A Gift for Mourners by Richard Cecil and John Flavel
Richard Cecil proclaims: “Let us study the heavenly science of gaining by losses, and rising by depressions.” Death and mourning produce “a cry, which, while it rouses the sleeper, fills his eyes with tears and his heart with pangs; often produces such views of God, of the present, and of the eternal state,” like nothing else. John Flavel outlines many practical aspects of mourning in a healthy manner. John Newton’s letter urges readers to keep a balance between overvaluing and undervaluing social relationships. Jonathan Edwards’ letter emphasizes that the Lord Jesus Christ is our portion, rest, hope, and joy. This is a book of rich scriptural help and advice for mourning; much of which can be applied to any affliction.
