• 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.

  • 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.

  • According to Promise

    According to PromiseAccording to Promise: The Lord's Method of Dealing with His Chosen People by Charles H. Spurgeon.

    Spurgeon discusses many aspects of the promises of God. What are the promises of God? Who are the promises for? Where can you find them? Why does God give promises for the future that require faith? "There can be no true believer apart from the promise of grace, and the grace of the promise." Spurgeon discusses how important Jesus is to God's promises, and that God promises salvation and eternal life to all who believe on his Son. "If God does not give to us according to the riches of his grace, we are then worse than naked, and poor, and miserable; we are utterly and altogether undone." This book is a companion volume to "All of Grace."

  • Happiness

    HappinessHappiness: Discourses Delivered at Geneva by Agénor de Gasparin. Translated by Mary L. Booth. Introduction by Rev. Edward N. Kirk.

    Drawing on the beatitudes, the experiments of King Solomon in Ecclesiastes, and many other Scriptures, Count Gasparin formulated how God gives happiness to people. Gasparin states that happiness is a product of redemption only. Holiness is happiness and sin is misery; therefore, true happiness only starts at conversion because of mankind’s total depravity. From there happiness is lived out through obedience, accomplishing God’s work given to us, as well as prayer and dependence.

He is not likely to wander over the line while walking by this rule.” Rev. Cuyler offers “a few counsels for the right keeping of the heart and the right conduct of the Christian life.”

    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.”

  • Life, Warfare, and Victory

    Life, Warfare, and VictoryLife, Warfare, and Victory by Daniel W. Whittle.

    Daniel Whittle, a major in the Civil War, shares his insights into spiritual warfare. He challenges the reader to the trumpet of the Gospel. He begins with realizing the necessity to be born again by the Holy Spirit for warfare to be possible. He explains that Satan is a real person and is deceptive, and to use the Word of God to overcome him. Being dead to sin, he explains, is being dead to God's judgment, in relation to God's Law of sin, but spiritual warfare still exists. A quote from the book: "The Holy Spirit in regeneration is not to change the nature of the flesh at all; but to implant a new nature—Christ formed within by the Holy Spirit, in the power of which the believer does indeed deny the flesh, and is no longer living as minding the flesh. But the flesh is still there, unchangeably evil in its nature, with no improvement to be looked for in it."

  • Practical Thoughts

    Practical ThoughtsPractical Thoughts by William Nevins.

    These forty-six devotional newspaper articles were published in 1834 and 1835. The focus is on practical outward expressions of the Christian faith. Topics covered include prayer, generosity, enjoyment of religion, and heaven.

    The Introduction from the book is as follows: "The following pages consist of miscellaneous articles published by the lamented author within the year 1834, and the months of January and February, 1835, chiefly in the New York  Observer, with the signature 'M. S.,' the finals of his name. They were written after the insidious disease by which God was pleased to transplant him to a higher sphere of labor had so affected his voice as in a great degree to disable him from his stated public ministrations. This discipline was evidently blessed in his rapid sanctification, his obtaining uncommonly clear views of truth and duty, and his ardent desire to do something to rouse Christians to greater attainments in personal holiness, and through their efforts and prayers to bless the world. His mind acted with unwonted vigor; he panted to speak to multitudes for God and eternity, and adopted the only means then remaining to him—his pen. When about two-thirds of the articles were written, he was called suddenly to part with his beloved wife; and the hallowed influence of the affliction is most apparent in the subsequent articles, the last of which, 'Heaven's Attractions,' with the additional fragment, seemed almost prophetic of the event which was soon to follow."
