YOUNG PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS
Help and Hope for Today's Teenagers
J.R. Miller

"The most important of all lessons are those which teach us how to live. There come points and experiences in every young person's life when a word may give help, save from mistake, and make the way plain and clear. It is in the hope of throwing light on some of the questions which are sure to arise in young people's lives, that these chapters have been written. It is not claimed that all the 'problems' are here considered; but perhaps those eager to make life beautiful and rich will find a little help in some of these pages." -from the Author's Preface

Miller writes with a genuine love for the young as he addresses such pertinent topics as:

WHAT AM I HERE FOR?

ABOUT YOUR MOTHER

ABOUT YOUR FATHER

ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS

GETTING ALONG WITH PEOPLE

A HIGH SENSE OF HONOR

LEARNING CONTENTMENT

and 20 more brief but powerful chapters

"If any 19th century American Christian writer warrants reprinting, it is J.R. Miller! His writing style is delightfully smooth, his insights are spiritual diamonds on every page, and his pastoral applications are delivered with the skill of a well-seasoned physician of souls." - Pastor Bill Shishko, Franklin Square, NY

ADDRESSES TO YOUNG MEN
Daniel Baker, the Young Man's Preacher

Dwight L. Moody wrote the Preface to this outstanding volume of addresses to Young Men which were preached by Rev. Daniel Baker (1791-1857) during his wonderful ministry in the American South. The Life of Baker was published by Banner of Truth and titled, MAKING MANY GLAD. His life and ministry were also highlighted by Douglas Kelly in his book PREACHERS WITH POWER. In the words of Moody:

"In reading two volumes of sermons by Rev. Daniel Baker of America, preached thirty years ago, I have thought no addresses could be more suitable for the present times than these. They have been a great help to me; and many who are now preaching the gospel in America bear similar testimony. Knowing particularly that he was the 'young man's preacher,' I believe his printed sermons will give a fresh impulse for work to many, and be the means of pointing the way to multitudes who are inquiring. May God, who alone can draw men unto Him, so use these words, that the writer of them, being dead, may yet speak with power to men's souls."

In the Author's Preface we read, "These discourses were designed to be on an Awakening character, and were preached (in substance) in numerous revivals, and were blessed to the hopeful conversion of many precious souls, of whom some fifty or more have become ministers of the gospel. May He who was pleased to bless these discourses when they came from the Pulpit, bless them also now coming from the Press. And to His great Name be all the praise!"

YOUNG MEN: Faults & Ideals
Includes a Seven Day Guide and Commentary for Young Men
J.R. Miller with Ray Rhodes, Jr.

Young Men: Faults and Ideals by J.R. Miller. This classic book for young men age 10 to 29 has been updated with commentary added and a study guide by Ray Rhodes. How can a young man cultivate godly courage? What should be the goals of a young man? ...a trumpet's call to father's, grandfathers and others. Miller was one of the most gifted and godly men of his generation. A trusted ally in the battle for the hearts and minds of young men.

"This book is a trumpet call to fathers, grandfathers and others whose duties involve mentoring, teaching and training of boys. When the watchmen standing post on the walls of ancient Jerusalem blew the trumpet, it spurred the men out of their slumber into decisive action. Men drew their swords, ready to repel the invader and turn back the marauder. Our adversary is equally as ravenous and his methods as insidious. Let this book be a trumpet's blast to us. We are battling for our homes and families, our sons and daughters, wives and loved ones. I pray that as you read this text you will be as I was--goaded out of my complacency and challenged to wade back into the fray." - Lietenant Colonel Kevin Jarrard, USMCR Commandant of Cadets, Riverside Military Academy

BEWARE OF RATTLESNAKES!
Lessons for Teens from History, Sports and Odds and Ends
Peter Jeffery

Peter Jeffery has a special gift of saying a great deal in a few words. Once again he has hit the mark in this brand new title intended for young people. There are 52 very brief chapters covering a great variety of subjects from Kings and Presidents to athletes and animals. Young pople (and the not so young) will find the author an able guide to lead them into lessons that will stick and stay. This can be given as a gift to young people, and also used in Family Worship by moms and dads. The first time I heard Peter Jeffery preach I was immediately struck with his uncany ability to illustrate profound truth in simple words. It is a true honor for Solid Ground Christian Books to be asked to publish the latest book from the heart of a dear friend who loves Christ Jesus more than life.

"Peter Jeffrey is a man who is rooted. He is rooted in who he was before he became a believer in Jesus Christ. He is rooted in who he became by the grace of God after becoming a Christian. And he is growing his roots in who he will be in glory. I see all three phases of Peter's life in this remarkable book. He has not strayed far from his roots. His genius is keeping us connected to the foundational issues of life. This new book will be perfect for young Christians of all ages--teens and seniors, men or women. Sunday School teachers, parents for family devotions, home schoolers and those who want to see how to communicate truth in small bites that get eaten need to read this book! If my grown up children were still home, I would use this book for family devotions. If I were teaching a Sunday School class for boys or girls, I would use this book. If I were starting a beginners class for new converts, I would use this book. If I wanted to help a non-reader get started reading good things that create a thirst for more, I would give them this book. Each section is just the right size and grabs thought. If I were living in an estate or if I was a soldier at war or if I were a student off at school or if I were a busy businessman who knew my way around business but not the Bible yet, I would want this book." - Steve Martin (retired after 31 years of pastoral ministry in Atlanta, Georgia, now has a ministry of encouragement to other, younger pastors and speaks at churches, conferences, and retreats.)

