COME YE APART
A Daily Devotional Journey Through the Four Gospels of our Lord Jesus Christ
J.R. Miller

A daily devotional journey through the life of Christ as recorded in all four Gospels. This daily devotional would be a great gift for your Sunday School Teacher, your favorite missionary, your children, your parents or yourself. In Miller's own words: "This volume of a year's readings has been prepared in the hope that it may prove daily food to some earnest children of God in their life of care, struggle, and duty. It is made to cover the earthly life of our Lord, from its beginning to its close... The author's aim has been to put a life-thought on each page... The book has but a single aim: to honor and glorify Christ in the eyes of those who follow its pages."

"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 of Franklin Square, NY

"This book is a calendar for devotional reading. At the top of each page is a verse of Scripture, and the texts chosen are made to cover the earthly life of out Lord. The readings which follow each text are intended to be neither exegetical nor expository, but practical and promotive of a devotional spirit. They are exceedingly full of suggestions to duty, and encouragements to a holy life. It is a good book to take into one's 'inner chamber' as a help to to devout meditation upon the words of our Savior." - New England and Yale Review

The Poor Man's New Testament Commentary
ROBERT HAWKER

"Gentleman, if you want something full of marrow and fatness, cheering to your own hearts by way of comment, and likely to help you in giving your hearers rich expositions, buy Dr. Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary. Dr. Hawker was the very least of commentators in the matter of criticism, but he sees Jesus, and that is a sacred gift which is most precious whether the owner be a critic or no. There is always such a savor of the Lord Jesus Christ in Dr. Hawker that you cannot read him without profit." - Charles H. Spurgeon from "Commenting on Commentaries"

""Robert Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary edifies believers by providing spiritual comments on each section of Scripture. The prayerful 'reflections' section that follows Hawker's comments on each chapter of Scripture marvelously enhances this devotional character. For the genuine Christian, here is devotional writing at its best: warmly Christ-centered, eminently practical, personally searching. I commend it highly for private and family worship." - Joel Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI



Solid Ground Christian Books is thrilled to announce the completion of Robert Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary. We have published the New Testament Commentary in three large volumes, and then the entire Old Testament Commentary in six volumes.

COMMENTARY ON THE EPISTLE TO THE ROMANS
A Classic Reformed Exposition
William G.T. Shedd

First published in 1879, this classic Reformed Commentary has been reprinted again and again through the years. It is an outstanding contribution to the study of the Epistle that has turned the world upside-down.

"When studying Romans, I usually reach for Shedd first. Highly valued in past generations, Shedd's careful treatment of the original text is succinct and yet richly suggestive of profitable lines of exposition. A must have for serious study of Paul's most important letter." Dr. Robert P. Martin, Pastor, Emmanuel Reformed Baptist Church, Seattle, Washington, Editor, Reformed Baptist Theological Review

"Believing that the Epistle to the Romans is 'an inspired system of theology,' Shedd sought to give particular attention to the great doctrines of original sin in chapter 5, indwelling sin in chapters 7 and 8, and election and reprobation in chapters 9, 10 and 11. The merit of Shedd's commentary is found in his fresh examination of the Greek text, combined with an appreciative interaction with the best of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Reformed exegesis, and his abiding commitment to the traditional Reformed concept that the intended fruit of exegesis is a systematic statement of religious truth." - Rev. Sherman Isbell

NOTES CRITICAL AND EXPLANATORY ON THE FOUR GOSPELS
Melancthon Jacobus

Charles Hodge, William Henry Green, J.W. Alexander and others from Princeton Seminary said, "The excellent Commentaries of Dr. Melancthon Jacobus have deservedly attained a high reputation, and their wide circulation proves how well they are adapted to the wants of both ministers and laymen. They present, in a brief compass, the results of extensive erudition, abound in judicious exposition and pertinent illustration, and are, moreover, distinguished by doctrinal soundness, evangelical character, and an eminently devout spirtit."

