The Summer Edition is Out!

Cover Art 4.2 (1200x1600)The summer edition of The Digital Puritan is now available. It contains the following articles:

  1. Self-Denial – in which Isaac Ambrose expounds Mark 8:34, showing that self-denial must be a cardinal feature of Christ’s true disciples.
  2. The Almost Christian – George Whitefield shows from Acts 26:28 that having the trappings of religion is not the same thing as having true saving faith.
  3. God’s Regard for His Own Glory, Seen in the Saving of Sinners – in which Stephen Charnock illustrates the rich glory of God as can only be seen in his redemption of sinful men.
  4. Charity, in Respect of Other Men’s Sins – John Howe teaches from 1 Corinthians 13:6 that believers should never rejoice over the failings or misfortunes of others, and should be predisposed to grant them the benefit of the doubt.
  5. A Word to the Aged – comforting and insightful teaching from William Bridge for those who have nearly run their course.

Available now for Kindle, Nook, iPad/iPod/iPhoneKobo, Google Play, and through Lulu (most other e-readers). Soon to be released through the Apple iBookstore.

Two New Primary Works Added

Printing PressIn our continuing effort to become the largest, most comprehensive site of Puritan works on the web, we are pleased to announce that Digital Puritan has acquired the facsimiles of two previously unavailable primary sources, which have been added to their author’s respective pages:

  1. The Blessedness of the Death of Those That Die in the Lord, by James Durham. An exposition of Revelation 14:13, in seven sermons. A free PDF.
  2. The Opening of Heaven’s Gates, by Arthur Dent. Also known as “The Ready Way to Everlasting Life”, this work is a catechism of sorts, which provides a rational explanation of the nature of true saving faith. A free PDF.

The Sum of Saving Knowledge
