Praise for the Print Edition
This volume exemplifies the author’s usual method of presenting the subjects which he treats, not by an analysis of principles, original and far reaching views, or a demonstrative course or reasoning; but with a reference to readers who need rather to be reminded of truths of which they already have a measure of knowledge taught them for the first time, by plain, pointed, antithetic, and stirring statements and remarks; a recital of the principal passage of the sacred word which relate to the theme, and an exhibition of them in all the various attitudes and relations in which they can be contemplated with such counsels, warnings, and exhortations as are adapted to give them a proper impression on the heart.

About Horatius Bonar
Horatius Bonar was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, in a family with a long history of ministry in the Church of Scotland. After graduating from the University of Edinburgh in 1838 (where he studied under Dr. Thomas Chalmers), Bonar was ordained and became pastor of the North Parish, Kelso, where he remained for 28 years. He joined the Free Church of Scotland after “the Great Disruption” of 1843, and in 1853 he earned a doctor of divinity degree from the University of Aberdeen. In 1867, he took over ministry duties at Chalmers Memorial Church in Edinburgh, and in 1883 he was elected Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. A prolific author, he wrote and edited numerous books, biographies, articles, poems, tracts, and over 600 hymns. Horatius Bonar died on May 31, 1889.
