Book Description

Horatius Bonar - (1808-1889), Scottish churchman and poet
Horatius Bonar had a passionate heart for revival and was a friend and supporter of several revivalists, He was brother to the more well-known Andrew Bonar, and with him defended D. L. Moody's evangelistic ministry in Scotland. He authored a couple of excellent revival works, one including over a hundred biographical sketches and the other an addendum to Rev. John Gillies' Historical Collections bringing it up to date.

He was a powerful soul-winner and is well qualified to pen this brief, but illuminating study of the character of true revivalists.

Horatius was in fact one of eleven children, and of these an older brother, John James, and a younger, Andrew, also became ministers and were all closely involved, together with Thomas Chalmers, William C. Burns and Robert Murray M'Cheyne, in the important spiritual movements which affected many places in Scotland in the 1830s and 1840s.

In the controversy known as the "Great Disruption," Horatius stood firmly with the evangelical ministers and elders who left the Church of Scotland's General Assembly in May 1843 and formed the new Free Church of Scotland. By this time he had started to write hymns, some of which appeared in a collection he published in 1845, but typically, his compositions were not named. His gifts for expressing theological truths in fluent verse form are evident in all his best-known hymns, but in addition he was also blessed with a deep understanding of doctrinal principles.

Examples of the hymns he composed on the fundamental doctrines include, "Glory be to God the Father".....on the Trinity. "0 Love of God, how strong and true".....on Redemption. "Light of the world," - "Rejoice and be glad" - "Done is the work" on the Person and Work of Christ. "Come Lord and tarry not," on His Second Coming, while the hymn "Blessed be God, our God!" conveys a sweeping survey of Justification and Sanctification.

In all this activity, his pastoral work and preaching were never neglected and after almost twenty years laboring in the Scottish Borders at Kelso, Bonar moved back to Edinburgh in 1866 to be minister at the Chalmers Memorial Chapel (now renamed St. Catherine's Argyle Church). He continued his ministry for a further twenty years helping to arrange D.L. Moody's meetings in Edinburgh in 1873 and being appointed moderator of the Free Church ten years later. His health declined by 1887, but he was approaching the age of eighty when he preached in his church for the last time, and he died on 31 May 1889.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urgently Relevant Today 24 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a profound book which is urgently relevant for the Church today in its weakness. The author expounds a convincing theology of the Holy Spirit but obviously knew his influence and power in personal experience. Every minister should read this and every Christian devour and digest its spiritual food

5.0 out of 5 stars The Third Person Of The Trinity Accurately Described 24 Jun. 2013
By J. Adrian - Published on
Verified Purchase
Does the Holy Spirit love us as much as the Father and the Son? "The grace or free love which a sinner needs...belongs equally to Father,Son and Spirit."-In 1John 4:8b the Scriptures say 'For God is love' and this equally true of each person in the Godhead for they are the same in essence.It would seem like the Holy Spirit has been short changed at times(many more books have been written and sermons preached about the Father and the Son).However,the Spirit's work in our salvation is as equally important as the work of the Father and the Son.To be fair we must acknowledge that all the books that have been written on Sanctification are dealing with the Spirit's work in our great salvation.

What are some of the ways that the love of the Spirit is displayed to fallen sinful men? "for to him it is given to carry out in human hearts the purposes of redeeming love,in striving,awakening,drawing,convincing,quickening,comforting..."-The Holy Spirit exerts great influence for good in the lives of believers but an influence doesn't love.The Holy Spirit is a person with a soul and it is that person that loved us while we were at enmity with the living God.The author insists that the Spirit of God is not a mechanical agent in the deliverance of sinners(from the wrath and judgement of God)but He is long-suffering,and strives with sinners even though the Holy Spirit of God is often vexed,resisted,grieved and quenched by stouthearted sinners.

How important is the Holy Spirit as far as the religion of the Bible? "That the Holy Spirit is the producer in the human heart of everything that God calls religion is beyond question".-All that is true and right in Biblical religion is a product of the Spirit's work in the hearts of helpless sinners.The Holy Spirit is also the author of God's infallible book(the Bible).He inspired the prophets and the apostles to give us the revelation of God's mind and will that is necessary for us to know and be reconciled to our maker(yet another evidence of His love for us).

All errant views of God(whether it be of Father,Son or Spirit)will have harmful effects on those who entertain them.The life of God in the soul is effected in a negative way,peace of conscience can and will be affected also.Horatius Bonar's 'Gospel Of The Holy Spirit's Love' will help one to have God honoring ,Biblically based views of the third person of the Godhead.
