Soli Deo Gloria

THOUGHTS ON FAMILY WORSHIP
J.W. Alexander

The Puritans considered the family as "a little church," and the father as its pastor. It was his duty to oversee and shepherd his flock. In our day, the idea of a family gathering together for worship is virtually unkown, save for a few isolated pockets where this wonderful tradition is being carried on in spite of the demands of a world that seeks our time, our attention, and our focus. As families get busier with sports, school activites, church activities, and recreation, this book calls us back to a long-forgotten priority: that of worshipping God in the home as well as the church.

A classic book on the importance of an often-neglected duty, Thoughts on Family Worship by James W. Alexander focuses on the many benefits of daily worship as it strengthens minds and cultivates personal piety among both parents and children. The author further shows how family worship influences our churches and society, perpetuating sound doctrine and leaving a legacy for posterity.

Alexander provides practical directions for conducting family worship, discussing in detail such things as the place of Scripture reading, prayer, and praise. He is aware, however, of the difficulties of maintaining family worship and answers several common objections to it.

If you struggle to hold times of worship with your family, or even if you simply desire some encouragement in the practice, this book is sure to provide the words of counsel you need.

THE GOSPEL SERIES
Gospel Worship, Conversation, Reconciliation, Remission, & Revelation
Jeremiah Burroughs

Publisher's Description: The Gospel Series Contents

Vol. 1: Gospel Worship (1648/1990).

In 14 sermons on Leviticus 10:3 ('Among those who are near me I will be sanctified') Burroughs shows that we honor God when we draw near to Him in worship, in preparing for worship, in hearing the Word preached, in receiving the sacraments, and in prayer.

Vol. 2: Gospel Conversation (1648/1995).

Not conversation as in speech only, but the Puritan concept of conversation - of work, family, fellowship and all-around general conduct. Here are ten sermons to help us live the Cross-centered life. Most of the sermons are based upon Philippians 1:27 ('Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ') and focus believers to be diligent in their walk. The Gospel must be the center of the Christian life, he argues.

Vol. 3: Gospel Revelation (1660/2006).

In about 18 sermons, Burroughs explains the excellency of the eternal. God is excellent, Christ is excellent, and the nature of an eternal soul is excellent as well. It was here in the excellency of Jesus Christ (pages 51-182) that I came to a deep respect of BurroughsĂ love for Christ. Truly, His name is called 'Wonderful' (Isaiah 9:6).

Vol. 4: Gospel Remission (1668 and 1674/1995).

In 20 sermons Burroughs shows that the true blessedness of the human heart stems from the knowledge that God has perfectly pardoned my sin! The entire volume is built from Psalm 32:1 ('Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven / whose sin is covered'). 'There is nothing in all the world that so much concerns us as to know how things stand with us in relation to God and our souls, whether we are pardoned or not. A mistake in this is a wonderful mistake, and yet how many thousands are there who venture the weight of this great business upon poor, weak, and slight grounds, yea, rather, on mere suggestions of their own heart' (p. 175).

Vol. 5: Gospel Reconciliation (1657/1997).

Here are 18 sermons on 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 covering the who, what, when, where and why of reconciliation of sinners to God. This volume is filled with excellent encouragement for pastors to remain earnest in their preaching of the Cross.

Each of these volumes shows Burroughs to be a man deeply concerned that Christians live diligent Cross-centered lives. But, as with the great experiential preachers, there is a parallel theme of evangelism as well.

THE JONATHAN EDWARDS SERMON SERIES
Jonathan Edwards

A JUST AND RIGHTEOUS GOD

The Puritans were Christians guided by Scripture, not the dictates of man. When faced with a choice between submitting to man and obeying God, they chose to follow the will of Christ. Today, we regard these men as heroes for remaining true to their consciences held captive by the Word of God.

Jonathan Edwards was a prolific writer and respected preacher and theologian. His works have impacted both Christian and secular communities in the centuries since his death. A Just and Righteous God highlights Edwards' thoughts on how God shows mercy to his chosen and wrath to the wicked. This collection of sermons contains thirteen previously unpublished works by Edwards on God's just and righteous nature toward man.

ALTOGETHER LOVELY: On the Glory and Excellency of Christ

Known by the masses as a 'hellfire and brimstone preacher,' Edwards actually wrote about the beauty and excellency of Jesus Christ more than any other subject. Altogether Lovely presents nine sermons from Edwards, which reveal his deep affection for the glory and excellency of Jesus Christ.

CHARITY AND ITS FRUITS: Christian Love as Manifested in the Heart and Life

In this collection of sermons on 1 Corinthians 13, Jonathan Edwards shows that Christians are called to exemplify the great virtue of charity through their thoughts and actions. Edwards shows the nature and virtue of love as the distinguishing mark of a true Christian; love, which manifests itself in preferring others before self.

