Richard Rushing has compiled this book of daily devotional readings from his favourite Puritan authors because of the great help he has gained from their Works. 'How thrilling it has been for me to read the Puritans on the glory and attributes of God, divine providence, fellowship with God, holiness of life and the mortification of indwelling sin, heavenly mindedness, prayer, evangelistic zeal, and trust in the Lord during times of affliction. At every turn these truths are eloquently taught, faithfully applied, and kindly offered as the subject of sweet spiritual meditaion.' This book is sent forth with the prayer that it will open a door to the vast stores of treasure to be found in the writings of the Puritans and that it will stimulate further exploration of this rich spiritual inheritance.
All believers desire to deepen their relationship with God. After the Bible, devotional books are popular among believers because it is quick and easy. However, not all devotional books are of equal worth. Some are fluff and others are motivational, but not necessarily Biblically deep. If you want to grow deeper, and become thoroughly Biblical in all aspects of devotional life, strongly consider Puritans. And this book, Voices From The Past meets that void. I was hooked on the Puritans after reading Richard Sibbes' The Bruised Reed and John Owen's The Mortification of Sin. And I longed to find a daily devotional reading that covered the Puritans. One was  and fit the bill well. And now we have Voices From The Past which is also excellent!

1. CHARACTER. The uniqueness and the excellence of the Puritan writings is that they are BOTH doctrinal and experimental. They are doctrinally rich yet also touch the heart and tender to the soul. In short, their writings are pastoral - always engaging the bruised, struggling, and fragile saints, to bind them up in the Lord's love. In this book, you will consistently see that. You will be revived, restored, and drawn to your Savior with more fervency, joy, and confidence.
2. CONTENT. The book covers various topics of Christian life, some of the them are: Affliction, Comfort, Christ (and His love), Blessings, Contentment, Death, Battle with sin, self, and Satan, Faith, Repentance, Prayer, Glory of God, Happiness, Holiness, Humility, Obedience, Promises, Providence, Salvation, Suffering, Temptation, and will of God. All these topics are the concerns of every believer, and now you will hear what the Puritans have said about them and you will find deep wisdom and call to trust in God's love and grace.
3. AUTHORS. The book covers various Puritans (about 23 authors), among them: Richard Baxter, Thomas Brooks, William Cooper, Jonathan Edwards, John Flavel, Thomas Manton, John Owen, Richard Sibbes, and Thomas Watson. These are amazing list of Puritans.
4. PHYSICAL MAKE UP OF THE BOOK. The book is handsomely bound in hardcover. It is Smyth-sewn (stitched and not glued) so it will last a long time. Pages are strong and prints are clear and dark. Dust Jacket is glossy and beautiful.

All in all, I love the book!!! Highly recommended!

If you're tired of cheesy, sappy devotionals that sound formulaic because they are, try this one! A daily Bible verse at the top, and then a full page excerpt from one of many godly Puritans from the past. Each day's page makes me want to keep reading into the next month. It's difficult to read just this single page on any given day, because you get to the end and immediately wish you could keep reading from that day's writer.

And, no shallow "interpretations" of anecdotal chicken-soup stories at the end of each passage. JUST the passage and the Bible verse. I don't need modern writers to interpret the passages for me or put them in context. This stuff is pure gold.

Der Bat
I bought Voices From The Past after a VERY long search for a good devotional that is scripturally faithful, challenging, easy to read, and relevant. Now, this isn't exactly the thing you think of when you read the word "Puritan," but compared to every other devotional I've encountered, this is by far the best. I ended up purchasing about 3-4 more copies for some others who were looking for a good devotional as well.

The format of the book is a one-page-per-day reading (around 300-350 words per day), like Faith's Checkbook by Charles Spurgeon. Each of the articles are taken directly from the work of a particular Puritan author. Sometimes they are re-worded, shortened, or made more understandable, in order to give the reader a good reflection for the day. Other times, the reading for the day is a more exact copy of what they wrote. If the reader pays careful attention, they'll be able to see various themes that the reflections focus upon, over a number of days.

There are citations at the bottom of each page, so that the reader can have a reference as to where this particular reflection comes from, unlike The Valley of Vision (though this prayer book is a must-read for all, in my opinion).

I give it five-stars because of its clarity, accessibility, relevancy, and integrity.

This is a great resource, even if you don't use it as a daily devotional. The topical index and Scripture reference index in the back make it a wonderful reference tool for personal study or devotions, as you can find readings on many important Scripture passages. This is a book I will use regularly for years to come.

Daily readings from Puritan writers that is a good companion to my daily Bible reading. The Puritans were spiritual giants, though not perfect by an means. This collection places their pearls of wisdom within reach for those of us who haven't the time to read their classic works for ourselves in order to glean these treasures. Well worth buying!

I loved it so much I had to give it away as a gift before I finished reading it. The Puritans pass on a rich legacy, and I want to be part of it.

Superb. I had never before considered the spiritual depth that sustained the English migrants who came to this challenging "new world" in the 1600s. I use this as a companion reader with "Valley of Vision," also highly recommended.

This is quickly becoming my favorite devotional apart form the bible. I wake up and look forward to spending time within these pages after the scriptures.
