“William Spurstowe is finally getting some of the recognition that his writings deserve. A pious Presbyterian willing to suffer for his convictions, Spurstowe exhibits in these pages a pleasing sense of humor mixed with a biblical and practical piety. The subject is treated with utmost seriousness, the author with a touch of self-deprecation. Graced with an informative introduction, this carefully edited reprint will bless Christians who wish to better understand the greatness, preciousness, usefulness, and Spirit-worked effects of God’s promises to believers.”
