It seems that as I read each day there is nothing that I do not gain from each of these readings. I am being challenged in my Christian faith, in my duties as a husband and father, as well as my responses and reactions toward my fellow man.
Having read Voices From the Past: Volume 1, I was anxious to go through Volume 2 and would recommend that both be used in a devotional setting. Perhaps reading one in the morning and the other in the evening.
For those who are looking for a devotional that is easy to read and more inspirationalI would look elsewhere. For those who are looking for something that will challenge to the core of their Christian faith and be shaken in their understanding and devotion to Christ then I recommend that you get these devotionals.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
In 2009, editor Richard Rushing put the Christian world in his debt by publishing VOICES FROM THE PAST, Vol. 1. In it 365 Puritan devotionals were captured for the Christian public who reads. Vol. 2 continues this publishing of generous daily portions of Puritan reflections on the Word of God, the doctrines of God, and the Christian life. Here we find judicious quotes by John Owen, John Bunyan, Richard Sibbes, Stephen Charnoch, Thomas Brooks, Thomas Watson and William Gurnall.
Like the first volumes, Rushing chooses the best of the Puritans, whether they were well known or hardly known. In his Forward he notes that sitting back and reading the quotations, he notes the times when he was going through hard times and various afflictions—as well as happier times. Like Spurgeon’s MORNING AND EVENING, the quotes that are chosen have meat on the bones but not so much that the reader loses sight of the main point.
This would be a good Family Worship tool if used with wisdom and illumination of the Holy Spirit. Not all 7 year olds can listen to Puritan prose night after night. But serious Christians from high school on up should profit greatly from them. The two volume set would make a good shower gift, marriage gift or college graduation gift or Pastor Appreciation Day gift.
