Presentation

Very often in the history of redemption and of the Church, the Lord allows difficult circumstances, even incomprehensible, for the good of His people.

What grieving believer has not blessed the name of the Lord for Job's painful and tragic experiences? What about the wanderings of the people of Israel in the desert, which warn the believer not to rebel against God? Or, even more mysterious, David's incident with Batsheba and Uriah, to equip God's people to fight against temptation?

We do not know the details that produced the great cry of distress in Psalm 22: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? But how many believers have withdrawn from this prophecy the assurance that Christ was indeed the Messiah of God who perfectly accomplished the salvation of His people on the cross.

Likewise with this book. The author, having already lost two young children, was deprived of his beloved daughter at the age of 21. The pain of this loss, united with the life of grace implanted by the Spirit, results in pages filled with sensitivity and compassion.

But these are not pages of pity. The believer never laments like other men, who have no hope. Instead, Pastor Cuyler will draw from the riches of the Word of God the treasures of strength he needs. Although trained in the best theological institutions of his day, he speaks more like a shepherd, whose care of the sheep burns in his heart.

A book filled with consolation and hope that directs the gaze to the Lamb whom God provided to bring his people into his glorious presence.

Author

Théodore Cuyler (1822-1909): Born in New York State, he studied at Princeton seminary. He served various churches in the region, where he experienced several revivals. He was invited to take over the leadership of the Presbyterian Church at Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, which under his service became the largest Presbyterian church in the United States at the time. A remarkable influence among his peers, he was also the friend of servants of God like Charles Spurgeon and H. Bonar.
