Contrary to popular opinion, the Puritans were no dour lot. Packer believes there's much we can learn from them about joyous spirituality. Exploring the writings of John Owen, Richard Baxter, Jonathan Edwards, and others, he examines their views on the Bible, Sabbath, spiritual gifts, and more to encourage you to pursue a richer Christian life. In a time of failing vision and decaying values, this powerful portrait of the Puritans is a beacon of hope that calls us to radical commitment and action, both desperately needed today. Beautifully written, A Quest for Godliness is a moving and challenging exploration of Puritan life and thought. Here is J. I. Packer at his very best.
