For Christ’s Crown: Stories of Puritans and Covenanters (Richard Hannula)

$16.00 $13.50

The word that perhaps best characterizes the Puritans and Covenanters is “faithfulness.” Whether Edward Dering preaching boldly before a fuming Queen Elizabeth, or Sandy Peden evading the king’s men on horse, or Hugh Mackail undergoing the torture of “the Boot” and then execution for his faith, the Puritans’ and Covenanters’ courage and conviction shines as bright as ever today.
In this collection of thirty brief biographies (with seven illustrations), Hannula brings these stories to life, both for young people who should grow up knowing their spiritual ancestors and the heroes of our faith, and for adults who need to make their acquaintance for the first time.
Because of the fierceness with which they were persecuted, many left Britain for America to worship God freely. If we are to truly understand ourselves, our theological heritage, and our current situation, we need to know the stories of these brave and faithful men and women and the legacy they left.

Commendations of For Christ’s Crown:

“From the world of Pilgrim’s Progress comes this heroes’ gallery of brave believers who would suffer for their convictions rather than betray them. Though angled for youth, these vivid vignettes will touch every Christian heart.” –J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
“Richard Hannula’s historical sketches of eminent Christians are a treasure to mine. The brief biographies are engaging, instructive, deeply humbling, and Christ magnifying. Highly recommended.” ¬†–Ian Hamilton, Minister of Cambridge Presbyterian Church, Cambridge, England
“Accurate history… Lively style…This book is a joy to read, and a challenge to faith and obedience.”
–David Calhoun,¬†Professor of Church History Emeritus, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
