Request the Short Classics Bundle: A Must-Read for Every Believer!

  • by

This collection of three classic works by three influential theologians is highly recommended reading from Truth For Life. These pocket-sized softcover books feature the works of Scottish ministers Henry Scougal and Thomas Chalmers and twentieth-century writer J. I. Packer.

The Life of God in the Soul of Man

Henry Scougal was a pastor and professor of divinity at King’s College in Aberdeen, Scotland, in the 1600s. Before he died at the young age of twenty-eight, he wrote The Life of God in the Soul of Man, which was originally penned as a letter to a friend to differentiate between religious practices and genuine faith. This work later influenced men like Charles Wesley and George Whitefield.

The Expulsive Power of a New Affection

Thomas Chalmers was a minister and great orator in Scotland in the early 1800s. He was a professor at St. Andrews and helped to establish the Free Church of Scotland, which still proclaims the Gospel faithfully today. One of his most famous sermons, “The Expulsive Power of a New Affection,” explores the power of genuine affection for God. Transcribed and now included in this bundle, Chalmers’s compelling plea expresses an urgent desire for Christians to experience the transformative power of Christ.

What Did the Cross Achieve?

Famous for books like Knowing God, twentieth-century English writer J. I. Packer left a legacy for Christians through many of his writings. His essay titled “What Did the Cross Achieve?” addresses the atoning power of the cross and is considered one of the most significant short works on this topic in recent years.


If you love reading thought-provoking works from the Puritans or Charles Spurgeon, you won’t want to miss reading these short classics. You’ll benefit greatly from the deep insights each man shares and enjoy the accessible way these historic pieces are presented in a pocket-sized format.
