If you have little or no exposure to the rich legacy that has been passed down to us through the writings of 'The Puritans' these miniature books will give you some idea of what you've been missing.You're doing yourself a great disservice if you don't avail yourself of the books,booklets and tracts by Puritan authors,that are in print from various publishers(the Banner Of Truth is the publisher of this book).
Here are a couple of pregnant quotes to whet your appetite for this spiritual gem on Faith:p.21"Let a man diligently and throughly make use of his faith and it will become great,and great will be the joy that it will bring to him."-an outstanding observation.walking by faith will bring happiness and contentment to God's children and the exercise of that faith will strengthen it. Unbelief and walking by sight(as opposed to wholly submitting to God's Word)will bring sorrow and regret. p.49"If all the complaints,grievances,wants and miseries of life are rightly weighed,the cause of them is either lack of faith or failure to practice faith."
The abundance of rich insights that Samuel Ward gives us reveal the heart of one who did not just know in theory what it is to live by faith in the Son of God but this was hammered out in his experience as well.
In Proverbs we are taught that 'he that walks with wise men shall be wise'. I challenge anybody to read some Puritan books and see if their understanding(with the Lord's blessing)of the Word of the living God does not increase.You will be eternally thankful that you did.
