On 30 October 2021 we publish The Importance of God’s Word: Meditations on Psalm 119 by members of the Truth for Today Team, edited by David Anderson. This is the complete series on Psalm 119 from the Truth for Today radio broadcast in one volume. What is Psalm 119 all about? Just one theme – the excellency and value of the Word of God. For Christians, the Word of God not only furnishes us with a knowledge of the living God, but it also speaks of the Christ who has revealed Him.
On 31 July 2021 we published a brand new edition of The Lord’s Supper leading to Worship. This book expounds the central role the Lord’s Supper should play in the Christian’s life. Using Old Testament illustrations, and studies on the Person of Christ, the author’s aim is to stimulate obedience to the Lord’s request: “Remember Me”. On 3rd August 2021 we released the eBook edition exclusively on Google Play, and previewable on Google books.
On 30 June 2021 Rebuilding Zion: An Exposition of the Books of the Exile we brought back into print a brand new edition of the classic book by F B Hole (1874-1964). In it he expounds the Old Testament books of the Exile: Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, considers their prophecies concerning Jesus Christ and God’s past and future plans for Israel, and forcefully presents the very relevant message they have for Christians today. An Amazon Kindle edition is available now.
In March 2021 we published The Mediatorial Glories of The Son of God: seen in Tabernacle Patterns and Sacrificial Types a brand new, never previously published, book by James Green (1859-1936), with 19 colour illustrations and 5 line drawings. For those who wonder why so much of the book of Exodus is taken up with a detailed description of an elaborate tent and its contents, this book provides an excellent explanation. For those who want to understand how such a description is evidence of the presence of “Christ in all the Scriptures”, the author explores this theme enthusiastically in detail. An Amazon Kindle edition is available now.
In December we published Footsteps in the Snow: 105 Days in lockdown by Gordon Kell. This book was started on day three of the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK. It is a series of devotional impressions written as the author reflected on different Bible verses early each morning of lockdown. Most of the content was written as stand-alone impressions, but there are also some short series based on characters and themes. The book can be used as a daily Bible reading aid or simply picked up and read in short bursts.
On 18 August we published “The Lord Is My Shepherd”: and Other Papers by Hamilton Smith, a revision of the first edition (0-901860-06-9, now out of print). This collection of 14 meditations on a variety of Scriptural subjects, including individual Psalms, incidents in the Gospels, and chapters in the Epistles, is an excellent introduction to the ministry of Hamilton Smith. The author’s aim is to encourage in Christians a greater appreciation of Christ and growth into His likeness. This revised edition provides improved layout, additional references for quoted Bible passages, together with source information for prose and poetry works quoted by the author. A Kindle edition is available now.
On 23 May we published “Canaan Possessed: Studies in Ephesians and Joshua” by John S Blackburn, a greatly extended edition of a previous private publication.. A collection of articles from Scripture Truth magazine on the subject of “The Christian’s Canaan”; they explore the way in which the Old Testament book of Joshua illuminates the themes of the New Testament letter to the Ephesians. The author demonstrates clearly from Scripture that enjoyment of the Christian’s eternal inheritance begins now. “To know the love of Christ is the corn and the wine, the milk and honey, the wealth and plenty of the Christian’s Canaan. It is the pure delight of a day which will know no evening shade.” A Kindle edition is also available at the Amazon Kindle.
On 29 February we published a Large Print edition of our 2018 newly typeset 1978 words-only edition of “Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs”, This new large print edition of the 1978 words-only edition is 8.5" x 11", slightly smaller than the previous large print edition, and is bound in an attractive gloss laminated cover of a leather design glued to boards. Particularly for the benefit of newcomers to this hymn book, as well as the Preface to the 1978 edition, we have included statements by G. V. Wigram, J. N. Darby and T. H. Reynolds, the editors respectively of its predecessors published under the title of The Little Flock Hymn Book in 1856, 1881 and 1903, which, between them, provide an excellent explanation of the purpose of the hymn book and the reasons for the selection of hymns made. The list of authors has been updated and a completely new metrical index with useful comments has been provided.
