9 TITLES FROM TENTMAKER PUBLICATIONS IN THE UK (Many Are The Final Copies Available)
Breckinridge, Coleman, Whyte, 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) BUNYAN CHARACTERS IN PILGRIM'S PROGRESS by Alexander Whyte

“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

(4) 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

“Beautiful as a poem, like everything’ which fell front Dr. Hamilton’s pen. It would be impossible to study it without profit.” C H Spurgeon

Moses The Man of God

Philosophy and Christianity

(5) IRISH WORTHIES: A Series of Original Biographical Sketches of Eminent Ministers of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland edited by The Rev. Thomas Hamilton

All lovers of Bible Protestantism in general, and orthodox Presbyterianism in particular, will rejoice in the republication of Irish Worthies. Thomas Hamilton followed his father in York Street congregation as its third minister. He was ordained on 20th August 1865. He published a ‘History of the Irish Presbyterian Church’ and other important works. He became the first Vice-Chancellor of Queen’s University, Belfast. This volume contains four contributions from Dr. Hamilton’s pen and ten other sketches by other prominent ministers. Life-sketches of ministers of both the General Synod of Ulster and the Secession Synod are united in this book.

The publication of these sketches will, I believe, stir up both ministers and people to hear and obey the divine precept: ‘This is the way; walk ye in it.’ — From the new Foreword by Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley.

The book is a limited edition, bound in dark blue, with gold blocking on the spine and front.

(6) 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

(7) 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.

(8) 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,

(9) 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.
