THREE SPRINKLE TITLES: Letters & Sketches from the New Hebrides; God Sovereign & Man Free; and Life & Writings of John Gill
Maggie Patin; N.L. Rice; John Rippon

THREE UNRELATED TITLES FROM SPRINKLE PUBLICATIONS

(1) LETTERS & SKETCHES FROM THE NEW HEBRIDES by Maggie Paton ((wife of John Paton, pioneer missionary of renown))

The story of Dr. John Gibson Paton (1824-1907), Scottish Presbyterian missionary to the South Pacific, is well-known. Paton settled on the island of Aniwa (1866-1881) with his second wife, Margaret (Maggie) Whitecross Paton. By the end of the Patonsí tenure, most of the Aniwan natives were professing Christianity.

Patonís brother James edited his autobiography. James also obtained permission from Maggie Paton to publish the letters contained in this volume that pieces together the moving history of the Patonsí labors over a twenty-five years span (1865-1889)

The letters in this book throb with heartfelt convictions. They provide remarkably realist insights into life on the mission field from the perspective of a God-fearing missionaryís wife who was willing to follow her husbandís call in adverse and life-threatening circumstances.

This book will move you; at times you will weep, at other times, smile. You will be stirred by the challenge of working in an isolated mission situation with only rare connection to the outside world.



(2) GOD SOVEREIGN & MAN FREE; or The Doctrine of Divine Foreordination and Man's Free Agency by N.L. Rice

One reviewer says the following about this outstanding book: "I'm not sure why this book is not more well known, than it is(I've never seen it quoted in other books on the subject and this is the only review on amazon for now).It is truly an outstanding work on Predestination Books that reveal who the God of the Bible is and how he has worked and continues to govern all that he has made, are game changers, and this is that kind of book."



(3) THE LIFE AND WRITINGS OF JOHN GILL by John Rippon

The late Dr. John Gill was, in various respects, so distinguished an individual, whether we have regard to his talents, his industry in improving them, the eminence to which he attained in oriental and classical literature, of his Christian character, that one may be justly be surprised so little is generally know of his life and labors. Were we to have recourse to any of our biographical dictionaries for information on the subject, we should find the article dismissed in about twenty lines, giving us a meager outline of the place of his birth, his family, education, and the various publications with which he enriched the literature of his country, while the most interesting and instructive parts of his biography are wholly unnoticed.

The reason of this is, that the only full and authentic account of this great and learned man, is that which was complied by the late Dr. John Rippon, his successor in the work of the ministry, and prefixed to Dr. Gill's "Exposition of the Bible", in nine volumes, quarto- of course accessible only to those who happen to be in possession of that laborious undertaking, the number of whom must be comparatively few. It is presumed that a re-publication of the former, in a detached form, and at a moderate price, can scarcely fail of meeting with a favorable acceptance at the hands of the religious community, more especially, as tending to bring this great and learned man more prominently before the public, and so doing his character that justice which hitherto it has not received.

This book has been printed verbatim from the above mentioned memoir, which will account for an occasional reference to the Commentary which will be observed in the perusal.
