“Based on the well-known text, 2 Chronicles 7:14, The Golden Sceptre discusses several major practical subjects related to Christian living in a biblical, doctrinal, practical, and experiential manner. These subjects include affliction, humiliation, seeking God’s face, turning from evil, forgiveness of sin, and sin itself. Like all of his other books, John Preston writes in a powerful and moving way, excelling in illustrations. Highly recommended!” - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
"As vigorous of the probe, accompanied with abundance of healing balsam, is the general character of works on divinity that bear the date of our young Protestantism, even where the controversy is not so much as touched upon. So it is in this instance. We are covetous of such books. They startle by boldness of expression, by the stern energy of reproof and expostulation. They terrify, by the unvarnished display of those 'terrors of the Lord' which modern refinement love to wrap in circumlocution: and they win, by their striking views of Christ, in all the tenderness, all the fulness of his glorious character. Dr. Preston may be safely placed on the same shelf with John Flavel, so far as this book enables us to judge." - Charlotte Elizabeth, from 'The Christian Lady's Magazine'
