a splendid book written by Spurstowe on the promises of God. Rich!!
What has God given us in His “precious and great promises?” In The Wells of Salvation Opened, Puritan William Spurstowe reveals how these promises are all we need for “life and godliness.” In twenty-one chapters, readers will see how Christians can find power in God’s certain Word for their daily lives. Follow Spurstowe as he faithfully reminds us of the promises given to them in Christ and the gospel.
“William Spurstowe is finally getting some of the recognition that his writings deserve. A pious Presbyterian willing to suffer for his convictions, Spurstowe exhibits in these pages a pleasing sense of humor mixed with a biblical and practical piety. The subject is treated with utmost seriousness, the author with a touch of self-deprecation. Graced with an informative introduction, this carefully edited reprint will bless Christians who wish to better understand the greatness, preciousness, usefulness, and Spirit-worked effects of God’s promises to believers.”
