John Arrowsmith's great work "Armilla Catechetica" or "A Chain of principles" is a summary of Christian Doctrine written in the typical puritan way so as to stir the heart as well as the mind. This book has not been reprinted recently and it would be very difficult for ordinary readers to gain access to it other than here. John Arrowsmith was Master of Trinity College Cambridge from 1653-1659.

James Durham's book of sermons on the conscience has been thoroughly proof read and a considerable number of footnotes added to explain archaic and Scottish words.

January 21st 2006

I saw a link to this blog - The New College Conventicle regarding the historical study of the Puritans when I was reading Phil's blog.

We are working hard on John Arrowsmith's work of theology "Armilla Catechetica" or "A Chain of Principles" He was Master of both St. John's and Trinity College successively and Professor of Divinity at Cambridge University. The book was originally published in 1659. Here is a image of the first page to wet your appetite!

B.B. Warfield thought highly of this work and republished selections from it in 1889.

January 7th 2006

The e-book of Heaven upon Earth is now available for subscribers. This is a full searchable text version available in pdf format.

This volume is a series of sermons preached in Glasgow on the major texts dealing with the conscience from the New Testament. The following volumes are now also available:

January 5th 2006

We have made available the first part of a project to produce the works of R.L. Dabney in electronic format. The volumes that are currently available to all subscribers are:

The biograhy and Letters of Dabney along with what he regarded as his most important work "Practical Philosophy" will soon be available.

December 28th 2005

Another brand new e-book is now available. This is a volume written by the great Scottish Theologian and pastor Samuel Rutherford. Extracts have been produced and are available elsewhere on the internet. This however is (as far as we know) the first time this volume has been available either as a hardcopy reprint or an e-book. This is available here for those whose subscriptions have been confirmed.

Also unique to this site is a volume of sermons preached by James Durham (another great Scottish preacher and theologian) on the conscience. This volume has not been reprinted or published anywhere on the internet. It's title is "Heaven on Earth" and the sermons deal with key texts in the New Testament on the function of the conscience. This appears to be a much neglected subject in evangelical preaching today. Thus we know little of the causes of the pain and depression which afflict us and little of the joy and "heaven on earth" of a good conscience. These sermons richly repay a careful study.

The complete image file of Heaven on Earth - James Durham is now available.

December 20th 2005

The complete image file of Self Examination - R. Bolton is now available here.
