François Gaussen was an influential writer, minister, and professor of systematic theology. His best-known writings validate the authority of Scripture for Christians and non-Christians alike, examining the Bible both as a man-made historical record and as a work of divine inspiration. Gaussen’s writings approach their subjects with a shepherd’s heart, seeking to increase the reader’s love for, and trust in, Scripture.

Works of François Gaussen (5 vols.) includes Gaussen’s most famous texts, Theopneustia and The Canon of the Holy Scriptures, as well as two texts written for young believers and Geneva and Rome, written to address what he believed to be the growing threat of the papacy. Each of these texts was written to a different audience, with a different purpose, but Gaussen’s unique wisdom and insight permeates them all.

Individual Titles

Theopneustia: The Plenary Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures

  • Author: François Gaussen
  • Publisher: Samuel Bagster and Sons
  • Publication Date: 1841
  • Pages: 444

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Theopneustia systematically defends the doctrine of plenary inspiration. The text was wildly popular in France and was immediately translated to English.

The extraordinarily able manner in which the ever important subject of this volume has been treated by its author, merely regarding the performance in the light of learned criticism, forcible reasoning, eloquent utterance and beautiful illustration, recommends it to a most prominent notice in any literary journal.

The Monthly Review

The Canon of the Holy Scriptures: From the Double Point of View of Science and of Faith

  • Author: François Gaussen
  • Publisher: James Nisbet and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1862
  • Pages: 662

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Written as a supplement to Theopneustia, The Canon of the Holy Scriptures thoroughly examines Scripture’s authenticity. The first part of the text draws from the historical records surrounding the New Testament to treat the Bible as if it were any other historical document, and not a divinely inspired text. The second part of the text is directed to believers and is intended to establish the canonicity of the Scriptures.

The Prophet Daniel Explained: In a Series of Readings for Young Persons

  • Author: François Gaussen
  • Publisher: J. & C. Mozley
  • Publication Date: 1873
  • Pages: 248

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

This text is broken into a series of lessons that explain the book of Daniel to youth.

It would be difficult to find any teaching more sensible or more calculated to arrest the attention of those for whose special benefit it was originally undertaken.

The Rock

The World’s Birth-Day: A Book for the Young

  • Author: François Gaussen
  • Publisher: T. Nelson and Sons
  • Publication Date: 1860
  • Pages: 270

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The World’s Birth-Day was written to a group of youths who visited Gaussen while he was crippled by illness. Gaussen had recently given them a lesson on creation, and responded to their kindness with a reminder of the beauty of Genesis, and Scripture’s implications for believers as new creations in Christ.

. . . the discoveries of science are ingeniously reconciled with the teachings of the Bible. . . Books of this kind are the best that could be put into the hands of young persons during the approaching holidays.

The National Quarterly Review

Geneva and Rome: Rome Papal as Portrayed by Prophecy and History

  • Author: François Gaussen
  • Publisher: W. H. Dalton
  • Publication Date: 1859
  • Pages: 53

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

In Geneva and Rome, Gaussen argues that prophecy of the little horn in Daniel points to the papacy, and the text seeks to show the Christian body the dangers of the papacy’s increasing power.

These excellent discourses will, we are assured, do much good.

The Churchman’s Monthly Review

A powerful argument against the man of sin, which cannot be too widely disseminated.

    I put a bid on this at the going rate, mainly for the first the idea of Daniel "for young people" gave me a chuckle. But FWIW, I can assure you 100% that whatever else it might be, the papacy is not the Little Horn any more than Luther and Billy Graham are.
