John Jackson (1600-1648) was a Westminster Puritan divine with a theological intellect, and tender pastoral heart. What makes a worthy minister of the Gospel? Jackson's work focuses on the stones... More > in the High Priest’s breastplate, as it is set down by Moses in Exod. 28:17-20, and the overlapping passage of Rev. 21:19-20 which concerns the stones seen in the walls of the New Jerusalem. Both the ministry of God’s servants in the Old and New Testaments have certain qualities represented in these stones. Jackson keenly explains these passages to demonstrate that ministers labor after the rich endowments and virtuous habits of grace, which they receive by co-working with God, and they do this by frequent repeated acts of prayer and preaching, to introduce grace into their own soul and the souls of others by the power of God.

eBook (ePub): $4.99
Thomas Hodges (1600-1672) was a fiery puritan minister of the Gospel and an active member of the Westminster Assembly. Matthew 5:13, “Ye are the salt of the earth.” Hodges shows that... More > ministers are to be savory salt, for Christ teaches the disciples to be this preserving and medicinal salt. Gospel ministers are necessary, and why their duty before God is so important, is seen in six areas: 1. It is their duty to be savory salt. 2. Some ministers may prove to be unsavory salt. 3. How salt becomes unsavory. 4. Unsavory salt is hardly curable. 5. That in this condition it is useless. 6. That bad ministers, unfaithful in their office, are liable to ejection and contempt. Preachers must realize, being salt, are a preservative, and a medicinal, where their preaching must be sharp, truthful, biblical, doctrinal and applicable.

Hardcover: List Price: $45.84 $36.67 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This volume is the original 1647 version of the Westminster Confession of Faith, and its subordinate documents which comprise the Solemn League and Covenant, the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, the... More > Form of Presbyterial Church Government, and the directories for Public and Private Worship (also included is the Sum of Saving Knowledge). The Confession and Catechisms are proved by Scripture using the Authorized Version (the King James) as published in 1647 by the Assembly.

The 1647 Westminster Confession of Faith is the most precise and theologically rich confession produced by the Christian Church. The church of Jesus Christ, in contending for the faith once delivered to the saints, should rely on the BEST confession available. This is it! Some proof Scriptures have been updated for precise accuracy in this third edition.< Less
The Calling of the Ministry By C. Matthew McMahon, William Perkins
Paperback: $11.99

William Perkins (1558-1602) was a powerful Puritan Reformed minister and theologian. Preaching today is in rapid decline. Pulpits all over the planet are filled with ministers who gain a paycheck,... More > but give little else. William Perkins explains what it means to be truly called to the holy office of the minister. He does this from two principle texts: Job chapters 32-33 with emphasis on 33:23, and Isaiah 6:1-13. Perkins says that the words in Job contain, “a valuable description of a true minister,” how he is a messenger and an interpreter, one in a thousand. Then, he explains Isaiah 6:1-13 of Isaiah’s confirmation, showing Isaiah was fearful, stunned, cast down, comforted, and renewed in his commission to go and be sent of God to preach for Christ's glory.

Daniel Burgess (1645-1713) was a popular Reformed, Presbyterian minister, and a fiery preacher in his day. The Christian cannot check off a list a number of items to be better in prayer, bible... More > study, worship, or any other spiritual discipline. Burgess will show that in spiritual duties all of them are a matter of the heart and of the head. The Christian can’t check off, “get your heart right before God,” or, “make your mind more consecrated to God in the morning.” They can’t check off, “improve your use of the holy sacrament of the Lord’s Supper,” or, “receive the faithful minister’s words when he preaches as God’s own words.” These are issues of the heart, salvation, regeneration, and being a Christian. Burgess shows how to take these “holy directions” and think rightly about them in applying them in their everyday life.

Christ's Ascension and Second Coming from Heaven By C. Matthew McMahon, Christopher Love
eBook (ePub): $5.99
Christopher Love (1618-1651) was a fiery and practical Puritan preacher. His works consist of some of the best written and preached biblical expositions in print. Christopher Love harvests sweet... More > biblical honey from the word of God concerning the ascension of Jesus Christ, and the coming of Christ again to judgment. Though Love carefully refutes theological ideas such as the 1000 year earthly millennial reign of Christ, and the idea of soul sleep, he is more focused on demonstrating the sweetness and benefits of Christ’s ascension and second coming. His main text is John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you. I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.” Christ’s ascension is a ground of great comfort and great advantage to all God's people while they dwell here on earth.
