About R. Nelson, Esq. Publishing
an imprint of Steward Archives, Salem, Massachusetts
R. Nelson, Esq. Publishing is dedicated to reprinting once well-known and influential Christian works that have fallen away from common memory. Each one is a classic of faith, thought, theology, and practical advice on living a Christian life.
This imprint is dedicated to Robert Nelson (1656–1715), known as “the pious layman,” who published many religious and devotional works. His, A Companion for the Festivals and Fasts of the Church of England, was one of the most popular books of the 18th century.
Give praise to the Lord,
proclaim his name;
make known among the nations
what he has done.
(Psalm 105:1, NIV)
