Though the speech is old fashioned, the advice is invaluable. Most of it is about making the gospel central in your life. But it goes through various common ways in which straying from the gospel causes a Christian to lose his joy, while acknowledging that some temperaments are more prone to introspection than others.

There is lots of good advice in here, and I'll definitely pick this book up again from time to time and meditate on various chapters.

One caveat: D. Martyn-Lloyd Jones does hold the view that Catholicism adds too much to the gospel. But it's only mentioned a time or two, and I think a Catholic reader could enjoy this book.
