Until recent months it has been taken for granted that few, if any, of the letters of the great nonconformist leader existed. Mr. Toon has discovered more than one hundred original letters, hitherto unknown—including original correspondence with Oliver Cromwell—which are here reprinted for the first time, with a scholarly introduction. This is an important piece of historical research; it should be essential reading for all students of the Commonwealth, period.

John Owen (1616-1683) and Richard Baxter (1615-1691) were both pivotal figures in shaping the nonconformist landscape of Restoration England. Yet despite having much in common, they found themselves taking opposite sides in several important debates, and their relationship was marked by acute strain and mutual dislike. By comparing and contrasting the parallel careers of these two men, this book not only distils the essence of their differing theology, it also offers a broader understanding of the formation of English nonconformity. Placing these two figures in the context of earlier events, experience and differences, it argues that Restoration nonconformity was hampered by their strained personal relationship, which had its roots in their contrasting experiences of the English Civil War. This study thus contributes to historiography that explores the continuities across seventeenth-century England, rather than seeing a divide at 1660. It illustrates the way in which personality and experience shaped the development of wider movements.

Author: John Owen
Publisher: Moody Publishers
The Glory of Christ is a book designed to declare part of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is revealed in the Scripture and proposed as the central object of our faith, love, delight, and admiration. The knowledge of Christ and His glory, John Owen says, is to be preferred above all other wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Why is it to be preferred? Why should we become engaged in a study of the glory of Christ? The author answers the question well when he writes, "For if our future blessedness shall consist in being where He is and beholding His glory, what better preparation can there be for it than a constant previous contemplation of that glory as revealed in the gospel, that by a view of it we may be gradually transformed into the same glory?

The Puritans are often accused of being weak on Christology. In this revision of his doctoral dissertation for Westminster Theological Seminary, Richard Daniels shows how wrong that assessment is. He plumbs the depths of John Owen's views on Christ, covering His person, natures, offices, and states. Dr. Daniels also relates how Owen taught that believers can have personal communion with Christ. This is a masterful work that will be deeply appreciated by readers who love both the Puritans and their theology. ~ Joel R.

Author: Frederick Roth Webber
F. R. Webber's three-volume History of Preaching in Britain and America not only traces the various eras of the rise and fall of preaching in the English-speaking countries, but it strives in particular to illuminate a fact which is well-known to any student of church history: that poor preaching is inevitably followed by a great period of religious stagnation, while the preaching of evangelical truth results in spiritual life. Mr. Webber presents the lives and the sermons of the famous preachers of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Ireland, England and America, depicting their manner and style of preaching, and tracing the recurrent cycles of spiritual decay and revival in these countries. The 3 volumes of his History of Preaching are punctuated with dramatic episodes from the lives of more than 800 famous princes of the pulpit. Their doctrinal position is set forth, including their attititde toward such doctrines as Verbal Inspiration and Justification, and toward such evil fads as Evolution, Higher Criticism, Rationalism, and Modernism.
