Anything by this remarkable thinker and preacher (who was a key guest at the opening of Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle) constitutes accessible riches. He is as clear as he is profound. This grand work shows just how to apply the doctrines of the faith to personal trials and needs. It is a true 'how to' book, teaching young believers and veterans alike how to trust more, love more, give thanks more, pray more, and more fervently, and suffer more, if God so calls us. All is presented in the spirit of Watts (quoted): 'The volume of my Father's grace, Does all my grief assuage; There I behold my Saviour's face, Almost in every page. I'll read the histories of Thy love, And keep Thy laws in sight, While through Thy promises I rove, With ever fresh delight.
May this author lead many readers yet to possess the precious things of Christ in all life's circumstances.
