind and heart, pledged to God and to one another; it is to be externally manifested, and to be diligently labored for, that it may be generally and universally prevalent. It is never to be viewed as impracticable. This was the main design of the convocation of the Westminster Assembly." The eschatological aspect of visible unity is also noticed, shedding valuable light on such postmillennial strongholds as, "The watchmen on the walls of Zion shall see eye to eye, they shall lift up the voice together, and together shall they sing" (Isa. 52:8) and "The Lord shall be King over all the earth; in that day there shall be one Lord, and His name one" (Zech. 14:9). This book is full of faithful encouragement and is one of the best introductions to this topic we have seen.

HUTCHISON, MATTHEW

(NEW!) The Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland: Its Origin and History, 1680-1876
This is the only book-length history covering the period after 1680 (to 1876), when the majority Synod of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland merged with the Free Church of Scotland. The history after 1822, when the Auchensaugh Renovation was removed as a term of communion, merely chronicles the wholesale backsliding of the church and eventual split in 1863; from which a majority emerged which joined with the Free Church of Scotland in 1876. A remnant of the minority of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland still exists, however they never returned to the original position of the church from which it began to depart in 1822 (with the removal of the Auchensaugh bond -- which bond is the Auchensaugh Renovation
listed under the Reformed Presbytery in this catalogue). This book is a fine illustration of the "footsteps of the flock," (as seen in the Protesters [paleopresbyterians] and their spiritual posterity), during the period of which it deals, while at the same time serving as a clear warning to those who have declined from Reformation attainments (i.e. the Resolutioners [neopresbyterians] and those who continue their deformation of the faith). "By the National Covenant," notes Thomas Sproull, "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." Understanding where the faithful covenanted servants of Christ have been historically, not only helps individuals to separate between truly constituted churches and the those that are false (because they have constitutionally backslidden from Reformation attainments); but is a necessary component to the keeping the fifth commandment, as the Reformed Presbytery has pointed out: " Nor otherwise can a Christian know the time or place of his birth, or the persons whom God commands him to honor as his father and mother, than by uninspired testimony; and the same is true of his covenant obligation, if baptized in infancy. Against all who ignorantly or recklessly reject or oppose history as a bond of fellowship, in the family, in the state, but especially in the church, we thus enter our solemn and uncompromising protest" (Excerpted from: The Act, Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation... by the Reformed Presbytery, pp. 177-178 -- a SWRB rare bound photocopy [1761], reprinted 1995 from the 1876 edition). This edition of The Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland: Its Origin and History, 1680-1876 also contains an introductory note by William Goold (the editor of John Owen's Works). In introducing this book Goold writes, "This volume may claim attention as supplying an essential link in the ecclesiastical history of Scotland. It is the history of that body of men who adhered to the civil part of the Second Reformation, according to which Presbytery was established and recognized by the State between 1638 and 1649... The Church of which this volume is a history took its rise in its distinctive character at this period, and on the ground that it could not, while acknowledging the relief from oppression which the Revolution (of 1688) afforded, acquiesce in the arrangements made by the State for the recognition of the Church and the due exercise of its authority within its own spiritual domain (because the so-called 'glorious revolution' was Erastian to the core and also denied the previous national covenant engagements--RB).... Apart, however, from their testimony in regard to this evil and danger, resulting from a Civil Government in which Prelacy was continued as an essential element, those who dissented from the Revolution Settlement, and from whom the Reformed Presbyterian Church arose, were animated with an earnest zeal for the maintenance of religious ordinances. They strove to exist as a Church, and how far they succeeded, and what difficulties they had to surmount in the attempt, is the interesting story recorded in this volume" (pp. v-vi). In summary, this book (of 450 pages) is an one-of-a-kind chronicle of an integral part of the history of the battle for the "Crown Rights and Royal Prerogatives of the Lord Jesus Christ."

JAMESON, WILLIAM

(NEW!) Nazianzeni Querela Et Votum Justum: The Fundamentals of the Hierarchy examin'd and disprov'd (1697)
Walker includes this among the "principal works" and best defences of Presbyterian church government, against Episcopalian attacks. Speaking of this book, among other foremost Presbyterian works of this period, he notes that they were all "learned and able books, all of them debating the point both on grounds of Scripture and ecclesiastical antiquity." Furthermore, he continues, writing, "Those of Jamieson claim a special notice. Their author was blind; so far as appears, he was born blind. Yet he was a thorough scholar (no excuse here for those of us who
can see--RB), and in particular was well acquainted both with the Latin and Greek Fathers. His works are... as a whole... among the best of their class, and contain an effective defence of Presbyterian Church government." Johnston calls Jameson "one of the acutest and most learned defenders of the Presbyterian system" (Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 383). This is one of the most devastating scholarly replies to the antichristian hierarchy of Episcopalianism (and Romanism too!) ever produced. Thoroughly scriptural, it also contains a treasure chest of quotations from the early church fathers (right up through to the recent [1600's] Reformers of Jameson's day); though Jameson readily proclaims, "Let the Sword of God (They're Jerome's words in primum Haggaei) cut off every thing that men, without the Authority of Testimony of the Scriptures, have devised and pretend as if they had it by Apostolic Tradition. Let all such things be broken in Pieces called Nehustan, and, finally, sacrificed to Truth and Peace." Exceedingly rare, 240 pages.

KERR, JAMES (editor)

(NEW!) The Covenants and the Covenanters: Covenants, Sermons, and Documents of the Covenanted Reformation
The Reformed Presbytery (in 1879) has well noted the following incongruity that is still with us today, "We heard 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'" (A Short Vindication of Our Covenanted Reformation
, p. 20). This book should go a long way to remedying the above noted ignorance and hypocrisy among those who now call upon the name of the Lord -- especially those who claim a Reformation heritage and are still open to further growth -- as it spells out in no uncertain terms what lay at the heart of the second Reformation. Moreover, these covenants (landmarks of the Lord) stand as beacons to all nations of their continuing moral duty to bind themselves to Christ (first commandment) or suffer His avenging wrath (Ps. 2). And make no mistake about it, the Lord will utterly destroy all those who quarrel with His covenant bonds, whether individuals, churches or nations -- the mystery of iniquity will fall! The prefatory note to this magnificent volume well describes its value: "The Covenants, Sermons, and Papers in this volume carry the readers back to some of the brightest periods in Scottish history. They mark important events in that great struggle by which these three kingdoms (England, Scotland and Ireland--RB) were emancipated from the despotisms of Pope, Prince, and Prelate, and an inheritance of liberty secured for these Islands of the Sea. The whole achievements of the heroes of the battlefields are comprehended under that phrase of Reformers and Martyrs, 'The Covenanted Work of Reformation.' The attainments of those stirring times were bound together by the Covenants, as by rings of gold. The Sermons here were the product of the ripe thought of the main actors in the various scenes--men of piety, learning, and renown. Hence, the nature, objects , and benefits of personal and national Covenanting are exhibited in a manner fitted to attract to that ordinance the minds and hearts of men. The readers can well believe the statements of Livingstone, who was present at several ceremonies of covenant-renovation: 'I never saw such motions from the Spirit of God. I have seen more than a thousand persons all at once lifting up their hands, and the tears falling down from their eyes.' In the presence of the defences of the Covenants as deeds, by these preachers, the baseless aspersions of novelists and theologians fade out into oblivion. True Christians must, as they ponder these productions, be convinced that the Covenanters were men of intense faith and seraphic fervour, and their own hearts will burn as they catch the heavenly flame. Members of the Church of Christ will be stirred to nobler efforts for the Kingdom of their Lord as they meditate on the heroism of those who were the 'chariots of Israel and the horsemen thereof;' and they will behold with wonder that 'to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time (the present great apostasy--RB), from the face of the serpent.' And Statesman will discover how princes, parliaments, and peoples united in the hearty surrender of themselves to the Prince of the kings and kingdoms of the earth; and will be aroused to promote that policy of Christian Statesmanship which, illustrating the purpose and will of God, the Father, shall liberate Parliaments and nations from the bonds of false religions, and assert for them those liberties and honours which spring from the enthronement of the Son of man, and King of kings and Lord of lords. This volume of documents of olden times is sent out on a mission of Revival of Religion, personal and national, in the present times. It would do a noble work if it helped to humble classes and masses, and led them to return as one man to that God in covenant from Whom all have gone so far away. A national movement, in penitence and faith, for the repeal of the Acts Recissory and the recognition of the National Covenants would be as life from the dead throughout the British Empire. The people and rulers of these dominions shall yet behold the brilliancy of the Redeemer's crowns; and shall, by universal consent, exalt Him who rules in imperial majesty over the entire universe of God. For, 'The seventh angel sounded, and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ." Here we have some of the most moving sermons ever addressed to a people and their nations, given before the most solemn of occasions -- national covenant renewal! Alexander Henderson, Andrew Cant, Joseph Caryl, Edmond Calamy and a host of other Puritan Covenanters (even the turncoat Independent Philip Nye) are included here in easy to read modern (1895) type. Anyone interested in seeing the royal prerogatives of King Jesus once again trumpeted throughout the nations, on a national and international scale, needs this book -- for these men "were setting up landmarks by which the city of God will be known at the dawn of the millennial day" (Thomas Sproull cited in the Reformed Presbytery's Short Vindication, p. 38). 442 pages with illustrations.

KING, ROBERT

(NEW!) The Covenanters in the North; or, Sketches of the Rise and Progress, North of the Grampians, or the Great Religious and Social Movement of Which the Covenant of 1638 was the Symbol (1846)
"The Annals of the Covenant are an heirloom of the Scottish people, full of noble examples and associations in all that is heroic and devout, both in doing and suffering... Besides furnishing notices of these and others of whom the glimpses are less frequent (in other Covenanter histories, such as Andrew Cant the 'Apostle of the Covenant' and James Fraser of Brea--RB) our local annals supply chapters in the history of the Covenant, peculiar to the only part of the country which met its first advances with the most determined opposition of its learning and its chivalry -- furnishing at once themes for the student of great principles, and scenes for the lovers of the picturesque, more rare in the history of the south... The reader will find that Mr. King has availed himself of many sources of information which, till lately, were difficult of access, or altogether sealed; and that his work contains much information which is to be found nowhere else in a popular form," (John Kennedy in the Preface). A stirring history book of 400 pages.

A Spectacle Unto God (The Life and Death of Christopher Love)
This book tells the story of this little-known Puritan/Covenanter, and his early death, at the hands of Cromwell's forces, for his religious and political convictions. Love was a close friend of Thomas Manton and admired by Richard Baxter. Packer says of this book, "Stunning and heart-wrenching is the blend of sweetness, peace, love, and hope in nightmarish circumstances that (this story) contains. This is a poignant account of victorious faith that will stir every reader."

