Scripture Truth Publications - "Christian publishing since the 1800s"

Re-published good books from the past:

For a book that's easy to dip into, with a number of short chapters, and the associated Bible passages reproduced in the text, what could be better than the first of our new editions of the writings of J T Mawson: Delivering Grace, a practical study in the life of Elisha. It's available in both paperback and hardback. His excellent book of Bible studies on the future, Waiting for the Coming, is a convincing and challenging read, as is How to Overcome, a practical guide to the victorious Christian life, based on studies in the book of Judges.

Hamilton Smith is an early 20th century writer with an easy style and neat turn of phrase, and we can offer you a choice of a New Testament outline of The Gospel of Mark (in paperback or hardback), The Epistle to the Romans or The Epistle to the Colossians, devotional studies of two of the great Old Testament prophets: Elijah and Elisha, and a collection of Short Papers on the Church.

 Algernon J Pollock was a prolific author. We are sure you will enjoy our edition of his classic work The Tabernacle's Typical Teaching, newly illustrated by Arthur Duff, an exposition of "types" - people, places, objects, events, offices, activities and institutions - connected with the Tabernacle, the Priesthood, the Offerings and the Feasts (particularly as described in the first five books of the Old Testament) which foreshadow their corresponding New Testament "antitypes" - most particularly Christ Himself. His compilation of Scripture texts, prose and poetry, "Comforted of God", shines the light of God's Word into the darkness of disappointment, illness and bereavement. To those in such circumstances it provides encouragement, strength, illumination, understanding and comfort.

If you are looking for a comprehensive, easy to follow, commentary on the whole of the New Testament, then F B Hole's New Testament Commentary in 4 handy volumes, now available in paperback and hardback, could be just what you need. On the other hand, if you wonder what Brethren ministry was like in the 1930s, why not try The Epistle of Christ, edited by F B Hole, which records a 4-day series of meetings held in Leeds from April 6th-9th 1937, where the speakers included F B Hole, J T Mawson, A J Pollock and Hamilton Smith, to name but a few!

If you are interested in Puritan writings, but find reading the original volumes hard work, why not try Hamilton Smith's selected extracts in 3 volumes of "Gleanings from the Past", now attractively typeset and published in paperback: Extracts from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford, Extracts from the Writings of William Gurnall (his selection from "The Christian in Complete Armour") and Extracts from the Writings of Thomas Watson.


H P Barker:

Harold Primrose Barker (1869-1952) spent many years among the Brethren. His written ministry is still great appreciated and sought after.

"The Holy Spirit Here Today" by H P BarkerThe Holy Spirit Here Today

ISBN: 0 901860 09 3;   Paperback;   176 pages;   £3.95

J T Mawson writes in his Foreword: "No subject can be of greater importance to the pardoned sinner than that of the Holy Spirit. His capacity to understand the things of God, his power for Christian living and service, the means by which he may commune with God and intercede with Him on behalf of others are all found in the Holy Spirit "Whom God has given to them that obey Him"." 

"The Holy Spirit Here Today" was previously published as "Christ's Vicar".

F B Hole:

Frank Binford Hole (1874-1964), evangelist, teacher, author, editor and publisher, played a significant role, during the first half of the twentieth century, in the dissemination of dispensational Bible teaching popularised by such as John Nelson Darby and William Kelly in the late nineteenth century. Whether speaking or writing, he was noted for his clarity of expression and apt illustrations. For many years he edited and contributed to two periodicals: "Edification" and later "Scripture Truth".

Frank B Hole was educated at King's School in The Strand, London. He worked in the family business, then in banking before becoming a full time evangelist, teacher, writer and publisher. His writings have been valued by Christians all over the world. Billy Graham, on one of his early visits to London sent Mr. Hole his personal greetings and expressed his gratitude for his writing ministry.

"Israel" by F B HoleIsaiah

ISBN: 978-0-901860-72-9;   Paperback;   192 pages;   £8.75

Between 1956 and 1958 Mr Hole wrote a series of articles for "Scripture Truth" magazine in which he worked systematically, chapter by chapter, through the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament. For the first time they have now been brought together in book form. Today, in the twenty-first century, they provide as valuable an aid to the application of scriptural principles to Old Testament interpretation as when they were first written. In his clear pithy style, the writer examines Isaiah's prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, and God's past and future plans for Israel. Difficulties in interpretation are not avoided, nor the need to examine the practical response which understanding truth requires from Christians today.

