Praise for the Print Edition

It meets a want often felt in this country as well as that, of some brief and popular presentation of the truth, accompanied with a confutation of the opposing errors. It is characterized by that earnestness, sincerity, and piety, which distinguish the writings of the excellent author.

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.
