Leo Tolstoy: Ivan the Fool

Written after Tolstoy suffered a spiritual crisis, Ivan the Fool is a fairy tale that offers children instruction in how to live rightly, simply, and generously. The story emphasizes the destructive aspects of materialism and militarism while idealizing manual labor and the peasant life. (Introduction by Dorlene Kaplan)

Tolstoy Biography narrated by his daughter

1970 from the National Archives. Narrated by Tolstoy’s daughter.

J. C. Ryle – George Whitefield: His Life and Ministry (Christian audio book)

From the book: Christian Leaders of the 18th century, by Bishop J C Ryle

Amazon.com description –

Although much has been written on the evangelical revival of the 18th century, J.C. Ryle’s account remains the best popular introduction to this gerat spiritual era. The best introduction to the 18th century and undoubtedly Ryle’s finest piece of historical writing. Contains vivid biographies of the men who ‘shook England from one end to the another’,giving strong reasons for his belief ‘that excepting Luther and his Continental contemporaries, and our own martyred Reformers, the world has seen no such men since the days of the apostles.’ But Ryle does not write to prompt admiration, and his conclusions and applications of his subject are among the most forceful that ever came from his pen. ‘I am obliged to say plainly that, in my judgement, we have among us neither the men nor the doctrines of the days gone by…Once let the evangelical ministry return to the ways of the 18th century, and I firmly believe we should have as much success as before. We are where we are, because we have come short of our fathers.’

Love to the uttermost by John Piper – Meditations for Holy Week

Photo credit bluecollargospel.com

Pentru traducere automata, fa click aici – Romanian

The greatest love you can know is when someone lays down his life for you (John15:13). Especially when you were an enemy when he laid his life down for you (Romans 5:10).

And that’s when Jesus laid his life down for you (1 John 3:16),

  • on a Roman cross of torture (Philippians 2:8),
  • to bear the guilt of your sins (1 Corinthians 15:3),
  • and pay your debt of infinite offense against a holy God (Colossians 2:14).

So while you were still a sinner (Romans 5:8),

  • he who had never known sin became sin for you (2 Corinthians 5:21),
  • so you could become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21),
  • and become God’s friend (John 15:14),
  • and live with him forever (John 3:16)
  • and see his glory (John 17:24),
  • and experience full joy and eternal pleasures (Psalm 16:11).There is no greater love for you than this. And God wants you to know this love that extends way beyond your capacity to comprehend (Ephesians 3:19).

From the booklet of brief meditations titled Love to the Uttermost, written by John Piper and edited by Tony Reinke, to help you focus each day of Holy Week on God’s unfathomable love for you.

Rev. John Geddie – First missionary in the South Seas – READ „John Geddie : hero of the New Hebrides” online

Born in Banff, Scotland in 1815. Brought to Pictou, Nova Scotia, by his parents in 1816. Ordained and settled on Prince Edward Island in 1838. Sent as the pioneer Presbyterian missionary from Canada, to the New Hebrides in 1846. Died in Australia in 1872.

On the Island of Aneityum, in the South Seas, John Geddie, sent from the Presbyterian Church in Nova Scotia (coming in 1848), and John Inglis from The Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland (coming in 1852), saw amazing success. By 1854 about 3,500 natives [more than half the population] „threw away their idols, renounced their heathen customs and avowed themselves to be worshippers of the true Jehovah.” When Geddie died in 1872, all the population of Aneityum professed to be Christian. It was said of John Geddie: „When he landed in 1848, there were no Christians here; when he left in 1872 there were no heathen.”

