SOUTHERN BAPTISTS AND THE DOCTRINE OF ELECTION
Robert Selph

Well-documented book showing the historical roots of Baptists in the doctrine of election.

One reader wrote the following:

"This book was the book that confirmed to me where our Baptist founders stood in terms of their theology. It is a book that I am recommending to a Men's Bible study that has been meeting and studying the Doctrines of Grace. Baptist Preachers have quoted men like C.H. Spurgeon for years, but I've never really heard many Baptist preachers teach that he believed in Election & Evangelism just like the Bible teaches in Romans 9 & 10. Thanks for Men of God that will write and preach the truth about what Baptise are suppose to believe."

A SOUTHERN BAPTIST LOOKS AT PREDESTINATION
Patrick Hues Mell

Patrick Hues Mell (1814-1888) was one of the first presidents of the Southern Baptist Convention (1863-1871 and 1880-1887) and its parliamentarian for many years. He also was Professor of Ancient Languages at Mercer University, as well as a faithful pastor for more than 40 years. This work is hard to find but among the best brief defenses of the Doctrines of Grace, especially Predestination and Perseverance of the Saints.

Tom Nettles wrote a very helpful Introduction in which he lays out the incredible man P.H. Mell was in his generation. He says this about Mell: "We cannot exaggerate his pastoral skill, his denominational contribution and his deeply-held theological convictions. We see in particular how fully he embraced his confessional Calvinism as soteriological truth. It was deeply in his heart as biblically sound, God honoring, and soul converting. He preached this as Baptist doctrine with non-negotiable conviction. He knew that it was by these truths that salvation had come to his own heart and by these truths, without compromise, God would call all those whom had been given to Christ in the eternal covenant of redemption."

"Should this publication have the effect to confirm my brethren in the faith once delivered to the Saints, and serve, in any degree, to counteract the tendencites, in our midst to Arminianism, I shall have accomplished my main design in writing." - The Author

LECTURES TO YOUNG PEOPLE
W.B. Sprague

PREFACE

by William Sprague

The plan of the following course of Lectures was suggested to the author, by his having often felt the need of a book to put into the hands of the young, which would yield them counsel and instruction adapted to every variety of circumstances. Such a book he has here attempted to supply; a book designed to guard the moral principles and habits of youth, amidst the temptations of the world; to impress them with the infinite obligations and advantages of true religion; to conduct them through that most interesting period of anxious inquiry concerning their salvation; to bring them to a cordial acceptance of the gospel offer; to assist them in ascertaining their claims to the Christian character; and to enable them to prosecute the various duties and conflicts of the Christian life, in such a manner that they may finish their course with joy.

Several of these lectures were written during the author's connection with his late charge at West-Springfield, and the whole course was originally intended especially for the benefit of the youth of that congregation. Since his connection with his present charge, he has completed the course; and the several lectures embraced in it have been delivered in the hearing of the youth to whom he now ministers: and it is in compliance with a respectful and affectionate request from them, as well as in accordance with his original design, that the series is now given to the public.

To the youth of his former charge, whose friendly attentions he gratefully remembers, and in whose happiness he will ever cherish a lively interest, as well as to the youth of his present charge, whose many expressions of kindness he would gladly meet by his best efforts to do them good, these lectures are now,

Affectionately inscribed, with every sentiment of regard, and with fervent prayers for their present and eternal well-being,

By their obliged friend,

William Sprague

CALVINISM AND EVANGELICAL ARMINIANISM
John Girardeau

John L. Girardeau (1825-1898), a southern presbyterian theologian and Professor of Didactic and Polemic Theology at Columbia Seminary. Girardeau, who studied under James Henley Thornwell, was a strong Calvinist in the Westminster tradition. Perhaps his most notable work is the book Calvinism and Evangelical Arminianism: Compared as to election, reprobation, justification, and related doctrines.

It is a masterful rebuttal of the arguments and passages used in support of Arminianism. Girardeau steadfastly adheres to the sovereign grace of God throughout the book as he shows the confusions, misinterpretations, and inconsistencies of evangelical Arminianism.

