The Brook Besor
Christians are often troubled when they are prevented from fulfilling their duties by illness, old age, family life or some unexpected event.
Drawing from the account of the two hundred men who were forced to stay with the bags by the Brook Besor, rather than join king David in war (1 Samuel 30), Andrew Bonar seeks to comfort those who have to stay at home. He shows ways in which we can continue to serve while laid aside. He helpfully produces reasons for us to sing praises to our God in all states and conditions, and graciously expounds the 'fear nots' of the Bible for our consolation.