On 7 June we published a new edition of the 1978 words-only edition of “Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs”, attractively bound in hardback black or dark blue leather-effect vinyl boards. Particularly for the benefit of newcomers to this hymn book, as well as the Preface to the 1978 edition, we have included statements by G. V. Wigram, J. N. Darby and T. H. Reynolds, the editors respectively of its predecessors published under the title of The Little Flock Hymn Book in 1856, 1881 and 1903, which, between them, provide an excellent explanation of the purpose of the hymn book and the reasons for the selection of hymns made. The list of authors has been updated and a completely new metrical index with useful comments has been provided.
On 24 September we published “God, Israel, Idolatry and Christ: A Brief Exposition of Isaiah 40 to 57” by Hamilton Smith, never before published in book form. A systematic verse-by-verse exposition of the second part of Isaiah’s prophecy, focussing on the issue of idolatry in chapters 40 to 48, and the Messiah, God’s Servant, in chapters 49 to 57. A dispensational approach is taken, identifying past and future fulfilment of prophecies. At each stage practical lessons are drawn for Christians today. An e-book edition is also available at the Google Play store.
On 1 August we published a newly revised edition of “The Holy Spirit of God and The Great Adversary” by A J Pollock, edited by J D Rice. A J Pollock’s systematic examination of what the Bible says about each of the two combatants in the spiritual war in which every Christian is engaged: the Holy Spirit and Satan, the Great Adversary. The book’s object is to help Christians know their enemy, and to enjoy in practice, through the presence and power of the indwelling Holy Spirit, the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ over Satan at the cross. “Scripture throws light on these things, and it is well for us to gain what help we can from it. Not all subjects in Scripture are pleasant, but all are profitable, and for our learning.” An e-book edition is also available at the Amazon Kindle store.
On 12 October we published the Centenary Edition of “I am Kept: Extracts from Diary and Letters of a young soldier of Christ in Bank, Billet and Battle-field” by C H Mawson. An e-book edition is also available at the Amazon Kindle store.
On 1 August we published a collection of edited transcripts from the Truth for Today radio programme entitled Paul’s Letter to the Colossians, with contributions from George Stevens, Douglas Pettman, Ernie Brown, George Bell, Gordon Kell and David Anderson, edited by John Rice. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
On the same date we published a new book by Philip Nunn entitled Reasons to Believe: An invitation to think about your faith. Philip writes: “This book is an invitation to think about your faith and the Christian message. To some it will help sharpen their thinking and strengthen their faith. Others will learn to doubt some of their doubts. Some may even find here encouragement to kick-start their own Christian experience. It will prove to be a useful tool for those who desire to interact with the honest questions of their thinking friends. By suggesting possible answers, we help remove obstacles so that they may see Jesus!”. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
On 12 January a reprinted edition of "Salvation" by F B Hole was released, incorporating minor amendments, including some to Scripture references. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
Out of print for many years, on 31 July we published a newly revised edition of Algernon Pollock's The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, edited by John Rice. It is an historical fact that Jesus Christ actually rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven. In a survey encompassing Old and New Testaments as well as Lyttleton’s Observations on the Conversion and Apostleship of St. Paul, Pollock affirms his thesis with characteristic eloquence. This new edition conveys his message to the 21st Century reader. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
On 1 August we published another book based on a series of articles, entitled "Creation", from "Scripture Truth" magazine between 2009 to 2014. "Remembering my Creator since my youth" is written by David Anderson. This book is not primarily about the "science versus the Bible" debate but about the more important matter of what the Bible, the Word of God, teaches about creation; and the need for 21st-century Christians to stand for this teaching in an increasingly materialistic and secular world, marked by aggressive and hostile atheism. As the uniquely reliable source of truth about all matters of the Christian faith, it should be no surprise that the Bible clearly addresses the issues relating to the origins of the universe, the world and life itself. It states that by faith Christians understand that the universe was created by the word of God. So what must I believe about creation? This apologia for the biblical view attempts to answer that crucial question. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
On 1 March we published another book based on articles from "Scripture Truth" magazine, this time written by the founding Editor, J T Mawson: "Concerning Himself". 'Drawing out from the Scriptures the things concerning Christ', this volume contains thirteen inspirational articles on exactly this theme. They first appeared as a series entitled "Things Most Surely Believed" in Volumes 26-27 (1934-35) plus an additional article in Volume 28 (1936), and were revised and published in book form in 1936. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
On 2 December we published another book based on articles from "Scripture Truth" magazine, this time written by John Wilson Smith (whose articles were usually signed J. Wilson Smith or J.W.S.) between 1909 and 1919. The original selection of papers "setting forth the excellency and sufficiency of the Lord Jesus Christ" was first published as a book with the title "Thou Remainest" in 1920 and reprinted about 1930. We are pleased to bring this devotional collection to a new generation of readers. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
In August we published the collection of articles "Isaiah — Bible Study", written by F B Hole for "Scripture Truth" magazine from 1956 to 1958, in a single volume: Isaiah. Those familiar with his widely available New Testament Commentary will welcome this volume on a well-loved Old Testament book. An e-book edition is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
April 2013 saw the publication of our brand new edition of An Exposition of the Gospel of John by William Kelly (1898), edited, with additions, by Edward Elihu Whitfield (1908). This edition provides William Kelly's original footnotes at the end of each chapter, enabling those not wishing to consult them to simply read the commentary. E E Whitfield's extensive additional notes are contained in an Appendix, and indexes to Greek and Hebrew words, Scripture references and subjects are provided separately, both for the original text and the additional notes.
