A great, great book. Well worth buying. If you love the Puritans you will love this. These people know God. If you are hungry for a true connection to God you will love this. Get away from the modern gospel preached in most of the churches today. Run for your lives and read a book like this. Your eyes will be opened. Your spirits will sing. This book teaches you the truth. The authors have done a wonderful job. There are over a thousand pages, comprising 8 major sections, 60 chapters, a huge index and thorough works referenced list. I quote from one of the many learned, scholarly, professors recommending this book: "This massive volume ...provides the reader with a comprehensive introduction to Puritan thought. It is a notable work....This book will interest a wide audience....At the same time, it shows the modern reader that in Puritan theology rational activity is embedded in a scripturally deep spiritual receptivity that we rarely find in modern theology. Indeed, Puritan theology is doctrine for life!"
