Description

Keeping the Heart

How to Maintain Your Love for God

This is John Flavel’s classic work on union and fellowship with God. In a comprehensive and helpful manner Flavel helps us understand better what keeping the heart means. He vividly explains why every Christian must seriously engage heart-work and not merely change external behaviors.  Flavel wisely equips disciples to see the particular times when we need to be especially careful.

He shows how we cultivate greater skill in keeping our hearts in tune with God. His advice is timeless, sensitive and profound. Flavel was an English Puritan who became a non-conformist after the ‘Great Ejection’ of 1662. It was 10 years before he was licensed to preach again, and then only in his own home. His writings, when collected in the 19th century, filled 6 volumes. Flavel’s writings are known for their practical nature. He was instrumental in promoting the ‘Happy Union’ of Presbyterians and Congregationalists.

Endorsement

“Flavel is clear-headed and eloquent in the plain Puritan style, orthodox, Christ-focused and life-centred in his subject-matter, with his mind always set on advancing true godliness, with peace and joy in the Lord.”  — J. I. Packer, author of Knowing God and Professor at Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada)
