Encounters By Ken Scott
eBook (PDF): $4.00
Encounters focuses on interactions with family, friends and strangers, and my perceptions of them. “Imprint,” a poem about a child experiencing the natural world, introduces the... More > collection with a warning not to forget the common, that it contains truths to be remembered and discovered. This thought carries readers into the rest of my collection. Diverse in subject matter, the poems range from the lighthearted to confessional and serious. In reading Wordsworth, I like the way he takes the common subjects and “throw[s] over them a certain coloring of the imagination,” making the usual seem unusual. “Amishland Cow Tipping” exemplifies my incorporation of this idea when the pushed cow tips, allowing it to see the world in a fresh way. While I want my poetry to be entertaining and enjoyable, I hope that it leaves my readers encountering the world in a new, fresh way.< Less
The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe By Daniel Defoe

More > title character—a castaway who spends 28 years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued. The story was perhaps influenced by the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on the Pacific island called "Más a Tierra", Chile. The details of Crusoe's island were probably based on the Caribbean island of Tobago, since that island lies a short distance north of the Venezuelan coast near the mouth of the Orinoco river, in sight of Trinidad. It is possible that Defoe was inspired by the Latin or English translations of Ibn Tufail's Hayy ibn Yaqdhan, an earlier novel also set on a desert island.< Less

The Holy Trinity, volume 3 of the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics series, explains the difficulties we face in confessing the Trinity in our world today and how we overcome these challenges by... More > placing Christ and the Gospel at the center of our preaching and teaching. The Holy Trinity returns us to Scripture and shows how the Old and New Testaments carefully and decisively present the indivisible oneness and irreducible threeness of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Finally, The Holy Trinity introduces readers to the sound pattern of words used by the Fathers and Lutheran reformers to clarify and defend the trinitarian witness of Scripture. We confess, worship, and glorify the Holy Trinity rightly when we boldly proclaim the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ. Carl L. Beckwith is professor of church history and doctrine at Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, Alabama.< Less

The following book comprises a series of articles and addresses primarily prepared from sermons and lectures delivered to my congregations on the Islands of Skye and Harris off the North-West coast... More > of Scotland. A few were prepared for my denomination’s magazine and a couple were first delivered to the Northern Reformed Fellowship and the Scottish Reformation Society. Broadly speaking they are offered to the wider church and general public in the hope that they might prove educational, edifying and encouraging based as they are on the ministry of the word. They provide a flavour of a Scottish presbyterian pulpit and lectern ministry and highlight central themes in the church’s worship, witness and work. As a Reformed minister it is my conviction that we must preach and teach the word in scripture and the Word Incarnate who is the only hope for a perishing world. It is my intention to demonstrate in what follows that Christ’s church is catholic, confessional and commissional.< Less

More > were addressed not to any particular person or church, but to the faithful generally after the manner of an Encyclical letter. Though addressed to particular persons the other two Epistles of St. John are also styled Catholic, because they have always been grouped with the epistles bearing that name. Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer who generated much controversy. In addition to the Institutes, he wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, as well as theological treatises and confessional documents. Calvin was influenced by the Augustinian tradition, which led him to expound the doctrine of predestination and the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation.< Less
