A magazine [is] opened, from whence the Christian is furnished with spiritual arms for the battle, helped on with his armour & taught the use of his weapon, together with the happy issue of the whole war.

Meet the Author

William Gurnall

William Gurnall (1617?1679) pastored in the little town of Lavenham, in the English county of Suffolk. Despite his Puritan leanings, Gurnall signed the Act of Uniformity and agreed to the dictates of the Church of England. Though not ejected from his pulpit as were other non-conformists, his position was not respected on either side of the conflict. His massive treatise on spiritual warfare- The Christian in Complete Armour and two small pieces - The Christians Labor and Reward and The Magistrates Portrait Drawn from the Word - comprise all of Gurnall's known published works.