"Jacobus is sound and plain, and is therefore a safe guide to Sunday-School teachers and others who need to see the results of learning without the display of it." - C.H. Spurgeon

"This work is characterized by solid learning, sound doctrine, and lucid statements, a pleasant style, and the most serious spirit of piety. It is much needed." William S. Plumer

"I consider that I would be doing service to the cause of pure religion, scriptural theology, and saving piety, could I contribute to the introduction of Professor Jacobus' Notes into the families, Sabbath Schools, and Bible Classes of our land." - Thomas Smyth

"Jacobus writes in the popular style of Albert Barnes, and is solidly Reformed. Some commentators make you plow an acre to find a single nugget; but not Jacobus. His exegetical notes are concise but meaty, with rich veins of practical exposition." -Dr. Robert P. Martin

The Poor Man's Concordance and Dictionary of the Sacred Scriptures
Robert Hawker

"I have been prompted to the work proposed in the title page, from a humble hope, that under the blessing of God the Holy Ghost; it may be rendered useful to the Christian world in general; and yet more particularly so, to that handful of people, who read my POOR MAN'S COMMENTARY on the Bible. It struck me, that a work of this kind, might form a proper Appendix to it, and be found not a little helpful to serious readers. Under this impression, I have engaged in this service; and for their accomadation, have directed the bookseller to publish an edition of it, upon the same plan and form as the Commentary. May the Lord commission both to his glory!"

With these words Dr. Robert Hawker introduced his Concordance and Dictionary of the Sacred Scriptures. All who have loved Hawker's Commentaries and Morning & Evening Portions will find this volume to be of emmence service.

This is a 484 page volume in hardcover with the same cover as the Old Testament Commentary will contain a Biographical Sketch of the author by George Ella. It will complete the entire 10 volumes of his exposition of the Sacred Scriptures.

THE WORD AND PRAYER
Classic Devotions from the Minor Prophets
John Calvin compiled by Charles E. Edwards

In 1897 the Presbyterian Board of Publication first published this Devotional Gem drawn from John Calvin's remarkable teaching on the Minor Prophets. Rev. Charles E. Edwards did a masterful job of selecting an expostion from Calvin's Lectures to stand beside the actual prayer that Calvin used to close that particular Lecture.

The Apostle's declared, "But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the Word" (Acts 6:4). Exposition and prayer are found here in the perfect introduction to John Calvin. This can serve as a tool to help the reader go through the Minor Prophets with the able assistance of the Prince of Expositors.

"This precious book confirms Calvin's conviction that the Word and prayer work together to develop genuine piety in the Christian. Calvin taught that the Word is God's communication to us, providing us with spiritual food and medicine for spiritual health. Prayer is our communication to God by which we express praise and adoration, and bow in submissive piety before Him. May God mightily use this little volume to foster this spirit of devotion in many hearts and lives." --Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

"Having made use of Calvin's devotions and prayers from the Minor Prophets since I was a high school student, I am delighted to commend them to a new generation (my old small green paperback edition is now flimsy and dog-eared!). THE WORD AND PRAYER: Classic Devotions from the Minor Prophets by John Calvin, compiled by Charles E. Edwards, will prove a welcome aid to the cultivation of Christian piety, as well as public prayer." - Ligon Duncan, Pastor of First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS

PAUL THE PREACHER:
A Popular and Practical Exposition of His Discourses and Speeches as Recorded in the Acts of the Apostles
John Eadie

"Everything that John Eadie wrote is pure gold. His commentaries on Paul's epistles are valued highly by careful expositors. Solid Ground Christian Books has done a great service by bringing Eadie's Paul the Preacher back into print." - Dr. Robert P. Martin

"It is humbly hoped that the volume may be useful in giving ordinary readers a juster and fuller conception of the creed and preaching, the life and work, of the great apostle of the Gentiles, who, amidst all diversities of place, time, audience, and immediate theme, made it his constant business to preach Christ crucified. May we know Him to be 'the power of God' and the 'wisdom of God,' and experience that change of heart which is only effected by such a manifestation of His truth and glory as He vouchsafed to Saul of Tarsus."

-from the Author's Preface, May 1859

"Designed to give ordinary readers a juster and fuller conception of the doctrine and life-work of the apostle. AN ABLE WORK."

- C.H. Spurgeon

"Everything that John Eadie wrote is pure gold. He was simply the best exegete of his generation. His commentaries on Paul's epistles are valued highly by careful expositors.

John Eadie (1810-1876) was a prominent Scottish Seccession and United Presbyterian Church minister and New Testament scholar. He was appointed Professor of Biblical Literature in the United Presbyterian Divinity Hall in 1843. His widely acclaimed commentaries on Paul's epistles prompted his appointment to the New Testament committee engaged in preparing the Revised Version of the Bible in English.

