THE DUTY AND BLESSING OF A TENDER CONSCIENCE: Plainly Stated and Earnestly Recommended to All who Regard Acceptance with God and the Prosperity of Their Souls
TIMOTHY CRUSO (1656-1697)

It has been said that many of those in mental hospitals could leave quickly if they could feel that they were forgiven. Who knows the damage done by a sense of guilt or unresolved conflict? In this rare Puritan treatise, available only in lithograph form from the 1691 edition, and now available in modern reprint for the first time, Timothy Cruso deals with what it is to have a tender heart, how God brings it about, the evidences of it, and why it finds favor with God. Also appendixed are five additional sermons by this Puritan preacher. Acquaint yourself with Cruso. He is well worth knowing!

TIMOTHY CRUSO (1656-1697) was a Presbyterian minister. He was a close friend of Daniel Defoe, author of 'The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe', who allegedly named his main character after his dear friend. Cruso was described as having a good voice and a graceful manner, in addition to a sound judgment. He died at the age of 41 and his funeral sermon was preached by Matthew Mead, author of 'The Almost Christian Discovered.'

HEART'S EASE IN HEART TROUBLE: 'Let Not Your Heart be Troubled'
JAMES BURDWOOD (1626-1693)

A BRAND NEW FIRST TIME TITLE FROM NORTHAMPTON PRESS.

Some teach today that being a Christian exempts a person from trials and suffering. But our Lord Himself said, “In this world you shall have tribulation.” In this rare work, the author shows that trouble is the norm for a Christian.

Appendix

James Burdwood was born at Yarnacombe in 1626 of religious parents. He had his grammar learning at Kinsbridge School and his later education at Pembroke College, Oxford. He was for a while minister at Plympton St. Mary near Plymouth. From there he moved to Dartmouth at the invitation of the town’s magistrates where he continued till the act of uniformity ejected him.

Having a wife and children he set up a Latin school in Dartmouth but was driven from there by the Five Mile Act. He had thoughts of going to America and sold his estate in order to do so, but was prevented.

He then rented an estate at Batson in the parish of Marlborough, saying often it was better for him and his family to work than to be burdensome to others. There he stayed five years and preached for free in his own house, as long as he was permitted, to great numbers who flocked to hear him from the adjacent areas. And when his house would no longer hold them all they met in his orchard.

He met with some disturbance from the Quakers, of whom there were many in those parts. Some of them occasioned him with much trouble and vexation. They took off his doors, rifled his house, seized and carried away his goods, ripped off the locks on his barn doors and replaced them with their own, and forced his wife and children to seek shelter among their neighbors.

When he could stay no longer at Batson he moved to Hicks Down, about a mile from Bedgebury, where he took another farm. During his seven years residence there his old enemies gave him new trouble. He was fined repeatedly for preaching. Yet he kept preaching anyway.

At length he returned to Dartmouth where, after a brief respite of three years, he met again with hard treatment. After two subsequent years at Bowden, he was seized with a violent fit of bladder stones and frequent urination (strangury). When he was slightly recovered he returned once more to Dartmouth where weakness and pains wholly took him off of public work. He bore his afflictions with admirable patience, acknowledging that they proceeded from a loving Father, that he deserved much worse at His hand, and that he hoped this would be all the hell he would have.

Under very sad circumstances he expressed himself thus: “I have lost estate, relations, and health, and yet God is my God still. I am a broken vessel, fit for no work but suffering. Lord, I submit, I submit.” He often used this remarkable saying: “It is better to be preserved in brine than to rot in honey.” God was pleased at length to release him from his sufferings on August 21, 1693, at the age of 67.

He had good abilities for the pulpit and was a practical, popular preacher. His behavior was exemplary. His counsel was sought by all those around him. He was very humble and eminently faithful, yet prudent in giving reproof.

