The Puritans are remembered for their vast expository on the Bible, their simplification of doctrine and worship, and their passionate preaching. This remarkable collection of classical sermons consists of practical as well as doctrinal discourses, preached by some of the most renowned Puritan ministers of the seventeenth century. Published between 1659 and 1689, over seventy preachers contributed to these historically important volumes, including such luminaries as Thomas Manton,Richard Baxter,John Howe,Mathew Poole,and John Owen. This extraordinary anthology is packed with solid Scriptural exegesis and profound spiritual insight.
Filled with the devotional spirit and energy that Puritan sermons were notorious for, the Puritan Sermons is a window into the English Reformation of the seventeenth century. Advocating their autonomy from Rome, these preachers were among the powerful political force that left the Church of England and condemned the practices of the Catholic Church. Although some of these sermons exude the contentious politics of the day, the sermons contained in these volumes symbolize the powerful and historically significant impact the Puritans had on Christianity and biblical exegesis. This volume contains over twenty-five distinguished sermons, and with Logos Bible Software, all of them are searchable and direct translations from Greek, Hebrew, and Latin are readily available.