A SHORT EXPLANATION OF THE EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS
David Dickson

"We need say no more than get it, and you will find abundance of suggestions for profitable trains of thought. Dickson is a writer after our own heart. For preachers he is a great ally. There is nothing brilliant or profound; but everything is clear and well arranged, and the unction runs down like the oil from Aaron's head." - C.H. Spurgeon

"I have taken all my good deeds, and all my bad deeds, and cast them through each other in a heap before the Lord, and fled from both, and betaken myself to the Lord Jesus Christ, and in him I have sweet peace." In these words David Dickson expressed his faith as he was on his death-bed. It is with such words of grace that Dickson expounds the Epistle to the Hebrews.

A CRITICAL AND GRAMMATICAL COMMENTARY ON THE PASTORAL EPISTLES
Charles J. Ellicott

Benjamin B. Warfield wrote, "It is wonderful how even the strictest grammatical study can be informed with reverence. You cannot read six lines of Bishop Ellicott's 'Commentaries, Critical and Grammatical,' on Paul's epistles without feeling through and through that here is a man of God studying the Word of God. Let us make such commentators our models in our study of the Word, and learn like them to keep in mind Whose word it is we are dealing with, even when we are merely analyzing its grammatical expression."

"It was C.S. Lewis who once recommended that it is vital for us to read the old books to enable the sea-breeze of the centuries to clear away the smog of the present. This is also very true with respect to commentaries. More recent commentaries are all too frequently shaped by present concerns and interests. The older commentaries, like this one by Ellicott on the Pastoral Epistles, approach God's Word from different perspectives and provide well-needed correctives to modern interpretations. Ellicott's work on the Pastorals is a classic study from the nineteenth century and I am thrilled it is being brought back into print." - Michael A. G. Haykin.

Dr. Eadie says, "Ellicott is distinguished by close and uniform adherence to grammatical canon, without much expansion into exegesis." Dr. Riddle thinks Ellicott to be in many respects without an English rival. For scholars only. -from "Commenting on Commentaries" by C.H. Spurgeon

Ellicott concludes his Preface with these words:, "I now commit this volume to the reader, with the humble prayer to Almighty God that He may vouchsafe to bless this effort to expound and illustrate a most vital and most consoling portion of His holy Word; may He pity the weakness and forgive the errors of His servant."

LECTURES ON THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES
John Dick

"John Dick's Lectures on the Acts of the Apostles is marked by the same penetrating exegetical and theological insight that characterizes his famous Lectures on Theology. Every paragraph sheds light on the sacred page. Dick wrote with great warmth and eloquence. This book doesn't just inform the mind; it also stirs the heart. These lectures are a grand tour of Acts conducted by a master in Israel." - Dr. Robert Paul Martin

John Dick (1764-1833) During the period of his ministry in Glasgow, attracted much notice by the delivery of a series of monthly Sabbath evening lectures on the Acts of the Apostles, which were afterwards published at intervals in two volumes; and, on a second edition being called for, were collected in one volume. These lectures, which were followed up by a series of discourses on the divine attributes, are reckoned models for the exposition of the Holy Scriptures.

EXPOSITORY DISCOURSES ON THE BOOK OF GENESIS
Interspersed with Practical Reflections
ANDREW FULLER

"Weighty, judicious, and full of Gospel truth. One of the very best series of discourses extant on Genesis." -C.H. Spurgeon

"Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was an outstanding figure with qualities that make him one of the most attractive figures in Baptist history. Many in his day could echo the words of his very close friend William Carey , 'I loved him.'

