Christians today have a lot to learn from the devotional life of the early church. In Fount of Heaven, a collection of carefully selected prayers from the first six centuries of the church, we can pray with our spiritual forefathers. Prayers from luminaries such as Clement of Rome, Irenaeus, and Augustine are arranged by theme to reveal the right prayer for the moment. The prayers have been slightly updated to read more easily, but they retain their joy and mystery. As we turn to the prayers of the first Christians, we can return to the foundations of our own faith.
The Puritan combination of warm piety and careful intellect has 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. Includes prayers from Richard Baxter, Thomas Brooks, John Owen, and many more. Watch a video review or a video introduction.
This edition has been reformatted for journaling and meditation. With wider lined margins and a new introduction by Jenny-Lyn de Klerk, readers of the Piercing Heaven Prayer Journal will be able to pray more deeply with the Puritans through note-taking and reflection.