New Testament Commentary:

With an easy to read style, this commentary on the New Testament will be invaluable to Christians old and young who seek to understand the word of God, the salvation He offers in His Son and His plans for our lives.

Between 1928 and 1947 F B Hole wrote a series of articles in each of which he worked systematically, chapter by chapter, through a book in the New Testament. These have been collected into four volumes: The Gospels and Acts, Romans and Corinthians, Galatians to Philemon and Hebrews to Revelation, to create a substantial commentary covering the whole of the New Testament. Today, in the twenty-first century, they provide as valuable an aid to interpreting and applying New Testament principles as when they were first written. In his clear pithy style, the writer lays bare the heart of the teaching of the New Testament. Difficulties in interpretation are not avoided, nor the need to examine the practical response which understanding truth requires.

"The Epistle of Christ" edited by F B Hole"The Epistle of Christ": A Report of Meetings held in Leeds for four days April 6th-9th, 1937 (editor)

ISBN: 0 901860 73 5;   Paperback;   140 pages;   £7.00

In 1937, F B Hole was invited, along with other leading teachers of the time in the Brethren movement (including W Bramwell Dick, Algernon J Pollock, Hamilton Smith, J T Mawson, J Houston and D Ross), to contribute to a series of meetings over four consecutive days on Christians' attitudes, aspirations and activities as they wait for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. Notes taken during the meetings were revised by the participants, then edited by Mr Hole, giving a unique insight into the character and content of the event. The thoroughly Bible-based approach to the subject has much to teach us today. With Bible in hand, follow each scripture as it is expounded, and learn what it really means to be Christ's letter to the world in the twenty-first century.

Rebuilding Zion"Rebuilding Zion" by F B Hole

ISBN: TBA;   Paperback;   198 pages;   £2.99 {SOLD OUT}

"The Old Testament is the history of man under the Law and its last word is 'curse'. The New Testament is the story of the appearing of God's grace and the last clause is 'The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ..."

This book is an exposition of the books of the exile: Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. Using the longing of God's ancient people for deliverance we are exhorted to rejoice in the day of grace in which we live, whilst we wait for the Lord's return and our complete deliverance from the things of this world.

C H Mawson:

Charles Harold Mawson, known as “Charlie”, was born in Bradford in 1898, the eldest son of the evangelist, author and editor of Scripture Truth, John Thomas Mawson (1871-1943). His younger sister, later Mrs Alice Chambers (1900-1995), was well-known as a speaker at Christian women’s meetings and author of several books. The extracts from his diary and letters clearly show he shared his father’s evangelistic fervour and the family talent for writing. But God had other plans for him. Called up in the First World War, less than 12 months later he was killed by shell fire at Poelcappelle on October 12th, 1917, during the early stages of the first battle of Passchendaele. He was 19 years and 8 months old.

"I am Kept" by C H MawsonI am Kept

ISBN: 978-0-901860-54-5;  Paperback;   46 pages;   £4.25   Published 12th October 2017

The extracts from his diary and letters home form a fitting memorial, for on reading them, the Bishop of Durham could write, with feeling, “I bless God for this splendid young life, filled and used, first in peace, then in the fiery crucible of soldier-life, not by any vague ‘new thought’, nor worship of mere manhood, but by the old and unchangeable Gospel of the Grace of God in Christ” [Handley Moule, (May, 1918)]

J T Mawson:

John Thomas Mawson (1871-1943) was an outstanding evangelist, teacher and author. He edited and contributed to “Scripture Truth” magazine from its inception in 1909 until 1943 (initially sharing the editorship with H D R Jameson, until the latter's death in 1912). The content of some of his books was originally delivered in series of talks to Christians, young and old, and his writings have a pleasant conversational style about them which makes them easy to follow. His comment on the story of Elisha as “enlightening to the mind and delightful to the heart” describes well his own written ministry.

"Concerning Himself" by J T MawsonConcerning Himself

ISBN: 978-0-901860-92-7;  Paperback;   170 pages;   £8.00

Christianity is all about Christ, and unless He is the all-absorbing Subject of each Christian’s life then, as John Owen wrote in Christologia as long ago as 1679, “whatever outward ornaments may be put upon its exercise, it is but a useless, lifeless carcass”.

But where can we learn about Him? The author's conviction is that the Bible is the only authoritative source, and from it he leads us through the miraculous birth, deity, sinlessness, temptations, miracles, death, resurrection and exaltation of the Lord Jesus Christ, His current service as High Priest and His future as Judge.

