MORE LOVE TO THEE
The Life & Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss
George Lewis Prentiss

"Reading Christian biographies has had an immeasurable influence in my own life and spiritual growth. To be able to see the hand of God, guiding, correcting, and sustaining one who trusts Him has encouraged me to believe that true discipleship is possible not only for the great figures of the Bible but for us ordinary folks as well. MORE LOVE TO THEE reveals the character of a woman who loved God and earnestly sought to help others to love Him." - Elisabeth Elliot

"I am delighted about the publication of the rare volume of THE LIFE & LETTERS OF ELIZABETH PRENTISS. We greatly need more biographies of godly women, and this work is certainly in that category." - Iain Murray

THE PASTOR'S DAUGHTER
The Way of Salvation Explained to his Daughter by Rev. Edward Payson
Louisa Payson Hopkins

A unique glimpse into the home and heart of the remarkable Payson family of Portland, Maine, as Edward Payson lovingly leads his oldest daughter, Louisa, to genuine faith in Christ. It traces the struggles of a brilliant girl from the age of 4 to 14 as she seeks to come to Christ on her own terms, and not the Lord's.

Those who have loved "A Pastor's Sketches" by Ichabod Spencer will find themselves in familiar territory as Payson faithfully presses his daughter to repent and believe the Gospel. The chapters are brief and filled with illuminating illustrations that parents and pastors alike will find useful in presenting the claims of Christ and the demands of the Gospel upon sinners. There is nothing like this available anywhere!

It cannot be recommended too highly!

SERMONS FOR CHRISTIAN FAMILIES
On the Most Important Relative Duties
Edward Payson

"The cultivation of domestic piety and morality is the surest means of elevating the character of our species, and of advancing their welfare both for this world and that which is to come. The good father cannot be a bad citizen; and the child, trained to habits of subordination and duty in the family, will be likely to carry these habits with him into the extended relations of mature life. The rule and measure of human duty is the law of God. A character formed on any other basis, or shaped by any other model, than the Word of God, must be essentially defective. Deep piety constitutes the only sure foundation of a pure morality; and any system of education which overlooks this, and provides only for a reputable passage through the present world.

This is designed for a Family Book. It delineates character, enforces obligations, and inculcates duties, by the observance of which, with the blessing of God, families become nurseries of the church of Christ. Christian fathers, the members of maternal associations, all pious mothers indeed, will find it a welcome companion, a faithful monitor and friend. That such a work is greatly needed, there is but too much evidence in the prevailing laxity of family government and discipline. That it may be instrumental of reviving Family Religion, - 'of turning the heart of the fathers unto the children, and the heart of the children unto their fathers, and thus of averting the curse of God from our land,' - is the prayer of the Editor." - June 1832

THE BLAMELESS PAIR - Luke 1:6

CHILDREN TO BE EDUCATED FOR GOD - Exodus 2:9

HOW LITTLE CHILDREN ARE PREVENTED FROM COMING TO CHRIST - Mark 10:14

DUTY OF THE PRESENT TO THE COMING GENERATION - Psalm 144:4

ANGUISH OF PARENTS AT THE PERVERSENESS OF CHILDREN - 2 Samuel 18:33

THE GUILT AND CONSEQUENCES OF PARENTAL UNFAITHFULNESS - 1 Samuel 3:13,14

THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS VISITED UPON THEIR CHILDREN - Exodus 34:7

AN EARLY INTEREST IN GOD'S MERCY ESSENTIAL TO A HAPPY LIFE - Psalm 90:14

SIN AVOIDED BY CONSIDERATIONS OF GOD - Genesis 39:9

SOLOMON'S CHOICE - 1 Kings 3:10

CHARACTER AFFECTED BY INTERCOURSE - Proverbs 13:20

CHARACTER OF DANIEL - Daniel 10:11

OUR OBLIGATIONS TO GOD AND MEN - Mark 12:17

PARTICIPATION IN OTHER MEN'S SINS - 1 Timothy 5:22

PRAYER FOR RULERS - 1 Timothy 2:1,2

LOVE TO CHRIST INDISPENSABLE - John 21:15

THE CHARACTERS WHOM CHRIST LOVES - Proverbs 8:17

"Sermons for Christian Families is Edward Payson at his best--full of wisdom and practicality, majoring in the majors, and warmly devotional in spirit. With this reprint, Payson will again be recognized as being on par with William Jay and J.C. Ryle as among the best of former preachers who unabashedly proclaimed the whole counsel of God to families in an eminently charitable, challenging, and convicting manner. As parents, read these sermons for your own edification, then read them aloud with passion to your teenagers and older children." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

"Edward Payson entered deeply into the love of Christ, and reflected it to an eminent degree. Reading this book will surely bring blessings to the churches of our day." - Iain Murray

"Among the preachers of previous eras, Edward Payson stands tall. His profound meditation on God's Word gave his preaching and writing an unction that can lead men and women to be taken up more and more with the glorious being that is the triune God. Highly recommended." - Michael A.G. Haykin

""These powerful messages are at least as pertinent today as in the day they were given. Solid Ground Books does us a service in making them more widely available again. Here is substantive exposition of Scripture searchingly applied to the soul. Payson is unsparing in pointing out sin but is also faithful to point to Christ. In spite of the age of the material, the book is quite readable. This book will be beneficial to any family." - Dr. Ray Van Neste
