Three volume set includes:

The Life and Works of Joseph Kinghorn - Volume 1

Compiled and edited by Terry Wolever

A widely known and well-respected figure in his own day, Kinghorn has been all but forgotten and usually overlooked by most of the literature dealing with Baptist history and thought, though he was for years in the forefront of the doctrinal controversies of the early nineteenth century.  His life and influence are inseparable from the history of the Particular Baptists in England.

This instructive and edifying volume contains a reprint of Martin Hood Wilkin's Joseph Kinghorn of Norwich:  A Memoir (1855) and the two sermons preached by Kinghorn's fellow ministers on the occasion of his death in 1832.  The pofitable exchange of letters between Joseph Kinghorn and his pastor-father David Kinghorn constitute perhaps the most valuable legacy of this work.

Kinghorn was an early supporter of William Carey and the modern missions movement, as well as a notable scholar. His ability in the Word was much in demand by his peers and much respected by those with whom he differed. He was considered second only to John Gill in his rabbinical learning and was one of the godliest of pastors.


Includes Kinghorn's portrait.  530 pages.

 

The Life and Works of Joseph Kinghorn - Volume 2

Compiled and edited by Terry Wolever

Joseph Kinghorn began a public writing ministry in the year 1795 which would continue for the rest of his life, motivated as he said by "the wish to do good and glorify God."  This volume contains two of his published works, some of which are now very scarce, covering a wide range of subjects and characterized by "Mr. Kinghorn's usual style of calm and careful investigattion and argument."  Originally appearing as separate publications or in the pages of the Baptist Magazine, these interesting works collected here for the first time in a single volume will prove to be a spiritual delight to the serious Christian reader.

Illustrated.  447 pages. 

The Life and Works of Joseph Kinghorn - Volume 3

Compiled and edited by Terry Wolever

Continuing with selected published works by this important English Baptist figure, this volume also contains book review and essays he was asked to contribute to various periodicals, as well as other collected material relating to his life.  A print of the original painting of Kinghorn by the famous Scottish portrait painter Andrew Robertson is reproduced in color along with a rare sketch of Kinghorn by the Norwich artist J. M. Johnson.  This book completes the set and contains a detailed index of Persons, Subjects, and Churches to all three volumes.

This three-volume set completes this phase of our planned series of volumes dealing with the life and works of Joseph Kinghorn.  In the near future, Lord willing, we will publish a separate two-volume set containing the complete communion debate between Kinghorn, Joseph Ivemey and Robert Hall, Jr.  Kinghorn's published works on that issue during the 1815-1827 period are therefore reserved for those volumes. 

Illustrated.  590 pages.

 

**************************************

 

The First London Confession of Faith, 1646 Edition. With an Appendix by Benjamin Cox.

Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin.

William L. Lumpkin in his Baptist Confessions of Faith stated that “Perhaps no Confession of Faith has had so formative an influence on Baptist life as this one.” We also believe its historical importance is second only to its Christ-centeredness. 

Some of the new features are a Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin, a facsimile copy of the original title page of the 1646 edition, and some additions to make the confession easier to use, including 1) giving each article in the confession an appropriate title, as suggested by other period confessions; 2) placing at the end of each article in the confession, after the scripture references, any corresponding reference to the appendix in bold print; 3) retaining unabridged the original wording, though with modern spelling, and any additions noted in brackets; 4) consistently capitalizing references to the Godhead; 5) making some slight additions to the punctuation for clarity; and 6) including a table of Contents. 

This booklet would be ideal for individual or group study or for a wider distribution. Paperback, 44 pages.