 

Read Full text of the Book:

John Geddie : hero of the New Hebrides

" He urged the command of Jesus to take the Gospel to 
the whole world, and asserted that a Church neglecting this 
call of the Saviour could never receive the blessing. He 
spoke of the reflex benefit upon themselves, and of the pall 
of gross darkness hanging over paganism. ' The glory of 
God calls us to the task. The command of God calls us to 
it. The reproaches of those who have gone down to per- 
dition unwarned call us to it. And last, but not least, the 
spiritual deadness that prevails among our churches, which 
is perhaps a judicial retribution for the indifference which 
we have so long shown to the Gospel, calls us to it.' "

J. C. Ryle – A Call to Prayer

praying family

I have a question to offer you. It is contained in three words, Do you pray?

The question is one that none but you can answer. Whether you attend public worship or not, your minister knows. Whether you have family prayers in your house or not, your relations know. But whether you pray in private or not, is a matter between yourself and God.

I beseech you in all affection to attend to the subject I bring before you. Do not say that my question is too close. If your heart is right in the sight of God, there is nothing in it to make you afraid. Do not turn off my question by replying that you say your prayers. It is one thing to say your prayers and another to pray. Do not tell me that my question is unnecessary. Listen to me for a few minutes, and I will show you good reasons for asking it.

I ask whether you pray, because prayer is absolutely needful to a man’s salvation.

I say, absolutely needful, and I say so advisedly. I am not speaking now of infants or idiots. I am not settling the state of the heathen. I know that where little is given, there little will be required. I speak especially of those who call themselves Christians, in a land like our own. And of such I say, no man or woman can expect to be saved who does not pray.

I hold salvation by grace as strongly as any one. I would gladly offer a free and full pardon to the greatest sinner that ever lived. I would not hesitate to stand by his dying bed, and say, „Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ even now, and you shall be saved.” But that a man can have salvation without asking for it, I cannot see in the Bible. That a man will receive pardon of his sins, who will not so much as lift up his heart inwardly, and say, „Lord Jesus, give it to me,” this I cannot find. I can find that nobody will be saved by his prayers, but I cannot find that without prayer anybody will be saved.

It is not absolutely needful to salvation that a man should read the Bible. A man may have no learning, or be blind, and yet have Christ in his heart. It is not absolutely needful that a man should hear public preaching of the gospel. He may live where the gospel is not preached, or he may be bedridden, or deaf. But the same thing cannot be said about prayer. It is absolutely needful to salvation that a man should pray.

There is no royal road either to health or learning. Princes and kings, poor men and peasants, all alike must attend to the wants of their own bodies and their own minds. No man can eat, drink, or sleep by proxy. No man can get the alphabet learned for him by another. All these are things which everybody must do for himself, or they will not be done at all.

Just as it is with the mind and body, so it is with the soul. There are certain things absolutely needful to the soul’s health and well-being. Each must attend to these things for himself. Each must repent for himself. Each must apply to Christ for himself. And for himself each must speak to God and pray. You must do it for yourself, for by nobody else can it be done.

To be prayerless is to be without God, without Christ, without grace, without hope, and without heaven. It is to be on the road to hell. Now can you wonder that I ask the question, Do you pray?

Sinners in the hands of an angry God by Jonathan Edwards (American Puritan Theologian)

Photo credit en.wikipedia.org

Where there is talk about preaching and hell, Jonathan Edwards’s name is never far behind. “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” is the most famous sermon in American history. And undoubtedly Edwards is the most caricatured preacher because of it.

You can read the whole sermon online, or listen to someone like Mark Dever read it.

But few people know that Edwards often preached on heaven, too. And his sermons on heaven are as beautiful as his sermons on hell are sobering.

For a wonderful introduction to Edwards on heaven, I’d encourage you to listen to Sam Storms’s talk on “Joy’s Eternal Increase: Edwards on the Beauty of Heaven.” But first you might want to read the text of Edwards’s sermon, “Heaven, A World of Love.

We’ve all heard the line about the danger of “being so heavenly-minded that we’re no earthly good.” But surely C. S. Lewis was right: “If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. . . . It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this” (Mere Christianity, chapter 10).

