About "Puritan Reformed Spirituality"
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 have travelled 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 brigs us to The Netherlands and to the time of the Nadere Reformatie, before being brought back to the New World in the company of the remarkable Theodorus Jacobus Freylinghuysen. But the climax of this 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.
