Rutherford’s Letters are well known. John Macleod described Rutherford’s Letters as “The most remarkable series of devotional letters that the literature of the Reformed Church can show”. CH Spurgeon said of them, “What a wealth of spiritual ravishment we have here! Rutherford is beyond all praise of men. Like a strong-winged eagle he soars into the highest heaven and with unblenched eye he looks into the mystery of love divine…let the world know that Spurgeon held Rutherfurd’s Letters to be the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of men… none penetrated further into the innermost heart of holy fellowship with Jesus.” Richard Baxter commented, “Hold off the Bible, such a book a Mr. Rutherford’s Letters, the world never saw the like.”
