NPSE’s inaugural series year 2019-21 raised funds to produce all of the three titles proposed. These are:
- James Durham, A Commentary upon the Book of Revelation, Lectures on Chapters 1-3. In print and available now at RHB. See more information here. This volume is the first of a projected three ~500 page volumes of a new edition of James Durham’s classic puritan Commentary upon the Book of the Revelation. The text has been revised and collated against all prior editions and also against a newly discovered manuscript text covering the first half of the lectures. Unique text not appearing in prior printed editions will be given in notes and appendices, including some full lectures that differ from that published.
- Jus Divinum Regiminis Ecclesiastica or The Divine Right of Church Government. In print and available now at RHB. See more information here. One of the most lauded and classic works on the form of church government taught in the Scriptures.
- David Dickson, Sermons on Jeremiah’s Lamentations. These sermons have never been in print and have been transcribed and edited for publication for the NPSE series. Forthcoming, September/October 2020. This rare, never-before-published volume powerfully expounds a neglected book of Scripture. David Dickson carefully applies Lamentations in a time not only of epidemic disease, international turmoil, economic devastation, and persecution but also of revival. There are clear parallels with our own time, particularly the unprecedented circumstances of upheaval in the nations of the world. Dickson also deals with church decline and argues that its afflictions should cause us great sorrow. Yet he also shows how Lamentations gives those with such heavy hearts words with which to sorrow in hope. This edition has been carefully produced from notes taken by a member of Dickson’s congregation.
