“Christ Is All” highlights the life and work of the memorable Scottish minister and poet, Horatius Bonar (1808–1889). Michael A. G. Haykin and Darrin R. Brooker present 65 excerpts from Bonar’s writings that capture his ardent devotion to the glory of Christ. Readers will also find Haykin’s biographical introduction on Bonar a valuable glimpse at a life that God used greatly in the preaching of the gospel and the saving of souls.
Seeking, then, both to honor the past and yet not idolize it, we are issuing these books in the series Profiles in Reformed Spirituality. The design is to introduce the spirituality and piety of the Reformed Profiles in Reformed Spirituality tradition by presenting descriptions of the lives of notable Christians with select passages from their works. This combination of biographical sketches and collected portions from primary sources gives a taste of the subjects’ contributions to our spiritual heritage and some direction as to how the reader can find further edification through their works. It is the hope of the publishers that this series will provide riches for those areas where we are poor and light of day where we are stumbling in the deepening twilight.
Darrin R. Brooker is the editor and publisher of The Life and Works of Horatius Bonar CD. He and his wife Melissa are members of Trinity Baptist Church, Burlington, Ontario.
Michael Haykin is professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky, and Research Professor of Irish Baptist College, Constituent College of Queen’s University Belfast, N. Ireland.
“Bonar’s biography provides an enlightening vista of another age, while his selections give us penetrating insight into our won. As Bonar would wish, every word points us to the Christ of all ages and for all ages” – David P. Murray

Anthems for a Dying Lamb offers an in-depth exposition of Psalms 113-118. Often called the Hallel, these psalms were part of the Passover seder, which directed proceedings during the Passover meal. That’s one reason the Hallel became known as the ‘hymn’ that Jesus sang with his disciples at the Last Supper, and why it is often part of communion services when the church celebrates the Lord’s Supper. Philip Ross explains Psalms 113-118 in their Old Testament context and shows how the ‘trouble and sorrow’ of Psalm 116, or the ‘cornerstone’ of Psalm 118, give us insight into Jesus’ ministry and mindset in the hours before his crucifixion.

What does it mean to love God with all of our minds?
Our culture today is in a state of crisis where intellectual virtue is concerned. Dishonesty, cheating, arrogance, laziness, cowardice–such vices are rampant in society, even among the worlds most prominent leaders. We find ourselves in an ethical vacuum, as the daily headlines of our newspapers confirm again and again. Central to the problem is the state of education. We live in a technological world that has ever greater access to new information and yet no idea what to do with it all.
In this wise and winsome book, Philip Dow presents a case for the recovery of intellectual character. He explores seven key virtues–courage, carefulness, tenacity, fair-mindedness, curiosity, honesty and humility–and discusses their many benefits. The recovery of virtue, Dow argues, is not about doing the right things, but about becoming the right kind of person. The formation of intellectual character produces a way of life that demonstrates love for both God and neighbor.
Dow has written an eminently practical guide to a life of intellectual virtue designed especially for parents and educators. The book concludes with seven principles for a true education, a discussion guide for university and church groups, and nine appendices that provide examples from Dows experience as a teacher and administrator.
Virtuous Minds is a timely and thoughtful work for parents and pastors, teachers and students–anyone who thinks education is more about the quality of character than about the quantity of facts.
