The Whole Duty of Divine Meditation

145 pages1 hour


Richard Allestree (1619-1681) was an English divine during the era of the Westminster Assembly.

Godly meditation is part of a Christian’s spiritual devotions. Spiritual devotions comprise Bible reading, prayer and godly meditation. Meditation is the musing and mental study of heavenly truths, working practical truths into one’s soul. In this, Christians are captivated with God’s disclosure of heavenly truths to them in the bible. Though Christians live in the world, they have communion with the God of heaven through the word of God, throughout the whole course of their lives. They do this through godly meditation.

Allestree not only shows what meditation is, and how it is to be done, but gives the reader twenty-eight meditations so that he can enter into a profitable time of daily meditation by practical example.
