John Howe (1630–1706) was an English Puritan theologian who studied at Christ’s College, Cambridge, and at Magdalen College, Oxford receiving a B.A. in 1650 and M.A. in 1652. For a time, Howe was a fellow and college chaplain at Oxford.
This newly typeset and modernized work, one of Howe’s most popular which was originally published in 1674, is taken from Psalm 37:4 “Delight thyself in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine Heart.” Howe demonstrates the object to be delighted in (God), the access sinful men have to God (through Christ), and how God is to be considered man’s delight. He shows that the soul must delight in God, and that proper instrument of conformity arises from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then, he gives a number of directions for improving in religion, of motives and principles of a religious life, and directions on having a sole dependence on God. This points the sinner to a holy, consistent practice of delighting in God.
