In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive.

It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned.

Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less the extreme caliber of its contents.

In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it.

"I have been systematically working through reading the Puritan and Reformed CDs I purchased.

I must say, there is nothing like them available anywhere.

It is the most amazing collection of works I know of in one package to date.

In my opinion, it far surpasses Ages Software and their collections.*

The Puritan and Reformed material presented on these CDs is exceptional.

I am continually amazed at the depth and breadth of information in both collections, and the rarity of works that I now have at my fingertips.

You have done an immeasurable service for the Kingdom of Christ in making these CDs available, and every pastor and theologian should own them without question (they would be foolhardy to pass them by)."

* It is SWRB's opinion that Ages has done an excellent job in making various Reformed works available on CD, so much so that we also distribute a number of their CDs at discounts. Thus, please don't make more out of our publishing this comment than is warranted, as this is a comment we received from one of our customers and it expresses his opinion. As for Ages' work, we rejoice whenever the truth is published, whether through others or through SWRB (as we play only a very small part in the revival of classic Reformation, Puritan and Covenanter thought that is now taking place worldwide through God's marvelous grace). The publication of the best Reformers and Puritans of the past is one of the greatest needs of our time, as this extends the blessings that come through faithful preachers and authors into our day and into the future. Lord willing, the growth in the publishing of faithful works from the past will help stem the tide of the great declension and unfaithfulness which we are now witnessing all around us, even (sadly) among many churches that still call themselves "Presbyterian" and/or "Reformed." So please pray together with us that our Lord will multiple the number of faithful publishers and publications, and that He will give many the heart to stand for the truth no matter the consequences (as He has done for our faithful forefathers, who resisted Satan and sin unto blood and even to martyrdom in many cases). -- RB.

"SWRB's Puritan and Reformation CD libraries are an invaluable source for the study of the history and theology of classic Reformation theology. The collection is remarkable not only for depth of content, but also for the rarity of many of the works. Most seminary libraries will not have even a percentage of the works available on these CD-ROMs. I cannot imagine anyone working in Reformation / historical theology that would not want to use the Puritan and Reformed libraries!"

"I just received your CD collection. One bit of advice: you should instruct your customers to take about 1 week off just to peruse the tables of contents for these CD's, followed by another week off, in order to recover from the state of shock in which they will find themselves.

In all seriousness, this collection is almost impossible to describe. It has to be seen to be believed. As a pastor, my library has just increased dramatically. As a Ph.D. student in Puritan and Post-Reformation studies, I have immediate access to many of the same works for which I would normally need to access through rare book rooms of theological libraries.

Thank you for this labor of love. Thank you for making it accessible, both financially and technologically. May the Lord richly bless you for this service to his people."

"You all are doing a wonderful service by making all these materials so readily available. Having them on my hard drive is BETTER than having access to a rare book library with all of them in hand...

"It's been several weeks now since I received the CDs and have had some time to digest some of them. All I can say is, "WOW!" This is truly a library like no other, and has already paid great dividends not only in my own personal worship and study, but in my teaching as well. I first balked at the price, but after seeing the vastness of the material, I almost feel as though I'm robbing you!

I pray that the Lord will allow you to get these materials into the hands of as many ministers as possible."

Full SWRB CD comment from Dr. Moore:

This collection of 62 CDs is a truly astounding accomplishment. There is nothing like this available to the ordinary Christian on the whole face of the earth.

Now, for the first time ever, ordinary Christians can have direct and near effortless access to the very cream of Puritan and Reformed, as well as Covenanter, literature.

These books are often in fascinating first editions and many are electronically linked and indexed for the first time. The ordinary Christian may here dig into a simply staggering wealth of literature, from devotional and sermonic material to technical and scholarly works. Even in the days of the Long Reformation itself ordinary Christians didn't get to see this kind of library -- most couldn't read for a start, and even those who could, would never have been able to afford to buy even a hundredth part of the material on these CDs. Truly we are without excuse!

