Three Centuries of Christian Love Letters
Diana Lynn Severance
Christian Focus Publications
Follow the love stories of those who served in public positions such as soldiers; martyrs; and pastors through the letters they wrote to their loved ones. However marriage is not purely about the husband and wife; there is another strand which is vital. Marriage is a gift from God and a most important factor in the strength of that marriage is the love we have for the Giver of that gift. There are: Thomas J. and Mary Anna Jackson; John and Margaret Winthrop; Henry Martyn and Lydia Grenfell; Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Maria von Wedemeyer; Christopher and Margaret Love; John and Mary Newton; Charles and Susannah Spurgeon
Read in this book love letters which encourage us to stick close to Christ and the importance of having him as the third strand in our relationships particularly in the face of life-threatening adversity!
