THE THEOLOGY OF MISSIONS IN THE PURITAN TRADITION
A Study of Representative Puritans: Richard Sibbes, Richard Baxter, John Eliot, Cotton Mather & Jonathan Edwards
Sidney H. Rooy

"A masterful examination of the Puritan's positive attitude toward missions and evangelism, showing their passionate desire to seek the salvation of the lost. Through the writings of five notable Puritans: Richard Sibbes, Richard baxter, John Eliot, Cotton Mather and Jonathan Edwards, Rooy explores Puritan missiology in its theological foundation, its development and establishment, and its progress. Individuals and churches alike will be inspired by this historical and theological survey of magisterial Puritans." - Joel Beeke

"Of excellent quality throughout, this volume traces out the theology that leads to the evangelization of the world: divine sovereignty and human responsibility, conversion, and the role of the church in missions. The biographical sketches enhance the volume. This is all rich material. Highlights for me are the practical section on evangelism from Richard Baxter's 'A Christian Directory' and the preceptive analysis of Jonathan Edwards' book 'A History of Redemption,' which the author suggests is perhaps Edwards' best claim to originality in theology. I commend this volume highly." - Erroll Hulse

CHRIST'S VICTORIOUS KINGDOM
Postmillenialism Reconsidered
John Jefferson Davis

"Many otherwise good and capable pastors shy away from preaching and teaching eschatology, allowing their flocks to be plundered by charlatans, thieves and false prophets. It is time for faithful shepherds to reclaim a biblical eschatology and nourish their flocks with the encouragement and hope that only the Scriptures can provide. In this volume, John Jefferson Davis provides a useful tool for beginning that great and needed work." - Bruce Ray

Dr. Davis has served at Gordon-Conwell South Hamilton since 1975. An active member of both the local and broader community, he has taken leadership roles in various organizations relating to children and families. These leadership roles have included serving as chairman of the Board of Directors of Massachusetts Citizens for Life; as a founding member of the Board of Directors of Birthright of Greater Beverly, MA; as a member of the Board of Directors of the Value of Life Committee, and as the Massachusetts delegate to the White House Conference on Families.

Dr. Davis has also maintained an active role in professional and institutional organizations, lending his talents to the Evangelical Philosophical Society as president and to the advisory board for the Presbyterians for Democracy and Religious Freedom as a member of that board. As a Gordon-Conwell faculty member, he serves as a faculty representative for the Anglican Studies Committee and the Institutional Review Board. He also currently chairs the Distributive Education Committee that addresses extension and distance education.

AS THE WATERS COVER THE SEA
Millenial Expectations in the Rise of Anglo-American Missions 1640-1810
James A. De Jong

"This volume surefootedly guides us through the complex relation of millennial expectations and Anglo-American missiology from the Puritan age to the beginning of the nineteenth century. He shows how millennial hopes varied throughout this period from an adventist type of premillennialism to a low-keyed postmillennialism. Nevertheless, De Jong concludes that these anticipations often balanced themselves out somewhere between other-wordly and secularized hope and between the temporal and eternal aspects of salvation. This balance enabled believers to engage in mission work confidently yet realistically, setting a viable pattern for us to follow today as we continue to look to Christ in hope, drawing our vision of humanity and missiology from His Word." - Joel Beeke

"This volume accurately traces out millennial views in the 17th and 18th centuries. Information is structured, compact, and easy to read. For instance, John Owen's views are cited in six points, one of which is 'the subjection of the nations throughout the whole world unto the Lord Jesus Christ.' The author reminds us that 'William Carey's Enquiry' became the charter of the missionary movement. In the preface Carey declared that 'God has repeatedly made known his intention to prevail finally over all the power of the Devil.' This volume is a powerful endorsement of the fact that an eschatology of victory was motivational to missionary endeavour on a very wide scale. THIS IS A MOST RELEVANT AND VALUABLE BOOK!." - Erroll Hulse

The New York City Prayer Revival of 1858 and Its Lessons
J.W. Alexander

"The valuable description of the revival of 1858 in this gem of a book is fol1owed by expositions saturated with the Spirit of revival. Here are some notable features: There is fervent prayer in the Spirit which culminates in motivation and effort to reach the lost. Vast harvests require enormous effort and industry. There is a profound sense of sinfulness and the reality of being lost for all eternity together with free grace and a free justification. When revival comes then the gates of iron are penetrated and the very worst of sinners are saved. 'My rule' said John Wesley, 'is to go not only to those who need me but to those who need me most'.

