This Incomparable Book!

This Incomparable Book!
(Thomas Brooks, “Apples of Gold” 1660)

The whole of Scripture is but one entire love
letter
, dispatched from the Lord Christ, to
His beloved spouse!

Oh! the mysteries, the excellencies, the glories
which are in this incomparable book! There
are none so useful, none so needful, none so
delightful, none so necessary to make you
happy and to keep you happy–as this!

Ah! the Word of the Lord is . . .
  a light to guide you,
  a counselor to counsel you,
  a comforter to comfort you,
  a staff to support you,
  a sword to defend you,
  a physician to cure you!

More. . .
