A Sure Guide to Heaven by Joseph Alleine

In A Sure Guide to Heaven, Joseph Alleine, an English Puritan Nonconformist pastor, pours out his heart in concern for the unconverted. "But from where shall I fetch my argument? With what shall I win them? O that I could tell! I would write to them in tears, I would weep out every argument, I would empty my veins for ink, I would petition them on my knees." His devotion reaches to the very heart of the reader, prompting us to question our own concern for the lost and motivates us to action-both on our knees in prayer and in the streets where we live our daily lives.
The Gospel in a Map by Joseph Alleine
Walk hand-in-hand with this great Puritan pastor as you read The Gospel in a Map. This compilation of verses taken from Holy Scripture leads you along a path of Truth, Hope and Deepest Grace, where you will rediscover the God who loves you and your own heart of devotion for Him.

"Alleine's book [A Sure Guide to Heaven] is an excellent example of someone who has poured out his heart to win souls for Christ. Alleine uses arguments coupled with impassioned pleas for the sinner to come to Christ. If only more of us were as alarmed as Alleine about the souls of the unconverted!" -Joel Radford

"This [The Gospel in a Map] is the most excellent and concise summary of God's good will and love towards mankind that I have ever read. Basically all of scripture condensed into a few pages. Joseph Alleine was a most excellent and wise Christian." – Reviewer
Heaven Opened by Richard Alleine
"Nothing is more precious to a believer than the promises of the covenant. But our knowledge of the riches of the covenant is impoverished," commented Richard Alleine. In Heaven Opened, Alleine helps us to exchange our poverty for riches, explaining that if you lay hold of the good news from Heaven, you "will recover all you have lost, ransom from you death, redeem you from hell, and advance you to a more sure and blessed condition than the original state from which you have fallen."

A preacher of great eloquence, Alleine was a faithful expositor of the Scriptures and a man who was enraptured by the covenant promises and blessings of God to his church. After serving as rector at Batcombe for 20 years, Alleine was expelled from his pulpit for adhering to his Puritan beliefs. Despite this hardship, Alleine eventually resettled in Frome Selwood and preached there until his death. While Heaven Opened is his most notable work, all of his writings reveal his concern that believers understand their blessings in Christ; only through this understanding can we see true and significant change.
Rejoicing in Jesus by Robert Asty
In this classic work, Asty provides a timeless exposition of Habakkuk 3:18, "Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation." In Rejoicing in the Lord Jesus in all Cases and Conditions, the author reminds us to "let things go how they will in the world," because, "[joy] is not in the creature, it is not upon earth, but it is in heaven..." Rejoice in Christ, Asty reminds us, regardless of the circumstances Christ allows in our lives. His focus on the gospel is unwavering, and he communicates the importance of the gospel to all of life in an engaging and timeless way.

“Asty is even more tenderhearted than he is wise; his compassion spills over many pages of this book. Asty's words are ones of comfort, and the result is an unbelievably encouraging book that should strengthen the heart of any believer.” -Chip Webb
The Great Duty of Resignation by William Bates
“Thus by the fixed contemplation of its trouble, the soul is distracted from “Thus by the fixed contemplation of its trouble, the soul is distracted from its heavenly original, and from pursuing its blessed end…. This obstinate grief is inconsistent with a resigned frame of spirit.” Here, in The Great Duty of Resignation, Presbyterian minister William Bates, who was driven out of his pulpit for adhering to Puritan doctrine, shares his life-learned conviction that our minds and hearts must be fixed on hope in Jesus, not in the hard circumstances of life.

Bates’ devotion to the gospel and his winning style make his works both memorable and inspiring.
Forgiveness: the Application
by William Bates

In Forgiveness, Bates sets before us our desperate need for forgiveness coupled with God’s ability to forgive, then proclaims that “the power to pardon without an inclination to it, affords no relief in the agonies of an accusing conscience, and the terrors of eternal judgment.” Praise God! Indeed, He has the inclination to forgive! In this straight-forward work, the reader is reminded of His Father God, ready and waiting to forgive.

In Forgiveness: the Application, Bates warns those who would “indulge themselves in a course of sin upon the presumption of an easy pardon” with the reminder that “to pardon sin is an act of greater power than to create the World.”
The Sure Trial of Uprightness by William Bates
In The Sure Trial of Uprightness, Bates tackles the challenge of reconciling David’s sin against Uriah with his proclamation of uprightness in Psalm 18:23. The reader will discover the secret to embracing God’s gracious acceptance despite our often-imperfect journey of sanctification.

"To read the work of a Puritan doctor of the soul is to enter a rich world of spiritual theology to feed the mind, heart-searching analysis to probe the conscience, Christ-centered grace to transform the heart, and wise counsel to direct the life."
-Sinclair Ferguson
Two Great Works by Thomas Brooks
A Nonconformist preacher, Thomas Brooks served as a chaplain in the British Civil War. In 1648 he took a ministry position in London only to be ejected from his pulpit in 1660 due to his Puritan convictions. He remained in London and preached when he was able, even though to do so put him at great personal risk. When the Great Plague and Great Fire broke out in London, Brooks worked unceasingly to help those in need. Finally in 1672 he was granted a license to preach in Lime Street where he ministered for a number of years.
A Word in Season to Suffering Saints by Thomas Brooks
Brooks’ work, A Word in Season to Suffering Saints, allows the reader to experience firsthand the concern and compassion that characterized Brooks’ ministry. Brooks saw and experienced many hardships throughout his life, but his focus on the gospel and its glories enabled him to compose encouraging works such as A Cabinet of Choice Jewels and The Unsearchable Riches of Christ, which are included in E4’s original work, Two Great Works of Thomas Brooks.

