Foxe's Book of Martyrs

foxes-book martyrsTitle: Foxe's Book of Martyrs /Author: John Foxe

Description: John Foxe's famous book detailing the lives, sufferings and triumphant deaths of the early Christian Martyrs. This is a book that will never die -- one of the great English classics...Reprinted here in its complete form, it brings to life the days when "a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid," climbed the steep ascent to martyrdom, 'mid peril, toil, and pain." After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced Christian sentiments as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our time it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification. Foxe's Book of Martyrs is in the public domain and may be freely used and distributed.

The Two Babylons

two-babylonsTtle: The Two Babylons / Author: Alexander Hislop

Description: Originally published as a pamphlet in 1853, and expanded to book length in 1858, The Two Babylons seeks to demonstrate a connection between the ancient Babylonian mystery religions and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. Often controversial, yet always engaging, The Two Babylons comes from an era when disciplines such as archeology and anthropology were in their infancy, and represents an early attempt to synthesize many of the findings of these areas and Biblical truth.

Judah's Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright

judahs-sceptre-and-josephs-birthrightTitle: Judah's Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright/Author: J.H. Allen

An Analysis of the Prophecies of the Scriptures in regard to the Royal Family of Judah and the Many Nations of Israel, the Lost Ten Tribes.

A notable and immensely significant sign of the times is the revival of interest in Old Testament prophecy that is beginning to be strongly felt in Anglo-Saxon countries. This book presents facts and considerations which every­one must sometime take into account, for they are des­tined to become important factors in world affairs.

A reviewer in the Baptist Messenger says, "This is one of the most interesting volumes we have read in many a day and we confess that the arguments produced by Mr. Allen seem to be unanswerable. It is more thrilling than Western fiction. The description of the scarlet thread, the royal remnant, and the part played by Jeremiah in the preservation of the ruler for David's throne, will cause you to lose sleep rather than go to bed without knowing the outcome."

The Temple: Its Ministry and Services

the-templeTitle: The Temple: Its Ministry and Services/Author: Alfred Edersheim

Description: Jerusalem's temple represented not only the glory of Israel's past but the splendor of its future, when the Messiah would come and reign over God's people. To recapture the essence of the temple's significance, both in the life of Israel and in the life and theology of the early Christians, readers are fortunate indeed to have as a tour guide that eminent scholar of Judaism and the New Testament, Alfred Edersheim. Readers who want to experience the grandeur of Herod's temple - the temple that Jesus "cleansed" - or the anguish of a temple trodden by Roman soldiers will appreciate Edersheim's knowledge of and passion for the temple of Scripture.Click on the cover/title to read in PDF!

Faith and Doctrines of the Early Church

faith-doctrineTitle: Faith and Doctrines of the Early Church/Author: G.M. Bowers

About the Book: The Bible says we should "earnestly contend for the faith once dellivered to the saints." What faith was that? What were the beliefs and doctrines of the apostles and the New Testament Church of God? What happened to those beliefs down through the centuries? — In this fascinating, revealing book, author G. M. Bowers explodes modern religious misconceptions and myths about true Christianity. He shows how step by step a shocking apostacy crept into the Church, and how insidious and nefarious pagan doctrines supplanted the original true doctrines of the early Church. He shows how an ancient pagan conspiracy prevailed and how the true faith of Christ gradually became suppressed and then shows the true beliefs taught by the apostles of the early Church.

A History of the True Religion

true-religionTitle: A History of the True Religion Author: A.N. Dugger and C.O. Dodd

Preface: The object of this treatise is not so much to give the history of the great national religious sects as it is to give a history of the true religion, tracing it down through the ages, century after century by its doctrine as practiced and taught in the Old Testament, by Moses, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and others, and then extended with minor changes down through the New Testament to the present time, as set forth by Christ, (Hebrew-Yahshua) and His apostles, all of whom were Jews...
