The seasoned Scottish pastor wrote this short devotional for those suffering from
guilt, anxiety, or the consequences of sin. He writes with neither chastisement nor
condemnation, but rather immediately directs his readers to Christ’s gift of salvation
through his death and resurrection. Bonar reminds all that the Gospel offers hope for the
sinner and comfort for the troubled, for God’s perfect, constant grace never fails those
who accept it. From Bonar’s time to the present, people have found peace with God
afresh through this book. Many people report having read it several times, and turning to
it again and again when troubles arise.
