Any time you get a chance to read Stephen Charnock, I would suggest you do. The man was blessed by God in his knowledge and love of the Lord--and he was an excellent communicator. If somebody says they have trouble reading the Puritans, give them Charnock--if they still have trouble, they may not be trying.

(Of course we should still give them the benefit of the doubt. They may not be big on reading in the first place, or may need to work their way through stuff.)

No words of wisdom? Am I to understand that it would not be wise to read these books?

Nice list Jeremy. That should last you about a week?

I am devotionally reading afresh MORNING AND EVENING by Spurgeon (updated with ESV by Alistair Begg).

I am also reading A GODLY MAN'S PICTURE by Puritan Thomas Watson.

Thanks for your list Jeremy.

Hey Reformer,
How you doing?

Oh man I thought I was a book worm. Will there be a test? Phew! I might get the Vos book and the History of the Baptists but other than that let me exhort all of you with the words of the late German theologian Helmut Theilicke:

"Sell all that you have...and buy Spurgeon."
