The Use of Instruments of Music in Christian Corporate Worship Indefensible By James Begg
Paperback: $16.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Regulative Principle says, God alone determines the manner in which sinners are to approach him. This work by James Begg applies this Principle and much scriptural proof to demonstrate that the... More > use of musical instruments in the worship of God’s church, is, as Begg states, “indefensible.” Begg begins his work quoting Calvin who says, “In Popery they employed organs and many other such ludicrous things, by which the Word and worship of God are exceedingly profaned.” Begg continues this sentiment throughout the entire work which is a powerful argument against contemporary worship in modern churches – even those that “say” they stand on the Bible and the Westminster Confession. Chapters in this work include: The Scriptural Principle Which Regulates Christian Worship; The Inconsistent Use of Musical Instruments in the House of God Under the New Testament; The Impact of Art on Religion; Dancing in Worship; The Westminster Divines on the Greek term “psalmos,” and much more!< Less
The True Psalmody - The Bible Psalms the Church's Only Manual of Praise By The Reformed Ministers
Paperback: $15.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Worship to God is of primary importance. God has determined what that worship should be like, and what will honor Him. The Reformed Presbyterian Ministers of the 19th century in America have brought... More > together in one volume a fantastic compilation of the best information in their day about what is to be used in singing during corporate worship. The Scottish ministers shortly after, having received this work in their own day well after its first publication, heartily recommended it in their multiple introductory notes. The book deals with the application of the Regulative Principle in singing to God during corporate worship. The theological outcome of such a study dictates the manner in which a Christian may lawfully WORSHIP THE LIVING GOD. We are not speaking about secondary issues, or non-essentials. We are speaking about WORSHIP. The topic is profoundly practical and will press Christians to consider their current position on worship, and the singing of Psalms.< Less
The Christian's Charge Never to Offend God in Worship By C. Matthew McMahon & John Forbes
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
John Forbes (1568-1634) was a Scottish Minister and fiery reformed preacher who desired to see the church reformed for the glory of God. Mr. Forbes will show you that the house of God should be... More > ordered by God’s rules, and that God’s "people" are to be ordered by God’s rules. He demonstrates from 1 Tim. 6:13-16 that it is impossible to worship God by human invention, impossible to worship God by human ingenuity, and impossible to worship God in an atmosphere that has not been structured and ordered by God and His word. The Regulative Principle expresses clearly that God alone determines the manner sinners are to approach him in worship. Such a doctrine should never be dismissed simply because our contemporary culture is more captivated by being entertained rather than instructed by God’s truth. This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.< Less

Hardcover: $34.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646), was a brilliant Reformed preacher of the Gospel, and an astute theologian. God has not left his ordinances of worship to the inventions of men. God has set down... More > certain specific requirements which are to be followed. It was a hallmark of the Reformation that God alone determines the manner in which sinners approach him. This is the substance of Burroughs’ treatise Gospel Worship, for God will be treated as holy by those who come into His presence (Lev. 10:1-3). In this treasured work, Burroughs masterfully provides guidelines to facilitate the reader to move closer to God in worship. In 14 sermons, he carefully explains the right manner of worshipping God in general, and the three great ordinances of hearing the Word, receiving the Lord’s Supper, and prayer.

A Biblical Response to Superstition, Will-Worship and the Christmas Holiday By Daniel Cawdrey
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Daniel Cawdrey (1588-1664) was a learned Presbyterian minister during the golden age of Puritanism. He was called, “a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the... More > assembly of divines.” In this work, Cawdrey exegetically demonstrates that worship to God is accomplished through God’s prescription alone. Anything less is man’s invention which leads to superstition and will-worship. He ably defends the regulative principle of worship (that God alone determines the manner in which sinners are to approach him) and demonstrates that the holiday of Christmas, in the manner that people use it as a “holy day,” is in fact filled with superstition, and must be considered will-worship. This is a powerful treatise on holding steadfastly to God’s prescribed manner of worship, and an exhortation to throw out all man-made inventions that hinder communion with God. This is not a facsimile or scanned document. It is newly typeset with an active table of contents for electronic versions.< Less
The Christian's Duty to Reject Christmas By C. Matthew McMahon & Thomas Mockett
eBook (ePub): $5.99
Thomas Mockett (or Mocket) (1602-1670), was a scholar and Reformed preacher of the Gospel during the era of Westminster. Calamy describes him as, “a very pious, and humble... More > man.” Mockett’s argument in this work is directed to well-meaning Christians who are defiling the Regulative Principle – that God alone determines the manner and time in which sinners are to approach him. He writes against the, “observation of Christ’s nativity,” and shows the Christian how he is to reject adding Christ into Christmas as a religious or worship observance. Mockett is demonstrates the ill-use of trying to reclaim Christ for Christmas as an unholy venture. He will show that it is a detestable, sinful practice to put Christ back into Christmas since men have no warrant from God to do so. Though they do this in pretense of honoring Christ in a day of worship, and do so with a sincere heart, as Mockett shows, “Good intentions and well meanings cannot justify any unwarrantable practice.”< Less
