These poems have been brought together in order that these spiritual truths and impressions, presented in poetical form, will comfort and edify God's people as they wrestle daily with the world, the flesh, and the devil.

As JB Stoney explores the experiences of Jonah and others in Out of Death into Life, he shows us that "WILL is the real cause of the restlessness, and of the absence of full joy in souls. ...the only true place of happiness for a believer is to be without a will of his own..." and how the enjoyment of our salvation depends on us appropriating the death of Christ.
In this beautiful exposition of the unmerited kindness of King David toward the poor lame orphan Mephibosheth, we see a picture of the kindness of God, through Jesus Christ. The condition of fallen man, the wondrous grace of God in His kindness to poor lost sinners and the privileges of conferred sonship - "and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually" - are clearly brought out by this gifted expositor.

These three novella-length tales explore psychological themes latent in the classic Grimm versions. Rather than presenting two-dimensional "good" heroines pitted against "evil" step-mothers, Grim portrays fully realized characters grappling with shame and self-doubt, suffering at the hands of mothers best thought of as narcissistic in modern terminology. Due to their dark themes and some graphic sexual material, these tales are not for the faint of heart and are unsuitable for children.
"I'm very much into fairy tale retellings"

Christianity is not a set of abstractions - a number of dogmas - a system of doctrines. It is preeminently a religion of living facts, of divine realities - a religion which finds its center in a divine Person, the Man Christ Jesus. He is the foundation of all Christian doctrine. From His divine and glorious Person all truth radiates. In this paper CHM explores Christ as a Test, as a Victim and as a Model, and asks the solemn question which still remains to be answered - "What have you done with the Son of God?
"A motivating way to make chriscentrical sermons."

In A Night in the Sea (which is part of his excellent book Night Scenes of Scripture) , beginning with the night-time crossing of the Red Sea in Exodus 14, WTP Wolston discusses "The Salvation of the Lord". In his own very clear and down-to-earth way, he brings out the beauty of Salvation; "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord." As he says, "Salvation is a very large word. It comprehends forgiveness, and deliverance, and peace, and the knowledge that I am justified...
JND was a prodigious writer who had a major influence on evangelical thinking in the 19th century. Here are just a few of his articles. "Man Fallen and The Seed of the Woman, Genesis Chapter 3": "Satan is active, and his power consists in producing distrust, and this where there is happiness and intimate relation with God - to darken, and, if possible, destroy all in the heart. Eve listened to and believed Satan, in place of listening to God and believing Him.
Peace with God: There are four things that hinder souls from having peace: Coates uses four Old Testament pictures to show how every question in connection with these four things has been met and settled for the believer, for example, "Many believers in Jesus do not know that their sins are put away...actually carried out of God's sight and removed from before him by being borne by Jesus."
In Jonathan and His Times, W. W. Fereday examines the life and times of Jonathan, son of King Saul. Although a man of faith who loved David as his own soul and performed many daring exploits in the name of Jehovah, he was a man of mixed principles, a double-minded man who never lived up to his spiritual potential. Jonathan's weakness is clearly shown: He was not prepared to follow David in his rejection.
The Christian Life is a life commenced in faith, continued in patience, and consummated by perseverance. It is a Divine life into which only those born again through the word of truth enter. It is an eternal life, for "I give unto My sheep eternal life and they shall never perish," says the Good Shepherd. It is possessed by every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ simply because he or she is a believer in Him. It is not at all an attainment, but the gift of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
