NEW RELEASE: Sincerity and the Way to Heaven

We would like to announce our newest title – Sincerity and the Way to Heaven: The Story of a Young Man Searching for the Truth in a World of Religious Confusion by Benjamin Franklin and Daniel Sommer – is now available.

Sincerity and the Way to Heaven (cover)Benjamin Franklin (1812-1878) was an influential leader among conservative brethren in the Restoration Movement. Much of his influence came through his work as editor of the American Christian Review – a paper he started in 1856 and continued as the editor until his death.

Daniel Sommer (1850-1940), a protégé of Franklin, also became a leading voice opposing innovations like the missionary society and instrumental music among the disciples. A few years after Franklin’s death, he purchased the American Christian Review and continued that work – changing the paper’s name to Octographic Review, and then later Apostolic Review.

Sincerity and the Way to Heaven contains two stories about a young man searching for the truth in a world of religious confusion. The first is Franklin’s original story – Sincerity Seeking the Way to Heaven – about how this young man learned to obey the gospel. The second is the sequel that Sommer wrote to the original – Sincerity Teaching the Way to Heaven – which discusses how this young man dealt with the innovations that had crept in among the disciples in the 19th century.

NEW RELEASE: Christian Unity

We would like to announce our newest title – Christian Unity: How Promoted, How Destroyed, Faith and Opinion by David Lipscomb – is now available.

Christian Unity (cover)David Lipscomb (1831-1917) was one of the most influential gospel preachers in the South during his lifetime – mostly through his work as the editor of the Gospel Advocate, a work he did for over fifty years. In addition to his editorial writings and gospel preaching, he taught daily Bible classes as the Nashville Bible School which he founded in 1891. He also served as the President of the Board of Trustees of the Fanning Orphan School from its establishment in 1884 until his death.

In Christian Unity, Lipscomb addressed the problem of division in the church and how it was caused by Christians believing their own opinions were equal to or greater than the word of God. This material examines the New Testament and the teachings of early Restoration Movement figures to contrast the difference between faith and opinion.

The updated edition also includes Lipscomb’s comments on Romans 14 and Ephesians 4:1-6.

We are happy to announce that our newest book – Competing Worldviews: A Collection of Essays Contrasting the Biblical and Humanistic Worldviews by Luci Partain – is now available!

Competing Worldviews (cover)Download a sample of the book!

What you believe in determines your worldview. If you believe that the God of the Bible made us and the world that we live in giving us laws to live by, that worldview will govern every decision that you make.

Your worldview defines your reason for living.

What is your worldview?

With a love for God, a respect for the truth of His word, and a concern for the souls of others, sister Luci Partain has written extensively about cultivating a Biblical worldview and warning about the dangerous influence of the humanistic worldview that has spread throughout our society. This book contains a collection of essays contrasting these two competing worldviews. It is vital that we understand the difference between them and choose wisely which one to follow.

NEW RELEASE: Church History

We are happy to announce that our newest book – Church History: The Church, the Falling Away, and the Restoration by Donald Townsley – is now available!

Church History (cover)Download a sample of the book!

A study of church history helps us understand present-day conditions in the religious world and the origin of the various denominations. It also helps us to have a greater appreciation for the church in the New Testament. This study should serve as a warning against the introduction of innovations and errors, no matter how innocent and insignificant they may appear.

Donald Townsley (1931-2013) was a preacher of the gospel of Christ who devoted himself to that work for over fifty years. In Church History, Townsley outlines the history of the church, departures from the faith that led to the formation of various denominations, and attempts at reformation and later restoration. Special emphasis is given to the Restoration Movement and various issues that impacted churches of Christ in the 20th century.

Townsley’s ability to condense a vast amount of information into a concise volume arranged in an easy to digest outline makes this book a valuable reference work for anyone interested in a history of the church, the falling away, and the restoration.
