This post is a treasure trove of shorter works. (H/T J Wilson)
What are they you ask? They are wise things that clever dead dudes (and a few living ones) who love Jesus and knew the gospel wrote down for people like you and me to read. Reading the list I see tons of Jonathan Edwards who as readers may know is one of my favourite dead dudes.
Anyway, why don't you take some time to read just one of them from this wonderful collection. Be warned, it may not be easy, but give yourself some time, get a pen and a coffee to underline and scribble notes, work out what the writer is saying and apply the wisdom of the message onto your heart. I am resolved to make the effort to read Thomas Chalmers 'The explusive power of a new affection' which I have been meaning to do for a while.
For what it's worth this is my list:
A divine and supernatural light by Edwards
The method of grace by George Whitfield
Advantage from remaining sin by John Newton
Introduction to Owen's death of death by J I Packer
The Centrality of the Gospel by Keller
