About This Product

If you have ever been falsely accused, you will find great encouragement from the life of Henry Suso, who wrote, “Now have I seen Thee and found Thee, For Thou hast found Thy sheep.” He wrote this and other deeply devotional poems just before the Reformation dawned in Europe. However, he experienced severe false accusations and endured them for Christ’s sake until the record could be cleared.

God’s work to deliver three men (Dr. Tauler, Nicholas of Basle, and Henry Suso) from the darkness of the Middle Ages is brought out beautifully in Three Friends of God. This work is especially relevant as the modern Christian world rapidly returns to those pre-Reformation days. Frances Bevan makes it clear that these men didn’t step out into the full light of the gospel of God but does show how the Lord began to turn the light of His truth on in the darkness of Europe. I found this fascinating and conscience-arousing in the light of modern developments.

If you are familiar with the other writings of Frances Bevan, you will feel at home in Three Friends of God. Bevan shines the light of recovered truth into the sometimes-darkness of the Bible characters while showing clearly much of what God was doing in their souls and through them for others. We benefit from the many hours spent sifting the historical record and bringing some of the soul-gems out for our learning.

As with other of our books labeled “classic reprint,” you will find a certain number of little flecks on the pages as a result of imperfections in the type used to produce them. This edition cleans up the large majority of those found in our rare copy but not all of them. I found it very easy to read the original and think you will have no problem with the even better reprint, but you can judge for yourself by downloading the sample PDF file before buying.
