Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Flavel introduces his text with these words from the Song of Solomon: “Yes, He is altogether lovely.” Within these few pages, Flavel meditates on all the ways in which Christ reveals his beauty, majesty, righteousness, love, and total perfection. The style of his prose reflects the worshipful content of his meditations. Even today these words move readers to wonder and awe at God’s glory. In describing their reaction to reading the book, some have used such words as “soaring,” “marvelous,” and “precious.”
