Item description for Night Of Weeping (Christian Heritage) by Horatius Bonar & Bonar Horatius...
Overview Does God actively or passively punish his people? The church is being invaded by the cults of materialism and self. Large numbers of Christians believe that God shows his approval by the amount of material blessing they receive whilst on this earth. The concept of a God who could apply poverty or pain in order to help them grow spiritually is totally alien, if not blasphemous. Yet God tells us in Hebrews 12:6 that 'whom the Lord loves, he chastens'. The path of the Christian is not an easy one, but it is one of great reward - just as Christ's path was. As Bonar says in the preface 'the way is rough, and desert blast is keen.' but, for those who accept God's chastisement, "He will satisfy their craving souls; He will turn their midnight into noon; He will give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that they may be called trees of righteousness."

Read it or weep! Jun 16, 2000
This book is very challenging! Without such writers it is easy to interpret the Bible in a very compromising manner. This book isn't hardline it is fact. If you choose to buy this book be prepared to be challenged and enter a time of change - it's worth it!
