Book Description

Andrew Bonar was to devotional literature what his brother Horatius was to hymn-writing- a master of thoughtful meditation on God’s word. There was poetry in his soul, but he had also come to see that ‘prayer should be the main business of every day’. This was reflected in his life and ministry, as those who knew him, or heard him speak, recognized. He moved among men as one who lived in the presence of God.

In Heavenly Springs, Marjory Bonar provides us with a glimpse into her father’s heart and life – through extracts from his own diary, letters and sermons. The intention (and the effect) of her anthology is to bring the reader to the same ‘living water’ from which her father drank so deeply.

Arranged as brief meditations for each Sunday of the year, Heavenly Springs is a treasure-trove of devotion to Christ.

    This book contains 52 “Sunday’s” worth of topics. Each subject is about 3 pages long, plus a title page with a short quote and verse. I’ve found I especially enjoy books that are organized by topic; this is great resource when you have a particular struggle or study you are doing. If you have never heard of Bonar, I would mention some other authors that I love are Spurgeon, Ryle, Torrey, Meyer, Bryant, Murray, Chambers, Ravenhill, Bounds, Paxson… If you like any of those, I believe you would like this. 🙂 My copy of this book has become quite marked up in the 12 years I’ve had it and picked it up so many times. Rich spiritual encouragement.
