"The Christian in Complete Armour" by William Gurnall (1616-1679) has been a source of encouragement and inspiration to Christians for over 340 years; but to the modern reader its length, language and structure can often hinder the enjoyment of its true value. In 1914, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943) set out to make the heart of this book (and of Gurnall himself) more accessible to the reader of his day. He organised a selection of extracts under topical headings covering such themes as sin and guilt, glad tidings and joy, faith and holiness, strife and contention, servants and service, reading and meditation, prayer and thanksgiving, and patience and hope. Retaining Gurnall's original text, he created a volume of devotional readings which have stood the test of time in sharing Gurnall's challenge to the Christian's conscience. The publisher is pleased to make this classic work available once again.
