Pipeline

In the pipeline for the next few years:

CLOTSC coverI have completed work on a new book by JC Ryle called Christian Leaders of the 17th Century. To qualify for a free copy of this, a unique limited edition hardback, all you need to do is donate £40 or more to the Bishop Ryle Fund. See here for more details. It will not be on general sale until 2016. It contains Ryle’s inimitable take on Richard Baxter, Archbishop Laud, William Gurnall, Samuel Ward, and the seven brave bishops who stood up to James II. Plus my introduction on Ryle as a biographer and his message, and footnotes throughout.

On its way in time for the Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC) in September 2015 is an edited volume called The Effective Anglican: Seizing the opportunities of ministry in the Church of England. This contains expositions of 1 peter by Bishop Keith Sinclair, on Baptism by Andrew Atherstone, on marriage by Simon Vibert, and on funerals by Andrew Cinnamond. As well as a piece by me on “Evangelicals in Two Minds” and an afterword on “Do not be afraid!”

Then, in Autumn 2015 another paperback called Positively Anglican! Re-imagining Evangelical Commitment to the Church of England. This has chapters by me, on George Whitefield as a specifically Anglican evangelist, and on how to transform a church. Plus James Taylor on “Sticking with the Church of England”, Wallace Benn on “Evangelical Episcopacy”, and two chapters by Andrea Ruddick and Jane Tooher on how we can promote and encourage more complementarian women’s ministry in our churches.

I’m hoping to get a cheap modern paperback edition of The Anglican Homilies (Book 1) out by early 2016.

I have been commissioned to write The Christian’s Pocket Guide to John Owen by Christian Focus Publications. This is due out in 2016 alongside a book of Daily Readings from John Owen.

I am writing a book tentatively called Are Anglicans among the Reformed? for the Reformation Heritage Books series Explorations in Reformed Confessional Theology. This could be out sometime in 2016.

I am also working on biographies of JC Ryle, Charles Simeon, and Richard Sibbes, for Evangelical Press. And possibly also a more biblical and devotional book on the theme of “pleasing God.”

Now that my PhD thesis – Adoring the Fullness of the Scriptures in John Owen’s Commentary on Hebrews – is all done and dusted, I will at some point try to find a publisher for it. Publication sometime in 2016 (for Owen’s 400th birthday!) seems most likely.

I’m delighted to be co-editing (with Brad Green) a volume of the IVP Reformation Commentary on Scripture: https://www.ivpress.com/rcs/. I’m doing the pastoral epistles (1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus). Due out in 2017 I think.

Editing: the Hales-Balcanquahal correspondence for a multi-volume critical edition of the documents related to the Synod of Dort, due to published on that august body’s 400th anniversary in 2018. See here for more details.

Editing: The Church’s Reformed Foundation: Augustus Toplady’s Historic Proof of the Doctrinal Calvinism of the Church of England (REAL vol. 2).

Editing: Evangelical Truths Restored: Veritas Redux by John Edwards of Cambridge (REAL vol. 3).
