Daniel in the Critic’s Den.  £8.00  Sir Robert Anderson, Cosimo, 2007 (originally 1909), 186 pp., paperback.

    1

A dismantling of an attempt by Dean Farrar (who followed in the footsteps of earlier rationalists such as Prof. S.R. Driver) to place a much later date on the writing of the book of Daniel in an attempt to get rid of the evident miraculously prophetic nature of the book. Robert Anderson was Chief of Police in London in the days of Jack the Ripper and brings very able critical thinking to the task.

 

The Buddha of Christendom.  £9.50  Sir Robert Anderson, Cosimo, 2007 (originally 1899), 326 pp., paperback. 

    2

“Sir Robert Anderson pits the Bible against organised Christianity (most specifically, the R.C. Church) in the Buddha of Christendom and takes the side of scripture…he asks in the beginning of the book, “is the supreme authority the Bible or the Church”? Also containing arguments against atheism and evolution, The Buddha of Christendom is as topical today as it was when first published…”

 

The Romance of Bible Chronology. £11.50 Martin Anstey, Forgotten Books, 1913 original, 300 pp., paperback.

   10

A gem! This requires thinking caps for most of us but the effort will be well rewarded. Anstey gives dates from Adam all the way through the Old Testament. This is a very learned work and deeply satisfying for earnest Bible students. Jack Moorman wrote me in an email, "Anstey is light years ahead of Thiele." Jack Moorman's excellent book, "The Two Great Divides" would be well to consult alongside.

 

D.L. Moody, The Greatest Evangelist of the 19th Century.  £4.00  Faith Coxe Bailey, Moody Press,  159 pp., paperback.

      11

D.L. Moody dared to take up a challenge and see what God could do with a life totally committed to Him…”

 

J. J. Blunt's Undesigned Scriptural Coincidences £12.00 Eric Lounsbery, Xulon Press, 2005, 264 pp. paperback.

        12

An excellent 19th century work by J.J. Blunt. Blunt gives very many examples of extraordinary coincidences in biblical passages that are self-evidently not pre-meditated design. Such coincidences demonstrate the oversight and inspiration of the eternal God.

 

Science versus Evolution.  £10.00  Malcolm Bowden, Sovereign Publications, 2002, 200 pp., paperback.

            3 

“…one is left wondering how any self-respecting scientist could possibly believe in evolution after reading this book.” Dr. A. J. Monty White.   

 

The Rise of the Evolution Fraud. (An exposure of the conspiracy) £11.00 Malcolm Bowden, Sovereign Publications, 2008, 205 pp, paperback.

         4

Dr. Jack Moorman, in discussing the title below, once told me that he considered Malcolm Bowden to be the ablest Creationist in the UK. Mr. Bowden here argues that "evolution was imposed upon an unwitting public by the long term efforts of a small group of men working together behind the scenes."

 

True Science Agrees with the Bible.  £12.50  Malcolm Bowden, Sovereign Publications, 1998, 551 pp, paperback.

     5

A pot-pourri of interesting and diverse material of interest to Christians. Includes a survey of Genesis, early British Christianity c 60 AD, geology, the gospel in the stars, numbers in the Bible and more.

 

The Joy of Preaching.  £7.95  Phillips Brooks, Kregel, 1989,237pp., paperback.

     6

“Phillips Brooks deals with the essential principles of preaching – principles that never change. In fact, it is my conviction that everything useful written on homiletics in America in the last century is, one way or another, a footnote to Phillips Brooks.” Warren Wiersbe. Lots of gems with one or two plainly unscriptural notions. 

 

The Witness of the Stars.  £7.25  E. W. Bullinger, Kregel, 1893, 204pp., paperback.

  7

“Building upon ancient astronomical sources and upon current scientific data, the author displays how the constellations witness to the accuracy of Biblical prophetic truths. Numerous celestial charts and  diagrams are provided to lend vivid support to his conclusions.”

“Americans must be reminded from whence we came. New generations must be taught. We suggest that readers help distribute this message everywhere. I regret that the work is not more comprehensive.”

 

Directory of Contemporary Worship Musicians.  £12.00  David Cloud, Way of Life, Michigan, 2011, 417 pp., paperback.

       13

This directory contains information on influential contemporary worship musicians who are creating the music that is being used ever more frequently by fundamentalist and very conservative evangelical churches. All of them are radically ecumenical and the vast majority are charismatic in theology.

 

Richard Dawkins' Fictional World.  £0.75  Robin Compston.  Metropolitan tabernacle, London, 2012, 32 pp., paperback.

"Richard Dawkins book 'The God Delusion' has sold in millions, attacking the God of the Bible with a ferocity not seen since the heyday of aggressive Communism. But these assaults contain numerous mistakes, as many noted reviewers have pointed out. In this brief and readable response, Robin Compston exposes with exceptional clarity major mistakes, and at the same time shows the reality and value of the faith under attack."

 

Science vs. Evolution. £22.50 Vance Ferrell, Evolution Facts, Inc. 2001, 1008 pp., hardback.

17

 A brief history of the fat fake, Father Christmas.

 

Are Babies Humans?  £2.50  Paul E. Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1995, 42 pp., paperback.

