The Author:
Jeremiah Burroughs

The Book:
The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment




“When times are difficult and God’s people experience loss it is vital that we remember the sufficiency of God our Saviour. Jeremiah Burroughs is a kind of doctor for the Christian soul who points the wounded traveler to the treasure of Christ.” – T. Pruitt


WTS Books describes the book this way:

“Burroughs’ writings, some published before and others after his death, were numerous, but The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment is one of the most valuable of them all. Its author was much concerned to promote:

peace among believers of various ‘persuasions’
peace and contentment in the hearts of individual believers during what he describes as ‘sad and sinking times’.

The Rare Jewel concentrates upon this second aim. It is marked by sanity, clarity, aptness of illustration, and warmth of appeal to the heart. ‘There is an ark that you may come into, and no men in the world may live such comfortable, cheerful and contented lives as the saints of God’. Burroughs presses his lesson home with all the fervor and cogency of a true and faithful minister of God.”

The Old Guys Book Giveaway!

6 Mar

Starting today and ending this Friday, March 9th any who wish will have the opportunity to win a copy of a book written by one of the old guys! We hope to have these giveaways from time to time and our desire is that this will help someone have the opportunity to dive deeper into a specific work by one of our beloved old guys.


The Author:
John Bunyan

The Book:
Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ




“Of all John Bunyan’s writings, this book most fully expresses his delight and joy in the free and gracious welcome given to sinners by Jesus Christ.” – Publisher


WTS Books describes the book this way:

“It is a thorough exposition of John 6:37: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Bunyan not only explains the meaning of the terms used in the text, but also labours to remove the doubts and difficulties of sinners and backsliders in their approach to Christ.

This work could be said to have given rise indirectly to the modern missionary movement, since it strongly influenced Andrew Fuller, the first secretary of the pioneering Baptist Missionary Society, and helped him to set his denomination free from the grip of hyper-Calvinism. It is a Christian classic that deserves a wide modern readership. ”

The Old Guys Book Giveaway!

14 Nov

Starting today and ending this Saturday, November 19 any who wish will have the opportunity to win a copy of a book written by one of the old guys! We hope to have these giveaways from time to time and our desire is that this will help someone have the opportunity to dive deeper into a specific work by one of our beloved old guys.

This week’s giveaway features: John Owen.

J.I. Packer had this to say about him:

“Owen was by common consent the weightiest Puritan theologian, and many would bracket him with Jonathan Edwards as one of the greatest Reformed theologians of all time. “

The Book: Overcoming Sin and Temptation

Jerry Bridges describes the book this way:

“John Owen’s three treatises on sin, mortification, and temptation are a price­ less treasure. To read them is to mine pure spiritual gold. Unfortunately, as in mining, reading Owen is hard work. Now, through skillful editing, Kelly Kapic and Justin Taylor have made Owen’s work accessible to modern read­ers while still retaining his unique writing style. Anyone concerned about per­sonal holiness will profit from reading this new edition of a classic work.”

Starting today and ending this Friday, September 23 any who wish will have the opportunity to win a copy of a book written by one of the old guys!

“Owen was by common consent the weightiest Puritan theologian, and many would bracket him with Jonathan Edwards as one of the greatest Reformed theologians of all time. “

The Book: Communion with the Triune God



WTS Books describes the book this way:

“Does it make a difference that the God Christians claim to worship has revealed himself as triune—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Does this fundamental truth of biblical authority have an effect on a believe’s personal fellowship with God?

Puritan theologian John Owen (1616-1683) recognized the great need for every believer to understand the triune God. Communion with the Triune God revisits the truth presented by John Owen and challenges all believers to truly recognize and appreciate the ministry that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have in their lives. This work of John Owen encourages Christians to enjoy true communion with each person of the triune God.”
