New Northampton Press Publications
Dr. Don Kistler of Northampton Press has announced that two new publications are available. The first is a newly-edited reprint of a treatise on meditation by Thomas Watson, The Christian on the Mount, which has not been in print since the early 19th century (although it is available to read online here at Google Books). It is a valuable work on an important and much-neglected topic in our day by a preeminent Puritan. The second is a reprint of a modern treatise by Dr. Bruce Bickel, Light and Heat: The Puritan View of the Pulpit, on the value of Puritan preaching and an examination of how the gospel was preached by Puritans compared to modern evangelistic methods. Both works are excellent resources for their respective topics, and both are on sale until March 1, 2009. I encourage Puritan-minded readers to visit Northampton Press and add these books to your shelf.
