I’ve read the Advance Copy of Jesus Manifesto: Restoring the Supremacy and Sovereignty of Jesus Christ four times since Thomas Nelson Publishers sent it to me.

“Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him.” —Psalm 2:11, 12
William Goode (1762-1816), born in Buckingham, England, was a minister in the Church of England. He was the author of several books and penned many hymns, including a book containing the Biblical psalms published in 1811 titled, An Entire New Version of the Book of Psalms (it’s full title being, An Entire New Version of the Book of Psalms: in which an attempt is made to accommodate them to the worship of the Christian Church: in a variety of measures now in general use: with original prefaces and notes, critical and explanatory).
A Puritan Family Devotional is now available with Scriptures from the King James Version (KJV). This book was created for family and individual meditations, containing, Robert Murray McCheyne’s DAILY BREAD, Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s A PURITAN CATECHISM, the 1689 LONDON BAPTIST CONFESSION of FAITH, and selected hymns and psalms.
