Thanks to men like Don Kistler, previously unavailable Puritan works that have been out of print for many years are readily at hand to us. The benefits of reading the Puritans cannot be expressed! They are incalculable.
Their writings are a very pure source of theology. The style of their writing is characterized by that of beauty, and their element of descriptive language is unparalleled. Every word and thought that is expressed is only that which helps the health of the soul of man and is glorifying to God.
If there are means of grace other than the word of God itself, I say "Here is one!" Indeed their preaching is a wonderful means of grace. Though being dead they yet speak.
No contemporary writings out-shine those of the Puritans. There are only a select few modern-day authors that I will read, and normally they themselves are fans of the Puritans. Read everything you can get your hands on!
