CHRISTOPHER LOVE 3 PACK
“Christopher Love was a brilliant young Welsh preacher and rising star in the world of Puritan ministry,” wrote the late J.I. Packer. Love was highly regarded by his peers. He was a staunch Presbyterian and a Covenanter. The American preacher, Jonathan Edwards, read Love and had his books in his personal library.
Here are Love’s 15 sermons on grace, taken from 1 Kings 14:13: “Because in him there is found some good thing toward the Lord God of Israel.” The Puritans saw a God who looked for “some good thing” in His people. The “hall of fame” in Hebrews 11 is full of people who, for all we know, only did one good thing, and yet they are held up as models of faith. That indeed is grace, and that indeed is amazing!
Christopher Love is one of my favorite Puritans. And this book on “Grace” is, in my opinion, one of the 3 best books I’ve ever published in over 30 years of reprinting the Puritans. If there’s a single theme to this book it is this: Christ is a better Savior than I am a sinner. —Dr. Don Kistler, Editor
The Natural Man's Condition
The height of hopelessness is to be without Christ. And the despair felt by such a person in this world pales in comparison to what they will feel in the next one. In this scarce Puritan volume, never reprinted since the 17th century, Christopher Love describes the misery of being without Christ and the benefits of being in Christ.
He distinguishes true hopes from false hopes, and gives evidences for knowing that one truly is in the covenant of grace. This is painstaking heart surgery from a wise soul-physician, who wounds only to apply the healing balm of the gospel.
The Combat Between the Flesh and the Spirit
“Christopher Love was a brilliant young Welsh preacher and a rising star in the world of Puritan ministry,” wrote Dr. J.I. Packer. Love was a prominent London minister, a staunch Presbyterian, a Covenanter, and a member of the Westminster Assembly. The American Puritan, Jonathan Edwards, had Love’s books in his personal library.
Here are Love’s 27 sermons on Galatians 5:17. This is arguably his best known work.
