“Prefatory Note: By the Bishop of Durham:
This book, a small casket stored with many jewels, will have, I hope, a wide circulation. Yet more I hope that it will go deep as well as far, and imprint, by the Grace of God, upon all its readers’ souls something of that supreme content and delight in the Lord Jesus which were the light of life to Samuel Rutherford. Nothing is more needed in our day in the Christian Church than a larger sight, by faith, of ‘The King in His beauty”. We hear much of many things, but too little of Him.
To read Rutherford, in sympathy and with prayer, is a powerful and beautiful help towards that ‘beautific vision” of our Redeemer which may be ours even here below – Handley Dunelm.”
