|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

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

|DISCUSSIONS: Theological, Evangelical, Philosophical, Secular, and Miscellaneous, 5-volume set|
ROBERT LEWIS DABNEY
Set of five books. Discussions on subjects theological, evangelical, philosophical, secular, and miscellaneous.
B.B. Warfield called Dabney "the most conspicuous figure and the leading theological guide of the Southern Presbyterian Church, the most prolific theological writer that Church has as yet produced." These Five volumes of articles and essays vindicate Warfield's statement. "This is not a book to be read and returned to the library shelf," states the well known Baptist minister Al Martin, "rather, as I have found to my own profit, it ought to be read, digested, and kept close at hand as a guide, companion and constant prod to us." Dr. Archibald Alexander called Dabney, "the best teacher of theology in the United States, if not the world." Freundt notes, "Dabney championed the doctrines of Calvinism and applied them consistently and practically to the great issues of his times."

Dabney and James Henley Thornwell were two of Southern Presbyterianism's most influential scholars. They were both Calvinist, Old School Presbyterians, and social conservatives.

|THE COLLECTED SERMONS OF BENJAMIN MORGAN 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."