He had 17 children, though only three outlived him. He was a very tender father to them and was greatly concerned about their souls. He daily put up earnest prayers for them with tears. All of them who lived to years of discretion gave him ground to hope that a good work was wrought in them. He bore the death of those whom God was pleased to take from him with remarkable resignation and preached their funeral sermons himself. He was never imprisoned nor apprehended, though often searched after, and was sometimes strangely preserved. He died in the town in which he was ejected after having endured the most exquisite torments from the strangury. This made him the more able to pen two books:

Heart's Ease in Heart Trouble (1691)

Helps for Faith and Patience in Times of Affliction In Three Parts (1693)

1. Samson’s Riddle Spiritualized

2. Orthodox Paradox, or the Greatest Evil Working the Greatest Eternal Good

3. Heaven and Earth Epitomized, or Invisibilities the Greatest Realities

[This material was taken from Samuel Palmer’s The Nonconformist’s Memorial, Volume 1, printed in London in 1775.]

THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF JUSTIFICATION
Richard Mather (1596-1669) and Cotton Mather (1663-1728)

The doctrine of justification by faith alone is under attack, not only by those outside the Protestant faith, but now by many within her walls. But throughout church history there have been champions of the doctrine who have taken up the fight against her enemies. Two of those are here, Cotton Mather and his grandfather Richard Mather.

Cotton Mather’s work is “The Everlasting Gospel of Justification,” first published in 1700. Richard Mather’s title is “A Treatise on Justification,” first published in 1652. Together these sermons give us the weapons we need to repel the attacks on “the doctrine by which the church stands or falls.” This hardback book is 128 pages.

The Dedication by Cotton Mather

To the Reader by Samuel Willard

Cotton Mather on Justification

Proposition 1 - A Man Cannot be Righteous before God and Accepted and Entitled unto Life with the Righteousness of God Imputed to him.

Proposition 2 - The Righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ is Apprehended by Faith in order to our being made Righteous by it.

Admonition 1 - Many, many and some of them very curious, are the ways wherein the deceived souls of men go to establish their own righteousness.

Admonition 2 - Our own righteousness will prove but our own confusion if we expect thereby to be justified.

Admonition 3 - The Righteousness of God is now set before you; Take That and Live.

Divine Hymns by Cotton Mather

MOSES' CHOICE
JEREMIAH BURROUGHS (1599-1846)

This extremely rare work by this great Puritan preacher is 704 pages based on Hebrews 11:25-26: “Moses chose to suffer affliction with the people of God rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.” It is a masterful treatise on suffering and self-denial. This is the first modern edition of this rare work since its initial printing in 1641. There is another edition on Amazon, but the description of that work says that it is “a reproduction of a historical artifact and may contain missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, and errant marks.” Our edition has been completely re-typeset and slightly modernized. Latin has been translated into English. Long paragraphs have been broken down into smaller ones (but nothing is omitted). Scripture references have been checked for accuracy. The original 1641 edition that was purchased cost over $600. This new edition will retail for $45, or 1/12 the cost of that original copy. It is a hardcover book, printed on acid-free paper for a very long shelf life. It is stitch-sewn rather than glued and comes with a color dust-jacket.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the size of this reprint and the cost to publish, this will be a limited edition. Only 1,000 copies will be printed and after they are gone the book will once again be out of print.

THE COVENANT OF GRACE
JOHN COLQUHOUN with a Foreword by Sinclair Ferguson

"This republication of Colquhoun’s work should be welcomed as a wonderful instrument to recalibrate our theological and spiritual engines. It is well worthy of a place among the books that we “read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest” because it is so Scripture-concentrated, pastorally sensitive, and full of spiritual wisdom. Each of his publications marks him out as a man and minister of unusual gifts. "—From the foreword by Sinclair Ferguson

In the dedication to his book on the covenant of grace, John Colquhoun acknowledged his indebtedness to the following sources:

"It is, however, proper to acknowledge that the Authors, to whom much of the doctrinal part of this Treatise, is indebted for its materials, are, Cloppenburg, Witsius, Turretine, Moor, Erskine, Brown, Hervey, Gib, Muirhead, Gill, and Boston. As to the last judicious Writer, I freely acknowledge, that, so far as he has proceeded, I have followed him so closely, as often to adopt, for the most part his method, and even his illustrations and proofs. Indeed, the substance of the greater part of his Book on the Covenant of Grace, is extracted, and will be found in the following pages; though the sentiments are expressed in a different manner."

