'Although regarded as one of the great Evangelical leaders of the 18th century, William Grimshaw's writings have been inaccessible to successive generations. Paul and Faith Cook are to be greatly commended for presenting today's readers with a sampling of what made Grimshaw the important leader he was. e brief biographical introduction, coupled with selections from Grimshaw's previously unpublished manuscripts, make a perfect introduction to him. Living the Christian life will not only teach you about this important minister historically, but will also benefit you spiritually as you imbibe his practical and experiential emphases.'--Joel R. Beeke
'is collection of recently discovered Grimshaw manuscripts makes an excellent introduction to one of the mightiest, if least known, evangelical preachers of the eighteenth century. William Grimshaw of Haworth was a moralist before he became a Christian; when he did, the change in his heart and life went deep. His preaching became earnest, and his piety became evident. is can be seen in these writings, which form a rich and much needed blend of scriptural doctrine and personal godliness. ey serve to introduce us to Grimshaw, but, more importantly, to Grimshaw's God, and show us what it means truly to love God with all our heart.'--Rev. Dr Iain D. Campbell
