‘an affordable paperback containing some of the most heavenly and sweet teaching I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying . . .

Notes

David Morris in Australia’s online Christian newspaper, New Life (1 May 2014, page 15), recommends The Love of Christ to ‘everyone who loves the Lord Jesus.’

Also in New Life . . .

15 February 2014, page 16: Greg Goswell found Calvin’s Sermons on Genesis 1-11 ‘a model for how preachers today should handle Scripture’.

Terry Delaney (Mexico, Missouri), on his ‘Christian Book Notes’ blog:

found the presentation of the Pocket Puritan Gift Edition of the Heidelberg Catechism ‘second to none’.

and the recently re-set edition of Octavius Winslow’s The Work of the Holy Spirit ‘the best place to start outside of Scripture’ for a study on this subject.

Tim Challies (Toronto, Ontario) says of Frederick Leahy’s Satan Cast Out: A Study in Biblical Demonology,

This book leads away from speculation and toward Scripture; it presents Satan as he is and shows God as infinitely greater. It is as good a book as I’ve read on the subject and it receives my highest recommendation.

As John Robinson puts it, ‘the effect of […]