THE CHRISTIAN ON THE MOUNT: A Treatise on Meditation
Thomas Watson

This scarce work by the beloved Puritan Thomas Watson has been out of print since the early 19th century. It calls us to love God with our minds by thinking on things of eternal significance.

"The Puritans were thoroughly Reformed, consistent, and persistent in using 'the art of meditation' as an important spiritual discipline and half-way house between the reading of Scripture and prayer. More than forty Puritans wrote books on the subject. Today we have reaped the fruits of not understanding that a non-meditative, mindless Christianity soon produces a spineless Christianity. Thomas Watson's guide for meditation is one of the best and briefest on the subject. If you wish to transform your spiritual disciplines for the better, read, re-read, and then put into practice this precious little book." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke

STUDIES ON SAVING FAITH: A Biblical Response to Easy-Believism
Arthur W. Pink

Far too much of the church in our day is marked by cheap grace, or easy-believism. The message given too often is, "Come to Jesus, you donÆt have to change a thing." But our Lord did not say that salvation was an easy thing; rather, He said that it was an impossible thing, as far as men are concerned (Matthew 19:26).

Arthur Pink saw the danger of this kind of teaching, and wrote against it in his magazine "Studies in the Scriptures" from 1931-1933. These articles were published in book form, and are presented here. As the author wrote: "At no point does Satan use his cunning and power more tenaciously, and more successfully, than in getting people to believe that they have a saving faith when they have not."

Of this book John MacArthur wrote: "Arthur W. Pink's Studies on Saving Faith is one of the most potent, far-reaching, insightful works he ever penned, and that is saying quite a lot."

Pastor David Downs of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Orlando said of this book: "A hideous virus called 'easy-believism' is damning millions of false professing Christians in the church today. Pink's book, 'Studies on Saving Faith' is an essential 'smelling salt' to shock churches out of their deadly slumber."

SIGHS FROM HELLThe Groans of a Damned SoulBeing an Exposition of Luke 16
John Bunyan, edited by Dr. Don Kistler

SIGHS FROM HELL: The Groans of a Damned Soul by John Bunyan

This book is especially timely in light of Rob Bell's recent book release called "Love Wins," in which he denies a literal hell, other than the one we make for ourselves. But over 300 years ago John Bunyan wrote this little work in which he exposits the story in Luke 16 of Dives and Lazarus, and shows biblically that hell is quite literal---at least Jesus thought so!

This book has been slightly updated as to language and grammar. It is hardbound and printed on acid-free paper. While this work of Bunyan's is not as well known as "Pilgrim's Progress," it is very important, particularly for evangelism. This is what sinners need to be saved from!

An exposition of those words in Luke 16 concerning the rich man and the beggar wherein is discovered the lamentable state of the damned: their cries, their desires in their distresses, with the determination of God upon them; a good warning word to sinners, both old and young, to take into consideration quickly, and to see by faith in Jesus Christ to avoid, lest they come into the same place of torment.

PRECIOUS FAITH & THE SAINTS' WALK BY FAITH
Jeremiah Burroughs, edited by Don Kistler

'Precious Faith' and 'The Saints' Walk by Faith' are the scarcest books by this great Puritan preacher to find on the antiquarian market, and now they are available for the first time since the 17th century. Retypeset and edited, they are combined here into one volume.

"Faith resigns itself unto and rolls itself upon Christ, and rests upon Him for all the good that God offers in Christ, so as it is willing to venture itself; to venture all the good it has and all it hopes for. It is willing to venture it all upon grace that it sees in Jesus Christ, and it satisfies itself in Christ alone. This is the nature of faith in general." - Jeremiah Burroughs

It is, perhaps, the greatest tribute to Jeremiah Burroughs that his contemporaries held him in such high esteem. Men of renown like Thomas Goodwin, William Greenhill and William Bridge published six volumes of his writings after his death because of their regard for his piety.

