Banner Books

Of course, one of the draws to attend a Banner Conference is the ability to peruse the bookstore and buy some good titles at discount prices. I am in the midst of reading a number of books right now and hesitated to load myself down with much more, but I picked up a few nonetheless.

Here are the book I bought or received:

John Calvin, Songs of the Nativity: Selected Sermons on Luke 1 & 2 (This was the free book this year given to all attendees).

R. L. Dabney, Evangelical Eloquence: A Course of Lectures on Preaching.

Charles J. Brown, The Ministry (a gift from John C.).

James Bruce, From Grief to Glory (This pastoral care book is for parents who have lost a child. It was another free gift from Banner).

Bernard Honeysett, The Sound of His Name.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans 2:1-3:20.

John E. Marshall, Life and Writings.

Iain Murray, A Scottish Christian Heritage.

____., The Life of John Murray.

____., The Undercover Revolution: How Fiction Changed Britain.

John Owen, Volume 16 in his Collected Works.

A. W. Pink, Profiting from the Word (multiple copies to read with staff and interns this summer).

Charles Spurgeon, Autobiography, Vol. 1.

I also got some books for gifts:

For Llewellyn a collection of devotions by Susannah Spurgeon, wife of C. H.

For Hannah, Sharon James’ More Love to Thee, the biography of Elizabeth Prentiss, author of Stepping Heavenward.

For Sam and Lydia, a Word Wise Bible activity book.

For Isaiah, A Bible Alphabet Activity Book and for Joseph a Bible Alphabet story book.

For the whole family for use in reading aloud during family devotions the two volumes of biographical stories for children by John Tallach, God Made Them Great and They Shall Be Mine.

You call that a few?! Wow. That's why my wife tries to hide all sources of money when I go to conferences...
