The Remnant Past and Present


Loizeaux Brothers

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Throughout history, countless people-groups have been identified as remnants, but such labels don’t fully take into account the implications of being forcibly cut off and discarded. The Remnant Past and Present traces the history of Israel and the history of the Church to reveal a rich display of divine grace: God saves and preserves his people against insurmountable odds. From this perspective, Mackintosh reminds his readers to beware of ecclesiastical pretention. We cannot save ourselves and cannot restore the Church—this work is reserved for God.

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
