Valley of Vision
Black leather
Share |

The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature. Too often ex tempore prayer lacks variety, order and definiteness. The reason for this lies partly in a neglect of due preparation. It is here that the care and scriptural thoroughness which others found necessary in their approach to God may be of help. This book has been prepared not to ‘supply’ prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before. The author was a Canon of St. Albans Cathedral, sometime Rector of Little Munden and Sacombe, Hertfordshire, and was for seventeen years a tutor in Biblical Theology and Christian Doctrine at All Nations Christian College. He died in October 1994 aged 79.

Definitely a 5! I keep the leather edition with my Bible and read it as part of my personal worship and prayer life. I am ordering this additional copy to give as a gift to a new Baptismal candidate. Puritan's still have the lead on prayer!- don bingham

The Valley of Vision is a wonderful treasure for believers and churches. As a youth pastor, I use VoV in numerous ways in our student ministry. Some of our teens have so valued it that they have purchased their own copies for devotional reading. We also use VoV occasionally in our church worship services.- Don

Excellent meditations! So far we have purchased 3 of the leather edition. We have personalized each one and they have become treasures that have abundantly blesssed each receiver. I have requests for at least two more and they are worth their weight in Heavenly gold! The Puritans truly were so blessed by God and walked with Him. For it is evident in these meditations! Buy it, buy many and give them to those whom you love! - E;izabeth

I keep this book on my night stand and read it often. The prayers are so deep and reveal such close relationships with the Almighty. I'm ordering more to give as gifts to friends. I don't think I could find a better gift for them.- vicky

Our family and our sons' families have used this wonderful collection for years in our personal, family and church devotions and prayers. It is truly a blessing as a tool for conscientious prayer. - Carolyn Thacker
