Aged only 35, John Gordon must come to terms with a terminal illness and a burden of guilt. This is the powerful account of a man with a troubled conscience being counselled in the face of death.

A great revival of religion took place in the Northern Highlands of Scotland during the latter part of the eighteenth century. The Lord blessed the preaching of faithful ministers in these scattered, remote communities. In a relatively short space of time thousands of men and women were turned from darkness to light and became humble and faithful Christians. Alexander MacGillivray was the first writer to describe the revivals in detail. This book, first issued in 1859, traces the history of the revivals in Ross-shire and Sutherland, and illustrates the history by short biographies of some eminent Christians.

This book contains articles by Thomas Boston of Ettrick, James Fisher of Glasgow and Dr John Kennedy of Dingwall.

Jan Hus—also known as John Huss—was one of the early European Reformers. He became a priest in Prague in 1400 and quickly rose to become a popular preacher and the Rector of Prague University. Hus opposed the sale of indulgences and rejected the Church’s erroneous teaching on various topics. By his words and actions he posed a threat to the authority of the entire Roman Catholic system. This led to his trial and martyrdom at the stake in 1415, over a century before the Protestant Reformation of Martin Luther.
This book examines the life and times of Jan Hus and tells of the dangerous struggles to bring about a reformation in Bohemia. It also traces the history of the Hussites after his execution, when they resisted the military might of the Roman Catholic Church. This book gives an excellent introduction to the story of Jan Hus and these stirring events. It is rounded off by thumbnail biographies of the major characters.
