The King in His Beauty #2

The King in his Beauty now has the release date of 13 April 2011. This is a "wordle" of the total content of the book. Wordles are “word clouds” generated from blocks of text. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. What it shows is something that would have been very important to Rutherford, that Christ is most frequently mentioned in the book much more than Rutherford himself.

"I wish it were in my cry down all love but the love of Christ, and to cry down all gods but Christ, all saviours but Christ, all well-beloveds but Christ, and all soul-suitors and love-beggars but Christ."

"Oh, but Christ is heaven's wonder, and earth's wonder. What marvel that His bride saith, "He is altogether lovely," Oh, pity for evermore, that there should be such a one as Christ Jesus, so boundless, so bottomless, and so incomparable."
