New Puritan Paperback!

Yes, indeed - Banner of Truth's Puritan Paperback series has given birth to new title - Thomas Watson's, "The Great Gain of Godliness: Practical Notes on Malachi 3:16-18." I love the story behind this one, as noted on the back of the book. C.H. Spurgeon, with his personal library of 12,000+ volumes, apparently didn't have this one by Watson, but desperately wanted it. Spurgeon is quoted as telling his college students: "This [volume] would be a great find if we could come at it, for Watson is one of the clearest and liveliest of Puritan authors. We fear we shall never see this commentary, for we have tried to obtain it, and tried in vain." Anyway, enough of the publisher's blurb - I'll get inside the book and try to give you personal "First Take" asap. Right now, however, I'm off to Valley Forge, PA until Saturday night for the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF) Conference, "Hope for Broken Relationships," at the Valley Forge Convention Center. More to come ...
Grace & peace,
