The Groans of a Damned Soul
Being an Exposition of Luke 16
John Bunyan, edited by Dr. Don Kistler

SIGHS FROM HELL: The Groans of a Damned Soul by John Bunyan

This book is especially timely in light of Rob Bell's recent book release called "Love Wins," in which he denies a literal hell, other than the one we make for ourselves. But over 300 years ago John Bunyan wrote this little work in which he exposits the story in Luke 16 of Dives and Lazarus, and shows biblically that hell is quite literal---at least Jesus thought so!

This book has been slightly updated as to language and grammar. It is hardbound and printed on acid-free paper. While this work of Bunyan's is not as well known as "Pilgrim's Progress," it is very important, particularly for evangelism. This is what sinners need to be saved from!

An exposition of those words in Luke 16 concerning the rich man and the beggar wherein is discovered the lamentable state of the damned: their cries, their desires in their distresses, with the determination of God upon them; a good warning word to sinners, both old and young, to take into consideration quickly, and to see by faith in Jesus Christ to avoid, lest they come into the same place of torment.

Eschatology for Young People
Steve Daniels

"Steve Daniels has written a fine book on the last things for young people. It is easy to read, within reach of teenagers, and (best of all) consistently and profoundly biblical in what it teaches. This book would be a fine basis for all sorts of youth Bible studies, youth group situations, and Sunday School classes. One more thing--many older Christians would profit from its teaching as well."--Dr. Sam Waldron, Author of "The End Times Made Simple"

"This is a good book. Steve Daniels answers perplexing questions in plain language and sheds light on difficult passages of Scripture. This work is fast-paced, aptly illustrated and easy to understand. It is true to Scripture and honoring to Christ. It informs the mind and warms the heart with hope. I highly recommend it." - Roger Ellsworth, Pastor and Author

Jonathan Edwards on Eternal Damnation
Jonathan Edwards, edited by William Nichols

Hell has fallen on hard times in the modern evangelical church. Many pastors and evangelists do not even mention the word hell in their sermons and when they do it is often described only as a place of separation from God. What unconverted person would not greatly desire to be separated from God in eternity? There is great need to return to the evangelism of Jonathan Edwards who unashamedly preached the biblical doctrine of hell.

"The Torments of Hell: Jonathan Edwards on Eternal Damnation" contains 14 sermons by Jonathan Edwards arranged in a sequential order to progressively outline what the Bible teaches about hell. There is commentary on each one of the manuscripts by William C. Nichols comparing and contrasting the modern teaching on hell to Edwards' teaching. Most of the sermons in this book have never been published prior to 2005. The book will be about 320 pages in length, hardcover, with 14 manuscripts by Edwards containing over 18 sermons.

Some Sermons are:

That Wicked Men Are the Children of the Devil

The Wicked Hereafter Will Be Cast Into a Furnace of Fire

That the Bodies of Wicked Men as Well as Their Souls Will Be Punished Forever in Hell

That the Punishment and Misery of Wicked Men in Another World Will Be in Proportion to the Sin that They Are Guilty Of

Wicked Men in Hell Will Remember How Things Were With Them Here in this World

They That Are Gone to Hell Are All of Them in Despair

A Memoir of John Huss, the Bohemian Reformer and Martyr
Translated from the German by Thomas O. Summers with an Introductory Note by J.H. Merle d'Aubigne

John Huss (a.k.a. Jan Hus) is regarded to be one of the earliest known religious thinkers and reformers in the world. A philosopher and a Master at Charles University (Prague), Huss was greatly influenced by the writings and teachings of John Wyclife. He made a number of followers during his time, who came to be known as Hussites. Reformers, in the later years, looked up to Huss for his unswerving commitment in the face of the church's cunning brutality, due to which he had to face extreme consequences. Condemning Huss' uprising, the Church first excommunicated him and then burned him to death, after an unfair trial.

This brief account of his life will serve as a wonderful introduction to the life of this great hero of the faith. Despite incredible cruelty that lasted for many months, even some of his enemies acknowledged his humility and godliness. This book would be very useful to use in Family Worship as the chapters are all brief and to the point.

Famous Church Historian J.H. Merle d'Aubigne said the following about Huss - "John Huss preached in Bohemia a century before Luther preached in Saxony. He seems to have penetrated deeper than his predecessors into the essence of Christian truth. He prayed to Christ for grace to glory only in his cross and the the inestimable humiliation of his sufferings. But his attacks were directed less against the errors of the Romish church than against the scandalous lives of the clergy. Yet he was, if we may be allowed the expression, the John the Baptist of the Reformation. The flames of his pile kindled a fire in the church that cast a brilliant light into the surrounding darkness, and whose glimmerings were not to be so readily extinguished."

The following powerful testimony if found in Foxe's BOOK OF MARTYRS -

"The bishops appointed by the Council [of Constance] stripped him of his priestly garments, degraded him, put a paper mitre on his head, on which was painted devils, with this inscription, 'A ringleader of heretics.' Which when he saw, he said: 'My Lord Jesus Christ, for my sake, did wear a crown of thorns; why should not I then, for His sake, again wear this light crown, be it ever so ignominious? Truly I will do it, and that willingly.' When it was set upon his head, the bishop said: 'Now we commit thy soul unto the devil.' 'But I,' said John Huss, lifting his eyes towards the heaven, 'do commend into Thy hands, O Lord Jesus Christ, my spirit which Thou has redeemed.'

When the chain was put about him at the stake, he said, with a smiling countenance, 'My Lord Jesus Christ was bound with a harder chain than this for my sake, and why then should I be ashamed of this rusty one?'

When the faggots were piled up to his very neck, the duke of Bavaria was so officious as to desire him to abjure. 'No,' said Huss, 'I never preached any doctrine of an evil tendency; and what I taught with my lips I now seal with my blood.' He then said to the executioner, 'You are now going to burn a goose, (Huss signifying 'goose' in the Bohemian language) but in a century you will have a 'swan' which you can neither roast nor boil.' If he were prophetic, he must have meant Martin Luther, who shone about a hundred years after, and who had a swan for his arms.

The flames were now applied to the faggots, when our martyr sung a hymn with so loud and cheerful a voice that he was heard through all the cracklings of the combustibles, and the noise of the multitude. At length his voice was interrupted by the severity of the flames, which soon closed his existence.

Then, with great diligence, gathering the ashes together, they cast them into the river Rhine, that the least remnant of that man should not be left upon the earth, whose memory, notwithstanding, cannot be abolished out of the minds of the godly, neither by fire, neither by water, neither by any kind of torment."
