Puritan Reformed Spirituality

A Practical Theological Study from our Reformed and Puritan Heritage

Spirituality is a subject much on the minds of people today. With its prevailing secularism and materialism, modern culture has failed to satisfy its consumers. The result is a new interest in discovering and nurturing the inward, spiritual dimensions of life.  This book promotes biblical spirituality through a study of the Reformed and Puritan heritage.

“In these pages Dr. Joel Beeke provides us with a first class tour of some of the great sites of Reformed theology and spirituality. Here we meet John Calvin, reformer extraordinaire; then we encounter the learned Dr. William Ames and the insightful Anthony Burgess. Soon we travel north to meet the Scotsmen, John Brown of Haddington, the great Thomas Boston, and the remarkable brothers, Ebenezer and Ralph Erskine.

Predictably, but happily, our guide brings us eventually to The Netherlands, to learn of the influence of Willem Teelllinck and Herman Witsius before being brought back to the New World in the company of the remarkable Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen. But the climax of the tour is not reached until our trusted guide has brought us to the family roots from which all these theologians and pastors came, to the strong foundations of Christian living in justification by faith and sanctification in life, nourished by the power of biblical preaching. Puritan Reformed Spirituality is a tour de force! I hope it will be widely read and enjoyed.”  — Dr. Sinclair Ferguson