JEREMIAH BURROUGHS (1599-1646) was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, "the nursery of the Puritans." He served as rector at St. Margaret's, Tivetshall, from 1631-1646, the year of his death. He served as a member of the Westminster Assembly, and was greatly beloved for his gentle spirit. His writings are numerous.

THE NATURAL MAN'S CONDITION: A True Map of Man's Miserable Estate by NatureIn Seventeen Sermons on Ephesians 2:12
Christopher Love, with an Introduction by Edward Calamy

The height of hopelessness is to be without Christ. And the despair felt by such a person in this world pales in comparison to what they will feel in the next one. In this scarce Puritan volume, never reprinted since the 17th century, Christopher Love describes the misery of being without Christ and the benefits of being in Christ.

He distinguishes true hopes from false hopes, and gives evidences for knowing that one truly is in the covenant of grace. This is painstaking heart surgery from a wise soul-physician, who wounds only to apply the healing balm of the gospel.

NONE BUT CHRIST: A Plain and Familiar Treatise on the Knowledge of Christ in 33 Sermons from 1 Cor. 2:2
John Wall

The Apostle Paul has been referred to as 'the know-nothing apostle,' based on his statement that he determined to know nothing except Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2). The doctrine expounded in this precious book is 'Everyone Ought to Study and Learn to Know Jesus Christ.' The author, in 33 chapters, shows why we must know Christ, how we come to know Christ, the signs of those who know Christ, and exhorts ministers of the gospel to preach Christ. John Wall was Pastor of St. Michael's Cornhill, London from 1646-1652

John MacArthur said, "Don Kistler seems to have a special gift for rediscovering long-forgotten Puritan works that are perfectly suited to our times. This is a compelling exhortation to give Christ His rightful place at the center of our thoughts and our words. It is a truly edifying - and deeply convicting - word of admonition. Christians today, seeking to honor Christ while trying to keep up with the pace of twenty-first century life, surely need this message even more than our Puritan ancestors did."

THE GOLDEN SCEPTER HELD FORTH FOR THE HUMBLE: Exposition of 2nd Chronicles 7:14
JOHN PRESTON

2nd Chronicles 7:14 - "and if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

This text is one of the most quoted these days. But what does it mean for God’s people to humble themselves? And it is not just that we must pray, but that we must turn from evil and seek God’s face. And it is then that He will hear and heal our land. John Preston was one of the most celebrated and respected of the early English Puritans. He is most known for his Breastplate of Faith and Love, published by the Banner of Truth. But this important work needs to be as widely read and admired. Mostly it needs to be heeded and taken to heart.

SERMONS ON IMPORTANT DOCTRINES
John Colquhoun

Christians today are woefully ignorant of the most essential doctrines, particularly those dealing with the Person and work of Christ, justfication, sanctification, and what it means to be saved from sin. In this book, out of print since 1886, the great Scottish preacher John Colquhoun deals specifically with those grand themes.

Here are sermons on Christ as a servant, Christ as our substitute, Christ as our righteousness, and how we are brought into union with Him. These matters are never out of date or out of style. And we can never have enough instruction on such important topics.

HEAVEN TAKEN BY STORM
Thomas Watson

Many today believe that the Christian life is rather easy to both obtain and live. But the Puritans saw it as warfare, as wrestling, as 'holy violence,' to use their term. The Apostle Paul spoke of beating his own body into subjection.

And this holy violence is to be brought not only against one's own self, but against Satan, the world and heaven ttoo. And in this confrontation we must use the weapons God has given us - reading the Word, hearing the Word, prayer, meditation, self-examination, and the due observance of the Lord's Day.

Allow Thomas Watson to be your guide through the minefield that lies between us and heaven.

