Puritan Sampler Dec 25, 2007
A Golden Treasure of Puritan devotion compiled Mariano DiGano is a sampler of writings of thirteen writers of a certain period known for Puritan nonconformity to the writings of the Anglican church. Robert Leighton remained in the Episcopal communion, so he cannot be considered a Puritan because he conformed to the teachings of the Anglican church. Leighton's work and the other twelve writings in this work trust the Bible as God's word. Devotion as defined as short readings learning about God and His ways, to investigate who God is, and one's relationship with God. Do not be confused these are not inspirational writings, vignettes' of short stories or pearls of wisdom that one may have come accustomed to in their daily devotional readings, but examples of doctrine edited to fit short reading time. The book is edited for ease of reading. I found John Owen's discourse on the Holy Spirit and James' Jeneway's work on getting acquainted with Jesus Man's best friend by far the best of the thirteen writings.
Two quotes from Janeway's work:
If we refuse to acquaintance with God, it is slighting of the greatest of all mercies that God bestows.
It concerns us to acquaint ourselves with God for without it we are in a necessity in sin and misery.
(both page 148)
The authors theme is how one grows closer to God, more obedient, a healthier perspective of sorrow, diminished sorrow, ability to spurn temptation, not to caught up in the world, enmity towards Satan, and have a low view of the world.

The book is a collection of classic Puritan devotions. Great works for private devotions, growing in Christ, and learning more on Puritanism.
