It was once said that most of the beds in mental hospitals could be emptied if people could find forgiveness. Thankfully, Psalm 130:4 tells us, "There is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared." There is a pardon for the penitent, and therein is the good news of the gospel.

In this scarce Puritan work based on Psalm 32:5, Christopher Love, a 17th century London preacher, explains the duty of Christians to confess their sins and the faithfulness of God to forgive them. And, as the psalmist said, "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity" (Psalm 32:2).

About the Author:

Christopher Love (1618-1651) Christopher Love was born in Cardiff, Wales. He attended New Inn Hall, Oxford, and graduated in 1635.

A staunch Presbyterian, Love had difficulty gaining ordination in the Church of England. He was offered ordination in Scotland if he would pastor a church there, but he was desirous of ministering in England. He eventually received the ordination in England he so desired.

Before he assumed the pastorate of St. Lawrence Jewry in London, Love catechized and taught theology to the children of the sheriff of London, and it was while living in that home that he met his wife, Mary Stone. They had five children, two girls who died early in life, and three boys, the last one who was born a week after Love’s death.

Christopher Love was arrested by Cromwell’s forces for his alleged involvement in a plan to raise money for the restoration of the monarchy, a charge Love denied. He was tried and convicted on charges of treason. Though several other prominent London ministers were also arrested, including Thomas Watson, they were all released. Christopher Love was beheaded on Tower Hill, London, on August 22, 1651.
