    What can you learn from 1662 The compact and attractive Puritan Paperbacks series consists of 46 books covering a variety of topics relating to the Christian life If you ve ever had any interest in Reformation Christianity, Sermons of the great ejection is an easy way to get a taste without being overwhelmed The Puritans are often ridiculed and maligned by people who know little or nothing about them After reading this book, you will have a better idea of whether or not they have anything to What can you learn from 1662 The compact and attractive Puritan Paperbacks series consists of 46 books covering a variety of topics relating to the Christian life If you ve ever had any interest in Reformation Christianity, Sermons of the great ejection is an easy way to get a taste without being overwhelmed The Puritans are often ridiculed and maligned by people who know little or nothing about them After reading this book, you will have a better idea of whether or not they have anything to offer you.Farewell Sunday, 1662On St Bartholomew s Day in August 1662, 2000 ministers were ejected from their pulpits and removed from the Church of England These nonconformist pastors could not agree with one orstate mandated policies required of the Church Some like John Whitlock would not read the mandated common prayer Others like Thomas Brooks refused to administer Baptism and the Lord s Supper indiscriminately to those who were living in visible and flagrant sin All the nonconforming pastors were told they would never again be permitted to pastor their congregations.The seven authors featured in Sermons were all renowned preachers, highly educated and possessed of lively faith They knew the Scriptures in a way which could put most of us to shame These good shepherds loved the work of the ministry, and devoted themselves to teaching their flocks.Read full review

    There could be fewscathing reproofs for modern Christianity than for us to really attend to the words of these men who gave up livings, homes, liberties, goods and sometimes lives rather than surrender any part of the teaching of the word of God This book provides meaty nourishment for the soul, and is particularly relevant for us Christians in the West who are facing an increasingly hostile culture and need to be equipped and encouraged to live well under trials and difficulties.As i There could be fewscathing reproofs for modern Christianity than for us to really attend to the words of these men who gave up livings, homes, liberties, goods and sometimes lives rather than surrender any part of the teaching of the word of God This book provides meaty nourishment for the soul, and is particularly relevant for us Christians in the West who are facing an increasingly hostile culture and need to be equipped and encouraged to live well under trials and difficulties.As is often the case with the Puritan s, these sermons will take a verse, theme or doctrine and examine each facet of it, in a way that shows a great passion for the Lord, and for practical application to personal holiness The fact that these were often the writers last sermons to their congregations before ejection also emphasises the love for their people, and the urgency, that characterised much Puritan writing Well worth your time to read this, as if we could aspire to a fraction of the spiritual stature of these men God would be greatly glorified in the church

    I suppose I have long had an interest in the Pilgrims, that small band of Puritans who braved the wild Atlantic to separate themselves from England to plant a colony where they could worship God according to their Biblically based beliefs I becameinterested in them while teaching 8th grade honors English aligning with the History department to study literature that paralleled the events in their history studies Key to those studies were a brief look at what it was that brought English se I suppose I have long had an interest in the Pilgrims, that small band of Puritans who braved the wild Atlantic to separate themselves from England to plant a colony where they could worship God according to their Biblically based beliefs I becameinterested in them while teaching 8th grade honors English aligning with the History department to study literature that paralleled the events in their history studies Key to those studies were a brief look at what it was that brought English settlers to the New World I ve known for quite some time that I have English ancestry and particularly that my Andrews came to the New World to settle at Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1636 Recently I have also discovered that I probably have an ancestor that crossed the ocean on the Mayflower My Mayflower ancestor would have been a Puritan and Nonconformist My MBC ancestor would have been loyal to the Church of England Only two generations ago did those two lines serendipitously meet.The long and the short of it is that I am increasingly interested in what it was that brought them to America Though the Sermons of the Great Ejection come from 1662, they are the result of a law outlawing nonconformity with the Church of England and tie directly to the Puritan Nonconformists who just 30 years earlier chose a new world and new land where to practice their faith These seven selected sermons along with the Nonconformist s Catechism of 1772 delivered by seven men who counted their faith of greater value than their allegiance to the Church of England and the Crown speak in their own words their courage and faith These sermons truly give life to the struggle of the Puritans and perhaps foresee for us today what may be a similar need to speak counter culturally our faith in Jesus based on a plain reading of Scripture

    Wow This book has sat on my shelf for ages I love the Puritans but how much help can some sermons on a very specific occasion be But there is something so beautiful in the rawness of these sermons.A standout take home for me was that I should fear sinningthan suffering But most of all, this book made me want to be a better pastor I want to have the love and pastoral care these men recommended Highly recommended.

    Excellent book In hindsight, it will be a good introduction to the Puritans The sermons, quite long by today s standards, are short by Puritans writing Also, because these sermons are delivered by the Ministers before they are ejected from the Church of England, they are full of wisdom and contain insights on godly living, faithfulness, repentance, and holding fast.

    Excellent sampling of sermons on such an historic event It would serve well as an introduction to Puritan preaching Thomas Watson stood out as a faithful handler of the Word.