Through these sermons our hope, vision and confidence are enlarged, 'The genius of Christianity is not simply that of conservation, but of aggression. Christianity must not merely live but increase and cover the earth' (p.179). The revival hymns are a bonus including all nine verses of 'O sacred Head, now wounded' (p. 100). - Erroll Hulse, Reformation Today magazine and Leeds Reformed Baptist Church (U.K.)

J.W. Alexander, Theodore Cuyler, George Bethune, Edward Hiscox, William Adams and 20 More

"Donated from heaven were wonderfully spiritual and talented gospel preachers in New York who ministered in the years of revival in that great metropolis around the time of 1858. Reader, will it be your privilege to witness times of spiritual refreshing? Will you live to see times of harvesting? If so this book of expository sermons preached in revival times will be a valuable companion. But if you are called to labour on in drought and begin to think that revival is a delusion then these sermons will sustain your faith and refresh you. There is unction from heaven in these expositions. Especially commended are the sermons on Ezekiel 36:37-38, Malachi 3:16, Ezekiel 18:31, Revelation 3:20, Ecclesiastes 8:8, Matthew 22:13 and Mark 12:24-28. The sermon entitled, 'Past Feeling' is awesome." -Pastor Erroll Hulse, Reformation today magazine and Leeds Reformed Baptist Church (U.K.)

"The [ORIGINAL] publishers of this volume, believing that Christians in other parts of the country will be glad to enjoy some of those exhibitions of truth which God has so peculiarly owned and blessed in the great metropolis, have requested a number of ministers, of different denominations, to furnish one of their ordinary discourses delivered in the midst of the present great Awakening, for the purpose of making a Memorial Volume of this work of God. Most of those clergymen to whom application was made, have kindly and cheerfully complied with our request. They have each given us a sermon prepared with no thought of its going beyond the hearing and the hearts of their own congregation. The sermon is in no respect intended to exhibit the learning or the ability of the preacher, but rather to be a specimen of the truth, and the manner in which it has been presented by various eminent clergymen in the ordinary ministrations of the Sabbath. These pages are the earnest, pungent expression of their heart and mind, at a time when God is doing great things in their churches, whereof they are glad." - from the original Preface

FORTY YEARS FAMILIAR LETTERS:
The Life & Letters of J.W. Alexander
John Hall

"Eldest son of Archibald Alexander (the first professor of Princeton Theological Seminary), James Waddel Alexander became pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Trenton, New Jersey and was the translator of the widely-known hymn, 'O Sacred Head Now Wounded.' These letters between two close friends provide valuable theological and pastoral insights from the mid-nineteenth century. A fascinating book! " Derek Thomas, John E Richards Professor of Theology, RTS Jackson; Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson; and Editorial Director, Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

"During his second year at Princeton University, James W. Alexander, son of Archibald Alexander (Princeton Theological Seminary's first professor), began a correspondence with John Hall, a Philadelphia friend, which continued for forty years (1819-1859). After Alexander's death on July 31, 1859, Charles Hodge urged John Hall to publish the almost 800 letters, saying that it 'would be a unique work. It would be a literary, theological, religious and conversational history of the past forty years.' " David Calhoun, Professor Emeritus of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary

The Life of J.A.Alexander
Henry Carrington Alexander

As professor of Oriental and biblical literature at Princeton, succeeding Dr. Charles Hodge, Joseph Addison Alexander's life and contribution to theology is of enormous interest. For a long time, this biography could only be found on rare book lists. Its republication is gladly welcomed! - Derek Thomas, John E Richards Professor of Theology, RTS Jackson; Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson; and Editorial Director, Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

