J. Sidlow Baxter was a pastor and theologian who authored as many as thirty books (depending on how anthologies and collections of sermons are to be counted) analysing the Bible and advocating a Christian theological perspective. His most popular work was Explore the Book, a 1760 page tome that analyses and summarizes each book of the Bible.
Baxter was raised in Lancashire, England, and attended Spurgeon's College in London before pastoring in England and Scotland, in Northampton and Sunderland. Memories of his early campaigns in Essex in about 1926 survive in the Memories of C. Everett.

Another Christmas Gone
The frost white hill still glistens,
Beneath the moonlit skies,
As on the night of Christmas,
Untrod it sleeping lies.
A newborn year is waiting,
To meet the early dawn;
And whisper this to all the world,
Another Christmas gone.
The holly berry changes,
It's coat of emerald red;
And wreaths we twin'd but lately,
Hang, all their verdure ...read
Are All Believers Overcomers?
"To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My Throne."--Rev. 3:21.
In this promise our Lord is referring, of course, to His Messianic throne and His millennial reign. When He comes again, in power and glory, then will He lift His resistless rod over the nations, and unfurl the banner of world-wide empire. The evil one shall be inter ...read
Our Bible: The Most Critical Issue
Christianity is based on a book. It centres in a Person. It expresses itself in a message. It authenticates itself in an experience.
That basic book is the Bible. That central Person is Jesus.
That expressive message is the Gospel. That authenticating experience is the new birth.
Think here about that basic book. Christianity stands or fal ...read
Sanctification and Heredity
IN OUR reflections on sanctification according to orthodox Calvinism we encountered what I can only call the deadly dogma that the very guilt of Adam is imputed to all his posterity, the fearful concomitant of which is, that thousands of millions have been divinely predestined to a never-ending damnation through a transgression of which2 they are i ...read
The Lamb of God - The Vital Focus-Point
"Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" -John 1: 29.
IF ever-Christian believers needed to echo and re-echo these words of John the Baptist, they do today. We are not fond of flinging aspersions; yet we cannot help openly lamenting that many so-called Christian pulpits and churches are doing anything except exhorting men ...read
The Wonder of Wonders
"He gave His only-begotten Son."-- Jn. 3: 16.
That word "gave" has in it the force of "gave up". As an old commentator says. "God not only gave His Son to the world, but for it".
That meant the birth in the cattle-shed at Bethlehem, the struggle with poverty at Nazareth, the carpenter's bench, the being "tempted in all points like as we are ...read
True Consecration to Christ
True consecration to Christ simplifies life, for it leaves the management to HIM. It also unifies life, for it blends all our motives and activities in on all-controlling aim to please HIM. It purifies life, for it expels all that is disapproved by HIM. It amplifies life, for it gives the divine will spacious fulfillment through us to uplift HIM. A ...read
