This book, considered a classic of Christian devotional literature, was written by young Scottish Puritan HENRY SCOUGAL (1650-1678), professor of divinity at Aberdeen University, in the form of a letter to a friend who has lost his faith. In clear, supportive, inspirational language, Scougal discusses:
. religion and the natural divine life
. how the Savior exemplifies divine love
. the difficulties and duties of Christian life
. and more.
Seekers after spiritual succor continue to find soulful sustenance and encouragement in this work more than two centuries after it was first published.
