A Practical Treatise on Faith and Love

Written in 1799, Christ Precious to Those Who Believe: The preciousness of Jesus Christ, to those who believe—practically considered and improved by John Fawcett is a "minor spiritual classic of the eighteenth century that deserves to be better known. In it, Fawcett explores the way that 'love is the parent and promoter of every thing excellent and amiable in the Christian character,' a love that is, first and foremost, a love for the Lord Jesus Christ" (Michael Haykin, introduction).
