The Night of Weeping by Horatius Bonar (1808 - 1889).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-night-of-weeping-by-horatius-bonar/
It is no easy matter to write a book for the family of God. Yet it is for them that these thoughts on chastisement are written.
They may be found not unsuitable for the younger brethren of the man of sorrows. For the way is rough, and the desert-blast is keen. Who of them can say aught regarding their prospects here, save that tribulation awaiteth them in every place as they pass along. This they must know and prepare for, grasping more firmly at every step the gracious hand that is leading them on to the kingdom, and looking up for guidance to the loving eye that rests over them with fondest vigilance, ever bright and ever tender, whether in shadow or in sunshine, whetner amid the crowds of busy life, or in the solitude of the lonely way.
It is, then, to the members of this family that this little volume is offered. They may find in it something which may not merely interest them; but may also meet their case; something too in which, perhaps, they may recognise not the voice of a stranger, but of a brother; “a companion in tribulation and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ.” ( Preface)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/bub_gb_HpGboGlB8T0C/page/n3/mode/2up
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

With B.B. Warfield well on the way to the catalogue, I'm going to tackle something with shorter chapters.

Why would you want to DPL this?
  • It expresses a nuanced view of suffering.
  • It is addressed to the sufferer.
  • THere are many hymns but not many books of his in the catalogue.

All set! This looks like a good book. I'm tempted to DPL it myself, but I don't think I can really commit to it right now. Good luck, and let me know what else I can do for you!

Same here!
I've had a list of Bonar projects to do as group projects for awhile.
If this is still open after I finish Romans, I'll take a look.

(So much DPL work came in this week).

Thanks all!

I seem to be leaving an unintentional trail of battered and bruised PLers behind me. Not trying to overwork anyone!

:clap:

Sections won't come as fast this time because they aren't pre-recorded. The recording quality improves from section 2 onwards.
