A Treatise on Self-Knowledge

A Treatise on Self-KnowledgeA Treatise on Self-Knowledge by John Mason.

John Mason states: “Self-Knowledge is the subject of this Treatise; a subject which, the more we think of it, the more important and extensive it appears: so important, indeed, that every branch of it seems absolutely necessary to the right government of the life and temper.” This concept is woven into of many spiritual pursuits like relationships, knowing and using talents, knowing weaknesses, confessing pride, temptations to avoid, thinking on the excellent, examining yourselves, proving your own work, and dealing with peaceful prosperity and adverse provocation. “Self-Knowledge,” John Mason’s most notable work, inspires thinking on this often disregarded subject. This edition contains the quotations and the study questions that were found in some earlier editions.

Complete Title: A Treatise on Self-Knowledge Showing the Nature and Benefit of that Important Science, and the Way to Attain It: Intermixed with Various Reflections and Observations on Human Nature.

A Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of Spirit

A Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of SpiritA Discourse on Meekness and Quietness of Spirit by Matthew Henry.

Matthew Henry defines practical meekness and shows how valuable it is. He explains Bible verses related to meekness and how Biblical characters exhibited meekness. Meekness “is one of the members of the new man, which we must put on. Put it on as armor, to keep provocations from the heart, and so to defend the vitals.” Also “If there be any vindication or avenging necessary, (which infinite Wisdom is the best judge of) he can do it better than we can; therefore “give place unto wrath,” that is, to the judgment of God, which is according to truth and equity; make room for him to take the seat, and do not you step in before him.” The text was relatively updated by the American Tract Society.

Memoir of Rev. Samuel Kilpin

Memoir of Rev. Samuel KilpinMemoir of Rev. Samuel Kilpin by American Tract Society and Samuel Kilpin.

Samuel Kilpin (1774–1830) was born in Bedford, England. He was a Baptist pastor who had a burning desire to be used by God and to preach the Gospel to lost souls. He especially loved children and orphans. His efforts were a blessing to so many that he had to use the rooms of his house for teaching. His life was exemplary: “He had a list of names, personal friends and their families, whom he presented daily to his God . . . none were erased until they had left this world for a better.” Also, “We enjoy no more than we are thankful for . . . but not one is enjoyed except our eyes see the Giver, and our lips acknowledge His goodness.” His earnest desire was not to be accounted a great man, but a useful man. This literally was his wish, and it was granted.

How to See Jesus with Fullness of Joy and Peace

How to See Jesus with Fullness of Joy and PeaceHow to See Jesus with Fullness of Joy and Peace by James W. Kimball.

Seeing Jesus is about knowing the living Jesus as a person and as a friend, not just confession of faith and assentation to truth. James Kimball speaks to his audience as a letter to a friend, so everyday people in everyday circumstances can relate to his scriptural advice. “This, then, is a heart offering ‘from the heart to the heart’ of those who are waiting for the promised manifestation of the Lord Jesus.” “Loving Jesus, and trying in all things to promote His interests and wishes must inevitably result in the consciousness of His nearness and love.” “To love Jesus with all the heart, soul, mind, and strength is to see Him. As is our love so must be the vision.”

The Way of Life

The Way of LifeThe Way of Life by Charles Hodge.

Charles Hodge taught “that holiness is the fruit of truth. Christians regard the word of God as the only infallible teacher of those truths which relate to the salvation of men. But are the Scriptures really a revelation from God? What doctrines do they teach?” The book will “give a plain answer to these questions, and be suitable to place in the hands of intelligent and educated young persons, either to arouse their attention, or to guide their steps in the way of life.”

Hymns and Poems

Hymns and PoemsHymns and Poems by A.L.O.E (Charlotte Maria Tucker)

ALOE wrote hymns for specific groups of people, specific occupations, and some longer poems on spiritual subjects. From the preface: “To admit rhymes for ragged children, needlewomen, and paupers into a book of sacred song, may—in the opinion of some critics—deprive it of all claim to the name of poetry. Yet I venture to hope that those who love to labor in God’s vineyard, will not be sorry to bear to their poorer brethren verses intended to meet their peculiar trials, and cheer them under their peculiar sorrows; while the subjects of many of the hymns are such as are of equal interest to the prince as to the peasant.” These hymns are written as poetry.

[for] our happiness and usefulness.” Her advice includes: “If one can but take whatever comes as part of God’s plan, and not as the happening of a blind chance, one will be surer of content. A plan of God in every life, and life joyfully lived in accordance with God’s plan, is a good formula for true happiness.” Also: “One of the most successful recipes for curing the blues, no matter what the source, is to engage actively in some work outside one’s self.”
