A new PDF book on the Trinity added: “The Rock of Ages” by Edward Bickersteth

I wanted to mention the book The Rock of Ages by the Rev. Edward Bickersteth, which can be accessed in PDF at the link – or if you prefer, one can also access it via this Google Books link.  The full title of the book is The Rock of Ages, or, Scripture Testimony to the One Eternal Godhead of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and Bickersteth proceeds to defend the doctrine of the Trinity as one might surmise from the title.  (This particular text was published in 1860 and I am amazed at the quality of the PDF – quite clear.)

Edward Bickersteth was a priest in the Church of England who served as rector of Watton-at-Stone Church in Hertfordshire and Christ Church, Hampstead.  He was a staunch evangelical who, as I have noted before, was actually commended by J.C. Ryle in some of his writings.  This book, along with his A Treatise on Baptism, is very much worth a look.