When J.A. Alexander died on January 28, 1860, Charles Hodge said, 'We have lost the greatest and one of the best men I ever knew.' The brilliant 'and somewhat eccentric' scholar taught almost every subject at Princeton Theological Seminary. He was a gifted preacher who moved congregations with the power and wisdom of his sermons. His Biblical commentaries remain in print as examples of careful and accurate exegesis and exposition. A life-long bachelor, he loved little children and created books and games for them. This biography was first published in 1870. Its author was Alexander's nephew, Henry Carrington Alexander, the son of J.W. Alexander (the subjectÆs older brother). The author was also pastured the same church his father and grandfather served at Charlotte Court House, Virginia. He later became professor of New Testament at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia. - David Calhoun, Professor Emeritus of Church History, Covenant Theological Seminary

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BAPTISTS
Erroll Hulse

"If you are asked, 'Can you point me to a book that will explain in simple, clear, brief and accurate terms some of the leading ideas, personalities, and distinctive issues in Baptist history?' you can answer, 'An Introduction to the Baptists' by Erroll Hulse. The author has lived several decades as an engaged, dedicated, and zealous propagator of Baptist ideas and has read multitudes of sources, primary and secondary, about Baptist personalities, theology, and institutions. He is well qualified to condense this history to the essentials. Audubon Press is to be thanked for making this volume available to a wide reading public!" - Dr. Tom Nettles, Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"One of the first histories of the Baptists that I read was this work by Erroll Hulse. In a small compass, Pastor Hulse covers a significant amount of territory and accurately shows the various streams that make up the English-speaking Baptist world. This small book gave me a solid overview that further in-depth research has confirmed and substantiated. While new questions are being asked and new avenues of interpretation being explored, which is the nature of historical research and is to be welcomed, it is great to see this classic overview back in print. It is a tried and true summary of what is now four hundred years of Baptist life and thought." - Dr. Michael Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality; Director, The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

COME, LET US REASON TOGETHER
A Friendly Critique of the Messianic Movement
Baruch Maoz

"This is a supremely helpful analysis of Messianic Judaism and a host of biblical questions raised by that controversial movement. To what degree is it appropriate for Jewish believers in Jesus to preserve Jewish ceremonies and rabbinical traditions in their worship? Baruch Maoz is uniquely qualified to write on the subject, and he has done so with a charitable tone and point-bypoint thoroughness that will benefit people on all sides of the controversy. I greatly appreciate his relentlessly biblical approach." - John MacArthur, is the pastor-teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and the president of The MasterÆs College and Seminary

"Finally, a clear, contemporary exposition on evangelizing the Jews. This long-needed book, written with mind and soul by one intimately acquainted with the subject, is packed with spiritual and practical instruction. It is a must read for all Christians and denominations involved in, or contemplating, Jewish evangelism." - Dr. Joel Beeke, is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan

"Jewish believers in Jesus have long been plagued with critical questions: How are we to live our lives? Are we to worship in churches with our gentile brothers and sisters or are we to commit ourselves to Messianic Judaism? This book is must reading for anyone who cares about the Jewish people." - Stan Telchin, Stan Telchin Ministries in Lakewood Ranch, Florida

A PROPHET ON THE RUN
A Devotional Commentary on the Book of Jonah
Baruch Maoz

The Bible is the word of God. Its message is relevant to every generation. This book provides readers a vivid sense of the Jonah's message. It is a practical and yet impelling devotional study of an exciting book, full of action and stimulating undercurrents. The language is clear and non-technical exposition of the biblical text, coupled with practical applications. A Prophet on the Run was first preached to an Israeli congregation in Hebrew and subsequently translated by the author for English readers.

"The Book of Jonah is about a remarkable God and his remarkable work. In A Prophet on the Run we are led through the story by the hand of a master guide. Baruch Maoz himself has exercised a remarkable ministry in Israel and far beyond. The fruits of a lifetimeÆs study of Scripture, evangelism, teaching and preaching, and pastoral care, are evident on every page. I commend this little book with joyful enthusiasm and appreciation!" - Dr. Sinclair Ferguson, is the Senior Minister of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC
