The Puritans, though often caricatured in modern days as narrow, gloomy and austere, were those whose high view of the Word of God distinguished them as serious students of the Scriptures.
Their preaching was marked by careful exegesis of the great themes of the Bible and the practical application of these doctrines to the life of their hearers. Men like John Owen, William Gough, Thomas Watson, John Flavel, Richard Sibbes, and many others, were used of God to powerfully preach the riches of the Messianic work of Christ, the new birth, repentance, justification, sanctification, assurance, and many other themes.
In this volume, Dr. Di Gangi brings together the words of these preachers on the great themes of the Word with the hopes that it might be used to revive in our churches a love for the truth and a desire to see the Scriptures faithfully preached and applied.
