Classic Reprints, an imprint of Vance Publications, reprints old and rare books and journal articles that are considered profitable for scholarly research. Most of the works selected for reprint are from the nineteenth century, and have therefore been out of print for many years. All books and articles are digitally reproduced "as is"-- nothing has been altered or updated. The reader should note, however, that the quality of the finished copy ultimately depends on the quality of the original, which in some cases is a well-worn book or journal or a microfilm copy of the same. The opinions expressed by each individual author are not necessarily those of Vance Publications. All books are reproduced one original page per page (not two pages sideways) in a slightly enlarged 8.5 x 11 size. Books over 250 pages are bound with a hardcover binding and endsheets. Books under 250 pages are bound with a plastic comb binding. Either way, the title and author of the book appear on the spine.

Classic Reprints No. 59
Israel and the Church
By James H. Brookes

c. 1890
199 pages
$20.00

James Brookes (1830-1897) was a Presbyterian pastor and Bible teacher who advocated premillennialism and dispensationalism during the latter part of the nineteenth century. It was he who influenced C. I. Scofield, the editor of the popular Scofield Reference Bible first published in 1909. This work by Brookes carefully distinguishes between Israel and the Church and demonstrates by Scripture that the Old and New Testaments represent two entirely distinct and different dispensations of God's dealings with his people.