KITCHEN, JOHN

How Must We Reprove, That We May Not Partake of Other Men's Sins (1661, reprinted 1844)
Deals with the question in the title as it pertains to the church, the nation, and especially the family. An important sermon dealing with an almost forgotten duty for all Christians that seek to remain faithful to Christ. Shows how "(b)y delightful society and company with wicked men to countenance them, so we become partakers of their sins: "But now I have written unto you, not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person" (1 Cor. 5:11,13). Also demonstrates that "(i)f we would not partake of the sins of others, we must reprove the sins of others (Lev. 19; Ezk. 33:7-9). So the apostle expressly; (Eph. 5:11;) intimating that you do certainly approve them, if you do not reprove them. Contains an interesting aside that provides an answer to the philosophical questions raised by the existence of evil. Strong teaching.

KLICKA, CHRISTOPHER (and Gregg Harris)

The Right Choice: The Incredible Failure of Public Education and the Rising Hope of Home Schooling (An Academic, Historical, Practical, and Legal Perspective)
This is an indispensable weapon in the contemporary cultural warfare raging over the "Crown Rights of King Jesus." The establishment of ungodly education is a quintessential point in Satan's frontal attack upon the Godly seed in the modern world today. Much of the sin and destruction prevalent in our society can be traced back (as a second cause) through the devil's success in keeping Christ out of the daily education of children. Klicka, Senior Counsel of the Home School Legal Defense Association (and a home schooling father) shows why this is so. This new hard-hitting expose of the failure of public education uncloaks the corruption, craziness, greed, and general incompetence of the present pagan public school system which is daily turning to occult/new-age philosophies for guidance. Furthermore, this book analyzes home schooling by documenting and discussing its benefits, academic success, biblical basis, how-tos, constitutional rights and many other pertinent related areas, all in an easy to read format! It has been heralded as "the new standard bearer of books on home schooling," containing comprehensive coverage and Godly insight for the beginner, the inquirer, and the "old" pro.

LANDIS, ROBERT W.

The Doctrine of Original Sin, as Received and Taught by the Churches of the Reformation Stated and Defended, and the Error of Dr. Hodge in Claiming that this Doctrine Recognizes the Gratuitous Imputation of Sin, Pointed Out and Refuted (1844)
Considered a classic in its field, this book of over 550 pages takes on Charles Hodge and his views concerning original sin. The author states that the "doctrine concerning Imputation and Original Sin" as taught "for many years past, in the Theological School at Princeton" is a "radical departure from... recognized Augustinian theology, or Calvinism." The author also notes "that the difference in this issue is fundamental to evangelical doctrine. The design of the present tractate, therefore, is to furnish a thorough historical, theological, and exegetical discussion of the essential points which this issue involves." Furthermore, Landis writes (concerning Hodge's view) that "the church herself can ultimately and logically have no possible alternative but either to abandon all the distinctive principles of the Augustinian or evangelical system of doctrine, or to reject this (i.e. Hodge's--RB) theory utterly and in all its parts."

LONDON MINISTERS, James Nichols, ed.

Puritan Sermons 1659-1689 (6 volumes, reprinted 1844)
These are "The Morning Exercises at Cripplegate, St. Giles in the Fields, and in Southwark by 75 Ministers of the Gospel in or Near London with Notes and Translations by James Nichol." Volumes vary in length from 624 to 804 pages and cover a great number of topics that are essential to the Puritan view of God, the world and the Christian life. The Preface notes, "This celebrated collection of useful and orthodox theology consists... of practical as well as doctrinal discourses, preached by some of the most eminent divines of the 17th century, and published at irregular intervals between the years 1660 and 1691." Volume six, "The Morning Exercises against Popery; or the principal Errors of the Church of Rome detected and confuted... has always been deemed a standard book on that great controversy," which even in that day was "recently revived... Two of the volumes here described were published prior to the year 1662; consequently all the authors of the sermons in those volumes were Conformists up to that time; and though the majority of them afterwards became for consciences' sake, Nonconformists, yet this circumstance, instead of detracting from their moral and intellectual worth, has served, through intervening years, to enhance their character, in public estimation, as divines of great talents, erudition, and purity." In short, a sound, useful and judicious collection of Puritan divinity. Includes sermons by John Owen, Thomas Watson, Thomas Manton, Matthew Poole, Richard Baxter, William Greenhill, James Janeway, Edmund Calamy, Thomas Vincent and many other able ministers of the Gospel. Volume six contains a phenomenal set of indices (covering all six volumes) which run 179 pages in length.

LOVE CHRISTOPHER

The Works of Christopher Love (Volume 1)
Love was a "prominent London minister, a staunch Presbyterian, a Covenanter, and a member of the Westminster Assembly of Divines, highly regarded by his peers. The American Puritan, Jonathan Edwards, read Love and had his books in his personal library" (back cover). "Dr. Manton and other divines gave him a high character for piety. Lord Clarendon says he was guilty of as much treason as the pulpit could contain" (Darling, Cyclopedia Bibliographica, p. 1870). Love was arrested, because of his political (Covenanter) beliefs and actions, along with six other prominent London Presbyterian ministers (including Thomas Watson), on the charge of treason. The other six were released after six months, but Love was beheaded under Cromwell's military dictatorship on August 22, 1651. This volume, the first in a series, contains 45 sermons. These sermons deal with "The Combat Between the Flesh and the Spirit," "Heaven's Glory," and "Hell's Terror."

LUSK, ROBERT

(NEW!) Characteristics of the Witnessing Church (c. 1840)
The witnessing Church, engaged in battle during the 1260 years of apostasy, fights with the devil and his angels. She is the true Reformation church; she is the "women in the wilderness". But "Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?" (Song 6:10). What are the marks of this host? How will she be known? What is distinctive about her as opposed to the whore of Babylon and her harlot daughters? These questions and many more, probing the nature of the true church (in contrast to the false church), are answered in this fascinating and edifying article. Robert Lusk was a founding member of the Reformed Presbytery, who, "together with David Steele erected the Reformed Presbytery upon true covenanting principles when the RP Synod made it clear that they would not be reclaimed," writes Dodson (for an interesting account of this story see our rare bound photocopy by the Reformed Presbytery, A Short Vindication of Our Covenanted Reformation

LYE, THOMAS

By What Scriptural Rules May Catechising Be So Managed, As That It May Become Most Universally Profitable (1674, reprinted 1844)
Based on "Train up," or catechise, "a child in the way he should go," or in his way: "and When he is old, he will not depart from it" (Prov. 22:6). Shows that there are several texts of Scripture from which the learned conclude that this mode of Catechising was used in the apostles' days, and by the apostles themselves and their immediate successors; and this in imitation of the Jews who had "a form of knowledge and of the truth in the law," (Rom. 2:20), out of which they instructed the ignorant, and taught babes. Thus, the apostle had given the Romans a "form of doctrine"; (Rom. 5:17); and to Timothy "a form of sound words; (2 Tim. 1:13); "a form of sound words," which contained "the principles of the doctrine of Christ," and the first principles of the oracles of God;" six whereof are distinctly mentioned, Heb. 5:12; 6:1,2. Proves how deeply parents and ministers are obliged to this duty, what the duty is, and how it is best performed.

Many people toady call for you believe either in a God of love or a God of wrath. The author of this stirring affirmation of God's love assures you that you don't have to choose between these views. God is one and undivided. Just as His grace is made perfect in suffering, so His love is made clear by what He hates. This book answers some of the hard questions of Scripture, including those to do with John 3:16, the problem of evil, and how a loving God can send people to eternal torment in hell. Appendices include four Reformed authors: Chalmers; Fuller; Boston; and Brown (of Haddington).

Arminianism Another Gospel
A hard-hitting, no punches pulled presentation of Calvinism imported from New Zealand. Documents the fact that "Arminianism is the very essence of Popery." Cites a portion of a letter written by a Jesuit during the days of the archheretic, Prelate, and persecutor of the Puritans and Covenanters Archbishop Laud, in which a Jesuit wrote, "Now we have planted the Sovereign Drug Arminianism which we hope will purge the Protestants from their heresy; and it flourisheth and beareth fruit in due season... I am at this time transported with joy to see how happily all instruments and means, as well as great or smaller, co-operate with our purposes. But to return to the main fabric: OUR FOUNDATION IS ARMINIANISM." This booklet also warns against the teaching of other notable Arminians, such as John Wesley, D.L. Moody, Billy Graham and a host of others.

MACPHERSON, HECTOR

The Cameronian Philosopher: Alexander Shields
The preface notes, "Much literature has been called forth by the Covenanting movement in Scotland, and my sole reason for adding another volume to the library of Covenanting history and biography is that one of the greatest of the Covenanting leaders has been allowed to sink into a quite unmerited oblivion. Alexander Shields, who was after the execution of James Renwick the acknowledged leader of the Cameronian remnant, was one of the most picturesque figures in the Scotland of his day... he lived dangerously and died young; and it is indeed strange that no biography of this remarkable man has yet been attempted... He was a man of thought, and he may with some justice be called 'the Cameronian philosopher,' for in his greatest work, 'A Hind Let Loose,' he expounded... the philosophy of what might be called Radical Calvinism... He is worthy to rank with Buchanan and Rutherford among the chief Scottish protagonists" concerning Calvinistic political theory. Though MacPherson is exceedingly weak in expressing some points of the hard-edged Cameronianism of Shields the book is still useful for much of the information that it contains. It also helps set the context for Shield's masterful and revolutionary work "A Hind Let Loose," (available through SWRB for $39.99) a book easily in the class of Rutherford's famous Lex Rex.

MANTON, THOMAS

How Ought We To Improve Our Baptism? (1674, reprinted 1844)
Question 167 of the Westminster Larger Catechism asks: "How is our Baptism to be improved by us?" The answer: "The needful but much neglected duty of improving our Baptism, is to be performed by us all our life long, especially in the time of temptation, and when we are present at the administration of it to others; by serious and thankful consideration of the nature of it, and of the ends for which Christ instituted it, the privileges and benefits conferred and sealed thereby, and our solemn vow made therein; by being humbled for our sinful defilement, our falling short of, and walking contrary to, the grace of baptism, and our engagements; by growing up to assurance of pardon of sin, and of all other blessings sealed to us in that sacrament; by drawing strength from the death and resurrection of Christ, into whom we are baptized, for the mortifying of sin, and quickening of grace; and by endeavoring to live by faith, to have our conversation in holiness and righteousness, as those that have therein given up their names to Christ; and to walk in brotherly love, as being baptized by the same Spirit into one body." Manton, in his classic style, elaborates on this teaching.

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). Some of Manton's better known volumes contained in this massive set, such as his commentary on James and Jude and his Sermons on Psalm 119 have been recently reprinted, but the rest of this outstanding material is still of very rare occurrence. The 22nd volume contains an enormous index.

(NEW!) The Bay Psalm Book (1640)
"The first book printed in North America, The Whole Booke of Psalmes Faithfully Translated Into English Metre, commonly known as the Bay Psalm Book, appeared in Cambridge, Massachusetts (1640). Designed for public and private worship, this metrical version of the Psalms became extremely popular and by 1733 had gone through about seventy editions" (Encyclopedia of the Reformed Faith, p. 30). This is a facsimile reprint of the first edition printed by Stephen Daye at Cambridge, in New England in 1640. Commenting on the origin of the name of this Psalter, the introduction states that "(t)he new Psalm Book was adopted at once by nearly every congregation in the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, and for that reason it came to be known as the 'Bay Psalm Book.'" Furthermore, it is noted that "(a)fter being used for upwards of a century, the Bay Psalm Book gave way to the newer version of Tate and Brady and of Isaac Watts ("Watts' whims" as the Presbyterians call them--RB)." Only ten copies of this first edition were known to be extant in 1903.

