The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions- Gift Edition, black bonded leather
I've added this book to my nightly devotional and truly enjoy it. For anyone who is really interested in our Founders and their faith, this is a must read. It can be read as any other book, or as the ending to your daily devotionals. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed.

Faithful prayers from the Puritans
These Puritans prayers are a collection by category, edited by Arthur Bennett, Canon of St Albans Cathedral, England. The prayers are filled with verses that capture heart issues in, as Canon Bennett describes them, animated prose, good fodder for sermons and meditations. The prayers are from a number of authors up to Charles Spurgeon in time.
The book itself has a leatherette cover, good enough quality and nice to hold. CB offers imprinting on the cover, so I had my name imprinted. Font options are minimal. Would have liked one that matched the title's. The pages are similar to thin Bible pages. Nice to touch. A little ghosting through from other side, a minor distraction.
Ordered one also as a gift. Overall: good value.

Besides my Bible, this is one of the best assets a person can have for their devotional time. With almost 200 prayers, I thought at least some of them would be irrelevant to me. Was I wrong! Each one is powerfully moving, packed with theology. Whether you're joyful or stressed, young or old, these prayers are faithful to remind you of your need of a great, great God.
I was surprised at how small the book is, but I have no complaints. I really don't know how they did it, but for a book 7.25 in tall and half an inch thick, they managed to fit in over 400 pages. Surprisingly, the font is quite large, and the paper is thick and high-quality.
Overall, this small, portable book packs a punch. Everyone should consider getting this. It's extremely uplifting to try to follow in the shoes of some of the most devoted people ever. 10/10!
