Keeper of the Great Seal of Heaven: Sealing of the Spirit in the Life and Thought of John Flavel
3 in stock
Puritan pastors of the seventeenth century were true physicians of the soul, and this is made readily apparent in Adam Embry's study of John Flavel.
In Keeper of the Great Seal of Heaven, Embry shows the prominent themes of heavenly mindedness and the work of the Holy Spirit in Flavel's life and pastoral ministry. He goes on to evaluate Flavel's teachings about the Spirit, explains Flavel's view on the sealing of the Spirit and compares Flavel with other Puritans.
While this study reveals a diversity of thought within Puritanism, it also underscores the profound commitment this spiritual brotherhood shared for treating the matter of the heart with biblical truth in dependence on the Holy Spirit.
"Loving and reverent reflection on the person and work of the Holy Spirit was at the heart of Puritanism... Any who are interested in the history of Puritan spirituality are very much in Adam Embry's debt for this fine study."?
