Three new research enhancing fea-
tures of the MASTER BIBLE 3.0 up-
grade include INDEX, TOOLS, and
NOTES. The INDEX feature is helpful
for storing research on verses. For
instance, you might Search for the
word kingdom. Then you might want
to reduce the field to verses containing
the word kingdom and either God or
heaven. This may be called up at a later
time for some specific research, saving
you the trouble of doing all the same
Searching over again.
The NOTE feature allows you to
attach notes either to Bible verses or to
specific words for permanent refer-
ence. And you will not forget where
you have notes attached, because
MASTER BIBLE has a List key, which
displays a list of all the notes you have
created. This is an extremely helpful
feature forthe serious student of Scrip-
ture. It is like writing notes in the
margins of your Bible, but not being
fearful of running out of space! Also
you can easily change or remove your
notes, if you discover some error.
The TOOLS feature allows you to
access any modules you have pur-
chased with MASTER BIBLE. I have
the Hebrew-Aramaic and Greek Trans-
literated Dictionaries, which include
Strong's numbering system and are
based on the Hebrew Brown-
D1iver-Briggs Lexicon and the Greek
Abbott-Smith Lexicon. This module
allows you to discover the original
word and definition behind any trans-
lated word. You may also search for
Hebrew and Greek words by use of the
Strong's numbering system or by typ-
ing in the English word for which
there may be several Hebrew or Greek
words. These may also be saved to a
file for future reference or export to
your word processor.
. Conclusion
I am quite impressed with the
full-featured MASTER BIBLE. It is a
must for those who love the New
Ame1ican Standard, the standard for
literal English translations. I highly
recommend MASTER BIBLE to any
student of Scripture seeking a
high-perfo1mance, cost-effective com-
puter concordance and research tool.
It is a powerful program with full
range of helpful options. Because of
this, however, it is initially cumber-
some to get used to. But it does not
take too long before you experience
the joy of computer-assisted research.

Sermons from 1828 to 1860 by Wil-

These twenty-eight sermons from
the pen of Dr. William Cunningham
are each theological honeycombs drip-
ping with an evangelistic love for the
Lord Jesus. Cunningham is probably
best known for his theological lec-
tures. However such knowledge should
not deter the reader from purchasing
this volume. Dr. Cunningham ap-
proaches each passage with a pastor

s
heart. He does not take the reader
down various theological roads of
thought pointing out theological er-
rors. Instead he opens up the text in a
simple Scriptural manner. Forexample
in his sermon entitled How to Estimate
Repentance (Luke 15: 10) he sets forth
his aim in his introduction: uw e shall
attempt first to explain the true Nature
and Character of that event or transac-
tion which is described in the text the
repentance of a sinner; and then con-
sider, in the second place, what are the
feelings with which this event is or
ought to be viewed." (p.20) Having set
out the path that is to be covered, he
takes the reader along that trail of
thought.

a plea to the lost to come to Christ.
One of many examples is found at the
close of his sermon on Eph. 1:22 The
Headship of the God-Man. "If therefore,

without Christ,and who have not yet
sUbmitted your hearts to His author-
ity, consider the fearful and incalcu-
lable danger: to which you are ex'-
posed, so 1ong as you continue in your
present condition. Haste and flee for
refuge to the hope set before you in the
Gospel, even to Him whp is a covert
from the storm and a shield from the
tempest. Accept Him whom God hath
sent forth to propitiation through
faith in His blood. KiSs the Son, lest in
His anger ye perish from the way; for
ifonceHiswrath begin to burn, blessed
only are they that put their trust in
Him." (p.250)
The reader is reminded that true
theological doctrine centers on Christ.
One cannot truly know correct theol-
ogy apart from savingly knowing that
gracious Savior, Jesus. Thus here is a
good reminder for pastors. Congrega-
tions do not need to be fed theological
expositions that are empty of the Gos-
pel message. Noris every sermon to be
just a message on heaven or hell as
important as these topics are. These
sermons provide the reader With ex-
amples of how sound Calvinistic the-
ology can be preached and yet such
preaching centers on the Gospel.
This volume should be of particu-
lar interest today to. many who desire
sound doctrinal, evangelistic preach-
ing, yet cannot find such preaching in
their area. These sermons, preached
during Cunningham's thirteen year
pastoral ministry, provide good devo-
tional -reading to ?.ccompany one's
study of Scripture. Although a persop._
will not learn of the importance of
applying God's Word to specific soci-
etal the reader (including
pastors) can be reminded of the fact
that Calvinistic doctrine is
Christ-centered and evangelistic.Such
doctrinal preaching is greatly needed
in our own day. This limited edition
reprint is a reminder that there is a
growing hunger for such preaching in
our generalion . .Q