As a pastor, part of the way that Fuller gave legs to his conviction about Scripture was to follow the expository preaching method of men like John Calvin (1509-1564) or the English Puritans and preach through Bible books consecutively verse by verse, chapter by chapter. He thus laid before his people 'the whole counsel of God' (Acts 20:27). Although he covered a significant amount of Scripture this way in his Kettering pulpit, only two of those expository series eventually found their way into print: one on Revelation, published in the final year of his life, and this one on Genesis, from 1806. It has long been out of print as an independent volume, though it has been available through various editions of Fuller's complete works. It is good to see it back in print, for as Charles H. Spurgeon once remarked about this very book: it is 'weighty, judicious, and full of Gospel truth. One of the very best series of discourses extant upon Genesis.'" - Michael Haykin

"Having just completed a study through the Book of Genesis, it is a great shame that this book was not available for the whole class. Like Dickson on Hebrews it is worth its weight in gold. Fuller often says more in one paragraph than many men say in a chapter. His 'Practical Reflections' are outstanding." - the Publisher

THE PSALMS IN HUMAN LIFE
How God's People Have Feasted on the Psalter Through All Ages
Rowland E. Prothero

"The Psalms in Human Life by Rowland E. Porthero is a fascinating account of the varied ways in which the 150 Psalms have influenced, encouraged, challenged, and preserved God's people through the centuries. You will thank God for this book!" - David B. Calhoun

"The Psalms are a mirror in which each man sees the motions of his own soul. They express in exquisite words the kinship which every thoughtful human heart craves to find with a supreme, unchanging, loving God, who will be to him a protector, guardian, and friend. They utter the ordinary experiences, the familiar thoughts of men; but they give to these a width of range, an intensity, a depth, and an elevation which transcend the capacity of the most gifted. To collect together some of the countless instances in which the Psalms have guided, controlled, and sustained the lives of men and women in all ages of human history, and at all crises of their fate, is the purpose of this book." - The Author's Introduction

Rowland Edmund Prothero (1851 - 1937) was a british agriculturist, editor, and writer. He edited "The Quarterly Review" (1894-99) and was president of the Board of Agriculture (1916-19). Among his books are "Pioneers and Progress of English Farming" (1887), "Life and Correspondence of Dean Stanley" (1893), and "The Land and Its people (1925). "Psalms in Human Life" went through 29 editions between 1903 and 1920 alone.

NOTES ON GALATIANS
J. Gresham Machen, Edited by John H. Skilton

The chief feature of this volume is that it makes available in convenient form the "Notes on Biblical Exposition" which Dr. J. Gresham Machen published in the earlier 'Christianity Today' from January 1931 to February 1933. Students at Westminster Seminary have made profitable use of these Notes on Galatians 1:1 - 3:14 by following them, with minor inconveience, through bound periodical volumes; but for many others who might greatly benefit from them, they have long been inaccessible.

Here you will find a master exegete opening up important and essential meterial to help undertsand the import of the great Apoostle on this vital portion of Scripture.

"Notes on Galatians is one of the hidden jewels of J Gresham Machen's outstanding contributions to Christian literature. As Galatians has again become a battleground for theological controversy over the nature of the gospel, Dr Machen's exegetical insight and theological sturdiness provide wise and careful guidance for a new generation of Bible students. Written for a previous generation it continues to speak to the contemporary one." - Dr. Sinclair Ferguson

"Dr. Machen was a master at crystal clear teaching and his work on Galatians is a good model of this gift. In a day of confused and confusing teaching on this Book, Dr. Machen reminds us of the dynamic power of this Gospel of justification by faith alone in Christ alone that is opened so richly by the Apostle Paul." - Pastor Bill Shishko

"Machen wrote on Galatians to inform his students and to help Sunday School teachers. It is written with delightful clarity and incidentally introduces us to what Machen did very well, teach the New Testament to students at Princeton and Westminster Seminaries. It is wonderfully lucid; a pleasure to read; a model for anyone who preaches the Bible." - Geoff Thomas

"This is Machen at his best, and surely begs to be re-printed. Especially the introductory chapters are needed nowadays." - Pastor Tom Lyon

"J. Gresham Machen is perhaps best known for his defense of Christianity and especially for his articulate advocacy of confessional Reformed theology. By training, however, he was a New Testament scholar and by practice he was a biblical exegete of the first order. This little work on Galatians is still useful as a witness to Machen's clear-headed insight into the nature and message of Paul's letter to the Galatians. This witness seems particularly relevant in the midst of the current confusion surrounding Paul and the doctrine of justification." - Dr. R. Scott Clark

The late John H. Skilton did a great service to the church by getting this material from various places and putting it all conveniently in one place.

SABBATH SCRIPTURE READINGS FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT
Thomas Chalmers

Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847) was considered by many the greatest Scots preacher of his day. This volume contains over 430 pages of personal musings upon every chapter in the New Testament.

