Life of God in the Soul of Man



Author:Scougal, Henry (1650-1678)
Description:Life of God in the Soul of Man was written by seventeenth century, Scottish minister Henry Scougal. It is a long letter, written to a friend who had lost the faith. Consequently, Life of God in the Soul of Man is supportive, and its tone is one of friendship and love, betraying a true passion in Scougal's work. Being a letter, The Life of God in the Soul of Man is somewhat short. It is divided into three parts. In the first part, Scougal provides an immensely instructive investigation of the true nature of religion. He addresses several poor conceptions of God and religion before turning to true religion--the "life of God in the son of man." In the second part, he explains the benefits of true religion. He focuses on the "excellence of divine love." The love of God, he emphasizes, is a great love, worth having! Nevertheless, in the third part, Scougal recognizes the difficulties in following God. He thus encourages the dependence upon divine assistance, and the contemplation of scripture in developing a Godly life. Although the writing is somewhat dated, Life of God in the Soul of Man is a tour de force of spiritual wisdom, which has served countless spiritual wayfarers.
