A Puritan Theology

A Puritan Theology

Doctrine for Life.
A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life offers a groundbreaking treatment of the
PuritansÆ teaching on most major Reformed doctrines, particularly those
doctrines in which the Puritans made significant contributions. Since the late
1950s, nearly 150 Puritan authors and 700 Puritan titles have been reprinted
and catalogued by Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson in their 2006 collection of
mini-biographies and book reviews, titled, Meet the Puritans. However, no work
until now has gathered together the threads of their teaching into a unified
tapestry of systematic theology.

A Puritan Theology, by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones, attempts to do that. The book
addresses Puritan teachings on all six loci of theology, covering fifty areas
of doctrine. The book explores Puritan teachings on biblical interpretation,
God, predestination, providence, angels, sin, the covenants, the gospel,
Christ, preparation for conversion, regeneration, coming to Christ,
justification, adoption, church government, the Sabbath, preaching, baptism,
heaven, hell, and many other topics. It ends with eight chapters that explore
Puritan ôtheology in practice.ö Some chapters highlight the work of a specific
theologian such as William Perkins, William Ames, John Owen, Stephen Charnock,
or Thomas Goodwin on a specific topic. Other chapters survey various authors on
a particular subject. The goal of A Puritan Theology is to increase knowledge
in the mind and godliness in the soul. It was written for theologians,
historians, pastors, and educated laymen who seek to learn more about Puritan
For more than half a century primary research on Puritan theologians and " their teaching has been in full swing. Here now is a massive compendium of the
findings, digested into sixty lively chapters. The authorsÆ expository skill
will keep readers on their toes, and the PuritansÆ own concern for godly
living, which runs through everything, will send readers to their knees. This
is a landmark book in every way. - J.I. Packer"
Joel BeekeÆs and Mark Jones's work marks a major milestone in the study of " Puritan and early modern Reformed theology, setting forth in modern scholarly
essays an examination of a full body of seventeenth-century divinity. The work
evidences a significant understanding of the primary texts and an excellent
grasp of the secondary literature, both providing a sound introduction to
Puritan theology and setting aside the myths of a rigid, rationalistic,
monolithic system of thought divorced from Christian life. Perhaps the most
consistent and unifying theme in the book is the profound connection between
faith and practice that, for the Puritans and other early modern Reformed,
grounded the exposition of all doctrine. A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life
will provide a starting point for further study of Puritan thought for years to
come. - Richard A. Muller"