M'MASTER, GILBERT

(NEW!) An Apology for the Book of Psalms in Five Letters (1852)
This book argues for exclusive Psalmody. It includes a detailed history (ancient [the Fathers, Augustine, Apostolic Constitutions, etc.] and modern [Wickliffe, Luther, Calvin, etc., to the author's day]) of Psalmody, gives reasons for retaining the book of Psalms and considers numerous objections. It takes on both Watts and Wesley and the first appendix exhibits the unsound views of Watts by answering the question: "What were the opinions of Dr. Watts on the subject of the Trinity and person of Jesus Christ?" One answer to this question, given as an example by M'Master's, shows that Watts wrote, "That the covenant of redemption was not made with a person who was the Father's equal
, but with this created spirit". Moreover, M'Master, after citing numerous other heterodox statements from Watts' own writings, concludes that "Dr. W. was an antitrinitarian, and that the distinct divine Personality of the Son of God, as equal with the Father, had no place in his acknowledged creed. The labours of his life, in which he manifested more than his usual mental vigour, were in direct opposition to the orthodox faith on this whole subject." This appendix alone, revealing Watts' views as "a form of the old Oriental Gnosticism," makes this a valuable contribution to the Psalmody debate (from a historical perspective), considering the leading role Watts played in the overthrow of exclusive Psalmody in his day. Moreover, it is a manifest impossibility that God raised up this heretic Watts (a modified Arian), to give the church an imitation of the book of Psalms or any of his other "hymns" -- which sadly, are still in wide use today. And it is almost too startling to note, but this was no new strategy on the part of Satan; for it greatly parallels his first major attack upon inspired Psalmody (which was launched in the second century). "This brings to mind a remarkable coincidence," writes M'Master. "Bardesanes of Edessa, of the second century, and Watts of Southampton, of the eighteen century, were both distinguished for their advocacy of error, and both were poets, and are the only poets, as far as recollected, who attempted an imitation of the book of Psalms, each in a book of 150 hymns. If history is to be credited, the Gnostic, as a poet, was not inferior to him of Southampton... The poetry of fancy will not do away the heresy of prose." 223 pages.

M'WARD, ROBERT

(NEW!) The Original Preface to Samuel Rutherford's Letters (1664)
M'Ward was a disciple and close friend of Samuel Rutherford (and acted as his private secretary at Westminster); he was also the publisher of the first edition of Rutherford's Letters
, in 1664. This was just three years after Rutherford's death and M'Ward hoped to strengthen the hands of the persecuted Covenanters with the publication of his preface and the release of these magnificent letters. In the preface he 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. I am speaking, of course, of the Westminster Standards, the "Solemn League and Covenant" and the mass of other Presbyterian/Covenanter/Puritan writings that have been handed down to posterity, from these very days. These men knew that the covenanted cause of Christ would prosper, though it was suffering a great setback at the time of the writing of this preface; but they persevered anyway (walking by faith and not by sight) to give us these unsurpassed works. 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 (and many of them eventually did, though a few defected). 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 edition" is the first reprinting of this work in many years. We have also appended Rutherford's dying testimony (originally 5 pages long) to this preface. It further corroborates the large body of other evidence (cf. George Gillespie's dying testimony at the end of his Works, volume 2, for one) testifying to those glorious truths that were foremost in the minds of the most prominent Covenanters, even moments before they eternally entered the presence of their Almighty Father. Additionally, M'Ward's preface to Rutherford's original letters, which is 45 pages in length, is not found in the recent Banner of Truth reprinting of Rutherford's Letters (for they republished the 1891 edition).

MCNAUGHER, JOHN, ed.

The Psalms in Worship
Dr. David Freeman (who was Professor John Murray's pastor in Philadelphia) said that the Psalms in Worship was the most comprehensive treatment of this subject to be found anywhere. This volume (of almost 600 pages) consists of material presented at two conventions in 1905, promoting the claims of the Psalms in worship. Two articles covering each of 27 related topics comprise this volume, making a total of 54 separate papers (all thoroughly indexed and including a new appendix added by the publisher). Articles included range from argumentative discussions of a doctrinal and critical kind (defending exclusive Psalmody), to broader discussions along historical, literary, and practical lines. This is a one of a kind publication of limited quantity, nothing else like it is available today! Limited stock remaining. When our hardcover stock is depleted we will substitute a "bound photocopy" edition in its place, at the same low price, unless you instruct us otherwise.

M'CRIE, THOMAS (the younger)

Annals of English Presbytery from the Earliest Period to the Present Time (1872)
Focuses on English Presbyterianism from its earliest days (c. 286AD) to the author's time (1872). Contains much interesting and useful information (in its 333 pages), but should be read with one eye on the Act, Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation (by the Reformed Presbytery). Such facts as Milton's Arianism and how Unitarianism was introduced among nonconformists not by presbyterians "as commonly supposed, but by independents and baptists," are sprinkled throughout this book. In short, this is an easy reading historical overview of English Presbyterianism.

Almost 600 pages in length, this book covers the period from 1529 (the state of religion before the Reformation) to 1843 (the formation of the Free Church of Scotland). It is well indexed and contains much historical information left out by shorter histories, making it an ideal study tool; its only drawback being M'Crie's somewhat soft historical and editorial interpretation of certain events. Thus, we again caution the reader that this book should be read with one eye on the Act, Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation (by the Reformed Presbytery).

McILHENNY, CHUCK AND DONNA

When the Wicked Seize the City
This Presbyterian minister and his family (who reside in San Francisco) have received numerous death threats, had their house fire-bombed, and have undergone a highly publicized law suit, all because they maintained the truth of Scripture condemning homosexuality. This book chronicles the moving story of a courageous Christian family and helps to expose the hatred bound up in the homosexual movement. It also explores the rise of gay "power" and what this will mean if Christians do not raise a standard against this Satanic onslaught.

History of the Reformation of the Sixteenth Century (in 5 Volumes, 1846)
The author calls the Reformation: "one of the greatest revolutions that has ever been accomplished in human affairs." He also notes that it was "one of the greatest outpourings of the life that cometh from God," whose "influence is still visible on every side." Moreover , he points out that this is "not the history of a mere party," but rather "the history of the Reformation addresses itself to all Christians, or rather to all mankind," for it "bears the mark of regeneration of the human race, of a religious and social change emanating from God himself." Furthermore, Merle D'Aubigne notes that this is the only edition that he personally revised and acknowledges "this translation as the only faithful expression of my (his) thoughts in the English language," and recommends it as such to all his readers.

MITCHELL, A.F.

The Westminster Assembly: Its History and Standards
William Hetherington has written: "Every person who has directed his attention to the events of the seventeenth century, whether with regard to their civil or their religious aspect, has felt that it was impossible fully to understand either the one or the other line of study, without taking into view the character of the Westminster Assembly, the purpose for which it met, and the result of its deliberations... (T)he man who penetrates a little deeper into the nature of those unrevealed but powerful influences which move a nation's mind, and mould its destinies, will be ready to direct his attention more profoundly to the objects and deliberations of an assembly which met at a moment so critical, and was composed of the great master-minds of the age; and the theologian who has learned to view religion as the vital principle of human nature, equally in nations and in the individual man, will not easily admit that weak idea, that such an assembly could have been an isolated event, but will be disposed earnestly to inquire what led to its meeting, and what important consequences followed. And although the subject has not hitherto been investigated with such a view, it may, we trust, be possible to prove, that it was the most important event in the century in which it occurred; and that it has exerted, and in all probability will yet exert, a far more wide and permanent influence upon both the civil and the religious history of mankind than has generally been ever imagined. (Hetherington , History of the Westminster Assembly, pp. 16-17). Beattie (Memorial Volume, p. xxxv, 1879) called this book, "perhaps the best single popular book on the Assembly yet published."

Revival and Revivalism: The Making and Marring of American Evangelicalism 1750-1858
"In Revival and Revivalism Iain H. Murray has produced yet another historical study of outstanding quality. Against the rich background of narrative of God-given revivals in North America, he traces the landmark changes in both understanding and practices which took place between the middle 18th and 19th centuries... culminating in the widespread influence of Charles Grandison Finney. This is not merely a record of the church's past. Rather, those who read it will soon realise that it provides a key to understanding contemporary evangelicalism and its deep needs. It may not be too much to claim that this volume is essential reading for Christians who desire true revival in the churches of our own day" (Dr. Sinclair Ferguson from the back cover). Noll is also apropos, when he states, "Murray's main point is also theologically compelling: when religion becomes something that humans work up for God (i.e. 'revivalism') instead of something God graciously bestows upon repentant sinners (i.e. 'revival'), the integrity of the faith is at stake."

MURRAY, IAIN H.

Spurgeon v. Hyper Calvinism: The Battle for Gospel Preaching
In speaking of how this book, and the book The Forgotten Spurgeon developed, the author notes: "The two books deal with two quite different controversies although they are not altogether unrelated. Arminianism, the main theme of The Forgotten Spurgeon, sets aside the scriptural teaching of the sovereignty of God in salvation. All men are equally condemned in sin but, for reasons unknown to us and to the praise of his grace, God does not deal equally with those who are equally undeserving. The testimony of Scripture ought to be unmistakable; 'as many as were ordained to eternal life believed' (Acts 13:48). But does the denial of Arminianism mean that God has no love for all? that Christ is not to be proclaimed as the Saviour in whom all are called to trust? Does the particularity of grace mean that there can be no universal entreaties, no gospel for 'every creature'? Hyper-Calvinism answers 'Yes" to these questions and in so doing it constitutes a serious hindrance to the progress of the evangel." This book, citing from such "masters in Israel" as John Calvin, Samuel Rutherford and John Brown (of Wamphray), answers the Hyper-Calvinistic challenge. It should be especially interesting for Baptists, as it deals much with their heritage, as does Murray's Forgotten Spurgeon.

MURRAY, MATTHEW

(NEW!) The Millennium: Peace, Prosperity and National Covenanting (1879)
This is the Reformation (especially second Reformation) view of postmillennialism as set forth and explained in terms of the national blessings and gospel purity that will be present when the millennium arrives. Some items discussed include: the visible state of unity in the church during the millennium; national covenanting; how kings will be "nursing fathers" (Isa. 49:23) to the church during this blessed period of history; and how "all nations shall serve him" (Ps 72:11) in that day (and there are no nations in heaven -- so this must be speaking of what will take place on earth before Christ returns, contrary to amillennialism)! In short, the millennium will be marked by visible civil and ecclesiastical obedience to Christ as King! This is exactly the opposite of the situation that we are presently experiencing -- for we live in the days of the great apostasy (2 Thes. 2:3). The church (visible) is in disarray and has grievously backslidden from her previous Reformation attainments. No nation is covenanted with Christ (as a nation), but instead, "The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us" (Ps. 2:2-3). The nations and many churches despise Christ's royal law and He now "vex(es) them in his sore displeasure" -- but when the millennial glory arrives the river of His Spirit will fill the earth (Ezek 47:1-12) and His high priestly prayer will be answered (John 17:21: "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world
may believe that thou hast sent me."). This is a greatly encouraging introduction to this topic and the best short treatment of this subject that we offer! Excerpted from the Original Covenanter and Contending Witness magazine (volumes 2:4-6).

