God's Battle Plan for the Mind - Book Review

This is a well-laid out, hard-hitting book on the topic of Biblical mediation.  The very word "meditation" brings to mind false religious groups/practices, but there is definitely a clear use of meditation in the Bible, and there are even commands to do so.  The book tells about "occasional" and "deliberate" meditation, both of which have their place.  This book lays all these things out, as well as other reasons for meditating on God's Word, distractions from doing so, and ways to aid in meditation.  For someone who struggles with doing so amidst the entertainment and busyness of life, this was an especially convicting and practical book.  There were many great quotes from Puritan authors such as Thomas Watson, Jonathan Edwards, Richard Baxter, and more--my book is pretty well marked up. I definitely recommend this!

I received this book from in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!

P.S. - For a good, longer review, check this out.  I should add some of my favorite quotes (such as two from this site) to my review, too.
