Book of the Week: Genesis in the Light of the New Testament

by F.W. Grant.

In this book F.W. Grant traces New Testament principles as discovered in "seed" form in the book of beginnings. One of the main threads of thought running through the book being "that which is natural, and afterward that which is spiritual." We can see New Testament truths in many ways, including creation, government, named characters and through it all God working out His own purpose and grace.

Book of the Week: Cannibalism Conquered

John G. Paton and Alexander MacKay

John G. Paton
Growing up in a little cottage in Dumfriesshire, Paton was cradled in the gospel and raised on a faithful father's prayers. He grew to be a towering figure in the advancement of the gospel worldwide. He left that little cottage and his father's prayers to take the good news of Jesus Christ to the New Hebrides, an island group in the South Pacific. He faithfully laboured, and raised a family, among the wild and savage heathen, despite being in constant danger and threat of death. On the first assembling of his little congregation of converts, he wrote "I had the foretaste of the joy of glory that well-nigh broke my heart in pieces. I shall never taste a deeper bliss till I gaze on the glorified face of Jesus Himself."

Alexander McKay
When a young Scottish draughtsman, working in Germany, wrote in his diary the following words, "this day last year Livingstone died - a Scotsman and a Christian, loving God and his neighbour in the heart of Africa. Go thou and do likewise," the seed sown by a mother's prayers was beginning to show life. Later, he read H.M. Stanley's famous challenge written in the Daily Telegraph "challenging Christendom to send missionaries to Uganda." Answering the call of the Lord of the Harvest, MacKay put his life to the Master's use. He arrived in Zanzibar in May, 1876, taking two further years to reach Uganda. Amidst much opposition, many perils, hardships and setbacks, he never wavered, and never left Africa again. Stanley called him "the greatest missionary since Livingstone."

Book of the Week: Our Witchdoctors Are Too Weak

by Davey & Marie Jank.

When Davey Jank starts a new life in the Amazon jungle among a remote tribe, he enters a world where witchcraft and shamanism are the trade of the powerful, and where fear drives a timid and isolated society to acts of desperation and the brink of despair. Davey, Marie and the others who later join them struggle to decipher and learn the unwritten language of the tribe. Within a few years the Wilos are enthusiastically reading and writing in their own language for the first time. But they want more. They want to know what "God's Talk" says. They hope that there is something more to life than the vicious cycle of fearing and appeasing the evil spirits at every turn. Finally the Wilos get what they have so long been waiting for: God's Word, taught in their own language. God had been preparing their hearts for this very message.

F.W. Grant (1834-1902)
Converted as a young man through reading the scriptures for himself, he was famed for his knowledge of scripture and his dedication to a lifetime's study of the word of God enabled him to leave behind an invaluable legacy of written material, including the much esteemed Numerical Bible. He went to be with his Lord on his eighty-sixth birthday.

City of the Seven Hills

by Henry Grattan Guinness

You have never read a book like this before. At once majestic poetry, sweeping history and stirring devotional, it is a masterpiece which would become any bookshelf. At heart, it is a history of Rome in poetic form, from the beginnings of the Empire through to its ultimate fate in the book of Revelation.

The poetry on the life of Christ is among the most sublime and Christ-exalting poetry you will ever read. An extensive appendix at the back of the book provides historical evidences for all author's verse and his accounts of the suffering of the martyrs will stir the heart of any reader.

The poem culminates with the final victory and vindication of the Lord Jesus.

Read this sample poetry from the book:
Though at His bidding winds and waves were still,
Though earth and heaven but waited on His will,
Yet all for us He wandered in the wild,
Of pain the heir, of poverty the child.
O never did there bloom beneath the skies
So fair a flower as this; nor mortal eyes
Behold the perfect loveliness of grace,
Without a shadow - save in Jesus' face.

Henry Grattan Guinness (1835-1910)
was a nineteenth century evangelist and author. A grandson of brewery founder Arthur Guinness, he gave up his inheritance after conversion to become a preacher of the gospel. A friend of D.L. Moody and Hudson Taylor, he maintained an interest in missionary work throughout his life and founded the East London Missionary Training Institute. His ambition was "to live preaching and to die preaching." He was an active preacher and was widely used of God during the 1859 revival. He was also a prolific author.

About Crimond House
In 2005, after much encouragement from friends, we decided to reprint an old classic novel, long out of print, called The Watchers on the Longships. It is the story of the effects of the Wesleyan Revival in a small Cornish village. In January 2008, we were proud to be able to make available again the treasured Two Version Bible, the Authorized Version with the Revised Version in the margin. It is continued our aim, from time to time, to reissue selected books which, tapping the treasures of a previous era, will benefit today's readership.

Catherine Campbell Book Signing

Catherine Campbell, author of Under the Rainbow, shall be signing copies of her new book God Knows Your Name in our shop on:
Saturday, 20th November, from 11.30 till 1.00.

Book of the Week: A Woman Who Reflects the Heart of Jesus

by Elizabeth George.

Elizabeth George has long been a favorite source of encouragement and wisdom for women who hunger to know how God desires for them to live. In her newest release, Elizabeth asks, “Where better can we learn about right character and conduct than Jesus Himself?”

There is much we can learn from this perfect life example: His generosity in caring for the needs of others, the abundance of His kindness and forgiveness even to His enemies, His persistence in watching over His own, and His willingness to give His all even though He had nothing.

Every woman who desires to…

1. Skillfully make the most of limited time 2. Give freely without expecting anything in return 3. Achieve all things in God’s strength and not her own 4. Let her light shine and glorify God

will find a treasure trove of truths and applications that enable her to follow well in the footsteps of Jesus.
