We have closed the sponsorship drive for NPSE for this fourth year. The main target funding was met and a good bit of the funding for translating an additional appendix to the Voetious project which is ongoing.  For more about Naphtali Press Special Editions (NPSE) and the prior year titles now available, see here.  The titles proposed for NPSE series year 2022-2023 co-published with Reformation Heritage Books are:

  • James Durham, Clavis Cantici: or an Exposition of the Song of Solomon. First published in 1668, the last new edition appeared in 1840. While this last edition has been photoreprinted a number of times since the twentieth century, it remains the only work by Durham that Naphtali Press has not undertaken to create a new edition of the text, going back to the early editions and ensuring a solid text and critical edition. Taking perhaps Durham’s most famous work on would mean NP has created new editions for all the works of James Durham since first publishing some of his sermons in 1988.
  • The Collected Shorter Works of George Gillespie. Volume 3 of 3 volumes planned, which completes the set with his notes on the assembly and Miscellany Questions, and letters. The volume is completed and has been turned into Reformation Heritage Books to get into production. A link will be added upon publication.
  • Because it has spanned two subsequent series years now, new sponsors for 2022-23 will also be noted as sponsoring and will receive a copy of title funded in 2020-21, Gisbertus Voetius on the Sabbath and Feast Days, projected to be completely translated from Latin and published in 2024. A separate sponsorship funding drive to offset the cost of adding an appendix containing the work Voetius did titled Tempore Nativitatis Christi, raised about half that expense. This should make a nice addition to the subject and also this material is referenced in the Sabbath and Feast Days material.
