Reseña del editor
A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life offers a groundbreaking treatment of the Puritans' teaching on most major Reformed doctrines, particularly those doctrines in which the Puritans made significant contributions. Since the late 1950s, nearly 150 Puritan authors and 700 Puritan titles have been reprinted and catalogued by Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson in their 2006 collection of mini-biographies and book reviews, titled, Meet the Puritans. However, no work until now has gathered together the threads of their teaching into a unified tapestry of systematic theology. A Puritan Theology, by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones, attempts to do that. The book addresses Puritan teachings on all six loci of theology, covering fifty areas of doctrine. The book explores Puritan teachings on biblical interpretation, God, predestination, providence, angels, sin, the covenants, the gospel, Christ, preparation for conversion, regeneration, coming to Christ, justification, adoption, church government, the Sabbath, preaching, baptism, heaven, hell, and many other topics. It ends with eight chapters that explore Puritan theology in practice. Some chapters highlight the work of a specific theologian such as William Perkins, William Ames, John Owen, Stephen Charnock, or Thomas Goodwin on a specific topic. Other chapters survey various authors on a particular subject. The goal of A Puritan Theology is to increase knowledge in the mind and godliness in the soul. It was written for theologians, historians, pastors, and educated laymen who seek to learn more about Puritan theology.

Cons: As I said above, although the Puritan way of thinking is clearly displayed and summarized as expected, I was hoping to see more quotes. Obviously, anyone can google "Puritan quotes" and will discover precious portions of puritan literature on any given topic; however, I expected quotes from puritans that are not as well known to people, such as myself, who are looking for more than what an outdated website can offer. Also, I understand that this isn't a collection of Puritan sermons, but I also expected more of a devotional feel to it. Mark Jones is excellent at doing this with topics we normally use to get ourselves into debates with non-Reformed fold, or even within the Reformed community, so I expected more of this in this book (especially in the Christology section). Don't misunderstand me: It was definitely devotional-like and systematic at the same time. I only expected a little more reflection in the text.
Pros: It's unlike any other systematic theology book I own or have heard about! It's uniqueness will make this systematic theology book stand out from your collection. The fact that it carries the Puritan way of life and thought throughout every page is enough to read it! It's also an easy read and understandable -- I read the Christology portion to my wife and she, although not a systematic theology type of thinker, understood it, which is a huge for me! So, given that it's a beautiful piece of written-work, unique, easy and an understandable read of Puritan thought on theology, I give this a 5-star.
Again, I know my critique does not mean much, since I haven't read the book in its entirety. I will write a full review for those who are curious once I read the entire book or at least most of it. I do recommend A Puritan Theology - Doctrine For Life to anyone who is interested in being introduced to the Puritans and/or those who are already familiar with them! It's been a work that has pointed me to Christ, our Lord, and meditate on his glorious work and personhood. I hope it's as edifying to you as it has been for my family. :)
