The Loveliness of Christ
John Calvin knew that if the biblical truths rediscovered at the Reformation were to spread throughout the world, they would have to be presented in a form that ordinary people could understand. So, during the winter of 1536-37, the 29-year old Calvin wrote, in French, his Brief Outline of the Christian Faith. This is Calvin’s striking but concise attempt to define the Christian Faith for ordinary people! Here you have the very core of Protestant belief and feel the warmth of its ardent love for God and men. (From the preface by Stuart Olyott).
‘This book is a little gem!…It would be hard to find a clearer summary of the faith in so short a compass, and perhaps impossible to find one so warm…Well worth the read!’ —Evangelicals Now.

The Greatness of this Book
-This is a wonderful introduction to the immaculate devotional thoughts of Samuel Rutherford. Rutherford is an under-utilized mentor whose words draw us closer to Jesus with his infectious passion and love for him.
-The short pithy sentences are quite literally small gems of encouragement and comfort.
The Annoyance of this Book
-It's really small. I'll reiterate what other reviews have said on here by stating that the picture and "leather-bound" description are misleading as this is a pocket-size book that is most definitely not made from leather.
-It's overpriced. I love you, Banner of Truth, but this should be be $14. Take away the fake leather, and it could be $3 on content alone. For a normal sized book, it would probably be around 30 pages of actual content.
It's good as an introduction, and will hopefully encourage you to purchase the entire collection of all 365 of Rutherford's letters.
The first reason is that the size of this product was VERY misleading. This looks like something that would be the size of a normal thin line NASB or ESV bible, but it's actually the size of a pocket gideon bible. You can put it in your pocket, it's travel sized. This was disappointing for me because I was expecting something like a novel, but it's just small experts from Samuel Rutherford's writings formatted like the book of proverbs.
The second reason is the price. I actually bought "The Letters of Samuel Rutherford" at the same time that I bought this, and I got this for around $12 and the "puritan paperback" version of "The Letters..." for only $7. I assume that the extra $5 is for the leather cover and imprint on the front. But quite frankly, I would rather stick with "The Letters of Samuel Rutherford", seeing that there is more content there with better formatting, in a cheaper book that is also larger in size.
Despite these disappointments, I do not regret buying it. It is very convenient to have all these little snippets, even though I wish it was more of a novel. I'm not going to go out and tell people not to buy it, because its a good book, but if you asked me if you should get it I would recommend getting puritan paperback version of The Letters of Samuel Rutherford instead.

Samuel Rutherford knew this in a very real way and shows how this works out in the experiences of the true believer.
If you want to know what it is to know the reality of a living relationship with the true and living God then get hold of this little book and read, digest, and re-read and re-digest what this man of God has to say!
