Publisher's Summary

Samuel Rutherford, born in the early 1600s, faced many hardships throughout his personal and spiritual life. Despite the criticism of his faith, imprisonment for advocacy of the church, and his exile from his beloved hometown, Rutherford was still able to inspire the people of Scotland with his preaching. Rutherford is still an inspiration in the world of Christianity today through the letters he wrote, some of which can be found in The Loveliness of Christ.

Excerpts from one of the best of all books!

This is so good! I always wanted to hear the letters read with the appropriate accent and pronunciation. The brief definitions of obscure words are also helpful.

This is a treasure to me, but it is short. I wish the whole of "The Letters" was available on Audible. (and I wait for "Fair Sunshine," by Jock Purves, who first introduced me to the Covenanters.)

Samuel Rutherford clears our clouded view and helps us see our Redeemer and our life with eternity's eyes. He is a pastor to us today, across oceans and centuries.

Note: There are comforting words here written to mothers he knew who had lost children.

Jesus will save the sinner

So eloquent a man can place such a poetic love for the Lord and Savior of this world.

Comforting!

I love to listen to this when I'm feeling sad or spiritually low. It always comforts me and gives me strength to go on in my pilgrimage through this life.
