Let’s Read Some Watson!

Hey there!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’m reading along with Brother Kofi this month as we work through Thomas Watson’s classic book The Godly Man’s Picture (Drawn with a Scripture Pencil). That’s right, getting a head start on my #Booktober2022 list!

If you want to join us, it’s not too late! You can find PDF versions of the book for free online, but you should also go ahead and order a good copy from Banner of Truth. (#NotSponsored, though that would be cool, wouldn’t it? Maybe one day.)

Kofi’s reading plan can be found at that first link above, along with a link to a Discord server for conversation (which I admit will be the first time I will be using Discord, if I can figure the thing out). If you take part and jump into the discussion, let them know The4thDave sent you by!

I’ll post updates here from time to time when things jump out at me from the reading, because I expect this will spur some good contemplation. And if you’re planning on reading along with us, let me know in the comments! See ya!


#OctTBR2022 Day 9: Puritan Paperbacks.

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What They Are: Four fantastic selections from the Banner of Truth Puritan Paperbacks series.

Why I’m Reading Them: Reading the writings of the Puritans is hard and rewarding. I picked up these beauties earlier this year and I just know they will be mentally stimulating and spiritually rewarding. I’m starting with The Godly Man’s Picture next month, as I read along with Kofi Adu-Boahen’s online reading group on Twitter. The others will follow not to far behind it.

Have you read any of these books, or any other works by the Puritans? Which one is your favorite? Share it in the comments below!
