Summary

In this classic volume, edited by Arthur Bennett, the prayers of the Puritans are brought to life. Including prayers of Richard Baxter, John Bunyan, Isaac Watts, Charles Spurgeon, and others, The Valley of Vision is a selection of petitions and meditations in the Puritan tradition. This compilation of prayers is intended to teach and encourage Christians to be faithful in their private and family worship.

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 not been prepared to “supply” prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before.

Makes a wonderful gift!

The puritans were a praying people, and this book is a collection of some of their excellent prayers. I find The Valley of Vision to be a great aid for devotions.”

Testimonials

Favorite devotional

Frederick S

No wonder the Puritans were called Doctors of the Soul. I read this every day along with my Tabletalk Magazine. I have given many as gifts. It is not ment to replace spontaneous prayer, but often reminds me of sin I need to repent and blessings I need to thank God for.

A Wonderful Prayer Book!

John A. Thrasher

This book "Valley of Vision" expresses in words everything my heart wants to say. I am really enjoying it, and I have given copies of it away to others.

Blessed to be a blessing

Janice Blum

The Lord has blessed me with His strengthening, encouraging, and disciplining presence as I read these prayers and devotions in worship and when weak, disheartened or repentant. I always find His comfort in the pages of this book as it testifies to the truths of His Word. I have given this little book away to discouraged and hurting people several times only to discover that it has truly blessed them as well.

Wonderful prayer book

Amanda

My friend has this book, and I have been going through it. I really like the ways it exalts the Lord and how it expounds on His majesty and beauty going through His characteristics, right on with Scripture. I recommend this book.
