The Work of Christ by P.T. Forysth


Peter Taylor Forsyth is being read and reread these days by old admirers and new discoverers.

A. M. Hunter says of this present volume that it 'ought to have been Forsyth's greatest book, for it deals with what was the master-light of all his spiritual seeing-that cross in which God honoured his own holiness at the cost of his own sacrifice and so set up his kingdom as the moral centre of history.' His famous contemporary James Denny wrote, 'I liked Forsyth more than ever, not because he was more lucid or consecutive, but because he really strikes sparks from his anvil.'

In the Foreword of The Work of Christ, J. S. Whale said in 1938, 'This prince of the church did grapple with those final facts of human nature against which sentimental optimism is always powerless. He knew that an undogmatic Christian is a contradiction in terms ... Just because he was an able defender of evangelical truth, he warned Protestantism against that dilution and reduction of the gospel which leaves it a trivial, flabby thing ... We who are ministers of the word of God in these difficult and dangerous days can hardly fail to hear in this book, written twenty-eight year ago, what the Spirit is saying to the Churches.'
