Item Description...
The Loveliness of Christ is a beautiful little gift book containing short extracts in which some of Rutherford's most helpful thoughts are allowed to stand out in their unadorned wisdom and power. Those familiar with Andrew Bonar's great nineteenth-century collection of the Letters of Samuel Rutherford will feel that this setting of brief quotations makes Rutherford's words sparkle like diamonds on a dark cloth in a jeweller's shop. It is not surprising then, that a hundred years ago, H. C. G. Moule, the Anglican Bishop of Durham, said in his simple but elegant commendation of the original edition of The Loveliness of Christ that it was 'a small casket stored with many jewels'. It is the publisher's wish that the reader, in meditating on these pages, will find here help, comfort, wise counsel, and spiritual compass, and to say with Rutherford, 'Every day we may see some new thing in Christ. His love hath neither brim nor bottom.'

Nothing Can Express To You The Loveliness Of My Only Lord Jesus  Jan 30, 2010
This book is so achingly wonderful and ever so lovely.

Buy twenty and give them out as gifts.

These are perhaps some of the most beautiful poetic statements about our beautiful Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

There are way too many to jot here but let me leave you with this:

"I find Christ to be Christ, and that he is far, far, even infinite heaven's height above man. And that is all our happiness. Sinners can do nothing but make wounds that Christ may heal them; and make debts, that he may pay them; and make falls, that he may raise them; and make deaths, that he may quicken them; and spin out and dig hells to themselves, that he may ransom them."
Amazing  May 25, 2009
This is an amazing little book. Not only have I seen more of Christ's beauty and love, but it has helped me fear less of disaster striking. Not that I am a fearful person or that this book is about disaster! But nevertheless, as I have read this book it has given me greater hope and less fear. There is also a wonderful letter Rutherford wrote to a woman whose son died that is very encouraging. I highly recommend this book.
Rutherford saw real love, not glib sentimentality!  Feb 6, 2009
I heartily recommend The Loveliness of Christ, by Samuel Rutherford. It is a collection of extracts, from one to five sentences in length, taken from his journals, letters, and writings, expressing deep love for Christ. A Puritan during times of opposition, Rutherford's experience was one of exile and persecution. Yet he praises Jesus for many things I had never thought to be thankful for; as a result the tiny book has been stirring my heart to love Christ.

The language is sometimes dated and grammatically clunky, but the spirit is warm and worthwhile. A glossary in the back helps with antiquated words.


It is the Lord's kindness that He will take the scum off us in the fire. Who knows how needful winnowing is to us, and what dross we must want removed ere we enter the kingdom of God? So narrow is the entry to heaven, that our knots, our bunches and lumps of pride, and self-love, and idol-love, and world-love must be hammered off us, that we may throng in, stooping low, and creeping through that narrow and thorny entry.

Wants are my best riches, for I find these supplied by Christ.

You will not get leave to steal quietly to heaven, in Christ's company, without a conflict and a cross.

Christ's cross is such a burden as sails are to a ship or wings are to a bird.

Our best food here is hunger.

I think I see more of Christ than ever I saw; and yet I see but little of what may be seen.

Lay all your loads and your weights by faith upon Christ. Ease yourself and let Him bear all. He can, He does, He will bear you.

I urge upon you... a near communion with Christ and a growing communion. There are curtains to be drawn back in Christ that we never saw, and new foldings in Him.I despair that ever I shall win to the far end of that love,there are so many plies in it; therefore dig deep, and sweat, and labor, and take pains for Him, and set by so much time in the day for Him as you can: He will be won with labor.

Michael Spotts:.
