This book represents Puritanism almost at its best. Richard Sibbes deals with Josiah's heart reformation, applies this point to the believer, and then applies these principles to the reformation of the church and society. Sibbes also had a very high view of the civil magistrate's authority concerning matters of religion, and argued that national or ecumenical councils ought not to be held unless called by the King or Emperor.

Banner have done a great job in reprinting this work in such an easy to read format. It is a while since I went through the Puritan Paperback series, but I suspect that this volume is one of the best in the series. Nov 13, Blake rated it liked it. Our oldest son's middle name is Josiah. We named him that because one of my heroes in Scripture is King Josiah. If you read the story of Josiah in Scripture, you soon realize why this man was truly an amazing man. Yes, you read that correctly.
It wasn't too long into his reign when he began a reformation for the nation. It was return to the Word of God that the nation had at that time. It was a re Our oldest son's middle name is Josiah. It was a return to a life of humility and brokenness for this king as he sought God and did what was right in God's eyes. As a result God blessed him in amazing ways. Second, Sibbes talks about the beautiful art of Self-Humbling, showing how Josiah humbled himself before God and the results of self-humbling in Josiah's life. Third, the author speaks to the art of Mourning, an interesting section noting the brokenness and mourning found in the life of Josiah as he saw the spiritual condition of God's people.
And last the author speaks to the Saint's Refreshing, noting that God promised that because of Josiah's heart for God and His Word, that he Josiah would not have to see the devastation of judgment that God is going to bring upon the land of Israel due to their staggering rebellion Throughout each chapter, the author makes each of these points very practical to the life of the believer, which was really a great reminder and a great opportunity to be exhorted and encouraged.

I merely point out two weaknesses to this excellent book and I prefer to not make a huge issue about these because the bulk of the book is tremendous, however, the two weaknesses of Josiah's Reformation are found in, 1 The author seems to view the church as spiritual Israel and thus he makes some specific applications of things that in a Hermeneutical sense, can't be applied; and 2 The book is written in the old, King James English style of the Puritans, which is not a tremendous weakness but merely forces the modern day reader to really slow down and try to think through each sentence, thus it takes longer to read this Puritan classic.
These two weaknesses are not major issues and thus, I hesitate to even bring them out, for fear that the reader may miss the treasure of the book. Dec 19, Alexander Peck rated it it was amazing.
The book comes in Four parts. The Tender Heart 2. The Art of Self-Humbling 3. The Art of Mourning which is mourning about sin 4. The Saints Refreshing which is more about death [in part] Part 3 is great.
