A minister of the Presbyterian Church in the United States for more than sixty years, William Childs Robinson tirelessly laboured to arrest the Southern Presbyterian Church’s slide toward a liberal theological position and preserve the old Calvinism that had marked the church from its beginning.

In seminary classrooms, in pulpits across the South and beyond, and in the courts of...
This first volume of two brings the story of George Whitefield, and of the evangelical revival, up to the end of the year 1740. In it we are told in vivid detail how a young man of Gloucester – “at 16 a tapster, at 26 the most brilliant and popular preacher the modern world has ever known” – exercised a ministry of the gospel crammed full of arduous labour and crowned with divine blessing.

Greater than any other Reformation era figure, John Calvin stimulated the debate, thoughts and ideas that have come to dominate Western culture and society. Dedicated to the reform of the church, and insistent on a plain (i.e. literal) reading of scripture, his influence radically changed the face of Protestantism and Society.

The period 1741-1770, covered by this second and concluding volume on George Whitefield, was not one of cloudless sunshine. It opened with the doctrinal conflict with the two Wesleys and with a serious division in Methodist ranks. But this was quickly followed by a visit to Scotland in which revival reached its high watermark. Then came years of unwavering effort to evangelise the people of the...

Formerly published as But Now I See, this biography contains much valuable first-hand material from Newton himself. Indeed, considerable use is made of his Diary and Letters. His pre-conversion days, his call to the Christian ministry, and his time at Olney and St. Mary Woolnoth are all covered. This is no arid record of the past. Besides being a worthy memorial to the life and work of John...
Faith Cook has drawn on unpublished and little-known sources to produce this comprehensive new biography of the man of whom John Wesley said, A few such as him would make a nation tremble. He carries fire wherever he goes. John MacArthur, of Grace to You ministries, writes: Grimshaws unflagging energy and vigorous defence of the faith was matched by a charitable spirit that was a model of true...

A fascinating study focusing on three significant themes relating to Lloyd-Jones’ ministry: the nature of true preaching; the importance of full assurance of salvation for a vibrant and persuasive Christianity; and the grounds of fellowship between Christians and churches. This edition also contains previously unpublished material and a CD of a Lloyd-Jones sermon.
In These Strange Ashes, Elisabeth Elliot shares what it was like in her first year as a missionary to work in the jungles of Ecuador with a small group of women, bringing the Word of God to the Colorado Indians.

With fascinating detail, she captures the stark realities of life among this primitive people and reflects upon the ‘strange ashes’ that can result when an act of obedience...

During the war Helen was brutally beaten and raped and left with no choice but to return to Britain (this story is told in Give me this Mountain). She quickly returned to the Congo in 1966 to assist in the rebuilding of the...
