Item description for Covenant Of Grace, The by Matthew Henry & Allan Harman...
Overview Matthew Henry's commentary on the Bible is legendary. Used by literally millions they have stood the test of time, and are a testament to his desire to make the whole Bible and its teaching reach the ordinary man. In recent years we have seen a number of his works brought back into print. Here, however, we have something quite unique. Fifty years ago Allan Harman was given a small, well-worn book of handwritten sermon notes. It was clear that what he had was Matthew Henry's own handwritten notes, from a series of sermons he preached to his Chester congregation during 1691 and 1692. Harman knew these sermons needed to reach a wider audience and started turning these long forgotten sermons into what you hold in your hand today a revealing, and deeply spiritual work that allows us to read Matthew Henry on that most fundamental of doctrines - God's promise of unmerited favour to mankind. Harman filled in the shorthand gaps, added footnotes to help with passages obscure to our contemporary ears and translated the Greek, Hebrew and Latin quotes. He also provides a biographical introduction to help us picture Henry and see the context in which these sermons were preached. Matthew Henry's delightfully clear style is evident throughout the text and provides succinct, memorable quotations, that will stay with you.
Publishers Description John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.
