Some Favourite Books contains twenty-two miniature essays on some of the finest devotional and biographical literature of the Christian church.
Dr. John MacLeod invites us to join him as he selects great books from his bookcase and introduces us to a great life or to some rich spiritual theme. Here are splendid introductions to such classics as Guthrie's The Christian's Great Interest, Rutherford's Letters and Ryle's Christian Leaders (all recently republished by the Trust). Here too we meet famous Christian leaders - John Knox, Charles Simeon and the Haldane brothers - but also lesser known heroes of the faith like John Blackader and Campbell of Kiltearn. Fascinating in its own right, Some Favourite Books also serves as an ideal introduction to great Christian literature. It is ideal for occasional reading and also as a tool to encourage others to read.
