From 1956 to 1969, a group of prominent evangelical scholars including D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, J.I. Packer, and Iain Murray, convened annually to present papers reflecting on the thought, practice, and influence of the Puritans. Editor J.I. Packer notes that the papers are designed to be “practical and constructive, not merely academic,” and helpful to pastors as well as the whole church. This resource contains all 76 studies presented at the conference that played a vital role in reinvigorating evangelicalism in Great Britain and beyond. The Puritan Papers treat an array of subjects from John Owen, Jonathan Edwards, and John Knox; to Puritan approaches to discipline, revival, and worship; to use of catechisms and the work of a minister; to the Arminian conflict and the study of church history.
