“The Puritans loved, lived, and breathed Holy Scripture. They relished the power of the Spirit that accompanied the Word. Their books are all Word-centered; more than 90 percent of their writings are repackaged sermons that are rich with scriptural exposition. The Puritan writers truly believed in the sufficiency of Scripture for life and godliness.
“If you read the Puritans regularly, their Bible-centeredness will become contagious. These writings will show you how to yield wholehearted allegiance to the Bible’s message. Like the Puritans, you will become a believer of the living Book, echoing the truth of John Flavel, who said, ‘The Scriptures teach us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying.’” – Joel Beeke, Why You Should Read the Puritans.
To benefit from this wonderful treasure trove of writings, we have two groups that meet once a month:
Christian Growth Group – meets on the first Sunday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at the church. We are currently going through John Wall’s None But Christ. We will be discussing chapters 32-33 on November 7, 2021.
Christian Classics Club – meets on the third Sunday of each month at 3:00 p.m. at the church. We are currently going through Wilhelmus a’Brakel’s four volume work, The Christian’s Reasonable Service. We have recently finished Volume Two and will begin reading Volume Three in the new year. Stay tuned for when we will start up again to discuss 3:3-23.
