2 Corinthians 3:17-18

A little book on two of my favourite verses in the Bible... something to read this weekend!


Glorious Freedom
Richard Sibbes
"Description: The original title of this study was "The Excellency of the Gospel Above the Law", being a comparison of the greater and full revelation of God in the New Covenant. Sibbes joyfully shows us how the Spirit of God produces likeness to Christ and consequent great liberty in those who are members of it. One of few Puritan treatises with much to say about the doctrine of adoption. A renowned Puritan shows the transforming liberty which comes from seeing Christ in the gospel. An exposition of 2 Corinthians 3:17-18. This is a book full of affection that will warm your heart and enrich your walk with Jesus Christ."

Also about to start Thomas Pynchon: The Crying of Lot 49. Happiness, good books to read.

  1. I've just finished reading the much touted "Bruised Reed." Needless to say, the book really lives up to its billing. (If you haven't read it, I'd recommend it)

    I'll be interested to read this book by Sibbes - I haven't come across it before.

  2. I actually wanted Bruised Reed but it was out of stock, and I liked the look of this one!

  3. Now if only I'd known that, I could've brought you across Bruised Reed for staff conf. My Dad always has every Puritan Paperback in stock and reduced. [Wistful sigh. 4h after leaving Belfast & I'm already missing the bookshop.]
