By John Gill
This volume of John Gill on the Spiritual Life presents a compilation of characteristics summed up as Christian courage. Such courage, borne out of practical theology, is observed through fortitude, zeal, fear of God, and spiritual wisdom. Taken together, Gill offers the Christian a pattern for life that is given to wisdom, self-examination, and prudence. The believer is here called not to be ignorantly impassioned but courageous, emboldened for the work of ministry, through discernment and reverence. These characteristics are not merely elements within a worldly courage, but biblically saturated Christian virtues grown and invigorated by Jesus Christ.
