Beautiful Contemplative Work
March 7, 2015
This is a wonderful compilation written by a number of Puritan authors including John Newton, Isaac Watts, Augustus Toplady, and others. The men of that generation were so focused and wise! They seem to have a tremendous understanding of the scriptures and the person of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The poems have a depth that the modern church has lost. The reader may recognize some of the themes of the poems, which appear in beloved Christian hymns.
The poetry is categorized, with some of the classifications being: sanctification, prayer, grace, God's sovereignty, pride, heaven, the law, and so on. I recommend you read this very slowly and meditate on the words of the poems. I have been reading this book nightly for several months; the meditations are so thoughtful and so thought-provoking that I am savoring them and chewing on them. I highly recommend this book for any serious disciple who wants to know the Lord better. This is a tremendous resource, and will deepen your appreciation for Jesus.
For those who are lovers of poetry, I could not recommend a more treasured collection of poetry than that which is found in 'Worthy is the Lamb.' This book is a collection of Christian poems written by Puritans of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Such Puritans presented are Benjamin Keach, Philip Doddridge, Augustus Toplady, Isaac Watts, and John Newton (author of hymn 'Amazing Grace'). The Puritans were Christians greatly devoted to living pure lives in honor of their love for Jesus, and that strong devotion can be seen in their poetry. The poems in 'Worthy is the Lamb' will assist in elevating the hearts of Christians today to a level of devotion towards Jesus Christ that is the great tradition given to us by the Puritans.