And the significance of this collection goes even beyond that. No longer do we have to wait for modern Reformed publishing houses to predict that a particular Reformation or Puritan book will be sufficiently popular to make it economical to reprint, or to deem it "safe" enough to be let loose on the modern evangelical church. Rather, we are now able to see for ourselves the whole range of the Puritan and Reformed publishing enterprise, including views that are usually suppressed by most modern devotees of "Puritan" piety!

Buy these CDs while you can, and find out for yourself what the First and Second Reformations were really all about! You'll be truly amazed, and, by God's grace, will grow from being an ordinary Christian to being an extraordinary one. What they used to say of the Puritan John Flavel's preaching, can be said of these CDs: they are "hissing hot"!

(Scholar of 16th and 17th century Calvinistic literature.)

"This side of eternity I'll never be able to repay the favor you have done mankind by bringing these... CDs together.

The first week of reading I grew more as a Christian reading those rich, pure Gospel Commentators than I have in 18 years of Christian life. After reading some of the Puritan CDs I have to get the Reformation set if it kills me. A fire is burning within me. These... CDs are liable to start a revival fire unseen in any generation... the Gospel in its pure form is seen in these... CDs.

Sir, I cant say enough. What a treasure! I'll never be able to repay you this side of heaven, but when we get there I am sure you will see the rich fruits of your labor. God bless you for not being money hungry but wanting to see Christians grow in the Lord... I love you even though we have never met, you have helped me in my Christian walk tremendously with these... CDs.

I am not bragging on the flesh, I am just giving honor where honor is due. The Holy Ghost will take these CDs and light a fire unseen and unheard of. God bless you all at Still Waters."

- Email from the USA

"Thank you so very much for the CDs.

I am amazed at the quality and quantity of the literature...

I cannot imagine any other single thing being done by any man or group of men in the earth today that is of such extensive, present, and enduring value as this CD work is.

God be praised that he uses sickly and weak men to forward his kingdom, that the work may not be mistaken to be wrought by the might of men, but by his Spirit. His strength is perfected in weakness."

A Dissertation on the Prophecies, That Have Been Fulfilled, Are Now Fulfilling, or Will Hereafter Be Fulfilled Relative to the Great Period of 1260 Years; The Papal and Mohammedan Apostacies; The Tyrannical Reign of Antichrist, or the Infidel Power; and the Restoration of the Jews

(2 volumes, 1811)


Defends classic historicist postmillennialism and its position relative to the 1260 year period mentioned in Scripture.


In the author's words,


(t)reats of a subject peculiarly interesting to every serious Protestant: for the famous period of 1260 prophetic days, so frequently mentioned by Daniel and St. John, comprehends the tyrannical reign of those three great opponents of the Gospel: Popery, Mohammedism, and Infidelity. This period indeed may not improperly be styled the permitted hour of the powers of darkness; since the Church is represented as being in an afflicted and depressed state during the whole of its continuance, and since its expiration will be marked by a signal display of the judgments of God upon his enemies and by the commencement of a new and happy order of things.


Understanding the Reformation position on eschatology, as it is set forth in this work, gives us great insight as to why the Romanists (i.e. the Jesuits in particular) were so intent on planting both Preterism (Alcasar, c. 1615) and Futurism (Ribera, c. 1585) among the Protestants. 583 pages.

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 Confessional standards are being abandoned, and why their is general turmoil all about, this book will certainly help to give you the clear and sobering answer.

Jonah: His Life, Character, and Mission (1963 reprint)


According to Joseph C. Holbrook, Jr., "It would be hard to find an exposition of Scripture as worthy of re-issue as Fairbairn's work on the prophet Jonah. Although it is well over a century old it is as fresh and stimulating today as it was then. When the commentary was nearly 50 years old, the greatest preacher of his day, Charles H. Spurgeon, called it 'by far the ablest English treatise on this prophet.' The present writer can testify that his long search in used book stores in Great Britain and this country was amply repaid when he laid his hands on this precious little volume. As he had learned that there was no exposition of the prophet Ezekiel that could compare with Fairbairn's, he quickly learned that no serious preaching from the book of Jonah could be done without a reference to the work of this faithful expositor of God's Word."


Holbrook adds that "the comments of this long-departed worthy from the hills of Scotland will hold an honored place on the shelves of many a preacher who proclaims God's truth to a modern day generation."


