Though not as well known as The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life
, this book can truly be called a Christian classic. The title is a perfect description of the book's contents, as it is an exposition of the character of God. It is not a 'how-to' book as much as a 'God-is' book. --Kenneth McIntosh, M.Div., introduction author
Abridged and updated for today’s reader, this late nineteenth-century study—now available in a deluxe, leather-like binding—reminds Christians of God’s many promises of comfort, help, and love. Addressing His powerful names, His role as shepherd and dwelling place, and His complete sufficiency for human needs, it shows that anxiety, fear, and insecurity are unnecessary feelings for Christians.
