Product Description

Arguably the most significant spiritual and biblical theology ever penned from the English Puritan era, the presentation of William Gurnall's (1616-1679) The Christian in Complete Armour in an accessible single volume is certainly a landmark, and much welcomed, event.

According to the Apostle Paul, the world is at war. Not a "hot war" but a war in the realm of the spirit. This war, paul warns, requires special armament, and he explains that armament in Ephesians 6. Anglican cleric Gurnall began to explore Paul's exhortation in sermons and lectures, which he published under the title The Christian in Complete Armor. A perennial best-seller in Gurnall's own lifetime, these teachings became his legacy, influencing well over three centuries of Christians and eliciting praise from the likes of Richard Baxter, John Flaven, John Newton, Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards.

Historical theologians and Church Historians should benefit greatly from this volume, as should anyone who stands in the Reformed tradition. It sheds much light on the pre-critical puritan view of the world, as well as illuminating a subject matter both theologically and spiritually that us moderns either ignore or take for granted.

    To comment on the work itself, The Christian in Complete Armor is amongst the most valuable works ever written for the Christian outside the Bible. The careful reader will find it overflowing with practical wisdom and sharp insight. It is a comfort, an encouragement, edifying, and often very pithy.

    The entire book covers just Ephesians 6:10-20, but, despite the obvious focus on the immediate subject of spiritual warfare, covers a tremendous breadth of matter. Gurnall writes for the common man/woman who loves and desires to serve his/her Lord, but is able to carry the common person to heights unimagined in many pulpits today.

    Yes, it's written in the English of the times - it's a little more readable than the KJV. I find it perfectly readable, though occassionaly the phrasing of a passage requires a little scrutiny. Footnotes are included for especially uncommon words (i.e. "quackle"). Be bold. Tackle something that isn't lightweight. Those who love any of the Puritans shouldn't need any encouragement.

    Pages are printed facsimilies of an earlier printing, easily readable, providing a nice atmosphere. Cover and binding are solid. The book looks great, if you care. Seriously hefty. Don't use it as a bookshelf anchor, though... read it!

    Rich language! Recommended for anyone who enjoys the style of the Puritans, Matthew Henry, etc. The beauty of the language has been preserved in this edition. Definitely a must-have for any avid Christian reader. Tremendously insightful and encouraging.

    This book is wrote in the old English language, the print is very small, I have to use visual aid to read it. However, for spiritual growth it is outstanding. I suggest not getting this one volume but getting the three volume instead; the print is larger easier to read.

    This is one of the most incredible books I've ever read. I am so glad to see this one volume, hardcover edition is going to be released. This was a favorite of Charles Spurgeon. He said about it, "Gurnall's work is peerless and priceless; every line is full of wisdom; every sentence is suggestive. The whole book has been preached over scores of times, and is, in our judgement, the best thought-breeder in all our library." Spurgeon's library had more than 12,000 volumes in it. This book is also a favorite of David Wilkerson. I bought it after hearing him mention it in a sermon.
