Discourses on the Rich Man and Lazarus by Timothy Cruso (1656–1697)

Timothy Cruso (1656–1697), was an excellent and unimpeachable Presbyterian minister, with a strong communicative ability seasoned with a hearty pastoral tenderness.

In this work on Luke 16, Christ’s narrative concerning the Rich Man and Lazarus, Cruso is taken up with explaining and exhorting the reader of the nature of hell-torments and heaven’s felicity. Besides their usefulness in awakening those that remain lost, these doctrines are eminently profitable to the most sound and established believers. Such exhortations serve to foster a more abundant cause of thankfulness to God for the unspeakable gift of Jesus Christ, and of rejoicing and triumph in him as their Deliverer from such a horrid state.

Both heaven and hell are set before the reader, showing the portion of the happy beggar and the portion of the miserable rich man. He presses the reader to consider, which of the two will you choose to follow? By an unfeigned faith in Christ and by the genuine fruits of that faith in a holy life, everyone that has heard and learned of the Father comes to Christ and is governed by him (John 6:45). It was Cruso’s desire in having this work published that it might be presented to all, that everyone might uprightly say, “I am not only almost, but altogether, persuaded to be in reality, as well as in name, a Christian, and as such, henceforth, to live and die unto the Lord!”
