The Charismatic Illusion
Author: Peter Masters & John C Whitcomb
This is an expanded revision of the Charismatic Phenomenon (1982) with answers to questions. This new edition comes with more answers to questions asked by people investigating the arguments. This veteran book contends for the biblical position on the gifts that prevailed for nearly 2,000 years before the charismatic movement came along. Here is the dynamic teaching of the Spirit that sustained true churches and believers through dark and bright years of history, through the Reformation, through the Puritan era, through the time of great Confessions of Faith, through repeated awakenings and revivals, and through the worldwide growth of the modern missionary movement. Here is the case for authentic biblical spiritual life.
Wonders of Grace
Author: Original Testimonies (Compiled: Hannah Wyncoll)
Drawn from the early years of Spurgeon’s remarkable London ministry, these 138 testimonies of conversion form part of an archive of some 15,000 such accounts at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. Here is a powerful reaffirmation of the transforming power of the Gospel in individual lives. Also provides insights into the signs of connversion looked for by the elders, and the questions put to the converts. Here also is a fascinating glimpse into life in Victorian London, with accounts of servants, crossing sweepers, hatters and factory workers, artisans and middle class converts, brimming with social interest. Illustrated with facsimile pages of notes by C H Spurgeon and elders and photographs of London life at that time.
The Personal Spiritual Life
Author: Peter Masters
In what sense may we ‘feel’ the presence of the Lord? What was the Apostle Paul’s method for progress in holiness? How may we identify our spiritual gifts? And how may we count more for the Lord, and sustain spiritual joy? These are among the themes of this tonic for present-day disciples of Christ.
Readers will find this new book by Dr Peter Masters a practical and excellent way to spur them on in their desire to serve the Lord wholeheartedly. This book is easy to read but the opposite of shallow. The chapter on "Feeling the Presence of the Lord" is the first we have read that so carefully explains the blessing and purpose of God as being near to us by faith.
The New Calvinists Changing The Gospel
Author: ES Williams
Enmity between the Church and the world dates from the Fall of man, so God says in Genesis 3.15. Satan’s major strategy is the overthrow of the Church by the world, through infiltration and contamination.
But seldom has this battle reached the proportions of this present hour, when worldliness threatens every Christian and church. And so subtle is the enemy that fatal compromise now comes with an appearance of sound doctrine – in an apparent resurgence of the very best of Reformation and Puritan teaching.
This book reveals the new ‘gospel’ of the so-called ‘new Calvinism’. It is a gospel that changes the terms of salvation, and that loves the world and embraces its culture. Here are the objectives of the new Calvinists, taken from their own words.