From October 1841 - September 1846 Chalmers compiled these "Sabbath Readings" as he systematically worked through every chapter in the New Testament. Like Augustine's "Confessions", these meditations are primarily written in the form and language of prayer. Here is Chalmers at his very best!

"They are precious fragments of immortal thought." - Charles H. Spurgeon

"Thomas Chalmers was the colossus of 19th century Scottish Christianity. His high eminence as a public figure did not preclude his deep humility of heart. In this volume we see the great man tender and childlike before God, willing to be taught and honest about his many struggles within, both with sin and comprehension of the Word. Chalmers becomes a welcome and friendly companion as we share in his meditations. " - Pastor Roger Salter

"Valuable insights from Thomas Chalmers drawn from his Sabbath meditations on Scripture. These are delightful and especially helpful." - Dr. Derek Thomas

"Thomas Chalmers' conversion was one of the great turning points in the history of the Church of Scotland. His personal investment in the pastoral and theological education of the core group of men who became the leading lights of the evangelical awakening in Scotland in the nineteenth century is one of the great stories of God's display of his sovereignty in the building up of the church. My own copy of Chalmers Life and Works comes right out of the library of the now-defunct United Free College Library of Glasgow: given to me as a gift by my mother many years ago. One of the choicest parts of that 13-volume treasure is Chalmers' Sabbath Readings, and so I am especially glad to commend these 'soul-fatting' messages to a new generation of readers." - Dr. J. Ligon Duncan

Thomas Carlyle said of Chalmers: "It is not often that the world has seen men like Thomas Chalmers, nor can the world afford to forget them; or in its most careless mood, be willing to. Probably the time is coming when it will be more apparent than it is now to everyone, that here, intrinsically, was the chief Scottish man of his time - a man possessed of such massive geniality of intellect as belonged to no other man. What a grand simplicity, broad humour, blent so kindly with enthusiasm, ardour and blazing thought - a man of such noble valour, strength and piety - above all things, of such perfect veracity, I have not met with in these times. Honour to him, honour belongs to him, and to the essential work he did - an everlasting continuance among the possessions of this world"

A COMMENTARY ON THE EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS
Exegetical and Expository
William Gouge

William Gouge (1575-1653) was born in Stratford-Bow Middlesex County, England. He was Educated in Paul's School, London, Felstad in Essex, and at Eton School and graduated from King's College, Cambridge, followed by a brilliant teaching career there.

Following his ordination at 32 years of age, he ministered at Blackfriars Church, London for 45 years. In addition to his great success as a pastor, his mid-week expository lectures at Blackfriars drew increasingly larger crowds. Spirituality and scholarship made his career at Cambridge, his pastoral work and his writings unique. He was renowned as "the father of the London Divines and the oracle of his time." In 1643 he was made a member of the Westminster Assembly of Divines by vote of Parliament. His primary works include his Commentary on Hebrews, The Whole Armour of God, and Domestic Duties.

"We greatly prize Gouge. Upon any topic which he touches he gives outlines which may supply sermons for months." -C.H. Spurgeon

"There can be no doubt whatsoever that the crowning commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews, as far as preachers are concerned, is the great classic, 'Gouge on the Epistle to the Hebrews,' from the pen of Dr. William Gouge. The exegetical value of this commentary is enormous: every vital word in Hebrews is explained in a manner far superior to that which suffices for modern word studies. The expository value of the commentary is equally rich: every doctrine, theme and argument which is found in the Epistle being given its own heading and section. May the Lord greatly bless this magnificent help to many preachers of the Word in these needy times." - Dr. Peter Masters

"We are so grateful to Solid Ground Christian Books for reprinting Gouge's magnum opus, A Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews. This massive book, originally published in three volumes, contains the notes of more than a thousand sermons given over a thirty year period at Blackfriars. The first volume was published in 1655; Gouge was still working on the last half of the last chapter of Hebrews when he died. His son, Thomas, completed it, using his fatherĘs notes. It is a golden exposition of the fullness of Christ." - Dr. Joel Beeke

This is an unabridged reprint taken from the 1866 edition. It will be in two large Hardcover or Paperback volumes. Volume One covers Hebrews 1-7, and Volume Two covers Hebrews 8-13. Over 1120 pages of Puritan exposition and application, with a 20 page topical index added.

