Format: Paperback
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.

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

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

‘The Valley of Vision’ is a devotional book produced by the evangelical and reformed publisher ‘Banner of Truth’. In this book you will find a gold mine of prayerful writings by the likes of John Bunyan, Richard Baxter and Charles Spurgeon.

This is a great introduction to the puritans and the way they write. There is a deep honesty in the prayers of contrition that we would expect to hear from someone truly convicted of their sin. One entry titled ‘Purification’ contains the following words: ‘Lord Jesus, I sin – Grant that I may never cease grieving because of it….Deliver me Attachment from things unclean…that with self-loathing, deep contrition, earnest heart searching, I may come to thee, cast myself on thee, trust in thee, cry to thee and be delivered by thee.’

In this book are collections of prayers and thoughts titled: ‘God the all’, ‘Divine Mercies’, ‘Praise and Thanksgiving’ and ‘Fullness in Christ’. There is truly a ‘song for every season’.

‘The Valley of Vision’ has been one of the best purchases I have ever made and it has assisted my prayers and how I bring my sins and worries to the Lord. I pray that it will do the same for you.

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.

I had the paperback copy of this for many years until it fell apart. This new binding is attractive and robust. The contents are rich and encouraging. The prayers are uplifting and inspiring as they are full of sound doctrine couched in devotional language. I find that there is an engaging quality about this material that never fails to lift my heart in adoration of the Triune God.

Excellent book. the prayers selected are easy to read despite the old language, and set out on the page in very clear way visually which is a surprisingly important help. They mostly focus on God and not on ourselves, so they are solid and substantial, almost like a miniature teaching session because so full of reflections about God's character.

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.
