Product Description

For many modern-day Christians, death has become what J.I. Packer terms "the great unmentionable." This attitude denies not only the reality of the human condition, but also the reality of God's promises for believers beyond this life. The church needs to think more about death in the light of the gospel.
This compilation, edited by Nancy Guthrie, includes the writings of twenty-two classic and contemporary theologians and Bible teachers on how to prepare to die in faith. The short meditations are drawn from sermons, books, and other writings of classic theologians such as Jonathan Edwards and John Calvin, and of leading contemporary communicators such as John Piper, Tim Keller, J.I. Packer, and others. The writers provide a solidly scriptural and countercultural way to view the inevitability of death, explaining how and why believers can face physical death with hope, joy, and confidence in God's promises for the life to come.

JOHN CALVIN (1509–1564) was perhaps the preeminent theologian of the Reformation. Known best for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, he also wrote landmark expositions on most of the books in the Bible. 

 

MARTIN LUTHER (1483–1546) was professor of Bible at Wittenberg University, and this exposition of Galatians came out of his classroom. Undoubtedly the most powerful discussion of justification by faith prepared by any of the Reformers, this commentary on Galatians has had a profound impact on many through the centuries, including both John and Charles Wesley. 

JONATHAN EDWARDS (1703–1758) was a pastor, theologian, and missionary. He is generally considered the greatest American theologian. A prolific writer, Edwards is known for his many sermons, including "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God", and his classic Treatise Concerning Religious Affections. Edwards was appointed president of the College of New Jersey (later renamed Princeton University) shortly before his death. 

Known as the "theologian's theologian," JOHN OWEN (1616–1683) was vice chancellor of Oxford University and served as advisor and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. Among the most learned and active of the Puritans in seventeenth-century Europe, he was an erudite and accomplished theologian both in doctrine and practical theology.

B. B Warfield was professor of theology at Princeton Seminary from 1887 to 1921.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for 30 years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day. His many books have brought profound spiritual encouragement to millions around the world.

CHARLES H. SPURGEON (1834–1892) was an English Baptist pastor at New Park Street Chapel, London (which later became the Metropolitan Tabernacle), for thirty-eight years. As the nineteenth century's most prolific preacher and writer, his ministry legacy continues today. 

RICHARD BAXTER (1615-1691) was a leading English Puritan churchman, theologian, and writer. He authored nearly 170 works, including the 1,143-page Christian DirectoryMethodus Theologiae Christianae, and Catholic Theology.

    O Love that will not let me go: Facing death with courageous confidence in God is edited by Nancy Guthrie. Nancy Guthrie is a conference speaker, bible teacher and author of many books. This book is a collection of articles, essays and sermons by a collection of writers such as Drs. Packer, Horton, Piper, Lyod-Jones, Calvin, Warfield Sproul, Kuyper, Luther Keller, Owen, and Edwards, along with contributions by Joseph Bayly, Randy Alcorn, John Eaves, Jeremy Taylor, Thomas Boston, R.L. Dabney, Charles Spurgeon and Richard Sibbes.

    Death is not a topic that many people like talk about or even think about. Thinking about death is helpful for the believer. Thinking about death is helpful because it helps the believer live a Christ-centered life. It helps them live a Christ-centered life because it keeps them centered on the work of Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. Thinking about death is helpful because it helps the believer think through what kind of legacy he/she wants to leave behind when he/she dies.

    This collection of essays will help you to think through death biblically. It will help you to face the difficult reality of death through the lens of Christ's finished work. It will help you to live and die for the sake of the Gospel. Regardless of where the reader is at age wise or in one's walk with God this book will help you. I encourage you to pick it up and read and learn about how to live and die well to the glory of God.
