Publisher's Summary

In Woollen and Linen, J. G. Bellett exhorts us to live our lives wholly for God. We are not to be found wearing garments of "woollen and linen" or "divers sorts", i.e., we are not to live with a mixture of Godly and wordly principles.

In this challenging audiobook, we are exhorted to purity of heart and spirit. For our encouragement J. G. Bellett draws examples from the lives of David and Abraham, who, despite failures, followed God according to his mind. Then by showing us the error of men such as Lot, Jonathan, Obadiah, and Jehoshaphat, he also warns us to beware of living lives inconsistent with the call of God. A word about the author: John Gifford Bellett (1795-1864) was born in Dublin, Ireland. He was educated first at the Grammar School in Exeter, England, then at Trinity College Dublin, where he excelled in classics. Here he met and became a lifelong friend of John Nelson Darby. He was saved when he was a student and spent his life in the service of his Lord.

Bellett wrote many articles and books on scriptural subjects, his most famous works being The Patriarchs, The Evangelists, The Minor Prophets, and The Moral Glory of the Lord Jesus. This book is part of the Brethren Writers Library series. These books go forth with the purpose of introducing the listener to the writings of men who were gifted of God as teachers "for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ". Many of their writings are freely available online at Words by the Wayside, 2015.
