Oct 18, Melissa added it. Sep 10, Rick Sam rated it really liked it. In Rutherford published a book defending the doctrines of grace Calvinism against Armininism. This took almost a rutyerford to get through but worth the effort.

Full of Biblical counsel. This is a book to be read slowly and savoured. There were plenty of quotes that have found their way into my commonplace book.
He lived in a time of difficulty but had his eyes fixed on better things. Would that letters or emails of this quality were written now. Highly recommended and a book that I hope to reread. I now understand why this book or shall I say, Rutherfords letters in general were so popular and why Spurgeon rated his letters so highly as well. Whilst it is quite challenging to read this book Rutherford was writing in the midth century, so a lot of the syntax and vocabulary are outdated which makes him, along with other Puritans for that matter, harder to read , I would say its definitely worth persevering through, just keep a dictionary on hand This short book was a brilliant read.
The majority of the book consisted of brief, selected quotes from the Letters of Samuel Rutherford this book reminded me of Smooth Stones Taken From Ancient Brooks in that respect , with three of the letters included in full. The best thing about this book was its devotional quality; reading this really did stir up my heart for Christ and also reminded me to be eternally minded, not clinging onto this fleeting world.
I would especially recommend this book to those going through pain and suffering as Rutherford wrote a lot of encouraging words to his correspondences who were going through trials.
