Selected Spiritual Writings of Anne Dutton: Eighteenth-Century, British-Baptist, Woman Theologian: Volume 7: Words of Grace
By author: JoAnn Ford Watson
Product Code: H889
ISBN: 9780881464986
Availability: In stock
Price: $50.00
Volume 7: Words of Grace is the last volume of letters rounding out Anne Dutton's correspondence as a significant spiritual writer and encourager of revival and growth in holiness. Particularly important is the precious treasure of her seventeen letters sent to the Rev. George Whitefield and his friends and acquaintances in 1745 to encourage his work and ministry in England and in the colonies, as well as his orphanage in Bethesda. Also included are two additional 1745 letters—one on the being and working of sin and the other on the duty and privilege of a believer—sent to Whitefield's Society at the Tabernacle in London. Three collections of Dutton's letters—Volumes I (1740), IV (1746), and VIII (1750)—on spiritual subjects addressed to relations and friends also appear in this volume. These letters show her to be a spiritual director, guide, and voice of holiness in evangelical revival in England in the eighteenth century.

Separation of Church and State: Founding Principle of Religious Liberty
By author: Frank Lambert
Product Code: H884
ISBN: 9780881464771
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $29.00
Frank Lambert tackles the central claims of the Religious Right "historians" who insist that America was conceived as a "Christian State," that modern-day "liberals" and "secularists" have distorted and/or ignored the place of religion in American history, and that the phrase "the separation of church and state" does not appear in any of the founding documents and is, therefore, a myth created by the Left. He discusses what separates "bad" history from "good" history, and concludes that the self-styled "historians" of the Religious Right create a "useful past" that enlists the nation's founders on behalf of present-day conservative religious and political causes. The result exposes the Religious Right "history" as fabrications and half-truths. In fact, one of the foundational principles of the Constitution is that of separation as the key to safeguarding freedom: separation of powers, separation of federal and state governments, and separation of church and state.

The Collected Works of Hanserd Knollys: Pamphlets On Religion
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H933
ISBN: 9780881466102
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Hanserd Knollys was one of the most influential Baptists of the seventeenth century. University educated, he provided guidance for Baptists on many key issues that formed their identity. In debate with other religious leaders he defended conscious commitment to Christ by each individual, the congregational character of the church, and the necessity of religious liberty. In addition to these three foundational beliefs, Knollys provided guidance for early Baptists on debated issues of practice. He endorsed the value of learning from the writings of inspired women, he endorsed congregational singing, and he supported raising funds for the support of ministers. In all of these matters he provided precedents and strong arguments for Baptist practice. Knollys served as pastor of a local London congregation, extended Baptist influence through preaching tours and provided a high standard of education in the schools he organized and led.

Product Format: Hardback

Price: $35.00
Ben M. Bogard was the preeminent leader of Landmark Baptists during the first half of the twentieth century. He was the personification of polemics, engaging the political, cultural, and religious issues of his day. Whether he was debating Aimee Semple McPherson, accusing J. Frank Norris of failing to preach the fundamentals of the faith, campaigning to outlaw the teaching of evolution, or condemning the ecumenical movement, Bogard never ceased defining and defending his understanding of the true Christian faith. This book, the first scholarly biography of one of the most important Baptists in twentieth-century America, traces Bogard’s life as he rose to prominence, organized Landmark Baptists, created a seminary and publishing enterprise, and became the father of the modern Landmark Baptist movement.

Price: $35.00
The Forgotten Heritage if Baptist preaching is-so Thomas R. McKibbens argues- characterized equally by intellectual rigor and evangelistic warmth. It is the union of head and heart in the pulpit, conservative in theology yet liberal in spirit. Above all, it is gracious, born of the grace of God. The greatest Baptist preaching has done more than grow large churches; it has nourished strong Christians in the passion and depth of the gospel.
