Edward Dennett
1831 - 1914

      Edward Dennett was born in the Isle of Wight, at Bembridge, and died in Croydon after a short illness. His people were all in the Church of England, but he was converted as a lad through the instrumentality of a godly clergyman, and he left the church from conviction and became minister of a Baptist Chapel in Greenwich, having previously matriculated at London University.

      In 1873 he contracted a severe illness through visiting one of his parishioners, and was sent abroad for a year by his people. He wintered at Veytaux, and coming in contact with 'brethren' staying at the same 'pension', he had a good deal of intercourse with them, which helped to clear in his mind certain difficulties that he had.

      Taking no steps till his return, he explained his views and resigned his charge. Shortly after 'breaking bread' for the first time with those gathered simply at the Lord's table "unto His Name".

      Mr. Dennett had the pen of a ready writer. His sphere of labour was England, Ireland, and Scotland, and he paid visits to Norway, Sweden, and America. He had pastoral and teaching gifts of a high order.

      Eph. 3:18 There are two ways in which we may fall into sectarianism.

An Exposition of Second Timothy - Table of Contents
      There is a great and felt difference between the first and second epistles to Timothy. The former contemplates the assembly in its pristine order, with everything regulated by the divine word; the latter deals with the path of the faithful in a time of confusion and departure from the truth. There are two verses which express this difference. In th ...read
ArticleExpository Jotting - "Accepted in the Beloved."
      As to the meaning of this phrase we cite a note from the New Translation by J.N.D. He says, after giving the Greek word, "taken us into His favour," "put us into a position of grace and favour." "Accepted us" is too formal a doctrine here, not so general as χ'ρ'τ'ω (the Greek word used). But "shewn us grace or favour" does not give the force ...read
ArticleThe Three Marys as Presented in the Gospels
       PREFATORY. BY "the three Marys" it is not meant that there are not other Marys in the New Testament, only that the three selected -- Mary the mother of our Lord, Mary of Bethany, and Mary Magdalene -- occupy a specially prominent place. It must indeed be apparent to every reader of the Scriptures that these three were distinctly chosen of God ...read
ArticleThe Three Raisings of the Dead
       Mark 5: 22-43; Luke 7: 11-16; John 11. Three times only, as far as we know, did the Lord Jesus, while upon earth, raise the dead to life; viz., the daughter of Jairus, the son of the widow of Nain, and Lazarus. Each of these cases has its special characteristics and instruction. The daughter of Jairus had but just expired when the Lord entered ...read
LetterTwelve Letters to Young Believers
       PREFACE These letters to young believers are reprinted, without alteration, from the Christian's Friend magazine. They were originally written by the editor for the help of one who had but recently been converted, and who had never the opportunity of listening to oral teaching. But in as much as the subjects of which they treat are of vital an ...read
