The Christian: His Position and His Work


Loizeaux Brothers

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Who are Christians, and what do they do? Mackintosh explores the nature of identity in Christ and the tasks which that identity entails. He aims not to detract from the prominence of grace and the promises of eternity, but attempts to ponder daily life from the perspective of eternity. Mackintosh explains that the central challenge lies in the tendency to judge our work by its quality, not the extent to which our work pleases God. The Christian: His Position and His Work addresses this challenge with a reminder that the task of the church is not theological hairsplitting , but accomplishing God’s work on earth.

Praise for the Print Edition

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

—Andrew Miller, a leader of the Plymouth Brethren movement