THE CHRISTIAN FATHER'S PRESENT TO HIS CHILDREN
John Angell James

The Northampton Press is pleased to announce the reprint of the title: "The Christian Father's Present to His Children." The author is John Angell James, who lived in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was a prodigious author and preacher, whose book "Female Piety" is well known.

This book was James's gift to his children, but it is a clarion call to godly parenting for any man who wishes to leave a legacy of Christian fatherhood to his descendants. It certainly helps define what it is to raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. There is much more to godly parenting than taking our children to Sunday School.

This classic volume has been edited from its 19th century edition into a more modern, "user-friendly" format. The language has been slightly updated, in addition to grammar and formatting changes. It contains all the riches of the original but in a way that makes it accessible to every modern father who cares for the souls of his beloved children.

SAVING FAITH
John Colquhoun, edited by Dr. Don Kistler

Scripture says that there are two kinds of faith, saving and non-saving. So how can a person know if he has the faith that saves? This is what the great Scottish preacher John Colquhoun addresses in this scarce title that has been out of print since 1824.



Colquhoun is the author of "A Treatise on the Law and the Gospel," "Spiritual Comfort," and "Sermons on Important Doctrines." He is one of the finest of all Scottish Presbyterian preachers. His works are highly regarded by all who love the doctrines of grace.

LIGHT AND HEAT: The Puritan View of the Pulpit
Dr. R. Bruce Bickel

We have lost the exalted view of the pulpit that was characteristic of the Puritan era. They held both the pulpit and the Word of God in high esteem. Preaching the Word was the highest calling imaginable.

In this important work, Dr. R. Bruce Bickel shows what was admirable about their view of the pulpit and the preached Word. We would do well to listen to his admonitions and to see how far removed we are today.

May God once again raise up a large number of "godly preachers."

THE DISTINGUISHING TRAITS OF CHRISTIAN CHARACTER
Gardiner Spring, edited and updated by Don Kistler

There are certain marks that only a true believer in Jesus Christ possesses, and there are marks that do not prove a man to be in Christ at all. Yet all of these signs are religious in nature. In this important work, first published in 1813, the author shows which signs distinguish a true Christian and which do not. These include both internal and external marks.Jonathan Edwards's classic work 'The Religious Affections' was the inspiration for this book. Gardiner Spring's work is a solid introduction to the kind of self-examination through which we must all put ourselves.

JONATHAN EDWARDS: Evangelist
John Gerstner

In my opinion, this is the finest treatment of the Puritan doctrine of "seeking salvation" or "preparation for salvation." Edwards did not originate this teaching, but he was a strong and capable advocate of it. Most of the English Puritans taught it, as did Edwards' grandfather, the great Solomon Stoddard, whose book "A Guide To Christ" was called by Dr. Gerstner "a classic."

This teaching was once the heart of Reformed evangelism, but it is largely unknown today, even in Reformed circles. You can find it in Thomas Watson's "Heaven Taken by Storm." Edwards' most well-known sermon on this topic is "Pressing Into the Kingdom."

This book was first published by Westminster Press in 1960, and then again by Soli Deo Gloria in 1995. It has been out of print for some time and we are glad to bring it back. Copies on Amazon and Ebay sell for between $44 and $119.00, even if used.

A Dialogue Between a Catholic Priest and a Protestant
Matthew Poole

Matthew Poole is a highly-regarded Puritan scholar and preacher. This work of his has been out of print for nearly 200 years. It is a dialogue between a Roman Catholic priest and a Protestant, old friends who meet after many years and decide to discuss the differences between their various religions. Poole uses official Roman documents for the arguments of that faith, and the Protestant appeals to Scripture and logic in answering back.

This is a rare chance to sit in, as it were, on a Puritan debate. It is easy to find a polemical work from either side of these issues, but it is very difficult to find a work where there is a back-and-forth dialogue fleshing out the differences and making clear the heart of the matter. Both sides can be wrong, but they cannot both be right.

