OUTSIDE SOURCE Book Review: "Christ For Us," By Hugh Martin

BOOK REVIEWED: "Christ For Us: Sermons of Hugh Martin"
REVIEWER:
Nick Batzig, Pastoral Intern at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, PA (Just a note: I met Nick earlier this year during my visit to Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary - "Great seeing this, Nick; thank you, sir."
THE REVIEW (his words, not mine):
"Hugh Martin, Nineteenth Century Scottish theologian, authored many worthwhile books, among which are: Jonah: A Commentary, The Life of Simon Peter, The Abiding Presence, and Christ For Us. The strength of Christ For Us is its short series of sermons and devotional writings. There are two sermons I would particularly like to recommend. The first is titled "The Plague of the Heart" and is taken from 1 Kings 8: 38. It is an exposition of one particular verse in Solomon's prayer of dedication at the completion of the Temple. The verse comes in the context of Solomon praying for the people of God. He asks the LORD to remove the plagues that He has sent on Israel when they realize the plagues in their hearts and pray to the LORD confessing their sins. The other sermon is titled "Heart Plagues Cured" and is the Gospel centered solution to the plague in the heart. These two sermons form a masterful pair of expositions on the Law and the Gospel. They are true gems of experimental religion and Christological Old Testament preaching. I think you will find that they reflect something of the value of Rev. Martin's work. Banner of Truth Magazine has included a great article on the life and work of Hugh Martin online. This can be found here."
