OUTSIDE SOURCE Book Review: "Valley of Vision: Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions"

I still smile when I remember one of our staff in Banner of Truth's Carlisle, PA, USA office, saying, "Doesn't EVERYONE in the United States have a copy of 'Valley of Vision' by now?" Well, they should! We should! If you need another's recommendation, check this one out.
SOURCE of the Review: "Ephemeros: The Thinking Christian" blog
BOOK REVIEWED: "The Valley of Vision"
THE REVIEW: "The Puritans recognized that prayer and doctrine are not to be separated. In their prayers they kept the two together. In fact it was their doctrinal understanding which produced such deep and lasting prayers. Theology instilled a thorough passion for prayer. Likewise it is prayer which sinks us deeper into the mysteries of God's self-disclosure of himself. It is prayer which furthers our theology. This collection includes prayers from great men such as Richard Baxter, John Bunyan, Isaac Watts, Charles Spurgeon, and others. A powerful aid to your own prayer life."

The Valley of Vision has taken our church by storm! I recommended it to our music committee chair, and he fell in love with it. Each week, our worship is centered around a Valley of Vision prayer. I open worship with an abbreviated form of the prayer, and before each hymn set our song leader reads an additional portion of the prayer.

The music leader has become so excited he purchased a copy (in leather!!!) for each member of the choir.

God is using this book in a mighty way in our small church!