NEWTON, THOMAS

(NEW!) Dissertations on the Prophecies Which Have Remarkably Been Fulfilled, and at this Time are Fulfilling in the World (2 volumes, 1817)
The author defends the historicist position of eschatology. Historicism teaches that a number of the prophecies of Scripture, and especially those in the book of Revelation, will be seen to be fulfilled throughout history. The specific prophetic fulfillments in question (for example what does the "beast" or "the mother of harlots" in Revelation 17 refer to?) are not seen to be past (as in the Preterist system) or future (as in the Futurist system); neither are they spiritualized to refer to general ideas (of good versus evil) without specific historic fulfillment (as in the Typico-Spiritual system). These eschatological designations hold true generally speaking, although historicists recognize that certain prophetic portions of scripture (e.g. Matt. 24) contain elements that were fulfilled in the past. The historicist position was ensconced in all the substantial Reformed confessions (including the preamble to the Decrees of Dort [1618-19] and the Westminster Confession of Faith [1647]); and no major Reformed Confession has ever taken the Preterist or Futurist position (which is not surprising, since both of these positions, as systems, originated with the Jesuits). Historicism was the position held by almost all the Reformers including Luther, Calvin and Knox. Speaking of this book, Newton notes that his purpose "is not to treat of the prophecies in general, not even of those prophecies in particular which were fulfilled in the person and actions of our Saviour; but only of such as relate more immediately to these latter ages, and are in some measure receiving their accomplishment at this time." His hope is that "the work will prove the more generally acceptable, as it will not consist merely of abstract speculative divinity, but will be inlivened with a proper intermixture of history, and will include several of the most material transactions from the beginning of the world to this day." Daniel, of course, receives a good amount of treatment, as well as the man of sin, the great apostasy and "Our Saviour's prophecies relating to the destruction of Jerusalem" (which historicists have always "preterized," or recognized as past). This book also covers the whole book of Revelation. Twelfth edition, indexed, 439 (vol. 1) and 440 pages (vol. 2).

75 Bible Questions Your Instructors Pray You Won't Ask: How to Spot Humanism in the Classroom or Pulpit
Three major sections of 25 questions each seek to sort out whether or not God or man is sovereign, God's law or man's law is to be obeyed and whether God's kingdom or man's kingdom is coming. This provocative little book asks a question, gives a "questionable answer," and provides a reply to the questionable answer. Appendices to each section contain Historic creeds giving support for the positions taken and/or recommended reading lists. The first two questions read: "Didn't God Hate the Unborn Infant Esau?" and "Could Pharaoh Have Repented?" An excellent book to hand out to Arminians and all others, who, to a greater or lesser extent, have been tainted with the humanistic heresies which are prevalent in the modern church.

OWEN, JOHN

(NEW!) Biblical Theology
First-ever English translation of Owen's Biblical Theology
. 861 pages, plus 50 pages of introductory matter. Furthermore, here is an interesting note on Owen's most mature views concerning church government (written by Jim Dodson, the editor of the Original Covenanter and Contending Witness magazine): "According to Robert Wodrow (1679-1734), the eminent church historian, published posthumously in his Analecta: or, Materials for a History of Remarkable Providences; mostly Relating to Scotch Ministers and Christians (vol. 2; 1842) -- 'I hear Mr. Blackwell tells that when last at London, he had this account of Owen at his death, from persons who wer with him; that he expressed himself very much in favours of Presbyterian Government, and said he was perswaded that Presbitry was the way of God' (p. 263). Also --'January, 1716.--Mr. George Ridpath told me two or three years agoe, when doun at Edinburgh, that he visited Dr. Ouen on his death-bed, and Presbytry and Episcopacy fell in their discourse, and the Doctor said to him, that nou he had sein his mistake as [to] the Independent way, and declared to him, (a day or two before his death,) that, after his outmost search into the Scriptures and antiquity, he was nou satisfyed that Presbitry was the way Christ had appointed in his New Testament Church' (p. 309). [I have retained the original spelling in Wodrow's accounts; J.D.] These statements, along with Owen's defence of the divine right of ruling elders (see vol. 16 of his Works, pp. 42-143, esp. pp. 106-130), ministerial parity and courts of review are indicative of assent to the principles of Presbyterianism over against Independency. I concur with Thomas Smyth, of Charleston, SC, in his judgment that Owen 'may justly be reckoned a Presbyterian.'"

(NEW!) Against Tithing
From Owen's An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews
, volume 5, pp. 319-393 (1855 Goold edition). Here, expounding on Hebrews 6:1-7:11, Owen demonstrates why tithing was a typical ordinance that passed away with the coming of Christ. However, he also shows that with the coming of the light of the Gospel in Christ (which necessitated the abrogation of the shadowy administration of the covenant of grace as seen in the OT), our obligation to give to the work of the Gospel, where it is faithfully carried on, is just as great as it has ever been. This is an advanced exegetical study of 73 pages.

OWEN, JOHN

The Death of Death in the Death of Christ
This book "is a polemical work, designed to show, among other things, that the doctrine of universal redemption is unscriptural and destructive of the gospel... Owen's treatise is offered, in the belief that it will help us in one of the most urgent tasks facing Evangelical Christendom today, the recovery of the gospel. It is safe to say that no comparable exposition of the work of redemption as planned and executed by the triune Jehovah has ever been done since Owen published his in 1648... Nobody has a right to dismiss the doctrine of the limitedness of the atonement as a monstrosity of Calvinistic logic until he has refuted Owen's proof that it is part of the uniform biblical presentation of redemption, clearly taught in plain text after plain text. And nobody has done that yet" (back cover).

POYNET, JOHN

(NEW!) A Shorte Treatise of Politike Power, and of the true obedience which subjectes owe to kynges and other civil Governours, with an exhortation too all true naturall Englishemen (1556)
"The second generation of reformers briskly articulated a theology of the state, with the following seminal works appearing in rapid succession in less that 30 years: Martin Bucer's De Regno Christi
(1551), John Ponet's A Short Treatise of Political Power (1556), Christopher Goodman's How Superior Powers ought to be obeyed of their subjects; and wherein they may lawfully by God's word be disobeyed and resisted (1558)... and Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos [or A Defense of Liberty Against Tyrants--RB] (1579)" (David Hall, Savior or Servant?: Putting Government in Its Place, 1996, pp. 224-225). We would also add Knox's Appellation to the Scottish Nobility... (titled Reformation, Revolution and Romanism in this catalogue), though it is shorter than the other works listed above, and therefore covers less ground. Furthermore, Hall gives us a nice overview of some of the primary points dealt with by Poynet's Short Treatise, writing: "Among the topics considered by Ponet were the following: (1) 'although [man] has reason, yet because through the Fall of the first man, his reason is radically corrupt, and sensuality has gotten the upper hand, he is not able by himself to rule himself...'; (2) the state was created by the people, when governors abused their power; (3) 'For the whole Decalogue and every part thereof is written as well to kings, and princes, and other public persons, as it is to private persons'; (4) mixed states yielded the longest tenures; (5) Governors do not have absolute power; and (6) Subjects are limited in their obedience to the magistrates; submission is not absolute (Chap. 4). Ponet wrote that the state's purpose was to maintain justice, and the magistrates were also subject to God's law. Remembered as an early example of Protestant resistance theory, Ponet discussed 'Whether it is lawful to depose an evil governor, and kill a tyrant?'" (Savior or Servant?, 1996, pp. 224n).

PRESSLY, JOHN

(NEW!) Review of Ralston's Inquiry into the Propriety of Using an Evangelical Psalmody in the Worship of God (1848)
"Among the numerous and highly interesting predictions with regard to the future glory of Zion, it is foretold, that her 'watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again the captivity of Zion.' For the arrival of this period of joy and unanimity among the watchmen of Zion, the church has for ages been employed in making prayer and supplication before God. It still remains true, however, to some extent, that diversity of opinion prevails among the watchmen of Zion; and in some parts of religious worship, they cannot 'lift up the voice together.' And in no part of religious worship does this diversity more unhappily appear, than in the delightful exercise of celebrating God's praise. Some believe, that in this part of divine worship, we have no authority to use any other 'psalms, and hymns, and spiritual songs,' than those which God has furnished in his word; while others maintain that we are at liberty to use those which have been composed by uninspired men, that matter of which they have collected out of the Scriptures. It is easy to see, that such a difference in principle must exert a powerful influence in perpetuating division, and in preventing union in the church of God. To endeavor, in the use of all proper means, to remove this cause of division among brethren supposes that there is a fault somewhere, it should be the concern of every one to ascertain whether his principles and practice on this subject are conformable to the word of God. For on those who forsake, and not on those who hold fast the 'law and the testimony,' must the fault or division lie" states the author. This book, of 180 pages, endeavors to correct this division by defending the position of Apostolic church -- which was exclusive Psalmody. This is the second edition, "enlarged by two additional chapters, embracing a critical analysis of Col. 3:16-17 and the modern history (from the apostolic age to the author's day--RB) of Psalmody."

9. The Second Coming of Christ as Righteous Motivation (1 John 2:28-29) (2.98) The practical application of eschatolgy.

10. Joyful Obedience Versus Legalism (1 John 2:29-3:3) (2.98)

11.To Love Christ is To Love God's Law (1 John 3:4-9) (2.98) Shows how the devil hates God's law for he is the greatest of all antinomians. Also demonstrates that living in righteousness is necessary in the Christian life because Christ came to destroy the works of the devil. Exposes modern strains of Gnostic lawlessness and toleration, upholds the regulative principle, blasts HoHo (i.e. Christ-mass, or the celebration of Roman Catholic/Pagan holy-days), etc. Asks the questions: 1. Do I love God's law? and 2. Do I grieve over breaking it?

12. The Law of Love and Toleration (1 John 3:10-18) (2.98) Love is always lacking where unbiblical toleration is involved. Furthermore, toleration of sin and ungodliness is one of the primary sins of our day and has greatly contributed to a blurring of the antithesis between the faithfulness and unfaithfulness (in every area of life). This sermon shows that we know that we are the children of God because we love the brethren. It also points out that one manifestation of this love is seen in the fact that we confront those involved in sin, whether it be in doctrine or practise. Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him (Lev. 19:17).

