Book: The Sunshine of the Gospel (Richard Sibbes)

Do you long for a heart affecting Christianity? Come find it with Richard Sibbes, a friend of the church who longs to see her betrothed to Christ. This is experiential evangelical Christianity at it's best.

I've been immersed in the works of Richard Sibbes for a while and decided to self-publish a modernised version of seven of his sermons. I've edited and formatted it, so the book feels like Sibbes but isn't quite as 17th Century as the original source material. He's the warmest and most accessible of the puritans, writing in with simple illustrations and a sweetness of attitude and language. I imagine this being a great book to read slowly and devotionally to warm your heart with Christ. I've added a short introduction and some brief applied footnotes along the way .

  • If there are glitches in the typesetting etc, sorry! - it's the downside of not going via a publisher... Do let me know if you spot something and I'll fix it for future editions - doesn't help you but it'd bless someone else!
