Book: The New Calvinists

The New Calvinists

Dr E S Williams

Enmity between the church and the world dates from the Fall of man, so God says in Genesis 3.15. Satan's major strategy is the overthrow of the church by the world, through infiltration and contamination.

But seldom has this battle reached the proportions of this present hour, when worldliness threatens every believer and church.

This book reveals the new 'gospel' of the so-called 'new Calvinism'. It is a gospel that changes the terms of salvation, and that loves the world and embraces its culture.

Here are the objectives of the new Calvinists, taken from their own words.

Book: Christ or Therapy?

Christ or Therapy?

Dr E S Williams

It is not widely realised that there is an irreconcilable difference between the remedies for sadness and grief set out in the Bible, and those put forward by the world of psychotherapy. A gulf also exists between the biblical policy for marriage, and that proposed by secular marriage guidance psychologists. Many well-known evangelical authors and churches, however, have turned entirely to the secular remedies and policies in these matters.

This book shows what the differences are, including a remarkable review of depression in the Bible, and its relief.

Book: The Dark Side of Christian Counselling

The Dark Side of Christian Counselling

Dr E S Williams

It is amazing how rapidly the Christian counselling movement has spread through churches in the UK, teaching that hurts and depressions once considered part of normal life are illnesses to be treated. It implies that for 1900 years the Bible has been insufficient for the woes of God’s people, or for their sanctification, but that now we have the ‘insights’ of anti-Christian psychologists to make good the deficit.

In this book medical doctor Ted Williams challenges these claims, giving the most clear-cut and interesting overview of the counselling movement and of the giants of secular psychology who are pillars of its ‘faith’.

Book: What is Going on in Christian Crisis Pregnancy Counselling?

What is Going on in Christian Crisis Pregnancy Counselling?

Dr E S Williams

We hear of very many expectant mothers seeking abortion advice, including girls under sixteen. Dr Ted Williams, a medical doctor of long experience, and a noted specialist in the public health field, shows that Christian counselling centres have adopted a deeply compromised approach which provides non-judgemental advice that leaves in place the option of abortion.

This book will not only inform and warn, but will focus the aims of pastors and all other Christians when they are called upon to extend help to expectant mothers thinking about abortion.

Reformed Dogmatics

Heinrich Heppe

Truly vital for ministers and lovers of doctrine. This renowned collection of the writings of the key Reformers of the 16th century and the scholarship of the 17th was first issued by Heppe, a German Reformed theologian and historian, in 1861. It was first issued in this English translation by G T Thomson in 1950.

This will give the possessor erudition which would take a lifetime to acquire. 'All the written sources I could lay hands on,' wrote Heppe, 'I have carefully researched and compared, in order to transmit the thought brought to light by the representatives of Reformed orthoxody.'

Book: Israel in Prophecy

Israel in Prophecy

William Hendrikson

For many years now this little book has been gold dust, being both rare and precious. Originally penned in the 1950s it presents the outstanding commentator’s answers to some of the most important questions for Bible students, namely:
Are the ‘restoration of the Jews’ promises being fulfilled today?
Is God finished with the Jews?
What is meant by Israel?
Are the blessings promised to Israel for the Jews or for the Church?
No other book gives the answers so plainly and scripturally as this, for Dr Hendriksen was truly a master of brief and crystal-clear reasoning. He shows that the promises of the Old Testament apply ultimately to the Church, but counsels understanding, appreciation and soul-winning zeal toward the Jews.

Book: The Bible on the Life Hereafter

The Bible on the Life Hereafter

William Hendrikson

The very best short book on the afterlife, Heaven, the Lord’s return, and all related issues. It consists of numerous three or four-page chapters, each answering a common question such as, ‘Shall we know one another in Heaven?’ and, ‘What is the millennium?’ It is ideal also for giving to bereaved Christians.
Included is the most superb explanation of Revelation 20 to be found. This is a ‘model’ in communication from a master of the craft!
[Dr William Hendriksen (1900-1982) served many years as a pastor and semin­ary professor, and is the author of one of the best-known series of NT commentaries.]

Book: William Carey

William Carey

S Pearce Carey

A beautifully produced biography of the ‘father of modern missions’. Pearce Carey’s compelling pages convey the very atmosphere of that extraordinary period of missionary advance. This life of Carey is structured around a series of remarkable events, always unplanned and unexpected, which opened the way to undreamed of achievements. Carey and his colleagues overcame mountainous obstacles to become the most productive church planters and Bible translators of all time. No other work compares with this moving treatment.

Book: Trust and Obey

Trust and Obey

Jay E Adams

This is a truly remarkable little gem adopting a brisk, word-by-word style of comment, and sparkling with fresh and challenging information. Some commentaries make the inspired writer say the same thing over and over again. They do not spot the distinctive pieces of counsel in each verse, or the deeper points.

Book: Probing Heaven

Probing Heaven

John Gilmore

This is certainly our favourite book on Heaven and the afterlife. In a clear and rich manner the author deals with questions ranging from the location and nature of Heaven, the occupation of the saints, and the presence of humour, to the existence of Heaven and issues such as rewards, equality, growth, ownership, memory and recognition. From the pen of a reformed pastor in Cincinnati, this has passed through four best-selling editions. In a compelling manner Dr Gilmore also presents the amillenial case. The author has a relaxed and easy style, and includes very many thought-provoking reflections. A first-rate study, stirring anticipation, and definitely a suggestive book for preachers.

Book: The Visions of Ezekiel

The Visions of Ezekiel

Patrick Fairbairn

Since its issue over 100 years ago, this has been regarded by the evangelical world as a magnificent treatment. The message of Ezekiel is unravelled in marvellously warm, descriptive prose. It is shown that with Christ and the 'Gospel Church' age, the promised blessings of Ezekiel are fulfilled. The explanation of Ezekiel's weeks is still unsurpassed. Indispensable for preachers, but it is so readable it is ideal for devotional use by any believer.

Book: A Help to the Study of the Holy Spirit

A Help to the Study of the Holy Spirit

W E Biederwolf

This brilliant volume does all the biblical spadework for the reader, assembling all the references to the baptism, filling and sealing of the Spirit, and explaining what they mean. It deals also with Holy-Spirit-related terms such as anointing and communion, as well as the emblems of the Spirit, and resisting, grieving or quenching the Spirit. It is for all lovers of the Word, but is a message-preparer’s delight.

Book: Joseph the Prime Minister

Joseph the Prime Minister

William M Taylor

This famous work was expanded from weeknight addresses at the Brooklyn Tabernacle (in the 1880s), by their Scottish pastor. It is presented as a reading book – and a very good one – rather than a commentary, but it is so full of interesting information and application that it constitutes an excellent commentary. In his application the author bears in mind young adults, which is unusual and valuable in such a work.
