Publisher's Summary

Richard Sibbes is widely considered to have been one of the fathers of Puritanism in the 17th century. His passionate sermons and devotional works have persisted throughout the centuries and continue to influence modern-day scholars and people all over the world.

Taking a phrase from Matthew 12:20, Sibbes explains what it means to be a "bruised reed". It is a metaphor that exemplifies the way in which God humbles sinners by allowing them to see sin in the way that he sees it - the lesson being that God sometimes wounds before healing but with the ultimate goal of deepening our love for Christ.

Sibbes believed very strongly that "God's love rests on Christ" and often spoke of the comfort to be gained by acknowledging this. He preached that the same can be had for those who live in Christ and seek redemption for their sins.

Fire and Brimstone rears it's ugly head

Rather dated, unsurprisingly since it was written in 1630.No more than mildly diverting. Too fundamentalist.

absolutely amazing book for the lowly

a must have for the Christian who's beaten up by life circumstances and all seems hopeless
