About the Author
Samuel Rutherford (1600 1661) was a Scottish minister and covenanter best known for his political book, "Lex Rex; or, The Law and the Prince", for which he was charged with high treason and imprisoned. The book argued for limited government, as well as limitations on the current idea of the divine right of kings.

Top Customer Reviews
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 language is sometimes dated and grammatically clunky, but the spirit is warm and worthwhile. A glossary in the back helps with antiquated words.
It is the Lord's kindness that He will take the scum off us in the fire. Who knows how needful winnowing is to us, and what dross we must want removed ere we enter the kingdom of God? So narrow is the entry to heaven, that our knots, our bunches and lumps of pride, and self-love, and idol-love, and world-love must be hammered off us, that we may throng in, stooping low, and creeping through that narrow and thorny entry.
Wants are my best riches, for I find these supplied by Christ.
You will not get leave to steal quietly to heaven, in Christ's company, without a conflict and a cross.
Christ's cross is such a burden as sails are to a ship or wings are to a bird.
Our best food here is hunger.
I think I see more of Christ than ever I saw; and yet I see but little of what may be seen.
Lay all your loads and your weights by faith upon Christ. Ease yourself and let Him bear all. He can, He does, He will bear you.
I urge upon you... a near communion with Christ and a growing communion. There are curtains to be drawn back in Christ that we never saw, and new foldings in Him.I despair that ever I shall win to the far end of that love,there are so many plies in it; therefore dig deep, and sweat, and labor, and take pains for Him, and set by so much time in the day for Him as you can: He will be won with labor.
