William Spurstowe (1605–1666) was an English, Calvinistic minister, theologian, and member of the Westminster Assembly. He was one of the Smectymnuus group of Presbyterian ministers, who went on to provide core leadership for the anti-episcopal forces in the Church of England, continuing into the Westminster Assembly, where they also opposed the Independent movement.
This unique work is a 60 day puritan devotional. It houses 60 short meditations on various subjects that pull in both scripture and spiritual insight into their biblical comparisons; like the morning dew that is likened to the grace of God that descends in bounty each day for the good of his people. Spurstowe spent years developing these 60 devotional readings which cover everything from grace, to holiness, to justification, prayer, diligence, redemption and the majesty of God. The entries are continually magnificent in their employment of God’s grace and the work of Jesus Christ. In the preface, the original publisher said that such writings of Spurstowe were “holy flights of the soul” reaching up to heaven to taste of Christ at the right hand of God the Father. This is a rare puritan gem that should not be missed!
