    ‘The Gospel and its Ministry’ is a classic book in which Sir Robert Anderson deals in fresh and striking terms with the great truths of the Gospel of the Glory of the Blessed God, Grace, the Cross, Faith, Repentance and the Spirit's Work, Substitution, Righteousness, Election, Sanctification, Reconciliation and Justification. “Addressed to no special class, this book is intended for all who are interested in the doctrine of the Gospel. In the past it has proved helpful to not a few inquirers after truth; and it has been used as a text-book by many who seek to teach the truth to others.” – Sir Robert Anderson, in the Preface to The Gospel and its Ministry. It was said “Sir Robert Anderson’s books are amongst the most valuable of our day, and will long abide as a testimony to the truth of the Gospel”. Still in print a hundred and fifty years after it was first published, this book is just as helpful and enlightening as it was then.

    Christian Poetry - VOLUME 1 A selection of famous and not so famous poems and lyrics on spiritual themes. This Collection of 62 Poems by various authors including William Cowper, Thomas Kelly, Willie Mullan, Robert Murray McCheyne, Charlotte Elliott, George Herbert, Charitie Lees De Chenez and many others, has been brought together in order that these spiritual truths and impressions, presented in poetical form, will comfort and edify God’s people as they wrestle daily with the world, the flesh, and the devil. To know that others have felt what we have felt, ‘Through all the changing scenes of life , In trouble and in joy’ to hear the feelings in our hearts echoed back to us, to be reminded of our Lord’s love, will comfort the soul and bring encouragement. Some of the poems and lyrics included will be familiar as they have been set to music and become famous hymns – as John Newton puts it ‘these are not ‘odes’, but are truths put plainly and simply for ordinary people to understand’. Some others are perhaps more deep and thought- provoking. Perhaps listening to them being read, instead of being sung will allow you to appreciate the sentiments in a different way. This audio edition is produced with the prayerful desire that the Blessed Spirit of God may be pleased to use it for Christ’s Glory and for the comfort, encouragement and edification of God’s people. These poems are read by Alex Wyndham, Paul Ansdell, Anita Wright and Stuart Packer. Copyright Words by the Wayside, 2015.

    In LORD, BREAK ME! , William MacDonald explains that God puts a premium on broken things—especially on broken people. That is why we read such verses as: “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18). “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 51:17). God knows how to resist the proud and haughty, but He cannot resist a person who is humble and contrite. God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6). There is something in our brokenness that appeals to His compassion and power. And so part of His wonderful purpose for our lives is that we should be broken—broken in heart, broken in spirit, and broken even in body Think what it would mean in our individual lives, in our homes, in the local church and in the business world if we were all broken as we should be. What is meant by true brokenness? How does it manifest itself in a believer’s life? The daily prayer of the submissive saint is reflected in the words of the hymn: Have Thine own way, Lord! Have Thine own way! Thou art the Potter; I am the clay. Mould me and make me after Thy will, While I am waiting, yielded and still. A word about the author: William MacDonald (1917 – 2007) William (Bill) MacDonald was born in Massachusetts. His parents were from the Isle of Lewis and when he was six years old, his family moved to Stornoway, Scotland, later moving back to Massachusetts. A commended worker for sixty years, a teacher, preacher, mentor, and author of eighty-four books, including the Believer’s Bible Commentary, William MacDonald was a man who said and wrote much. Yet, for the those who knew him well, it was his life that left the greatest impression.

    "These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full." John 15:11 Why are so many Christians restless, worried and unhappy, even though the verse above tells us clearly that this is not what God intends for His children? In this booklet, we hope to address this question to discover God's remedy so that we might be able to say with Paul, "I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content" (Phil. 4:11). Included are chapters on : Dealing with Guilt, Seeking Peace, God Working, Peace of Mind, Confessing Our Sins, Joy of Forgiveness, Path of Peace, Following the Shepherd, Peace Assured, Trusting God, Value of Thanksgiving, Learning from Him, His Purpose, Power over Sin and Happy Living. A word about the author: EC Hadley and his wife Lydia began ‘Grace and Truth’ in 1931 when the first gospel tracts started rolling off the press in Danville, Illinois. The first press room was the kitchen, and some of the printing equipment occupied the table between meals. Later the need for a monthly magazine was made evident from the feedback of many recipients of gospel tracts who asked for a steady diet of encouragement and instruction. The first issue of Grace & Truth Magazine rolled off the presses in 1933 as much needed “food for the family of God.” It has continued uninterrupted to the present time. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers ‘for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’.Many of their writings are freely available online at Stem publishing.com.

