To Richard Sibbes the Gospel was truly good news, and he "sought to allure us to ... Christ's mild, safe, wise, victorious government." He does just this in "The Bruised Reed," his best known work. Frequently called "the heavenly Sibbes," Sibbes was admired both for his preaching and his godly life. Izaac Walton, author of the Compleat Angler, wrote of Sibbes: Of this blest man, let this just praise be given, Heaven was in him, before he was in heaven. This edition also includes "A Description of Christ," an exposition of Matt 12:18.

Anyone who lacks true contentment may find it in this book. If not, it will be because that one would not follow the very clear and simple instructions given. The teaching is from the Bible, yet it must be described as unique. Nowhere else will you find such unusual, but Biblically authenticated thoughts: He will teach you that contentment lies in subtraction, not in addition; that the ABC's of Christianity are nothing like what you thought them to be; that there is a mystery of contentment, but that once you have learned the way from Christ's word, you will be able to attain such a depth of contentment as you never before dreamed existed.

Too often believers are convinced that Christians should never be unhappy. But Scripture records many instances of men and women who glorified God while facing a season of discouragement and despair. In "A Lifting up for the Downcast", Puritan Pastor William Bridge reasons that there is no reason for discouragement, no matter what cause and conditions may arise. Hyperlinked with hundreds of embedded Scripture references and helpful footnotes, this edition is an entirely new, gently modernized text that is approachable to today's readers while retaining its original character. Includes a biographical preface.
