“Meet the Puritans” is a remarkable portrait gallery and a wonderful library of biographies. It is a reader's guide to great Christian literature and a record of an international movement of the Spirit. It is also a personal tutorial in Puritan history and theology, and much more.
The revival in interest and commitment to the truths of Reformed Theology over the last fifty years is due largely to the rediscovery of Puritan literature. “Meet the Puritans” introduces the leading figures of the Puritan movement in England, Scotland, Holland and America, with brief biographies and extracts from their works. All that you ever needed to know about the Puritans and Puritanism has come from the pens of these two distinguished scholars, Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson, who have given their lives to making the Puritan men and their works known and accessible to this present generation. Their work has been painstaking, thorough and comprehensive – a splendid achievement!