Blasting the Devil's Lies About Sex and Marriage ($2.98, cassette sermon) The teaching and application of the seventh commandment, "Thou shalt not commit adultery;" set forth as only a modern day Puritan minister can. Trumpets God's covenant curses against the many forms of sexual deviancy; such as homosexuality, adultery, and pornography (including print or screen depictions). Shows how modern man has sown to the wind ("free" sex and "safe" sex) and is now reaping the whirlwind of the so-called sexual revolution, in a crop of disease, divorce and societal destruction. Moreover, Price does not leave matters with the obvious outward violations of this commandment, but makes application in accord with the words of Christ, "But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart" (Matt. 5:28). He also upholds lawful vows and oaths and magnifies covenant responsibility in marriage; outlining the major duties for both husbands and wives which are required by Scripture in order to please the Lord in the marriage bond. Touches on women's dress; demonstrates how dating leads to divorce (while upholding biblical courtship); shows why God's word makes adultery a capital crime (punishable by the lawful magistrate) and much more. One of our most practical and searching sermons, most (or all) of this message applies to everyone in some way.

Christ and Covenant Children ($2.98) Shows four ways in which Children of believers are considered part of the church, clothed from birth in their covenantal birth right. Defends infant baptism as based in the Reformation hermeneutic which recognizes the federal character of covenants and the covenantal continuity seen throughout Scripture.

Christian Love is Intolerant ($2.98) Explains how the church shows its love for Christ by its hatred and refutation of all sin, error and backsliding. Toleration of sin is one of the great sins of our day. It is widely practised in the church, state and family. Based on Rev. 2:12-17, this sermon by Price rebukes theological pluralism, "unity above truth," the church growth movement, and much more!

Covenanted Motherhood ($2.98) Motherhood exalted to the lofty and noble position that it occupies in Scripture. Great encouragement is to be found here for those "mothers in Israel" who bow reverently before the Word of the Lord, and labor with all their might to be obedient to this high calling.

Covenanting and Terms of Communion($2.98) A short over view of the rationale behind closed communion, covenanting and its obligation, and living up to Reformation attainments.

Election($2.98) The sovereignty of God defended from Eph. 1:1-3.

Enemies to Faithfulness ($2.98) Experimental Christianity at its best.

Fanning the Flame of Your First Love ($2.98) A searching and practical sermon that can be listened to over and over.

Finding True Joy ($2.98) Explains what biblical joy is and how to obtain it.

God's Purpose in Suffering ($2.98) Demonstrates how suffering brings glory to God and sanctifies the individual. Also examines how the civil and ecclesiastical beasts persecute (unto death if need be) the "women in the wilderness" as she bears a faithful testimony unto the whole counsel of God.

Iconoclasm Leads to Victory ($2.98) This is the kind of preaching that led to the great Reformations of the past. May it be blessed of God to do so once again.

Importance of Godly Leaders ($2.98) Indispensable teaching for all those aspiring to be and those who already are leaders in the church. Deals with leadership qualifications such as humility, compassion, courage, steadfastness, single-mindedness, and a host of others.

Jesus Hates False Teaching and Unholy Alliances ($2.98) Demonstrates that toleration of sin (individually or corporately) is spiritual adultery and leads to God's judgement. Asks the questions: Do you hate false teaching? Do you despise error? Do you abominate lies? The Lord Jesus Christ does! A faithful testimony that is much needed in our day of general apostasy. Special introductory price.

Joyful Obedience Versus Legalism ($2.98) Legalism is a common slander brought against the people of God, who love his law (Ps. 1). But what Satan, the unbeliever, and the antinomian do not understand is the great joy, blessing and reward (the greatest reward is fellowship with Christ) intricately interwoven in obedience (by God's grace) to His holy, spiritual and just commands. For as our Lord himself says: "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me (John 14:21-24).

Judicial Blindness in the Modern Church ($2.98) A strong rebuke directed at a backslidden modern church, which also includes much encouragement for all those who remain faithful to historic Reformation (i.e. biblical) attainments. Using the church at Sardis (Rev. 3:1-6) as a basis for this sermon, Price here blasts forth a clarion call for a return to the corporate ecclesiastical and national attainments of the second Reformation! Powerful preaching, reminiscent of the old Covenanters of days gone by.

Masculinity ($9.99, 4 tape set) With the demonized world, media and church constantly assaulting the biblical doctrine of male headship, this anti-egalitarian elixir should be a welcome tonic for restoring a vigorous biblical masculinity, based on Scriptural realities (in opposition to the feminized fantasies of modern clerics and the spiritually impotent and faithless foolishness of the modern media "universe.").

Only True Unity, The ($2.98) There is only one Biblical way to true unity and this tape sets it forth. National Reformation will follow.

Perseverance of the Saints ($2.98) The "P" in TULIP. A powerfully encouraging sermon that illustrates God's absolute sovereignty in bringing His children safely home to heaven.

Pictures of Christ and Idolatry ($2.98) Deals with the second commandment and one of its most prominent modern violations. Refutes the Roman Catholic view, which has been adopted, at least in part, by many who now call themselves Protestants.

Power of the Confessing Church ($2.98) Deals with the big picture, regarding the family, the church and the state. Upholds the "forgotten four" commandments (i.e. the first to the fourth) and applies them to each of these major areas of Christian concern. Promotes Christian education, courtship and daily family worship, as well as the total reformation of church and state.

The Role of Women in the Church ($4.99, 2 cassettes) An extremely strong biblical stand, sure to be controversial.

Seeking the Lost: Biblical Tactics of Evangelism ($2.98) Answers how and why a Calvinist brings the good news to a lost world.

Sovereign Grace Salvation ($2.98) Calvinism pressed!

Stewardship, Wisdom and Covenant Keeping ($2.98) Explains how the church is seen as a moral person (with a federal character throughout history) and thus bound to the biblical covenants of her faithful forefathers.

Suffering: The Biblical Gift ($2.98) Hard teaching, but of great benefit.

Sufficiency of Scripture ($2.98) Sola Scriptura is still the cry!

Terms of Communion (Forthcoming series, ?# cassettes) This set explains the six "Terms of Ministerial and Christian Communion in the Reformed Presbyterian Church." These terms represent a high water mark concerning covenanted Reformation attainments thus far in history. They are thoroughly Scriptural (as this set proves) and should be adopted by all Churches as the minimum standard by which people are admitted to communicate membership. Separate sections of this lengthy series can be purchased individually and these subsets are listed after the terms themselves. The "rare bound photocopy" An Explanation and Defense of the Terms of Communion... by the Reformed Presbytery also covers much the same ground, adding some arguments not found in this tape set, but generally containing less detail. McKnight's "rare bound photocopy" Concerning Close Communion is also very helpful in regard to the general subject of the Scriptural propriety of a close communion and explicit, open, honest, and biblical terms for fencing the table of the Lord. The six terms of communion are:

1. An acknowledgement of the Old and New Testament to be the Word of God, and the alone infallible rule of faith and practice.

2. That the whole doctrine of the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Catechisms, Larger and Shorter, are agreeable unto, and founded upon the Scriptures.

3. That Presbyterial Church Government and manner of worship are alone of divine right and unalterable; and that the most perfect model of these as yet attained, is exhibited in the Form of Government and Directory for Worship, adopted by the Church of Scotland in the Second Reformation.

4. That public, social covenanting is an ordinance of God, obligatory on churches and nations under the New Testament; that the National Covenant and the Solemn League are an exemplification of this divine institution; and that these Deeds are of continued obligation upon the moral person; and in consistency with this, that the Renovation of these Covenants at Auchensaugh, Scotland, 1712 was agreeable to the word of God.

5. An approbation of the faithful contendings of the martyrs of Jesus, especially in Scotland, against Paganism, Popery, Prelacy, Malignancy and Sectarianism; immoral civil governments; Erastian tolerations and persecutions which flow from them; and of the Judicial Testimony emitted by the Reformed Presbytery in North Britain, 1761 with supplements from the Reformed Presbyterian Church; as containing a noble example to be followed, in contending for all divine truth, and in testifying against all corruptions embodied in the constitutions of either churches or states.

6. Practically adorning the doctrine of God our Savior by walking in all His commandments and ordinances blamelessly.

Terms of Communion: The Word of God ($5.96, 2 cassettes)

Explains and defends the first term of communion, which is "An acknowledgement of the Old and New Testament to be the Word of God, and the alone infallible rule of faith and practice." Covers the attributes of Scripture, including the necessity, inspiration, authority, sufficiency, perspicuity, perpetuity, etc. of the Word of God. Also deals with principles of interpretation (hermeneutics) and how we know that God's Word is His Word, and thus can be trusted as the absolute, inerrant, infallible and inspired truth. Touches on higher criticism and the debate over bible version, upholding the Textus Receptus (i.e. the ecclesiastical or received text) and the King James Version. A fine defense of Sola Scriptura which also touches on how "extra-biblical" terms of communion are not only required by Scripture itself, but are an inescapable necessity. Price is careful to point out the difference between the primary, infallible standard of Scripture and those uninspired subordinate standards, which nevertheless bind the conscience whenever they say the same thing as Scripture. A great introduction to God's Word that comes with our highest recommendation.

Terms of Communion: The Westminster Standards ($14.90, 5 cassettes)
Explains and defends the second term of communion, which is "That the whole doctrine of the Westminster Confession of Faith, and the Catechisms, Larger and Shorter, are agreeable unto, and founded upon the Scriptures." Gives a summary of the Westminster standards, its history and demonstrates why these standards are agreeable to the word of God.

Terms of Communion: Presbyterian Worship and Government ($5.96, 2 cassettes)
Explains and defends the third term of communion, which is "That Presbyterial Church Government and manner of worship are alone of divine right and unalterable; and that the most perfect model of these as yet attained, is exhibited in the Form of Government and Directory for Worship, adopted by the Church of Scotland in the Second Reformation."

Terms of Communion: Covenants and Covenanting ($19.99, 7 cassettes)
Explains and defends the fourth term of communion, which is "That public, social covenanting is an ordinance of God, obligatory on churches and nations under the New Testament; that the National Covenant and the Solemn League are an exemplification of this divine institution; and that these Deeds are of continued obligation upon the moral person; and in consistency with this, that the Renovation of these Covenants at Auchensaugh, Scotland, 1712 was agreeable to the word of God."

Terms of Communion: The Martyrs and Historic Testimony (forthcoming, #? cassettes)
Explains and defends the fifth term of communion, which is "An approbation of the faithful contendings of the martyrs of Jesus, especially in Scotland, against Paganism, Popery, Prelacy, Malignancy and Sectarianism; immoral civil governments; Erastian tolerations and persecutions which flow from them; and of the Judicial Testimony emitted by the Reformed Presbytery in North Britain, 1761 (i.e. The Act, Declaration and Testimony for the Whole of Our Covenanted Reformation
--RB) with supplements from the Reformed Presbyterian Church; as containing a noble example to be followed, in contending for all divine truth, and in testifying against all corruptions embodied in the constitutions of either churches or states."

Terms of Communion: The Practice of Truth (forthcoming, #? cassettes)
Explains and defends the sixth term of communion, which is "Practically adorning the doctrine of God our Savior by walking in all His commandments and ordinances blamelessly."

What is Biblical Faith? ($2.98) Foundation teaching that will be of benefit to young and old alike.