THE CHRISTIAN'S DAILY WALK
In Holy Security and Peace
Henry Scudder, with Recommendations by John Owen & Richard Baxter

"The Christian disciple who is aspiring after that obedience, which, while it fulfils the demands of the law in the letter, is also rendered in newness of spirit, will find in the following Treatise, " Scudder's Christian's Daily Walk In Holy Security And Peace," a valuable companion and counsellor to guide him in every condition of life, and under all the vicissitudes to which life is subject." - Thomas Chalmers

"I shall therefore say no more, but that if those into whose hands this book shall come, be not either openly or secretly enemies to the whole design of it, as being "alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them," or be not possessed with prejudices against the simplicity of the gospel, and that strictness of obedience it requireth, they will find that guidance, direction, and spiritual advantage, by which their faith, love, and obedience, may be increased and improved; which will issue in the praise of God's grace, that ought to be the end of all our writing and reading in this world." - John Owen

"Reader, If thou wilt make this book, after the sacred scripture, thy daily counsellor, and monitor, and comforter, I am assured the experience of thy own great advantage, and increase of wisdom, holiness, and peace, will commend it to thee more effectually than my words can do. Read, love, and practise that which is here taught thee, and doubt not of thy everlasting happiness." - Richard Baxter

When men like Thomas Chalmers, John Owen and Richard Baxter ascribe such high praise to this book nothing more needs to be added. TAKE UP AND READ!

THEOLOGY FOR THE PEOPLE
or Biblical Doctrine, Plainly Stated
William S. Plumer

"The knowledge of God possessed by angels and by the spirits of just men made perfect in heaven, is very different in degree from that possessed by even good and able men on earth. Here all men are liable to err, and all men do err. No man on this earth is without some wrong view, or some ignorance, which mars his knowledge. This is no reason for sloth or discouragement; but is a good reason why we should be humble and careful and teachable, and pray for divine light and guidance. It is far different in heaven. There they do always hold the face of God. Matthew 18:10. They do not hope for anything, for they already possess all good. Romans 8:24. 'Now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part, but then shall I know even as also I am known.' 1 Corinthians 13:12. Knowledge without any mixture of error belongs only to the heavenly state. And yet a great part of the knowledge which the inhabitants of heaven have - concerns the very things which good men are learning in this world. Those above know perfectly what we know in parcels only." - Wm. Plumer

A TEATISE ON THE RIGHT USE OF THE FATHERS IN THE DECISION OF CONTROVERSIES
John Daille

Jean Daille (1594-1670) was a French Huguenot minister and Biblical commentator. He is mentioned in J.A. Wylie's History of Protestantism. Perhaps his most famous work is an Apology for the French Reformed Churches which was translated into English but has not been reprinted, to my knowledge, since 1653. He wrote commentaries on Philippians, Colossians, Timothy and Titus. Only the first two have been translated into English as far as I know, but they are highly recommended.

THE SYMPATHY OF CHRIST
Octavius Winslow

PREFACE

One, and the chief, design of this volume is to exhibit and illustrate the practical character of our Lord's emotional nature--thus linking Him in closer and more personal actuality with our circumstances. Every endeavor to bring into more proximate communion the personality of Christ, and the individuality of the Christian, cannot fail, however imperfect the execution, to promote the holiest interests of experimental Christianity. Much that passes for sympathy, and is really so, as commonly understood, is deficient in this one essential element, and needs to be remodeled. There is poetry and there is beauty in real sympathy; but there is more- there is action. True sympathy may exist impotent to aid, we concede, and its silent expression may not, in some instances, be the less grateful and soothing; but the noblest and most powerful form of sympathy is not merely the responsive tear, the echoed sigh, the answering look- it is the embodiment of the sentiment in actual help. It identifies itself with the object of its commiseration so personally and so closely as to realize the apostle's beautiful idea of true sympathy- "Remember those who are in bonds, as bound with them; and those who suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body." This was preeminently the character of Christ's compassion when on earth. He was willing Himself to wear the chain He came to loose, to share the sorrow He came to soothe; and the remembrance that He was likewise "in the body" constantly forced itself upon His mind, imparting to His deep sensibility and tender compassion the power and the luster of an actual and personal participation in the calamities He repaired, the needs He met, and the griefs He assuaged. Thus, from His practical sympathy, who is the Great Teacher of the Church, and the "Consolation of Israel," may we derive lessons of holy instruction, and streams of the richest comfort.

