Overview

William Strong, A.M. (d. 1654) was an active Westminster Puritan and Calvinistic minister.

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, and God alone should be it. This is an extremely convicting work that will in no way leave the regenerate Christian unaffected.

Meet the Author

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.”
