A superb book for reference and life.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life (Kindle Edition)
The Puritans looked into the scriptures with both great academic and practical insights. We can do no better than consult them and listen to their teachings out of the Bible. With this volume Joel Beeke and Mark Jones have provided us with a very thorough, detailed and well written book. Topics covered include Puritan teaching on The Trinity, Communion with God, Providence, Angels, Demons, Sin, the Covenants, Christology, the Offices of Christ, the Holy Spirit, Justification, Christian Sabbath and much more- (60 chapters in all!)
This book is extremely easy to read but very thought provoking. The Puritans, who understood the Scriptures so well and applied them to their lives so thoroughly, are brought to us in a clear and practical manner. The chapters are well researched with relevant sources quoted and extra notes at the end of each chapter. Since I purchased it i can't put it down! A must for anyone who loves the Puritans and wants to have a comprehensive overview of their teachings or as a great introduction to the teachings of the Puritans. Now one of my top 7 Christian books!
