Thomas Chalmers (1780-1847) was the first Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland’s General Assembly and much, much more.

He dominated the life of the Scottish Church in the mid-19th Century and his influence was felt much further afield, through his visionary thinking, writing and leadership. He was passionate about the proclamation of the gospel to the people of Scotland and...
Thomas Cranmer, one of the Reformation's most famous martyrs, can accurately be described as the architect of the Church of England. His involvement in England's break with the Roman Church was crucial. However, in contrast with other key figures of the Reformation, little has been written about Cranmer in recent years.

Despite the fact that we are all fallen men and women, we so...

“Ulrich Zwingli of Zurich, a great reformer overshadowed by two greater, Luther and Calvin, should be much better known than he is. This well-informed and workmanlike book will surely make him so.”
- J.I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College

“William Boekestein’s ‘bitesize biography’ of Ulrich Zwingli is both very informative and enjoyable. It...
Jason Zuidema has written a thrilling account of William Farel’s life and challenges the classic thinking that a worn-out Farel handed over to Calvin in Geneva. Although Farel was some twenty years older than Calvin, he was an intellectual giant and continued to be a major influence in the Reformation process.

Farel was born in 1489 and in the 1520’s was one of the first French...

Most people encounter William Gadsby through singing the small number of his hymns that are still in general use. In strict Baptist circles, his name continues to be held in high esteem for his work as a preacher, for his hymn book, and as founder of the Gospel Standard magazine.

Although Gadsby is perhaps not so well known as many others of his time, Ian Shaw reveals him to be a...
William Perkins (1558–1602) served as a preacher at St. Andrew the Great, Cambridge, as a teaching fellow at Christ’s College, catechised students at Corpus Christi College on Thursday afternoons, and worked as a spiritual counsellor on Sunday afternoons. In these roles, Perkins influenced a generation of young students, including Richard Sibbes, John Cotton, John Preston and William Ames.

This study is an attempt to look behind the scenes at the self-effacing man, Zachary Macaulay – one far less known than Wilberforce or his famous son, Thomas Babington Macaulay – and to correct the imbalance of the record.

It is an endeavour to assess in some measure Zachary Macaulay’s enormous contribution to the abolition of both the slave trade and of slavery itself in the...
This concise and easy-to-read biography gives an excellent overview of ‘The Doctor’. Dr Lloyd-Jones, as the author observes, knew the Lord and it is therefore his hope that this biography will constrain many to know God better.

The date was the 14 December 1926 and the national newspapers were using startling headlines concerning him: ‘Harley Street Doctor to become a Minister' and...

As Adolf Hitler and the Nazis seduced a nation, bullied a continent and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of dissidents and saboteurs worked to dismantle the Third Reich from the inside. One of these was Dietrich Bonhoeffer – a pastor and author.

Eric Metaxas takes both strands of Bonhoeffer’s life – the theologian and the spy – and draws them together to...
The recent Narnia films have inspired a resurgence of interest in C. S. Lewis, the Oxford academic, popular theologian and, most famously, creator of the magical world of Narnia. This authoritative new biography, published to mark the 50th anniversary of Lewis's death, sets out to introduce him to a new generation. Completely up to date with scholarly studies of Lewis, it also focuses on how...

No one had greater influence for the good of evangelicalism in the nineteen century than Charles Simeon. Amazingly his influence remains, not least in his endurance under opposition and his encouragement and training of young men to teach and preach. Many men like John Stott acknowledge their indebtedness to Simeon's example and the pattern he set for expository ministry.

Every Christian needs dependable role models to whom one can look for teaching and example. Many of the greatest role models have departed this life, but their legacy lives on, and Christian men and women can learn much about a godly life from saints of the past.

Athanasius, John Owen and Gresham Machen are three such saints: they were true soldiers for the sake of the cross and...
