One will not only see the connections between the Jewish sacrificial system and the Messiah, but will be led into worship and praise. I ordered this book for two reasons: This is one of the very best commentaries I have ever read on any book of the Bible. Since Bonar makes little to no use of either point throughout the book, one can overlook them and benefit immensely from the work as a whole.

A staunch Calvinist, he demonstrated passion for Christ, the gospel and souls, all fuelled by profound prayer. Today, Bonar is perhaps best known for three enduring classics of evangelical literature.
Most notable was Memoir and remains of the Rev. This lovely book has kept alive the remembrance of a short life, yet a ministry so fruitful for Christ. This too has become a classic of Scottish Calvinistic experiential literature, providing deep insight into the heart and faith of a gracious soul. Together with his commentary on Leviticus and his Christ and his church in the Book of Psalms , these volumes have remained heart-warming sources of spiritual challenge and blessing.
Andrew was their seventh son. Three Bonar sons went into the Church of Scotland ministry — becoming attached, after the Disruption, to the Free Church of Scotland. In their long ministries John James , Horatius and Andrew Alexander consistently maintained the Reformed faith. Andrew Bonar traced the first dealings of the Lord with him in It was not until October that he came to assurance of faith in Christ. In he entered the Divinity hall in Edinburgh and in was licensed to preach.
After assistantships in Jedburgh and Edinburgh, he received a call to the Collace congregation, in Perthshire. There he was ordained and inducted on 20 September His eighteen-year pastorate in Collace, first in a Church of Scotland and after in a Free Church congregation, was blessed and fruitful. He frequently saw men, women and children converted to Christ. The years were a period of spiritual awakening in Scotland, when the Lord raised up many men of outstanding preaching gifts and biblical orthodoxy.
In Andrew married Isabella Dickson in Edinburgh. Over the years they were blessed with six children. Sadly, shortly after the birth of their fourth daughter in , Isabella went to be with the Lord.
There is no doubt that his ministry there was remarkable. Awakening It was not long before there was powerful evidence in his congregation, as well as throughout much of Glasgow and Scotland, of a moving of the Holy Spirit in reviving power.
In his diary entry for Sabbath, 3 July , Bonar bemoaned the deadness he faced in Glasgow. O my Lord and Saviour, do like things among us in this city!
When he began his ministry at Finnieston attendances numbered around By the time he handed over the work in there were over members. Even the enlarged church opened in was usually filled to capacity. Many were brought to a saving knowledge of Christ through his preaching. Christ was always exalted and the eternal realities in focus. For Bonar, belief in divine election and particular redemption were no contradiction of a full and free offer of the gospel to all.
Faithfulness In his last 30 years the Free Church was beset by controversies and doctrinal declension. Andrew consistently took a conservative position, not least over the rise of the higher critical movement within the Free Church. Andrew was actively involved in seeking to deal decisively with Robertson Smith and his teaching. They left a terrible legacy of diminished credibility and doctrinal weakness. Dwight L. Moody and Ira D.
Sankey began their campaign-style missions in Scotland towards the end of Andrew Bonar was enthusiastic for their work. Not all the conservative men of the Free Church were, but Andrew and Horatius Bonar and many others endorsed it. Andrew Bonar spoke of that period in terms of revival and awakening.
No doubt there were many souls touched by the work of these evangelists. Rightly the Bonars were thrilled by the undeniable fact that many souls were saved. Lessons Andrew Bonar held faithful to the end, as his Diary makes clear. His last Sabbath on earth was 25 December , when he preached in Finnieston from Luke 2. So ended the course of a faithful servant of God and a precious gift to the church in Scotland.
The character of his life and ministry were established in private communion with his Saviour, and this left an indelible mark on his life and ministry.
