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.

An Awful Thing to Reject

The Great Commission of Jesus Christ

It is an awful thing, then, for a poor, helpless, perishing sinner to reject, even for a day or an hour, the overtures of Him who has all authority in heaven and on earth, and who will certainly judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom, when He “shall come in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel; who shall be punished with an everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power, when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe” (2 Thess. 1:7-10). Haste, then—

“Haste, O sinner, to be wise
Stay not for the morrow’s sun;
Wisdom warns thee from the skies,
All the paths of death to shun.”

NEW RELEASE: The Great Commission of Jesus Christ

We would like to announce our newest title – The Great Commission of Jesus Christ to His Twelve Apostles: Briefly Defined and Illustrated by Robert Milligan – is now available.

The Great Commission of Jesus Christ (cover)Robert Milligan (1814-1875) was born in Ireland and was brought to the United States by his parents in 1818. After becoming a member of the Presbyterian Church where his father was an elder, he learned the truth and in 1838 was baptized into Christ by Elder John Irvin of the church of Christ at Cane Ridge. During his life he labored as a professor at Bethany College and also served as co-editor of the Millennial Harbinger. Afterward he served as president of Kentucky University and was the head of the College of the Bible at that institution.

In The Great Commission of Jesus Christ, Milligan dissects the commission given by Jesus to His apostles. In it, he discusses the authority of Christ, the meaning of baptism, what disciples were to be taught, and the consequences of obedience.

NEW RELEASE: Atonement

We would like to announce our newest title – Atonement: An Exchange in the Millennial Harbinger (1840-1841) by Barton W. Stone and Alexander Campbell – is now available.

Atonement (cover)Barton W. Stone (1772-1844) and Alexander Campbell (1788-1866) were the two principle leaders of the Restoration Movement (also called the Stone-Campbell Movement). Both men exerted their influence through preaching and as editors of religious papers – The Christian Messenger (Stone) and The Millennial Harbinger (Campbell).

This book is a series of articles written by Stone and Campbell on the topic of atonement. Both papers published this exchange, but this collection is taken from The Millennial Harbinger and was published in 1840-1841. This discussion shows how these two leading men of the movement understood this subject and remains a valuable resource today.

LIMITED TIME OFFER: Through October 16, 2018, Atonement is on sale for 10% off the regular price.

The Effectiveness of Jesus’ Sacrifice

Great Days in History: The Unfolding of the Scheme of Redemption

Unlike the sacrifices that were offered under the Law of Moses, Jesus’ sacrifice was perfectly able to take away sins. Again, the sacrifices under the old law that were offered “continually” could never “take away sins” (Hebrews 10:1, 4). Yet Jesus’ sacrifice was just “one offering” that “perfected for all time those who are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14). John wrote, “The blood of Jesus… cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).

The effectiveness of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross was for everyone. Jesus said, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16). This is different from what is taught in the Calvinist doctrine of “limited atonement” – the idea that Jesus did not die for the world, but only for the elect. Yet Paul wrote, “For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men” (Titus 2:11). The salvation that was made possible by Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross is open to everyone.

However, this salvation is conditional. Though God’s grace has “appeared…to all men” (Titus 2:11), we know that not all will be saved (Matthew 7:13-14). How can this be? The only way to harmonize these passages is by concluding that God offers salvation to everyone but will only save those who meet His conditions. Jesus said, “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned” (Mark 16:16). He is “to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation” (Hebrews 5:9). Jesus’ crucifixion has made salvation available, but we must take advantage of this offer.
