About the Author

Thomas Brooks (1608—1680) was an English non-conformist Puritan preacher and author. Much of what is known about Thomas Brooks has been ascertained from his writings. Born, likely to well-to-do parents, in 1608, Brooks entered Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1625, where he was preceded by such men as Thomas Hooker, John Cotton, and Thomas Shepard. He was licensed as a preacher of the Gospel by 1640. Before that date, he appears to have spent a number of years at sea, probably as a chaplain with the fleet. After the conclusion of the First English Civil War, Thomas Brooks became minister at Thomas Apostle's, London, and was sufficiently renowned to be chosen as preacher before the House of Commons on December 26, 1648. His sermon was afterwards published under the title, 'God's Delight in the Progress of the Upright', the text being Psalm 44:18: 'Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from Thy way'. Three or four years afterwards, he transferred to St. Margaret's, Fish-street Hill, London. In 1662, he fell victim to the notorious Act of Uniformity, but he appears to have remained in his parish and to have preached as opportunity arose. Treatises continued to flow from his pen.

Next to most people's Bibles is a copy of John Bunyan's classic THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS. However, Brooks' amazingly convicting PRECIOUS REMEDIES should be on the other side. This is possibly the most valuable of all the puritan writings, and a must read for every Christian, especially those struggling and/or tampering with sin. Satan hates this work as it exposes his devices....and offers biblical methods to avoid and overcome them. Seek this one out at all costs. Banner of Truth ministries still carries this title.

Are you unsure about the whole topic of spritual warfare and want a book with a balanced Biblical perspective? Want to save your marriage? Do you want to be able to successfully battle pride, unbelief and lust? This book has it all. Check out page 198. The practice of remedy 1 saved my thoughtlife towards my husband. Page 36 remedy 4 brought me to tears and solidified my resolution to fight more fiercly against the sin that taints my heart, mind, body and spirit. It's the most relevant old book to our modern troubles I've ever read.

Format: Paperback
In considering this work I am reminded of the song, "Killing Me Softly with His Song" in which the singer states that the singer has sung about her justas if he'd read her letters. He KNEW her, yet had never met her. This book could bring this to your mind too. The reader will find statements of Satan's "devices" - the strategies he used, lies he tells, etc. and one can recognize how these things have been a part of one's life at different times. The rememdies are unabashedly from God's written Word and are effective "treatment" for the issue at hand. Similar to C.S. Lewis' "The Screwtape Letters" in exposing some schemes which tend to work against God's people, this is book can be used as a devotional, a discipleship reading, and a tool for counseling.

The message and content of this book are as useful today as they were many ages ago when it was written. The profound depths of insight this author delivers are worthy of their own web page!! Wish that all Christians had a copy of this classic--it is worth reading again and again. Thank God for the classic works like this that have the power to change lives and encourage the downhearted and despairing. Great book!

Format: Paperback
A key to success in any battle is to know your enemy and how they operate.The Puritans preached and wrote often in great detail on how to deal with sin and temptation.Their motive in doing so was a desire to be holy and useful in the service of their Master and King.It was so evident that their priority was to seek first the Kingdom of God.
Under the first heading 'Satan's devices to draw the soul to sin' Pastor Brooks gives significant help in exposing some of the tactics that 'the prince of this world' frequently uses:He presents the bait and hides the hook-when tempted we should soberly reflect upon the punishment that sin deserves(even those sins that Satan attempts to portray as virtuous need the blood of God's Son to atone for them).Sin is always costly.For believers it affects their communion with the Lord.For unbelievers it cries out for God's judgement upon it.When tempted to give in 'to a little sin' we should soberly consider that in so doing it leads the way to committing a greater sin.
There is such an abundance of wisdom in dealing with sin and temptation,that this book needs to be digested little by little(and portions that we find especially helpful to our state)should be read and meditated upon so that they become fixed in one's heart.
Many parts of this treatise need to be referred to again and again,that by God's grace,our hearts may be softened(I am certain this is necessary for my own heart).I want to cite a couple of examples that have stood out for me:in the section 'by painting sin with virtues colors'-the third remedy for this evil is 'to look on that sin with that eye(with)which within a few hours we shall see it'.

I am a lover of the Puritans! Having done my doctoral work on a Puritan, I am very familiar with their writings. This particular version of "Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices" by Thomas Brooks, is a great blessing. The difficult words, no longer or rarely used today, and some of the archaic sentence structure have been modernized without removing the beautiful prose and original flavor of author. This particular Kindle version is much more accessible to readers who find it difficult to read Elizabethan English. Thomas Brooks, along with Thomas Watson, are the two most readable puritans and this particular version makes Brooks even more accessible to readers today. The puritans were students of their own hearts and they wrote out of their own self examination. Brooks knows how to apply God's Word in a clear, direct, and encouraging way. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to grow in Christ likeness!
