Reading Bonar

 

Series Description 

Seeking, then, both to honor the past and yet not idolize it, we are issuing these books in the series Profiles in Reformed Spirituality. The design is to introduce the spirituality and piety of the Reformed Profiles in Reformed Spirituality tradition by presenting descriptions of the lives of notable Christians with select passages from their works. This combination of biographical sketches and collected portions from primary sources gives a taste of the subjects’ contributions to our spiritual heritage and some direction as to how the reader can find further edification through their works. It is the hope of the publishers that this series will provide riches for those areas where we are poor and light of day where we are stumbling in the deepening twilight.

Endorsements  

"Bonar's biography provides an enlightening vista of another age, while his selections give us penetrating insight into our won. As Bonar would wish, every word points us to the Christ of all ages and for all ages" - David P. Murray 

“This book of excerpts from the eminent Horatius Bonar is a window on the real Christ life. Living as Bonar did when Liberalism was seeking to replace Reformation theology with disguise Humanism, Bonar sounds his clarion calls: Be at your Bible; be earnest in prayer; be holy and zealous for God; preach the truth; live for eternity; shun worldliness; care to be remembered only by what you have done for Christ in this world. No message is more needed than this today.” – Maurice Roberts
