Synopses & Reviews
When you look at the multiple facets of what is commonly called Christian life or religious experience, only a handful of books equal Alexander's treatment of this topic. He explains the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart, mind, and life of man all through the salvation process, from early impressions to regeneration, to belief, repentance, sanctification, and glorification. In this profound and stirring book, Alexander's observations on the diversity of experiences in both the Christian's conversion and life are balanced, remarkable and rich. This book has been originally published in 1844. Current edition has been proofread, typeset for eBook readers, and slightly updated for modern readers.
