In No Condemnation in Christ Jesus, Octavius Winslow offers a through exposition in which he puts on display the treasures of grace to be found in the letter which Martin Luther once called 'the clearest Gospel of them all' — Paul's letter to the Romans. A full verse-by-verse exposition of Romans 8, beginning with the promise of 'no condemnation' in verse 1 and moving to the assurance in the final verse that there will be 'no separation' from the love of God in Christ for those who belong to Him.
About the Author
Octavius Winslow, 1808-1878, descended from Edward Winslow, a Pilgrim leader who braved the Atlantic to come to the New World on the Mayflower in 1620. The father of Octavius, Thomas Winslow, an army captain stationed in London, died when he was seven years old. Shortly after that, his God-fearing mother took her family of ten children to New York. All of the children became Christians, and three sons became evangelical ministers. Octavius later wrote a book about his family’s experiences from his mother’s perspective, titled Life in Jesus.
Winslow was ordained as a pastor in 1833 in New York. He later moved to England where he became one of the most valued nonconformist ministers of the nineteenth century, largely due to the earnestness of his preaching and the excellence of his prolific writings. Winslow wrote more than forty books, in which he promoted an experimental knowledge of the precious truths of God. He held pastorates in Leamington Spa, Bath, and Brighton. He was also a popular speaker for special occasions, such as the opening of C. H. Spurgeon's Metropolitan Tabernacle in 1861. After a short illness, he died on March 5, 1878, and was buried in Abbey Cemetery, Bath.