TO THE RISING GENERATION: Addresses Given to Children and Young Adults

This compilation of sermons contains thirteen sermons Edwards addressed to children and young adults. Also included is a list of Bible questions for children that Edwards expected his young people to know. For the most part, these messages focus on the importance of obedience, discipline, and seeking God.

UNLESS YOU REPENT

This volume contains fifteen previously unpublished sermons on the judgment awaiting the impenitent. Edwards spoke of divine judgment because of his desire to see many come to Christ and be spared from GodĂs wrath. We know of no more solemn volume ever published than this.

THE JUSTIFICATION OF THE SINNER
A Treatise on Justification by Faith Alone
William Pemble

Product Description

Puritan William Pemble looks at the issues surrounding justification and shows how faith alone in the finished work of Christ is what justifies. He challenges the teaching of the Council of Trent and asserts that the Protestant understanding of justification is irreconcilable with Roman Catholic and Arminian positions. All the essential biblical truths about justification are here.

Author William Pemble (1591-1623) was born to poor parents in 1591 in Egerton, Kent. In 1610 he was admitted to Magdalen College, Oxford, where he graduated in 1614, having been tutored by the Puritan Richard Capel. He later served as a tutor himself, and then distinguished himself as a preacher. He worked at his studies and preaching so hard that it damaged his health, and he died of a fever in 1623 while visiting his mentor.

MOSES' SELF-DENIAL
Jeremiah Burroughs

Reflecting on Hebrews 11:24-25, Jeremiah Burroughs ponders how Moses relinquished his noble and comfortable rights as the son of PharaohĂs daughter to find greater honor as a suffering son of Abraham. Burroughs explains how Christians are called to deny all honors, privileges, and delights for the sake of Christ. He also shows how God is especially honored when we forgo selfish desires at a time when they seem most advantageous to us.

You will benefit greatly to see how faith acts to transform losses caused by self-denial into true honor. This is an insightful, practical book; a helpful antidote for our natural selfishness.

ENDORSEMENT

"Every new believer, upon first reading the Gospels, is gripped by Jesus' stark calls for self-denial. Yet self-denial, biblically framed, is not mere asceticism; it is an exchange of our sin-riddled wills for a higher, better, and purer will. Jeremiah Burroughs has served us well through this book by providing a needed corrective for a church tempted to value pleasures, honors, and wealth more than Christ. He asks, 'What is my honor...my life, so long as God may be glorified?' He adds, 'If God's honor is not precious in my eyes, what makes me think my honor will be precious in His?' Burroughs points us to the source of true delight, God Himself. I am pleased to heartily recommend this book, praying that it will challenge your soul as it has mine." - Phillip Simpson, author of A Life of Gospel Peace: A Biography of Jeremiah Burroughs

Owen considered this work his magnum opus.

THIS MATERIAL IS NOT FOUND IN THE 16 VOLUME SET BY BANNER OF TRUTH.

Table of Contents:

Book 1: Natural Theology

Book 2: Theology from Adam to Noah

Book 3: Theology from Noah to Abraham

Book 4: Theology from Abraham to Moses

Book 5: Theology from Moses to Christ

Book 6: Evangelical Theology

Author John Owen (1616-1683) is amongst the best known of the Puritans. His writings continue to be widely read and greatly appreciated to this day.

Endorsement "Published in Latin in 1661 as a contribution to international reformed scholarship, this treatise draws on a very wide range of learning. The final part, in particular, where Owen characterizes evangelical theology as a gift of the Holy Spirit generating faith in Christ, holiness through Christ, and worship of Christ, is pure gold. Those with a taste for Owen, or for theology, or (best of all) for both, will read this Puritan proto-Biblical Theology with joy." - J. I. Packer

DISPUTATIONS ON HOLY SCRIPTURE
William Whitaker

One of the principal confessions of the Protestant Reformation was sola Scriptura, Scripture alone is the final, infallible authority for the church. For centuries, however, Roman Catholicism has denied this principle, positing church tradition as an equal, if not higher authority.

In this book, Puritan William Whitaker forcefully and effectively deals with objections to the doctrine of sola Scriptura. He addresses issues such as the number of books in the canon, authentic versions of the Bible, as well as Scripture's authority, clarity, interpretation, and perfection. Many have said that Whitaker so greatly defended the Protestant position that 'he cut off the head of his antagonist with his own weapons.'