To aid this object, the present volume is, with diffidence, offered to the Christian Church. Composed under the pressure of important ministerial, extended pastoral, and continuous public labor, it necessarily partakes of the imperfections of a work thus written, and often at a season when the jaded powers, both of mind and body, demanded the restorative of sleep. But if the "lame take the prey," the author may humbly hope that this lowly attempt to present the Savior more vividly to the personal realization of the reader, and thus render Him more loved and precious, and His example more closely studied and imitated, will not be without acceptance and blessing to the one Church of God, the sorrowing, suffering Body of a Divine and sympathizing Head. The Triune Jehovah bless the work, and to the Sacred Three in One shall be the glory! Amen.

GOD SOVEREIGN AND MAN FREE
or The Doctrine of Divine Foreordination and Man's Free Agency
Nathan Rice

Written in the mid-nineteenth century and recently made available again as a facsimile reprint, God Sovereign and Man Free sets forth an irrefutable defense of the scriptural doctrines of divine foreordination and election. Its balance of positive scriptural proofs, rebuttals of philosophical Arminian objections, and practical applications make it useful for any believer who is seeking to understand the biblical teaching on divine sovereignty and human responsibility, regardless of his primary motivation.

The doctrine of Divine foreordination (predestination) is perhaps the most misunderstood and misrepresented doctrine of the Reformed faith. It was said by John Wesley to make "all preaching vain," that it "tends to destroy that holiness which is the end of all the ordinances of God," "destroy our zeal for good works," and that it also has "a direct and manifest tendency to overthrow the whole Christian revelation." To the contrary, the author of this book shows, first, that the lives of those who have held to this doctrine have been characterized by eminent holiness and a profound evangelical zeal, and second, that it is clearly taught in the Scriptures. All who have been or who will be saved, owe their salvation to the purpose of God to bring them under the means of grace and to renew and sanctify their hearts; and they who are lost, will owe their ruin to their sin. This doctrine saves all that are saved, and injures none. It takes multitudes to heaven who would have perished; while those who are lost, perish on account of their sin.

MANUAL OF THEOLOGY
John L. Dagg

Contains a 53-page autobiography of this Southern Baptist.

Blue hardcover with bright gilt lettering on front cover and spine. 379 pages.

BOOK ONE - Study of Religious Truth

BOOK TWO - Doctrine Concerning God

BOOK THREE - Doctrine Concerning the Will and Works of God

BOOK FOUR - Doctrine Concerning the Fall and Present State of Man

BOOK FIVE - Doctrine Concerning Jesus Christ

BOOK SIX - Doctrine Concerning the Holy Spirit

BOOK SEVEN - Doctrine Concerning Divine Grace

BOOK EIGHT - Doctrine Concerning the Future World

One of the most precious things about Dagg's MANUAL OF THEOLOGY is the opening address which introduces each of the Eight Books that comprize the volume. Before expounding the doctrine in each section he offers an extended Word of Exhortation to the reader. For instance, before teaching about the Doctrine Concerning God is his exhortation entitled Duty of Love to God. It would bear great fruit to simply read the eight Exhortations on their own as they truly prepare the heart for the study that will follow.

LECTURES ON FEMALE SCRIPTURE CHARACTERS
William Jay

William Jay pastored a Congregational church in Bath, England, for some sixty years. Over those years he studied the lives and actions of numerous females in the Old and New Testaments. During a period of recovery from a serious illness, he collated for publication these earlier studies.

Chapters are devoted to Hannah, the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met at the well, and Mary Magdalene. Lydia, Dorcas, and the sisters, Martha and Mary, are among those also studied. The author commented on their character and actions and made numerous applications. This book can be read and applied profitably by males, females, and families today just as it was a hundred and fifty years ago.

