The Letters of ...


Some of the best books I’ve read are the books containing the letters of some well respected Christian from the past. You can read what the author has written but I find it insightful to get into their mind & one way to accomplish that is to read their letters. One of the best is the Letters of A.W. Pink. Pink was a kind, devoted, intelligent and thoughtful man. Another favorite is the Letters of Samuel Rutherford. Rutherford lived and ministered during a difficult point in Christian history. These books contain their thoughts and feelings, triumphs and heartaches revealed as they write to friends, colleagues, admirers and inquirers. Devotion to Christ and a heavy desire to share what God has done in and for them pushed them in their daily lives. We can learn much from what they have left us in their writings but also in their personal letters.

Samuel Rutherford is my all time favorite! I've read his letters at least 4 or 5 times. They are amazing!
