    "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.

    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.

    Mephibosheth, or, The Kindness of God. In this beautiful exposition of the unmerited kindness of King David toward the poor lame orphan Mephibosheth, we see a picture of the kindness of God, through Jesus Christ. The condition of fallen man, the wondrous grace of God in His kindness to poor lost sinners and the privileges of conferred sonship - “and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually” - are clearly brought out by this gifted expositor. A word about the author: Charles Stanley (1821-1890), of Rotherham, England, was left an orphan at the age of four. Converted when fourteen, that year he preached his first message. At age twenty-three, with meager capital, he had begun his own hardware business in Sheffield. Then the businessman met Captain Wellesly, (the nephew of ""the Iron Duke"" of Wellington). Under his gracious teaching, the Bible became a new book to him. It was his daily study, and ""he grew in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."" His favorite Old Testament story was of Mephibosheth, the orphan who was tragically crippled. Speaking of his message on Mephibosheth, he remarked: ""I believe the Lord rarely ever led me to preach from Mephibosheth without souls being converted”. 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. Words by the Wayside, 2014.

    As JB Stoney explores the experiences of Jonah and others in ‘Out of Death into Life’, he shows us that “WILL is the real cause of the restlessness, and of the absence of full joy in souls. …. the only true place of happiness for a believer is to be without a will of his own….” and how the enjoyment of our salvation depends on us appropriating the death of Christ. What did Eve, Jonah, the Rich Young Ruler and many, many others in scripture have in common? They had a will of their own that was against God; God wanted them to go to the left and they wanted to go to the right. Even the Apostle Paul, who had thought himself so incomparably good, had found that he had a will that was against God, (so that he calls himself afterwards the chief of sinners). But after he appropriated the death of Christ “He has been turned round, as it were; he has learned that the old Saul has gone in the cross…. It is not only that his sins are gone, but he himself is a gone man, gone in the death of Christ. He has gone to his own funeral in that sense, and is glad to be free of himself.” A word about the author: James Butler Stoney (1814 – 1897) was born in Co. Tipperary, Ireland and entered Trinity College, Dublin, at the young age of fifteen. In 1831 men were dying of cholera all around him in Dublin. He was suddenly taken ill and, sure he was going to die and realizing he was a sinner on the very brink of a lost eternity, he called upon the Lord Jesus Christ alone for Salvation and was gloriously saved. He left off studying for law and joined the Divinity Class at Trinity College, Dublin, hoping to study for four years and then be ordained. His family were very angry, as they thought his fine talents and opportunities were being thrown away. But during those four years he was studying the Scrip¬tures with all the earnestness of a soul that had learned that unseen things are for eternity, and the seen things of this life are passing away. He never was ordained, and became part of an early ‘Brethren’ Assembly, ‘gathered to the Lord’s Name’. He has written a book called "Discipline in the School of God," dealing with the Old Testament characters, and contributed to several periodicals including ‘A voice to the Faithful’. A fervent, impressive speaker, he spoke somewhere every day and travelled much around Great Britain and Ireland, teaching and preaching.

    Our Present Condition and our Hope by F.G. Patterson shows the believer as to the past, a suffering, dead and risen Christ; as to the present, the association of the people of God with Him in a pathway of suffering and rejection; and as to the future, His coming again in glory, and taking to Him His great power to reign, and our association with Him in His glory. OUR PRESENT CONDITION: The Lord left his servants to carry on His heavenly mission here below. He set “every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch,” He says, “What I say unto you, I say unto all, Watch.” Our blessed occupation here is “To serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven” In one way or another, He has given us something to do for Him, and He is coming back to ascertain how each is discharging the duty given him, and at an “hour ye think not.” Therefore ‘Let your loins be girded, and your lights burning.’ Our HOPE: The Lord will come again in power and great glory - the great event which will bring about all this glory for which He waits and we wait. It is near, beloved brethren; the heart feels conscious that it is so; and the present action of the Holy Spirit marks it as very close at hand. By examining the two letters to the Thessalonians, F.G Patterson reminds us of what we have to look forward to. He also shows us that the ‘Coming’ and the ‘Appearing’ are two entirely different things, as are the ‘Great White Throne’ and the ‘Judgement Seat of Christ’. Publisher’s note.

    Preaching Christ – What is it? Christianity is not a set of abstractions — a number of dogmas — a system of doctrines. It is pre-eminently a religion of living facts, of divine realities — a religion which finds its centre in a divine Person, the Man Christ Jesus. He is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. From His divine and glorious Person all truth radiates. He is the living fountain from which all the streams issue forth in fullness, power and blessing. “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.” In this paper CHM explores Christ as a Test, as a Victim and as a Model, and asks the solemn question which still remains to be answered — answered by the world — answered by the individual sinner — “What have you done with the Son of God? A word about the author: C. H. Mackintosh, (1820 -1896) was born 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, travelling 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 they 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. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series.

    '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. 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’.

    ‘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 TRUE DISCIPLESHIP William MacDonald highlights some principles of New Testament discipleship and challenges every genuine Christian believer. He makes clear that nothing less than an all-out commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ is required of us. The Saviour seeks those who will give Him first place in their lives. “The Saviour repeatedly said, “whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it”. In fact, this saying of His is found in the four Gospels more frequently than almost anything else. Why is it repeated so often? Is it not because it sets forth one of the most fundamental principles of the Christian life, namely, that life hugged for self is life lost, but life poured out for Him is life found, saved, enjoyed, and kept for eternity?“ To be a true disciple is to be a bondslave of Jesus Christ and to find that His service is perfect freedom. There is liberty in the step of all who can say, “I love my master…I will not go out free” “The Lord Jesus still calls, as He has ever called, for men and women to follow Him heroically and sacrificially… There cannot be divided allegiance… A disciple cannot live for two worlds.” William Macdonald quotes Lucy R Mayer: “Master, forgive, and inspire us anew; Banish our worldliness, help us to ever Live with eternity’s values in view.” As well as the ‘original’ True Discipleship, the two booklets ‘Where is your Treasure?’ and ‘Lord Break me’ also by William Macdonald are included in this new version. 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. Speaking of the Lord Jesus, the Bible says, “the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked” (1 John 2:6). Bill wrote in his commentary, “Jesus’ life, as set forth in the Gospels, is our pattern and guide. It is not a life which we can live in our own strength or energy, but is only possible in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our responsibility is to turn our lives over to Him unreservedly, and allow Him to live His life in and through us.

    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.

    The Forgotten Command: Be Holy is a clarion call for all Christians to follow their Master’s command and to Be Holy.In the world of today, where holiness is set aside and considered to be outdated, the vital truth of holy living by the Christian has never been more relevant. Christlikeness produces Holiness, and William MacDonald stresses its importance as he looks at every aspect of the Christian life. “The moment we are saved, we are given a position of holiness before God. Because we are in Christ, we have a holy standing. Our responsibility is to see that our practice corresponds to our position, our state to our standing.In the area of holiness, there is a mysterious mingling of the divine and the human. God wants all of us to be holy. Only He can make us holy. And He will give us the necessary power. But He will not do it without our participation…It is misleading to tell Christians that holiness is by faith alone. It creates the impression that they can sit back and become Christlike without any exer¬tion on their part. It blithely overlooks the hundreds of exhortations in the New Testament directed to their will and calling for their obedience. Salvation is by faith alone, but holiness is by faith and works.”This book makes compelling and searching listening for those who are serious about obeying the Forgotten Command: Be Holy.A word about the author:William MacDonald (1917 – 2007) William (Bill) MacDonald was born in 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”.
