First published in 1866, Words Old And New is an anthology of quotations from some of the most significant figures in the Christian centuries. A labor of love on the part of it's compiler, Horatius Bonar, one of its special attractions is its chronological order. Readers are led from the passionate words of the early martyr Ignatius of Antioch ("Let all the malice of the devil come upon me; only may I enjoy Jesus Christ"), through reformers like John Bradford ("Faith must go before, and then feeling will follow"), to Bonar's friend Robert Murray M'Cheyne ("You will be incomplete Christians if you do not look for the coming again of the lord Jesus"). Words Old And New is a treasure trove for personal or family meditation and devotion, an attractive introduction to many of the men and women of faith in past centuries. it is also ideal for anyone charged with the responsibility of preparing sermon or homily, Sunday School lesson plan or personal study in Christian philosophy. --Midwest Book Review
About the Author
Dr. Horatius Bonar (1808-89) is perhaps best-known today for his hymns, such as 'I heard the voice of Jesus say', 'Thy way, not mine, O Lord', and the communion hymn 'Here, O my Lord, I see Thee face to face'. An older brother of Andrew A. Bonar, he was educated at Edinburgh High School and the University, where he was much influenced by Thomas Chalmers.
After mission work in Leith, he was ordained as parish minister in Kelso in 1837, where he remained (after the 1843 Disruption and the formation of the Free Church) until 1867, when he was called to Chalmers Memorial Free Church in Edinburgh. He received a DD from the University of Aberdeen in 1853, and was Moderator of the Free Church Assembly in 1883. Influenced by Edward Irving, Bonar's pre-millennial convictions regarding the Lord s return were a feature of much of his minsitry.
He wrote several biographies, including one of his contemporary John Milne of Perth, published by the Trust.
