'Brown's Bible' was repeatedly reprinted (in America as well as Britain, as were all his more popular works), with improvements by later editors, even into the twentieth century (and now into the 21st century!--RB). Its numerous aids... included a system of marginal cross-references novel in its extensiveness. This 'library in one volume' became as common as Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and Thomas Boston's Fourfold State. It incorporated material from the Dictionary, which unlike modern counterparts, explained basic English vocabulary and grammar (making it useful for homeschooling--RB), and often went beyond making the Bible intelligible (to interpreting it, for example the entry on--RB)... 'Antichrist' surveys papal history... (the complete work--RB) is exemplary in its directness and accuracy (DSCHT, p. 99). In Mackenzie's book, John Brown of Haddington (also on Reformation Bookshelf CD #7), a whole chapter is devoted to just the Self-Interpreting Bible. Over 2200 (8.5" X 11") pages in the complete set -- this Bible contains more features and additions (from sections on prophecy fulfillment and hermeneutics to a chronological index to Scripture history, Jewish festivals and the significations of obsolete words [and much more!]-- with 448 photographs showing places of Bible events) than we have space to note here! + Sovereignty of God in Salvation COLES, ELISHA God’s Sovereignty, A Practical Discourse OWEN, JOHN A Display of Arminianism: Being A Discovery of the Old Pelagian Idol of Free Will, With the New Goddess Contingency Advancing Themselves Into the Throne of the God of Heaven, to the Prejudice of His Grace, Providence, and Supreme Dominion Over the Children of Men...

This august assembly gave us the famous Westminster Confession of Faith, the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and a host of other important and unsurpassed documents. + RUTHERFORD, SAMUEL If Cant was the apostle of the Covenant, and Warriston its pen, and Peden its prophet, Rutherford was something more than its bard, a sensitive reed shaken with the wind of a stormful age, and giving out soft music that touched the soul to tears. He was the strong brain, the dura medulla, the intellectual fibre of the Covenant... He was an out and out Covenanter, a protester of Protesters (sometimes called Steelites today--RB), ready by pen or tongue to defend the blue banner even unto death (Blair as cited in Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 304). "Samuel Rutherford, so much on high that you wonder how he had patience to amass such learning, and write so many books -- perhaps the completest instance of absorbing affection for the person of a living Saviour, the liveliest example of a life hid with Christ in God, which these latter ages have produced" (Dr. J. Hamilton as cited in Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 304). + GILLESPIE, GEORGE Gillespie was one of the Scottish commissioners to the Westminster Assembly. He was one of the greatest theologians of all time -- almost singlehandedly steering this august Assembly at certain points. As Hetherington notes, "in all those debates no person took a more active part, or gained more distinction than George Gillespie," though he was the youngest man there. Furthermore, Hetherington calls him a "genius of the highest order," and writes that his work "dazzled and astonished his countrymen." + CALVIN, JOHN Scottish theologian William Cunningham once noted that, "Calvin is the man who, next to St. Paul, has done most good to mankind." Charles Spurgeon, in Commenting and Commentaries (1988) also notes, "I would not be possible for me too earnestly to press upon you the importance of reading the expositions of that prince among men, JOHN CALVIN!... and with Scaliger, "Oh! how well Calvin has reached the meaning of the prophets -- no one better... He labored, in fact, to declare, not his own mind upon the Spirit's words, but the mind of the Spirit as couched in those words." Richard Baxter wrote, "I know no man since the apostles' days, whom I value and honor more than Calvin, and whose judgment in all things, one with another, I more esteem and come nearer to." Even Jacobus Arminius wrote, "After the reading of Scripture, which I strenuously inculcate, and more than any other ... I recommend that the Commentari