"Destiny beats in the heart of man. Each of us were born for a purpose bigger than ourselves. We know instinctively that life matters. The things done on earth matter eternally. In the race of life, the opposition is not the people around us, but the mediocrity that so many seem to settle for. This is a book your heart will love and your soul will cherish, revealing what it takes to win, both in sport and in life; and more than that, the most important news we could ever hear, the Gospel of Jesus Christ." - John Samson, author of "Twelve What Abouts" by Solid Ground

"Twenty years ago, Robin Leech had a television program, LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS. Peter's book could well be called LIFE-LESSONS FROM THE FAMOUS AND OBSCURE because he skillfully shows time after time that we can learn profound truths in some of the most unusual ways from all kinds of people if we are humble and observant." - Steve Martin, Fayetteville, GA

THE SCRIPTURE GUIDE:
A Familiar Introduction to the Study of the Bible
James W. Alexander

"The great end of all religious teaching would be attained, if men could be brought to read the Bible aright. No books, therefore, are unimportant, which point to the Holy Scriptures. Such is the present attempt, which is expressly dedicated to the YOUNG. It is intended for excitement as well as instruction; not only to communicate information and explain difficulties, but to offer inducements for the study of the Bible." - from the author's Preface

"This fascinating book by a superb theologian and pastor provides a wealth of information about the Bible and serves as an able introductory guide to Bible study as well as an effective evangelistic tool. The directions given in the last chapters on how to read the Bible are themselves worth the price of the book." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke

James W. Alexander (1804-1859) was the oldest son of Archibald Alexander. In addition to being a brilliant lecturer and preacher in college, seminary and the local church, Alexander labored to write books that would speak to the hearts and minds of the simple. He wrote numerous volumes for The American Sunday School Union that were unusually popular with all ages and all classes of people. THIS MAY BE HIS BEST CONTRIBUTION TO THAT DISTINGUISHED MINISTRY.

Written in the form of a story, Alexander has two young boys spend the Christmas holiday with their elderly Uncle Austin, who has earned the nickname "The Bible Man." Follow these young fellows as they enjoy their vacation by learning life-changing lessons from the Holy Scriptures. The final three chapters set forth 30 Directions for Studying the Bible. These are worth the price of the book!

LECTURES ON THE BIBLE TO THE YOUNG
for Their Instruction and Excitement
John Eadie

In March 1848 John Eadie (1810-1876) sent forth this volume with the desire to instruct and excite young people concerning the value of the Bible. The response was so encouraging that four years later he issued a revised and enlarged edition, which is here offered to the public for the first time in more than a century.

"Though written for the rising generation, these plain addresses are not meant for mere children. Simplicity has, indeed, been aimed at in their style and arrangement, in order to adapt them to a class of young readers whose minds have already enjoyed some previous training and discipline. They are designed to stimulate thought, as well as impart information. The object of their publication is not only to promote present improvement, but also to foster in the youthful spirit a hallowed taste for further study in the best of all the sciences." - From the Author's Preface

After a brief Introduction Eadie sets before his readers the following six heads:

READ THE BIBLE

UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE

BELIEVE THE BIBLE

REMEMBER THE BIBLE

PRACTICE THE BIBLE

CIRCULATE THE BIBLE

SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG
The History of Josiah, The Young King of Judah
Thomas H. Gallaudet

THIS IS A BONUS VOLUME TO THE SCRIPTURE BIOGRAPHY FOR THE YOUNG SERIES

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE

"The author adds one more volume, for children and youth, to the list of Scripture biographies. He rejoices that others too have been engaged in similar labors. As a father, he longs for the time when the histories which God himself directed to be written for our instruction and that of our offspring, may be prepared for their perusal, interwoven with such elucidations and instructions, and made the basis of such exhortations and admonitions, as will attract their attention, with an increasing interest, to the divinely inspired record, and lead them to regard the facts of the Bible as the most important facts to be known and pondered in the whole circle of their reading.

He will only add, that his own attention has been arrested by the character of Josiah, as one that cornbines traits of peculiar excellence, which deserve to be strikingly illustrated and set before our children and youth, as models of imitation and incentives to duty.

How far he has succeeded in attempting to do this, the public will decide. If the book does good, especially to the souls of children and youth, his highest wishes will be answered."

SAVING KNOWLEDGE
Addressed to Young Men
William G. Blaikie and Thomas Guthrie

SAVING KNOWLEDGE Addressed to Young Men and was written by two of the leading Scottish ministers of the 19th century: Thomas Guthrie and William Garden Blaikie. Guthrie (1803-1870) contributed five chapters and Blaikie (1820-1899) seven chapters. The titles and author of each chapter is as follows:



1) GOD'S VERDICT ON MAN (Blaikie)

2) GOD'S SENTENCE ON MAN (Blaikie)

3) THE EVIL OF SIN (Guthrie)

4) MAN'S INABILITY TO SAVE HIMSELF (Guthrie)

5) GOD'S GIFT TO MAN (Blaikie)

6) THE SAVIOR'S PERSON (Blaikie)

7) THE WORK AND GLORY OF THE SAVIOR (Guthrie)

8) THE WAY OF SALVATION (Guthrie)

9) THE SINNER'S LINK TO THE SAVIOR -- FAITH (Blaikie)

10) THE SPIRIT OF LIFE (Blaikie)

11) MADE HOLY (Guthrie)

12) THE SACRAMENTS (Blaikie)

This book was published in 1870. Blaikie was 50 years old and Guthrie was 67. Here we have the mature and ripened fruit of seasoned veterans who write as dying men to dying men. This is not only a book to be given to every serious young man, but a book to be read by older men as well.
