    This is part of a book review I wrote for both Knowing God and Quest for Godliness I have tried to save the 5 stars for truly outstanding books I encourage you to read this.In Dr Packer s A Quest for Godliness, he first goes through the rich history of the Puritans He then writes about the Puritans and their views on Christian foundations the Bible, the Gospel, the Holy Spirit, etc and how the depth of their works and life should be used today Our readings for this book focused a lot on Richard Baxter, John Owens, and Jonathan Edwards, men to whom we are greatly indebted to for their great spiritual impact in both their day and today.Critique These books were both excellent, however, I would highly admonish all to read A Quest for Godliness While Dr Packer writes about major parts of the Christian faith in Knowing God, his narrative of the Puritans as well as his summaries and practical insights on their lives was incredible His expertise and knowledge on the Puritans is astounding The book is well written, and thick with insights It is a book that needs to be carefully read and thought through At times I do think he paints an idealistic view of the Puritans, especially early on, but in the end, y...

    But in seeking to honor and please God by the methodical holiness of mortifying sin, vivifying habits of grace, keeping the Sabbath, governing one s family, mastering the Bible, working hard in one s calling, practicing purity, justice, and philanthropy in all relationships, and keeping up communion with God by regular, constant prayer, Puritans were all at one, and all the so because these were the things that their preachers most stressed This sentence embodies the life of the English Puritans Packer compares them often to the huge Redwood trees of California, the trees that are not handsome in any conventional sense, but have very straight, strong, solid trunks Such were the Puritans And oh how important they are for us today.Packer covers well, as the title suggest, the basics of the Puritan view of the Christian life How they worshipped, how they preached, how they read the Scriptures The day to day practices of husbands and wives and the catechizing of children The observance and feasting on the Lord s Day or Christian Sabbath All of which we, the modern church, have much to learn from He also takes some time to dive into the lives and thoughts of some of the history s giants John Owen, Richard Baxter, etc..To say this work by Packer was a help to me is an understatement It was like a companion Maybe because hardly any book has ever taken me so long to read It came to a point where I didn t care how long it took to read it, I wanted to wade through this...

    Often times the subject of spirituality has Protestants turning to Catholic and Anabaptist mystics What a shame Protestants have a rich heritage of heart felt spirituality that avoids the errors and excess of the mystics We have the Puritans T...

    A solid treatment of the Puritan life Before I read this book I thought that Puritans were backwards and strange, but I have come to fully appreciate their zeal for gospel ministry They have actually become my personal heroes, and I...

    Packer does a great job in explaining how the Puritans viewed life, and how they lived it This is a must read for those who love the Puritans and want to imitate and we all should Scripture teaches us our duty Its instruction is for practice It must be studied, therefore, for the purpose of setting our lives in order And God will only prosper our study if we continually exercise ourselves to live by what we learn Then our knowledge will deepen and expand but otherwise it will run out into sterile verbiage and mental error The realism of their affirmations of matrimonial affection stemmed from the fact that they went to the Bible for their understanding of t...

    Loved this book Love the Puritans For all those who think they were stuffy Christians who just told people what not to do, should read this book They were the cool, young christians of their day except they held theology and the discipline in the Christian life as something exciting and no...

    This is a book that I would encourage anyone who is even remotely interested in theology to read It is basically a history of the Puritans, told in a devotional and encouraging style than a simple history book Packer s chapter on John Owen s The Death ...

    One of the first reformed books I read I am not the neo Puritan I used to be, but this book is important to me if for no other reason than nostalgic ones.It s probably best known for Packer s famous essay on Owen s Death of Death I do not hold to Limited Atonement, but this essay and...
