'Any rest that can be had by turning aside from Jesus Christ is not his rest and not a rest of his giving or in his company.' -Hugh MacKail (1640-1666)
The afflictions of the people of God may be fierce, like the scorching sun. Sometimes they feel faint under these trials, seeking relief wherever they can. Yet Christ has provided shade for his afflicted flock to find rest. In the midst of their trials they must avoid finding rest anywhere other than in him. This book contains a very spiritual and attractive exposition of this theme. It continues to offer great encouragement.
Hugh MacKail was a godly young man who was going to suffer for preaching this very message. He would have to put it into practice. The book also contains his final testimony, written after torture and before his martyrdom.
