Aside from Holy Scripture, there is no other writing I have found so close to my heart as the Letters of Samuel Rutherford. If you do not own it, buy it; that is, if you love the Lord Jesus and desire to love Him more, buy it and read it. There is no effort in reading it whatsoever. On the contrary, there is a deep longing for more and more, as it becomes nearly impossible to put it down. Rutherford's letters epitomize the hearts of the Scottish Covenanters, whom he would have surely joined in death by martyrdom if not for his fatal illness. The sweetness of being a child of God is made undisputably known to him who reads these beautiful words.

Samuel Rutherford (1600-61) was one of the great Scottish puritan Presbyterians, most famous today for his Lex Rex. He was an ardent Calvinist, and was awaiting trial for treason when he died. His letters were collected in printed posthumously (1664). This nicely packaged Banner of Truth set are an abridged edition.

"I find it most true, that the greatest temptation out of hell is to live without temptations. If my waters should stand, they would rot. Faith is the better of the free air, and of the sharp winter storm in its face. Grace withereth without adversity. The devil is but God's master fencer, to teach us to handle our weapons."
-Samuel Rutherford

Format: Paperback
"The Letters of Samuel Rutherford" complied by Banner of Truth Trust in an abridged edition contains letters (many written while Rutherford was imprisoned for his religious views) that are more than just important historical documents, they are edifying devotional prose. These missives (Rutherford lived in the 17th century) from the splendid pen of this persecuted Scottish Puritan are centered on Christ and overflowing with potent vocabulary and sage advice.

Rutherford on his need for the prayers of his fellow Christians writes: "I do esteem nothing out of heaven, and next to a communion with Jesus Christ, more than to be in the hearts and prayers of the saints" (p. 176).

One of my favorite quotes declares: "But grace, grace, free grace, the merits of Christ for nothing, white and fair, and large Savior-mercy hath been and must be the rock that we drowned souls must swim to" (p. 130).

These inspiring letters lifted the hearts of Charles Spurgeon, Robert Murray M'Cheyne, and Richard Baxter. This outstanding volume makes a potent and stirring devotional tool for personal or for family use.

Format: Hardcover
Title: Letters of Samuel Rutherford

Author: Samuel Rutherford as selected by Andrew A. Bonar

First Copy Right: 1664

Type of Book: Hardback

General Subject: Inspiration, Christian Living

Price: $39.00

ISBN: 0-85151-388-3

The purpose of this book is extremely difficult to nail down. A collection of Rutherford's letters were published 3 years after his death. This compilation was published in 1891 and these letters were selected by Andrew A Bonar. Bonar's purpose of selecting these letters seems to come from the book jacket where he is quoted as saying, "What a wealth of spiritual ravishment we have here! This edition is a noble volume and we shall measure the soundness of Scotch religion very much by the sale of this work. One page of Rutherford is worth a thousand tomes of the Downgrade frothiness."

It seems that the purpose of this volume is to inspire, instruct, and to inculcate the very grace of God to those who would read these letters. These letters serve as a very large door way into the heart of this great pastor. They show his knowledge and love of the Savior and his love and commitment to his people.

Rutherford wrote various letters that encouraged, edified, or engaged the recipients in the grace and knowledge of God. He wrote these letters from the view point of a pastor who was deeply aware of his charge and responsibility before his God to shepherd the sheep trusted to him. Rutherford made no attempt to be technical or dramatical. He wrote beautiful biblical theology which was coated by God's grace.

The author's style is homy, personal, parochial, and precious. He writes in the formal prose of his day, yet the letters flow informally from his heart to his people.

A very fine work indeed! These letters have a lot of insight and wisdom packed into them!! A few of the letters were not very interesting to me, but as a whole I found that reading this was a very profitable exercise for me!

I would highly recommend this book to other Christians who would like pastorly counsel from a revered minister who knew the human heart - and knew Who only could comfort it.

Never has one so beautifully put to words the excellencies of our Lord Jesus as does our dear brother Rutherford.. Oh that the church would again behold Him in His Beauty and truly follow Him into the depths of privilege in suffering for our Well-Beloved Lord Jesus and the heights of Rapturous Joy found only in His Love Embraces.

I have been reading a letter a day to wake me up spiritually before praying and Bible reading. This man wrote the most wonderfully encouraging letters to his sheep and others. I hope that some day I will be so surrendered to God and that my world view will be so completely Biblical. Reading his letters reveals to me how secular my Christian world view is at this point in my walk.
