Book Review – Meet the Puritans

 
JOEL BEEKE AND RANDALL PEDERSON
 
A real labour of love which took the authors around ten years to write! The book gives a brief history of English Puritanism, detailing the important historic facts, biographies of English, Scottish and Dutch puritans, also book reviews of works that have been published over the last fifty years. These men sought to live lives for the glory of there saviour , they had many struggles and lived through turbulent times.
Here follows a review of Andrew Gray:
Regarded as a burning light by thousands who heard him preach, his knowledge of the Christian experience was wonderfully extensive, he knew well the joys and troubles, the helps and hindrances. George Hutcheson spoke of him as a spark from heaven. The Lord gave him remarkable power of probing the conscience, he could make people’s hair stand on end.
A review of his Sermons: Loving Christ and fleeing temptation:
These sermons are comforting to the regenerate, arresting the backslider, inviting the unsaved, and unmasking the hypocrite. Christ all was the beginning, middle and end of all the sermons.
This book has been written in a devotional manner and whets the appetite for you to read many of the fine books mentioned, a real triumph in so many ways.
