    After years of trying to obtain it, I finally got a copy of this book today. Has anyone else read it or found it helpful?

    If memory serves me correctly Archibald Alexander extensively quotes from it in Thoughts on Religious Experience.

    Indeed he does. Chapter IV of Archibald Alexander's Thoughts on Religious Experience is chocked full of nuggetts from Rogers.

    I have not read Rogers' work, but from what A.A. quotes of him, I would say it is a most remarkable work.

    Spurgeon also quotes from him or cites him in Treasury of David, Lectures to My Students, The Saint and His Saviour, The Sword and the Trowel, and various sermons.

    I don't know about Rogers' work, but I have read Richard Baxter on Melancholy - and it is a great read and full of practical counsel!

    Baxter is indeed good. The real Puritan classic on this subject, in my opinion, is Joseph Symonds, The Case and Cure of A Deserted Soul.

    Voetius and Hoornbeeck on Spiritual Desertion is also excellent.

    Spurgeon often refers to Simon Browne along with Timothy Rogers.
