This is a fascinating book! Looking at the Bible through the focus of Jesus's heart. The depth of His love is still unfathomable from the viewpoint of fallen people. However, it is good to realize that even with all our wounds, defects, mistakes, and obstinances, Jesus still enfolds us with His arms of grace and mercy and stands beside us as we try to navigate this fallen world. A must-read! ( )

First of all, I am in the minority of reviewers as most really enjoy this book. Second, let me be clear that I don't find the author to have been unbiblical (for the most part) and the overall covering of the topic is fairly accurate of sound doctrine.

With that being said, I did not enjoy this book at all. The overall somber tone of the book and very flowery language made the topic drull and boring. The prose made my internal reading voice read it in a slow and whispery manner. A lot of the book has quotes by authors that it seems like it would be better if I were to read those books. The number of quotes and direct attribution from other authors like John Bunyan and especially Thomas Goodwin makes major parts of the book superfluous.

There is some good coverage of the topic and would be beneficial for new Christians. There is also a little bit of the balance of love and correction. However, there are times when Ortlund takes it too far. He talks about correction being something that pains God and that it's unnatural for Him to do. Again, I don't attribute this as "blasphemous" to the author but the flowery nature of the writing tends to dip into these types of incorrect views. There are many chapters that didn't have much of a point of being there and the coverage and length would put them as subheadings with the quickness they were covered.

I did not enjoy this book and if you did that is ok. I enjoy a good kick to the heart in my reading from time to time. However; the flowery prose, the abbreviated coverage of the topic, and the direct quotes enmass by other authors did not do justice to the topic.

I am so late to the "Gentle and Lowly" party, but Dane Ortlund's book is simply one of the best devotional books I have read in a very long time. A look into the grace of Christ and how that affects our view of Jesus by re-examining how Jesus looks at us. Ortlund quotes richly from the Puritans, but in the best representation of them and the theology that brought people to rest in Christ, rather than try to perform for Him. Simply wonderful.

Favorite quotes:

"To you I say, the evidence of Christ’s mercy toward you is not your life. The evidence of his mercy toward you is his—mistreated, misunderstood, betrayed, abandoned. Eternally. In your place. If God sent his own Son to walk through the valley of condemnation, rejection, and hell, you can trust him as you walk through your own valleys on your way to heaven."
"There are two ways to live the Christian life. You can live it either for the heart of Christ or from the heart of Christ. You can live for the smile of God or from it."
"If his grace in kindness is “immeasurable riches”—as opposed to measurable, middle-class grace—then our sins can never exhaust his heart. On the contrary, the more weakness and failure, the more his heart goes out to his own."
"Perhaps Satan’s greatest victory in your life today is not the sin in which you regularly indulge but the dark thoughts of God’s heart that cause you to go there in the first place" ( )

Loved reading this book, keep in mind that it is a book specifically looking into the "Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers" as the subtitle says so it is mostly about that and the gentleness and humility of Christ but Ortlund does mention the wrath of God in his book and how that is not at odds with His mercy, but rather His wrath and mercy rise and fall together. It is a beautifully written book, it made me fall more in love with God and turned me to Him in thankfulness and worship for what He did for me. ( )

Fatherlike he tends and spares us
Well our feeble frame he knows
In his hand he gently bears us
Rescues us from all our foes
