The Digital Puritan - Vol.IV, No.1

Free sample

The Digital Puritan is a quarterly digest of carefully selected Puritan works which have been gently modernised to render the text more readable, while still retaining much of the flavour and character of the original text. Hundreds of helpful notes and Scripture references (in the English Standard Version) are included as end-notes; no internet connection is needed. 

The following articles appear in this spring 2014 edition: 


  1. Why Read the Puritans Today? - Dr. Don Kistler gives ten reasons why time spent reading the Puritans is always profitable.
  2. Private Prayer: A Christian Duty - in which Oliver Heywood expounds upon the necessity of personal prayer time. 
  3. How to Avoid Cherishing a Pet Sin - a treatise by Thomas Brooks that teaches the believer to expose and expunge every rebel lust. 
  4. What Can and Must Persons Do Toward Their Own Conversion? - in which William Greenhill sheds light on a mystery of salvation: it is not of works, yet requires us to act. 
  5. Haman's Vanity - the sermon that Obadiah Sedgwick preached before the House of Commons just days after the discovery of Edmund Waller's dastardly plot to bring down Parliament. First re-printing since 1643.
  6. The Puritans in Verse: A Dialogue of Self-Denial by Richard Baxter.
