One thought on “A Lifting Up For The Downcast (Vintage Puritan)

  1. Douglas Wilson

    A marvelous book I have been chipping away at this book for some time, using a page or two of it as a quarry for my weekly meditations on the Lord s Supper My reason for doing that is that I wanted those meditations to be encouraging, and who is encouraging than the Puritans And this book once again puts the lie to the ludicrous notion that the Puritans were a censorious lot The best cure for that is actually to read them When it comes to the cure of souls, the Puritan pastors are unparalleled [...]

    Absolutely incredible This is a series of sermons on Psalm 42 11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul Bridge addresses the many burdens that cause us to be discouraged and downcast What is amazing is that Bridge anticipates and responds to just about any objection that you may be having as you read Many times throughout the book, I found myself saying, Okay, but what about this, or What about my situation only to find that Bridge addresses it in the next paragraph, as though he knew what his reader [...]

    This is one of the encouraging books by the Puritans, who tend to be very encouraging and practical in their writings The chapter I found to be most encouraging was A Lifting up in the Case of Great Sins The following lines are characteristic of William Bridge s thought, Let Christians carry this rule always up and down with them, namely, that a man is to be humbled for his sin, although it be never so small, but he is not to be discouraged for his sin, though it be never so great It is my dut [...]

    If all of your joy and peace comes from God, then no amount of disappointment in this life can unsettle you or cause you to become discouraged The promises of God are enough of a reason for us to be joyful and content in this life.Bridge leaves no corner unswept, but gives us every reason to trust wholly in Christ all our excuses are left ground to dust as to why we should be discouraged.

  6. Rod

    William Bridge understands discouragement I think he espouses Biblical answers in this book and is right on target I love the Puritans but I do think that their archaic manner of writing probably hindered this book a bit The reader simply has to work through the answers a bit than one would like It s a good one though

  7. Justin Andrusk

    An excellent exposition that addresses the question for the Christian Do I not have reason to be discouraged

  8. Gary M.

    The prescriptions for spiritual lethargy never changes as this 17th Century collection of powerful sermons by Puritan preacher William Bridge plainly demonstrates.
