Archive for the ‘Horatius Bonar’ Category

With so much going on in 2020 I thought it be good this afternoon I post a second post with something more devotional with focusing and loving Jesus.

Horatius Bonar. The Unwritten Wonders of the Grace of Christ.  Pensacola, FL: Chapel Library, January 7th 2016. 21 pp.

5 out of 5

Free: Chapel Library

Purchase: Amazon (99 cents for Kindle)

Are you in deep admiration of Jesus?  This booklet by Horatius Bonar is meant to warm our hearts to be at awe and worship of Jesus.  This pamphlet looks at John 21:25 which the beginning of the booklet quotes from the King James Version: “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.”  Bonar wants the readers to know that the works in Scripture we have are just “specimens” of what Christ has done; now Bonar avoid being speculative and saying things that are unbiblical since I know one can go off the deep end talking about things beyond Scripture; but Bonar’s point is that we should not miss the duty to marvel at Christ more knowing that there’s so much more He has done and accomplished during His earthly ministry.  To the end that the author wants one to love Jesus more and admire Him, I think this short work is worth its gold and packs its punch.

God’s Way of Peace by Horatius Bonar

Horatius Bonar. God’s Way of Peace.   Nisyros Publishers, September 20, 2014. 66 pp.

Horatius Bonar’s book is wonderful.  I was hooked even with the preface that talks about how some pursue religion and religious activities because they have to, but inside they have no peace.  Hence the title of this book, which Bonar explains from the Scripture God’s way of peace.

The first two chapters did an excellent job showing that our own efforts and works righteousness to self-justify ourselves with our own merits does not work in achieving peace from God.  It was very well argued.  I thought it was powerful to read Bonar’s point that if we trust in our works for justification, we actually don’t get any closer to assurance.  Rather instead of trusting in our works, Bonar in chapter three argues that we need to trust in God’s attributes, and Bonar states it so beautifully how God’s attributes are amazing and lovely.  For instance, God wishes and predestined sinners to come to salvation but yet does so in a way that beckons onwards towards him.

God's Way of Holiness Horatius Bonar

I don’t know how long it will be for free but Chapel Library has made available for free their edition of “God’s Way of Holiness”by Horatius Bonar.  I know there’s so many free electronic books out there these days but I thought I shared this since I’m downloading it myself and moving aside other books I have scheduled to read so as to make room to read this for the sake of my walk and devotional life.

Here’s a link to the Amazon page, be sure to click on Kindle.

Though this blog is mainly one that is about Presuppositional apologetics and theology, in continuing with Van Til’s point that there should be a close relationship between apologetics and evangelism, I think it is worth the time for Christian apologist to cultivate their Christian life towards being an evangelist and soul winner.  To that end, I review the following work:

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This classic is a good read for the soul. This work asks some probing and convicting questions for the preacher and the pastor whose responsibility is to see men know the Gospel and Jesus Christ. There are sins of commission (sins that involves our active participation) and sins of omissions (sins when we do not do what we are obligated to do). There were times when I read this book I had to pause, search my soul before God, repent, pray to God and also heavily burdened to pray for others. This work is good enough and short enough that every minister should read this work annually. This is the first time I read a work by this author and the impression I get from this work does incline me to consider reading other titles by the same author.

You can purchase this short work here.