Why Creeds are a Biblical Necessity ($2.98, cassette, 90 minutes) A much misunderstood topic in our day made easy to understand; with copious Scriptural proofs included for each proposition. Answers the question as to why we need creeds and confessions and deals with the oft asked question: Isn't Scripture sufficient? Shows how faithful creeds derive their authority from Scripture, how they advance the truth and defend it from heresy, and how they promote the peace, purity and unity of the church. Answers many questions about toleration and the civil and ecclesiastical establishment of the one true Reformed religion, while demonstrating how God's wrath abides upon those churches and nations which will not own Christ as King. Deals with the nature of the church and the state and gives insight into which churches to join and which churches to leave. This is a lecture of major importance if we are ever to see a unified and faithful witness to the truth in our day; and few would contend that such a witness is not a Scriptural duty. "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Cor. 1:10).

PRICE, GREG

The Duty and Perpetual Obligation of Social Covenanting
The material found in this bound photocopy addresses a forgotten and neglected ordinance of God: social covenanting. God's people in times of repentance and thanksgiving, trial and blessing have been a covenanting people. In the most pure times of ecclesiastical and civil reformation throughout history, both church and state under the mediatorial rule of Christ have by the grace of God bound themselves together by covenant to promote and defend the true Christian religion. The first document adopted by the Westminster Assembly was in fact, the Solemn League and Covenant (1644). It united the kingdoms of Scotland, England, and Ireland in a covenanted reformation of both church and state in order to preserve, promote and defend the true Christian religion (as summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger and Shorter Catechisms, Directory For Public Worship, and Form of Church Government), and in order to expose and uproot all false teaching contrary to the Scripture and these standards. Furthermore, it was not only the desire of the Westminster Assembly to unite in covenant the three British kingdoms, but rather to include in this covenanted reformation all of the Reformed Churches throughout Europe. Consider the goal of the Assembly as summarized by Hetherington: "There was one great, and even sublime idea, brought somewhat indefinitely before the Westminster Assembly, which has not yet been realized, the idea of a Protestant union throughout Christendom, not merely for the purpose of counterbalancing Popery, but in order to purify, strengthen, and unite all true Christian churches, so that with combined energy and zeal they might go forth, in glad compliance with the Redeemer's commands, teaching all nations, and preaching the everlasting gospel to every creature under heaven. This truly magnificent, and also truly Christian idea, seems to have originated in the mind of that distinguished man, Alexander Henderson. It was suggested by him to the Scottish commissioners, and by them partially brought before the English Parliament, requesting them to direct the Assembly to write letters to the Protestant Churches in France, Holland, Switzerland, and other Reformed Churches. . . . and along with these letters were sent copies of the Solemn League and Covenant, a document which might itself form the basis of such a Protestant union. The deep thinking divines of the Netherlands apprehended the idea, and in their answer, not only expressed their approbation of the Covenant, but also desired to join in it with the British kingdoms. Nor did they content themselves with the mere expression of approval and willingness to join. A letter was soon afterwards sent to the Assembly from the Hague, written by Duraeus (the celebrated John Dury), offering to come to the Assembly, and containing a copy of a vow which he had prepared and tendered to the distinguished Oxenstiern, chancellor of Sweden, wherein he bound himself 'to prosecute a reconciliation between Protestants in point of religion'. . . . [O]n one occasion Henderson procured a passport to go to Holland, most probably for the purpose of prosecuting this grand idea. But the intrigues of politicians, the delays caused by the conduct of the Independents, and the narrow-minded Erastianism of the English Parliament, all conspired to prevent the Assembly from entering farther into that truly glorious Christian enterprise. Days of trouble and darkness came; persecution wore out the great men of that remarkable period; pure and vital Christianity was stricken to the earth and trampled under foot. . ." (William Hetherington, History of the Westminster Assembly of Divines , [Edmonton, Alberta: Still Waters Revival Books], pp. 337-339). The material presented herein is commended to the reader with the sincere prayer and confidence that God will again restore the Church of Jesus Christ to a glorious covenanted reformation--one that will even surpass that one to which she had attained at the time of the Westminster Assembly. However, when the Lord brings that future covenanted reformation it will not be limited to only three kingdoms of the earth, but by the grace and power of Christ our King, it will be a covenanted reformation that will encompass all of the nations of the earth (Ps. 2:6-12; Is. 2:1-4; Mt. 28:1-20) and will bring to the church a visible unity and uniformity that (unlike pleas for unity today) is firmly grounded upon the truth" (Greg Price, Preface).

PRIDE, MARY

The Way Home: Beyond Feminism, Back to Reality
More and more women are finding their way back to the reality of a biblical understanding of Christian womanhood. Already, many Christian wives and mothers have turned their backs on "planned barrenhood," the "me" marriage, "no-fault" child-rearing, careerism, and a host of other nonbiblical, unChristian alternatives. They have made a conscious decision to return to the biblical pattern of womanhood. Mary Pride's book is a source of inspiration and encouragement for every married Christian woman who wants to discover the biblical freedom intended for her life... Before she ... became a Christian in 1977, Mrs. Pride had been active as a radical feminist. From her experience as an insider, she shares a clear assessment of the shortcomings of feminism, and emphasizes the need to develop a new vision of Christian womanhood which is deeply rooted in biblical truth (back cover).

REID, H.M.B.

(NEW!) A Cameronian Apostle: Being Some Account of John Macmillan of Balmaghie (1896)
The author wrote this book "considering the renewed interest taken at present in questions of Church government and establishment," noting that "there seemed to be some room for a detailed treatment of a career which covers so interesting a period as that embraced between 1690 and 1750." Macmillan is an important historical link to those who still fight for Christ's Crown and Covenant. "For many years he fought the battle of the Covenants alone, and he fought it on lines of policy and wisdom." states Reid. Furthermore, the author continues, "I have tried to indicate his position among the 'Suffering Remnant' by calling him 'a Cameronian Apostle;' for, during the long period of 36 years, he was the sole ordained minister among the scattered congregations of the 'Society' people. The name seems not unfitting, and it receives a certain sanction from the authority of Dr. Cunningham, who styled him the 'high-priest' of the Societies... Further, Macmillan's story is also the record of the development of a most interesting side of Scottish Church life. He may be said, indeed, to have made the history of what, at last, became the Reformed Presbyterian Church. This is so true, that that Church long bore the popular name of the 'Macmillanites.' And the name of Macmillan is bound up with more than one congregation still existing." An important book for those who would trace the backsliding of modern Presbyterianism (the neopresbyterians) and also be encouraged by the remnant of those who remain faithful to the position of the original Covenanters (the paleopresbyterians). This book's 308 pages includes illustrations and a detailed appendix containing important church documents.

(NEW!) The Kirk Above Dee Water (1895)
"This little book (128 pages)... embodies a few scattered notices of (the) Balmaghie Church since the year 1615... The dominating figure in the following pages is, of course, the great Macmillan" (Preface). Here "'they went to hear the word of God properly preached' in the Kirk of the Hill Folk, which had never fyled its hands with 'an Erastian Establishment!'" (Introduction). An interesting look at a Covenanter congregation.

REID, JAMES

Memoirs of the Westminster Divines
Covers the lives and writings of a number of the eminent participants of the illustrious Westminster Assembly. James Reid was an Reformed Presbyterian minister who separated from the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland in 1822 due to their relinquishing of the Auchensaugh Renovation as a term of communion. On his death bed he remarked that "he could never have laid his head on a dying pillow" had he remained in the RPC of Scotland after they had jettisoned the Auchensaugh bond. Reid's purpose in writing the Memoirs (originally published in 1811) was to vindicate the character of the witnesses of the second Reformation, whose testimony he upheld. Mr. Reid understood the necessity of defending the character of the witnesses against the assaults of adversaries; because the credibility of a witness's testimony is only as good as his character.

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.

ROBERTS, WILLIAM L.

The Duty of Covenanting, and the Permanent Obligation of Religious Covenants (1853)
Excerpted from the Reformed Presbyterian Catechism below, this book deals with an almost forgotten ordinance of God. It explains what covenants are, while contrasting them with oaths, vows and law. Furthermore, it distinguishes between civil and religious covenants and shows how the individual, family, church or nation can (and should) enter into covenants -- especially religious covenants. Explains why, when and how covenants are binding on posterity, citing abundant Scriptural proof for each assertion made. Here is a sample argument from this book, demonstrating how even covenants made between men are viewed as binding upon posterity by God himself: "Another instance in which posterity is recognized in covenant obligation is found in Joshua 9:15. This covenant was made between the children of Israel and the Gibeonites. Between four and five hundred years after that time, the children of Israel are visited with a very severe famine, in the days of David. 2 Sam. 21:1. And it is expressly declared by the Lord that, 'It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.' And at the same time, v. 2, that very covenant is recognized, and the breach of it is stated, as being the formal reason of the divine displeasure. Now, had it not been for this covenant, the extirpation of the Gibeonites would not have been imputed to Israel as a thing criminal; for they were comprehended in Canaanitish nations, which God had commanded them to root out" (pp. 139-140). Take the time to look these verses up. This subject has great bearing on the unity of the church, the Christian's response to godless covenant-breaking nations, hermeneutics, the family and general faithfulness to God (because many today -- individually, ecclesiastically, and nationally -- are breaking covenants which God still views as binding though they are oblivious to this obligation). Great price too!

ROBERTS, WILLIAM L.

The Duty of Nations, in their National Capacity, to Acknowledge and Support the True Religion (1853)
Excerpted from the Reformed Presbyterian Catechism below, this book deals with the inescapable necessity, of the demand found in the Word of God, for the Civil establishment of Christ and King and Lawgiver over every nation on earth. If you are sick of the cease-fire with humanism, set forth by the syncretistic, Satanic and pragmatic pagan politicians of our day, (those who bargain with votaries of Antichrist [the Pope], publicly tolerate all manner of false religions (e.g. Islam) and idolatry, and compose their policy and draw their pretended authority from the beast [and not the Word of God], this book is for you! For all pagan politics is summed up in the words of the Cameronian (Covenanter) political philosopher Alexander Shields, as "rotting away under the destructive distempers of detestable neutrality, loathsome lukewarmness, declining, and decaying in corruptions, defections, divisions, distractions, confusions; and so judicially infatuated with darkness and delusions, that they forget and forego the necessary testimony of the day" (A HIND LET LOOSE, 1797 edition, p. 20). Pick up this book and begin the political walk in the "footsteps of the flock," traveling the covenanting road of Reformation and Scripture (with the magisterial Reformers of the past)!

ROBERTS, WILLIAM L.

