Henry Scougal died in 1657 at the age of 27 but by then he was already Professor of Divinity at Aberdeen University.
This timeless classic was originally written to encourage a friend and stimulate his spiritual life. It was so appreciated that it was later published as a book for a wider readership.
A hundred years later a copy was sent to George Whitefield by his friend, Charles Wesley - it was instrumental in Whitefield's conversion. This book provided much of the stimulation behind the Methodist Revival of Britain and the Great Awakening in America.
In it Scougal explains the four essential characteristics of divine life, their excellence, their advantages and the practical steps that you can take in realising them as your personal experience.
"Henry's Scougal's exposition of 'true religion', his phrase echoed by Whitefield, meaning genuine Christianity was from one standpoint the seed out of which the English side of the revival first sprouted; for the book was favourite reading in Oxford's Holy club, where the Wesleys and Whitefield first came together."
"There are some books whose vision is so deep and clear that truth rings from the page like a large bell, perfectly obvious but rare and precious. They unfold the heart of man and God with such forceful illumination that the truth is not shwon to my mind but created in my heart...so it went as i grazed in the green pasture of this remarkable book."
"I never knew what true religion was till God sent me this excellent treatise."
