Book Summary of The Glory of Grace by Lewis Allen & Tim Chester


Who were the Puritans and what did they believe? There are two primary ways one could go about answering that question:

  1. Read what others have said over the years about the Puritans.
  2. Read the Puritans themselves. 

It is this second strategy that Lewis Allen and Tim Chester hope to encourage their readers in as they give excerpts from 11 different Puritan authors, devoting one chapter for each writer.
“We firmly believe that all Christians need to discover the important story of how these men and women sought to follow Jesus Christ. Their convictions resulted in a brave and joyful faith, and the writing they have left us on the Christian life continues to be a rich resource for our own discipleship. Meeting the Puritans by listening to them has enriched both of us more than we can express. And so, in The Glory of Grace, we want to introduce you to people who had a deep love for Jesus Christ and a great vision for the Christian life. We all have much to learn.” (Back cover) 

The Puritans’ love for the Bible, belief that the gospel applied to the whole life, and perseverance in trials is an encouragement to believers today to take their faith seriously. They were not perfect people, but much of what they taught and how they lived is worthy of our contemplation.
