Joy found in these pages

This collection of actual prayers finds the union of heartfelt passion for communion with God and a mournful sense of personal sin combined with the glorious hope of liberty in God's salvation through Jesus. I treasure every word.

Puritan Prose at it's Best

Excellent work! I was told about thisbook 4 years ago and finally purchased it a few months ago. Boy have I been kicking myself. Valley of Vision is a window into the worldview of our Puritan forefathers. They had a firm grasp on some major doctrine that today's church has long since lost. The prayers are so well thought out, so organized. We use them in our Sunday worship almost weekly. One man commented on the Puritan's grasp of the english language compared with today. The way the book is organized is also well done. Very user friendly. This book is the next best thing to a time machine to a history buff. It reveals the core values of the Puritan community and clarifies the reason for the great impact they had on our nation.