Fairbairn himself writes in the preface that "the consideration of the book of Jonah, besides the other advantages it yields, furnishes some sure and well-defined landmarks for guiding our way to a sound interpretation of the word of prophecy." 


At the end of the book, Fairbairn draws some lessons for Christians to learn from Jonah's life. For example, he points out that God may have certain Christians serve Him in ways different from what those Christians expected. "The field in which they are destined to reap most fruit, may possibly not be the one which they are themselves disposed to choose -- it may not even be that which has received the largest share in their prayers and personal application. As generally 'the times of men are before appointed by God, and the bounds of their habitations are set,' so in particular his most faithful and honoured servants are often shut up by him into peculiar, and by themselves entirely unsought channels of usefulness" (p. 186). This kind of information helps the reader to apply insights from Jonah to his own life.

Prophecy Viewed in Respect to Its Distinctive Nature, Its Special Function, and Proper Interpretation (1865)


A 532-page manual of interpretation focusing on prophecy. Full of applications, it makes for interesting reading. Fairbairn elevates prophetic discussion by helping us to "look into the very nature of God, to behold in his light the laws of eternity, according to which he governs the church and the world," which is "something infinitely higher than a mere knowledge of the future" (Hengstenberg). The sections on the Papacy and Antichrist are some of the best writing on this topic. This book is light years ahead of the modern mush and drivel that is peddled by the prophetic speculators of our day!

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 a larger work like David Steele's

The Revelation of Law in Scripture (1869, reprinted 1996)
Fairbairn expounds the biblical teaching dealing with the law of God in creation, throughout the Mosaic administration, in the teaching of our Lord, and in the life of the Christian believer. John Murray said of this book, "The Revelation of Law in Scripture
places the law of God in its proper perspective. The careful perusal of this volume should correct the misconceptions which have afflicted the thought of many, and should promote the understanding of the sanctity of God's law without which the gospel of grace is meaningless."

Typology of Scripture
This classic work thoroughly examines typology, not only as a biblical and theological subject, but also in its connection with the development of all Christian doctrine. It is Fairbairn's crowning achievement. Barber called it "the best ever written on this subject." Brookman said that it was "the most conclusive evangelical work on typology."

An Humble Attempt in Defence of Reformation Principles; Particularly on the Head of the Civil Magistrate (1770)


The title continues: "Wherein the gross falsehoods, calumnies, and imposed sense, palmed by Mr. John Goodlet, upon the Testimony emitted by the Reformed Presbytery, are exposed and confuted; and said Testimony vindicated. As also, the seceding scheme of political principles more fully detected;-- and discovered to be inconsistent with the law of nature, light of divine revelation, and covenanted testimony of the Church of Scotland."


Goold, in his The Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland: Its Origin and History 1680-1876, writes of Fairly and this book,


He was very zealous and outspoken in his maintenance of Church principles, and unsparing in his condemnation and exposure of the shortcomings of other denominations. This caused him to be both feared and disliked by many outside of his own communion; yet by the ministers who were nearest his residence, and who came most frequently in contact with him, he was greatly esteemed. He was fearless of consequences in the discharging of his duties. On one occasion, when in Ireland, his scathing exposure of Popery so irritated the Catholics, that three of them resolved to disturb his next meeting by musical instruments (and remember that no faithful Presbyterian used this "badge of Popery" -- musical instruments -- in their public meetings--RB). They came prepared to do this, but were so overcome by the grave dignity of the man, and by the truth he spoke, that they could do nothing but quietly listen. Two of them, it is said, became earnest Protestants. On another occasion he denounced 'unpreaching bishops,' and declared that his Lordship of Bangor was worse than Balaam's ass, which spoke once at least, and rebuke the madness of the prophet. Some were so highly offended that they resolved to waylay and stone the preacher. Mr. Fairly was aware of this, but refused to change his route. As he approached the ambuscade, a dispute arose as to his identity; some held that it was the object of their hate, others said, 'No, never a bit of him; who ever saw a mountain minister ride such a good horse?' and while they disputed he got beyond their reach. One who knew him writes thus: 'I had some knowledge of the elder Fairley; he fearlessly attacked the reigning follies of his age, and preached the Gospel in a familiar but forcible style of eloquence. In his great field days, and when contending for the Testimony of the Martyrs, he was unsparing in the use of arrows, oft broke a lance with the Pope, and drove rusty nails into our venerable Establishment, and lashed the Secession and Relief for their declensions.' so pointed was his dealing with the sins of the times, that many left his meetings when he came to the application of his discourse... He took part in the controversy with the Seceders, and published a pamphlet in reply to Goodlet, the Anti-burgher minister of Sanquhar, in which he gives a scathing exposure of the weakness and inconsistency of his opponent, and directs against him all his resources of humour and sarcasm, as well as the weightier weapons of solid argument. But it was in proclaiming the riches of the glorious Gospel to cast audiences under the open canopy of heaven, that the power of Fairley was fully disclosed. He was undoubtedly the preacher among the 'Four Johns.' He had a commanding presence, a well-furnished mind, and a fluent and forcible utterance; and when he warmed to his grand theme, his words moved the hearts of the crowds that had gathered around him, and many owned him as their spiritual father (pp. 221-222).

