An Online Puritan Reading List

19 12 2011

This list was principally composed by Adam Townsend.  Adam is a really fine young man and good soldier of Jesus Christ.  Below is a list of puritan works that you can find online.  If you can get over the false caricature of the puritans and spend some time in these books, you will find their faith had far more joy, pleasure, and delight in it than much modern Christianity.  I’ve read many of these over the past few months and they have brought an enormous amount of joy into my life.  Take some time and read one or two.  You won’t be sorry you did!
