Christian Life


John Fawcett (1739-1817) was a well-known minister and hymn-writer (No.393 in Gadsby's). In this treatise on I Pet. 2:7 he states: "Love to the divine Redeemer is the distinguishing characteristic of a real Christian...the parent and promoter of everything excellent and amiable in the Christian character...The eloquence of men, or even of angels, the gift of prophecy, the knowledge of all mysteries, the power to work miracles, the most extensive liberality to the poor, and even the suffering of martyrdom, are all insignificant and unprofitable without love." 264 pp.