 "The Word of God is the only authority upon which I base the assurance with which I have written of these things, and by the Word of God alone what I have written must be tested and judged."

J. T. Mawson dedicated the ministry of Scripture Truth to the task of ‘drawing out from the Scriptures the things concerning Christ’. The present volume contains thirteen inspirational articles on exactly this theme. They first appeared as a series entitled “Things Most Surely Believed” in Volumes 26-27 (1934-35) plus an additional article in Volume 28 (1936), and were revised and published in book form in 1936.

"Delivering Grace" by J T MawsonDelivering Grace

ISBN: 978-0-901860-64-4;  Paperback;   192 pages;   £8.75

ISBN: 978-0-901860-78-1;   Hardback;   192 pages;   £20.00

This book considers the life of Elisha, a remarkable prophet: of all the men who served God in Old Testament days, he stands out as the prophet of grace, and in that he was a foreshadow of the Lord Jesus Christ in His present place on the throne of grace in heaven, the Administrator of the grace of God to men. Only a shadow, and not the very image of Him, and as the shadow is nothing and the Substance is everything, so Elisha is nothing, except as his thrilling story does pictorially set before us the all-sufficient grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. And that is something, and well worthy of our study, for who can do without the Saviour and His grace? The procession of needy folk with their burdens and ills and problems and sorrows pass before Elisha in its pages. We watch them as they come and go, and recognise our own spiritual needs portrayed in them; but as Elisha was the man for them all, so is his great Antitype the Man for us. It is of Him the author writes, joyfully, thankfully, and with a full assurance. The author uses scenes from Elisha's experience to meditate on the later, and perfect, life of Jesus Christ, as he develops his theme of "the secret of spiritual victory, peace and joy".

"How to Overcome" by J T MawsonHow to Overcome

ISBN: 978-0-901860-62-0;  Paperback;   144 pages;   £7.25

This book is for Christians who desire to live for Christ, and know they have the power of the Holy Spirit for this very purpose, and yet somehow always find themselves defeated. The author uses examples from Israel's experiences recorded in the book of Judges to show how the Christian can overcome five enemies: the World, the Flesh, the Devil, Earthly Things and Carnal Religion.

"Waiting for the Coming" by J T Mawson"Waiting for the Coming"

ISBN: 978-0-901860-67-5;  Paperback;   130 pages;   £6.75

People have all sorts of ideas about what the future holds. What is the truth about what lies ahead? The Bible records that Jesus said He would return. So, what are the consequences - for the Christian and the world? In a series of Bible studies the author explores these and related issues: considering relevant questions, to which he discovers convincing answers. Importantly, he shows that the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ will be in two stages - the coming for His saints (the Rapture) and with them (the Appearing). In the light of these, we each need to face the challenge, "Am I waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ?"

Algernon James Pollock:

Algernon James Pollock (1864-1957), was the eldest son born to a Christian banker and his wife in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. At the age of eleven he made a profession of faith in Christ. Early in life he was introduced to leading figures amongst the Brethren (John Nelson Darby was entertained in the home when Algie was about fifteen). He followed his father into banking, but his true calling was to share the treasure he had found in heaven, and he left to become a full-time evangelist. He was an indefatigable apologist from the pulpit and in print wherever he saw the Christian faith under attack. He wrote several books, but he is probably best known for over fifty critiques of deviations from Bible-based, Christ-centred Christianity. His ministry was not restricted to the United Kingdom; he travelled in the USA in 1898, and also visited Scandinavia, Spain, Germany and India. It was a measure of the international regard for his writings that he was selected to contribute a chapter to Torrey's series on "The Fundamentals".

"The Tabernacle's Typical Teaching" by Algernon James PollockThe Tabernacle's Typical Teaching

ISBN: 978-0-901860-65-1;   Paperback;    236 pages;   £10.25

This volume is a comprehensive exposition of "types" - people, objects, events, offices and activities - connected with the Tabernacle, the Priesthood, the Offerings and the Feasts in the Old Testament, which foreshadow their New Testament "antitypes" - the realities associated with Christ Himself.

