The Robust Gospel
Also read this exceptional work in two parts from the "The Door" page by C. E. Brown.  All the works on this page stick with the more limited topic of how to enter His Rest while this one lays out out a view of the whole gospel that is robust enough to hold the weight of glory that full salvation holds. Brown gives a finer and richer definition of many standard holiness concepts than those found in most works.  Why?  Because he remained faithful to the narrow way, and in so doing  he stood upon the shoulders of the generations of faithful holiness scholars who preceded him.

The majority of scholars followed a wider path, and consequently wrote works that did not lift souls to the place where His Rest could be successfully found.

* Robust  1. adj. very strong and healthy  2.  sturdily built  3. requiring physical strength   In our context it would mean "able to overcome all opposition"  -not that all will believe. No, that would be naive. People have their own minds, so it is of personal application just as the gospel of Ephesians states: 6:13  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14  Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness.  (this means purity that has been rightly applied for long enough to become set like metal. It turns aside every arrow without any effort whatsoever.  Your protection is made sure in Him.)



Purity and Maturity
This book covers how the grace of God works, and how it does not work as the soul advances from initial salvation through to an advanced state of holiness. It excels all others on this website in the job of clarifying every detail about salvation, sanctification and everything in between. Many common misunderstandings are made clear.  80 pages by the acclaimed  J. A. Wood, who is also the authour of "Perfect Love", which was penned when he was a younger minister. This deeper sequel was written when he was full of years and had a wealth of sanctified experience to guide his worthy pen.
