J. I. Packer, D. M. Lloyd-Jones, Iain Murray, and Ernest Kevan are among the distinguished contributors to this compilation of papers on a wide range of topics pertaining to Puritan and Reformed teaching, piety, and life. This volume, the first in a series, captures the principles and passion of Puritan belief as presented in the Puritan and Reformed Studies Conferences of 1956-1959.
The twenty-three papers gathered here are, by design, “practical and constructive, not merely academic,” says Packer, and therefore helpful to pastors as well as the whole church. Topics include
- Interpreting Scripture
- Christian experience
- The Lord’s Day
- The life and work of a minister
- Dealing with troubled souls
- The law and the covenants
