By William & Colleen Dedrick
William and Colleen Dedrick made their home in beautiful rural WashingtonState, where they raised their two children, now grown up.The Dedricks first published The Little Book in 1985 out of a desire to share their discovery that well-mannered children of strong character can be reared in this age of self-indulgence.

THE DOCTRINE OF REPENTANCE
By Thomas Watson
A good case could be made out for believing that repentance is one of the least used words in the Christian church today. In a world that will not tolerate the mention of sin, and in churches where it has been defined only in sociological terms, the biblical teaching on repentance has inevitably been ignored. Only occasionally has a book or booklet been published, or a sermon preached, on the theme.
Knowing what repentance is, and actually repenting are essential to true Christianity. Jesus Christ himself said that if we do not repent, we will perish! It is vital, therefore, to read and study what Scripture has to say about this theme.
By R. B. Kuiper
Here, writes John Murray, we have the theology of evangelism, and evangelism without scriptural theology has lost its moorings. R. B. Kuipers writing, as his preaching and lecturing, was always characterized by clarity and simplicity.
The book begins with God as the author of evangelism, and shows the relation of his love, election, covenant and commission to it. There are chapters on the scope, urgency, motive, aim, agent, approach, means, message, method, effectiveness and triumph of evangelism. Dr. Kuiper also deals with zeal for, co-operation in, and resistance to evangelism.
THE PLIGHT OF MAN AND THE POWER OF GOD
By D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
In these five powerful messages based on verses selected from the first chapter of the Book of Romans, Dr. Lloyd-Jones boldly confronts a fragmented world with the authority of the Gospel. He calls for a renewal of the church and challenges Christians to restore the self-discipline that strengthened the early church.
Although the chapters initially were lectures in Edinburgh during World War II, these rich expositions speak pertinently and forcefully to Christians today.

CHRISTS WORDS FROM THE CROSS
By Charles H. Spurgeon
As not a bone of Him shall be broken, so not a word shall be lost. The Holy Spirit took special care that each of the sacred utterances should be fittingly recorded. Our Lord in His death-cries, as in all else, was perfection itself. There is a fullness of meaning in each utterance which no man shall be able fully to bring forth, and when combined they make up a vast deep of thought, which no human line can fathom.
Here, as everywhere else, we are constrained to say to our Lord, Never man spake like this man. Amid all the anguish of His spirit His last words prove Him to have remained fully self-possessed, true to His forgiving nature, true to His kingly office, true to His filial relationship, true to His God, true to His love of the written Word, true to His glorious work, and true to His faith in His Father.

ENCOURAGING ONE ANOTHER
By Dr. Gene A. Getz
Encouraging one another is one of the most dominant themes in the New Testament, both in the process of starting churches and building them toward maturity. The basic concept is used over 100 times in the Book of Acts and the Epistles.
We cannot grow spiritually as we ought to in isolation from one another. We need to be supporting each other in love and prayer. One way to demonstrate our concern is by encouraging one another.

PRAY WITH YOUR EYES OPEN
By Richard L. Pratt, Jr.
My prayers never seem to go anywhere.

In this instructive yet often entertaining book, he offers clear biblical direction on how to pray more effectively.

Pratt tackles head-on the issues that can puzzle us the most.
The World That Perished
By John C. Whitcomb
This is a well researched document of the cataclysmic Deluge testifying of the judgment of God. The treatise strongly refutes the uniformitarian notion of geologic change and other concepts that are willingly&ignorant (2 Pet 3:5). Besides being founded on sound theology, this book also relates to contemporary scientific knowledge. The basis of Dr. Whitcombs argument is that the Bible is the word of God, recording catastrophic events for our learning and edification.
