The Blessed and Boundless God
Summary: Who can be compared to the Lord? Oh blessed, eternal, everlasting, omniscient God! How your attributes have been exalted in this little volume! Our views are so small in light of such a mighty God. These short, readable chapters are so rich and so powerful. Oh, what do we have, or what can we do that would add to the greatness and gloriousness of the Lord? Alas, nothing. He is incomparable perfect and complete in Himself. And wonder of wonders... yet He is mindful of us.
Personal Thoughts: This is Puritan reading at its very finest. The language has been updated from the original to appeal to a greater readership. As a result, this little volume is just packed with glorious, wondrous statements of our God that any one can easily understand. This is the first book I would put in someone's hand who wanted to read something of depth. This book is meat for the soul and as a result, I believe this book is meant to be devoured slowly. It would be excellent for devotional use as it is infused with Scripture. This book made an enormous impact on me. Yes, it made deep impressions that will last, Lord willing, a long time.
Quote: The misery of sinners consists in the fact that they will depart from the incomparable God for all eternity. They will lose the communion of perfect saints, the company of glorious angels, and the blessed exercises of the heavenly host. They will lose the only Paradise of Pleasure, the only Fountain of Living Water, and the only Author of true happiness.
