the error of replacement theology

by Pastor Andrew D. Robinson

...Addressing a "crowded and attentive congregation", in the inaugural year of what were to become known as the Bloomsbury Lent Lectures, William Robert Freemantle (1807-1895), the Rector of Claydon, Buckinghamshire, and later, Dean of Ripon, North Yorkshire, denounced the spiritualisation of Scripture, and, appealing to God's unchanging character, exhorted those present to follow "the literal delineation of promises made to the nation of Israel” in the interpretation of biblical prophecy.

The Bloomsbury Lent Lectures were inaugurated in 1843 for the purpose of encouraging belief in, and the study of, biblical prophecy in relation to Jesus' Second Advent, His earthly millennial reign and Israel's restoration. The Lectures ran for at least sixteen years and were delivered by some of the most distinguished evangelical Anglican churchmen of the Victorian era, including the hugely influential Edward Bickersteth (1786-1850), Hugh McNeile (1795-1879), John Charles Ryle (1816-1900), Alexander McCaul (1799-1863), and the Honourable Henry Montagu Villiers (1813-1861), to whom we will return at a later date.

Ministers of their scholarly calibre are few and far between, and it pleased the Lord to gather them together at a strategic point in English history, when world attention was beginning to turn once again to the barren land of Palestine. Their mandate, through he annual lecture series, was to proclaim as widely as possible he course and order of events which are connected with our Lord’s return.

Today, annual prophecy conferences akin to the Bloomsbury Lent Lectures are held in different parts of the world. The opposition to the pre-millennial message is greater than ever, but as we study the prophecies that herald the Lord’s return, let us, in the words of Edward Bickersteth, make "...no apology for this united effort to call the attention of the Church of Christ to this all important event."

The Prophet Who Deserted

by Fredrick A. Tatford

JONAH The Prophet Who Deserted

THE PROPHECY OF JONAH contains one of the best-known narratives in the Old Testament. The book is also full of important practical teaching and richly reveals the grace of God and His patience with His failing human servants.

But the book is more than just a thrilling story of God's intervention in nature or a tale of failure and recovery. The Lord Jesus spoke of 'Jonah the prophet' and this short book prefigures God's dealings with the Nation of Israel. This commentary misses neither the practical teaching nor the prophetic significance of the book.

This new edition makes Tatford's informed and very readable exposition of a neglected portion of Scripture available to a new generation of Bible students.

Fredrick A. Tatford (1901-1986) was a prolific author and an able minister of God's Word, who travelled extensively. He wrote over seventy books, many of them dealing with prophetic subjects.

JONAH The Prophet Who Deserted costs £7.50 + £1.20 p&p

This is one of four books written by Fredrick A. Tatford that have been recently re-published by STL (Scripture Teaching Library), which we have in stock in our bookshop.
