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.

During the Nazi occupation of Budapest, András, a young Jewish music student, is sent to a forced labor camp. Before escaping the camp he becomes good friends with Imre, a devout Catholic, who gives András his crucifix and rosary. Once back in Budapest, András is helped by a Catholic priest who gives him a cassock to wear. Dressed as a priest, András finds refuge in the home of an old music teacher, where he meets Marianna, who has secretly admired him since she was a young girl and attended one of his concerts. András recognizes her and they fall deeply in love, his cassock no longer able to protect his identity. Shortly after, the Russians arrive and András is again sent to a forced labor camp. During his absence from Budapest, Marianna is chased into a destroyed church by Russians, where she is killed in a fall from the tower. András returns to find her mangled corpse, vowing that the only way he and Marianna will be together is in death.