TRAPP'S CLASSIC COMMENTARY ON THE NEW TESTAMENT
John Trapp

In his opening lecture to "Commenting & Commentaries" Charles Haddon Spurgeon wrote the following about this set of Commentaries:

"Would it be possible to eulogise too much the incomparably sententious and suggestive folios of JOHN TRAPP? Trapp will be most valuable to men of discernment, to thoughtful men, to men who only want a start in a line of thought, and are then able to run alone. Trapp excels in witty stories on the one hand, and learned allusions on the other. You will not thoroughly enjoy him unless you can turn to the original, and yet a mere dunce at classics will prize him. His writings remind me of himself: he was a pastor, hence his holy practical remarks; he was the head of a public school, and everywhere we see his profound scholarship; he was for some time amid the guns and drums of a parliamentary garrison, and he gossips and tells queer anecdotes like a man used to a soldier's life; yet withal, he comments as if he had been nothing else but a commentator all his days. Trapp is my especial companion and treasure; I can read him when I am too weary for anything else. Trapp is salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, and all the other condiments. Put him on the table when you study, and when you have your dish ready, use him by way of spicing the whole thing. Yes, gentlemen, read Trapp certainly, and if you catch the infection of his consecrated humour, so much the better for your hearers."

"John Trapp's (1601-1669) New Testament commentary is an old Puritan classic, often reprinted, and packed with colorful paraphrases and captivating illustrations. It is soundly Reformed and always worth consulting in conjunction with other commentaries." - Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Refomred Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

LECTURES UPON THE BOOK OF ESTHER
Thomas M'Crie

"M'Crie was an outstanding Scottish theologican and historical writer. Such a commentary from a writer of that calibre can only be a blessing to all who get it." - Maurice Roberts

"Best known for his biography on John Knox and ever the consummate church historian, Thomas M'Crie (1772-1835), shows in his lectures on Esther that he is an astute biblical historian as well. These eighteen messages are packed with solid exegetical and practical material. Highly recommended for both the minister and the educated layman, this reliable guide to Esther remains unsurpassed until today."- Joel R. Beeke

CH Spurgeon, in his 'Commenting and Commentaries" ranks M'Crie on Esther with his very highest approval and then quotes as follows: "Dr. Davidson says of Dr. McCrie: 'There is an ancient fable.of a king who was gifted with the power of turning everything he touched into gold; and this eminent divine and historian possessed remarkably the gift of rendering every subject he handled so precious, as at least to discourage any one from attempting to follow in his track. In his Lectures upon the book of Esther, he has certainly left little for any to say who may come after him."

THOMAS M'CRIE (1772-1835) is best known for his classic LIFE OF JOHN KNOX as well as his two-volume LIFE OF MELVILLE. He was also highly acclaimed for his works on SCOTTISH HISTORY and THE REFORMATION IN SPAIN & ITALY. But above all he was a gifted preacher of the Gospel whose LECTURES UPON THE BOOK OF ESTHER was published in 1838, three years after his death. It is considered by many to be the best commentary ever written upon this book of Holy Scripture.

AN EXPOSITION UPON THE EPISTLE OF JUDE
William Jenkyn

Spurgeon said of this classic Puritan commentary: "A TREASURE-HOUSE OF GOOD THINGS."

Thomas Manton first gave up the idea of printing his work on Jude when he read this masterpiece by William Jenkyn, but later changed his mind when urged by friends. Yet he tell us, "I consulted with my reverend brother's book, and when I found at any point at large discussed by him, I either omitted it or mentioned it very briefly; so that his labours will be necessary to supply the weakness of mine."

Cyril Barber said, "William Jenkyn was a diligent student of the Word, an able expositor, and known throughout England for his piety. We welcome the republication of this outstanding commentary. It is a tribute to the foresight of the publishers that they are making it available to a new generation of Bible students and teachers."

Joel Beeke has added, "Jenkyn's Exposition of the Epistle of Jude remains unsurpassed today. It powerfully exhibits Jenkyn's piety and learning."

Malcolm Watts said, "The Exposition upon Jude by Jenkyn is beyond praise. In my opinion it ranks as one of the best in the old Nichols series."

