Puritan reading challenge…

Well following Dave Bish’s advice I looked up this Puritan reading challenge, and it looked like a great idea so I have signed up, commiting to reading one book each month written by a puritan. As I am a month late in starting I have to catch up but I am sure that will not be a problem, and when it cost me only 4.86 for the first 3 books on the list how could I complain.

Here is the list for this year:
January: The Bruised Reed by Richard Sibbes (128 pp)
February: The Mystery of Providence by John Flavel (221 pp)
March: The Godly Man’s Picture by Thomas Watson (252 pp)
April: Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks (253 pp)
May: Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ by John Bunyan (225 pp)
June: The Mortification of Sin by John Owen (130 pp)
July: A Lifting Up for the Downcast by William Bridge (287 pp)
August: The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs (228 pp)
September: The True Bounds of Christian Freedom by Samuel Bolton (224 pp)
October: The Christian’s Great Interest by William Guthrie (207 pp)
November: The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter (256 pp)
December: A Sure Guide to Heaven by Joseph Alleine (148 pp)

If you are interested go here.

I am not promising anything but I hope to discuss what I learnt from each book and how it impacted me. Just waiting for the books to arrive!



  1. That sounds like such a good idea! Where do you get these books from??

  2. I got them from Amazon in the used and new sections.

  3. That should broaden your voice.
