A Cord of Three Strands
Three Centuries of Christian Love Letters
Follow the love stories of those who served in public positions such as soldiers, martyrs, and pastors through the letters they wrote to their loved ones.
However, marriage is not purely about the husband and wife; there is another strand which is vital. Marriage is a gift from God and a most important factor in the strength of that marriage is the love we have for the giver of that gift. Read in this book love letters which encourage us to stick close to Christ and the importance of having him as the third strand in our relationships particularly in the face of life-threatening adversity!
Includes letters from:
* Thomas J. (Stonewall) & Mary Anna Jackson
* Henry Martyn & Lydia Grenfell
* Christopher & Mary Love
* Charles & Susannah Spurgeon
* John & Margaret Winthrop
* Dietrich Bonhoeffer & Maria von Wedemeyer
* John & Mary Newton
