Product Description

Meet the Puritans is the only comprehensive guide to the lives and works of more than 120 Puritan authors, leaders, and theologians.

Each Puritan receives a biographical vignette that is comprehensive in scope, but which emphasizes their major contributions to the movement. Each biography varies in length according to the contributions of each person; some are as short as one-two pages while others are well over 20 pages.

Accompanying the biographies are brief synopses of each author's work and the historical provenance and significance of each is explained. The biographies reflect the basic facts of each life, and problematic areas are not glossed over. Moreover, for each Puritan work, bibliographic information is provided and lists the most recent edition or (in the opinion of the authors of Meet the Puritans) the best edition of the work still in print today.

Thus, Meet the Puritans truly provide an introduction both to every major Puritan, but also a handy bibliographic reference to their works.

Now, repackaged in order to reflect its sister volume--the groundbreaking A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life--this handsome hardback edition will provide direction and guidance for studying the Puritan tradition for years to come.

Puritans Included:
  • William Ames
  • Richard Baxter
  • Anne Bradstreet
  • John Bunyan
  • Thomas Cartwright
  • Stephen Charnock
  • Jonathan Edwards
  • John Flavel
  • William Gurnall

  • Thomas Hooker
  • Thomas Manton
  • Cotton Mather
  • John Owen
  • Samual Sewall
  • George Swinnock
  • Thomas Watson
  • John Winthrop
  • And many, many more!

Endorsements

"Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson have given us a priceless treasure in this introduction to the Puritans and Puritan literature. My prayer is that [this book] will help spark a new wave of interest in the Puritans, a new appreciation for theology, and especially a revival of their passion for careful biblical exposition." -Dr. John MacArthur

"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

"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
