Din categoria cărţilor şi a editurilor care ar trebui urmărite aş dori să menţionez editura „Perla Suferinţei” din Suceava. Preţurile sunt foarte accesibile iar cărţile sunt valoroase.
Am primit în urmă cu câteva luni „Privind ţintă la Isus”, de Isaac Ambrose, şi săptămâna care a trecut am început să o citesc.
Alte cărţi pe care le consider valoroase şi pe care le-am găsit acolo, traduse bine, îngrijit editate şi bine legate, sunt „Emoţiile religioase” de Jonathan Edwards şi „Viaţa ascunsă de rugăciune” a lui David M. M’Intyre. Am făcut comandă. Abia aştept să ajungă. Le-am comandat şi în ideea că îmi vor fi de folos pentru PhD, dar şi pentru creşterea mea personală (în ordine inversă). Fac parte din lista de lecturi pe 2013.
P.S. : BONUS – APOLOGETICS 315, resursa deosebita de apopogetica.
David McIntyre – e mai putin cunoscut. Some additional info, preluate de AICI:
David Martin McIntyre (1859 – 8 March 1938) was a Scottish preacher and Principal of the Bible Training Institute, Glasgow from 1913 to 1938.
David McIntyre was the son of Rev Malcolm McIntyre, (16 January 1819 – 10 October 1903) and his wife Mary Ann (Miller), (6 September 1829 – 31 July 1862). David’s father Malcolm was Free Church of Scotland minister of Monikie, Angus from July 1849 to his death. David had an elder sister Margaret Grace and an elder brother Miller Malcolm, both of whom died in their childhood (1863 and 1874 respectively). David’s mother was the daughter of the previous minister of Monikie, James Miller, who came out of the Church of Scotland at the Disruption.
His academic career centred in Edinburgh, and he worked as a missionary in St John’s Church, Leith, under the guidance of Dr John Kelman, father of the minister of the same name at St George’s, Edinburgh.
McIntyre was briefly Dundee, Willesden, and Drury Lane, London. He became minister of College Park Church, Kensal Rise, London (Presbyterian Church of England), from 1886 to 1891; colleague and later successor to Andrew Bonar at the Free Church of Scotland, Finnieston, Glasgow, from 1891. Bonar died in December 1892, and some two years later McIntyre married his third daughter, Jane Christian Bonar. From 1900 the Finnieston congregation was part of the United Free Church of Scotland and from 1929 Church of Scotland. McIntyre’s pastorate at the church became an honorary post (Minister Emeritus along with William Simpson) from 1915 due to his college duties. In 1913 he had succeeded John Anderson as principal of the Bible Training Institute, Glasgow. His jubilee at Finnieston was celebrated in May, 1936, and he died 8 March, 1938.
McIntyre wrote a good number of Christian books, often under the spelling M’Intyre, and edited The King’s Writ – A Quarterly Journal of Bible Study in the 1920s. His best known book is probably “The Hidden Life of Prayer”.
