5.0 out of 5 stars Puritan prayers 16 Mar 2007
The late author was known to me as a lecturer at All Nations Christian College . His lectures were not memorable but his book is. This is a book I have read more than once. I recommend it as a devotional guide for Christian prayer. Puritans were usually against set forms of prayer. The prayers here are more according to Puritan theology than to their practice. A young Christian may have to study to understand them. The language is thee and thou but this is an excellent collection of reformed, Calvinistic spirituality. In language, Bennett is not Cranmer but he has given us a great aid to devotion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good thinking read 3 Jun 2008
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
Although the language is not contemporary it really causes you to evaluate the depth of meaning in each line. Dont be put off it is really worth grappling with and is a great enabler for both public and private meditation and worship

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely recommend 30 Nov 2009
Format:Leather Bound
As R. Edwards previously said, don't be put off by the Old English. Once you get over the initial shock you'll find the prayers rich and meaningful - seriously good meditation material. I find the book very helpful as I want to improve in my prayer life. Just the way these Puritans express themselves in prayer, showing depth of biblical understanding and applying God's truths to everyday life, it's really inspiring. If you want to be a 'prayer warrior' and shake the gates of heaven, as it were, this is NOT a manual. Nevertheless, there's much to learn from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Valley of Vision 30 Aug 2010
I'm very impressed with this book and am using some of the prayers from time to time in devotions with my family, selecting on themes which are in line with what we are looking at. In this respect the organisation is prayer subject matter most helpful. I heartily recommend this fine book as a spur, but not a replacement, to one's devotional prayer life, both solely and with family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure 25 May 2010
Format:Leather Bound
This little book is quality in it's presentation only bettered by the quality of the words within. It is more than deserving of its leather binding
I must be careful and not make this book sound like it is scripture, so impressed have I been with the depth of the content.
The meditations bring the Christian to many neglected corners of faith. The prayers explore the heights of God's grace and love, the width of His justice and the depths of the human heart.
I am in a dilema with this book. It is so good, I want to spend more time in it but it is rich food and is not intended to be devoured in large chunks. Each meditation contains enough thought to be revisited time and time again.
With clear type-face, this book is now an established friend.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 12 Mar 2014
By Dave
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It is a collection of prayers of people who are in the Puritan frame of mind.

Occasionally, it is difficult to know exactly what is meant but after a little thought they reveal their treasures. An excellent stimulus to prayer and meditation.

The quality of the book binding etc is that usually found in Bibles and the Book of Common Prayer.

Only one complaint: I wish that the authors of each prayer had been identified

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book 5 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well worth getting, it is a collection of heart felt prayers from several Centuries ago but just as relevant for today.

Great inspiration to kick start your praying. The language is quite archaic (though not too bad) so you have to get passed the 'thee's and 'thine's, but then there are lots of... Read more
