The Bruised Reed
"What a support to our faith is this, that God the Father, the party offended by our sins, is so well pleased with the work of redemption!"
The Bruised Reed is a tender pastoral treatise. It was Sibbes' aim to expound on God's grace in the work of the cross. Though Sibbes was well up to the task to produce a text of a dogmatic nature, he rather chose to create an applied theological work on the topic of sanctification and assurance. Speaking of this book, Richard Baxter wrote, “it opened more the love of God to me, and gave me a livelier apprehension of the mystery of redemption, and how much I was beholden to Jesus Christ.”

It amazes me how much the Lord loves me, that he would sacrifice himself for me. Galatians 2:20. This book is a wonderful reminder of how our faithfulness and faith, brought about by our father in heaven, and kept by his strength, builds us up, as we wait for our eternal home in heaven.
