The Puritan Reading Challenge 2008

I recently ran across a blog challenge to read a different Puritan paperback every month during 2008. That rocks!

Yes, I know it's June. Okay, so I'm a little friggin' late but I'm going to work hard to catch up.

You can check out the challenge over at and buy the books at a discount through Reformation Heritage Books (link to the left under "shop").

The books and schedule are as follows:

January: The Bruised Reed by Richard Sibbes (128 pp)

February: The Mystery of Providence by John Flavel (221 pp)

March: The Godly Man’s Picture by Thomas Watson (252 pp)

April: Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices by Thomas Brooks (253 pp)

May: Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ by John Bunyan (225 pp)

June: The Mortification of Sin by John Owen (130 pp)

July: A Lifting Up for the Downcast by William Bridge (287 pp)

August: The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs (228 pp)

September: The True Bounds of Christian Freedom by Samuel Bolton (224 pp)

October: The Christian’s Great Interest by William Guthrie (207 pp)

November: The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter (256 pp)

December: A Sure Guide to Heaven by Joseph Alleine (148 pp)

Reformation Heritage is offering a good deal on all 12 books ($65 plus shipping). As I indicated yesterday, your spiritual growth may take a serious step forward thanks to the works of these brilliant men!

So, throw down some change, block off some time and prepare to party like it's 1659!
