This collection of quotes gives an idea of the power Samuel Rutherford’s words had. Although no more than a sentence or two, each of these quotes has a profundity which leaves the reader thinking long after they have closed the book. For those who have never read Rutherford’s works before, this is a delectable introduction. For those who are familiar with his writings, these quotes are a fresh reminder of the great truths he strived to preach and the great God he strived to proclaim.
Samuel Rutherford was a 17th Century Scottish Presbyterian preacher whose writings have had a profound impact on Christians throughout the generations. He was one of the Scottish Commissioners to the Westminster Assembly, and his best–known work, Lex, Rex, had far reaching influence.
Small diamonds may sparkle brightly, and these short quotes from Samuel Rutherford shine with the beauty of Christ. We appreciate the sweet light of such gems all the more when we understand that Rutherford found them in the dark mines of sorrow.

This book is a great reminder of the achievements of his life, the beauty of his writings, and above all, the glory of his Saviour. Reading the book won’t take you long, but meditating on the words will continue for a lifetime.
