A Fine Puritan Season

Posted by
A number of Puritan-related titles have been published recently.

Top of the list (and previously flagged by Gabe) is A Puritan Theology by Joel R. Beeke and Mark Jones.   A cross between a Puritan book of sentences (somewhat analogous to Heppe's Reformed Dogmatics and Schmid's Doctrinal Theology of the Evangelical Lutheran Church) and a topical commentary on Puritan thought, it will be a standard handbook in years to come for pastors, elders and thoughtful Christians everywhere who wish to access the riches of Puritan thinking on the major heads of doctrine.

Christian Focus have just released, in print and for Kindle, Puritan Portraits which collects together a number of essays J. I. Packer wrote as introductions to a series of Puritan classics published by CFP as separate volumes.   I love reading Packer and I especially love reading him on the Puritans, so this book is a gem.

Finally, Jim O'Brien has started New Puritan Press which plans to release Puritan classics with gently modernised English for ease of reading.  Well worth watching over the next few months and years.
