Puritan Paperbacks - A Sure Guide to HeavenISBN: 9781800402690
This book, A Sure Guide to Heaven will provide the reader with a clear and simple statement of what the Christian gospel really is, providing answers to questions such as,
'What is the nature of conversion?',
'Why is conversion necessary?',
'What are the means of conversion?', and
'What are the motives to conversion?'
It is far from irrelevant to republish this classic book from a day when people were more deeply conscious of the world to come. When the spiritual history of the Western world in our own times is written, it may well be seen as the epoch of spiritual sloth and slumber.
May this book, which was also known as An Alarm to the Unconverted, prove to be A Sure Guide to Heaven to those who pick it up and read.
