About the Author:

Samuel Rutherford (1600 61) was born in the village of Nisbet, Roxburghshire, and educated at Jedburgh Grammar School and Edinburgh University (MA, 1621). From 1623 he acted as Regent of Humanity at the University, with responsibilities as a Latin tutor. There is a strong suggestion that 1624 was the date of his conversion, and he began reading theology at Edinburgh under Andrew Ramsay.
In 1627 he was settled as minister of Anwoth in Kirkcudbrightshire, and so began a ministry lasting only nine years, yet one 'whose fragrance and power has left the name of Anwoth forever stamped on the hearts of Christian people'. In July 1636 the High Commission brought his ministry in Anwoth to an end because of his nonconformity, barring him from preaching in Scotland and exiling him to Aberdeen for the duration of the King's pleasure. It was during his two years in Aberdeen that many of his much-loved Letters were written.

Review:

'When we are dead and gone let the world know that Spurgeon held Rutherford's letters to be the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of mere men.' --C.H. Spurgeon

'Surprising though it may seem in a world of large books, of all those owned by our family this may be the one we have most often lent or quoted to friends.' --Sinclair B. Ferguson

Apart form the Bible, 'such a book as Mr. Rutherford's Letters the world never saw the like.' --Richard Baxter
