Henry Scougal was wise beyond his years. This book contains three letters he wrote to a friend so this book is divided up into three parts.
The topics range from the difference between a religious and carnal man to the topic of how to develop a vibrant love for God. There is a small meditation on the suffering of Christ and many stories from the New Testament to consider.
I liked the section on divine love and the comparison between divine love and human love. Henry Scougal explains how human love is a troublesome passion while loving God will make you the happiest because God is always present with the believer and will never leave them lonely.
Also, rarely have I seen anyone speak of repentance in such a beautiful way. Henry Scougal also explains how proud and arrogant people always seem ready to quarrel. He goes on to say that if you are humble other people's opinion of you can't hurt you.
So there is a lot to gain from reading these letters. I've rarely read any letters which were this spiritually beautiful.
~The Rebecca Review
A quote by George Whitfield in the preface: "How did my heart rise and shudder like a poor man that is afraid to look into his ledger lest he should find himself a bankrupt. 'Shall I burn this book? Shall I throw it down? or shall I search it?' I did search it; and, holding the book in my hand, thus addressed the God of heaven and earth: 'Lord, if I am not a Christian, for Jesus Christ's sake show me what Christianity is, that I may not be damned at last.' I read a little further, and discovered that they who know anything of religion know it is a vital union with the Son of God -- Christ formed in the heart. O what a ray of divine life did then break in upon my soul!"
Reading this book terrified me because I had to ask "Now that I know these things, what shall I do?". And that began the process where the Lord ripped me open down to the very essence of my nature and furiously broke into my existence.
Thank God for His Son and the relationship They have with each other. Feel free to write; I would love to discuss further.
