The End of Many Books

The Godly Man’s Picture

by Thomas Watson

I read this again because the men’s group at our church is working through it this year. Watson is full of wisdom. And like Proverbs, the book can be hard to read in big chunks, partly due to Watson’s pithy language and partly due to the proliferation of proverbial wisdom; you want your mind to marinate.

Though man is in the title, it’s not just something for males; ladies would benefit. But ladies would also be abundantly blessed without reading it if the men in their lives lived out the application Watson pictures.

Just one quote as an example (get and read the book for more like it):

“He who hath only a painted holiness, 
shall have a painted happiness.”
