Edward King: The Love & Wisdom of God


“By God’s great goodness we Christians can look up higher than our own nature, for we have seen His nature descend, not to destroy, but to take up humanity into the Godhead….

To our love now new spheres are open, and all men are found to be not too much for our capacity when incorporated in the Body of Christ.

“Φιλια will have κοινωνια, and we find the true end of love in communion with the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and with mankind in Him in whom God and man are one.”  

Edward King, D.D.

Being a Collection of Sermons


O God of peace, who gavest such grace to Thy servant Edward King that whomsoever he met he drew to Christ: by his intercession, fill us, we pray, with tender sympathy and joyful faith, that we too may win others to know the Love that passeth knowledge; through Him who is the Shepherd and Guardian of our souls, Jesus Christ Thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
