Sale on Benjamin Keach Trilogy [Solid Ground Books]

solid ground christian books sgcb

Solid Ground Christian Books:

Benjamin Keach
Benjamin Keach

Benjamin Keach (1640-1704) was one of the best and most well-known Baptist and Puritan theologians of the 1600s. He was instrumental in introducing hymns into the church’s worship, and also was one of the framers of the 1689 London Baptist Confession. He also had a profound love for the church, which is displayed in all that he wrote. We are delighted to offer this trilogy!

 

Here are the three books in this trilogy:

THE TRAVELS OF TRUE GODLINESS: from the beginning of the world to this present day : in an apt and pleasant allegory
“After defining godliness and showing its worthy pedigree and antiquity, ‘the excellent Benjamin Keach’ (as he was fondly called), allegorically personifies ‘Godliness,’ much as Bunyan did ‘Christian.’ He introduces us to more than two dozen enemies of godliness, then details Godliness’s encounters with several of them, including apostasy, hypocrisy, legalism, antinomianism, worldliness, and Satan. We meet in graphic detail the temptations of youth and old age, of riches and poverty, as well as the joys of contentment, thoughtfulness, kindness, and love. This is a fascinating read by the most important Baptist thinker of his day, designed to stir us up to a greater pursuit of godliness.” – Dr. Joel R. Beeke
THE MARROW OF TRUE JUSTIFICATION
“The publication of Benjamin Keach’s ‘The Marrow of True Justification’ is a timely and welcome addition to the growing body of literature from 17th Century Particular Baptist authors. This is especially true for two reasons. On the one hand, it provides us with a helpful insight into their wonderful grasp of the gospel and its nature. They were clear in their understanding of law and grace, forgiveness, the nature of the work of Christ and everything else related to a clear proclamation of the gospel. But on the other hand, it helps us to see that modern errors and deviations from the purity of the gospel are not new. They are simply old heresies dressed in modern terms. Keach’s work calls us back to the well-established path of Scripture and Reformed Theology. I pray that this work will be read far and wide and strengthen our resolve to preach Christ and his gospel in purity and simplicity. Thank you, SGCB for this reprint.” – Dr. James Renihan
 
THE GLORY OF A TRUE CHURCH
“Without question, Benjamin Keach was the greatest theologian among Baptists of the second-generation. He was also a faithful pastor who cared deeply for the church, and longed to see it ordered according to God’s revealed will. In this little book, ‘The Glory of a True Church’, Keach brilliantly, clearly, and succinctly explains the nature of church polity as well as regular and orderly church discipline. I highly recommend it to scholars, pastors, and laymen alike!” – Tom Hicks, PhD Pastor of Morningview Baptist Church

Update: New Flexible Bonded-Leather Edition of the 1689 Confession. Pre-order now!

Dec. 4, 2014 updates: These will start shipping Dec. 12!

Oct. 17, 2014 update:

We are moving forward with a more expensive Flexible Bonded-Leather Edition (like the popular Valley of Vision by Banner of Truth)

leather example
leather example

When I asked for further clarification I as told:

“We are doing a paperback edition with a retail price of $12.00 and a flexible bonded leather (like Valley of Vision) with a retail of $30.00. Those are the only two options. Discount schedule is on our web site. Flexible leather was what everyone was hoping for the first time, but very few companies in the U.S. do that and it is more expensive, hence the slight increase in price. We hope to have both editions before Thanksgiving.”

What if you already pre-ordered the 2nd edition at the lower prices that were previously mentioned?

We will honor that price for those who ordered before the price change.
