Loving God and Neighbor

The love of God and neighbor is the heart of the Christian faith. Forgotten saint Samuel Pearce teaches us how to live a life faithful to the greatest commandment.

Pearce was a Baptist pastor known in eighteenth-century England for his moving preaching and strong, pious character. In his short life, he supported believers in his own parish as well as in the many cities where he preached and helped send missionaries. Yet his personal faith, founded on the "holy love" of God, formed his most compelling witness to the world. In Loving God and Neighbor with Samuel Pearce readers will learn from his example what it looks like to love God and neighbor—in good times as well as challenging and seemingly mundane ones.

Top Highlights

“if you are not lively Christians, you are not likely to be either comfortable or useful ministers” (Page 20)

“More than any other eighteenth-century author, Edwards showed Pearce, and fellow Baptists like Caleb Evans, how to combine a commitment to Calvinism with a passion for revival, fervent evangelism, and experiential religion centered on loving God for who he is.” (Page 19)

“In his opinion this ability enabled the student of the Bible to avoid the problem of always having to view it through the ‘medium of fallible and varying translations.” (Page 18)

“ the cultivation of one’s own walk with God, Evans stressed, is the student’s first and leading priority” (Page 20)

“one hour at least will be devoted every morning and evening to these exercises.” (Page 20)
