Description

A Sure Guide to Heaven

A book designed to revive believers in their concern for evangelism. Describes mistakes about conversion, the nature of true conversion, the necessity of conversion, the marks of the unconverted, their miseries, directives to them and motives to conversion.

When the spiritual history of the Western World in the 20th century is written, it may well be seen as the epoch of spiritual sloth and slumber. Eternal realities seemed vaguely-defined and far-removed from daily life, and conformity to the world took the form of carelessness and neglect of spiritual issues. Written by a servant of God whose preaching and writing were used to alarm and awaken many to the concerns of life and death.

This book was previously published by the title An Alarm to the Unconverted.

About the Author

Joseph Alleine (1634-1668) was born at Wiltshire and ‘set forth in the Christian race’ at age eleven. Alleine was educated at Oxford beginning in 1649 under men such as John Owen and Thomas Goodwin.  He earned his BA by 1651 and became a tutor and subsequently chaplain to the College.

In 1655 Alleine accepted an invitation to become assistant to George Newton, vicar in Taunton, Somerset. In the same year he married his wife Theodosia. His ministry in Taunton was very fruitful until his ejection in 1662, but he continued to preach at every opportunity. His health was affected by the privations of two confinements in prison, and he died at 34.

“If you’re interested in Puritan evangelism, or just evangelism for that matter, this is one book that you have to read. Alleine’s Alarm is Puritan evangelism at its best. He is the cream of the Puritan evangelistic crop.” — Jonathan Bunnett
