Book Description

A pastor of forty years who has throughout his ministry found the Puritans to be a great source of spiritual encouragement, David MacKinnon presents here 366 extracts from the works of the Puritan pastor Richard Sibbes, which may be used each day of the year by readers as an aid to devotion.

Each extract has been carefully selected, and a suitable accompanying Scripture text provided at the start of each daily reading. Occasional antiquated words in the original have been updated, and overly long sentences have been shortened, but all with a view to retain Sibbes’ flow and meaning for present-day readers.

For those who have never encountered Sibbes before, this volume will serve as an excellent introduction. All will find in these daily readings spiritual refreshment for the soul, coming from one who in his day was known, appropriately, as the ‘heavenly doctor.’

    Where can we find rest for our souls throughout the year? Compiled and edited by David B. MacKinnon, Refreshment for the Soul provides a year of daily devotional readings from the ‘Heavenly Doctor’ Richard Sibbes.

    Each devotional reading includes a verse from the Bible and several paragraphs filling up 1-page per day. They are easy to read, yet go deep into the truths of God. Sibbes is incredible at bringing Scripture to life.

    Practical and Relevant

    Tenderness of heart and humility are a couple of topics first tackled in the book. Sibbes remains practical and relevant as his applications remain timeless. He presents a God who is warm and welcoming, ready to work on giving life to your soul.

    I was most impressed by the theology included throughout the book. Sibbes speaks of the advantage we have with the help of the Holy Spirit, as well as Christ’s work of intercession. There is much to learn as Sibbes leads us to worship.

    True Spirituality

    I also appreciated the fact that the topics of several devotions continue over multiple days of reading. For instance, a 10-part series on spiritual discouragement allows Sibbes to speak of diagnosing it as well as present strong reasons against feeling spiritually discouraged. So while this is a devotional read, it can be quite thorough on certain subjects.

    A prime example of the Puritan writing style, this book seeks to showcase true spirituality. Doctrine and practice go hand in hand. Christ is the focus of a life shaped by Scripture. Come and drink from springs of living water.

    I received a media copy of Refreshment for the Soul and this is my honest review.