Edwards, Whitefield, the True Nature of Revival and the "Old Time" Charismatics (1742)
Originally titled "A Review of the Preface to a Narrative of the Extraordinary Work at Kilsyth...," this book exposes the deficiencies of shallow revivalism and warns against what today would be called charismatic excesses. It contrasts these weaknesses with the true nature and fruit of salvation (from a Reformed perspective), and specifically deals with some of the less than Scriptural antics of George Whitefield ("a Priest of the Church of England, who refuses to be reformed," Fisher notes) and those Presbyterians that would hear him (occasional hearing). Some of Jonathan Edwards' revival methods also warrant rebuke in this piece. At one point Fisher writes that Edwards' defense of these works uses "exactly the language of Quakers, a branch of that hellish scheme, calculated for enervating and overthrowing the divine authority of the Word, as it is the only foundation of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ" (p. 19). He also notes "that Edwards wants to set aside the Word, as the only rule, at least, in judging and trying this work" (i.e. the "revivals" at Kilsyth and Cambuslang). The work also exposes the defective nature of "revivals" that deal with only personal reformation, leaving off any thought of (or actively burying) the more public concerns that have been prominent in past reformations. Fisher writes, "But can any of the promoters of this work allege for themselves, that they are making the least essay towards public Reformation, as it has been owned and professed in these lands? Nay, as shall afterwards be made appear, they are doing what they can to obliterate the memory of Scotland's covenanted Reformation, and to raze all concern thereanent out of the minds of the people" (p. 26). In short, the defective nature of these past "revivals," are shown to "overthrow the very foundation of faith, and all practical godliness and to establish mere enthusiasm and strong delusion, in the room of true religion, revealed and required in the Word." This work is also useful in evaluating the "laughing revival" (or "Toronto blessing") of our day. 68 pages.

The Westminster Assembly's Shorter Catechism Explained, By Way of Question and Answer (1753, 1911 edition)

The title continues: "Wherein it is essayed to bring forth the truths of God contained in that excellent composure, more fully than has been attempted in any one of the explicatory Catechisms hitherto published...."

Dr. M'Crie writes, "(t)his well-known work was very generally employed by ministers as their test-book at the public examinations of their people, when both old and young were duly catechised. This was, in fact, a profound system of divinity, and was especially devoted to an explanation of the Marrow doctrines" (cited in the Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 474).

Mackay notes that it "displays a rich fund of sound theological practical erudition; and it soon became, and still continues to be, the favorite religious manual in thousands of Scotland's religious families, and had associated his name (i.e. Fisher--RB) with the Erskines especially as a household word" (Ibid.).

We have also added in the original sections of this book that were taken out by the backsliding (American) Presbyterians that published this later edition. And what they left out is very telling about their defection from Reformation attainments. Among other things they deleted sections dealing with worship (iconoclasm), national covenanting, civil government, toleration, capital punishment (as proved from Old Testament case law), baptism, etc. We have placed all these previously excluded questions and answers in a separate section at the front of the book so that it will be easy for you to see what these unfaithful editors did not want you to see. Thus, you still get the benefit of the superior typesetting of this later edition, with the full text as the original (more Reformed) authors intended it.

