Life of God in the Son of Man was written by seventeenth century, Scottish minister Henry Scougal. It is a long letter, written to a friend who had lost the faith. Life of God in the Son of Man is supportive, and its tone is one of friendship and love, betraying a true passion in Scougal's work. Being a letter, The Life of God in the Son of Man is somewhat short. It is divided into three parts. In the first part, Scougal provides an immensely instructive investigation of the true nature of religion. In the second part, he explains the benefits of true religion, focusing on the excellence of divine love. In the third part, Scougal recognizes the difficulties in following God. He thus encourages the dependence upon divine assistance, and the contemplation of scripture in developing a Godly life. Although the writing is somewhat dated, Life of God in the Son of Man is a tour de force of spiritual wisdom, which has served countless spiritual wayfarers. -Tim Perrine, CCEL Staff Writer
