Puritan Devotional Readings
Ten Years in the Making, and finally here! A marvelous gift book. Glean from the wisdom and spiritual depth of the Puritans through these 365 daily readings. For anyone not acquainted with the Puritans, this book could open a door to the vast stores of treasure to be found in their writings and stimulate further exploration of the rich spiritual inheritance they left us.
Over the past 50 years there has been a great resurgence of interest in the writings of the Puritans. The reading of their works has brought great benefit to the people of God in many lands. Christians from many different backgrounds and cultures owe a great debt of gratitude to those faithful pastors and preachers who continue to speak through their writings even though they have long since entered into their heavenly reward. The Puritans really knew how to teach and apply God’s Word in the Spirit’s power.
Richard Rushing has compiled this book of daily devotional readings from his favorite Puritan authors because of the great help he has gained from their Works. Rushing says: “How thrilling it has been for me to read the Puritans on the glory and attributes of God, divine providence, fellowship with God, holiness of life and the mortification of indwelling sin, heavenly mindedness, prayer, evangelistic zeal, and trust in the Lord during times of affliction. At every turn these truths are eloquently taught, faithfully applied, and kindly offered as the subject of sweet spiritual meditation.”
