PPB Smooth Stones taken from Ancient Brooks: Selections from the writings of Thomas Brooks by C.H. Spurgeon
1 in stock
"As a writer, Brooks scatters stars with both his hands: he hath dust of gold; in his storehouse are all manner of precious stones."? So wrote C.H. Spurgeon in his Preface to this book.
Spurgeon counted Thomas Brooks among his favourite Puritan authors, and it is not hard to see why. Brooks' popularity lies both in his subjects - practical truths, central to the Christian life - and in the manner of his presentation. He is ever direct, urgent, fervent, full of Scripture and able to choose words which make his sentences stick in one's mind.
This book is a collection of sentences, illustrations, and quaint sayings from this renowned Puritan. Gathered by Spurgeon out of the 6 volume set of Brooks's Works, it remains an excellent introduction to both the man and his writings.
