Are you looking for a brief introduction to what the biblical counseling movement is and how it has changed over the years? In ‘Developments in Biblical Counseling’, J. Cameron Fraser turns a journalistic eye to this question and presents a concise assessment. Introducing us to the formative work of Jay Adams, Fraser outlines several themes of biblical counseling that became foundational for the movement as a whole and observes how the movement received criticisms from outside and made necessary developments from within. He points out that some of these developments have an affinity with Puritan approaches to counseling that Adams rejects but may point in a more consistently biblical direction.

Driven by the desire to be successful, pastors are tempted to judge their ministries by the worldly standards of power, prestige, privilege, and prosperity. In contrast, J. Stephen Yuille reorients our understanding of pastoral ministry by presenting a standard of excellence measured by faithfulness, humility, and submission to God—even when the results look unsuccessful in the eyes of the world. Drawing from the Puritan minister George Swinnock, Yuille expands on a list of sixteen heartfelt desires that Swinnock expressed for his own pastoral ministry. Yuille’s reflections on these timeless priorities are full of biblical insights and pastoral wisdom. The book ends with Swinnock’s farewell sermon to his congregation, which serves as an encouraging example for all pastors who desire to love their people in Christ. This book is a valuable guide for pastors as they seek to labor and love in the service of Christ.

Hildersham’s Fasting, Prayer, and Humiliation for Sin offers a portrait of eight sermons on Psalm 35:13 preached in 1625–1626. Yet, unlike a still picture, they exude a lively energy and intensity prompted by the seriousness of the occasion: an outbreak of plague. Throughout, Hildersham presents the reasons, need, method, and helps the Christian is to employ in taking up fasting and prayer as a serious duty, both for himself and for others, especially in the face of great judgment. His work encourages Christians to grow in repentance for sin by laying out its seriousness and the reality of its consequences, whether in this life or the next. His word then is timely now: “As the Lord Himself counsels you, ‘Prepare to meet thy God.’”

As the Christian life does not begin without means, neither can it grow without them.

The Christian life can be daunting, especially in a world hostile to the ways of God. But the good news is that the God who calls us to be holy has also appointed helpful means so that we can grow in godliness. In Holy Helps for a Godly Life, Richard Rogers shows what the means of godliness are, describes their nature, and explains how they should be used. God has promised to give grace to those who use these means in a right and reverent way, and those who use these means in faith will discover their value for themselves.

“Reformation Heritage Books has done the church a great service by making Richard Rogers’s classic available again, and editor Brian Hedges has made it much more accessible by his faithful modernization of the language when needed. The counsel in this book is helpful to Christians young and old—whether new in the faith or spiritually mature. It demonstrates not only Rogers’s gift for teaching the Bible clearly but also his pastoral concern to provide practical guidance for daily Christian living. What he said in Holy Helps to a Godly Life is as valuable today as it was when it first appeared in 1603. Now, thanks to RHB and Brian Hedges, the godly Richard Rogers, ‘being dead still speaks’ (Heb. 11:4).”
—Donald S. Whitney, professor of biblical spirituality and associate dean at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, and author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life

The Reformed tradition is characterized by a rigorous commitment to theological formulation, yet it is equally known for its commitment to rooting its life and practice in the authority of God’s Word. While these two commitments are commonly acknowledged, the path from biblical interpretation to doctrinal formulation is often overlooked. Examining a diverse group of thinkers across the chronological and international spectrum of the Reformed tradition, this book demonstrates the depth and intricacies involved in the tasks of exegesis and dogmatic construction, the ways they intersect, and the effect it has on the church.

William Perkins described God’s all-sufficiency as His blessedness. This view of God shaped his understanding of Christian piety, leading him to define theology as the science of living blessedly forever. For Perkins, godliness flows from the enjoyment of God.

In ‘Living Blessedly Forever’, J. Stephen Yuille demonstrates how Perkins practically taught about God, joy, and the Christian life through his preaching on the Sermon on the Mount. Yuille begins with a brief account of Perkins’s life and ministry, considering several factors that shaped Perkins’s interpretation and application of the Sermon on the Mount. He then examines Perkins’s exposition of Matthew 5–7, identifying six marks of godliness (blessedness, repentance, righteousness, sincerity, contentment, and faithfulness) and concluding with a challenge to join practice with knowledge of the word of Christ.

Yuille’s work is more than a simple look at a sermon series given by a Puritan. While you will learn much about Perkins’s approach to the Sermon on the Mount, you will also be challenged to live blessedly forever.

Author:
J. Stephen Yuille is pastor of Grace Community Church in Glen Rose, Texas. He has authored and edited several books on the Puritans and is involved as a volume editor in the forthcoming Works of William Perkins.

Endorsement:
“One of the great puzzles of church history is the church’s failure to keep in print the works of William Perkins. Why, when so many of the Puritan writers were reprinted in the nineteenth century, was Perkins, the prince of the Puritans, passed by? In his own day he topped the best seller list of English theological/practical writers. In our day, this problem is slowly (very slowly) being remedied. For this reason, I am thankful for Stephen Yuille’s exposition of Perkins’s commentary on the Sermon on the Mount. Yuille’s work is a clear presentation of Perkins and written with the same goal as Perkins, that men and women may live blessedly forever. I enthusiastically commend this book to one who wants to get better insight into Perkins, as well to all who desire a practical exposition of Christ’s most famous sermon.” — Joseph A. Pipa Jr., President of Greenville Presbyterian Seminary, Greenville, South Carolina


Author(s): Arie Elshout

Some Christians struggle with doubts and dread the thought of participating in the Lord’s Supper for fear of taking it unworthily. In this book, Arie Elshout provides tender encouragement to such sensitive souls. Distinguishing between the assurance of faith and the assurance of sense, Elshout reminds us that weak faith is faith nonetheless. Wise pastoral counsel is also given on areas of self-examination and the distinguishing marks of true grace. Here is a helping hand extended to all who are sorry for their sins and take refuge in Christ, and a reminder that the Lord desires to comfort and refresh penitent sinners with the gospel promises of His Table.

Author:
Arie Elshout (1923–1991) served as a minister for 32 years in the Gereformeerde Gemeenten of the Netherlands, and in its sister denomination, the Netherlands Reformed Congregations of North America.
