Description

Letters of Samuel Rutherford

Like John Bunyan in the “Bedford gaol” (jail), Samuel Rutherford did much of his finest written while suffering imprisonment for the gospel. And who can be surprised, when we know how our Lord Jesus draws near to His people in times of suffering and when, in loneliness, we have time for extended meditation. It was out of this period that most of Rutherford’s famous letters came. This abridged edition contains 69 of the letters.

His Pen Could not Be Silenced

His opponents had meant to silence him but instead they perpetuated his ministry through the centuries for it was out of this period that most of his famous Letters came.  Addressed to high and low they were so prized by the recipients that the first collection by Robert McWard appeared in 1664 just three years after Rutherford’s death. the successive editions contained more letters until they grew to the 365 in Andrew Bonar’s classic edition.

From this, ‘the most remarkable series of devotional letters that the literature of the Reformed churches can show’, the great leaders in the Church as well as the humblest Christians have drawn strength. It is said of Robert Murray M’Cheyne that ‘the Letters of Samuel Rutherford were often in his hand.’ This abridged edition contains sixty-nine of these letters.

About the Author

Samuel Rutherford (1600–61) was born in Roxburghshire, and educated at Jedburgh Grammar School and Edinburgh University. From 1623 he acted as Regent of Humanity at the University, with responsibilities as a Latin tutor. His first ministry, at Anwoth, lasted nine years, ending in 1636 when he was banned due to nonconformity.  This barred Rutherford from preaching in Scotland, as he was exiled to Aberdeen for the duration of the King’s pleasure. It was during his two years in Aberdeen that many of these much-loved Letters were written.
