This workbook has been designed to supplement the 35 video lessons on Puritan: All of Life to the Glory of God and is useful in a number of different contexts, including personal devotions, homeschooling, study groups, and Sunday School. Each chapter focuses on a particular lesson and is divided into five sections:
Meditate – Here you will find a Puritan quotation along with a pertinent passage of Scripture for meditation. Take a few minutes to prayerfully ponder the passage in this section and record any thoughts or applications that come to mind.
Learn – This section contains material on the subject covered in the video lesson. Some of this will be review from the lesson, but will also contain supplementary material to further whet your appetite for these rich themes.
Reflect – We have provided questions here for personal reflection and examination. This section is intended to help you digest the lesson material and apply it to your soul and life. We are after what the Puritans called “experiential religion.”
Discuss – Next are questions for group discussion, though they can also be used for personal study. This section aims to be less soul searching and more theological and practical, helping you think through the lesson material in its application to the church today.
Read – In this final section you will find a brief bibliography with some of the most helpful primary and secondary sources to pursue for further study. The goal of these lessons is not to be ends in themselves, but means to get you to read the Puritans for yourself, if you are not doing so already.
May these lessons will be used to ignite within you a passion for the triune God whom the Puritans delighted in proclaiming.
