In a number of respects this post follows on from my earlier post on the Spiritual Life.

This book "Solitude Improved" is simply one of the best Puritan books I have read on Biblical meditation. Here is a helpful introduction to this work by Reformation 21. They start their comments by saying "One of the best books upon the subject. If that is the case, Ranew's book would seem especially relevant for today, when meditation is often heavily misunderstood (if not entirely ignored)."

They mention John Bunyan's work on Prayer in this essay. I found that helpful because Biblical meditation and Prayer go together. The Puritans believed that Biblical meditation was vital for an effective prayer life.
