The Genius of Puritanism
"This is an excellent introduction to the Puritans, their writings, and their pastoral work. It examines their role as pastors, counselors, and theologians, as well as private people. The detailed section on spiritual depression is especially helpful."See All

"Lewis provides an excellent foretaste of the rich meal that readers of the works of the Puritans can enjoy. His arrangement of the matter-the brief biographical touches, the judicious selections threaded into a continuing theme, etc.-is brilliant."See All

What can account for the revival of interest in the Puritans today? Perhaps it is that they were strongest where the church today is weakest. As Lewis observes, the Puritans employed themselves in the "great business of godliness," so as to bring a God-exalting and gospel-saturated approach to all things. They were indeed "physicians of the soul" who were strongly characterized by personal piety, sound doctrine, and the pursuit of a well—ordered church life.
