'Large crowds of people often gathered for these expositions. Volume five... is the best compilation of Puritan systematic theology ever written, but unfortunately is often overlooked in Puritan studies.... This six volume set represents Puritan preaching at its best... Puritan pastors treasured the full scope of God's counsel.... (They) stove for... excellence. They also made their sermons practical enough to answer the questions of listeners in a thoroughly scriptural manner.'
- Dr. Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson, Meet the Puritans: With a Guide To Modern Reprints, pp. 637-639.

Puritan Sermons Comment Today I narrated another sermon out of this 6 volume set, a Sermon by William Greenhill. The other two sermons I narrated years ago out of volume 1. But to have this person narrate all of volume 5 is a monumental feat. Today as I was learning about William Greenhill's 5 volume commentary on Ezekiel, I learned that volume 5 is very rare, because of the London Fire most copies were lost. so I did a search to see what volumes are available. This was on books.google, as well as AmazonDOTcom. Then I checked the Puritan Hard Drive and was not disappointed, in fact amazed that the whole commentary was there, in a single volume, 831 pages before the Index. All I can say is though not too many people go looking for such things, those of us who do are a miser in a gold mine when we find such gems. Thanks Again. This was a good day to be full of Christ and His word through the pulpits of pastors who long since have been in heaven.
