Erosion of Calvinist Orthodoxy Seceders and Subscription in Scottish Presbyterianism
1992 0-7734-1643-9
This work traces some aspects of the erosion of Westminster Calvinism among Scottish seceders during the years 1733 -1879. It argues that although this process did not reach its peak until 1879, a significant departure from Westminster Calvinism occurred during the Atonement Controversy in the 1840s. The importance of the United Presbyterian Church Declaratory Act of 1879 lay in its giving de jure authority to ministers of the denomination to deviate from the teaching of the Westminster standards on matters which did not enter the `substance of faith' - a position which `legalized' the de facto authority which many had been exercising for a number of years.

Essays in Calvinist Social Theory. What Do Religion, Politics and Science Contribute to the Good Society
2016 1-4955-0498-0
This book, not an original work of the author but a graduate school project, collects essays that apply Calvinist political theology to a wide range of social issues. Calvinism’s impact upon society is so great that it has frequently been accused of being the cause of all the problems of modernity: the destruction of organic community, the domination of technology, the universalization of rationality, and a cost-benefit economic approach to all problems in life.

Faithful Ethics According to John Calvin the Teachability of the Heart
1997 0-7734-8521-X
This volume argues that neither theoretical nor confessional approaches to the relationship of faith and ethics can adequately address the issues involved. It draws on conceptual tools from the work of Bernard Lonergan to show that attention needs to shift from content to method. Using the work of John Calvin, it shows that faith shaped ethics. The volume contains an annotated translation and extended commentary of Calvin's Letter to Sachinus on Lending at Interest. This text is generally recognized by economic historians as an important one for understanding the development of early modern capitalism. The translators of existing versions in French and English do not have a background in Renaissance economic history, and this version corrects some problems with those texts. The commentary provides a substantial analysis of classical and Renaissance views of what an economy is and the meaning of economic transactions in human living. It places Calvin's theological work into the context of the general ethical dynamism of the Renaissance. This reappraisal of Calvin's thought will most certainly generate debate among moral theologians and specialists of Calvin. It also provides evidence of the relevance of these conceptual tools for the studies of history and theological ethics.

George Whitefield and Welsh Calvinistic Methodism
1996 0-7734-8758-1
This study deals with the Welsh revival movement of the 18th century and the remarkable way that George Whitefield fitted into it. He was a Calvinist who believed that one could be both a Methodist and a Calvinist. The leaders of the Welsh revival were also Calvinistic and welcomed him. The book traces the beginnings and development of the movement, carrying it up to the present day and showing changes in beliefs. A pocket of Welsh immigrants brought this church to America in upstate New York where it later (in the 20's) united with the Presbyterians.

John Calvin’s Rhetorical Doctrine of Sin
2001 0-7734-7618-0
This is the first book in more than sixty years to offer a scholarly account of Calvin’s perspectives on human fault. Through a careful reading of the Institutes of the Christian Religion, the author argues that Calvin writes with the specific political purpose of defending persecuted Protestants in France. The study demonstrates that his humanist education prepared Calvin for practical argumentation on behalf of social change. Calvin is depicted as an engaged political actor, thoroughly attuned to the practical requirements of his age. His theology then becomes an important precedent for a thoroughly contextual understanding of Christian doctrinal reflection.

Life of the Rev. James Renwick Jackson, Presbyterian Minister in Pennsylvania (1905-1953)
2005 0-7734-6331-3
This book tells the story of Rev. James Renwick Jackson (1905–1953), who rose from humble beginnings in Philadelphia to become one of the leading Presbyterian ministers in the United States in the 1940s and 1950s. Though his life was cut short by cancer, Rev. Jackson inspired thousands of members of three churches in Philadelphia, Tyrone and Erie, PA. Rev. Jackson rebuilt the First Presbyterian Church of Erie after a devastating fire in 1944, and even after he had fallen ill, he was determined to comfort and serve members of his congregation.

Rev. Jackson is also part of a remarkable family. Three of his brothers became Presbyterian ministers, and nine members of the next generation entered the ministry. Rev. Jackson’s brothers and children appear throughout the narrative of his life, and an epilogue summarizes the work of the family since his death. Four of Rev. Jackson’s sermons are also included in this book. Written by his daughter and drawing on rare primary documents, this book is not only an inspirational biography, it also contains a great deal of practical advice on about building a ministry.
