Reformation Heritage / Soli Deo Gloria Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life

A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life is an exhaustive, groundbreaking treatment of English Puritan teaching on the six major loci of Reformed theology.

Since the late 1950s approximately 700 titles, written by nearly 150 Puritan authors, have been reprinted. Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson catalogued and introduced these works and their authors in their 2006 publication entitled Meet the Puritans. But this was only the beginning.

In A Puritan Theology Joel Beeke is joined by Mark Jones and, building on earlier research, now present an exhaustive examination of English Puritan theology. Covering the treatment by the Puritans of the major facets of Reformed theology, this book outlines, examines, and evaluates the contribution of this potent movement and the particular contributions of its most distinguished theologians such as John Owen, William Perkins, Thomas Manton, Matthew Henry and many others.

As a complete volume, this work-like none before it-gathers together the threads of Puritan teaching and weaves them into a God-glorifying tapestry of theological exposition.

A Puritan Theology addresses Puritan teachings on over fifty areas of doctrine within the loci of theology including:
  • biblical interpretation
  • doctrine of God
  • predestination
  • providence
  • angels
  • sin
  • the covenants
  • the gospel
  • Christ
  • preparation for conversion
  • regeneration
  • coming to Christ
  • justification
  • adoption
  • church government
  • the Sabbath
  • preaching
  • baptism
  • heaven
  • hell
  • and many other subjects!
Well suited for use as a research tool, reference work, or as a textbook on the Puritans-the beauty of this book and indeed of Puritan theology-is that its depth of piety shines through making it a book that many types of people will benefit from.
