…never boils and it seem as if a long-awaited book will never arrive. We are sorry to keep you waiting. In October last year Banner released Mark Jones’ Knowing Christ in the States. It flew off the shelves. We source our Banner books from the UK head office and they were due to receive their stock only in mid-November! It finally arrived in early December. We have pre-ordered so the shipment could get under way as soon as the stock arrived; due date in S.A. was 16th January 2016. We received the shipping documents so knew that the shipment was imminent and told waiting customers so. Famous last words! The ship was delayed and is only due to dock this weekend and we will hopefully have to books available early next week.
Packer says in his forward: The Puritans loved the Bible, and dug into it in depth. Also, they loved the Lord Jesus, who is of course the Bible’s focal figure; they circled round him, centred on him, studied minutely all that Scripture had to say about him, and constantly, conscientiously, exalted him in their preaching, praises, and prayers. Mark Jones, an established expert on many aspects of Puritan thought, also loves the Bible and its Christ, and the Puritans as expositors of both; and out of this triune love he has written a memorable unpacking of the truth about the Saviour according to the classic Reformed tradition, and the Puritans supremely. It is a book calculated to enrich our twenty-first-century souls, and one that it is an honour to introduce. Knowing Christ is a paperback of 256 pages and will cost R120.
Yours in the Lord’s service
