9781601782908: Life in Jesus: A Memoir of Mary Winslow

Godly people speak long after their deaths, inspiring us and revealing to us lives that are worthy of imitation. Octavius Winslow thus took up the daunting task of writing a memoir of his God-fearing mother, Mary Winslow (1774-1854). He viewed her as a grace-filled example of true spirituality, the antithesis of 'religious formalism', which he called 'the bane of the Christian church'. One simple line captures his esteem for her: 'How powerful and deathless is the influence of a holy mother!'

Mary Winslow's letters are a treasure of experimental and practical divinity. Living, vital Christianity is here set before us in undeniable reality, flowing out of the resurrected Christ. We learn, in her words and by her example, how to 'deal unceasingly with God as God deals unweariedly with us'.

About the Author:

Octavius Winslow (1808-1878) was born in London, England, and raised in new York. He was ordained as a pastor in 1833 and held pastorates in new York, Leamington Spa, Bath, and Brighton. A prolific author, his devotional writings exhibit his Reformed, experiential convictions and distinctive, warm, ardent style.

Review:

Throughout her checkered life, Mary Winslow experienced much joy and sorrow...In Mary Winslow's Letters, her heart is revealed and profound spiritual lessons are communicated...Mary Winslow's letters are a veritable treasure of experimental and practical divinity. Living, vital Christianity is here set out before us in undeniable reality, flowing out of the resurrected Christ. In these pages, we learn, in her own words and by her example, how to 'deal unceasingly with God as God deals unweariedly with us." The last chapter alone, covering the final days of her earthly pilgrimage, is well worth the price of the entire book. --Joel Beeke (From the Foreword)
