Horatius Bonar (1808–1889) was a minister in Scotland for over 50 years. He is best known today as the writer of many great hymns.
"This book is for sinners – sinners, whether Christians or not, who are troubled by their sin and want to know how they can have lasting peace in mind, heart and conscience. Horatius Bonar is a safe guide. He explains clearly and patiently all that God has done in Jesus Christ to save sinners from the guilt and power of their sin and grant to them eternal life. With urgency, yet with great kindness, Bonar directs us to the finished work of the crucified Christ as the only sure way of peace. This book is an invaluable comfort to troubled consciences of all kinds." - Robert Strivens, Principal, London Seminary, London
"There likely has never been a more attractive and yet definitive exposition of the Gospel message answering the age–old question offered by Job – How can a man be right with God? Horatius Bonar’s Gospel primer provides for us an incomparable instrument for personal growth, evangelism and discipleship." - Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama
