7 TITLES FROM TENTMAKER PUBLICATIONS IN THE UK (Many Are The Final Copies Available)
Breckinridge, Coleman, Hamilton, Goodwin

THE FOLLOWING TITLES ARE NOW AVAILABLE FROM TENTMAKER PUBLICATIONS

(1) THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD OBJECTIVELY & SUBJECTIVELY CONSIDERED by Robert J. Breckinridge (Two Volume Set)

“Dr. Breckinridge’s book will take its place by the side of the works of the greatest masters, and none will feel that they are dishonored by the company of the newcomer. It has peculiar merits. It is strictly an original work—the product of the author’s own thoughts, the offspring of his own mind. He has studied and digested much form the labors of others, but has borrowed nothing…. The plan, too, adapts it to general use. The humblest Christian can read it with almost as much profit as the minister. It is pure, unmixed Gospel, presented in a form at once suited to edify and instruct…. The author’s soul is always on fire. He knows God only to love Him, and he seems to feel that he has taught nothing until he has kindled the same flame in the minds of his pupils.” Review of the first part by James Henley Thornwell

Breckinridge’s Scotch-Irish ancestry in America shows a history of political, military and ecclesiastical service from the earliest decades of the eighteenth century. His father served as Senator and then Attorney General under Jefferson prior to his premature death when Robert was just six years old. Robert himself entered public service in the House of the Kentucky Legislature in 1825. Following personal difficulties that led to his conversion he continued his political career, though using his position to argue for issues based on his Christian commitment. His particular concerns were the wrongfulness of enslaving Africans and the transportation of mail on the Sabbath.



(2) TWO-THOUSAND CONFESSORS OF 1662 by Thomas Coleman

This is rare volume was originally published in 1860. The author reviews the events, details the principles upon which the ministers acted, the oppressive measures under which they suffered, and the influence they have had on succeeding times. The book is complete with biographical sketches and facts and anecdotes characteristic of the times in which they lived. It is an eminently accessible introduction to this vital period in English church history.



(3) MOSES THE MAN OF GOD by James Hamilton (VOLUME 5 OF HAMILTON'S WORKS)

James Hamilton was born at Paisley in 1814. Having studied at universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, he became assistant to Robert Candlish at St. George’s, Edinburgh, in 1838. In 1839 he took charge of the parish of Abernyte in 1839, and early in 1841 removed to Roxburgh Church, Edinburgh. In July, 1841, he became pastor of the National Scotch Church, Regent Square, London, and remained pastor of this congregation till his death in 1867. In 1849 he became editor of the Presbyterian Messenger, and in 1864 editor of Evangelical Christendom, the organ of the Evangelical Alliance. He was an incessant literary worker and the author of some of the most widely circulated books of his day.

Volume V - MOSES THE MAN OF GOD

(4) A BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT by John Goodwin (Nichols Puritan Reprint)

MORE THAN 500 PAGES - HARDCOVER WITH DUST-JACKET

First published in 1670, a classic and rare Puritan work, about which Ralph Venning wrote: “I find an excellent spirit moving on the face and acting in the heart of it, to promote the glory of God, the power of godliness, and consequently the good of men, especially of Christian men.

“The author, it is true, according to his wonted genius, doth often traverse a great deal of ground, and fetcheth some compasses before he come to his designed journey’s end; yet he makes it pleasant too by such variety, and will thereby pay the reader for his paints , and patience in following of him. That this and all good books may be well read and improved, is the hearty wish and prayer of him who is a lover of all Christians, yea, and of all men.” — From the Epistle Dedicatory



(5) WILLIAM FAREL: TRUE STORIES OF GOD'S SERVANTS by Frances Bevan

William Farel is in many ways the forgotten Reformer, being overshadowed by John Calvin with whom he worked closely. Yet, were it not for the courageous witness of Farel there may never have been a church at Geneva for Calvin to pastor. If Calvin is the model of the pastor-preacher, then Farel is that of the evangelist. He preached in a time when it was costly to be faithful to the Gospel and he saw a number of his companions cruelly tortured and put to death in the most agonising of ways. Often forsaken and sometimes betrayed, imprisoned and constantly opposed, Farel faced hatred and enmity, contempt and reproach, but remained steadfast. His witness at Neuchâtel, Geneva, Lausanne and Berne saw the gospel light established where previously darkness had gone unchallenged.

Bevan draws upon the Life and Times of John Calvin by Merle D’Aubigné but refers to many other sources as well to verify the account, especially of Farel’s early life. The result is an exciting and deeply challenging book. This new edition has been completely re-typeset and includes the original engravings.



