In 1857, Charles Spurgeon—the most popular preacher in the Victorian world—promised his readers that he would publish his earliest sermons. For almost 160 years, these sermons have been lost to history. B&H Academic has started releasing a multi-volume set that includes full-color facsimiles, transcriptions, contextual and biographical introductions, and editorial annotations. Written for scholars, pastors, and students alike, The Lost Sermons of C.H. Spurgeon will add approximately 10% more material to Spurgeon’s body of literature and will constitute the first critical edition of any of Spurgeon’s works.
Katharina and Martin Luther: The Radical Marriage of a Runaway Nun and a Renegade Monk by Michelle DeRusha (Baker Books. 9780801019104. Hardback. $19.99)
“Strip away the veneer of the differences between the Luthers’ marriage and the typical modern marriage of today, and what shines forth is a picture of what God has always intended marriage to be: an obedience to him and to each other that glorifies him and is a picture of Christ’s relationship to the church.”—From the foreword by Karen Swallow Prior, professor of English, Liberty University
Dream with Me: Race, Love, and the Struggle We Must Win by John M. Perkins (Baker Books. 9780801007781. Hardback. $19.99)
A trailblazer in the civil rights movement, John M. Perkins led voter registration efforts in 1964, worked for school desegregation in 1967, and was jailed and tortured in 1970. He is no less zealous today as he sees a new generation of freedom fighters battling the same issues and the same systems he has spent his life working to correct.
Through his raw, personal stories spanning from the civil rights era to today, Perkins shows us that, though the fight is not over, there are many reasons to hope and to carry on the good work he and his contemporaries began more than a generation ago. He calls us to work for justice by living out God’s redemptive love in all of our relationships.
“There aren’t many people–other than Jesus and my wife–who I can say changed my life. John Perkins is one of them.”—from foreword by Randy Alcorn
Biblical Doctrine: A Systematic Summary of Bible Truth edited by John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue (Crossway. 9781433545917. Hardback. $60.00)
“This new resource is a rich and compelling presentation of Christianity’s theological foundations, providing readers with an accessible but compelling systematization of biblical truth. As the last vestiges of Christian influence erode in the West, rich theological resources like Biblical Doctrine will edify and strengthen the church as it faces stiff opposition from the world.”—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Basic Introduction to the New Testament by John Stott (Eerdmans. 9780802874696. Paperback. $16.00)
This trim new issue presents the text of the book’s 1994 edition, which bears the vintage Stott hallmarks—comprehensive knowledge of his subject, acute intellectual rigor, and powerful analysis—and was updated and expanded by Stephen Motyer at John Stott’s invitation.
“This is a marvelously concise, spiritually minded introduction that I highly commend.”—Mark Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
“If I were returning to pastoral ministry in a local church, I would ensure that there were always copies available of John Stott’s Basic Introduction to the New Testament. And every time I started a series of expositions of any New Testament book, Stott’s Basic Introduction would be mentioned from the pulpit. Christians looking for introductory help in understanding the Bible simply cannot do better than to turn to this classic.”—D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
The Reformation Then and Now: 25 Years of Modern Reformation Articles Celebrating 500 Years of the Reformation edited by Eric Landry and Michael S. Horton (Hendrickson. 9781619708907. Hardback. $29.95)
“As the world notes the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses, this book is a real boon for those who value the Reformation heritage of modern Protestantism. Of course, not all who believe Martin Luther, John Calvin, and company carried out a much-needed service to the church will agree with everything that has appeared in Modern Reformation on relevant subjects. But all who read these articles carefully will be rewarded with deeper historical insight and sharper theological insight.”—Mark Noll