“What the Supreme Court has decided and what a bunch of evolutionary medical scientists may think means as much to me as a flea scheduling a boxing match with a mosquito. Medical opinion contrary to truth (the Bible) is of little interest to me other than pointing out the error of their way.”

 

Is Noah the Missing Link?  £2.25  Paul E. Heaton, Kings Publishing, 1998, 33 pp., paperback.

“The purpose of this small booklet is simply to put in print the facts as they are in the Bible and to compare them with what the scholars tell us are the facts. I have not, and will not, ever twist a verse or run to the Hebrew or Greek to get my facts. If they are not in the English then they are nowhere else.”

The Collapse of Evolution.  £8.00  Scott Huse, Baker Books, 1983, 224 pp, paperback.

  19

“The Collapse of Evolution has long been one of the most successful books on flaws in the evolutionary theory. It confronts evolutionists on a turf they have claimed as their own – the sciences – as it explains the weaknesses of Darwinian and other naturalistic evolution theories.”

 

Fascinating Truths.  £7.00  James W.Knox, 2004, 197pp., paperback.

        20

What the Bible says about dreams, the giants in the earth, how the United States has won the wars but lost the peace; and seven other subjects, make this book both enjoyable and enlightening.

 

Gunning for God. Why the New Atheists are Missing the Target.  £8.00  John C. Lennox, Lion Hudson, Oxford, 2011, 248 pp., paperback.

 21

"This is a powerful, hard-hitting indictment of the 'New Atheists'. Quoting extensively from their works, Lennox fully documents their close-mindedness, their reluctance to consider evidence and their resort to ridicule, mockery and misrepresentation in the place of serious argument - qualities that can make their work confirm rather than undermine religious belief." Professor Alvin Plantinga.

 

Martin Luther’s Table Talk.  £12.00  Martin Luther, Christian Focus, 2003, 482pp., hardback. (Cover not as shown).

     22

“This collection of informal comments was gathered together by Anthony Lauterbach and John Aurifaber, who were very close to Luther towards the end of his life. It is a serendipitous collection and many of the Reformer’s words are pithy and direct.”

The Huxley Memorial Debate. Feb.14th 1986.  £6.50  Oxford Union, CD, 3 hrs 49 mins.

The motion was, ‘That the doctrine of creation is more valid than the theory of evolution.’ Principal speakers for the motion were Prof. Edgar Andrews and Dr. A.E. Wilder-Smith. Principal speakers against the motion were Prof. J. Maynard-Smith and Dr. Richard Dawkins. Some of Dr. Dawkins  ‘arguments’, which were no more than baseless lampoons, did not require anything more than a bloated ego. His doctoral qualifications, as far as these points were concerned, were irrelevant. They could have been made just as vindictively by the average chimney sweep. 

Profiting from the Word £5.00  A W Pink, Banner of Truth Trust, 1970, 124 pp., paperback. (Cover not as shown).

     23

"How much profit do we gain from our reading of the Bible? 'All Scripture', we are told in 2 Timothy 3:16,17 'is profitable', but how much do we gain from our reading of Scripture, and by what means can we learn to profit more? These questions are so fundamental to Christian experience and happiness, provide the theme for this book by Arthur Pink."

Sodom Had No Bible  £9.50  Leonard Ravenhill, Christian Life Books, Pensacola, 1971, 224 pp., paperback.

So You Want to Lose Your Salvation!  £2.00  David F.Reagan, Antioch Publications, 27 pp., paperback.

      26

“So…you want to lose your salvation. Well, you don’t really want to lose it…but you think you have, or could, or that someone you know certainly has lost theirs. They used to go to church every service and teach a Sunday School class, but now they cuss and drink and won’t step inside a church door. They were obviously saved before. They are obviously lost now. So, they must have lost their salvation. It’s as simple as that …or is it?”

      35

Clearly documents from Lewis’s own works his many heresies. Lewis did not accept the inspiration of the scriptures, nor believe that Christ alone can save and was clearly ecumenical. The release in 2010 of The Voyage of the Dawntreader is not an indication that film-makers are becoming evangelical. Lots of Christians will no doubt attend.

        37

This book gives a historical background and documents the development of sex education in the UK, particularly during the 20th century. Dr. Williams leads us to the inescapable conclusion that "the real purpose of sex education has been to promote the sexual revolution." When Peter Hitchens said this very thing on the BBC's 'Question Time', he was heartily jeered and booed by what looked like the entire audience. O tempora, O mores!

 

The Dark Side of Christian Counselling.  £6.25  E.S.Williams, Belmont House, 2009, 155 pp., paperback.  

      38

"It is amazing how rapidly the Christian counselling movement has spread through churches in the UK, teaching that hurts and depressions once considered part of normal life are illnesses to be treated. It implies that for 1900 years the Bible has been insufficient for the woes of God's people, or for their sanctification, but that now we have the 'insights' of anti-Christian psychologists to make good the deficits."

 

The Erosion of Christian Values in Church and Nation  £2.50  E S Wiiliams, Christian Watch. (CD, approx 60 mins.)

A talk given by Dr. Williams in 2009 with particular details of the aims and influences of secular humanism. The BBC, for example, is top-heavy wth Sodomites running the show. Informative.

 "Atheism is a world without God.
