    The only things right now are just the old books. He is not really in print. RHB has something out that is a facsimilie, so you could try that...

    Twisse was premil, as I remember (not Dispensational, of course). Sign of a truly great mind, I'd say.:smug:

    Twisse's work on the fourth commandment is a bit tough to get into (certainly a new typesetting would make it easier to get through). However, I'm not sure it is worth the effort; I mean by that; if someone is going to put blood, sweat and tears (and :moneywings:) into reissuing a heretofore generally unavailable Puritan work on the fourth commandment, it needs to be Westminster Divines Palmer and Cawdrey, all 900+ pages of it. It is considered by many to be somewhat the capstone and best of the Puritan works on the subject, though not the last of the Puritan era chronologically.
