 Little Blobs of Sunshine

 Richard Sibbes

Out now from Banner of Truth, two bright gems from the Puritan 'sweet dropper' Richard Sibbes.

 

 

The Tender Heart, new in the ‘Pocket Puritan’ series of mini-works

 

Josiah's Reformation, new in the ‘Puritan Paperbacks’ series


Richard Sibbes always sought to get under the superficial layer of his listeners’ behaviour and deal with their hearts, their affections and desires. In these books he explains that those who are tender-hearted do not simply desire salvation; they desire the Lord of salvation himself. Only when a person is brought to love the Lord with heart-felt sincerity will they begin to hate their sin truly instead of merely dreading the thought of God’s punishment of it.