Some of the topics covered include transubstantiation, the authority of the church, praying to saints, justification by faith alone, the role of Mary, and many other key issues.

THE PRECIOUS THINGS OF GOD: Devotional Studies on the 12 Things Scripture Call 'Precious'
Octavius Winslow

We are pleased to announce our newest offering from the Northampton Press, "The Precious Things of God" by Octavius Winslow (1808-1878). Of this book John MacArthur said, "Octavius Winslow's The Precious Things of God is a profound study of twelve things Scripture calls 'precious.' They happen to be twelve foundational aspects of Christian faith and experience. So this book is essentially a handbook for faithful Christian living. Written in a simple, compelling, devotional style, it's a wonderful tool that will encourage young Christians and mature saints alike. Very highly recommended."

These pages address themselves pointedly and strongly to that essential principle of vital religion; the experimental. We really know as much of the gospel of Christ, and of the Christ of the gospel, as by the power of the Holy Ghost we have the experience of it in our souls.To apprehend, in some measure, the value, the glory, and the preciousness of the Lord Jesus, and, as a consequence, to esteem Him above all good, to reflect His image, to labor in His service; this is spiritual life.

The author elucidates such 'precious' things as Christ, faith, trials, God's thoughts, divine promises, the blood of Christ, the anointing of the Holy Spirit, God's children, God's Word, prayer, Christ's sympathy with our infirmities, and the death of the saints.

This is a wonderful devotional manual on experiential Christianity. This book is the first modern edition of this title. It has been retypeset and slightly modernized. The last edition published prior to this was a lithograph of a 19th century copy. This is a completely new edition.

"For several years, I have kept an old used copy of "The Precious Things of God" near my desk, often using it as a devotional to stir up my heart to treasure those sacred truths of Scripture which are to mold our thoughts, words, and actions if we aim to live Christ-like. As is true of all of Dr. Winslow's writings, this volume is a precious gem about precious truths, replete with memorable statements and written for spiritual edification." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke

"Winslow's 'The Precious Things of God' is a profound study of twelve things Scripture calls 'precious.' They happen to be twelve foundational aspects of Christian faith and experience. So this book is essentially a handbook for faithful Christian living. Written in a simple, compelling, devotional style, it's a wonderful tool that will encourage young Christians and mature saints alike. Very highly recommended." - John MacArthur

There's a new title from the Northampton Press. And this one is unique for us in that all of the authors are still alive! The book is entitled, "Let Us Pray," and is a symposium on the subject of prayer by leading pastors and theologians. The contributing authors are R. C. Sproul, John MacArthur, John Piper, Joel Beeke, Steven Lawson, Richard D. Phillips,

Hywel Jones, Michael Haykin, W. Robert Godfrey, Phil Johnson, and Bruce Bickel.

When our Lord's disciples came to Him regarding prayer, they did not ask Him to teach them how to pray, but rather they asked Him to teach them to pray. Obviously even those closest to Christ needed to learn to pray. And so do we.

Here, some of our best Bible teachers and expositors give us instruction on prayer, from why we should pray, to what prayer is, how it ties in with God's sovereignty, what it means to pray in Jesus' name, what it means to hallow God's name, and why God is to be the focus of our prayers, not ourselves. These, and many other topics, are addressed in this helpful book.

LAW & LIBERTY: A Biblical Look at Legalism
Joel Beeke, Steven Lawson, John MacArthur, Richard Phillips and More

What is the relationship between God's love and His law? Is a Christian bound by endless 'dos' and 'don'ts'? And does God love us more when we do some things or don't do other things?

In these discussions, the term 'legalism' is often bandied about. But what is it? And how dangerous is it? In this book, the authors define legalism, show the inherent dangers of it, and also show how it is an insult to the finished work of Christ.

Dr. Don Kistler - Introduction: What Legalism Is, What Legalism Does

Dr. Steven J. Lawson - Truth vs Tradition

Richard D. Phillips - Love and God's Law