The Works of John Flavel

(1820 ed., 6 Volumes)


John Flavel was a noted minister in seventeenth century England. His father, Richard Flavel, was also a minister. Richard Flavel was imprisoned for preaching in private worship services, which had been declared illegal by the evil tyrant King Charles II, and although subsequently released, he had caught the plague in prison, and died.


Although for much of his life John Flavel was a settled minister in Dartmouth, he also spent some of his ministry conducting "illegal" worship services during those periods when King Charles' persecuting fury was at its height against God's faithful people (cf. Antipharmacum Saluberrimum: A Serious and Seasonable Caveat to all the Saints in This Hour of Temptation, which includes Flavel's comments on separation from truly unlawful services [in terms of biblical teaching], which we have retitled, A Warning Against Backsliding, False Worship and False Teachers, and also republished in a separate volume from this set).


Flavel was popular with both the common people he served as well as fellow ministers. He was known as a holy and gifted man of God. Many people were blessed not only by his preaching and private discussions, but also his published writing. The following quotation from "The Life of John Flavel," a piece found at the beginning of the first volume in this set, gives an example of the effect of Flavel's writing:


"Mr. Flavel being in London in 1673, his old bookseller, Mr. Boulder, gave him this following relation, viz. That some time before, there came into his shop a sparkish gentleman to enquire for some play-books; Mr. Boulder told him he had none, but shewed him Mr. Flavel's little treatise of 'Keeping the Heart,' intreated him to read it, and assured him it would do him more good than play books. The gentleman read the title, and glancing upon several pages here and there, broke out into these and such other expressions, What a damnable Fanatic was he who made this book? Mr. Boulter begged of him to buy and read it, and told him he had no cause to censure it so bitterly; at last he bought it, but told him he would not read it. What will you do with it then, said Mr. Boulter? I will tear and burn it, said he, and send it to the Devil. Mr. Boulder told him, that he should not have it. Upon this the gentleman promised to read it; and Mr. Boulder told him, if he disliked it upon reading, he would return him his money. About a month after, the gentleman came to the shop again in a very modest habit, and with a serious countenance, bespoke Mr. Boulder thus; Sir, I most heartily thank you for putting this book into my hands; I bless God that moved you to do it, it has saved my soul; blessed be God that ever I came into your shop. And then he bought a hundred more of those books of him, and told him he would give them to the poor who could not buy them, and so left him, praising and admiring the goodness of God. Thus it pleased God to bless the sermons, discourses and writings of Mr. Flavel" (Vol. 1, pp. xiii-xiv, emphases added).


The writings of Flavel continue to bless God's people today.

"The repeated editions of Flavel's Works bear their own witness to his popularity. He was a favorite with Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield (who ranked him with John Bunyan and Matthew Henry), and, a century later, with... R.M. M'Cheyne and Andrew Bonar" (BT cat. note).


In Cyclopaedia Bibliographica, A Library Manual of Theological and General Literature (http://www.swrb.com/catalog/d.htm), James Darling notes that Flavel was "ejected for conformity in 1662," and that "he was a man of exemplary piety, in doctrine a Calvinist; an experimental, affectionate, practical, and popular writer" (p. 1144).


All of Flavel's works were originally written in the seventeenth century, but this collection of his works is much easier to read as it is retypeset in the common style of the early nineteenth century (being the 1820 edition). There are approximately 3,667 total pages in this set of six volumes.

FLEMING ( see HAY FLEMING, DAVID under "H" author section)


The First Principles of Apocalyptical Interpretation (1848)


A short defense of the historicist postmillennial position, which was held by almost all of the Reformers. Explains that historicism deals with the great whore that rides the beast of Revelation as the symbolic representations referring to "the ecclesiastical government of the Papacy, or the apostate church of Rome," and the Roman Empire respectively. Holds to and defends a late date for the writing of the book of Revelation (which was the generally accepted position, concerning the dating of the book of Revelation, of early church for about the first three centuries after Christ). This is the postscript, excerpted from Fleming's complete treatise The Rise and Fall of the Papacy below.

