Grace Essentials

Grace Essentials provides simplified abridgments of great Christian books in modern English. They are inexpensive paperbacks which make an excellent "starter" library for any Christian. These books help to introduce the riches of the past to a new generation. Some of them have previously appeared in the Christian Classics series: others, such as Christian Freedom, will be new titles. They are being co-published with Christian Focus Publications.

Aspects of Holiness
Author: J. C. Ryle
ISBN: 9781527101043
Price: £7-99
List of Contents
Holiness is perhaps J. C. Ryle's most famous work. This modernised abridgment presents the essence of his work in a clear and readable format.

Bishop Ryle's exhortations on the lifelong pursuit of holiness are some of the best ever written. He overflows with a burning love for Christ and desire to grow more and more in Christlikeness, while facing up to the stark realities of the seriousness of sin. Thoroughly biblical and practically applied. (Andrew Atherstone, Latimer Research Fellow, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford)

The Ministry We Need
Author: Richard Baxter
ISBN: 9781527101036
Price: £7-99
List of Contents
Richard Baxter believed that teaching was the minister’s main task. That did not only mean preaching: it also included personal instruction in the Bible for everyone, not just the young. The Reformed Pastor sets out his convictions. This book, edited and abridged for a modern audience, offers helpful, practical advice for those in leadership positions.

A timeless treasure. This edited version will thrill the reader with the privileges of a faithful pastoral ministry yet simultaneously reveal its challenges. Use it with an eager anticipation that the pastoral ministry will be transformed. (Harry L. Reeder, Pastor of Preaching & Leadership, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama)

Born Slaves
Author: Martin Luther
ISBN: 9781781919668
Price: £5-99
The Bondage of the Will, first published in 1525 and perhaps Luther's most famous work, argues against the idea that we choose salvation of our own free will. Born Slaves presents this work, retaining the distinctive style and voice of Luther, for a modern audience.
Bibilical Christianity
Author: John Calvin
ISBN: 9781781919651
Price: £6-99
Calvin's great work, The Institutes of the Christian Religion, has been foundational to theological thought for five centuries. It is presented here in a faithfully edited version, perfect for enriching Bible Studies or devotionals.
Christian Freedom
Author: Samuel Bolton
ISBN: 9781781917213
Price: £5-99
List of Contents
Sample Pages

Christian Freedom provides an accessible entry into Samuel Bolton's original work, The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, first published in 1645. This book is not simply an academic discussion: Samuel Bolton constantly reminds his readers of the gospel, and the great transformation that has happened to a person who has trusted in Jesus Christ. Bolton shows us clearly that real Christian obedience comes from a changed heart, and is motivated by love for God. He deals with the practical question of what happens when Christians fall into sin, and encourages us to rely on what Christ has done for us, rather than on our performance.

The Experience That Counts
Author: Jonathan Edwards
ISBN: 9781781917190
Price: £6-99
List of Contents
Sample Pages

What does it mean to be a Christian? Is Christianity a matter of the intellect alone? What about desires, feelings, and experiences? What is conversion? These questions are not new. Jonathan Edwards, the great American theologian, tackled these and many other issues against the background of the First Great Awakening. These questions, and the answers Edwards gives to them, are profoundly relevant to us today. Here is a voice of clear Biblical and spiritual sanity to lead us safely through the maze of contemporary confusion in this crucial area.