    'OUTLINES OF TRUTH’ (Being Bible Talks on Important Subjects Connected with the Foundations of Christianity) explains many foundational scriptural truths in an easy to understand way, and includes subjects such as : Faith & Works, Peace & Deliverance, Safety & Sanctification, Law & Grace, ‘Sin’ & ‘Sins’, The New Nature & the Old, ‘Blood’& ‘Water’, Grace & Discipleship, Election & Free Grace, Israel & the Church, Worship & Service, The Rapture & the Appearing. This valuable book supplies sound Biblical teaching for today’s Church among whom is much misunderstanding and lack of scriptural knowledge. A word about the Author: Frank Binford Hole (1874-1964) was a man of God. The conspicuous feature of his life was that he lived and laboured in the Christian Faith, and was constrained to do so by personal experience of the love of Christ. At an early age he became a full-time worker in the service of Christ in UK Assemblies. His gifts from God manifested themselves in three different ways: firstly as evangelist; secondly as teacher; and lastly as publisher. He wrote several valuable books, “Outlines of Truth”, "The Great Salvation" and another one equally valuable "Foundations of the Faith". He also edited and contributed many articles to a small periodical called "Edification" and for many years "Scripture Truth". This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series.

    ‘Jehoshaphat – Worldliness’ looks at the life of this Old Testament King of Judah and encourages us to examine ourselves in the light of his mistakes. When a Christian enters into connection with the world, he lays himself open to be "persuaded" by the world, to enter upon an unchristian course of action. "Keep thyself pure" is a valuable admonition for us all."Come out from among them, and be ye separate" Let us ask ourselves, Can our association with the world go hand in hand with our fellowship with God? This is really the question. The man who conforms to the world will be the enemy of Christ, and the enemy of Christ's people. It cannot be otherwise. "The friendship of the world is enmity with God; whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."How fully was this proved in the case of king Jehoshaphat! He became the friend and companion of Ahab, one of the most evil kings in history. The beginning of evil is like the letting out of water. Small beginnings lead to fearful results. Dear Christian reader, let us, with the Lord's help, endeavor to shake off the world's influence, and purge ourselves from its ways. We have no idea how insidiously it creeps in upon us., "Take heed what ye do." "Come out, and be separate." We cannot, by any possibility, mix ourselves up with the world, and allow ourselves to be governed and led by its maxims and principles, without suffering in our own souls, and marring our testimony. A word about the author: C. H. Mackintosh,was born in October 1820, in County Wicklow, Ireland, and is generally known as C.H.M., which is all that appeared on the title pages of his major writings. He was one of the major evangelists and Brethren authors of the 19th century. CHM was converted when he was 18, he briefly farmed and then ran a school before fully committing himself in 1854 to serving the Lord whom he so fervently loved. The rest of his life he spent very actively preaching the gospel to the unsaved and presenting sound ministry both in writing and preaching, traveling widely in the British Isles and living in a number of towns in Ireland and England. He was very active in the Ulster Revival of 1859. His writings are easily understood and were particularly influential among North American evangelicals. He also edited for a number of years a magazine called Things New & Old, which had a worldwide distribution and reputation. He was called home on November 2nd 1896. Publisher’s note.

    "In ‘Elijah’, Hamilton Smith traces the major events of the life of Elijah, the Prophet of God, with all the highs and lows in his work as a prophet. Elijah knew only too well the inadequacies of his own humanity - he was a man who was “subject to like passions as we are”. But Elijah knew the living God, was conscious of His presence, and was aware that prayer brought him into contact with the greatest power in the universe. By experience, he comes to understand that the God of creation, power and judgment, is supremely the God of grace. At each step, the author presents clear, practical lessons for Christians today as they too seek to present God's word with authority to an indifferent or antgonistic world. “-may we too catch the spirit of Elijah and learn to walk in separation from evil, in dependence on God, and devotedness to God; while waiting to be rapt to glory at the coming of the Lord.” H.S. A word about the author: Hamilton Smith 1862 -1943 was born in Barnes, Surrey, England. By 1901, living in Sutton, Surrey, with his wife Rachel and young family, he had entered full-time upon the task of building up the church of God. He and his cousin F.B. Hole were linked in business before their full-time ministry for the Lord. Later in life, he moved to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, His personal ministry was delivered in the United Kingdom, but his written ministry continues to be read worldwide. Hamilton Smith is a much loved expositor of the Scriptures. He wrote on many different portions of the Bible but is probably best known for his character studies of Abraham, Elijah, Elisha, Joseph, and Ruth which have been published in several languages. Hamilton Smith's written expositions of the Scriptures are brief, clear and to the point. This volume is one of a series of Old Testament character studies for which he is probably best known. He was on the editorial committee of Scripture Truth magazine at its founding in 1909, and contributed many articles to this magazine. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers ‘for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’. We pray that the rich mine of spiritual truths in their writings may be opened up to you that you may be built up in your most holy faith.