The Fulfilling of the Scripture (1726, 5th ed. corrected)
The title continues: "Complete; In Three Parts. Part 1. An Essay showing the exact Accomplishments of the Word of God in his Works of Providence, performed, and to be performed, for confirming Believers, and convincing Atheists of the present Time. As also many rare Histories of the Works and Servants of God in the Church of Christ. Part 2. The Faithfulness of God considered and cleared, in the great Event of his Word. Part 3. The great Appearances of God for his Church under the New Testament; with many choice Speeches of suffering and dying Christians. Together With Some Memoirs of the Author's Life; in a Sermon preached on the Occasion of his Death. By the late Learned Daniel Burgess. To Which is added an Index, Alphabetically digested, of all the principal Matters contained in the Three Parts; and at the Beginning of the Work a Table of Scot's Phrases, which often occur in reading Mr. Fleming's, Mr. Rutherford's, Mr. Durham's, and other Scot's Author's Works." Spurgeon writes of this book, "It is an elaborate treatise upon the fact that the Scriptures are fulfilled and the word of the Lord is true. As such it deserves the high encomiums so freely showered upon it by the eminent divines of Fleming's own time, and it abundantly justifies the issue of so many editions" (as cited in Johnston, , Treasury of the Scottish Covenant
, p. 370). Grant comments, "Fleming is best known for The Fulling of Scripture... an elaborate work in three parts, in which he traces the outworking of Scripture truth in church history and Christian experience" (Cameron, ed., Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology, p. 325). The introductory note, signed by Thomas Ridgley, Daniel Neal and 19 others, states, "Fleming is universally known to have been a person of singular worth and piety, and his works declare him a diligent and careful observer of the providences of God towards his Church and people. Many such instances, which no other author has taken notice of, and which, were they not well attested (speaking of the "miraculous" and "prophetic" occurrences that sometimes arise in history--RB), would appear almost incredible, are to be met with in his book, called The Fulfilling of Scripture. A performance which has so far entitled itself to the esteem of all serious Christians, as not to need our recommendation." 484 pages.

The Rise and Fall of the Papacy (1848)

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

The Hierarchical Bishops Claim to a Divine Right, Tried at the Scripture-Bar (1699)
"Ordained at Alva in 1664 he initially conformed to episcopacy, but on reading John Brown of Wamphray's Apologetical Relation
he became a convinced Presbyterian and joined the ranks of the conventicle preachers... Forrester's experience in both camps well equipped him for the ecclesiastical controversies of the day. A prolific if painstaking writer, he became one of the ablest advocates of Presbyterianism," writes Grant (Cameron, ed., Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology, p. 331). This book exposes the "bold perverting of the Scriptures pleaded by them (the Prelates--RB); vindicating the sound sense of the Scriptures... and the judgment of Protestant writers. The whole issuing in a clear discovery of the solid grounds of Presbyterian government, in opposition to Prelacy," as the subtitle states. 342 pages.

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

This the only complete eight volume edition of Foxe's classic work in print, of which we are aware! A very rare set, now back in print after more than 150 years!

"No book ever inflicted a wound so deep and incurable on the Romish system of superstition and bloody persecution... (it) was placed in... all churches and chapels throughout the kingdom, by order of Queen Elizabeth." (Smith, Select Memoirs [$US19.99 P; $US29.00 HP], p. 245). The complete eight volume edition contains much information not found in any of the liberally edited and severely shortened versions of this classic work which are in print today -- in fact, most of the modern editions have left out over 6000 pages. Covering martyrs from the early church through to Foxe's day, it was one of the most influential books of the sixteenth century!

The testimony of the martyrs was extraordinary. Their impact was greatly increased through the industrious writing of John Foxe... Never before had such a work on such a scale appeared in English, certainly never at such a moment... Along with the Bible, Foxe's Book of Martyrs became a family book in many homes. Foxe's Acts and Monuments (the formal title of his extensive chronicle on the martyrs) was the principal practical means of turning England to Protestantism (Who are the Puritans?, pp. 35-36).

