Book Overview

That prayer is most likely to pierce heaven which first pierces one's own heart.

For the Puritans, prayer was neither casual nor dull. Their prayers were passionate affairs, from earnestly pleading for mercy to joyful praise. These rich expressions of deep Christian faith are a shining example of holy living.

The Puritan combination of warm piety and careful intellect have fueled a renaissance of interest in their movement. This combination is on display in Piercing Heaven, a collection of carefully selected prayers from leading Puritans. The language in these prayers has been slightly updated for a modern audience while still retaining the elevated tone of the Puritans. With prayers from Richard Baxter, Thomas Brooks, John Owen, and many more, each prayer reminds us that heartfelt prayer is central to the Christian life.

   A Beautiful Book
I recommend this book to anyone. Turner said he wanted to thank employees who made the call and said: "Many thanks, in all areas." Brand new products are always welcome, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The pages are clean, the prices are reasonable and there are no misprints. It's hard to put into words how good the cover is, how well the design is done and how the story is told. The bookmark is made of fine blue linen, sewn to the binding, and it is the most beautiful blue ever. The book itself is a fine example of how to properly structure a book. What a puritan, Mr. Dhaliwal said. I love the way the pictures are arranged, the way the captions are created, the way the images are presented. Sorry I didn't post any images, but I want to surprise you. If you have any questions, I highly recommend this book. Even if anyone is curious about how you would use this book, it is more of a tool that you go to. Or, just say something you read at night before you go to bed. Instead of just praying, why not go to this book for inspiration? The Puritans, for whom the book is dedicated, are looking for that precious love that a puritan has with God. It's a good book, said Dr. Elizabeth Hinds, director of the University of Pennsylvania's School of Medicine. I've never seen a video game trailer that was so good, Keanu Reeves said. He said: "I'm so happy that we found him."
   "Updated language"
Go with the Valley of Vision instead, and for a defense of the English idiom of the church, seek out Peter Toon's None Archaic Nor Obsolete.
There are some books that have been made available to us to help us in our weakness, he said. Valley Vision has had several high-profile backers. The book is being published by Random House. This book of prayers can be used for meditation. I also like that you know who said what that valley vision lacks.
   Great Book
Overall, I'm very pleased with the book. The prayers of puritans are so rich and thought provoking, Raymond said. This was easier to read because the author changed the entire story to modern English. Thanks for the compliment.
   So rich and true
If you have a heart for God, you must be at the top of the class.
   Excellent and sobering prayers
The Puritans' prayers are excellent for devotional study. The book says: "They encourage an honest appraisal of man's condition before a HOLY GOD."
   Great resource for prayer
This book is a wonderful resource to fan the flame of your prayer life, Raymond said. The book is comprised of prayers from Puritan authors, some of which I knew and some I didn't. The puritans were spiritual giants in comparison to our slightly superficial state of Christianity today, and it shows in their prayers. To learn to pray for these guys! These prayers are dripping with great love for the Lord, and set an example of a heart on fire for communion with him. I have always enjoyed the Valley of Vision, but I believe I've had more fun with this one. The prayers are updated and seem to be more relatable to me. I have a job where I'm in my vehicle often, and I've found myself praying these things often when I'm on the road. Get it and read it, it's great stuff.
   Excellent book of prayers!
The book is a treasure trove of Puritan prayers. I love this book and really appreciate having access to the deep thoughts of these great men who loved the Lord with all their heart, Raymond said. It's just that they seem to always find the right words when I'm not able to. Very helpful for quiet time with the Lord. This book differs from The Valley of Vision by a few pages. Jordan Barowitz, of the University of Alabama, rated it highly. Quattrone said: "I feel like we are moving in the right direction."
   Rich and beautiful
This is a wonderful addition to my prayer closet. Their prayers are truly heartrending, I believe.
