The Lord From Heaven by Sir Robert Anderson is a rousing yet sober and well-researched reflection upon the greatness of the Lord Jesus Christ and His importance in everyday, Christian life.
This excellent study of Christ offers readers an examination of not only the personality of His manifestation on Earth, but the theological significance which the Son of God holds. What impact Christ has on the Christian believer throughout life, and His importance to the believer who intends to journey to the afterlife, are revealed in a lucid yet poignant series of reflections.
The Gospels of John and Matthew are examined in sequence, their testimonies examined closely along with that of Paul and the foretelling words in the Book of Revelation. We thus gain a good knowledge of New Testament theology, both in the context of Christ as savior and in the prophetic elements significant in Christianity. Anderson concludes his examination with an inspiring chapter on the Lord's grace, and how such grace accompanies believers in the afterlife.
As a police commissioner, Sir Robert Anderson spent his career learning how to find, analyze, organize and properly present information. These professional talents are evident in his many books concerning topics of Christianity. Although not a theologian by profession, his works were noticed and praised by Christian scholarly authorities of their time.
