Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Confidence in God in Times of Danger is a passionate explanation of God’s workings in the Book of Esther. The author moves from Biblical insight to practical application in the lives of God’s people today. When the times are turbulent and filled with all manner of possible dangers, the great God of the Bible is in control and can be trusted completely.
“We learn that the most casual events which take place in the affairs of the world are connected with God’s plans respecting His people; and that the most trifling things are appointed and directed by Him to effect His purposes. It decides a question that philosophy has conversed for ages, and will never fathom; recording a number of events, the result of man’s free will, yet evidently appointed of God and directed by His providence. From this book the believer may learn to place unbounded confidence in the care of his God in the utmost danger; and to look to the Lord of omnipotence for deliverance when there is no apparent means of escape.”

“The Attributes of God” has become a Christian classic in our time. Unlike other more devotional treatments, Pink considers the Biblical evidence for each of God’s attributes and gives in-depth insight into His character and very nature. The reader leaves each chapter both exalting God and better understanding “Him with whom we have to do.”
Attributes studied include: God’s solitariness, Decrees, Knowledge, Supremacy, Sovereignty, Immutability, Holiness, Power, Faithfulness, Goodness, Patience, Grace, Mercy, Love, Wrath, and Contemplation.
Arthur W. Pink was born in Nottingham, England in 1886, and born again of the Spirit of God in 1908. He studied at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, USA for only six weeks before beginning his pastoral work in Colorado. From there he pastored churches in California, Kentucky and South Carolina before moving on to Sidney, Australia for a brief period, preaching and teaching. In 1934, He returned to his native land, England, and in 1940 took up permanent residence on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland, remaining there until his death twelve years later in 1952. Most of his works, including The Attributes of God, first appeared as articles in the monthly Studies in the Scriptures published from 1922 to 1953.
Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. The Pure in Heart is excerpted from Thomas Watson’s classic work, The Beatitudes, written in 1660. In the experiential style of the Puritans, he examines in part one the nature, reasons and motives for, signs of, and how to attain heart-purity. Then in part two he wonderfully describes the blessings of the pure in heart: what it shall be like to see God!
Thomas Watson was born approximately 1620, and died in 1686. Educated at Cambridge, he served as lecturer and then rector at St. Stephens in the Church of England. He was imprisoned in 1651 and ejected in 1662 for non-conformity to the Church’s erroneous practices. He continued to serve God’s people in several congregations thereafter. Watson became a well-respected Puritan preacher in his day, and a prolific author. His works include A Body of Divinity, The Lord’s Prayer, The Ten Commandments, Heaven Taken by Storm, and numerous others.
