One of the Best MP3 Introductions to the Puritans! Dr. Joel Beeke co-authored, along with Randall Pederson, one of the most useful books ever written on the Puritans and their writings, in a book entitled "Meets the Puritans: With A Guide To Modern Reprints." It is must reading for anyone interested in the Puritans and gives short biographies of many of the Puritans on SWRB's Puritan Hard Drive. "Meet the Puritans" also provides lists of the books written by the Puritans covered in this large 900 page book, as well as providing short summaries for each book (many of these books are also found on SWRB's Puritan Hard Drive, in both PDF and MP3 formats). Dr. Beeke's "Meets the Puritans" was "The Shepherd's Scrapbook" book of the year for 2006, see http://snipurl.com/rfyl8. This MP3 is like a highly condensed overview of Dr. Beeke's book, Meet the Puritans -- at least as much as it is possible to condense a 900 page book into a 51 minute lecture. It is a splendid lecture that touches on a number of the most important points made in the book and anyone who is interested in biblical doctrine and practice (in which the Puritans often excelled) will be spiritually enriched by listening to this MP3.
