Why Read This Book

Description

Links

Content

Walter Wilson, in his short foreword, gives us the most compelling reasons for reading this book. His Foreword is the first link on this page.

We have reproduced here the fourth edition of the book, The Trinity (Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 1969), by Edward Henry Bickersteth. The book was originally published under the title, The Rock of Ages (London: The Religious Tract Society, 1860).

Every reader will find the warmth and excitement that Bickersteth has for his subject--the Deity of Jesus Christ--an encouragement to his own spiritual growth.

This book is the companion volume to The Holy Spirit.

Note: The text has not been modified, except that punctuation and KJV-era pronouns and verb forms have been modernized, long paragraphs have been divided, and chapter and verse numbering follows the modern style rather than Roman Numerals.
