THE WORKS OF JONATHAN EDWARDS
2 Volume Hardcover Set
Jonathan Edwards

Widely recognized as a great theologian, an influential preacher and a prolific writer, Jonathan Edwards played a prominent role in helping to spark the spirit of revivalism known as the Great Awakening in the eighteenth-century America. Edwards' sermons, while intellectually engaging, were also accessible to the common people and often generated highly emotional responses. His foremost desire was to help people transform from mere believers in Christian doctrine to converted Christians who were moved to action by the principles of their belief. This two-volume collection of Edwards' works features important sermons of the Great Awakening as well as Edwards' memoirs and other essays. First published in 1834, here is what makes this new edition of The Works of Jonathan Edwards the best available:

More readable. This edition has larger, more readable type than previous editions.

More complete. This edition contains all matter included in the first collected American edition, various original extracts from the diary and papers of Edwarads, several smaller pieces printed originally in a separate form, and a memoir by descendant Sereno E. Dwight.

"Jonathan Edwards . . . was among the noblest and ablest Christians of his age, and can now be seen, two centuries after, as one of the greatest theologians ever given by God to his church. As a saint and scholar, evangelist and educationalist, pastor and teacher, missionary and metaphysician, he showed a grasp of the grandeur of God's sovereignty and the glory of divine grace equaled only by men of the caliber of John Owen and John Calvin." - J. I. Packer

POOLE'S COMMENTARY ON THE ENTIRE HOLY SCRIPTURES
Matthew Poole

MATTHEW POOLE (1624-1679) was born at York, England, and was educated at Emmanual College, Cambridge. He lived during tumultuous times in England. From 1661 to 1665, Parliament passed four acts known together as the Clarendon Code. The second of these was the Act of Uniformity (1662). It made the use of the Book of Common Prayer compulsory in the religious services of the official Church of England. This book prescribed the form of public prayers and the administration of the sacraments. Around 2000 clergy refused to comply and were called "nonconformists." They were forced to resign their pastorates and were not allowed to hold civil or military offices or to be awarded degrees by the universities of Cambridge and Oxford.

From 1649 until the passing of the Act of Uniformity in 1662, Poole was the rector of St. Michael le Querne, London. He eventually left England and lived the remainder of his life in Amsterdam. A biography of Poole has recently been published: Matthew Poole: His Life, His Times, His Contributions Along with His Argument against The Infallibility of the Roman Catholic Church by Thomas Harley (2009).



Poole's work, A Commentary on the Holy Bible, was originally called Annotations upon the Holy Bible. In the opinion of some, this commentary is the only true rival to Matthew Henry, born while Poole was still living. Charles Spurgeon had this to say: "If I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator- not so pithy and witty by far as Matthew Henry, but he is perhaps more accurate, less a commentator, and more an expositor."

SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY
The Life and Testament of Jim Elliot
Elisabeth Elliot

Shadow of the Almighty is a modern classic story of faithfulness, obedience, and martyrdom. It is the best-selling account of the martyrdom of Jim Elliot and four other missionaries at the hands of the Huaorani Indians in Ecuador.

Shadow of the Almighty has inspired Christians since its first publication in 1958. Elisabeth Elliot makes full use of Jim's revealing diaries to fill in the details of a life completely committed to God's service.

This story was reintroduced to today's audiences in 2006 thanks to the release of the film, End of the Spear, which tells for the first time the killings from the perspective of the Huaorani.

Elisabeth Elliot Gren (born 1926) is a Christian author and evangelist. Her first husband, Jim Elliot, was killed in 1956 while attempting to make missionary contact with the Huaroni of eastern Ecuador. She later spent two years as a missionary to the tribe members who killed her husband. Returning to the United States after many years in South America, she became widely known as the author of over twenty books and as a speaker in constant demand.

SERMONS ON PRAYER
Charles H. Spurgeon

Here is a collection of sermons on the subject of prayer by one of the most beloved preachers in the history of the English-speaking world. Spurgeon was popular in the most fundamental sense of the word in that he was 'of the people.' He began selling his sermons early in his career, and they have been published in many formats over the last century and a half.

This edition presents the sermons in a re-typeset and redesigned modern, easy-to-read format. Selected from over 3,500 sermons, this volume features Spurgeon's preaching on praying: the personal life of prayer, as well as prayers of the Bible and the prayers of Christ.

The focus is on praying, not prayer, in the sense that praying is an action and not an abstraction. Spurgeon preaches about how praying is a key component of a righteous life, about the work of prayer in the life of a Christian, about examples of prayer found in the Scriptures, and about the pray-ers: the saints whose examples can teach us about prayer.

HERE I STAND
A Life of Martin Luther
Roland Bainton

"I cannot.. I will not... recant! Here I stand." This authoritative and inspiring story paints a vivid portrait of the crusader who spearheaded the Reformation. Considered one of the most readable biographies of Martin Luther, this volume is an illustrated look at the German religious reformer and his influence on Western civilization.

Martin Luther entered a monastery as a youth and as a man shattered the structure of the medieval church. Luther spoke out against the corrupt religious practices that then existed. His demand that the authority for doctrine and practice be Scriptures, rather than Popes or Councils, echoed around the world and ignited the Great Reformation. Accused of heresy and threatened with excommunication and death, Luther maintained his bold stand and refused to recant. In his crusade to eliminate religious abuses, he did more than any other man to establish the Protestant faith. With sound historical scholarship and penetrating insight, Roland Bainton examines Luther's widespread influence. He re-creates the spiritual setting of the sixteenth century, showing Luther's place within it and influence upon it. Richly illustrated with more than 100 woodcuts and engravings from Luther's own time, Here I Stand dramatically brings to life Martin Luther, the great reformer.

Bainton published Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther in 1950. As of 2008, it is still in print. Kenneth Scott Latourette, in the chapter notes for "Luther and the Rise and Spread of Lutheranism" in his History of Christianity, lauds Bainton's biography of Luther as "A superb combination of accurate scholarship based upon a thorough knowledge of the sources and secondary works with insight, vivid, readable literary style, and reproductions of contemporary illustrations. It also contains so valuable a bibliography as to render needless an extended one in this chapter." In his chapter on Luther's writings in Invitation to the Classics, Mark A. Noll singles out BaintonĘs biography:

"Of the many superlative treatments, a half-century old study by Roland Bainton, Here I Stand: A Life of Martin Luther, has justly won a reputation as a classic work on a classic subject."