Broadening the scope of this testimony, the British Academy also notes,

The Acts and Monuments of the English Martyrs was second only to the English Bible as a formative influence on the language and culture of this country.

Most importantly, though, this book overflows with faith building testimony of the power of God to overcome the most cruel and barbarous acts of human depravity and demonic cruelty. 6890 pages.

The full title of this edition was (spelling has been updated): Acts and Monuments of These Latter and Perilous Day, Touching Matters of the Church, Wherein Are Comprehended and Describes the Great Persecutions and Horrible Troubles That Have Been Wrought and Practised by the Romish Prelates, Specially In This Realm of England and Scotland, From the Year of Our Lord A Thousand, Unto the Time Now Present. Gathered and Collected According To the True Copies and Writings Certified As Well Of the Parties Themselves That Suffered, As Also Out of the Bishops Registers, Which Were the Doers Thereof, by John Foxe

FRASER, JAMES (of Alness)

A Treatise on Sanctification

This book is also available on Calvinism Bookshelf CD volume 13 (3 for 1 CD SUPER SALE) at: http://www.swrb.com/Puritan/calvinism-bookshelf-CDs.htm


The Lawfulness and Duty of Separation from Corrupt Ministers and Churches Explained and Vindicated (1744)


This is one of the most comprehensive treatises dealing with the lawfulness and duty of separation. It does not shy away from the hard biblical questions, but rather meets them head on. Fraser covers all the major biblical reasons for separation, both in general and in particular. Some of these Scriptural reasons for separation include (examples in parentheses are selected to fit our contemporary situation in accord with the general headings found in the book -- though a number of these specific errors are also dealt with in the book itself):


1. Heresy, or error in doctrine (e.g. Arminianism, Pelagianism, Romanism, the denial of the regulative principle of worship, the denial of justification by faith alone through grace alone by Christ alone, antinomianism, legalism, etc.)

2. Idolatry in public worship (e.g. singing hymns of human composition, paedocommunion and open communion, the use of musical instruments, women speaking or preaching in public worship, anti-paedobaptism, Charismatic [or anabaptistic] folly and excesses, malignancy [anti-covenanting], etc.)

3. Tyranny in government (e.g. Popery, Prelacy, Independency, etc.)

4. Sinful terms of communion (e.g. any terms which deny or ignore the attainments of the covenanted Reformation or in any way contravene Scripture)

5. Tolerationism (e.g. refusing to discipline the scandalous, open communion and countenancing false ministers or false governments or false doctrine, etc.).


Many other areas are also dealt with, not the least of which include a strong testimony against the Prelatical Priest George Whitefield (who, as the preface notes, is "a person leavened with gross errors, enthusiastic delusions, etc.").


In the publisher's original reasons for publication we read,


In this book the case and nature of schism and separation is cleared, and the true scriptural terms of church-communion, and grounds of separation from corrupt churches and ministers, carrying on backsliding courses from the covenanted Reformation-principles..., are clearly handled, and the same proven to be just and warrantable grounds of separation, and many useful cases of conscience concerning separation; and what are just and warrantable grounds of separation and what are not, are solidly, learnedly, and accurately discussed and resolved, and the case of separation clearly stated, handled and determined; and separation from corrupt ministers and churches is fully vindicated; and the true Scripture marks of time-servers and hirelings, who should be separated from, are given from the Word of God.


Calvin, Knox, Rutherford, Gillespie, Durham, Owen (who repented of his Independency and embraced Presbyterianism just before he died) and a host of other notable Reformers are cited throughout. Occasional hearing and occasional communion are also exposed and rebuked from Scripture. Appended to the book is:


The Reasons agreed upon by the Reformers of the Church of Scotland, For which the Book of Common Prayer, urged upon Scotland, Anno 1637 was refused. As also the Reasons agreed upon by the Assembly of Divines at Westminster, for laying aside the English Book of Common Prayer. Together with Mr. George Graham's Renunciation and Abjuration of Episcopacy.


