This book of John Flavel's is Puritan writing at it's most practical. Getting right down to the core of Christian living Flavel deals with our hearts as a surgeon would do on the operating theatre...exposing, cutting, but ultimately healing. He defines the heart clearly, and then gives 6 reasons why Christians must make it the business of their lives to care for their hearts. This is then followed by 12 seasons in our lives where we will need to take particular care of our hearts. The book is rounded off beautifully by showing how crazy it would be to ignore our hearts and by giving us some motivations for taking care.
This life changing book is worth every penny and will have a long term, profound affect on your life. Worth reading prayerfully and repentantly.
