"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.

About the author

WILLIAM GURNALL (1616-1679) was a graduate of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, England, a university under strong Puritan influence. His life's work was as pastor of the Church of Christ, in Suffolk. He authored "The Christian in Complete Armour: Daily Readings in Spiritual Warfare.

Hamilton Smith (1862-1943), born in Barnes, Surrey, the son of a sea captain, was employed in the office of his uncle's building firm, where he was later joined by his cousin F B Hole. By 1901, married and living in Sutton, Surrey, with his wife and young family, he had retired from the building trade and entered full-time upon the task of building up the church of God. Later in life, he moved to Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, his wife Rachel's home county. His personal ministry was delivered in the United Kingdom, but his written ministry is still read worldwide. Along with H P Barker, A J Pollock, J T Mawson and F B Hole he frequently contributed articles to "Scripture Truth" magazine, many of which were later published in books by the Central Bible Truth Depot. His written expositions of Scripture are brief, clear and very much to the point. He is probably best known for his Old Testament character studies and New Testament outlines.
