The Self-conviction Of The Canterburians … By Robert Baillie Posted By: Still Waters The Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "The Canterburians Self-Conviction…" by Robert Baillie "The Canterburians Self-Conviction: or an evident demonstration of the avowed Arminianisme, Poperie, and tyrannie of that faction, by their owne confessions; With a postscript for the Personat Jesuite Lysimachus Nicanor, a prime Canterburian." (1641) Baillie was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly. An exceedingly rare item, this book was written as the storms of the religious wars between the Puritans and the Prelates were beginning to blow. These were days when nations adopted overtly religious presuppositions and books such as this became international defences of gospel principles against the ecclesiastical (and political) forces of Antichrist — and his generation of vipers.





Robert Baillie Absurdity And Perfidy Of All Authoritative Toleration Of Gross Heresy, Blasphemy, Idolatry, Popery, Posted By: Still Waters The Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "The Absurdity and Perfidy of All Authoritative Toleration of Gross Heresy, Blasphemy, Idolatry, Popery, in Britain" by John Brown of Haddington The sub-title reads: "In two letters to a friend in which the doctrine of the Westminster Confession of Faith relative to Toleration of a False Religion, and the power of the civil magistrate about sacred matters; and the nature, origin, ends and obligation of the National Covenant and Solemn League are candidly represented and defended." Here Brown deals with three major Reformation attainments (anti-tolerationism, establishmentarianism and the obligations of lawful covenants as they biblically bind posterity) that Satan has always been especially concerned to overthrow — in every major demonic move to open the floodgates of lawlessness, anarchy and misrule. Fletcher, in the preface to the 1797 edition, relates this truth as it comes to bear on various religious professors, stating, "Papists were enemies to our covenants because they were a standard lifted up against their system of abominable idolatries. Episcopalians were enemies to them, because they were a standard lifted up against their anti-scriptural church-officers and inventions of men in the worship of God.





Brown of Haddington The Lord’s Wrath Against Scotland, Manifested In His Sad Late Dispensations (1653, 1844 Edition) By Posted By: Still Waters The Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "Causes of the Lord’s Wrath Against Scotland, Manifested in His Sad Late Dispensations" (1653, 1844 edition) By James Guthrie "In 1653 his (i.e. James Guthrie’s–RB) Causes of the Lord’s Wrath against Scotland spurned any suggestion of compromises and hailed as pre-eminent ‘the duty of preserving and defending the true religion’… the book was condemned and burnt with Samuel Rutherford’s Lex Rex" (Douglas in Cameron, ed., "Dictionary of Scottish Church History and Theology," p. 381). Johnston also notes that "this was the pamphlet which furnished the main pretext for James Guthrie’s condemnation and execution" ("Treasury of the Scottish Covenant," p. 322). David Scott, in his Introductory Essay to "Testimony-bearing Exemplified" expands on these comments when he writes, "The ‘Causes of the Lord’s Wrath’ is an official paper, ‘agreed upon by the commission of the General Assembly, 1650.’ It was written by one of the most distinguished men of that period — the Rev. James Guthrie, who eleven years afterwards suffered martyrdom because of his steadfast adherence to a covenanted reformation. It is a remarkable fact, worthy of being particularly noticed, that when Mr.





James Guthrie Session Book Of The Parish Of Penninghame: Accounts Of Suffering For Christ Posted By: Still Waters The Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "Accounts of Suffering for Christ and His Covenanted Reformation — Under Erastian Prelacy in Scotland — Especially From 1679 to 1689" (1826) by Session Book of the Parish of Penninghame Contains numerous accounts of suffering and martyrdom brought about by the Prelates and Royalists: who conspired together to destroy the people of God who refused to conform to Prelacy, adopt false worship or abjure the covenants. Here is a sample of one historical account taken from this book: "Upon the Eleventh day of May 1685, These two Women, Margaret M’Lachland, and Margaret Wilson, were brought forth to Execution. They did put the old Woman first into the water, and when the Water was overflowing her, they asked Margaret Wilson, what she thought of her in that case. She answered, ‘What do I see but Christ wrestling there; think ye that we are the sufferers? No, it is Christ in us, for he sends none a warfare on their own charges.’ Margaret Wilson sang Psalm 25, from the 7th verse, Read, the 8th Chapter of the Epistle to the Romans, and did pray, and then the water covered her.

