More About Hannah Whitall Smith & Susan O'Malley
HANNAH WHITALL SMITH (1832-1911) was born in Philadelphia to a Quaker family. Her life expressed the joy that is found in complete surrender to the Lord. The secret to a happy life, according to Whitall Smith, is to trust implicitly in the promises of the Bible. Her goal was not to impress the scholar, but to elevate the simple man or woman who longed for a more consecrated way of living. Deeply practical, her writings deal directly with the day-to-day struggles of ordinary people. She is author of The Christians Secret of a Happy Life and The God of All Comfort.
Hannah Whitall Smith was born in 1832 and died in 1911.

Reviews - What do customers think about The God of All Comfort?
A wonderful classic Apr 14, 2006
A wonderful classic first published in the late 19th century, God of All Comfort is as fresh and new as today's news - fresher, some of today's news is pretty rotten. Wife, mother, and noted Bible teacher and speaker Hannah Whitall Smith answers these very modern queries: has Jesus been overrated, or has He been under-trusted? When He says, "Whoever listens to me shall dwell safely," (Prov. 1:33) is it for real?
She answers these questions amply and satisfyingly, with a resounding yes. Why? Because it is so written and God does not lie. Scripture's statements are incontrovertible fact. We do not need to rely upon our own feelings. Basing all her teachings solidly in Scripture, Smith looks at these questions from many sides. Our Lord is our Shepherd and in Him is all comfort. Don't get trapped into thinking you have to deserve His care, rather, study the meanings of the names of God found in Scripture. Don't examine yourself to the point of leaving the Lord out of it. Because He holds you, you can be unshaken, encouraged, shouting with faith, giving the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and conformed to His image. Definitely, God of All Comfort does not attempt to domesticate God, rather it is the opposite - to help us see how we need to be tamed by God in order to receive His full benefits.
If you have never read any of Hannah Whitall Smith's books, or do not know much about her, perhaps you would enjoy reading first the biography which concludes God of All Comfort. The peace, joy, and comfort which form the theme of this book were hard come by for Hannah; but once she discovered these truths, her life changed and she went on to become a loving, forthright minister of God's word.
Let me share a blessing with you. This last batch of review books I received contained two classics: God of All Comfort, and God's Passion for His Glory, which contains an introduction from contemporary author John Piper and 18th century Bible teacher Jonathan Edwards' thesis, 'The end for which God created the Earth.' It is wonderful to make contact via their ageless books, with two of that great cloud of witnesses spoken of in Hebrews. The ideas they propound are as real and true today as they were when first written. God's Word does not change, nor do the needs of God's people or their work for Him. - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
