The resurgent appetite for Puritan literature has produced long book lists and heavy bookshelves. Intimidated students and busy pastors ask, Where do I start? Regular readers of the Puritans ask, Where do I go from here? The obvious answer to both questions now is, Meet the Puritans. I am confident that God will mightily use this mind-enriching, heart-warming, and soul-satisfying publication to arouse new interest in the Puritans, to stimulate demand for their books, and so to multiply among us the Christ-centered lives they so passionately promoted. --Dr. David Murray
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.
Personal Thoughts: I love this book. I have flipped through its pages so many times. This book really helped me to learn who the Puritans were and what exactly I wanted to read based on my own interests and reading levels. Don't get intimidated by the size of this book. Remember that it is primarily a reference tool. I think very much of the Puritans --they've helped me grow in my faith so very much with the help of the Holy Spirit. I truly hope that you would read a Puritan author one day. Start with Thomas Brooks or Richard Sibbes. Things will progress on their own from there...especially if you have the help of this book.
