    Widely recognized as a classical piece of Christian literature, The Bruised Reed shows Christians why Isaiahs comparison of us to a bruised reed and a smoking flax are accurate. We are bruised. We are in a body that constantly wars with Gods Spirit. And our faith can hardly be compared to a fire, for often we barely give off enough heat to smoke. Yet Sibbes shows us this is no reason to be discouraged. While it is easy for us to get discouraged about our lack of faith at times and our sinful tendencies Christ will not let us break nor let our small spark of faith be quenched. Giving practical advice on Christian living, Sibbes masterpiece is gentle yet firm; theologically deep but practical.: Though not for the novice reader, this book is well worth the effort for Christians to read. The wisdom in it will go a long way to help us during those times of discouragement and downheartedness. I would also add that the gentle and humble tone of the book should be an example for all Christians to imitate when communicating the truth of the gospel. All in all, this was a most uplifting read and did much to encourage me to persist in my feeble attempts to live my life for Christ.
