Some Help For Troubling Times

Walter Chantry writes briefly and to the point. He is plain and simple. He is also serious. He edits BANNER OF TRUTH MAGAZINE and most of his books are published by BANNER OF TRUTH TRUST. I recently cleaned out my library and discovered that most of the books I treasure now were published by BANNER over the years. They are the ones I’m not willing to toss out as I downsize and simplify.

Another connection I have with Walter Chantry is his mentor, Ernie Reisinger. As my pastor, he encouraged me to teach and write. Ernie wrote the preface for my OLD PATHS FOR LITTLE FEET (carolbrandt.net) and gently led me into a reformed interpretation of the Bible. Ernie was largely responsible for BANNER OF TRUTH TRUST opening an American distribution center and office. And he was one of the founding leaders of the church where Chantry was pastor for 39 years.

HABAKKUK will help you get thru these demoralizing political times. I know many of you are anxious about these things as you raise your children or babysit your grandchildren. What will their future be like? Will America or England or Scotland or Western Civilization survive? Are we going to totally lose our culture and its Christian heritage?

“In the Scripture, God’s severe correction of his sons has even come during times when there lived saints with outstanding measures of grace. Yet he did not use their gifts to revive. As Habakkuk spoke of his dread of Babylon’s crushing blows to Judah, still to come, he was speaking of times in which not only he, but also Jeremiah, Daniel and Ezekiel lived. Yet their prayers and their faithful ministries were not employed in quickly accomplishing a revival that prevented severe chastisement.” (p. 42)

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before "retiring" to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies. My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years. Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, "Warm-hearted Calvinists."