    In From Egypt to Canaan John Ritchie traces the epic journey of the Israelites from their redemption by blood all the way to the promised land. These incidents in Israel's history are illustrative pictures or ‘types’ (in the book of Hebrews they are called patterns, figures, and shadows) from which God will teach us important spiritual lessons if we are willing to learn them. It is profitable to hear about these things to learn again of the power and grace of God, the love and sacrifice of our Savior, and the never-failing resources available for us as we travel through the wilderness of this world. Christ is the key to all these parts of Holy Scripture for everything was pointing forward to Him. This was an unholy and often stiff-necked people (like ourselves) amenable to the wrath of a holy God, yet how wonderful it is to see how God would find a way by which He might dwell among them and fulfill His purposes about them. “Egypt is a figure of this world where Satan rules, where the flesh is ministered to, and where it has plenty to feed upon, and where as sinners we are found to be the servants of Satan.” “Canaan is not really a type of what a believer enters after death when he departs to be with Christ, for there we shall be at rest. In Canaan we must handle the sword and shield, as in Ephesians 6, in conflict with wicked spirits who would dispute our right and hinder our enjoyment of what grace has given to us…” The short chapters of this book are self-contained studies of topics of spiritual value. In the belief that such teaching is timeless in its relevance and applicability, this is a new edition in a style, format and language suited to the present day.

    In ‘WHERE IS YOUR TREASURE?’ William MacDonald explains that God’s will is that our lives should be a perpetual crisis of dependence on Him. We defeat His will in our lives when we lay up treasures on earth. “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21 But the question may arise, “How can I make this practical in my own life? What should I do?” The life of faith speaks loudly to unbelievers and to other Christians. It testifies to all that there is a God in heaven who answers prayer. Faith is the opposite of sight; when you can see, you can’t trust. To hoard wealth makes the life of faith impossible. The life of faith does not follow automatically when a person becomes a Christian. It requires deliberate action on his part. Enjoyment of riches is not found in possessing them but in using them for the glory of God and for the good of others. A word about the author: William MacDonald (1917 – 2007) William (Bill) MacDonald was born in Massachusetts. His parents were from the Isle of Lewis and when he was six years old, his family moved to Stornoway, Scotland, later moving back to Massachusetts.

    JND was a prodigious writer who had a major influence on evangelical thinking in the 19th Century. Here are just a few of his articles. Man Fallen and The Seed of the Woman, Genesis Chapter 3: “Satan is active, and his power consists in producing distrust, and this where there is happiness and intimate relation with God - to darken, and, if possible, destroy all in the heart. Eve listened to and believed Satan, in place of listening to God and believing Him; and this is just what man is ever doing, but God pronounces judgment on the enemy, and in the midst of it the revelation is made of the Saviour, for the suffering second Man, the woman's Seed, is Son of God, the true God, and eternal life, who became man, to die for sinners and destroy the works of the devil.” God's House and The Way, Psalm 84: “Would not such a thought as being in God's court, as men dwelling in God's own house, greatly delight and surprise us, if heard for the first time and its meaning understood? It is this new thing - that men should dwell in God's own house; not be there merely as a visitor, but a dweller. Is the hope of the Lord's coming your daily delight? Does it influence you in the ten thousand details of your every-day life? Or are you so walking hand in hand with The World that the very thought of His Coming fills you with shame?” Death with Christ , Romans Chapter 6: “The application of ‘Christ dead and risen’ to the believer's walk, The motive to, yea ground of, a Christian life is that we died with Christ; and we have life through a dead Christ, with whom we died. "Walk in newness of life." "Have your fruit unto holiness." But the great doctrine of grace is - saved by a mediator.” A word about the author: John Nelson DARBY (1800 -1882) came from an Anglo-Irish landowning family seated at Leap Castle, King's County, Ireland. His middle name was given in recognition of his godfather and family friend, Lord Nelson. Born at Westminster, he was educated at Westminster School, then at Trinity College, Dublin. He was studying for Law when he was gloriously saved and felt that being a lawyer was inconsistent with his religious belief, so he studied divinity instead. Around 1830 he joined an interdenominational meeting of believers (including Anthony Norris Groves, Edward Cronin, J. G. Bellett) who met to "break bread" together in Dublin as a symbol of their unity in Christ. By 1832, this group had grown and began to identify themselves as a distinct Christian assembly. As they travelled and began new assemblies in Ireland and England, they formed the movement now commonly called ‘Brethren’. He used his classical skills to translate the Bible from Hebrew and Greek texts into several languages. In English he wrote a Synopsis of the Bible and many other scholarly religious articles. He wrote hymns and poems, the most famous being, "Man of Sorrows”.

