About this title


It is the soul-satisfying contemplation of Christ, as described by the Nonconformist theologian John Owen, that J. Stephen Yuille seeks to expound in 'Looking Unto Jesus'. For assistance, Yuille turns to two lesser known Puritans: Thomas Wilcox and Vavasor Powell, his selection based on the fact that both were Baptists by denomination. The author explores how seventeenth-century Baptist piety and Puritan piety intersect at numerous junctures and makes it one of the book's goals to demonstrate this interconnectedness as it pertains to Christ-centred piety. Yuille gives an edition of Thomas Wilcox’s 'A Guide to Eternal Glory' and analyses Wilcox's Christ-centred piety, focusing on what he says about our need to apply Christ’s blood, seek Christ’s presence, prize Christ’s righteousness, and esteem Christ’s priesthood. He then presents an edition of Vavasor Powell’s 'Saving Faith Discovered in Three Heavenly Conferences' before again analysing the author's Christ-centred piety, focusing on his description of Christ as Shepherd, Judge, and Husband. This new work is an important addition to scholarship on Puritan and Baptist thought, as well as to the ecclesiastical history of the seventeenth century.
