- learning what Biblical meditation is
- how to practice meditation
- what subjects to chose
- what benefits there are to meditation
- and more
About the Author- David W. Saxton and his wife have five daughters. He is a senior pastor of Hardingville Bible Church.
My thoughts- God’s Battle Plan for the Mind, by David W. Saxton, has convinced me that I need to dedicate more of my life to Biblical meditation. Until I read this book I did not realize how I had been neglecting my dedication to God and his word. I need to make sure I get up early in the morning when my head is clear and spend my time thinking and studying upon the word of God.
Saxton did a wonderful job in researching and including the most important quotes from Puritan resources. I really appreciate the list of resources in the back of the book. The quotes helped me understand how important Biblical meditation was to the Puritans and how it should be to us today.
One of the best parts of this book was how Saxton included the role that technology and day-to-day life has played in the decline of our meditation. He also talked about how meditation is not a bad practice. It is important.
I think this is a very important book for everyone to read. We all need to meditate upon God’s word.