This is an almost flawless photocopy of this exceedingly rare and valuable book (which was obtained at great expense from the Bodleian Library [Oxford University] in England). It is one of the major Reformed classics concerning the topics that it addresses and it answers many common questions which Christians raise today regarding church affiliation. It is also a much needed landmark of Reformation testimony against the white devils of Independency and sectarianism and the black devils of Popery and Prelacy -- which can be seen to be covering the land once again -- contrary to the teaching of the Word of God and the attainments fought (and died) for during the second Reformation. 239 pages.

Washington in the Lap of Rome (1888)


"Romanism is Antichrist, pure and simple" (p. 33). Justin D. Fulton doesn't mince his words in this book (of 265 pages) expressing concern over the growing influence of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States in the late 1800s. 


Fulton is just as sharp describing Ignatius Loyola's wounding, before Loyola conceived of creating the Jesuit Order:

"A cannon-shot hit the leg of a scoundrel instead of his head, as in Spain he stood before Pampileuno's walls. For religion, catholicity and man, that was the unluckiest cannon-shot recorded in history; for when the tibia of the wounded patient knitted they marvelously supported the body of a man who with the heart of a devil has been permitted to masquerade in the robes of a saint" (p. 36, Of course we don't believe in "luck" as such -- ed.).

Speaking of the Jesuits themselves, Fulton writes,

"They work in darkness, and they oppose the truth. . . . Their history is a continued series of associations, massacres of innocent people, conspiracies and machinations against existing laws and orders. The masses they have incited to revolt, and the rulers to bloody and fruitless wars. Corruption they sow broadcast over the land in order to further their doctrines of treason, perjury, falsehood, and murder" (p. 46). 


Fulton's concern in this book can be expressed in his own words: "Romanism is advancing through our open gates like a mighty force, bulldozing and corrupting our legislators, and demanding privileges and exemptions for itself which no other sect would do" (p. 52). "Rome climbs to power because it is joined to every form of evil, is in league with the enemy of all righteousness, and runs with the multitude in evil-doing" (p. 66). 


"Rome is the absolute and irreconcilable foe of the United States" (p. 114). With this in mind, Fulton includes one whole chapter arguing that Abraham Lincoln's assassination was a Romish plot. He also includes a chapter briefly outlining the history of the Huguenots. 


"Romanism is a lie, coined in hell, and built up as a system through the machinations of Satan. It must be resisted, and Romanists must be warned of their peril, because they who believe in such error are damned" (p. 210). 


There are some troubling aspects to the book that arise from Fulton's acceptance of certain American liberal principles, such as support for the Roger Williams version of religious freedom (cf. Henry Dexter's, Roger Williams and His 'Banishment' from the Massachusetts Plantation; With a Few Further Words Concerning the Baptists, the Quakers, and Religious Liberty(1876), http://www.swrb.com/catalog/D.htm, and Samuel Rutherford's A Free Disputation Against Pretended Liberty of Conscience (1649), http://www.swrb.com/catalog/R.htm), and support for American public schools (see Gregg Harris', The Christian Home School, http://www.swrb.com/catalog/H.htm, and Reg Barrow's, Godless Public Education and Sin, FREE at: http://www.swrb.com/newslett/actualnls/CRTPubliced.htm). But overall, the focus of the book is against Roman Catholicism, and its dangerous influence in American politics.


Fulton, of course, opposes the papacy. "The Pope always stands for a lie. His feet are planted on a lie. If there were no lie there would be no Pope" (p. 235).


He notes that these are important issues: "Say not that these questions of dogma should be left to theological disputants. They belong to the people. They influence life. They shape destiny" (p. 240).


This book cries out for Americans to take a stand in opposition to the Romish Church. "Shall Americans contend for the truth or betray it? This is the question of this hour, and of all hours" (p. 191). 


"Will Americans rise to the level of their great opportunity and do their whole duty? or will they bow down to Rome, and barter away their God-given rights? This is the question of the hour! How will it be answered? Shall men be taught error, or the truth? Remember, 'as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.' Think right, and all will be well. Think wrong and act wrong, and ruin awaits you" (p. 246). 


In sum, "Washington, the centre of political influence and activity, is in the lap of Rome, with the consent of the people. Let there be a protest. Unroof the monster, Jesuitism" (p. 247).
