1) The Bruised Reed (Puritan Paperbacks)
The Bruised Reed was written by Richard Sibbes – one of the most influential ministers in the Puritan movement during the early seventeenth century. This timeless classic provides a rare, in-depth look at what it is to be a bruised reed and God’s kind remedies. This illustrated version of the classic features beautiful artwork and concise chapters.
2) Overcoming Sin and Temptation (Redesign)
The late Puritan John Owen offers Overcoming Sin and Temptation (via editors Justin Taylor and Kelly Kapic). Containing three treatises on temptation, sin, and repentance, this book is in-depth, scholarly and dense. However, the messages are timeless and well worth the read. This particular edition is very helpful with its explanatory footnotes of old English words.
3) Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices
Non-conformist Puritan preacher and Christian author Thomas Brooks wrote Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices in the middle of the 17th century. This classic read uses the scriptures tell Christians how to avoid paths that could lead to Satan. This book is timeless and truthful despite the use of Olde English. The systematic breakdown of Satan’s methods and the ways in which Christians can combat them, makes this book a great study tool.
4) The Rare Jewel Of Christian Contentment
The Rare Jewel Of Christian Contentment is a classic work on Christian contentment by Puritan Jeremiah Burroughs. Burroughs believed that the heart of practical divinity is, by God’s grace, learning to be content in whatever condition we find ourselves. This is a timeless, important read.
5) All Things for Good (Puritan Paperbacks)
All Things for Good was written by 17th century minister Thomas Watson. This timeless classic provides the biblical answer to the timeless question; “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Unlike many Puritan writers, Watson is accessible and easy to understand while providing profound thinking that is anchored to scripture.
