Book Wish List

Voices from the Past: Puritan Devotional Readings

I am adding this to my book wishlist. I love all of that old Puritan stuff. People just don't talk like that anymore.

The thing that I find the most interesting about their writings is the passion. One usually doesn't think about Puritans and have the word passion come up, but when you start reading their prayers (like in The Valley of Vision) you can hear it in every page. They had a real passion for the person of God.
