Christ Is All highlights the life and work of the memorable nineteenth-century Scottish minister and poet, Horatius Bonar. Michael A. G. Haykin and Darrin R. Brooker present 65 excerpts from Bonar’s writings that capture his ardent devotion to the glory of Christ.

Devoted to the Service of the Temple: Piety, Persecution, and Ministry in the Writings of Hercules Collins

  • Authors: Michael A. G. Haykin and Steve Weaver

While largely forgotten in modern times, Hercules Collins was highly influential among the late seventeenth and early eighteenth-century Calvinistic Baptists of London. Through a biographical sketch and 35 selections from Collin’s writings, Michael A.G. Haykin and Steve Weaver introduce us to the vibrant spirituality of this colossal figure.

Hercules Collins is one of the great figures from our Baptist heritage—a heritage who suffered much for the cause of Christ and left a great legacy for generations that followed. There is something especially compelling about the witness of a man who was oppressed and imprisoned for his faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. The witness of Hercules Collins as pastor, prisoner, and preacher is worthy of the closest attention in our own times. We are indebted to Michael Haykin and Steve Weaver for bringing Hercules Collins to life for a new generation.

A Sweet Flame introduces readers to the piety of Jonathan Edwards.

The remainder of the book presents 26 selections from various letters written by Edwards, two letters written by family members at his death, and an appendix drawing upon Edwards’ last will and the creator of his estate.

In this collection of letters Michael Haykin offers you a behind-the-scenes look into the life of Jonathan Edwards. As you look, you will see him dealing with sick children, trying to make sense out of the conflict with his Northampton congregation, and reveling in the serendipitous of friendship. Read these letters and you will find Edwards becoming your own ‘most obliging and affectionate friend in the labors of the gospel.

—Stephen J. Nichols, adjunct professor of church history, Reformed Theological Seminary

The book also contains fifty selections from Swinnock’s writings, exemplifying his teaching on the foundation, door, value, pursuit, nature, means, and motives to godliness.

Swinnock gives us the essence of Puritanism and J. Stephen Yuille gives us the essence of Swinnock. Here is doctrine and life, vision and devotion, the poetry and the passion of typical Puritan preaching. A first-rate taster of what is available in Swinnock's Works.

Through both the biographical essay and the selections from Lemuel Haynes’s writings, this text reveals an Edwardsian sense of spirituality that constantly lived in view of eternity. Well acquainted with difficulties, suffering, and death, Haynes’ ministry was infused with the unfailing hope of heaven.

I rejoice to know that God has given me friends and heroes like Lemuel Haynes and Thabiti Anyabwile. I love them both. I have learned much from them. In reading this volume, I am sure you will too.

The King in His Beauty introduces readers to the life and writings of Samuel Rutherford. Matthew Vogan provides a biographical introduction that traces the significant events of this Scottish theologian’s life and guides readers through his writings, focusing on his distinctive insight into Christian experience. In 43 excerpts drawn from Rutherford’s letters, major treatises, catechism, and sermons, readers will discover the depth of Rutherford’s compassion, piety, and theological wisdom, all rooted in his unwavering love for Christ.

Samuel Rutherford is the most significant devotional writer in the British Reformed tradition, and in Matthew Vogan he has found the ideal editor. This book gathers together the most important passages in Rutherford’s writing, to preserve for us his unique appreciation of the glories of Immanuel’s land.

—Crawford Gribben, senior lecturer, Trinity College Dublin

Ever heard a foreign language and thought, ‘That’s beautiful. I’d love to understand that, or even speak like that’? You may have a similar sensation as you read Samuel Rutherford’s moving descriptions of Jesus Christ and his loving interactions with needy sinners. While the heavenly language and passionate experiences may initially seem strange to our shallow minds and cold hearts, Christians will find themselves enraptured and enticed to a deeper, higher, and wider knowledge and experience of Jesus Christ as they read these beautiful words.

Garretson has favored us with a wonderful study on biblical and Christian piety as displayed through the writings of this early American Presbyterian minister and educator. Those who are interested in an introduction on Christian piety need look no further.

“Venture All for God”: Piety in the Writings of John Bunyan

  • Authors: Roger Duke and Phil Newton
  • Series: Profiles in Reformed Spirituality
  • Series Editors: Joel R. Beeke and Michael A. G. Haykin
  • Publisher: Reformation Heritage
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 208

Many Christians are familiar with The Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan’s famous book written from a prison cell, which portrays the Christian life as one traveling from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. During Bunyan’s life, however, he produced nearly 60 books and tracts. Roger Duke and Phil Newton, with Drew Harris, trace the significant events that shaped Bunyan’s life and thought in a biographical introduction and, in 31 excerpts from a variety of his writings, give us a glimpse of his piety, which flowed from his desire to “venture all for God.”

These excerpts from Bunyan capture both the heart and the thought of this great seventeenth-century preacher and spiritual guide. This is condensed Bunyan . . . Divine sovereignty, divine mercy, effectual grace, human culpability and need—all of these move together seamlessly and in the full context of biblical truth with such charm and artlessness that the reader discovers in each reading the true power of Bunyan. Phil Newton and Roger Duke deserve our thanks for their selections and their contextualizing material in this volume.

Tom J. Nettles, professor of historical theology, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

All those who, like Timothy, are prepared to ‘Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart’ (2 Tim. 2:22) will find in this wonderful, spiritually nurturing volume great encouragement and inspiration to “venture all for God” and live a life devoted to the glory of God and to the truth of his gospel.

Andreas Köstenberger, professor of New Testament and biblical theology, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

John Bunyan has left the English-speaking world an almost unparalleled literary legacy of evangelical and Reformed piety. Phil Newton, Roger Duke, and Drew Harris have done us a service by making this collection of Bunyan’s writings available. It is a worthy contribution to the outstanding Profiles in Reformed Spirituality series and will be a source of inspiration and comfort for many pastors, seminary students, and Christian scholars. This book deserves a careful and prayerful reading.

—Nathan Finn, assistant professor of church history and Baptist studies, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

In Venture All for God, Roger Duke and Phil Newton introduce Bunyan to a new generation of readers by showing the joyous, daring faith of a man whose writings mirrored his own spiritual journey.

“An Honest and Well-Experienced Heart”: The Piety of John Flavel

  • Author: Adam Embry
  • Series: Profiles in Reformed Spirituality
  • Series Editors: Joel R. Beeke and Michael A. G. Haykin
  • Publisher: Reformation Heritage
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 145

An Honest, Well-Experienced Heart introduces us to the life and writings of Puritan preacher and author John Flavel. In his brief, introductory biography, Adam Embry discusses Flavel’s background, ministry, and theology of keeping the heart, which, for Flavel, “is the great business of a Christian’s life.” Centuries ago, Flavel wrote, “Above all other studies in the world, study your own hearts.” Embry guides us through 42 short passages from Flavel’s writings that acquaint us with this dedicated Puritan minister’s piety and help us see the importance of this great business of keeping and managing our hearts.

John Flavel blended skillfully a robust Reformed theology with a warm-hearted Puritan piety. This made his writings both profound and simple. I pray that Adam Embry’s primer on Flavel’s work will promote a new generation of thoughtful readers intent on loving Christ more.

—Ryan McGraw, pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church