"Comforted of God" compiled by Algernon James Pollock"Comforted of God" (compiler)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-63-7;   Paperback;    110 pages;   £6.00

This collection of Scripture texts, prose and poetry shines the light of God's Word into the darkness of disappointment, illness and bereavement. To those in such circumstances it provides encouragement, strength, illumination, understanding and comfort. Over thirty thousand copies were produced during the first half of the twentieth century, bringing relief to many. Over one hundred years have passed since the first edition was compiled, and yet the basic problems of the human condition remain essentially unchanged; and God's Word has as much to say to those facing the darkest of personal situations in the 21st Century as it ever did. Its message of hope still lifts the spirit and draws the stressed, the discouraged and the sorrowful to the Saviour, who is the Prince of Peace.

"The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ" by Algernon James Pollock"The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ" (2nd {revised} edition edited by John Rice)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-94-1;   Paperback;    88 pages;   £6.00

It is an historical fact that Jesus Christ actually rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven. In a survey encompassing Old and New Testaments as well as Lyttleton's Observations on the Conversion and Apostleship of St. Paul, Pollock affirms his thesis with characteristic eloquence. This new edition conveys his message to the 21st Century reader.

"The Holy Spirit of God and The Great Adversary" by Algernon James Pollock"The Holy Spirit of God and The Great Adversary" (2nd {revised} edition edited by John Rice)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-97-2;   Paperback;    120 pages;   £7.00   Published 1st August 2017

Every Christian is engaged in spiritual warfare! Some attacks are direct, others are subtle. We need knowledge of the enemy but, more importantly, of the resources at our disposal. Our only weapon is the Holy Spirit’s sword: the word of God. We need lessons in its use from its Provider. The author presents the biblical data on the two main protagonists, the Holy Spirit and Satan, the Great Adversary, so we can become informed, skilful, intelligent, victorious combatants.

Hamilton Smith:

Another of the great Spiritual leaders among the Brethren, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943), born in Barnes, Surrey, the son of a sea captain, was employed in the office of his uncle's building firm, where he was later joined by his cousin F B Hole. By 1901, married and living in Sutton, Surrey, with his wife and young family, he had retired from the building trade and entered full-time upon the task of building up the church of God. Later in life, he moved to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, his wife Rachel's home county. His personal ministry was delivered in the United Kingdom, but his written ministry continues to be read worldwide. Along with H P Barker, A J Pollock, J T Mawson and F B Hole he frequently contributed articles to "Scripture Truth" magazine, which often provided the basis for books later published by the Central Bible Truth Depot. Hamilton Smith's written expositions of the Scriptures are brief: in keeping with a desire "to be nothing and to give Christ all the glory". Yet they are clear and very much to the point: "If we present doctrines with all the arguments for and against, leaving our hearers to judge whether it be true or not, we shall hardly be speaking with authority, but rather as those who are groping for the truth. We are to speak as those who, by grace, know the certainty of the truth they proclaim." He is probably best known for his Old Testament character studies, but he also wrote topical studies and expositions of Bible books. Hamilton Smith's writings are appreciated and treasured all over the world.

"The Lord is My Shepherd" and Other Papers by Hamilton SmithThe Lord is My Shepherd (and other papers)

ISBN: 0 901860 06 9;   Paperback;    97 pages;   £2.95

A collection of fourteen papers written for the edification of the saints. It includes: "The Lord is my shepherd", "Abide in Me", "Epistles of Christ" and "The Lord Thy Keeper".

"The Gospel of Mark" by Hamilton SmithThe Gospel of Mark: An Expository Outline

ISBN: 978-0-901860-69-9;   Paperback;   144 pages;   £7.25

ISBN: 978-0-901860-70-5;   Hardback;   144 pages;   £18.25

A verse-by-verse study of the Gospel of Mark, with particular emphasis on the dispensational approach to its interpretation and application.

"Elijah: a Prophet of the Lord" by Hamilton SmithElijah: A Prophet of the Lord

ISBN: 978-0-901860-68-2;   Paperback;   80 pages;   £5.99

This volume traces the major events of the life of Elijah, with all the highs and lows in his work as a prophet. He knew only too well the inadequacies of his own humanity. But Elijah knew the living God, was conscious of His presence, and was aware that prayer brought him into contact with the greatest power in the universe. By experience, he comes to understand that the God of creation, power and judgment, is supremely the God of grace. At each step, the author presents clear, practical lessons for Christians today as they too seek to present God's word with authority to an indifferent or antagonistic world.

