‘These are the books to return to again and again as old friends. They are also a sacred trust, to pass on to our families, and to recommend to friends. For in these books we have been given light on our path, instruction for our minds, wisdom for our lives, pleasures for our spirit.’ — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON

Book Description

‘Friends have told me that they have discovered books written by some of the Puritans that have been a tremendous help to them! Could you recommend a few classics to me?’

Many Christians ask that question today. Nor are we the first to feel we need someone to guide us. Already in the Puritan period Richard Baxter saw that need — and drew up lists adjusted to finances available. But even his list for the poorest contained around one hundred authors! The Puritan Classics Box Set is more modest in size, certainly, but it presents a single package of attractively produced hardbound editions of some of the most helpful works written in the seventeenth century. All of them came from the ministries of men who were marked by God-centredness, faithfulness to Scripture, and a devotion to pointing people to Christ and maturing them in the faith.

The authors represented here span the years between 1558 (when William Perkins was born) and 1691 (when both Richard Baxter and John Flavel died) — in terms of English history, form the accession of Queen Elizabeth I in 1558 until just after the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688. The all served in pastoral ministry and shared a profound knowledge of Scripture, and had an enviable ability to apply it to the congregations they loved and served.

Here are treasures beyond price that, through the wise investment of our reading and meditation, can make us rich beyond measure. Those who own this box set possess treasure indeed!

  1. John West

    Marvelous set. I have begun at the left and am working my way across. Admittedly, I rearranged a bit to start off with Bunyan then Flavel, but the others are now random… Clear text, nicely formatted pages, each with a place holding ribbon. If you would like a collection that has a nice breadth of authors and is all bound the same this is a great place to start. May the Lord bless your efforts to draw closer to Him by reading these and other men who had insight into our faith, as well as your daily reading of His word.

  2. Ojoje Adeyi

    How closed the Holy writ would have been;
    How domineering would the reing of sin be,
    Had God not raised the puritans, men keen,
    Sharp in divine light, heavenly verity!
