Review: The Loveliness of Christ

Category Book Reviews
Date December 6, 2007

Samuel Rutherford lived and preached in the first half of the seventeenth century and yet his life and work are still held in high regard. First published in this form in 1909 this beautifully presented little book is one to treasure and keep close for referring to continuously. 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.
