Instructions for the Art of Divine Meditation

ByThomas White

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Thomas White (d. 1672) was a Calvinistic Presbyterian divine and Reformed preacher of the Gospel. Edmund Calamy said, it is "one of the best books we have on the subject." White uses Psalm 1:2 as his primary text, "...and on his law doth he meditate day and night." He gives an explanation of the words together with some short observations, and shows the nature, kinds, and differences of solemn, divine meditation. He clearly demonstrates that meditation is a duty, and then lays out directions, rules and preparations for mediation. He then gives the reader forty-six meditations to read, and then discusses rules given for meditating on scriptural passages. He ends the work with seven meditations on key doctrinal subjects like the mercies of God, sin, death, and the excellencies of Christ. This is not a scan or facsimile, has been updated in modern English for easy reading and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
