Meet the Puritans: With a Guide to Modern Reprints Hardcover – February 1, 2007
Frequently bought together
As furnaces burn with ancient coal and not with the leaves that fall from today s trees, so my heart is kindled with the fiery substance I find in the old Scripture-steeped sermons of Puritan pastors. A warm thanks to the authors of Meet the Puritans for all the labor to make them known. --DR. JOHN PIPER, Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota
The Puritans English, Scottish, American, and Dutch are being read again! In an era of superficial discipleship and erratic, impotent, ailing, and dying churches, this is indeed a hopeful sign. And this wide-ranging handbook of backup information about the writers themselves, their special strengths, and modern reprints of their books, is another hopeful sign. Meet the Puritans is a fascinating compendium, scholarly yet popular and accessible, that Puritan-lovers will value very highly and justly so. --DR. JAMES I. PACKER, author of Knowing God and A Quest for Godliness

I think this is probably intended for the person who has read at least a little of the well-known Puritans (start with Overcoming Sin and Temptation if you haven't) and intends to branch out to the other, less well known authors. It is absolutely worth the effort, and you'll be rewarded with far more serious and well considered theology than 9 of 10 "spiritual" works of today. By all means, buy this, and read the Puritans. The Church today needs their thinking, and the thoughts and actions of those who read them.
