9780851518701: Christian Love (Puritan Paperbacks)

In this Treatise of Christian Love, the Scottish Covenanting minister Hugh Binning movingly presents the need for Christians to show by their love for one another that they belong to Christ. Basing his remarks on John 13:35, By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another, he argues, 'This badge that Christ left to his disciples: if we cast this away on every disagreement, we disown our Master, and disclaim his token and badge.'

Binning describes the excellence of Christian love, demonstrating its nature from 1 Corinthians 13. He gives strong reasons why Christians should love one another, and shows that love is rooted in Christian humility and meekness, after the pattern of Christ himself.

Also included in this edition are three sermons from Binning's work The Sinner's Sanctuary, an exposition of Romans 8:1-15.

About the Author:

Hugh Binning (1627-53) was born in Dalvennan, Ayrshire, the son of a wealthy landowner. As a young boy he showed a strong aptitude for learning and religious exercises. He graduated from the College of Glasgow in 1646 and soon afterwards, despite his youth, was elected to the chair of Philosophy in the College. Ordained Minister of Govan, near Glasgow, in 1650, he is said to have impressed Oliver Cromwell by the force of his reasoning.

In the division of the Scottish Church into Resolutioners and Protesters he took the side of the Protesters, but maintained an irenic spirit and in this context wrote his Treatise of Christian Love. He died in 1653 aged only 26. Though his preaching differed from that of most of his contemporaries in having fewer divisions and sub-divisions, it was warm and practical and gained him great popularity. James Durham said, 'There is no speaking after Mr Binning.'

Review:

'Binning performs a heart surgery on one of the prevalent issues in the church today. His treatise on the real meaning of Christian love needs to be read by all. Supported with three messages on the need of the sinner to repent, this book is an excellent resource to share with those ensnared by theologies of the likes of Rob Bell or Joel Osteen. I highly recommend this short book to any and all interested in learning what real Christian love looks like.' --Terry Delaney
