Not many Christians today are familiar with Nicholas Byfield (1579–1622). This is a tragedy. Byfield was a Calvinistic puritan divine with a sweet preaching and writing style akin to that of Thomas Watson with the practicality of Jeremiah Burroughs. He was an extremely popular puritan in his day who wrote many treatises and was widely respected as a theologian and preacher.
Christians are often not as educated on the promises of God as they should be. Byfield treats this important subject with precision and biblical prowess. His purpose for writing is to show, “abundant comfort for the Christian against any distress.” He demonstrates how the godly may support their hearts against all outward afflictions, how they may comfort themselves against reproaches, how Satan tempts Christians and how the godly may be comforted in those temptations. He also covers comforts against our daily infirmities, and one of the most important encouragements on comforting the godly against the fear of falling away.
Byfield is pastorally tender, clear, practical and eminently biblical in this work, and his section on “objections and solutions” is worth the cost of this volume alone.