Rev. James Sherman, editor of the 1863 edition, wrote the following: "The following Exposition is the most considerable of Jenkyn's works, and exhibits his piety, diligence and learning. It was delivered at Christ Church, Newgate Street, in the ordinary course of his ministry, and met with great acceptance; two editions having been published during the life of the author, both of which have been carefully collated for the present publication. The editor believes that, from the great pains taken to render the work perfect, few errors have escaped detection. He now commits it to the favor of God, who, judging from the testimonies received from many ministers, has crowned the Exposition previously published with a large share of his blessing."

Notes, Critical and Explanatory on the Acts of the Apostles
Melancthon W. Jacobus

Melancthon W. Jacobus (1816-1876) wrote this outstanding work on the Acts of the Apostles in 1859. In his own words (taken from the Preface) "As the only Inspired Histrory of the New Testament Church is here given, it becomes most deeply interesting and useful to Christians of all time to mark the great principles here illustrated; to observe the true nature of Christ's Kingdom, as here set forth, and to note the true Idea of the Church, and the laws of its progress. The important use of this Book to the Church in all time cannot be over-rated."

Charles Hodge, William Henry Green, J.W. Alexander and others from Princeton Seminary said, "The excellent Commentaries of Dr. Melancthon Jacobus have deservedly attained a high reputation, and their wide circulation proves how well they are adapted to the wants of both ministers and laymen. They present, in a brief compass, the results of extensive erudition, abound in judicious exposition and pertinent illustration, and are, moreover, distinguished by doctrinal soundness, evangelical character, and an eminently devout spirtit."

"Jacobus is sound and plain, and is therefore a safe guide to Sunday-School teachers and others who need to see the results of learning without the display of it." - C.H. Spurgeon

"This work is characterized by solid learning, sound doctrine, and lucid statements, a pleasant style, and the most serious spirit of piety. It is much needed." William S. Plumer

"I consider that I would be doing service to the cause of pure religion, scriptural theology, and saving piety, could I contribute to the introduction of Professor Jacobus' Notes into the families, Sabbath Schools, and Bible Classes of our land." - Thomas Smyth

"Jacobus writes in the popular style of Albert Barnes, and is solidly Reformed. Some commentators make you plow an acre to find a single nugget; but not Jacobus. His exegetical notes are concise but meaty, with rich veins of practical exposition." -Dr. Robert P. Martin

While Jacobus' Notes on the Gospels was reprinted 30 years ago this volume has been buried for more than 100 years. It is high time the modern church was confronted again with the messaged of Acts. There is no better place to go than this work to help uncover the meaning and application of this Inspired Volume.

A PATHWAY INTO THE PSALTER:
The Psalms: Their History, Teachings and Use
William Binnie

"A highly valuable work. It is not an exposition, but can readily be used as such, for it possesses a good index to the passages treated of. Dr. Binnie reviews with great skill and intense devotion the various sacred poems contained in the Book of Psalms, and gives the general run and character of each one. His work is unlike any other, and supplies a great desideratum." - C.H. Spurgeon, from 'Commenting & Commentaries'

"In the early part of the twenty-first century, we are inundated with works on the Psalms, both for an academic, and for a popular, audience. In addition, reprints of some of the old classics on the Psalms, such as Spurgeon's 'Treasury of David' are readily available. However, there is one nineteenth century work on the Psalms that is of great value to the preacher that has apparently not been reprinted since the late nineteenth century, the book noted above. It is, as the subtitle suggests, divided into three sections. The first deals with the historical development of the book, from the time of Moses (Psalm 90) down to the post-exilic period. The second section deals with the teachings, or as we would more likely say today the theology, of the Psalms. This includes very helpful treatments of the various ways in which the Messiah is set forth in the Psalms, as well as personal and social religion in the Psalms. In addition, Binnie treats the issue of the imprecatory Psalms in a useful manner. The final section traces the history of the use of the Psalms in both the Jewish and the Christian church." - Dr. Ben Shaw, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

THE PSALMS IN HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY
John Ker (1819-1886)

This little book in not a commentary on the Psalms, yet it is illustrative of their meaning and application to the human heart in all its experiences. By various incidents gathered from history and biography, the author shows what he terms the 'intense humanity' of the Psalms; how they have pervaded human life, and asserted their power to comfort the soul in all times of tribulation, and give wisdom to all who look for divine guidance; thus making for themselves a new record in the experience of Christian men and women, who have found in them the humblest expressions of penitence and the highest notes of praise which the human soul can utter. Every pastor will find this little volume helpful in the application of the Psalms to the devotional and practical duties of the Christian life.

