ROBERT PHILIP (1791-1858) was born in Huntly in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. He became a minister for Newbington Chapel in Liverpool in 1815, serving them for ten years. In 1826, he took up the pastorate at the Maberly Chapel in London, where he ministered faithfully until 1855. He wrote a number of experiential manuals and biographical tributes, which circulated in both Britain and the United States.
In this reprint, Communion with God: A Guide to the Devotional Spirit, Philip underscores the importance of appreciating and utilizing the believerâ€™s gracious access to God; he aims to cultivate a devotional spirit among the people of God so that their joy may be full. He brings tender encouragement to the faint of heart, yet assures the presumptuous that holiness is essential to true fellowship with God. Whether you are seeking to lay hold of Godâ€™s promises, struggling with assurance, enduring trials, lacking zeal, or simply desiring further encouragement in your prayer life, reading Philipâ€™s Communion with God prayerfully will be a blessing to your soul and a sure â€œguide to the devotional spirit.â€
