Fading of the Flesh and the Flourishing of Faith

Stephen Yuille -- himself the author of two books about the theology of Puritan George Swinnock: Puritan Spirituality: the Fear of God in the Affective Theology of George Swinnock and Trading and Thriving in Godliness:The Piety of George Swinnock -- notes that Reformation Heritage Books is publishing a new edition of Swinnock's The Fading of the Flesh and the Flourishing of Faith.

RHB says:

In this book, George Swinnock presents modern readers with valuable food for thought as he expounds Psalm 73:26, “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” Swinnock combines careful explanation with vivid illustration to reveal the futility of earthly comforts and highlight the inestimable comfort, satisfaction, and joy afforded us in Christ. Displaying the relevance of the Puritans for today, you will find this sorely neglected and sobering topic an easy, thought-provoking, and compelling read.