(6) MAMMON: or Covetousness the Sin of the Christian Church by John Harris (1802-1856)

John Harris, principal of New College, London, eldest son of a tailor and draper, was born at Ugborough, Devonshire, 8 March 1802. He was of a studious disposition, and acquired the name of ‘Little Parson Harris.’ About 1815 his parents removed to Bristol, when, although employed during working hours in his father’s shop, he gave much of his nights to study and self-improvement. Soon he began to preach in villages around the city in connection with the Bristol Itinerant Society. The little chapels were always crowded to hear him. He was called the ‘boy preacher,’ and was highly popular with his auditors.

in 1835, he won a prize of a hundred guineas offered by Dr. John Trickey Conquest for the best essay on the sin of covetousness. His essay, originally published in 1836, was entitled Mammon, or Covetousness the Sin of the Christian Church, and more than a hundred thousand copies were sold. Its plain speaking offended some theologians,



(7) THE OXFORD METHODISTS by Rev. Luke Tyerman

“The present book is intended to serve as a companion volume to The Life and Times of Wesley; and to assist in showing the wide and gracious results of a revival of religion.

“Among the Oxford Methodists, the Wesleys and Whitefield will always be pre-eminent; but a great work was also done by their associates. Clayton’s High-Churchism was objectionable; but it is not unreasonable to indulge the hope, that, his earnest piety exercised a useful influence upon the clergy among whom he lived, and especially upon the young gentlemen who were favoured with the instructions of his school. Ingham, as an evangelist, was exceedingly successful among the masses in the North. The Moravian Church owes a debt of incalculable gratitude to Gambold, for checking and correcting its early religions follies. Broughton was efficiently employed in promoting the translation of the Bible, in the work of Home and Foreign Missions, in the distribution of religious tracts, and in the education of the children of the poor, at a period when the present principal societies for such objects did not exist. Hutchins, though retaining, at least, a few of his High-Church doctrines, was a spiritually-minded, earnest Christian; and, in the important office which, for so many years, he held in Lincoln College, could hardly fail in moulding the minds and hearts of some of the young students there. And Hervey was one of the first clergymen of the Church of England, in the last century; who turned the attention of the upper classes of society to religions matters. These were, not trifling services.” —from the Preface.

BUNYAN CHARACTERS IN PILGRIM'S PROGRESS: First and Second Series
ALEXANDER WHYTE (1836-1921)

WE JUST ACQUIRED ALL THE REMAINING COPIES OF THIS BEAUTIFUL HARDCOVER VOLUME!!



"THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND SUGGESTIVE COMMENTARY ON 'THE PILGRIM'S PROGESS' EVER WRITTEN." -The British Weekly

"No higher praise perhaps could be accorded them than to say that they offer such a commentary on Bunyan's parable as Bunyan himself would have delighted to read." - The Guardian

"For strong, manly, reverent, and bracing exposition of spiritual life and conflict, it would be hard to beat these rambles through the Bunyan portrait gallery." -The Christian



“It has been said that one of the greatest lacks in preaching today is imagination. If that be so then Alexander Whyte comes to the rescue. Often his vivid imagination goes beyond Scripture, but the value of his contribution in this field is not to be missed. Whyte excels with Bunyan’s Characters. Each one seems tailor-made to suit his particular gift. It is evident that he loves Bunyan, and his own ability to illustrate so graphically is heart-warming and mind-exercising. God’s people cannot but be helped in their own pilgrim journey as they go hand in hand with Whyte through these characters. The whole tenor of the book is to lead us to godliness. The challenge of seeing our hearts as they really are is on every page, and for a ‘readable sanctification’ it hardly has a rival. One of its great values is that it is different. So many good books say the same thing as other good books. It is not so with this volume. Those coming to it for the first time will be blessed with the remarkable freshness. I have read the old three-volume set time and again and God has used it to the good of my soul every time I have picked it up. The publishers deserve our sincere thanks for seeing the need for this book. By making it available to another generation of Christians they have served us well. May the book set forth the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ in the hearts of his dear people.” —Alun T. McNabb

JOHN HUTCHISON, RALPH WARDLAW, JAMES MORGAN, HENRY AIRAY, THOMAS CARTWRIGHT, RICHARD STOCK, THOMAS FULLER, JOHN KING

(1) LECTURES ON THE EPISTLE OF PAUL TO THE PHILIPPIANS by John Hutchison

“This expositional commentary traces with care the unfolding of Paul’s thought and applies the principles that are laid bare to the needs of believers. Hutchison deals deftly with the Apostle’s varying moods and shows how these provide a pattern for the Christian’s own growth. This is an excellent volume, perspicuous and practical.”— Cyril J. Barber, The Minister’s Library.