"Dr. John Ker has left in this small volume a precious legacy to the Church. The whole is a book that the Bible student will prize as an indispensable companion to any or all of his commentaries on the Book of Psalms." - Kelso Chronicle

"A commentary on a new, striking, and marvelously interesting plan. The student, with this work in his hand, will find the Psalms a new book, and will receive a start on a new line of inquiry. The Introduction is in Dr. Ker's best style. We wish for it a very wide and long career of usefulness." - United Presbyterian Magazine

"This little book will be received with profound gratitude, and take its place among the most valued possessions of the Church. The Introduction, dealing with the biographical interest of the Psalms, their connection with Christ, and their influence on Christendom, is full of luminous thought and subtle penetration. No devout Christian should be without a copy of this choice and invaluable book." - The Baptist Magazine.

"This is a volume which is a fitting memorial to this poet preacher, who has just passed within the veil. The Introduction to this book is in itself a thing of beauty. Every page, and indeed every turn and expression, gleams and sparkles." - Dundee Advertiser

"We are thankful for this valuable and inspiring volume. It is a treasure and a treasury, containing, as it does, many incidents from history and biography which show the value of the Psalms to the soul of man, in the hours especially of its deepest sorrows or joys. We commend this work to our readers as one which is suited for the quiet home, and which will both strengthen their faith and brighten their hope. This volume will be welcomed by many, as at once full of instruction, reverence, insight, and spiritual stimulus, and as from the pen of one of the gifted sons of God." - Evangelical Repository

John Ker (1819-1886) minister and professor, was horn in Peeblesshire, brought up in Edinburgh; studied there and in Halle, was chosen to fill the chair of Practical Training in the U.P. Theological College in 1876.

SABBATH SCRIPTURE READINGS FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT
Spiritual Meditations from Genesis 1 - 2 Kings 11
Thomas Chalmers

Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847) was considered by many the greatest Scots preacher of his day. This volume contains over 500 pages of personal musings upon every chapter from Genesis - 2 Kings 11. Sadly, Chalmers died before he completed the Old Testament.

From October 1841 - May 1847 Chalmers compiled these "Sabbath Readings" as he systematically worked through every chapter in the New Testament and Genesis 1 - 2 Kings 11. Like Augustine's "Confessions", these meditations are primarily written in the form and language of prayer. Here is Chalmers at his very best!

JEREMIAH: A Parable of Jesus
Douglas D. Webster

The Gospel according to Jeremiah provides some of the best statements of hope and promise in all the Bible. Beyond his costly obedience and faithful endurance, Jeremiah expressed the gospel message of hope. He was the prophet of God's gracious promise: "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." He would be disappointed to be remembered only for his messages of judgment and lamentation, because he saw himself as the prophet of the Lord's new covenant.

Long before the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, Jeremiah embodied the Gethsemane mind-set, took up his cross daily and lived in the power of the resurrection. In his hard-hitting prophetic message, the hope of the Gospel prevailed. Jeremiah's life was a parable of Jesus pointing forward to "The Lord Our Righteousness." Jeremiah didn't sermonize, he embodied the word of the Lord in his life and character. He was not the Incarnate One, but he lived an incarnational life.

"'JEREMIAH: A Parable of Jesus' is brimming with exegetical sensitivity and pastoral insight. Lacking the sterile detachment of much contemporary literature, Webster's engagement with Jeremiah has within it a palpable urgency that is similar to the prophetic book itself. What Jeremiah says, what Jeremiah complains about, what Jeremiah is passionate about, all of these questions matter in this exposition. For Webster the exegesis of Jeremiah is not merely an exercise in historical excavation. Jeremiah's prophetic word is alive. Because of this canonical commitment, Webster masterfully pushes beyond a mere description of the text to its subject matter and significance. This is theological and pastoral exegesis that is sure to cahllenge its readers and stimulate a love for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the transformative power it contains." - Mark Gignilliat, auther of 'Karl Barth and the Fifth Gospel: Barth's Theological Exegesis of Isaiah,' Assistant Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School
