BEGINNER'S 3 PACK
Heaven Taken by Storm, Thomas Watson
This classic work is by one of the most beloved and most readable of all the English Puritans, Thomas Watson.
In our day of easy believism and cheap grace, this book stands apart. The author writes of the “holy violence” a person needs to put forth if he would enter heaven: violence to his sin and violence to his own nature.
He must storm the gates of heaven, in accordance with Matthew 11:12. This is not legalism, nor is it salvation by works. It is, as Jonathan Edwards described it, “pressing into the kingdom.”
This book, first published in 1669, has been retypeset and modernized by Dr. Don Kistler to be more “reader friendly.”
It is printed on acid-free paper and sewn together rather than glued, for a 200-300 year life.
The Fairest of Ten Thousand, Charles Spurgeon
Charles Spurgeon has been called “the Prince of Preachers” and “the last Puritan.” His many sermons are among the best in Christian literature.
“You will be captivated by the lofty way Spurgeon unfolds the real significance of marital love, the reverent way he honors Christ, and the genuine desire he has for the whole church to see our Lord in all His glory.”
— From the foreword by Phil Johnson
The Precious Things of God, Octavius Winslow
These pages address themselves pointedly and strongly to that essential principle of vital religion—the experimental. We really know as much of the gospel of Christ, and of the Christ of the gospel, as by the power of the Holy Ghost we have the experience of it in our souls....To apprehend, in some measure, the value, the glory, and the preciousness of the Lord Jesus, and, as a consequence, to esteem Him above all good, to reflect His image, to labor in His service—this is spiritual life.
The author elucidates such “precious” things as Christ, faith, trials, God’s thoughts, divine promises, the blood of Christ, the anointing of the Holy Spirit, God’s children, God’s Word, prayer, Christ’s sympathy with our infirmities, and the death of the saints.
