Review: The Loveliness of Christ

These short pieces taken from Samuel Rutherford’s letters are in the words of the foreword ‘full of rich spiritual wisdom and insight culled from the experience of a man who knew both the sorrows of life and the joys of faith in great abundance.’ Here are gems suitable for all denominations. A wonderful little book to own and to give away.
