Christ is All: The Piety of Horatius Bonar

Ed. Michael A. G. Haykin and Darrin R. Brooker

Reformation Heritage Books, 2007, 226pp., paperback, $10 / £7.99

ISBN 978-1-60178-033-1

Following a fairly lengthy and enjoyably rich biographical introduction, the bulk of this book consists of sixty-five mainly very brief excerpts from the works of Horatius Bonar, concluding with some suggestions as to further, deeper reading. The selections are well chosen, being wide-ranging in their material, crisp and pithy in their substance, and effective in showcasing the breadth of Bonar’s thinking together with its central themes and constraining focus upon the Lord Christ. Fitting well with the series’ (Profiles in Reformed Spirituality) intent to expose the best and deepest spirituality of previous generations, this is a book to do the soul good, not least in introducing Bonar as a godly man and gifted writer of poetry and prose to today’s believers.