One reader wrote:

Whitaker wrote an engaging and edifying book. The purpose of Whitaker's book is to defend the doctrine of 'sola scriptura' against the Papists, especially Bellarmine and Stapleton. The defense is broken down into six questions, all which are still relevant today:

1. The number of the canonical books.

2. The authentic edition and versions.

3. The authority of Scripture.

4. The perspicuity of scripture.

5. The interpretation of Scripture.

6. The perfection of Scripture over against human traditions.

THE COLLECTED SERMONS OF JAMES DURHAM
Volume One: His General Sermons
Volume Two: CHRIST CRUCIFIED:
The Marrow of the Gospel in 72 Sermons on Isaiah 53
James Durham

VOLUME ONE: This volume contains sermon series titled 'The Blessedness of the Death of Those That Die in the Lord,' 'The Unsearchable Riches of Christ' (Communion sermons), 'Heaven upon Earth' (on conscience), 'The Great Gain of Contenting Godliness,' and 'The Great Corruption of Subtle Self,' as well as miscellaneous sermons that appeared in various publications. The last includes a recent transcription from manuscript of one of Durham's most important sermons preached at the beginning of the Protester-Resolutioner schism in Scotland. All have been uniformly edited and cross-referenced as needed. Also included is an introduction covering the life and works of Durham.

VOLUME TWO: CHRIST CRUCIFIED - First published in 1683, then in 1686, this collection of sermons was reprinted six times in the eighteenth century. The present reprint is carefully and beautifully done; it uses the 1702 edition as the base text but also takes the other editions into account.

This book belongs in the class of Friedrich Krummacher's 'The Suffering Savior.' Like Krummacher, Durham was gifted at describing the sufferings of Christ through illustration, though his language is now antiquated. For example, in describing Christ's agony in Gethsemane, he writes, "There was such a striving, wrestling and conflicting, not with man without him, but with inward pressures on his spirit, that he is like one in a barrace, or cock-pit, or engaged in a duel with a mighty combatant, sore put to it, very far beyond aught that we can conceive of, so that he sweat great drops of blood."

The sixty-ninth sermon on making use of Christ's intercession is a masterpiece. This is an excellent book for believers who yearn for a more intimate fellowship with Christ in His sufferings. John Duncan said to a friend who wanted to draw closer to Christ, "Read Durham on the fifty-third of Isaiah at my request. He has much repetition and you may be disgusted with that. But it's repetition of a very fine thing, the eating of Christ's flesh and the drinking of His blood. Well, that's what we must be repeating, in fact, all our life long."

The Marrow of the Gospel is one of the best commentaries ever written on Christ's person and work in redemption. Charles Spurgeon highly recommended this book, saying, "This is marrow indeed. We need say no more: Durham is a prince among spiritual expositors." Others have said this work equals if not excels all of Durham's other publications.

THE GOSPEL MINISTRY
Thomas Foxcroft

On November 20, 1717, Thomas Foxcroft presented a message on faithful gospel ministry and was strongly petitioned to have it published as a book. However, Foxcroft had not delivered this message at a conference for pastors, but at his own ordination. His intention was not so much to show his congregation what a proper minister should be like, but rather to attempt to press upon himself the importance and responsibility of the ministry for which he was being set aside. What proved a profitable exercise for him became a blessed gift for the church at large! In this book, Foxcroft exhorts ministers to make Christ the focal point of their preaching. He shows the importance of character in ministry, calling for pastors to be wise and prudent in every aspect of their lives. Likewise, ministers are urged to visit with and know their flock, and busy themselves with attending the needs of their souls. Furthermore, ministers are reminded how their service to the Lord requires great diligence and should be supremely governed by a pursuit for the conversion and edification of men in Christ. This is a pertinent reminder that pastors are called to wait on the needs of the souls of men with the good news of Christ.

AN EXPOSITION OF THE PROPHECY OF HOSEA
Jeremiah Burroughs

"Jeremiah Burroughs's Exposition of the Prophecy of Hosea is a fine and mammoth treatment of an important prophet. Spurgeon called this work 'masterly,' noting that it is 'a vast treasure-house of experimental exposition.' No work on Hosea has since superseded this commentary. Reading Burroughs is always a treat for the spiritually-minded. His writings are expositionally sound and reliable, sane and usable, warm and devotional. We pray that God will use this reprint as a valuable tool, especially for ministers and Bible teachers as they prepare messages on this graphic prophet." - Joel R. Beeke, from the biographical preface

"Jeremiah Burroughs (c.1600-1646), one of the dissenting members of the Westminster Assembly and author of over 20 volumes, including The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment and Gospel Worship, wrote a 4-volume commentary on Hosea (1643-51), which has long been regarded as a classic of both profound learning and pastoral advice. No student of Hosea can claim to have mastered the prophet without consulting Burroughs. An essential commentary." - Derek W. H. Thomas, Reformed Theological Seminary

"Jeremiah Burroughs's Hosea combines exegetical rigor, theological astuteness, and experimental refreshment. In the great tradition of Puritan biblical exposition, Burroughs opens the inspired text, and has the text address the human heart. He mines the text for its meaning and doctrine, and translates his insights into wonderful applications. With great skill and ease, Burroughs sounds out Hosea's message - its threats of judgment, its calls to repentance, its promises of mercy, and its prophecies of Christ. Still today, Burroughs makes them resonate clearly and compellingly." - Gerald M. Bilkes, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
