Of Making Many Books There is No End Recommendation #12

Realizing that it’s been a while since I’ve recommended any books, I wanted to point out one of my all time favorites. I can’t believe that I missed this book when I started posting the series Of Making of Many Books There is No End Recommendation. I cannot recommend strongly enough William G. Blaikie and Robert Law’s Glimpses of the Inner Life of our Lord & The Emotions of Jesus. With the exception of perhaps B.B. Warfield’s The Emotional Life of our Lord, there is no better book that I know of on the subject than this one. Tentmaker Publications has reprinted the work by Blaikie and the work by Law together in one very nice edition. You can order a copy here. You can also download a PDF version of Blaikie’s work here. These works are of inestimable benefit for the Christian who wants to know his/her Savior more. I especially liked Blaikie’s chapters on, “His Entire Harmony with the Father,” “His Temptation by the Devil,” “His Enduring of the Cross,” and “His Dying Word.” My favorite chapters out of The Emotions of Jesus were: “The Compassion of Jesus (for the suffering),” “The Compassion of Jesus (for the sinful),” and “The Wonder of Jesus.” If you read this work I think you will agree that every chapter is like a wonderful work of art–showing us the beauty of Christ on every page.
