''Young, fierce, progressive intellectuals, very fashionable and up-to-date.'' Could C.S. Lewis have been describing the seventeenth-century Puritans? Surprise! The dour modern stereotype is entirely wrong, and Ryken marshalls abundant evidence to prove it. His even-handed portrait points out both the faults and the virtues of Puritanism in its English and American contexts. This readable book is an excellent introduction to the Puritans and their writings. Dr. Ryken allows the Puritans to speak for themselves on topics ranging from "Church and Worship" and "Money" to "Marriage and Sex".
Ryken has written a number of works, most notably How To Read the Bible as Literature. Although the author is a professor of English, Worldly Saints is primarily a work of practical theology and church history. J. I. Packer, that eminent expositor of the Puritans, contributed the foreword to the book, entitled “Why We Need the Puritans,” which is an excellent plea for Puritan study in the church today. Packer argues that the Puritans can provide a wimpish evangelicalism with maturity and balance. Ryken elaborates on Packer’s encouragement and proves Packer to be right.