"Elisha: the Man of God" by Hamilton SmithElisha: The Man of God

ISBN: 978-0-901860-79-8;   Paperback;   92 pages;   £5.99

This volume examines the history of Elisha, the man of God. Like a heavenly stranger he passes on his way morally apart from all, while in grace the servant of all, accessible alike to rich and poor. He is found in every condition of life; he comes into contact with every class; he moves at times within the land of Israel, and at times he passes beyond its bounds. But, wherever he is, in whatever circumstances he is found, with whoever he comes into contact, his sole business is to make known the grace of God. Sometimes he is mocked; sometimes ignored and forgotten; at times men plot to take his life; but in spite of all opposition he pursues his service of love. He allows nothing in his ways and manner of life that is inconsistent with his ministry of grace. He refuses riches and gifts, content to be poor that others may be enriched. Thus in many ways he foreshadows Christ, who lived among us full of grace and truth; who became poor that we might be rich; who endured the contradiction of sinners, and who, at last, gave up His life that grace might reign through righteousness. But Elisha is also the pattern for every believer in Christ, teaching us at all times to be the exponents, in a needy world, of the grace of God that has reached us in our degradation in order to have us with and like the Man Christ Jesus in heaven.

"Short Papers on the Church" by Hamilton SmithShort Papers on the Church

ISBN: 978-0-901860-80-4;   Paperback;   96 pages;   £6.00

Like much of Hamilton Smith's writing, the contents of this volume first appeared as a series of articles in "Scripture Truth" magazine.

"Without Scriptural thoughts as to the truth of the great mystery concerning Christ and the Church we shall not be able intelligently to enjoy Christian fellowship, take up the service of the Lord, or even fulfil the ordinary duties of life".

With this in mind, the author provides a systematic exposition of Biblical teaching on the Church: its prediction and establishment; God's ultimate and present plans for it; regulations for its administration; and lessons from its consideration as the house of God and the body of Christ. The book ends with practical instructions for the 21st century Christian.

"Extracts from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford" selected by Hamilton SmithExtracts from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford (selected by Hamilton Smith)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-81-1;   Paperback;   96 pages;   £6.00

The letters of Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661) have been a source of encouragement and inspiration to Christians for over 350 years; but to the modern reader their language and structure can often hinder the enjoyment of their true value.

In 1913, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943) set out to make the heart of the letters (and of Rutherford himself) more accessible to the reader of his day. He organised a selection of extracts under topical headings covering such themes as warning, peace, evil, the Devil, death, comfort, pilgrimage, glory and, above all, Christ. Retaining Rutherford's original text, with occasional explanatory footnotes, he created a volume of devotional readings which have stood the test of time in sharing Rutherford's passion for the love of Christ.

The publisher is pleased to make this classic work available once again. This book was originally published by the Central Bible Truth Depot in 1913 as the first in a 3-volume series entitled "Gleanings from the Past", making the best of devotional, Christ-uplifting writing of the English Puritans available to Christians of a later time.

"Extracts from the Writings of William Gurnall" selected by Hamilton SmithExtracts from the Writings of William Gurnall (selected by Hamilton Smith)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-82-8;   Paperback;   100 pages;   £6.00

"The Christian in Complete Armour" by William Gurnall (1616-1679) has been a source of encouragement and inspiration to Christians for over 340 years; but to the modern reader its length, language and structure can often hinder the enjoyment of its true value.

In 1914, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943) set out to make the heart of this book (and of Gurnall himself) more accessible to the reader of his day. He organised a selection of extracts under topical headings covering such themes as sin and guilt, glad tidings and joy, faith and holiness, strife and contention, servants and service, reading and meditation, prayer and thanksgiving, and patience and hope. Retaining Gurnall's original text, he created a volume of devotional readings which have stood the test of time in sharing Gurnall's challenge to the Christian's conscience.

The publisher is pleased to make this classic work available once again. This book was originally published by the Central Bible Truth Depot in 1914 as the second in a 3-volume series entitled "Gleanings from the Past", making the best of devotional, Christ-uplifting writing of the English Puritans available to Christians of a later time.

"Extracts from the Writings of Thomas Watson" selected by Hamilton SmithExtracts from the Writings of Thomas Watson (selected by Hamilton Smith)

ISBN: 978-0-901860-83-5;   Paperback;   96 pages;   £6.00

The writings of Thomas Watson (c1620-1686) have been a source of encouragement and enlightenment to Christians for over 320 years; but to the modern reader their language and structure can often hinder the enjoyment of their true value.

