This book will serve as a great introduction to the writings of the Puritans. As 21st century Christians, we have much to glean from these 17th century brothers and sisters in Christ. Their emphasis on the Word of God and the Christian life is a great aid to us today. From the back of the book:

“The Puritans were greatly concerned with suppressing worldliness in the church. Today, worldliness is an even greater problem, exacerbated by the fact that so few dare to speak out against it. In this book, William Greenhill provides modern readers with a healthy antidote to our love affair with the world. He explains what it means to love the world, exposes the dangers of cherishing it, shares how we ought to related to it, and gives encouraging directions for removing our hearts from it.”
