Book Description Hendrickson, 2004. Hardbound. Condition: Fine. Dimensions: 140 x 220 x 30 mmWeight: 0.785 kilosPages: 422 Light pencil notes Under threat of imprisonment and death, sixteenth and seventeenth century non-conformist pastors called their churches to right thinking and their people to right living. Day by Day with the English Puritans gleans 366 devotional readings from their sermons, letters, and books. Start your day with exhortations to faith and obedience from such influential Puritan writers and ministers as:* Samuel Annesley - grandfather of John and Charles Wesley* John Rogers - first Puritan to burn at the stake under Queen Mary of England* Robert Bolton - so famous for comforting the afflicted that even those from other countries sought his counsel* John Bunyan'author of the prison-work The Pilgrim's Progress* Thomas Watson - the dynamic preacher who was jailed for plotting to put a Protestant on the throneFor over a century (1560-1710), the English Puritans fought for church and state reform. Although they lost most of their political campaigns, their search for an authentic and biblical ideal for godly living eventually drove the Great Awakening in America and propelled Britain into the Evangelical Revival. In today's uncertain world and materialistic culture their struggles to be holy citizens of heaven and earth continue to resonate, and their words of insight and devotion continue to reform"Few would disagree that the English Puritans represent a high point of evangelical Protestantism. Their unique combination of learning and godliness and their zeal for doctrinal precision while insisting on Christ-centeredness are hallmarks that continue to make their writings relevant." - CBA Marketplace.- Publisher.