In 1915, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943) set out to make the heart of the writings (and of Watson himself) more accessible to the reader of his day. He organised a selection of extracts under topical headings covering the themes of warnings, healing, giving, longing, contentment, poverty, afflictions, persecution, temptation, contention, preaching, praying, meditation, departing and crowning. Retaining Watson's original text, he created a volume of devotional readings which have stood the test of time in sharing Watson's practical wisdom and apt illustrations.

The publisher is pleased to make this classic work available once again. This book was originally published by the Central Bible Truth Depot in 1914 as the third in a 3-volume series entitled "Gleanings from the Past", making the best of devotional, Christ-uplifting writing of the English Puritans available to Christians of a later time.

"The Epistle to the Romans" by Hamilton SmithThe Epistle to the Romans: An Expository Outline

ISBN: 978-0-901860-85-9;   Paperback;   196 pages;   £9.00

A verse-by-verse study of the Epistle to the Romans, expounding its great theme of God's good news about His Son.

In the prologue to his translation of Romans, William Tyndale wrote, quoting Martin Luther: "Forasmuch as this epistle is the principal and most excellent part of the new Testament and most pure ... glad tidings, ... and also is a light and a way unto the whole scripture; I think it meet 'that every christian man not only know it, by rote and without the book, but also exercise himself therein evermore continually, as with the daily bread of the soul. No man verily can read it too oft, or study it too well; for the more it is studied, the easier it is; the more it is chewed, the pleasanter it is; and the more groundly it is searched, the preciouser things are found in it', so great treasure of spiritual things lieth hid therein."

Hamilton Smith does a great service in this volume, never before published in book form, in sharing, in his easy-to-read style, the results of his own reading, studying, chewing and searching of Romans in order that another generation can enjoy the epistle William Kelly described as the one "which more than any other approaches a complete treatise on the fundamentals of Christian doctrine".

Written in 1935, but hitherto unpublished in book form, the publisher is pleased to make this valuable work available to a wide reading public.

"The Epistle to the Colossians" by Hamilton SmithThe Epistle to the Colossians: An Expository Outline

ISBN: 978-0-901860-90-3;   Paperback;   68 pages;   £6.00

A verse-by-verse study of the Epistle to the Colossians, with its practical instruction for the body of Christ on earth linked to its Head in heaven.

Enticing words may easily play upon our ignorance: rationalism may appeal to the intellect, ritualism to the emotions and superstition to the imagination; but none of these things will reveal Christ to the soul, or form Christ in our lives. They do not lead to Christ.

To meet all these evils and preserve us from them, the apostle presents Christ. Having received Christ, He is the power for our walk; we have everything in Him; we are identified with Him; we derive all nourishment from Him.

Hamilton Smith provides once again a great service in this volume, never before published in book form, in sharing, in his easy-to-read style, the results of his own reading and studying of Colossians in order that another generation can enjoy the practical lessons of this epistle.

Written in 1933, but hitherto unpublished in book form, the publisher is pleased to make this valuable work available to a wide reading public.

John Wilson Smith:

John Wilson Smith (18 May 1842 - 22 January 1922) was of private means. Following education in Edinburgh and Blackheath, he entered the army; but, along with other officers, he was converted in his late teens. Shortly afterwards he left his army career and returned to Cumledge, Scotland, to devote his life to evangelism – that others might know and love Christ as he did. He was early associated with such as John Nelson Darby, Lord Adelbert Cecil, Dr Christopher Wolston and T.B. Baines, and in later life Dr Walter T.P. Wolston, J. Alfred Trench and James Boyd, as well as F B Hole, A J Pollock and J T Mawson (who wrote the foreword to Thou Remainest). He preached and taught at home and abroad, marrying his wife on 12 September 1876 at Niagara on a visit to Canada.

He contributed many articles in Scripture Truth from 1909 until his death in 1922. Apart from writing articles, he also composed hymns – two of which are reproduced in Thou Remainest and appear in "Spiritual Songs": 108: "King of kings and Lord of lords"; and 222, "Everlasting Glory be, God and Father, unto Thee". This latter is a beautiful hymn of worship.

This selection of papers setting forth the excellency and sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ is taken from those contributed to Scripture Truth magazine between 1909 and 1919 by John Wilson Smith (1842-1922) of Cumledge, Scotland. They were first published in book form in 1920 and reprinted c.1930, but have been out of print for many years.  We are glad once again to make them available to a new generation.
