Puritan Heroes recounts the stories of twenty-one people who continued to carry forth the ideas of the Reformation in England and New England.

Chapters include a narrative story from the person's life and an informative biographical overview sprinkled with full-color photos of places, buildings, historic artwork, portraits, and pamphlets. An introduction to the Puritans, a closing chapter on what we can learn from the Puritans, a glossary, timeline, and chapter-by-chapter study questions are also included. 207 glossy pages, hardcover.

The Puritan movement began in England during the sixteenth century and continued all the way into the early eighteenth century. Although the Church of England was formed as a result of the Reformation, the Puritans believed it needed much more reform. Puritan Heroes is a beautifully illustrated book that gives the reader an idea of what the Puritan movement was about and offers a glimpse into the lives of more than twenty of its most well-known leaders (among them William Perkins, Richard Sibbes, Thomas Goodwin, Anne Bradstreet, and Jonathan Edwards).
The book concludes with ten important lessons readers can learn from the Puritans and study questions to help them retain these fascinating stories and assist them in applying the lessons to their lives. It also features a bibliography to encourage further study in greater depth, as well as a glossary and timeline to help readers understand historical context. Written for children and young people, it will prove a suitable introduction to the Puritans for adults as well.
