The Works of Richard Sibbes (ed. by Alexander B. Grosart)

Among the most remarkable of the early Puritan leaders was Richard Sibbes (1577-1635), who stands in a line of Puritanism which had a deep interest in pneumatology and piety – running from the Elizabethan preacher Richard Greenham (d.1594) and including men like Thomas Goodwin (d.1680), John Owen (d.1683), and John Howe (d.1705). For this…

A book that changed me: Spiritual Depression – its causes and cure

When I interviewed Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones on local television on 24 May 1973 I asked him which of his many books he considered to be the best. He felt that his series on Romans was his most important but said that he received very many letters about his two volumes on The Sermon on…

A book that changed me: Romans – Exposition of Chapter 5: Assurance

It was in 1985 that both my wife and myself sought the Lord Jesus Christ. We began to worship at Westover Free Church in Broadstairs, Kent. Our ideas of Christianity at that time were naturally somewhat disorganized. A person told me that all the basics of the Christian faith could be found in Paul’s…