Earnest Contendings The Wrestlings Of The Church Of Scotland For Christ, Naphtali Posted By: SWRB Welcome to the Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "Naphtali, or The Wrestlings of the Church of Scotland for the Kingdom of Christ" by James Stewart James Stewart, a Covenanter lawyer and writer, is characterized by Wodrow as "a great Christian, and an able Statesman, one of the greatest Lawyers ever Scotland bred, of universal learning, of vast reading, great and long experience in publick business…" (Wodrow’s "Analecta" II, 205). This book is "(t)he product of joint authorship. The first and logical part of this famous covenanting work was executed by Sir James Stewart of Goodtrees; it bears the stamp of a mind of great vigor and grasp. The narrative portion was written by the Rev. James Stirling of Paisley, whose Recollections form a interesting portion of Wodrow’s "Analecta." In 1667 the Council issued a proclamation against Naphtali, ordering it to be burned. (Wod., II., 100.) All copies were to be delivered up to the nearest magistrates, and a fine of ten thousand pounds Scots was the penalty inflicted upon any in whose hands the book should afterwards be found.

Sir James Stewart Alexander Shields’ Book, Life And Death Of James Renwick (1806) Posted By: SWRB Welcome to the Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "The Life and Death of James Renwick" (1806) by Alexander Shields "The Life and Death of that Eminently Pious, Free, and Faithful Minister and Martyr of Jesus Christ, Mr. James Renwick: With a Vindication of the Heads of His Dying Testimony" (1806, second edition) "Let all who desire to be truly informed of the beginning, rise, height, and length of the tyranny of that 28 years’ persecution read the sufferings and grievances of Presbyterians, especially those of them nick-named Cameronians, written by the famous Mr. Shields" (James Walker, "Biographia Presbyteriana," Vol. 1, p. 123). "The Life and Death of that Eminently Pious, Free, and Faithful Minister and Martyr of Jesus Christ, Mr. James Renwick," by Alexander Shields, contains "an account of Renwick’s examinations and imprisonments at London; his being sent down to Scotland; his examinations before the privy council, justiciary, Lords of the Articles, etc.; his disputations with the Bishops and others: with large and pertinent observations and reflections upon all the material passages of these trials, examination and disputations.





Presbyterians Rutherford’s Protest Against The Assembly Of The Resolutioners Posted By: SWRB Welcome to the Still Waters Revival Books video book summary for "A Protest Against the Unlawful, Unfree and Unjust Assembly of the Resolutioners" (1652) by Samuel Rutherford "A Protest Against the Unlawful, Unfree and Unjust Assembly of the Resolutioners" (1652) by Samuel Rutherford, James Guthrie, William Guthrie, Robert Traill, James Nisbet, and numerous other Protestor Covenanters. Hewison writes of this paper, "the Protesters compeared (at the pretended assembly of the Resolutioners -RB) to lodge a protestation subscribed by 63 ministers and 80 laymen, who declared the Assembly to be ‘unlawful, unfrie, and unjust.’ The Assembly threatened them with discipline" ("The Covenanters," vol. 2, p. 43). Samuel Rutherford and the other Protesters held their ground and refused to have ecclesiastical fellowship with the backsliding, covenant-breaking Resolutioners — a lesson on faithful biblical separation that has long since been forgotten, which makes this book of great importance in our day. This faithful Covenanter Protest gives us a little slice of the Protesters views during this most important period of controversy in the Church of Scotland, for as Anderson notes, "(f)uture events showed the impolicy of these Resolutions.

Above all, when the narrative was to be one of struggle and suffering, in which the principalities and powers of the earth, as well as those of darkness, were the antagonists, the record of such a conflict fell most aptly into the hands of a man whom a monarch had in vain attempted to brow-beat, and a whole hierarchy to silence.