“The mere marginal notes of Brooks are more valuable than pages of ordinary writers…Of all the Puritans he is the most readable.”
-C.H. Spurgeon
The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs

One of the most distinguished English Independents and a Westminster Divine, Jeremiah Burroughs was a faithful and zealous pastor who worked unceasingly for the unity and peace of the church. The motto on his study door was “variety of opinion and unity of opinion are not incompatible.” He strove to bring peace between differing Protestant factions as well as to the hearts of individual believers struggling during what Burroughs called “sad and sinking times.” Burroughs excelled at communicating truth in an understandable and accessible way. Perhaps his most famous work, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment showcases Burroughs’ passion for imparting peace and contentment to believers through a focus on Christ in the midst of difficult circumstances.

In his time he was called a “prince among preachers,” and this work is one of the most valuable jewels he gave the church.

“This book was life-changing for me! By the end of the book I understood God and my relationship to Him more deeply than through anything else I have read short of the Word.”
-Douglas Jones
A Door Unto Everlasting Life by Andrew Gray
One of the most highly regarded Scottish divines, Andrew Gray was also known as the “youngest Puritan,” and his short life was a shining light in a tumultuous and trying time. Gray was mightily used by God to win souls for the kingdom and to encourage spiritual awakening in believers. He died of fever at the age of 22, and one of his biographers said, “We may safely say that never in the history of our country did a man of his years make so deep a mark.” His works, such as A Door Unto Everlasting Life, reflect his heart for the lost and show his skill for presenting old truths in new ways and making messages practical and encouraging to his listeners.
Sermons by Andrew Gray
“Andrew Gray’s treatise on sanctification has an astounding amount of depth and spiritual maturity that is evident on every page. It is one of the great treasures on holy living from a spiritual giant of days gone by. I urge you to sit at the feet of Andrew Gray and plead with God to burn these truths into your heart and soul.”
-J. Adrian
The Christian’s Great Interest by William Guthrie

One of the Scottish Covenanters and protégé of Samuel Rutherford, William Guthrie had a vibrant love for his church and a great compassion for the lost. John Owen described Guthrie as “one of the greatest divines that ever wrote,” and Guthrie’s masterpiece is The Christian’s Great Interest. He helps the sincere shed uncertainty and warns the unbeliever against a false sense of security. In this work the reader finds warm pastoral concern for both believers and lost alike.

In his lifetime, Guthrie was imprisoned, scorned, and mocked for the sake of the gospel, but he never wavered in his faith, and his solid understanding of true assurance of salvation continues to be a blessing to the church today.

“This is an incredible book! Guthrie masterfully describes the characteristics of people who have a genuine interest in Christ. What is the evidence that a person knows Christ? Do you have doubts? What is the difference between true believers and pretenders? Guthrie answers these and many more questions. This is an essential book for all Christians.
-A. Wolverton
The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification by Walter Marshall

What Christian has not struggled with frustration at his lack of holiness, or feelings of apathy toward the same? In The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification, Walter Marshall brings hope and encouragement through a balanced and clear presentation of the biblical journey to sanctification. “Be sure,” he reminds us, “to seek for holiness of heart and life only in its due order, where God has placed it, after union with Christ, justification and the gift of the Holy Ghost and, in that order, seek it earnestly by faith as a very necessary part of your salvation.”

Walter Marshall was an English Presbyterian minister forced to leave his pulpit in 1662, along with many other Puritan ministers, because of his refusal to conform to the views of the Anglican Church. Despite this trial, Marshall remained faithful to his call to ministry and found another congregation that he faithfully pastored until his death. Marshall’s teachings are as true and vital today as they were over 400 years ago.

“The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification is a MUST read. It is the single-best book written on sanctification and the Christian life. I cannot encourage people enough to get this book and read it. Every believer should read this book. Get this book. Read it. Think about it. Study it. Digest it and then read it again. Your life will NEVER be the same!
-Amazon reviewer
The Bruised Reed by Richard Sibbes

“Sibbes never wastes the student’s time,” commented Spurgeon. “He scatters pearls and diamond with both hands.” Known as “the sweet dropper” and “the heavenly Doctor” because of the rich quality of his preaching and his godly life, Richard Sibbes was one of the most influential Puritans of the seventeenth century.

“It is a very hard thing to bring a dull and an evasive heart to cry with feeling for mercy,” says Sibbes in his work The Bruised Reed. For the hurting and oppressed, this gentle and persuasive work sheds God’s purposeful light upon our pain.

“Wow, what a powerfully encouraging and timeless message from Puritan pastor Richard Sibbes! This is an outstanding book for every Christian, but especially for a brother or sister in the Lord who is struggling in their faith or in life. It is a powerful and encouraging read!”
-Dan Panetti
