Product Description

''Young, fierce, progressive intellectuals, very fashionable and up-to-date.'' Could C.S. Lewis have been describing the seventeenth-century Puritans? Surprise! The dour modern stereotype is entirely wrong, and Ryken marshalls abundant evidence to prove it. His even-handed portrait points out both the faults and the virtues of Puritanism in its English and American contexts. This readable book is excellent introduction to the Puritans and their writings. 304 pages, paper from Zondervan.

Editorial Reviews

'A very persuasive...most interesting book...stuffed with quotations from Puritan sources, almost to the point of making it a mini-anthology.'
'With 'Worldly Saints,' Christians of all persuasions have a tool that provides ready access to the vast treasures of Puritan thought.'
'Ryken writes with a vigor and enthusiasm that makes delightful reading -- never a dull moment.'
''Worldly Saints' provides a valuable picture of Puritan life and values. It should be useful for the general readers as well as for students of history and literature.'