Puritan John Owen – The Holy Spirit in Regeneration (Christian audiobook)

Foxe’s Book of Martyrs (Audiobook)

John Fox’s famous book detailing the lives, sufferings and triumphant deaths of the early Christian and the Protestant Martyrs.
This is a book that will never die – one of the great English classics. . . . Reprinted here in its most complete form, it brings to life the days when „a noble army, men and boys, the matron and the maid,” „climbed the steep ascent of heaven, ‘mid peril, toil, and pain.” „After the Bible itself, no book so profoundly influenced early Protestant sentiment as the Book of Martyrs. Even in our time it is still a living force. It is more than a record of persecution. It is an arsenal of controversy, a storehouse of romance, as well as a source of edification.”

Fox’s Book of Martyrs is in the public domain and may be freely used and distributed.

The Cross: A call to the fundamentals of religion

I. Let me show you what the Apostle Paul did not glory in.
~There are many things that Paul might have gloriedin, if he had thought as some do in this day. If everthere was one on earth who had something to boastof in himself, that man was the great apostle of theGentiles. Now, if he did not dare to glory, who shall?He never gloried in his national privileges…..
~He never gloried in his own works. None everworked so hard for God as he did. He was moreabundant in labors than any of the apostles. No livingman ever preached so much, traveled so much, andendured so many hardships for Christ’s cause….
~He never gloried in his knowledge. 
~He never gloried in his graces.
~He never gloried in his churchmanship.
~Oh! reader, beware of self-righteousness. Opensin kills its thousands of souls. Self-righteousnesskills its tens of thousands. Go and study humility withthe great apostle of the Gentiles. Go and sit with Paulat the foot of the cross. Give up your secretpride. Cast away your vain ideas of your owngoodness. Be thankful if you have grace, but never glory in it for a moment. Work for God and Christ with heart and soul, and mind and strength, but never dream for a second of placing confidence in any work of your own.
II. Let me explain to you what he did glory in.
III. Let me show you why all Christians should think and feel about the cross like Paul.

A little bit about J C Ryle from Wikipedia:

Ryle was a strong supporter of the evangelical school and a critic of Ritualism. He was a writer, pastor and an evangelical preacher. Among his longer works are Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century (1869), Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (7 vols, 1856–69), Principles for Churchmen (1884). Ryle was described as having a commanding presence and vigorous in advocating his principles albeit with a warm disposition. He was also credited with having success in evangelizing the blue collar community. His second son, Herbert Edward Ryle also a clergyman, became Dean of Westminster.

Ryle, J.C (John Charles) (1816-1900)

Thoroughly evangelical in his doctrine and uncompromising in his principles, J.C. Ryle was a prolific writer, vigorous preacher, and faithful pastor.

He was born at Macclesfield and educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. He was a fine athlete who rowed and played Cricket for Oxford, where he took a first class degree in Modern Greats and was offered a college fellowship (teaching position) which he declined. The son of a wealthy banker, he was destined for a career in politics before answering a call to ordained ministry.

He was spiritually awakened in 1838 while hearing Ephesians 2 read in church. He was ordained by Bishop Sumner at Winchester in 1842. For 38 years he was a parish vicar, first at Helmingham and later at Stradbrooke, in Suffolk. He became a leader of the evangelical party in the Church of England and was noted for his doctrinal essays and polemical writings. In 1880, at age 64, he became the first bishop of Liverpool, at the recommendation of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. He retired in 1900 at age 83 and died later the same year.

In his diocese, he exercised a vigorous and straightforward preaching ministry, and was a faithful pastor to his clergy, exercising particular care over ordination retreats. He formed a clergy pension fund for his diocese and built over forty churches. Despite criticism, he put raising clergy salaries ahead of building a cathedral for his new diocese. Ryle combined his commanding presence and vigorous advocacy of his principles with graciousness and warmth in his personal relations. Vast numbers of working men and women attended his special preaching meetings, and many were led to faith in Christ. (Source http://www.anglicanlibrary.org)
