The Loveliness of Christ
One of Samuel Rutherford’s most cherished writings, this makes a beautiful gift book.
The Loveliness of Christ is a beautiful little gift book containing short extracts in which Rutherford’s most helpful thoughts are allowed to stand out in their unadorned wisdom and power. Those familiar with The Letters of Samuel Rutherford will know that this collection of Rutherford quotations will sparkle like diamonds on a dark cloth in a jeweler’s shop. As Rutherford said himself: “Every day we may see some new thing in Christ. His love hath neither brim nor bottom.”
Small pocket edition, 4″ x 5.5″. Beautifully bound and shrink wrapped
“Surprising though it may seem in a world of large books, of all those owned by our family this may be the one we have most often lent or quoted to friends. It is full of rich spiritual wisdom and insight culled from the experience of a man who knew both the sorrows of life and the joys of faith in great abundance. I pray that many readers will find here the help, comfort, wise counsel, and spiritual compass that we and our friends have so often discovered in meditating on these pages.”
