COVENANTER minister and author, "Durham had a high reputation for great piety, great prudence and great learning", says the Dictionary of Scottish Church History & Theology. "A very candid and searching preacher, who in an instant was in the inmost corners of your bosoms, though with the utmost caution and meekness, without giving any of his hearers the smallest ground to fret and repine at his freedom in dealing with them." Charles H. Spurgeon, in his Commenting & Commentaries says, "After all that has been written, it would not be easy to find a more sensible and instructive work than this old-fashioned exposition...the mystery of the gospel fills it with sweet savour." John Carstairs comments that the judicious reader "will count the author an interpreter, one among a thousand." Out of print for much too long, this reprint has been re-typeset from the rare and expensive first edition done in 1658. Spelling has been modernized, and it contains an Introduction by Dr. David C. Lachman. Make room on your bookshelf for Durham's Commentary on Revelation! Experience this faithful exposition that makes men wise unto the truth of the Scriptures.

ANOTHER valuable and rare volume of Sermons by John Calvin touching upon subjects so significant to the Christian Church. And yet, says, Dr. Richard A. Muller in his Foreword to the book, "They are significant even among the sermons of Calvin inasmuch as they present what, with little hyperbole, can be called Calvin's final testament to the Reformed teachings of justification by grace alone through faith and of the right relationship between faith and the obedience of Christians." From the English translation out of the original French, by Thomas Stocker in 1592. The Sermons cover chapters in Genesis with serious examination of Abraham, "the Friend of God" first, as to Abraham's courage in rescuing his nephew Lot, second, as to his godliness in paying tithes to Melchizedek, third, as to Abraham's faith in believing God, and lastly, as to his Obedience in offering his son Isaac. The book is complete and unabridged, and is not to be confused with Calvin's commentaries. This work is not a facsimile, but has been edited to reflect contemporary spelling, and bracketed words in italics are inserted following some antiquated terms or phrases as a convenience for the modern reader. The brief Scripture sections preceding each sermon have been stylishly typeset to approximate their original appearance. This was done for two reasons: to maintain an accurate reproduction of the English text translated from Calvin's French translation, and to offer to the reader a taste of the rich and full majesty that so beautifully flows from translations of the Reformation era. This edition contains a Foreword by Dr. Richard A. Muller, P. J. Zondervan Professor of Historical Theology at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI.

Aside from the immediate teaching and awakening convictions of the Holy Spirit, perhaps no event more powerfully impresses the mind with the certainty of an invisible world than the death of friends and family. We can not believe that the minds with which we enjoyed happy communion have become extinct with the dissolution of the body. We have seen the light of intelligence beam from their eye, we have felt their sympathies in our adversities, and we have known that their hearts have rejoiced with us in the various seasons of our prosperity. But we have also witnessed the ravages of disease, fatality from fever, the pinings of desolating consumption, or have observed with anxiety the last, unrelenting grasp of death. Writing in 1838, William Jay of Bath, England, with his kind, tender, and Scripturally affectionate style, cannot fail to sooth the wounded heart. You will see the design and hand of God in afflictions, be consoled in death, comforted in the loss of children, enabled to honor God in trouble, and be given a glimpse of the glorious Christian dwelling in Heaven.

There exists serious objections as to the authenticity of this little known section containing the alleged final dreams of John Bunyan. Nevertheless, "Part Three" of the Dreamer's beloved story can be found in numerous older editions of Pilgrim's Progress. As a successor to Part One concerning Christian and Part Two concerning his wife Christiana, this concluding "Part" is of an 1839 edition from Boston. Amongst the characters of Good-will, Tender-conscience, Elder and Younger-Matron, and Good-resolution, some familiar as well as new personalities will present themselves for the progress of the Pilgrim's journey. If you treasure the allegories of Bunyan, you will discover the wealth of "Part Three" despite the uncertainty of authorship.
