The Puritans...

Author: TheRobinsons /

Just a plug today for something close to my heart. A challenge is given by Timmy Brister at Provocations and Pantings Blog for us to get acquainted with the Puritans. Following is a synopsis of his challenge and the reasonings.

His reasoning:
1. The Puritans had a relentless pursuit of God.
2. The Puritans were physicians of souls.
3. The Puritans possessed genuine piety because they knew how to fight the fight of faith.
4. The Puritans were pacesetters in church history.
5. Reading the Puritans will provide you a healthy perspective so as to prevent chronological snobbery.

His plan:
1. Get a copy of The Valley of Vision and meditate on the prayers as part of your daily devotions.
2. Commit to reading one Puritan Paperback a month - Check out Puritans, We Greet Thee in 2008 because he has specific books for specific months
3. Read about the lives and stories of the Puritans - Again, Timmy has specific books that he's recommending; check them out.
