A Short Meditation on the Moral Glory of the Lord Jesus Christ
  Picture
Publisher: John Ritchie, 0 Kilmarnock, Scotland
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall No date; ca. 1950 (?). It is the Moral Glory, or, as we speak, the Character of the Lord Jesus, on which I meditate in these pages. All went up to God as a sacrifice of sweet savour. Every expression of Himself in every measure, however small, and in whatever relationship it was rendered, was incense. In His Person (but surely there only) man was reconciled to God. In Him God recovered His complacency in man, and that too was unspeakable gain; for in Jesus, man is more to God than He would have been in an eternity of Adam innocency. But in this Meditation on the Moral Glory of the Lord Jesus, it is most surely but a small part of that wondrous subject I affect to have reached. I may give occasion to fruitful thoughts in the souls of others, and that will be good. The Lord's Person I assume - God and man in one Christ. His Work I also assume; that suffering service, or blood-shedding, accomplished on the Cross, whereby reconciliation is perfected, and where it is preached for the acceptance and joy of faith." 93 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

Publisher: Whittet & Shepperson, Printers, 0 Richmond, VA
Book. Book condition: Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall No date; ca. early 20th century. "Through his masterpiece and best monument, "The Days of Makemie, ' published by the Presbyterian Board of Publication in 1885, Dr. Bowen created a new interest in Rev. Francis Makemie, the chief founder of the Presbyterian Church in America, and thereby started the movement which resulted in the erection twenty-three years later (1903) of the splendid granite monument to Makemie, in Accomac County, Virginia.. After his researches above, made when he was pastor of certain of the Makemie churches in that part of the Eastern Shore, Dr. Bowen returned to pastoral work in the West and far South, and when he had done much further ministerial and literary work there and was retiring from his labors and enjoying in his old age a well-deserved rest, was recalled in 1908 to resume his work in the Old Mother Church at Rehoboth, Maryland, not far from the Makemie Monument. Since his last return to the Eastern Shore, he delivered in 1908 the chief address at the dedication of the Makemie Monument, and also in 1909 delivered the chief address at the dedication in the upper part of Worcester County, Maryland, of a Monument to Colonel John Postley, the first to leave a permanent endowment fun d for the cause of public education in that county. Dr. Bowen has of late in addition to these two notable addresses written sometimes seriously but more often for his own amusement and that of certain of his friends, many verses concerning Makemie and his early churches and of certain people and events in this part of the Eastern Shore.." 203 pages.

Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "The following is a selection from the sermons of the Rev. Andrew Gray, the illustrious young divine of the Church of Scotland, who finished his course in this world at the early age of 22 years, in the year 1656..It would seem there was scarcely ever a sermon that this youth preached but was written and preserved as a precious rellict of him. He had been so admired and followed by serious Christians, far and near, that any who could write shorthand were greedy to catch every word which dropped from his lips. His sermons show that he understood rightly how to divide the word of truth, to separate between the precious and the vile, the converted and the unconverted, the sincere and the hypocrite, and to give each of them their proper share. His expressions are well adapted to affect the hearts of his hearers, especially such as believe the gospel.." 128 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.

Presbyterians on Delmarva: The History of the New Castle Presbytery
  Picture
Publisher: Wicomico Presbyterian Church, 1972 Salisbury, MD
Book. Book condition: Good. Soft cover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall "This history of the New Castle Presbytery is based almost entirely on the records of that Presbytery and the Presbyteries that once existed with its present bounds, as those records are found within the recorded minutes. While of necessity there are references to the churches in Virginia and Pennsylvania that once were connected with New Castle Presbytery, the emphasis is on the life of the churches in Delaware and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. This volume is not aimed at the professional scholar, but at the reader who desires to have a glimpse into the life of the Presbyterian Church on Delmarva, and who wishes to know what the issues were and how those issues have changed over the centuries. While I have sought to record the more interesting events of the past three centuries, I hope that I have also captured the mood and the direction of the Presbytery and its churches.."

If at any point a departure from the literal may appear, we trust it will be seen at se3cond thought that the deductions are legitimate and subdued, and the expansion is logical and restrained.

The first was, to exhibit fully and fairly the views of the great body of evangelical Christians, more especially of those embracing the system of doctrines commonly called Calvinistic, upon the interesting subject of Infant Salvation...The second object was, to furnish consolation to those sorrowing parents who had been bereaved by the removal of their little ones.." 352 pages.

23.   Sproull, Rev. Thomas
Prelections on Theology
  Picture
Publisher: Myers, Shinkle & Co., 1882 Pittsburgh, PA
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Rev. Thomas Srroull, D.D., is Profe3ssor of Theology in the Reformed Presbyterian Seminary, Allegheny, Pennsylvania. "By the constitution of the Seminary of the Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States, adopted in 1809, it was made the duty of the Professor of Systematic and Polemic Theology 'to deliver a series of Lectures on Divinity, pursuing the plan laid down in Reformation Principles exhibited - the Testimony of the Church.' This course was for the most part followed by those who occupied that chair in the Seminary. In 1858, when, by the resignation of the Professor in this department, I was left alone, it was assigned to me. Deferring to the judgment of those who marked out the course, I delivered lectures on the Testimony through several successive sessions of the Seminary, following in general the order prescribed. My experience, however, satisfied me that some deviation from that order would be to the advantage both of myself and of the students. Accordingly, at the beginning of the session in the fall of 1873, I commenced a course of prelections, which extended to the close of the next session. In this course I omitted those chapters in the Testimony that are included under the heads of church government and worship, to be exhibited in their proper departments, which were also assigned to me. Nor did I confine myself to the order in which the doctrines and duties in the several chapters are presented. What seemed to me to be the logical order, was that which I followed, believing that the arrangement that gives the instructor the clearest view of the truths taught, will be the best for those who are instructed. These prelections are now offered to the public. They were carefully prepared, and have been re-written and revised with a view to their publication. A text-book in which the distinctive principles of the church are exhibited in connection with the general doctrines of the Christian faith, is certainly needed. The was seen and provided for by the founders of the Seminary in assigning that position to the Testimony. Their direction I have endeavored to observe in its spirit, and have given prominence to those principles, the knowledge and maintenance of which are essential to the life and efficiency of the witnessing church.." viii + 455 pages. Book is in GOOD condition; some wear to cover; book is still well bound with clean text pages. No dust jacket.
