Sobre l'autor

Henry Scougal (1650-1678) Henry Scougal was born in June 1650, the second son of Patrick Scougal and Margaret Wemys. His father was Bishop of Aberdeen for more than twenty years. From his infancy, his father devoted Henry to the service of God in the sanctuary, and diligently trained him in the mostra'n més right path. From his youth, Scougal spent his free hours in reading, meditation, and prayer. He especially enjoyed studying the historical passages of the Old Testament. In 1665 at the age of 19, Scougal entered King's College, Aberdeen, and after graduation was promoted to the office of Professor of Philosophy. Four years later (1672), Scougal was ordained and appointed minister of a church twenty miles from Aberdeen, where he served for one year before returning to take the office of Professor of Divinity at King's College. He taught there for five years before dying of tuberculosis on June 13, 1678, at the age of 28. mostra'n menys

Short, practical exposition on the Christian life. Well worth the read to any who desire a closer walk with God. A couple of times, I thought he confused salvation and sanctification, and once I thought maybe he veered into "God helps those who help themselves," but I'm not so sure it wasn't just the language of the day that confused me. Highly recommend this to anyone.
