A Classic Guide for Christians Who Want to Move from Empty Religion to Authentic Faith

Writing to a friend who was disillusioned by religion, minister and theologian Henry Scougal created what would become a classic text on Christian living. Compassionately explaining what true religion is and isn’t, Scougal shares biblical practices that lead to real spiritual transformation.

In The Life of God in the Soul of Man, Scougal cuts through false ideas about religion and demonstrates how to pursue true unity with God. He explains that religion shouldn’t be primarily focused on restraining or dictating outward behavior, but living a divine life characterized by faith, a love for God and others, purity, and humility. As it did for the recipient of Scougal’s original letter, this book challenges believers to turn from empty religion and allow the Holy Spirit to conform them into Christ’s glorious image.

  • Great Resource for Churches and Mentors: Scougal’s words uplift disheartened believers and guide them toward true transformation
  • Use as a Devotional for Personal Growth: Recommended for nominal Christians and sincere believers interested in developing authentic faith
  • Approachable Guide to Christian Living: Dives into important topics such as trusting in God’s providence, depending on the Holy Spirit, and fighting sin
  • Academic Study Resource: This edited and abridged edition of Scougal’s classic work is ideal for use in Bible colleges and seminaries
  • Convenient Repackage of Popular Sermons: Includes a short biography of Henry Scougal and a foreword by theologian Joel R. Beeke
