Take meditation for example. There are clusters of believers who consider that to be far-off and out there. The word meditation alone derives thinking that implies vulnerability and an eastern-world approach to thought.
We truly have no need to be scared of such a thing. In fact, the question to ask is not how do we meditate, but what do we meditate on?
It's really that simple, because all day long, the thoughts that infiltrate our mind are most often the thoughts that reside in our heart. For example, in the southern United States, college football is a huge way of life and lives are absolutely absorbed with it. Therefore, it is not just a Saturday event, but it is an object of passion that drives people thru each week. It is the talk of the town 7 days a week and people meditate (think, reflect, consider) on what happened last Saturday and what they hope to happen this Saturday.
This book will help define meditation, describe meditative principles and prescribe meditation in one's life for the purpose of sanctification.
This book is not only for the educated and scholar. It is for the everyday Christian and church-goer who wants to learn more about something that could truly transform their life and thought patterns. This book is helpful and it will not hurt to learn Puritan theology and understand why meditation mattered so much to them and should matter to all believers.
