Richard Hannula, 140 pages
Samuel Rutherford is among the most loved authors of the Puritan period: his letters, written largely to members of his congregation at Anwoth in Galloway, Scotland are still available, having never been out of print since 1664. C H Spurgeon said of those letters, Hold off the Bible, such a book the world never saw. But there was even more to this man who loved the Lord Jesus Christ so much: he was one of the Scottish delegates to the Westminster Assembly that produced the 1649 Confession of Faith, and was also a major theologian in his own right. Richard Hannula has produced a very readable and accessible biography of this man. If you need an introductory biography to Rutherford this is the one; if you are already a lover of this godly man, you will be delighted by this careful and lucid account.