January 2012 saw the publication of "The Transforming Power of Forgiveness", a brand new book by Philip Nunn.
"One of the greatest problems among Christians today is bitterness and lack of forgiveness. It spreads like a poison in our communities." This book is a challenging exploration of forgiveness from a Biblical perspective. Part One takes a practical approach to the subject, while Part Two explores its doctrinal basis.
At the end of July 2011 we published three books of edited talks first given on the Truth for Today radio programme on Premier Radio. Glenn Baxter's book, "What a God we Christians have!", is a brand new compilation of all the talks he gave on the programme.
The other two books collect the four booklets in the "Truth for Today" Is Jesus... series into a single, but still pocket-sized A6 format, booklet with the title "Who is Jesus?", and the four booklets in the "Truth for Today" The Christian and... series into a similar single A6 booklet with the title "Some Problems Christians Face".
At the end of February 2011 we published a new edition of J T Mawson's book "Waiting for the Coming", first published in 1936, but long since out of print.
By means of a series of questions and answers, it explores many aspects of the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, distinguishing two parts to this: for his saints at the Rapture and with them at the Appearing. Throughout there is emphasis made on our practical response, with the challenge: "Am I waiting for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ?".
At the end of April 2010 we published a new edition of a book compiled by Algernon J Pollock, "Comforted of God", of which over 30,000 copies of previous editions were produced.
This collection of Scripture texts, prose and poetry shines the light of God's Word into the darkness of disappointment, illness and bereavement. To those in such circumstances it provides encouragement, strength, illumination, understanding and comfort.
At the end of October 2009 we were pleased to introduce George Stevens, a new author to STP, with a book he has illustrated himself, which is a devotional study of portraits of Christ in the Song of Solomon: "Christ is My Beloved".
At the end of July 2009 we brought back into print, illustrated with a new series of line drawings by Arthur Duff, the classic work by A J Pollock on the Old Testament types in the Tabernacle, Priesthood, Offerings and Feasts: "The Tabernacle's Typical Teaching".
June 2009 saw the publication of a book written in 1935 by Hamilton Smith, but never before been published: "The Epistle to the Colossians: An Expository Outline".
May 2009 saw the reprint of the final volume in Hamilton Smith's series of "Gleanings from the Past". "Extracts from the Writings of Thomas Watson", which the Central Bible Truth Depot first published in 1915, is Volume 3 in a 3-part series of selected devotional, Christ-exalting writings of the English Puritans.
After over 40 years of being out of print, April 2009 saw the reprint of J T Mawson's series of talks on the book of Judges entitled "How to Overcome". In his usual easy-to-read style he looks at five great enemies of the Christian: the World, the Flesh, the Devil, Earthly Things and Carnal Religion and, taking examples from the experiences of Israel in defeating its enemies, describes how each can be overcome.
March 2009 saw the reprint of Ron Mahers' little booklet "What Does The Bible Teach?", addressed to a Jehovah's Witness, which compares the teaching they receive on key topics with what the Bible says. This is an ideal booklet to have to hand so that when there's a knock at the door, and a Jehovah's Witness is there, you have something to give them. See our Web Order page for special pricing on quantities of 10 or 100.
