With Mercy and With Judgement

Strict Baptists and the First World War

Matthew J. Hyde

In the thick of the dreadful sufferings of war, how do Christians respond?  This book presents the diaries, letters and poetry written during the First World War by men and women in one small group of churches - the Strict Baptists.  We are given insight into their soul exercises, their daily lives and their Christian profession amid those trying circumstances.

This is a gracious, courteous and scriptural exposition of the subject of baptism, written by the Particular Baptist pastor, John Norcott, in the mid-1600s. This edition is based on the one edited by C.H. Spurgeon which was highly recommended by J.K. Popham in the February 1912 Gospel Standard. Some modernisation of verb forms has been carried out to make it more readable.

Gospel Standard Trust Publications

The Gospel Standard Trust came into existence in 1966, to provide legal and financial assistance to Gospel Standard churches and to publish sound Christian literature. This web site has two primary functions.  One is to allow the books and other publications of the Trust to be previewed and purchased on-line – please choose a category of book on the Publications Menu on the left. The second is to give guidance to church officers with respect to chapel buildings.  This part of the web site is accessible from the Assistance for Chapels page.

Concerning the publications section, a few publications from other publishers are also included which we carry in stock. In addition to the books listed on the site, we have a few oddments, a list of which can be downloaded here - to order them use the email form on the Contact Us page.  Some of our titles are published in Ebook format for Amazon Kindle and most other eReaders capable of displaying EPUB files. These can be purchased from the Christian Bookshop Ossett web site.  All publications on this web site keep to the Authorised (King James) translation of the Bible.

In addition there are several other pages described below which can be selected under the Site Navigation Menu on the left.

The Magazines page gives information about the history of the Gospel Standard magazine and the Strict Baptist churches associated with it, with contact details for ordering current subscriptions to the Gospel Standard, Friendly Companion and Perception magazines.

The Downloads page includes documents such as the articles of faith of the Strict Baptist churches adhering to the Gospel Standard Magazine, some older issues of the Gospel Standard and Friendly Companion magazines, and Gadsby’s hymnbook. There is also a list of the names and addresses of chapels affiliated to the Gospel Standard.

There is also a section about the Gospel Standard Library which is based in Hove, East Sussex, with an affiliated library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA.  It has many rare theological works available for loan - a catalogue of the books can be freely downloaded.

Those residing in the USA might like to visit Gospel Mission Books who stock many of our publications.  Those from the Netherlands will find www.gospelstandardvrienden.nl interesting - the site lists sermons and other works by Strict Baptist ministers, some of which have been translated into Dutch.

We hope you will enjoy browsing through the site and our publications and find something useful and spiritually profitable.
