Heaven Taken by Storm


I just got my copy of this book in the mail. It was published by Don Kistler's publishing house Northampton Press.

I have to take the time to admit to you that part of the enjoyment of buying books online is having the package carried to and placed on my desk. *grin*

In light of what I've been struggling with and searching out lately, the back of the book jacket gave a pleasant expectation of things to come:

Many today believe that the Christian life is rather easy to obtain and live. But the Puritans saw it as warfare, as wrestling, as "holy violence," to use their term. The Apostle Paul spoke of beating his own body into subjection.

And this holy violence is to be brought not only against one's own self, but against Satan, the world, and heaven, too. And in this confrontation, we must use the weapons God has given us -- reading the Word, hearing the Word, prayer, meditation, self-examination, and the due observance of the Lord's Day.

Allow Thomas Watson to be your guide through the minefield that lies between us and heaven.


It's a hard-back book, too.... *grin*
