Not many Christians today are familiar with Nicholas Byfield (1579–1622). This is a tragedy. Byfield was a Calvinistic puritan divine with a sweet preaching style akin to that of Thomas Watson, and a simple writing style with the practicality of Jeremiah Burroughs. He was an extremely popular puritan in his day.

This work entitled, “Directions for the Private Reading of the Scriptures” was an admired work in his day. Byfield compiled an exquisite outline set to the number of the chapters assigned for reading the Bible every day in order to finish it in one year. He also gives the order and drift of each book of the Bible and methodically sets down key ideas and concepts. Finally, he has an entire section devoted, in a workbook style, to studying the Scriptures on key passages and subjects that will help Christians become aware of crucial points of religion throughout the Bible. This is an extremely practical work for Christians of all ages to help them fall in love with God’s word.
