A.W. Tozer has said, “Nothing is new that matters and nothing that matters can be modernized.  The old way is the true way and there is no new way.”

And C.H. Spurgeon has said, “Clean the grand old pictures of the divine masters; hang them up in new frames; fix them on the walls of your people’s memories, and their well-instructed hearts shall bless you.”

I am thankful this year for the men and women of the Christian faith that have went before me.  And a book I just finished that reminded me of this great blessing is by Ian Murray called The Old Evangelicalism: Old Truths for a New AwakeningIt is probably one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.  It’s an instant classic in my view and I’m sure not that many know of Ian Murray.  This man has labored well in keeping those “old” pilgrims of the faith before us.  Below are the Table of Contents from the book.
