Here's how it works...
Thomas Chalmers (1780 -1847) was born during a season in Scotland in which the church was largely lifeless and dry.
Iain Murray is the preeminent Christian historian and biographer of the last generation and the founder of Banner of Truth. He writes-
When Chalmers was born in 1780 it was about the deadest time in the history of the Church of Scotland since the Reformation. When he died in 1847 it was about the livest. The difference was almost entirely attributable to the Spirit’s work through him.
Keystones is a tool Thomas Chalmers’ vision and tool for discipleship through Scripture memory.
Chalmers desperately wanted his students to mine the riches of Scripture- and then hide it in their hearts.
He identified the key verse from every chapter of every book in the New Testament and created a tool that identified the passages which were, in his mind, keystones.
The result was a survey and systematic theology which his parishioners studied each day.DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE INTRO TO KEYSTONES PDF HERE
George Grant has been studying Chalmers- and the revivals which ensued from his ministry- for decades.
Feeling confident that the Keystones were one of the richest elements of Chalmers' ministry, George determined to recreate the Keystones for modern day followers of Christ who desire to live forward while looking back and mining the depths of Scripture to build solid roots.
The result is a 3-volume set of journals, identifying a key verse for each day. It's an incredible way to journey through the New Testament!
Chalmers posited that unbelief was the result not of a lack of faith but of neglecting the Word: "Unbelief is an intelligent turning away from the Word of God. It is not rooted in ignorance but in negligence."
At StandFast, we feel a call to dig deep, feel courage and valor rising, and live forward graciously.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon declared that “The Expulsive Power of a New Affection” was among the greatest sermons preached since the time of the Apostle Paul.
In 1819, Thomas Chalmers was the pastor of St. John’s parish in the city of Glasgow and the leader of an Evangelical resurgence in Scotland. His powerful explanation of Gospel transformation in this sermon became an immediate sensation--thousands of copies were printed and distributed all throughout the English-speaking world. And, it has been heralded as a classic ever since, both for its picturesque literary quality and for its unstinting declaration of sovereign grace.
