The Covenant of Grace by John Colquhoun
Northampton Press - 2020. d.w. 544pp.
Colquhoun served as pastor of the church of Scotland congregation in Leith, Edinburgh, during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He was a gifted preacher, and his works display he was an able scholar. His sermons and writings are full of evangelical zeal, and this volume is no exception. The author was along the 'Marrow-Men' vein and was a proponent of their theology during a relatively low ebb in the Established church in Scotland.
"This republication of Colquhoun’s work should be welcomed as a wonderful instrument to recalibrate our theological and spiritual engines. It is well worthy of a place among the books that we “read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest” because it is so Scripture-concentrated, pastorally sensitive, and full of spiritual wisdom. Each of his publications marks him out as a man and minister of unusual gifts." — From the foreword by Sinclair Ferguson.
