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 timmybrister.com 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)

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!