The Reformed Presbyterian Catechism (1853)
A manual of instruction, drawing from such notable authors as William Symington and J.R. Willson, presenting "arguments and facts confirming and illustrating the 'Distinctive Principles'" of the Reformed Presbyterian Church. Chapters deal with: "Christ's Mediatorial Dominion in general;" Christ's exclusive Headship over the Church;" "The Supreme and Ultimate Authority of the Word of God in the Church;" Civil Government, the Moral Ordinance of God;" Christ's Headship over the Nations;" "The Subjection of the Nations to God and to Christ;" The Word, or Revealed Will of God, the Supreme Law in the State;" "The Duty of Nations, in their National Capacity, to acknowledge and support the True Religion:" "The Spiritual Independence of the Church of Christ:" "The Right and Duty of Dissent from an immoral Constitution of Civil Government;" "The Duty of Covenanting, and the Permanent Obligations of Religious Covenants;" "The Application of these Principles to the Governments, where Reformed Presbyterians reside, in the form of a Practical Testimony;" and finally "Application of the Testimony to the British Empire." A most important book, as we approach (possibly) the end of the great apostasy and will be in need of preparing for the dawning of the glorious millennial blessings to come; the days prophesied in which the church "shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings" (Isa. 60:16).

By What Standard? An Analysis of the Philosophy of Cornelius Van Til
Demonstrates that the sovereignty of God is the key to every field, and is the basic premise not only of theology, but of philosophy, science and all knowledge. God (the Creator of all things) and His Word are therefore the only valid principle for the interpretation of all things.

RUSHDOONY, R.J.

By The Messianic Character of American Education

RUSHDOONY, R.J.

The Politics of Guilt and Pity
The entire book will instruct you in the method and content of a Biblical worldview while bringing you further into the glorious freedom of the children of God. Those who walk in wisdom's way become immune to the politics of guilt and pity," writes Schlissel in his foreword. Modern politics is based, not on principles, but on humanistic emotional biases. As a result, politics now uses men rather than providing justice and a biblically based society which upholds God's law and word.

RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

The Power of Faith and Prayer
This book was published posthumously in 1713. This is the first time it has been republished. Those who love the writings of Rutherford will value this book. It is full of his characteristic style of devotional writing. He expounds one of the miracles of Christ and unfolds two great matters which concern the Christian, faith and prayer (back cover).

RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

(NEW!) A Testimony to the Covenanted Work of Reformation Between 1638-1649 in Britain and Ireland
This is Rutherford's dying testimony. It sets forth what he thought most important to communicate in his last earthly words. Rutherford was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly and has been acknowledged by many Reformed theologians since his time as a theological genius of the first order. Walker said of Rutherford, "It is not easy to find any one in Church history with whom to compare this remarkable man... a man of power, I may say of genius, fresh, bold, penetrating, to whom no subject came amiss, teeming with intellectual energy, distinguished for his learning, but never cumbered by it, the greatest scholastic of our Presbyterian Church, and yet we are told, the plain and faithful preacher, the fieriest of Church leaders and the most devout of saints, equally at home among the tomes of Aquinas, and writing letters to a poor congregation. Altogether a sort of intellectual, theological, religious prodigy!" (Theology and Theologians of Scotland 1560-1750
, p. 13). Men graced with Rutherford's abilities, intellect and faith come but once or twice a millennium. Augustine, Calvin and Gillespie are others of this class. If you want to know what one of the greats of church history was thinking just before he went to be with the Lord, pick up this item.

RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL

The Trial and Triumph of Faith
Sermons preached first in Anwoth, and thereafter, in London on the story of the Syrophenician woman. Anyone familiar with Rutherford knows that his work is calculated for great advantage to those who are advanced in the faith. This work was originally published (1645), as Innes writes, in a "time which those who seek to occupy his (Rutherford's) exact standpoint have always looked back to as not only the one golden age of the Church of Scotland, but as the only time when the world around it seemed prepared to join in its triumph" (adapted from Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 306). 406 pages.

S.

(NEW!) The Nature and Duty of Covenanting with God (1850)
The author notes, "the great advantages of covenanting with God are forcibly expressed in the same connection from which we have so often quoted. Deut 26:18,19, 'The Lord hath avouched thee -- to make thee high above all nations, which he hath made in praise, and in name, and in honor; and that thou mayest be a holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.' Those, whether individuals or communities, who 'join themselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant,' have the strongest assurance that it will result to their greatest benefit. 'The mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.' He will make covenanted nations high above all nations..." This booklet presses the high and holy duty of individual and national covenanting with God (and its benefits) -- something which you will not find in contemporary "Christian" bookstores or hear in many pulpits today. Excerpted from the Original Covenanter and Contending Witness
magazine (volumes 3:21-24).

SANDERS, FRANKLIN

Heiland
A futuristic novel in which the Freeman (and their full-orbed covenantal Calvinistic worldview) battle with the antichristian forces of the insiders and their culture of death. Medical ethicist and author, Dr. Ed Payne writes, "You will not be able to put Heiland down (as I could not), as the showdown between the free Christians and the powerful state develops. The outcome is surprising and inspiring for these dark days of our own. A must read!" Comes complete with the following disclaimer; "Nothing in this novel should be construed as an endorsement of political violence as a solution to today's problems in America. I have written this book in order that these things might not occur." This is certainly serious "fiction," and it often leaves you with the impression that you have just read tomorrow's newspaper.

The Anatomy of Secret Sins, Presumptuous Sins, Sin in Dominion, and Uprightness...
"This is a newly retyped reprint of a classic Puritan work on Psalm 19:12, 'Deliver me from secret sins.' This Westminster divine, in typical Puritan fashion, dissects the heart and shows what secret sins are and how they may be discovered" (Joel Beeke in The Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth

SHEDD, W.G.T.

The Doctrine of Endless Punishment
In this work, Shedd carefully expounds the biblical teaching on divine judgment, and sets it in the context of the history of Christian doctrine. He deals carefully and cogently with objections to it. Shedd shows that "the strongest support of the doctrine of endless punishment is the teaching of Christ, the Redeemer of man... without the explicit and reiterated statements of God incarnate, it is doubtful whether so awful a truth would have had such a conspicuous place as it always has had in the creed of Christendom... Christ could not have warned men so frequently and earnestly as he did... had he known there is no future peril..." This book will have a profoundly sobering effect on its readers; but its lasting impression will be to cause a new concern for men and women without Christ, and undying gratitude for "Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come" (dust jacket).

SCHLISSEL, STEVE

Television or Dominion?
Steve Schlissel, in his customarily hard hitting style, attacks what for too many Christians today has become the equivalent of the modern household idol, the television set. Schlissel demonstrates what it means to be a Christian by listing ten specific requirements for Godly living, he also documents how television sidelines the soldiers of Christ and offers practical solutions for withdrawal, from what he terms "Christian crack." This booklet is designed as a helpful handout for those addicted to television and is now being offered at an amazingly low price.

SCOTT, DAVID

Distinctive Principles of the Reformed Presbyterian Church (1841)
This book is not designed to discuss "the (many-RB) doctrines which the Reformed Presbyterian church holds in common will others," but is written to set forth RP distinctives. It tackles its subject from three major heads: "Social Covenanting;" "The Dominion of Christ;" and "The Universal Application of Scripture (civil as well as religious)." It shows that while these doctrines "are held by many, as abstract doctrines of divine truth, they are not embodied in the testimony of any other Christian denomination: nor made necessary to ministerial or Christian fellowship. Although other individuals may hold these doctrine, it is a 'distinctive' feature of the RPC to embody them in her testimony; and to make them terms of communion." It also explains how these are the same distinctives that were maintained "at the era of the reformation, (when) the covenanted church of Scotland bore a distinguished testimony for all the offices of Christ, as prophet, priest and king: and for the pure doctrines, worship, discipline, and government of the house of God." The author states that "the great object aimed at is to help forward the glorious triumph of the Messiah, so beautifully described in the 72nd Psalm. When 'all Kings shall fall down before him; and all nations shall serve him.'"

SPENCER, DUANE

TULIP: The Five Points of Calvinism
TULIP is the popular acronym for the five points of Calvinism, total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance. These five points are not only concisely explained in the light of the Bible but are also helpfully contrasted to the corresponding five points of Arminianism, which originally prompted the Calvinistic five point statement at Dort. Concluding the book are brief charts summarizing the differences between Calvinistic and Arminian beliefs (back cover). A great introductory look at this topic.

STEELE, DAVID, SR.

A Concise History of the Reformed Presbyterian Church from the Middle of the Sixteenth Century and of the Reformed Presbytery from 1840 Till the Present Time
A good introduction to the ongoing battle for Christ's Crown and Covenant. Takes the Protestors side and shows how a faithful remnant remained true to the Biblical principles of covenanted Reformation. Clearly demonstrates how that "(a)mong the nations of Christendom, Scotland stands preeminent in this work of faith and labor of love to God and man. Her National Covenant and its obvious sequel, the Solemn League and Covenant, are memorial columns bearing inscriptions, perhaps more important to mankind than those of the Moabite stone, or the Hieroglyphics of Egypt. Often obscured by defection and apostasy, those inscriptions are not obliterated. They continue to exhibit the Divine institution and mutually independent functions of Church and State a 'Gospel Ministry and Scriptural Magistracy'; their coordination and subservience to the family, as the primary organism in human society. They do also prescribe the duty of all ranks; of the king in his palace and of the humblest citizen in his cottage, to keep up the worship of God, each 'in his person and family.' They moreover contain a Standing Testimony against the heresies, tyrannies and cruelties of Diocesan and Erastian Prelacy; whether misnamed Catholicism or Episcopacy." Here, as with Guthrie's final cry (while standing on the scaffold), the martyrs voice is once again being heard in our lands, "The Covenants! The Covenants! shall yet be Scotland's (the world's, RB) reviving!" Also sets forth the principles contained in the following two statements: "A union without truth is a conspiracy against the truth, in the Church," and "A toleration of all religions is the cut-throat of the true religion, in the state."

STEWART, JAMES and JAMES STIRLING

(NEW!) Naphtali, or The Wrestlings of the Church of Scotland for the Kingdom of Christ, From the Beginning of the Reformation of Religion Unto the Year, 1667. Together with the Last Speeches and Testimonies of some Who have Died for the Truth Since the Year 1660... (1693)
Stewart, a Covenanter lawyer and writer, is characterized by Wodrow as "a great Christian, and an able Statesman, one of the greatest Lawers ever Scotland bred, of universall learning, of vast reading, great and long experience in publick business..." (Analecta II, 205). This book is "(t)he product of joint authorship. The first and logical part of this famous covenanting work was executed by Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees; it bears the stamp of a mind of great vigor and grasp. The narrative portion was written by the Rev. James Stirling of Paisley, whose Recollections form a interesting portion of Wodrow's Analecta. In 1667 the Council issued a proclamation against Naphtali, ordering it to be burned. (Wod., II., 100.) All copies were to be delivered up to the nearest magistrates, and a fine of ten thousand pounds Scots was the penalty inflicted upon any in whose hands the book should afterwards be found. It passed through the flames unscathed only to become dearer than ever to the Scottish hearts. Numerous editions have appeared, edited by such honored names as Dr. Henry Duncan, Ruthwell, Dr. W. Wilson, Carmylie, and others... The Book was translated into Dutch in 1668 by Borstius of Rotterdam...The literature of the covenanting age must not be tried by a severe aesthetic standard. During the persecutions, indeed, it was confined chiefly to protests, declarations, and dying testimonies. In these last, as collected in Naphtali and elsewhere, there is a certain severe, purged simplicity, a pathos and grandeur which move you to your depths. There are not many individual expressions that will bear quotation; the power is in the whole, and you cannot help admiring the manly sense, spirit, calmness, dignity, and piety which distinguished the sufferers to a degree so equal that you fancy them a band of brothers" (cited in Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant

(NEW!) Ecclesiastical Fellowship Versus Free Communion
Works out the implications of open communion by exhibiting its destructiveness to the discipline of the visible church. The author says that open (or free) communion "is the secret enemy of all constitutional government -- of all distinctive truth -- of all purity of worship -- and of all ecclesiastical discipline. "The importance of this subject cannot be overstated. Open communion also militates against both of the following commands: "Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (1 Cor. 1:10) and "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them" (Rom. 16:17).

