Please note though that my co-publisher, RHB, may have distribution later in the year to Canada, the U.K. and Australia; possibly elsewhere. If you can wait you may be able to save on postage. Stay tuned to their website for details. However, if you want the book as soon as possible, I’m happy to take the order. More information including a 78 page extract including the extensive table of chapters and subtopics is online at Prepub offer: Sabbathum Veteris Et Novi Testamenti: or, The True Doctrine of the Sabbath | Naphtali Press.

Nicholas Bownd, Sabbathum Veteris Et Novi Testamenti: or, The True Doctrine of the Sabbath (Naphtali Press and Reformation Heritage Books, forthcoming Spring, 2015) 592pp. Hard bound, smyth sewn, dust jacket.

Commendations.
It is astonishing that the Puritan Nicholas Bownd's famous work on the Sabbath, which greatly influenced later Puritanism and the Westminster Assembly, and by extension, Western Christendom for centuries, has not been printed in a critical edition with modern typeface long ago. Not reprinted since 1606, this classic work emphasizes the fourth commandment's morally binding character, the divine institution of the entire Sabbath as the Lord's Day set apart to worship God, and the cessation of non-religious activities that distract from worship and acts of mercy. I am so grateful that it is back in print, and pray that it will do much good to restore the value and enhance the joy of the Lord's Day for many believers around the world.
--- Joel R. Beeke, co-author of Meet the Puritans and A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life, and president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

After four centuries of rest, Nicholas Bownd's famous book on the Sabbath has re-Bownded. Attractively printed, this work is a critical edition of the 1595 version and the expanded 1606 edition. Coldwell has painstakingly collated and meticulously annotated the two so as to allow Bownd's classic Puritan doctrine of the Lord's day Sabbath to be published afresh. Lovers of the Scriptures as interpreted by the Westminster Standards will rejoice. May all glory redound to the Eschatological Lord of Sabbath rest, as it did four centuries ago.
--James T. Dennison, Jr., author of The Market Day of the Soul: The Puritan Doctrine of the Sabbath in England, 1532-1700; and Academic Dean and Professor of Church History and Biblical Theology, Northwest Theological Seminary, Lynnwood, Washington.


"Those with an interest in developments leading up to the formulation of the Sabbath doctrine taught in the Westminster standards will benefit from this careful documentation and analysis of the views of Nicholas Bownd."
--Richard B. Gaffin, Jr., author of Calvin and the Sabbath; Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary.

Nicholas Bownd's work, The True Doctrine of the Sabbath, occupies a hugely significant place among Puritan works on polemical and practical divinity. For its scope, detail, and erudition, this work on the Sabbath is unparalleled in the Puritan tradition-indeed, perhaps even in the Christian tradition. Particularly illuminating are Bownd's "spiritual exercises," which clearly had an influence upon the later Puritan attitudes regarding the practical implications of Sabbath-keeping and worship. As an added bonus to the content of this book, the editorial work on this book is first-class, and makes for far more enjoyable and easier reading than a simple re-print.
--Mark Jones, co-author of A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life; and Minister at Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church (PCA).

The True Doctrine of the Sabbath by Nicholas Bownd is at the printer and I have the proofs in hand to approve on Monday and we should be scheduled soon thereafter and have a ship date. Many thanks to those who have already ordered. This is an important work (confirmed by the significant commitment from Reformation Heritage Books to co-publish a large print run). This book was the first scholarly work expounding the "Puritan" view of the fourth commandment, which has fallen on hard times today. Western 'Christian' society today has no better, and almost surely far worse a few of the Lord's Day, than at the time the author wrote in 1595/1606. May he speak again as powerfully to this day as he did to his own.

A lack of reverence for the the Lord's day was one of the reasons why we decided to leave our previous fellowship. Yet when we left, the pastor claimed that the church was radically reformed and that the church holds to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.
