The only reason this gets 3 stars is that publishing house didn t put forth any real effort to format this book I don t know of anyone that publishes in a 6 or 8 pt font The print is so small it will bother me every time I pick it up Each page has text on maybe 2 3 of the page I don t journal in my books so all that white space is wasted The description on doesn t mention the font size it only gives you the size of the book A bigger book does not mean a larger font Buyer beware. Wonderful book This is very helpful to any pilgrim on the journey This particular edition is cheap for these reasons 1 Very small font 8 maybe 2 No page numbers 3 The cover only covers the front the spine and back are blank Still a wonderful book. What a precious book, but a terribly difficult reproduction to read The print is so small that I can only read a page or two before being forced to stop in order to avoid a headache.Unless you have good eyes for reading, find another printing. Terrible publication by Scriptura Press Tiny print table of contents no page numbers blank spine back. This was my introduction to the writings of the Puritans, and I am astounded by Thomas Brooks ability to identify the same methods of distraction that still exist today A longer read than I m used to, this book kept me engaged on every page I would heartily recommend it to every Christian interested in drawing closer to the Savior. Reprint of an old book from the Puritan times I ve very inspired and thoughtful preacher who did a lot of work in the days before web searches Wonderful book worth every moment to read The strange opposition I met with from Satan, in the study of the following discourse, hath put an edge upon my spirit, knowing that Satan strives mightily to keep these things from seeing the light that tend eminently to shake and break his kingdom of darkness, and to lift up the kingdom and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the soul and lives of the children of men This is one of the seven reasons for writing this book which the author Thomas Brooks gives in his preface Among the publishers reasons for this reprint is the fact, noted by George Smeaton, that the best Christian authors of former times treated the seductive influence and terrible power of Satan in a way greatly full and suggestive than in the literature of the present day William Grimshaw, in the eighteenth century, was not the first nor the last to learn this lesson from Brooks Precious Remedies , and our modern age greatly needs the message which is thrust back into preeminence in these pages