“The author depicts Paul in all of his lovely character, which is greatly enhanced by the apostle’s humility as seen in chapter 3. As nearly all will agree, however, the most precious section of this epistle appears in the second chapter where the reader is urged to avoid ‘esteeming himself as surpassing others, but rather to esteem others above self ’ (2:3). Then it is that he pens one of the most sublime sections of the Holy Scriptures as he sets forth the Lord Jesus Christ as the ultimate example, ‘For think this within you which also was in Christ Jesus, who in the form of God subsisting, not thought it robbery to be equal with God,’ etc. (2:5, 6). Hutchinson’s exposition of this section is worth the price of the book.”—Jay Green.

Rev. Dr. John Hutchison came to Renfrew from Renfield Street Church, Glasgow. He was ordained and inducted to Renfrew United Presbyterian Church on 16th February 1864. His scholarly achievements were widely known, and in 1874 he received the Degree of Doctor of Divinity from Glasgow University. In 1877 he was translated to the newly formed congregation of Bonnington, Leith, where he ministered till his death on 1st March 1901, the last six years of his ministry at Bonnington being as Senior Minister.

Dr. Hutchison published in 1884, Expository Lectures on the First and Second Epistles of Thessalonians, followed in 1887 by this corresponding volume on Philippians, and later by Messages to the Seven Churches in Asia.



(2) LECTURES ON THE EPISTLE OF JAMES by Ralph Wardlaw

'The lectures are noteworthy specimens of expository preaching. They were Wardlaw’s last work, and are fully up to the mark.' — C H Spurgeon who gives them top rating in his Commenting and Commentaries.

This previously extremely rare volume contains 26 lectures.



(3) LECTURES ON THE PROPHECIES OF ZECHARIAH by Ralph Wardlaw

“It is the ambition of some to be specially distinguished as ‘students of prophecy.’ To such a distinction my revered father made no claim. But as a student of God’s Word the prophetic page was not neglected by him. He found there a field of pleasant and profit able research; and sought to throw light upon it, and unfold its treasures for the benefit of others.

“Of this he has left abundant evidence, not only in these Lectures on Zechariah, but in numerous other lectures, on most if not all the prophetic books of the Old Testament; and in a complete series of expository discourses on the Apocalypse. And of his mode of handling prophetic questions, lie presented to the Public a specimen or two during his life-time;—one, a Discourse on ‘The Purposes of divine Mercy to the Seed of Abraham;’ the other, a Discourse on ‘The Millennium.’

“These Lectures have been selected, because among the Author’s latest productions—having been composed and delivered when he was in his seventy-second year; because the portion of Scripture which they seek to elucidate, while possessing many points of great interest, is apt to be overlooked; and because it introduces greater variety into the character of these posthumous volumes, and shows the Author’s facility in giving to every theme a practical hearing.” — From the Preface

“Written in the Doctor’s old age; but we prefer it, in some respects, to other volumes of his lectures. We always consult it.” -C.H. Spurgeon



(4) AN EXPOSITION OF THE FIRST EPISTLE OF JOHN by James Morgan

THIS VOLUME CONSISTS OF 52 LECTURES COVERING 528 PAGES OF BRILLIANT EXPOSITION

James Morgan was the minister of the influential Fisherwick Place Presbyterian Church in the heart of Belfast, Northern Ireland in the mid-19th century. He presented these lectures to his congregation after 37 years of ministry among them.

In the Preface he says:

“I would have you not merely to understand what brotherly love is, but to examine whether you possess it, and live in the exercise of it, and have this evidence of your true discipleship. Can you conclude that you are the children of God, seeing you are constrained by the love He bears to you to love all them that are members of His family?

“This practical and personal application of the truth that is taught is a distinguishing feature of the First Epistle of John. It is, indeed, a feature of all the Scriptures, manifesting their sincerity, and truth, and earnestness. It is very pointed in the writings of the Apostle Paul, who is ever illustrating his subject by his own personal history. But in John it is carried to perfection, especially in this epistle. He seems to take his reader by the hand, and to discuss with him, not the truth merely, but his personal interest in it; not only the subject of brotherly love, but the reader’s possession of it, and the evidence thus furnished to him, and enjoyed by him, that he is himself a child of God. Thus, it is, beloved brethren, I present this subject to your attention, and ask your acceptance of my volume as a token of my love, and a memorial of my ministry. Undesignedly, the exposition is completed in fifty-two Lectures, so that by the reading of one every Sabbath, the Volume will furnish a lesson for every Sabbath in the year.”

