Book Description:

Admission to heaven is promised and guaranteed to all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ but they all need help to get there.

Sin, suffering, death and Satan obstruct the believer's progress in faith and obedience. But God's grace, his Son's merit and the Spirit's might, all cooperate to direct, uphold, encourage and restore the believer who persevered on the holy pilgrimage.

Help Heavenward, a practical handbook on sanctification with heaven ever in view, is devotional writing at its finest. I know of no better book to give to Christians as they struggle in this sinful world to live in obedience to their Saviour. Use this book to become acquainted with those sacred truths of Scripture that the Spirit uses to mould our thoughts, words, and actions for Christlike living.

John Gresham Machen was born at Baltimore on July 28, 1881, the middle of three sons born to a southern lawyer, Arthur Machen, whose brother had fought for the Confederates in the Civil War. Some time in his youth Machen came to a personal faith in Christ, but there was no dramatic conversion experience. In later years he was not even able to recall the date (4 January 1896) when he had publicly professed faith and become a church member in Franklin Street Presbyterian Church. He was educated at Johns Hopkins and Princeton Universities, Princeton Theological Seminary and the Universities of Marburg and Göttingen in Germany. Machen taught at Princeton Seminary from 1906 until its reorganisation in 1929. Then he left to help found Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he served as professor of New Testament until his death from pneumonia on New Year's Day, 1937. In 1936 Machen was instrumental with others in founding what became the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and was its first Moderator. Machen's books published by the Trust are The Christian View of Man, What is Faith?, God Transcendent, and New Testament Introduction.


'Help Heavenward - that is the strength of the Christian life journey. Chapter two of this book is on progressive sanctification - about the only thing I've ever read on it that is well-balanced and makes sense. . . . That alone is worth the price of this book. Winslow is very warmly experiential in all that he writes, and you'll just find, whatever he does . . . meets the needs of the soul.' - JOEL R. BEEKE
