A New Day of Small Beginnings, by Pierre Courthial. This is a new English translation of a great 1996 book by a French Calvinist theologian. Here is a description: “In A New Day of Small Beginnings, Pierre Courthial paints on an expansive canvas the truths and history of Christianity from creation to the present. His interpretation of history is written from the perspective of a sovereign and personal God overseeing His covenantal plan-a design that remains unthwarted through the ages. From a heavenly panorama, he presents a clear image of history from antiquity to the deification of the modern state.”

Vlogs and Instructional Videos:

Important Note: I am continuing to shift the emphasis of my video links away from YouTube, since they have recently announced a strongly anti-gun policy. On April 16th, tens of thousands of “how to” videos on gunsmithing, gun takedown and assembly, and handloading were removed, without recourse. Please start visiting Full30.com, instead. Be sure to bookmark it. Thanks!

  1. “A New Day of Small Beginnings” Pierre Courthail

    I was not only impressed with the thoroughness but the translation was excellent. The book provides an detailed description of the unadulterated Reformed Faith and goes on describe a remedy for our fallen Western civilization. Courthial loves France as debauched as she is but his remedies are also applicable to America and the remainder of the Western World.
