STUDIES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
Classic Essays to Show the Perpetuity of the Old Testament as a Living Book for All Ages
Austin Phelps, author of 'The Still Hour'

Austin Phelps (1820-1890) was a congregational minister, a professor of sacred rhetoric and homiletics, and later a president of Andover Theological Seminary. He wrote several books which were widely read, but none as much as "The Still Hour." Some of the subjects covered are quite unique, such as "Absence of God, in Prayer", "Unhallowed Prayer", "Distrust in Prayer", "Indolence in Prayer" and "Idolatry in Prayer." This is a book that will both convict and encourage. It is perfect alike for the new believer and the aged saint who has walked with Christ for decades.

"Comforting, convicting, and correcting, Phelps's 'Still Hour' is the best short book a Christian can read to stir up his or her sluggish soul and lay hold of God afresh by means of biblical, heartfelt prayer." --Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

What is said about THE STILL HOUR deserves to be said about STUDIES OF THE OLD TESTAMENT. The opening essay on "The Prophet of the Broken Heart" and the closing chapter on "Christ the Centre of Biblical Thought" are truly worth the price of the book, but all of the other 22 chapters are soul-stirring and heart-warming as well.

In the Author's Introductory Note he explains the reason for publishing this work: "These studies of the Old Testament were originally published in one of our most widely-circulated religious papers. So many persons have expressed a wish for them in a more permanent form, that they are now gathered into this volume. Slight changes have been made, -- a change in the order of topics, an occasional enlargement or alteration of paragraphs, and a few corrections. If the volume serves to illustrate, in any degree, how ancient and neglected Scriptures may be revived in the popular interest, and thus to show the perpetuity of the Old Testament as a living book for all ages, the object of this republication will be accomplished." - Theological Seminary, Andover, Mass. - Oct. 1, 1878.

THE STILL HOUR
Communion with God in Prayer
Austin Phelps

Austin Phelps (1820-1890) was a congregational minister, a professor of sacred rhetoric and homiletics, and later a president of Andover Theological Seminary. He wrote several books which were widely read, but none as much as "The Still Hour." Some of the subjects covered are quite unique, such as "Absence of God, in Prayer", "Unhallowed Prayer", "Distrust in Prayer", "Indolence in Prayer" and "Idolatry in Prayer." This is a book that will both convict and encourage. It is perfect alike for the new believer and the aged saint who has walked with Christ for decades.

"Comforting, convicting, and correcting, Phelps's 'Still Hour' is the best short book a Christian can read to stir up his or her sluggish soul and lay hold of God afresh by means of biblical, heartfelt prayer." --Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Charles H. Spurgeon, in the midst of a sermon on Mark 11:24, said the following: "I was reading the other day in a sweet little book, which I would commend to the attention of all of you, written by an American author, Austin Phelps, who seems to truly and completely know the power of prayer, and to whom I am indebted for many good things. The llittle book is called The Still Hour,"

Don Whitney wrote: "Remember that the great purpose for engaging in these Disciplines is Godliness, that we may be like Jesus, that we may be more holy. In The Still Hour, Austin Phelps wrote, 'It has been said that no great work in literature or in science was ever wrought by a man who did not love solitude. We may lay it down as an elemental principle of religion, that no large growth in holiness was ever gained by one who did not take time to be often long alone with God.'"

THE NEW BIRTH
The Work of the Holy Spirit in True Conversion
Austin Phelps, the author of "The Still Hour"

According to the Author, "The first four chapters of this volume have appeared, substantially, in the 'Bibliotheca Sacra' for the current year. By special arrangement with the publisher of that Quarterly they are now reissued, with one additional chapter. If my brethren in the ministry, Sabbath-school teachers, and other thoughtful Christians, find suggestions in these pages which help them, either in their own Christian culture or in their efforts to win souls to Christ, my chief object in this publication will be gained. I cannot but hope, also, that thinking men who do not own the Christian name will find here the Way of Salvation, commended to them by the same intuitions and calm reasonings by which they are accustomed to judge of truth in other things." - Austin Phelps, Andover Theological Seminary, Nov. 15, 1866.
