Richard Sibbes wrote extensively on the relationship between suffering and sin and on the suffering of Christ. Volume one of this collection contains numerous works on these topics, including The Bruised Reed—the work for which Sibbes is best known. He also writes about the place of saints and the nature of those whom God loves and has called. Sibbes is well-positioned to speak of suffering and of those in the church’s history who have suffered, given his history of writing from within a shifting and often dangerous political climate. Volume one also includes a lengthy biography of Richard Sibbes, written by Alexander Balloch Grosart.
In the Logos edition, The Works of Richard Sibbes is completely searchable and more accessible than ever. Key theological terms link to dictionaries and encyclopedias, and Scripture references are linked to your Greek New Testament or your favorite English translations. The Works of Richard Sibbes will benefit pastors, theologians, laypeople, and anyone interested in Reformed theology in general and Puritan thought in particular.