August 2008 saw the publication of two more books. First, a reprint of Hamilton Smith's "Extracts from the Writings of William Gurnall", which the Central Bible Truth Depot published in 1914 as Volume 2 in a 3-part series of selected devotional, Christ-exalting writings of the English Puritans under the series title "Gleanings from the Past"; and then a new book by Ted Murray, serialised in Scripture Truth magazine as "A Look at Nehemiah for Today" from 2004 to 2008 and now published as "Lessons from Nehemiah", to complement "Lessons from Ezra" published in 2007.
These join our June 2008 publication of a book written in 1935 by Hamilton Smith, which had never before been published in book form: "The Epistle to the Romans: An Expository Outline".
And remember that three books were brought back into print during March 2008, one from each of the first three decades of the 20th century, in the back-catalogue of the Central Bible Truth Depot:
"Extracts from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford" selected by Hamilton Smith, first published in 1913 as Volume 1 of a 3-part series of selected devotional, Christ-exalting writings of the English Puritans under the series title "Gleanings from the Past";
"Short Papers on the Church" by Hamilton Smith, first published in 1925, and based on a series of articles which appeared first in "Scripture Truth" of 1922;
"The Epistle of Christ" edited by F B Hole, which records a 4-day series of meetings held in Leeds from April 6th-9th 1937, where the speakers included F B Hole, J T Mawson, A J Pollock and Hamilton Smith, to name but a few!
2007 started with a whole range of new, reprinted and re-typeset editions added to our catalogue. Three publications bring together in book form articles which have previously appeared as series in Scripture Truth magazine:
"Patmos Speaks Today" by John Weston whisks you away to the Isle of Patmos, and from there we journey to the seven churches of Revelation.
"The Gospel in Job" by Yannick Ford takes an unusual approach to the study of this ancient book, and is available in both paperback and hardback.
"Lessons from Ezra" by Ted Murray looks at the Book and the Man.
Following the complete sell-out of the previous hardback edition, we REPRINTED F B Hole's New Testament Commentary in 4 volumes entitled: "The Gospels and Acts", "Romans and Corinthians", "Galatians to Philemon", and "Hebrews to Revelation", in a newly designed cover, and available now in paperback as well as hardback.
We RE-TYPESET William Kelly's "Lectures on the Church of God" and "God's Inspiration of the Scriptures", each of which is available in both paperback and hardback editions. We also RE-TYPESET Hamilton Smith on "The Gospel of Mark", and this is also available in both hardback and paperback editions. And we RE-TYPESET two of Hamilton Smith's popular studies of Old Testament characters: "Elijah" and "Elisha".
After being out of print for almost 60 years, we RE-TYPESET "Delivering Grace" by J T Mawson, a study of the life of Elisha which is used to illustrate the grace of the Lord Jesus, and produced it in both paperback and hardback editions. We also REPRINTED "Seek Ye First" by John Blackburn, a study of the Kingdom of God, in both paperback and hardback editions.
Our final publication for 2006 was Jesus - a true story by Ruth Keable. Ruth told her two daughters about the life of Jesus from an early age. She has also spent many years working on the staff of Christian summer youth camps, where she has listened to many questions about Jesus from young people and provided considered and comprehensible answers. Now she has brought these answers together in sequence in a readable new retelling of the enthralling life of Jesus.
The book is intended to give young teenagers a first insight into the life of Jesus. It is Ruth's hope that it will inspire them to move on to study the whole narrative in the Bible for themselves.
This was our second venture into "print on demand" publishing, which enabled us to launch it simultaneously in the UK and the USA, where it is available for swift dispatch through online bookstores.
Early in 2006 we released a completely revised Second Edition of Biblio-file. Biblio-file is a compact companion to the Bible in plain English. It sets the Bible story from the past to the future into context for today's Christian. It summarises each Bible book, outlines major Christian teachings and opens up the Bible's plan for the future. Biblio-file is published in loose-leaf format, with ample space for your own notes, and is supplied in a handsome standard 6-ring binder.
Our 2004-2005 "Truth for Today" series, comprising four books on aspects of the Person of Christ, and four on Christian lifestyle issues were reprinted in 2011 in two volumes: Who is Jesus? and Some Problems Christians Face.