    The Tabernacle in the Wilderness was published in 1891 and since then from its pages several generations of believers have been introduced to the rich pastures of Old Testament typical teaching. This new revised edition has been commissioned and produced in the belief that such teaching is timeless in its relevance and applicability. It is presented in a style, format and language suited to modern day readers, especially for young believers in the twenty first century. As the different sections and structures of the Tabernacle are described, some very practical teaching for our daily lives is given, ranging from our need of salvation from sin to our present service for God. In addition to the very practical issues raised for our individual and corporate lives, the typical teaching of the Tabernacle all points to Christ, of course. He is the great subject of all Scripture. As we study the materials of the construction, the fabrics and the colours, the priests and the sacrifices, we are helped and encouraged to appreciate, worship and adore the person of our Lord and Saviour. This was the overwhelming objective of the original author, as it is the desire of all who have been involved in the production of this twenty first century edition. A word about the author: John Ritchie (1853 -1930) was born in Old Meldrum Aberdeen, Scotland in 1853 and was saved in 1871. He soon was engaged in full time preaching. In 1877 he married, and in 1879 moved to the town of Kilmarnock where he became engaged in writing and printing. He set up the publishing house still known as John Ritchie Ltd. His best known works are “The Tabernacle in the Wilderness” and “From Egypt to Canaan”. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers ‘for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’ This edition is produced with the kind permission of copyright holders John Ritchie Ltd and is available in printed form from www.ritchiechristianmedia.co.uk Words by the Wayside, 2015.

    In ‘Jonathan and his Times’, W.W. Fereday examines the life and times of Jonathan, son of King Saul. Although a man of faith, who loved David as his own soul and performed many daring exploits in the name of Jehovah, he was a man of mixed principles, a double-minded man who never lived up to his spiritual potential. Jonathan’s weakness is clearly shown: he was not prepared to follow David in his rejection. Fereday explains, “The Spirit records the weaknesses and shortcomings of those who have trodden the path of faith before us, for our present instruction and blessing.” We are here exhorted to review our Christian path. “What have we really surrendered for the One we profess to love? What cherished idols have we abandoned for Him? To what extent have we shared His rejection? Jonathan parted with David in the time of crisis; do we find it difficult to give the Lord Jesus Christ the place of absolute supremacy in our hearts and lives?” A word about the author: William Woldridge Fereday (1863 - 1959) was born in England. He was saved at the age of 16 and almost immediately started to preach and he spent the whole of his life in the study and exposition of the Scriptures, travelled extensively and spent a considerable time in Scotland and the continent of Europe. His written ministry is well known for being brief and succinct as well as precise and accurate and always scripturally sound and Christ-centred. He has written many articles and booklets which include a very profitable series of Scripture Character studies. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers ‘for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ’.

    The Christian Life is a life commenced in faith, continued in patience, and consummated by perseverance. It is a Divine life into which only those born again through the word of truth enter. It is an eternal life, for "I give unto My sheep eternal life and they shall never perish," says the Good Shepherd. It is possessed by every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ simply because he or she is a believer in Him. It is not at all an attainment, but the gift of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. It is not a renovation of human nature but a new life; not a mere reformation but a regeneration by God the Holy Spirit. Strictly stated the real Christian life is the life of Christ lived in the Christian. Here then, briefly, we review the open secret of the devotional Christian life Have I been forgiven much? Do I love much? Do I practically own Him as Lord of my life? Do I do the things which He says? These are the questions which those who wish to know the joy of the Christian life must face for themselves. But Praise the Lord, we need not be alarmed, for we can count on Him to do exceeding abundantly above all we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.

    In ‘Christ the Way, the Truth, the Life’ (John Chapter 14 verse 6) William Kelly clearly brings out the Gospel message and the centrality of Christ in all things.The Lord Jesus Christ said “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” The WAY - Man is lost, and the world is as much of a wilderness as the sands of Arabia to a traveller who has lost his way. The Lord Jesus Christ came to seek and to save the lost. Jesus says, "I am the Way," and it is sure, unfailing. He is the Way. We have nothing to do but to take the way. The TRUTH -The truth is the revelation of God, the manifestation of everything else, in Christ. In short, He manifests every one and every thing exactly as each is. The LIFE - How deeply we need the life of Christ, in order that we may live to God, How plain it is that the whole practical walk of believers flows from life in Christ, God declares that He has given me, if a believer, another nature, new life in Christ. Nicodemus had to learn that he not only needed to hear what Jesus had to teach - he needed to be born afresh and have eternal life. A word about the Author : William Kelly (1820 – 1906) was born in Millisle, County Down, Ireland. Left fatherless at a young age, he was educated at Trinity College, Dublin where he excelled. Much of his life was spent in Guernsey and then Blackheath near London.He is well known for being a friend of John Nelson Darby and editing many of his books. His supreme delight was in ministering in spiritual things to those whom he described as ‘the few despised ones of Christ's flock’. For many years he edited the ‘Bible Treasury’ which is still in print today. Publisher’s note: This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series.
