The Poetry of Samuel Slater collects all of the author's verse into one volume. Included is "A Discourse Concerning the Creation, Fall, and Recovery of Man", which is modeled on John Milton's "Paradise Lost", yet in a much more approachable style and length. "A Dialogue Between Faith and a Doubting Soul" was written for the comfort of a troubled woman who frequently came to the author for counsel and reassurance. Also included are an elegy for Oliver Cromwell and several biblical songs put to verse. Even readers unfamiliar with Elizabethan poetry will find these works both engaging and encouraging. They are useful for both devotional reading and academic study.

Samuel Slater (c.1629–1704) was a Presbyterian pastor who was deprived of his congregation in Suffolk when the Act of Uniformity was passed in 1662. He later succeeded Stephen Charnock as pastor of the church at Crosby Square, Bishopgate Street, in London, where he ministered faithfully until his death.

In The Art of Prophesying, William Perkins (1558–1602) teaches how to preach the Word with “studied plainness,” not relying on technique or soaring flourishes of oratory, but rather by unleashing the majestic power of the unencumbered Word of God. Unlike so much of the milquetoast preaching heard today, Perkins teaches how to utilize the Scripture in all its capacities: for teaching correct doctrine, for reproof and correction, and for training the godly in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). This type of preaching changed lives during Perkins’ lifetime, and it has the same effect today. Includes a biographical preface by Benjamin Brook. Scripture references (from the ESV) are embedded in the text as hyperlinks—no internet connection required.

In Daily Communion with God, pastor Matthew Henry shows, with his inimitably graceful style, how a Christian should begin every day with God in quiet prayer and meditation upon Scripture. He then shows how to take that same spirit into the day’s events while still reflecting upon his duty to honor God in thought, word, and deed. Finally, the author shows how believers are to close the day with God by prayerful consideration of the day’s successes and failures, with an eye toward our continual dependence upon him for strength and mercy.

Originally delivered as a series of sermons at Bednal Green in 1712, this material was so positively received that many of the hearers insisted that it be put into print. This classic treatise has been carefully prepared for the benefit and enjoyment of a new generation of Christian readers. It includes the moving, comprehensive biographical preface written by James Hamilton in 1847.

The electronic edition contains embedded Scripture references in the ESV®; the print edition includes a Scripture index and glossary.
