Nathaniel Vincent (1639-1697) was a nonconformist puritan divine. His colleagues called him “smart…brisk and well-rounded as a minister of the Gospel, holding a facetious and jolly humor, as well as being a considerable scholar.”
In this important treatise on suffering for Christ, Vincent expounds on Revelation 2:10, “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer; behold the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried, and ye shall have tribulation ten days; be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” The world and devil are out to persecute the Christian and to stop the witness of the Gospel. In this text, Revelation tells us that Christians are even imprisoned for the sake of the Gospel. All of this persecution is for the suffering and trial of the saints which is ordained by God for specific purposes. This is the perfect volume for someone going into the missionary field to bring the Gospel to people that are outwardly hostile to Christ. It is also an excellent companion volume for the Christian who is outwardly persecuted for his faith in his home, his work or local community.
