Thomas Shepard was one of the premier New England divines, and was quoted by Jonathan Edwards more often than anyone else. This book contains "The Sincere Convert," which shows the small number of true believers there really are, and the great difficulty of saving conversion. "The Sound Believer" is a treatise on evangelical conversion demonstrating the work of Christ's Spirit in reconciling a sinner to God. This book also contains a biography of Thomas Shepard.
Shepard was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He became lecturer at Earls Colne in Essex. The infamous Archbishop Laud silensed him for nonconfirmity and forced him out of the country. He arrived in Boston in 1635 and was chosen pastor of the church at Cambridge.
