LEGACY OF A LEGEND: The Spiritual Wisdom of Edward Payson
Edward Payson


Edward Payson (1783-1827) (Elizabeth Prentiss' father) was one of the greatest pastors and preachers of the early decades of America. This book is a compilation of his wise sayings about subjects like Love of God, Wisdom of God, The Folly of Unbelief, Man's Utter Dependence, Compassion and Condescension of Christ, and dozens of others.

"I highly recommend Legacy of a Legend. After reading it for myself and finding a treasure house of comfort and instruction for my own soul, we began to read it at our prayer meeting before we went to prayer. It flows so freely from the heart of Payson to the listener as it is full of scriptural truths without being laden with scriptural references. We have found it to be used by Holy Spirit to lead us in a more sincere time of prayer." - Andy Montoro, Pastor Oak Grove Baptist Church, Middleburg FL.

"Among the preachers of previous eras, Edward Payson stands tall. His profound meditation on God's Word gave his preaching and writing an unction that can lead men and women to be taken up more and more with the glorious being that is the triune God. Highly recommended." - Michael A.G. Haykin

"The wisdom of Edward Payson transcends time and place. Through his writings, and the writings of his daughter Elizabeth Prentiss, his legacy reaches over the centuries and graces our generation." - Susan Hunt

"This treasure is a miniature yet veritable Reformed systematic theology applied to mind and soul. Buy this book and read it slowly. Use it as a daily devotional. Meditate on small dosages. You will be well rewarded and concur that here is practical divinity in its purest form." - Joel Beeke

"Edward Payson entered deeply into the love of Christ, and reflected it to an eminent degree. Reading this book will surely bring blessings to the churches of our day." - Iain Murray
