This book contains two parts. The first deals with the substitutionary work of Jesus Christ. Bonar shows that, in Jesus Christ, God has provided the only way to deal with the problem of our sin. The second part is about the new birth, about life after conversion. Ryle addresses what it means to be born again, and what it looks like in the life of a Christian.
Horatius Bonar (1808–1889) was a minister in Scotland for over 50 years. He is best known today as the writer of many great hymns.
J. C. Ryle
J. C. Ryle (1816 - 1900) was the first Bishop of Liverpool. He was one of the most authoritative churchmen of his time and his writings have been in constant demand throughout the last hundred years. His popularity was due to his clear and simple style, his longevity due to his being a profound thinker and compassionate pastor.
Bonar and Ryle are both nineteenth–century gospel–infused preachers whose sermons and writings seem timeless. These abbreviated and updated samples should prove soul enriching to whoever reads them. Timeless truths told in effective and engaging ways.

The hymns of Horatius Bonar are unique. He could be called the greatest of Scottish hymnists for the amount of hymns written and their rich variety of mood, metre and poetic beauty. But he was also an evangelist and a masterful writer, simplifying the profound and fundamental gospel truths of the Westminster Confession. This book on the imputation of Christ’s righteousness is typical. It opens up the heart of the Christian message of grace. It is conjoined to three messages by a contemporary preacher of Bonar’s, the wonderfully lucid and challenging J. C. Ryle. What a rich and helpful combination.
