Pilgrims, Warriors, and Servants: Puritan Wisdom for Today's Church
Lee Gatiss (Editor)
Description'Puritans', says J I Packer, 'saw themselves as God's pilgrims, travelling home, God's warriors, battling against the world, the flesh, and the devil, and God's servants, under orders to do all the good they could as they went along'. In this fi rst compilation of St. Antholin's Lectures we are brought face to face with those heroes of the past and are encouraged to apply their godly wisdom in our own day. * J.I.Packer: A Man For All Ministries: Richard Baxter 1615-1691 * Geoffrey Cox: The Rediscovery and Renewal of the Local Church: The Puritan Vision * Alister E McGrath: Evangelical Spirituality: Past Glories, Present Hopes, Future Possibilities * Gavin J McGrath: 'But We Preach Christ Crucified': The Cross of Christ in the pastoral theology of John Owen 1616-1683 * Peter Jensen: Using the Shield of Faith: Puritan Attitudes to Combat with Satan * J.
