Book Description:

An Honest, Well-Experienced Heart introduces us to the life and writings of Puritan preacher and author John Flavel (1627-1691).

In his brief, introductory biography, Adam Embry discusses Flavel's background, ministry, and theology of keeping the heart, which, for Flavel, "is the great business of a Christian's life." Centuries ago, Flavel wrote, "Above all other studies in the world, study your own hearts."

Embry guides us through forty-two short passages from Flavel's writings that acquaint us with this dedicated Puritan minister's piety and help us see the importance of this great business of keeping and managing our hearts.

Series Description
Interest in the Puritans continues to grow, but many people find reading these giants of the faith a bit unnerving. Puritan Treasures for Today seeks to overcome that barrier by presenting Puritan books that are convenient in size and unintimidating in length. Each book is carefully edited with modern readers in mind, smoothing out difficult language of a bygone era while retaining the meaning of the original authors. Books for the series are thoughtfully selected to provide some of the best counsel on important subjects that people continue to wrestle with today.


Adam Embry lives in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife, Charlotte, and their three children. He is a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and has been an assistant pastor of Auburndale Baptist Church since 2007.


"John Flavel blended skillfully a robust Reformed theology with a warm-hearted Puritan piety. This made his writings both profound and simple. I pray that Adam Embry's primer on Flavel's work will promote a new generation of thoughtful readers intent on loving Christ more."
--Ryan McGraw, pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church in Conway, South Carolina
