    Two new titles from the Northampton Press

    Folks, I'm glad to announce two new titles from the Northampton Press.

    1. "The Christian on the Mount," is Thomas Watson's treatise on Christian meditation. It is not in any current work in print by Watson, and has, in fact, been out of print since the early 1800's. I've retypeset and edited it for better readability.

    This 132 page hardback book will retail for $15, but is being offered at the pre-publication price of $10 until March 1, plus $5 postage.

    2. "Light and Heat: The Puritan View of the Pulpit" is a terrific look at what made Puritan preaching so effective, and, by comparison, why modern preaching is so paltry. The second part of this book is "The Focus of the Gospel in Puritan Preaching," and is a comparison of modern evangelical methods with Puritan preaching.

    This is the best book on the subject of Puritan preaching I've read. This 192 page hardback book will retail for $15, but also can be purchased until March 1 for $10, plus $5 postage.

    If you purchase both books together, the postage for both is only $5.

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    Here's an endorsement from Joel Beeke on the Watson book on meditation:

    "The Puritans were thoroughly Reformed, consistent, and persistent in using 'the art of meditation' as an important spiritual discipline and half-way house between the reading of Scripture and prayer. More than forty Puritans wrote books on the subject. Today we have reaped the fruits of not understanding that a non-meditative, mindless Christianity soon produces a spineless Christianity. Thomas Watson's guide for meditation is one of the best and briefest on the subject. If you wish to transform your spiritual disciplines for the better, read, re-read, and then put into practice this precious little book."

    Thanks for the other works you have collected as well. I recently purchased Sermons on the Lord's Supper and am enjoying it very much.

    I should say, I received my book from Dr. Kistler. And it's a beautiful book.
    I first read this work on Google Books. But to read it again with book in hand is even more special.
    The topic of Christian Meditation is very important to me. I hope to be able to more and more incorporate this practice in my life.
