Product Information

Reader beware! You will face the testing of your soul’s growth when you read this classic of the classics. It will delight you, but it is a delight accompanied by the pain of spiritual growth. You may find that every one of your Christian bones have been broken, and reset, before you finish it. But then you will be far stronger in the faith than ever before. The massive original (1250 pages) went through seven printings in the first ten years. It was quoted by just about anyone who was anybody among the great Puritans, including John Owen, Thomas Goodwin, Matthew Henry, etc.

The beauty of this God-honoring book is this, that you can read it devotionally for five minutes or five hours. Just dip in anywhere and you will draw up blessings that will thrill you down to your toes.

Every page has memorable kernels of truth that will stick and be ever fruitful.

''The Christian’s safety lies in resisting. All the armor here provided is to defend the Christian fighting; none is to secure him fleeing.''

''Armor is not given for men to wear by the fireside at home, but in the field. How shall the Maker be praised if His arms are never tested?’''

''He that desires to live all his days in an isle of providence, where the whole year is summer, will never make a good Christian.''

''Most men are more tender of their skin than of their conscience; they had rather have the gospel provide armor to defend their bodies from death and hunger, than to provide armor to preserve their souls from sin and Satan.''

''A person becomes unconquerable when from Heaven he is endued with a holy boldness to draw forth the sword of the Spirit, and own the naked truth by a free profession of it in the face of death and danger. This is to have our ‘loins girded about with truth’.''

''Let not authority from man, but evidence from the Word, conclude your judgment''

''When a soul delivers itself, from an inward liking it has to Christ as to her husband, to be ruled by his Spirit, and ordered by His Word of Truth, here is a soul that loves Christ and His truth''

''The Christian has one standing rule, the Word of God, able to make the man of God perfect. He that would excel in the power of holiness must study this.''

No spiritual library is complete without this book. It has no peer.
