The Believer's Secret of Christian Love
- Pub. Date
- Jan 1990
Utilizing his extensive editing and compiling skills, L.G. Parkhurst, Jr. has combined Andrew Murray's small "Secret" book on brotherly love with excerpts from Jonathan Edwards' book Charity and Its Fruits. Murray's devotional style is evident and readers may be surprised to find devotional beauty and depth also from Edwards, known primarily as one of America's most important theologians and a fiery evangelist.
Both Murray and Edwards show how the Spirit must bear the fruits of love in the Christian's life and how this is possible. Edwards' writing was probably accomplished while he was enduring devastating hatred and persecution in the community where he had pastored a church for twenty-three years. Believers will be encouraged to live up to the example of Christ.
