    Looking for a few recommendations of good Puritan treatments on the subject of the fear of God.

    This is a wonderful read: "The Great Gain of Godliness" by Thomas Watson. He comments on Malachi 3:16-18.

    Just consulted Robert P. Martin. He has this on the topic:

    William Bates - "On the Fear of God". 3:167-229
    Thomas Boston - "Fear and Hope". 9:66-95
    Thomas Boston - "The Happiness of Fearing Alway". 3:5-12
    William Bridge - 2:422-31
    John Bunyan - "A Treatise on the Fear of God". 1:437-91
    Jeremiah Burroughs - "Gospel Fear"
    John Flavel - "A Practical Treatise on Fear". 3:239-320
    Matthew Henry - "Hope and Fear Balanced". 2:299-314
    Thomas Manton - "Sermon on Malachi 3:17" 18:337-47

    For some reason I didn't think to look at Martin's guide. Thanks, Alex.

    Fear of God...

    John Owen makes a great case on the fear of God and for your soul in Mortification of Sin.