VAN HALSEMA, THEA B.

This Was John Calvin
"The most lively and readable biography of Calvin available in English," stated Roger Nicole. "Though it reads as smoothly as a well written novel," writes J.H. Kromminga, "it is crammed with important facts. It is scholarly and popular at the same time. The book will hold the interest of the young but will also bring new information to the well informed... This book recognizes the true greatness of the man without falling into distortions of the truth to protect that greatness."

VAN TIL, CORNELIUS

The Defense of the Faith
As attacks on Christianity become more numerous and pronounced, Van Til's classic treatment on apologetics endures as crucial reading for our time. Designed to stop secularists in their tracks, it is the kind of seminal work that serious defenders of the faith cannot afford to ignore. Van Til's treatment of Romanism, Arminianism, less consistent Calvinism or the so-called "classical apologetics," as compared to the Reformed position is also most enlightening. For an easy introduction to Van Til's philosophy see Pratt's Every Thought Captive ($11.95-20%=9.56). Furthermore, Dr. Greg Bahnsen's debate with the atheist Gordon Stein is a prime example of the power of Van Til's presuppositional method (2 cassette set "Does God Exist: The Great Debate," $51.90-70%=$4.77). Van Til started a revolution in Biblical thought by making faithful application of God's word to every area of life. His thinking will continue to influence generations to come. This is one book that every Christian should try to read. (Softcover)

VASS, L.C.

Amusements and the Christian Life
The authors states, " In preparing the following discussion, my aim has been to illustrate great principles by the light of early history for practical effects. All the material used is old; much of it is common to historians and antiquarians, and yet so scattered through and hidden in large works not in general circulation as to be practically inaccessible and unknown. The writer has no knowledge of any essay similar to this." Part one deals with "Popular Amusements and Primitive Christians" and part two with "Lawful Christian Amusements." In short this book answers the question: "What was the relation of our Lord's followers, in the first three centuries, to the amusements of a godless world?" Scripture is also brought to bear upon this most practical question.

VINCENT, THOMAS

The Shorter Catechism Explained From Scripture
In the opinion of B.B. Warfield,the Westminster divines left to posterity not only "the most thoroughly thought out statement ever penned of the elements of evangelical religion" but also one which breathes "the finest fragrance of spiritual religion." Their most influencial work, The Shorter Catechism, was intended a a teaching basis for an introduction to the Christian Faith. No London pastor made more effective use of it than Thomas Vincent (1634-1678) and when his "explanation" was first published in 1674, John Owen, Thomas Watson along with 38 other signatories to the Preface, declared their belief that it would "be greatly useful to all Christians in general." Numerous reprints were to verify their judgement of this Puritan classic (back cover). This is one volume in the Puritan Paperbacks series from Banner of Truth. (Softcover)

VINKE, PETER

Protestants Separated for Christ's Name's Sake (1675, reprinted 1845)
Explains and defends the Reformers reasons for separation from Rome. Exhibits the major points of disagreement, these being the sufficiency of Scripture, the doctrines of grace (salvation), and purity of worship. Elaborates on each major area, explaining the numerous points of division specifically. Provides, for the modern reader, some excellent points to consider concerning which churches to join and which churches to leave. Ultimately comes to the conclusion that "God never did require of us to join with any person or church in their sins; much less that we should sin in order to the obtaining of salvation at his hands. God's rule is, that we should not 'do evil that good may come of it.' (Rom. 3:8) And were the communion with their church never so useful, yet if it cannot be had without sinning, it must not be had at all. If the terms and conditions of communion with them have any thing of sin in them, they had as good tell us that we should fly in the air, or count the sands on the sea-shore; and in case we did not, that then they would not receive us into their communion, or that, being in, they would cast us out. For such things as are morally impossible, (as an assent to any error, or a consent to any false worship, must needs be,) are as unreasonably required of us, as any thing that is naturally impossible could ever be. And if on this account there be a rent from them, the fault is in them that require such things at our hands; as, being contrary to the mind and will of God, cannot be done by us. We, being innocent, nay, commendable in the forbearing of them, (as the innocent person is in the case of a divorce,) must needs be free." Furthermore, "(i)t is sometimes necessary to forsake a visible church. Nay more: it may be necessary to believe and act directly contrary to the authority of the present church," if we are to remain faithful to God. In this regard one more representative quotation is provided: "One would think that washing of hands, and the wearing of broad phylacteries, were matters so indifferent, as that they could not be displeasing unto God, especially when commanded by the church, and recommended too by tradition; yet our Saviour assures us, (though they thought to please God the better by them,) [that] it made all the rest of the Pharisees' worship but vain and unacceptable. (Matt. 15:9) Worship is indeed the marriage-duty which the church of God is to pay unto none but unto Him who is married unto her; (Jer. 3:14;) and God hath declared himself to be "a jealous God," and that he will not permit any creature to partake that marriage-rite together with him. (Exod. 20:5) Hence it is that idolatry is so often called 'adultery,' and a 'going a-whoring from God.' (Ezek. 23:30) And in this, amongst other things, to be sure they agree, that as amongst men for every fault, though heinous ones too, there cannot be a separation between man and wife, but for adultery there may; so God is pleased not to give a bill of divorce to any church or people for any sin so much as for idolatry. When once they become overspread with that sin, then it is that God says unto them, 'Lo-ammi, Ye are not my people.' (Hosea 1:9)."

WAGNER, MICHAEL G.

Paleopresbyterianism Versus Neopresbyterianism (1996)
Defines the major differences between "paleo" or old Presbyterianism (the position held at the Westminster Assembly, 1648) and "neo" or new (modern) Presbyterianism. Maintains and proves that the two major differences are found in the form of subscription (whether complete, as with the "paleo's," or loose [i.e. allowing for scruples], as with the "neo's") to the Westminster standards and in whether or not the Solemn League and Covenant is thought to be binding today (in its moral equity). Wagner also demonstrates how the neopresbyterians have turned away from the original Presbyterian position. The implications of this introductory booklet are far reaching and revolutionary and could easily shake the prevalent neopresbyterian establishment (PCA, OPC, etc.) to its very core.

WATSON, THOMAS

A Body of Divinity Contained in Sermons Upon the Westminster Assembly's Catechism
The first book published by the Banner of Truth Trust, this has been one of the best sellers and consistently the most useful and influential of their publications. There are several reason for this: 1. The subject of the book. It deals with foremost doctrinal and experimental truths of the Christian Faith. 2. The means of instruction used. It is based on the Westminster Assembly's Shorter Catechism, in which the main principles of Christianity that lie scattered in the Scriptures are brought together and set forth in the form of question and answer. This Catechism is unsurpassed for its 'terse exactitude of definition" and logical elaboration' of the fundamentals. 3. The style of the author. Watson conveys his thorough doctrinal and experimental knowledge of the truth in such an original, concise, pithy, pungent, racy, rich and illustrative style that he is rightly regarded as the most readable of the Puritans (backcover). For "part two" of Watson's work on the Shorter Catechism see The Ten Commandments below.

The Doctrine of Repentance
"Knowing what repentance is, and actually repenting are essential to true Christianity. Jesus Christ himself said that if we do not repent, we will perish! It is vital, therefore, to read and study what Scripture has to say about this theme. Few better guides have existed in this or any other area of spiritual experience than Thomas Watson. He was a master of both Scripture and the human heart, and wrote with a simplicity and directness that keeps his work fresh and powerful for the twentieth century.

Watson basically expands on what every well catechized Presbyterian child knows early in life: "That the Word may become effectual to salvation, we must attend thereunto with diligence, preparation, and prayer; receive it with faith and love, lay it up in our hearts, and practise it in our lives" (Answer 90, Westminster Shorter Catechism).

In this book Watson (c. 1620-1686) continues his exposition of the Shorter Catechism drawn up by the Westminster Assembly. Watson was one of the most popular preachers in London during the Puritan era... The series of three volumes, of which this is the second (the Body of Divinity is first and The Lord's Prayer third), makes an ideal introduction to Puritan literature. There are few matters about which the Puritans differ more from present-day Christians than in their assessment of the importance of the ten commandments. The commandments, they held, are the first thing in Christianity which the natural man needs to be taught and they should be the daily concern of the Christian to the last. In this book Watson examines the moral law as a whole as well as bringing out the meaning and force of each particular commandment. In view of the important function of the law in Christian life and evangelism, this is a most valuable volume (backcover).

WEBSTER, WILLIAM

The Church of Rome at the Bar of History
The Church of Rome has long maintained that she is changeless in her message and authority, standing from the first, and through the ages, by one faith. William Webster analyses this claim and shows from the facts of history that this claim is unfounded and that modern Roman Catholicism is not only different from, but contrary to, what the early church fathers taught. Webster's writing is not harsh, but rather warm as he writes with a heart-felt interest in the welfare of the men and women who are now in a position which was once his own.

Deals with such diverse issues as revelation, translation, creation, prophecy, and the role of women in the church. Weeks provides careful analysis of the biblical teaching in these areas, giving "depth criticism" of much of the superficial and false thinking expressed in some contemporary discussions of these questions.

WILKINSON, HENRY

The Pope of Rome is Antichrist (1675, 1845 edition)
Calvin (on I John 2:18) writes, "Those that think that he (Antichrist) would be just one man, are dreaming! For Paul... plainly shows that it would be a body or a kingdom (II Thes. 2:3). He first foretells a falling away that would spread throughout the whole Church... Then he makes the head of this apostasy the adversary of Christ who would sit in God's temple and claim divinity and divine honours. Unless we deliberately want to err, let us learn to know Antichrist from Paul's description" (Cited in Nigel Lee, 666: Luther and Calvin's Doctrine of Antichrist: Antichrist in Scripture [Focus Christian Ministries, 1992], p. 58). Wilkinson's book takes the classic Protestant position, called "historicism;" held by Luther, Calvin, Knox, the Westminster Divines, and most other Protestants, until the Jesuit inspired "futurist" and "preterist" systems began to gain ground, when Reformation hermeneutics waned. Shows how Protestants prove that the Pope is that "Antichrist" and "man of sin" set forth in Scripture. Deals with the mystery of iniquity, the great apostasy, and practical applications of the doctrines examined.