“…of great practical interest and value”—Dr. Candlish

“We are glad to possess it”—C H Spurgeon



(5) Henry Airay on PHILIPPIANS and Thomas Cartwright on COLOSSIANS

THIS VOLUME IS PART OF THE FAMOUS NICHOL'S SERIES OF COMMENTARIES OF THE 19TH CENTURY

Airay on Philippians: Mr. Grosart says:

“You will look in vain in this commentary for erudite criticism or subtle exegesis in the modern sense: but there seems to us to be an instructively true following of the Apostolic thoughts, and a quick insight into their bearings and relative force.” (Quoted by Spurgeon)

Cartwright on Colossians:

“This is but a small affair, consisting of scanty and second-rate notes by a hearer. Yet what there is of it has a true ring, and is rich in spirituality.” —Spurgeon



(6) Richard Stock & Samuel Torshell on MALACHI and Richard Bernard & Thomas Fuller on RUTH

THIS VOLUME IS PART OF THE FAMOUS NICHOL'S SERIES OF COMMENTARIES OF THE 19TH CENTURY

Ruth by Bernard & Fuller

Contains a stock of knowledge, and more than a sufficient stock of quotations from the fathers. Torshell printed the book fifteen years after Stock’s death, and finding it to be written for a popular audience only, he added an examination of the original and a few notes in a more learned style, to make a complete commentary. The two authors have thus composed the work on Malachi. —C H Spurgeon

Fuller’s commentary on Ruth:

'…quaint and pithy, and lit up with flashes of irrepressible wit.' —C H Spurgeon



(7) John King on JONAH and John Rainolds on OBADIAH & HAGGAI

THIS VOLUME IS PART OF THE FAMOUS NICHOL'S SERIES OF COMMENTARIES OF THE 19TH CENTURY

'Quaint and rich, with a little occasional quiet mirth. It was the book of its time. Some will think it out of date, others will, like Grosart, prize the work of ‘the Bishop with royal name.’ —C H Spurgeon

'The Lectures of Bishop King on Jonah present a combination of expository ability and pulpit power—specially in the element of uncompromising rebuke—which renders them a masterpiece and a model which modern preachers would do well to study.' — John C Miller in his preface to The Works of Thomas Goodwin

CONFESSIONS OF A FUNDAMENTALIST
AARON DUNLOP

THIS BOOK WAS NEVER INTENDED TO BE A BOOK, BUT THE VERY PEOPLE THE AUTHOR WROTE ABOUT WANTED HIM TO PUBLISH IT. LISTEN TO THE MAN WHO WROTE THE FOREWORD, KEVIN BAUDER -

"The following small book began as a series of essays about fundamentalism on Aaron's blog. These essays were my first introduction to Aaron. Aaron didn't set out to write a book. Friends from outside of the United States encouraged him to expand his original articles and to put them into print. He has been hesitant, and at one point even offered to bury the project if I advised him to. That I refuse to do. Why? Among other reasons, because Aaron is doing fundamentalism a service by publishing this book. We will be stronger with it than without it."

The author sums up the contents of the book in his Introduction -

"The book is divided into nine chapters and an appendix. Chapter one deals with the history of the movement and its evident purpose and success in preserving the truth. Chapter two is an appreciation of the 'conviction and courage' that was evident among fundamentalists.á In chapters three to seven I wrestle with some of the problems of the movement, including, shallow evangelism and a tendency to legalistic holiness (three); the unrelenting and harsh militancy that developed into infighting and contentions and factions within the movement (four); the indiscriminate separatism (five); and the failure (or inability) to deal with these issues (six).

In chapter seven, I address the 'silent moderate majority' who have sat back and tolerated (perhaps promoted) the excesses. Chapter eight is an analysis of the current situation developing between fundamentalism and conservative evangelicalism - the new conservative evangelical identify. In the last chapter, chapter nine, I present five suggestions for a way forward.

In the appendix I have tried to bring some balance in our understanding of the powerful personalities of fundamentalism. Three men, Ian Paisley (Northern Ireland), Carl McIntire (America) and T. T. Shields (Canada), represent the three countries where the fundamentalist movement existed. They were polarising individuals, either hated or loved. How can we understand these very complex men of God?
