Originally written as a long letter to a friend who had walked away from Christianity, Rev. Henry Scougal’s small book beautifully expounds the meaning, difficulties, and joys of the Christian life. He argues with sound logic for the superiority of the Christian life over the unbelieving life. This is accomplished by examining the perfect earthly life of Christ, the pleasure found in a relationship with the Lord, the wonderful character qualities present in the life of the Christian, and practical aspects of Christian growth. However, while this book is packed with thought-provoking content, its arguments are simple to understand. This book speaks powerfully to unbelievers while providing sweet reflection for Christian readers.

Sample Pages: Contents | Chapter 1

This timeless classic was originally written to encourage a friend and stimulate his spiritual life. It was so appreciated that it was later published as a book for a wider readership.

A hundred years later a copy was sent to George Whitefield by his friend, Charles Wesley - it was instrumental in Whitefield's conversion. This book provided much of the stimulation behind the Methodist Revival of Britain and the Great Awakening in America.

In it Scougal explains the four essential characteristics of divine life, their excellence, their advantages and the practical steps that you can take in realising them as your personal experience.

This book has an extensive introduction by J. I. Packer and contains, as an appendix, the 'Rules and instructions for a holy life' by Archbishop Robert Leighton of Glascow.

"Henry Scougal's exposition of 'true religion' (his phrase, echoed by Whitefield, meaning genuine Christianity) was from one standpoint the seed out of which the English side of the revival first sprouted; for the book was favorite reading in Oxford's Holy Club, where the Wesleys and Whitefield first came together." -J. I. Packer - Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

"There are some books whose vision is so deep and clear that the truth rings from the page like the toll of a large bell, perfectly obvious, but rare and precious. They unfold the heart of man and God with such forceful illumination that the truth is not just shown to my mind but created in my heart...so it went as I grazed in the green pasture of this remarkable book." -John Piper - Pastor for Preaching & Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis

HENRY SCOUGAL died in 1657 at the age of 27 but by then he was already Professor of Divinity at Aberdeen University.
