John Calvin - Crucified and Risen: Sermons on the Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Christ (Banner of Truth) - RHB Price $20. MSRP - $26

To call the arrest, trial, scourging and crucifixion of Jesus Christ a miscarriage of justice is true as far as it goes, but it does not go far enough. Christ’s death on the cross was not an accident but, as his resurrection attests, was accomplished according to the sovereign, loving will of God, by which sinners can be reconciled to the One who made them, and can pass by grace from death to life.

In this memorable set of sermons which date from 1557 to 1558, Calvin, chief pastor of the Genevan church, offers a sensitive reading of Matthew’s account of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. The preacher’s focus, however, is not so much on the events themselves as on their significance, on what he calls the fruit and efficacy of Christ’s redemptive work. What, in practical terms, is the import of the Easter message for the life of faith? Calvin’s answer has vital implications not only for what we believe but for the way we live, serve, worship and pray.

Newly translated from the French of 1558 by Robert White.

‘If we seek for salvation, the name of Jesus alone teaches us that it is in him. … If we desire the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we will find them in his anointing. If we are looking for strength, we have it in his lordship…If we ask for redemption, his passion provides it. In his condemnation we have our absolution. If we want pardon for sin’s curse, that gift lies in his cross. Atonement we have in his sacrifice and cleansing in his blood. Our reconciliation was effected by his descent into hell; the mortification of our flesh lies in his burial, and newness of life in his resurrection, through which we also have the hope of immortality.’ — JOHN CALVIN

Samuel Miller - Presbyterianism: Its History, Doctrine, Government, and Worship (Log College) - RHB Price $10. MSRP - $14.99

Samuel Miller, the first professor of Ecclesiastical History and Church Government at Princeton Theological Seminary and a prolific author, published this introduction and defense of Presbyterianism in 1835. Originally titled Presbyterianism: The Truly Primitive and Apostolical Constitution of the Church of Christ, Miller covers the basics of Presbyterian belief and practice, grounding his material in the Scriptures primarily and church history secondarily. Dr. Harrison Perkins (PhD, Queen’s University Belfast) has annotated Miller’s work and tracked down his sources, and the Rev. Mr. Allen Stanton, pastor of Pinehaven Presbyterian Church in Clinton, Mississippi, has supplied a historical introduction of Miller and this book. With these additions to Miller’s rich substance, this work is a wonderful primer on the foundations of our tradition in all of its biblical and historical richness.

Robert David Smart - Waging War in an Age of Doubt (RHB) Normal price $16. Current Price $12.

The Christian life is a battle, but many believers today don’t realize their involvement in spiritual warfare. Our secular society, characterized by doubt and spiritual skepticism, leaves many Christians embarrassed even to talk about demonic forces of opposition. In order to awaken Christians to the battle around them and prepare them for it, Robert Smart surveys the terrain, identifies the enemy, and conveys defensive and offensive maneuvers for combating Satan. Just as military science combines knowledge of the humanities, natural sciences, applied sciences, and engineering, so this “military textbook” combines knowledge of the Bible, historical theology, contemporary culture, apologetics, practical theology, and biblical counseling. Here is a well-rounded overview of the unavoidable reality of spiritual warfare.

Also, we are close to being sold out of Curt Daniel's History and Theology of Calvinism. The publisher is out almost out of stock as well. This title will be out of print soon.
