This pack of Meet the Puritans and a A Puritan Theology provides an exhaustive resource to the lives, thought, and modern publications of the most influential members of the Puritan tradition.
Meet the Puritans is the only comprehensive guide to the lives and works of more than 120 Puritan authors, leaders, and theologians.
Each Puritan receives a biographical vignette that is comprehensive in scope, but which emphasizes their major contributions to the movement. Each biography varies in length according to the contributions of each person; some are as short as one-two pages while others are well over 20 pages.
Accompanying the biographies are brief synopses of each author's work and the historical provenance and significance of each is explained. The biographies reflect the basic facts of each life, and problematic areas are not glossed over. Moreover, for each Puritan work, bibliographic information is provided and lists the most recent edition or (in the opinion of the authors of Mee the Puritans) the best edition of the work still in print today.
Thus, Meet the Puritans truly provide an introduction both to every major Puritan, but also a handy bibliographic reference to their works.
In A Puritan Theology Joel Beeke is joined by Mark Jones and, building on earlier research, now present an exhaustive examination of English Puritan theology. Covering the treatment by the Puritans of the major facets of Reformed theology, this book outlines, examines, and evaluates the contribution of this potent movement and the particular contributions of its most distinguished theologians such as John Owen, William Perkins, Thomas Manton, Matthew Henry and many others.
As a complete volume, this work-like none before it-gathers together the threads of Puritan teaching and weaves them into a God-glorifying tapestry of theological exposition.
