An  Introduction

You may care to discuss features of the faith, its grounds, operation,

of what you are seeking from God, and how,  
with Rev. Dr. Robert Donaldson,
author of most of our Site, and of the whole set,


"In Praise of Jesus Christ",

in  243 volumes.

For this purpose, use







He has been privileged to stand for the Christian faith in numerous dramatic and challenging cases, in numbers of countries, and his careful biblical study of over half a century is at your service in the work of the Christian ministry.

On this, as a witness concerning the more dramatic side of things in the testimony of truth, one could turn to Biblical Blessings Ch. 11, and Ancient Words, Modern Deeds Ch. 10, for example. The Lord's deliverance for faithfulness to Him and His word should spur many to be fearless for the truth, which is of infinite value, since Jesus Christ, IS the truth (John 14:6).


On this site for His glory and service, appear  240 volumes, some compilations and extensions on special subjects, comprising some 25 million words and  over 60,000 pages of Christian Apologetics, closely allied Gospel presentation,  with movements into many fields, such as Bible translations, necessary and extensive Bible study,  prophecy, creation, logic, philosophy, chemistry, history, politics, international affairs, biblical exposition and gospel presentation.

Excluding the Th.D. thesis of some 150,000 words, there are now the 243 volumes, published on the Web from 1996-2016.

That thesis was a helpful background for the trilogy, near to  6 times more extensive,

The Shadow of a Mighty Rock,

a demonstration that the Bible is the word of God.
Such works as

Deity and Design, Designation and  Destiny,  and 

Light Dwells with tht Lord's Christ 

extend the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Re the work of our featured author on this site,
who is wholly dependent on the Lord, His rock,
various acknowledgements have been made, some included here.

From the International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, advice has been received  providing or offering inclusion in the following list of actual or prospective publications.

This concerns the work of Rev. Dr. Robert E. Donaldson,  whose 240 published works have been featured and distributed largely by this site, during the last twenty years. Below, then,  are some awards and citations. Some may have their own, very different evaluation of this site. It does not matter. The important thing is that people made by God are remade by God, restored in image to fellowship with their Creator through Jesus Christ, and find from Him the way of eternal life, deliverance from damnation and delight in the presence of the true, triune God and only Saviour whose exaltation is just and whose majesty endures for ever.

As to this work on the web, let God be the Judge of it, but let us work. It has been great to follow the example of Paul and have the opportunity to be "casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into the obedience of Christ" (II Cor. 10:5. 11:1), and being ready to meet what may come. Only will, never meat or substance, is back of rebellion against Him, and pitiful is the result of so much witless propaganda, shorn of substance and exposing many to the winds (Ephesians 4:14). Love does not eschew battles, but acts if there is cause for it.

This labour has filled the place of a new method of Biblical Christian Apologetics, and to God be praise, for it rests on no presuppositions, and gives not only proof of Him and His word, the Bible, and living Word, Jesus Christ, but shows its obviousness; for man fights against Him, but prevails in only one thing. This ? it  his own destruction from which we fervently through this biblical faith and this only Redeemer, seek deliverance for many and opportunity for all.


We trust He will use what He has in many ways, enabled to produce.

These last US selections are appreciated as they may help more Americans in particular, in addition to the many students who already use our site, to visit and to find here the certainty of the word of God, to be enriched by its beauty, dynamised by its wonder, regaled by its reasonableness and inspired by the fact that it is nothing less than the word of the living God to fallen man, to any man, woman, youth or child, to one, to all. It is inscribed in the Bible, proclaimed by the prophets, incarnate in Jesus Christ, the Saviour.

In such ways are we  proclaiming the Gospel, the multi-targeting divine missile of love that is sent to bring salvation and not destruction (John 3:17), peace and not pollution, that blessed eternity of divine company and not the dreadful decree nisi of divorce.


Finally, to Christ only is the honour, whose help and inspiration
through His Word and the Spirit whom He sends,
have been intense, intimate and utterly faithful in all these works.

Without Him, there would be nothing worth saying,
and no adequate way to say it!

Through Him, God as man, the Father is made manifest,
His will, and the splendour of His magnificence, in word and deed:
one God in Being, three in infinitely intimate Persons.

The purpose is to show His grandeur, pity, compassion, truth,
to invite to His word, the Bible, and study it,
to show His salvation and glory in it,

so that others may find it,

and gain "everlasting joy on their heads"

(Isaiah 51:11, John 16:22),

discern the will of God, and do it,

in peace,

as members of the kingdom of heaven.
