    Joseph Hall, was directly involved in the Smectymnuus controversy as a defender of episcopacy by divine right, but was Puritan-minded in other areas. He wrote The Divine Art of Meditation and Joel Beeke's essay on Puritan meditation quotes him extensively. His Contemplations were praised by Charles Spurgeon and George Whitefield, among others, and are available online here. More of his works are available online here. There is a biographical sketch of him in Meet the Puritans by Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson as well.

    Thanks for the info. I'm interested because, last Lord's Day, I stumbled across a copy of Hall's Contemplations in our church's library. Now, I've got to read it!
