Christians have much to learn from the life of Hezekiah, and Mackintosh has much to teach. Hezekiah exhibits the characteristics of service to God, unlike his predecessors, who doubted God’s work and resisted proper devotion. Sadly, the church often more closely resembles the latter.
What can we learn from Hezekiah? We must resist inactivity and ill-timed service. We must not merely exhibit outward expressions of the Gospel, but, like Hezekiah, cultivate the inward power of God. Reflections on the Life and Times of Hezekiah provides a thorough and accessible introduction to the life of Hezekiah, and offers advice about how to apply it to the present time.

Man’s complete ruin in sin, and God’s perfect remedy in Christ, are fully, clearly, and often strikingly presented [in Mackintosh’s writings].
