Pundit's Folly: Chronicles of an Empty Life

Ferguson, Sinclair B.

Pricing details

$7.20
$8.00 MSRP

The world is a sea of glass: a pageant of fond delight, a theater of vanity, a labyrinth of error, a gulf of grief, a sty of filthiness, a vale of misery, a spectacle of woe, a river of tears, a stage of deceit, a cage full of devils, a den of scorpions, a wilderness of wolves, a cabin of bears, a whirlwind of passions, a fained comedy, a delectable frenzy; where is false delight, assured grief; certain sorrow, uncertain pleasure; lasting woe, fickle wealth; long heaviness, short joy.

Written specifically to help non-Christians, The Pundit's Folly is a tool for evangelism; but its biblical content and explanation of the Christian gospel will provide encouragement to those who are already Christians to witness to Christ and to live unreservedly for him.
