If you are a Christian, a true born again Christian, then God has set his love on you. As a result of being renewed by this principle of love, how much do you love God back? God loved you in Christ even though you were filthy, vile and disgusting in your depravity. God is always glorious, holy and most excellent. How much do we love him today more than yesterday? Du Moulin’s masterful work teaches us about God’s love to us, and our love in return to him. Its a Puritan gem!

Peter Du Moulin (or Pierre) (1601-1684), was a Pastor in the French Reformed Church, a studied divine, scholar and a zealous Minister of the Gospel.
In this exceptionally powerful work, Du Moulin covers the immense topic of the love of God. This is not an easy task. Because of the natural man’s depravity, it is very easy to biblically understand why “Esau I hateth,” but very difficult for the thoughtful Christian to understand “Jacob I have loved.” Once a sinner is brought into the fold of Christ’s love, there are certain marks that demonstrate they are true Christians, and are not only loved of God, but have a grace-given capacity to love God back.
Du Moulin covers what true love to God is, what hypocritical or false love to God is, five degrees of love to God, the marks and effects of the love of God, and five special means by which the Spirit of God will enflame us to love God more: such as the choice of our friends, the hatred of the world, our fervent prayer life, and the hearing and reading of the word of God.
This classic Reformed work is a study that will not leave the Christian unchanged. It is an insightful treatment of the manner of our love to Christ. His sections on modesty in women, as well as the nature of addictive sin, is worth the cost of the volume alone.
