Item Description...
John Flavel was born in the year 1628, the son of a minister who died in prison for his Nonconformity. In 1656, having been educated at University College Oxford, Flavel was invited to become the minister of a church in Dartmouth, Devon, where he spent the majority of his life. Though the Act of Uniformity of 1662 declared his public ministry illegal, he faithfully continued preaching and writing under the pressure of persecution. Flavel was pre-eminent in his ability to combine writings for the heart as well as the mind. The degree due to the affable and earnest tone in which he wrote. He died in 1691. Flavel's work entitled 'divine Conduct or the Mystery of Providence' was published in 1677. This is here presented in an easier-to-read version.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Understanding The Ways Of God  Jan 8, 2009
God Willing is an abridgement of John Flavel's 'The Mystery Of Providence'.I prefer the original title. God's providence can often be a mystery.The better we understand the ways of the Lord and how He accomplishes His will ,the less mysterious will His providential dealings appear to us. The best we obtain in this life is 'seen through a glass dimly', so that there will always be some element of mystery and awe when considering 'the ways of God'.
The author notes in chapter three that one of the key benefits of observing and remembering God's providential care for us,is that faith will be strengthened and we will be encouraged to press on,trusting the Lord for His help and deliverance in the future.
In the last chapter 'Practical Problems'there is sage counsel on how to discern God's will in difficult circumstances.A brief summary of what to do when there is still doubt as to what the will of God is for you:1.Have a fear of offending the Lord.2.Look for direction from the Word of God and not worldly standards.3.Obey what is clear to you.4.Pray for further light and to be kept from sinning.5.Follow providence only where it accords with Scriptural light.
One of the great benefits of reading the Puritans is exposure to the accurate and detailed knowledge they possesed of God's dealings with His people and all of His creation throughout mans history.They also expose some insidious errors that many embrace to their own detriment.In writing on trial and affliction for example p.53"Who told you to expect rest,ease and delight in this world?God has often told us that we must expect troubles in the world(john 16:33),and that we must through many affictions ...enter into the Kingdom of God(Acts 14:22).All that God has promised to do is to be with us in trouble,to supply our real needs and to make everything work together for our good(Psalm 91:15,Isaiah 41:17;Romans 8:28)."
For those who can read the writings of the Puritans(then perhaps they should stay with the unabridged)but for those who can't and also for younger believers and new Christians ,the abridged Puritan classics are a valuable means of opening the riches of these Puritan treasures to them.Personally I love them both,the unabridged and the abridged versions.
