Publisher's Description

There is no better introduction to the Puritans than the writings of Richard Sibbes, who is, in many ways, a typical Puritan. “Sibbes never wastes the student's time,” wrote C. H. Spurgeon, “he scatters pearls and diamonds with both hands.”

Since its first publication in 1630, The Bruised Reed has been remarkably fruitful as a source of spiritual help and comfort.

The complete works of Sibbes were published in seven volumes in the Nichol Series between 1862 and 1864, and again by the Banner of Truth Trust, between 1973 and 1982. The present book is taken from the first volume in that series and is the first of Sibbes' writings to be published separately in the present series. Some of the language and punctuation of the earlier edition have been modernized and headings have been introduced with the intention of making the work more accessible to present-day readers.

Sibbes once said to Thomas Goodwin, “Young man, if ever you would do good, you must preach the gospel and the free grace of God in Christ Jesus.” The Bruised Reed shows us how Sibbes himself did this. (From the Foreword)

“I shall never cease to be grateful to . . . Richard Sibbes who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil . . . I found at that time that Richard Sibbes, who was known in London in the early seventeenth century as 'The Heavenly doctor Sibbes' was an unfailing remedy . . . The Bruised Reed . . . quietened, soothed, comforted, encouraged and healed me.”
- D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
