Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I was missionary in bush Alaska, I knew that if the Lord would have mercy upon His people, to bring revival in a cold and remote land, it would be by His grace alone according to His good pleasure. Man cannot manufacture revival; nor can he manipulate God in any way to bring revival to pass. Nevertheless, our Savior and Sovereign has ordained means by which He accomplishes His will, presenting His ways according to His Word. That being so, ministers of God were responsible, by God's grace, to employ those means to the fullest extent possible and permissible in order to exalt Christ and bestow upon God the greatest glory redeemed souls could offer.

Therefore, in Scammon Bay, I began piecing together what would soon become A Puritan Family Devotional. For those who were already in the congregation, kept by God's grace in His Word and on His way, it was necessary to encourage daily Bible readings in the home. Expositional and expository preaching and teaching is wonderful; but if it causes the congregation to be lulled into finding satisfaction in the study and meditation of God's Word only once or twice per week when it is preached from the pulpit, we have failed as pastors. The weekly exhortation from the pulpit alone will never afford the congregation the opportunities necessary to grow in grace and be strengthened in faith. Therefore, Daily Bread, the Bible reading plan of Robert Murray M'Cheyne, was made available to the congregation.

As God was saving souls by His grace, it was necessary for us to ensure that those Christ was saving knew what it was that we believed with regard to God's Word. Editing Charles Spurgeon's A Puritan Catechism in plain language for our beloved Yup'ik people was the next step.

Yet, as every believer matures at differing rates, and that, by God's grace, it was necessary to identify those whom God had raised, or those who He was raising, within that local congregation. These leaders should certainly have knowledge of orthodox Christianity that surpasses a mere familiarity of the Bible and essential salvation truth. Therefore, the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689 was edited in plain language for our congregation.

Circumstances, however, caused my family and me to have to leave our beloved Yup'ik people earlier than we had expected and we were not able to compile all that we were working on into a singular devotional volume... until now.

Now, not only do we have A Puritan Family Devotional containing the 1689 London Baptist Confession, but we also have A Pilgrim Family Devotional containing the 1742 Philadelphia Baptist Confession. The Philadelphia Confession is exactly like the 2nd London Confession except that the Philadelphia Confession has two additions, the "Singing of Psalms in Worship" and the "Laying on of Hands."

A Pilgrim Family Devotional is now available using scripture translations from five English versions: KJV, ESV, NASB, and NKJV. These elements, in the catechism, Bible reading plan, and confession of faith, combined with psalms and hymns makes this an excellent volume for use in spiritual growth.

The little paperback is not flashy. It contains nothing groundbreaking; nothing new under the sun. Nevertheless, it contains a great deal of devotional encouragement in a size that's easy to carry along with your personal Bible.

About the Author

Jon J. Cardwell is a wretched sinner saved by God's free and sovereign grace. He lives in Anniston, Alabama with his wife, Lisa, and his mother-in-law, Virginia. He is the pastor at Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Anniston after having ministered as a missionary and as a missionary-pastor in the Philippines, California, and remote bush Alaska.

He is the author of the bestseller, CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED and the CEO of Vayahiy Press. Jon has also held the office of vice-chairman of the national Sovereign Grace Baptist Fellowship (2009-11), and chairman (2011-2013).

His Christianity has been shaped tremendously and influenced deeply by such redeemed sinners as John Bunyan (1628-1688), Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892), John Newton (1725-1807), and Granville Gauldin (1929- ).

Jon spent several years in the Navy, most markedly as a U.S. Navy diver. He was medically discharged in 1993 after a decade and a half of service. He reached his highest paygrade, Chief Petty Officer (E-7), in 1989.

Some of Jon's other titles include: Lord, Teach Us to Pray; Fullness of the Time; A Pilgrim Family Devotional, A Puritan Bible Primer, Wilmer P. Cohen, Pearl Harbor and Custom Classic Cars.
