Flowers from a Puritan's Garden

Image result for flowers from a puritan's garden
"Flowers from a Puritan's Garden" by C.H. Spurgeon is a storehouse of both spiritual and practical instructions cloaked in word-pictures or illustrations. Spurgeon would read Thomas Manton's sermons and other writings and be constantly struck with his "solid, sensible instruction forcibly delivered." And beside Manton's highlighted excerpts, the Prince of Preachers would add his own thoughts, making this Puritan Paperback a double-masterpiece. It is illustrations, meditations, prayers, admonitions, exhortations that provide so much reflection as multifarious as a well-kept garden. This is an excellent tool for meditation and devotion. 305 pages of gold, silver, and precious stones.

Publisher: Banner of Truth (BoT) (first published by Passmore & Alabaster, London, 1883; today is published by BoT, 2017).

Series: Puritan Paperbacks.

Pages: 320, including a helpful index of subjects starting on pg. 307.

No Table of Contents - just dive into the book, and relish the wisdom of these gifted men.

There is a Kindle version of this book on Amazon's website, fyi, but it isn't as attractively done as BoT's paperback edition.
