I love publishing works on Westminster Puritans. Why not go back to the source of theological precision to read and study from the "Precisionists?" William Strong was one of those Westminster Divines that no one has a clue about but should be right up there with Thomas Watson and Jeremiah Burroughs.

William Strong, A.M. (d. 1654) was an active Westminster Puritan and Calvinistic minister. Obadiah Sedgwick, another assembly member, said of him, “…he was so plain in heart, so deep in judgment, so painful in study, so frequent, exact, and laborious in preaching, and, in a word, so eminently qualified for all the duties of the ministerial office, that he did not know his equal.” Think about that - others of his caliber said he was without equal. For more information about him see this article: A Puritan's Mind » William Strong (d. 1654)

This work by William Strong is a treatise on discovering where the treasure of your heart is placed. He shows the certainty and stability, and moral goodness, of the heart being placed on God (the greatest heavenly treasure), and the instability and fleeting nature of the heart placed on “earthly” treasures (everything else outside of God). He works from Christ’s direction in the text, “Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also,” (Matt. 6:20-21), demonstrating that every man in this life has a treasure, how to know what your chief treasure is, and the manner in which one should lay up treasure by placing their heart in God alone. This is an extremely convicting work that will in no way leave the regenerate Christian unaffected.