The pages of scripture breathed life into everyday events. The Shunamite woman in ElishaÆs day had to deal with the death of her son. The poor widow at the temple treasury gave an insignificant offering to the eyes of all but Jesus. The redeemed sinner, who approached Jesus in SimonÆs house, did so to the chagrin and criticism of Simon. As Martha and Mary hosted Christ, Martha learned much when a conversation with Christ took an unexpected turn.

In recounting these stories, the author is careful to stay within the bounds of scripture as he drives home to the reader's heart points of encouragement, enlightenment, and correction. As each subject is examined, the ultimate focus is on Christ.

The final chapter is devoted to Lot's wife. In Luke l7:32, Christ told His hearers to "Remember Lot's wife." What a fitting conclusion to this volume. Jay counsels his readers in the value of remembering. I believe his admonition is wise not only in regard to Lot's wife, but, also, to our remembering the lessons taught to each woman.

THE COLLECTED SERMONS OF BENJAMIN MORGAN PALMER
B.M. Palmer

These sermons constitute nearly an entire Systematic Theology by one of the greatest preachers in America in the 19th century.

The Obituary for Dr. Palmer appearing in The Interior read as follows:

"The decease of Dr. Palmer of New Orleans is like a change in the landscape of the South. As far as it is possible for one man in the space of a lifetime to be a part of the fixed order of things, Dr. Palmer has become identified like some old-time landmark with his denomination, his city and his section of the nation. He was one of that class of men who are incapable of change; what he was as he came to the maturity of manhood he remained until death. It is doubtless true that the world would be unfortunate if all its strong men should crystallize in that adamantine way, but living in a time that suffers little lack of impulses to progress, we ought to thank God that he still scatters through the churches some immovable men to hinder and obstruct headlong haste. From an almost opposite pole of Christian temperment THE INTERIOR clearly recognizes that Dr. Palmer served God and his generation as a symbol of the immutability of the great essentials of our religion. His faithful witness to Jesus Christ in the word of his preaching and the example of his ministry gave him such power in New Orleans as few of the Lord's ambassadors have ever wielded in any age of the church. By all consent he was acknowledged for years to be the most influential man in that city, and he was so brave and outspoken that he made for righteousness not only in the private lives of men but in the civic life of the community.

He was born in Charleston, S.C. in 1818 and had been over leading churches in Savannah and Columbia before he went to the First Presbyterian church of New Orleans in 1856. His pastoral term there covered fifty-six consecutive years. He retained excellent vigor and still preached powerfully despite his great age, and his life might have been prolonged still for several years if he had not suffered injury beneath a street car which ran him down in the streets of New Orleans a few weeks ago. He did not die from the direct effects of that accident, but the shock seemed so to weaken his vital powers that fatal disease soon supervened." [Excerpted from The Interior, Volume 33, Number 1671, June 5, 1902, page 734.]

MEDITATIONS UPON CERTAIN PSALMS
The First Psalm, The Penitential Psalms, Seven Consolatory Psalms
Sir Richard Baker

In 'Commenting and Commentaries" Spurgeon gives Baker the highest praise when he says: "His 'Meditations and Disquisitions' are altogether marrow and fat-ness. We have often tried to quote from him and have found ourselves so embarrassed with riches that we have been inclined to copy the whole book. Why it has not been reprinted, and made to pass through fifty editions, we cannot tell."

This remarkable and extremely rare volume examines the following Psalms -

PSALM 1

THE SEVEN PENITENTIAL PSALMS

PSALM 6

PSALM 32

PSALM 38

PSALM 102

PSALM 130

PSALM 143

THE SEVEN CONSOLATORY PSALMS

PSALM 23

LETTERS ON PRACTICAL SUBJECTS TO A DAUGHTER
W.B. Sprague

The reading of W.B. Sprague's "Letters To A Daughter", was often attended by the impression that here is a 19th century Solomon intent upon imparting to his child wisdom and sanctified common sense akin to The Proverbs. Indeed, as one familiar with The Proverbs read this volume, repeated connections will be readily made between the practical directives it contains & the inspired wisdom set before Solomon's son.
