This book is a must read for anyone seeking the assurance and peace of mind that their salvation, once received, is forever and can never be lost. It is also a must read for those who want to defend this precious doctrine and pass along to fellow believers the truth that will set them free. No longer will it be necessary to walk on egg shells, trying to keep what only God can keep. This book will enlighten the understanding of its readers to see the truth that their new position in Christ is absolutely perfect before God, while their practice is flawed. It will also reveal that God's work of justification declares them righteous forever, while His work of sanctification makes them righteous in their behavior. A number of other theological distinctions will be made to help the readers understand the permanency of their salvation, such as: the differences between salvation faith and service faith, innate knowledge and head knowledge, sinner and saint, the believer's relationship with God and his fellowship with God, judicial forgiveness and parental forgiveness, and a distinction between the words faith of Christ and faith in Christ. This book will also reveal the warfare that goes on in the minds of believers, preventing them from going for broke and trusting in Christ and Christ alone for their salvation. To trust in Christ plus one's own ability to maintain a certain level of faith is not to trust in Christ alone do complete what He has started but to trust in Christ plus human effort. The truth of once saved always saved will motivate believers to serve God, not out of a fear of losing their salvation, but out of gratitude that they are kept by God's power to serve others and can never be lost.

H. J. Massingham (1888-1952) was renowned as a prolific writer on matters relating to the British countryside. In this volume, which was originally published in 1939, Massingham provides a rich and detailed description of traditional agricultural husbandry and the rural crafts inseparable from it. Written in consultation with various practitioners of these crafts, the text reveals a subtle interrelationship between man and nature based on centuries-old processes. Rather than taking a nostalgic approach to these processes, Massingham regards them as the sensible alternative to the 'scientific agriculture' of mechanised farming. Numerous illustrations are included alongside the descriptions of various crafts. This is a fascinating volume that will be of value to anyone with an interest in British agriculture, traditional crafts, and the history of land use.

NOW UPDATED to include material on the Discworld books up to Raising Steam. Most of us grow up having always known to touch wood or cross our fingers, and what happens when a princess kisses a frog or a boy pulls a sword from a stone, yet sadly some of these things are now beginning to be forgotten. Legends, myths, fairytales: our world is made up of the stories we told ourselves about where we came from and how we got there. It is the same on Discworld, except that beings which on Earth are creatures of the imagination - like vampires, trolls, witches and, possibly, gods - are real, alive and in some cases kicking on the Disc. In The Folklore of Discworld, Terry Pratchett teams up with leading British folklorist Jacqueline Simpson to take an irreverent yet illuminating look at the living myths and folklore that are reflected, celebrated and affectionately libelled in the uniquely imaginative universe of Discworld.

Shakespeare and his work have inspired many books by literary scholars and historians throughout the century. What can we know about a man of whom nothing is known, except what he chose to let his characters say and do? Can there really be any certainty about Shakespeare’s opinions, thoughts, ideas, even on the most trivial matters? Isn’t this a dangerous confusion of person and fiction? This essay will not try to find certainty among the many statements made about author and work over the years but try to relate some of Shakespeare’s ‘non-historical’ plays to contemporary politics – one part dedicated to the English Renaissance as a century of change and progress, the other part literary analysis of Shakespeare’s plays with consideration of this political zeitgeist.
