Committed to hard work, humility, and serious study of Scripture, the Puritans lived out their faith in a way that many now dismiss as antiquated. But in an increasingly fast-paced, materialistic culture, Christ followers today can learn a lot from these spiritual giants of the past.
In A Quest for Godliness, J. I. Packer thoughtfully surveys the life of the Puritans, their influence in church history, and their important virtues that modern-day believers can emulate. Exploring the works of Puritan leaders including John Owen, Richard Baxter, and Jonathan Edwards, Packer uncovers the beauty of their holistic, Christ-centered lifestyle—from vibrant worship, devotion to family, and strong sense of humanity, to their social action, evangelism, and revival. This classic book helps readers appreciate the enduring relevance of Puritan devotion.
