Without minimizing the validity of the social, political, and ecclesiastical approaches to this field of study, Yuille affirms that the essence of Puritanism is found in its spirituality. He demonstrates this by turning to a relatively unknown Puritan, George Swinnock (1627-1673). At the root of Swinnock's spirituality was his concept of fear of God as the proper ordering of the soul's faculties after the image of God. This concept is pivotal to Swinnock's spirituality, because he viewed it as the Christian's true principles of practice. Yuille shows the prevalence of this paradigm among Swinnock's fellow Puritans, and sets it in a historical tradition extending back to Augustine through Calvin.

About the Author:

J. Stephen Yuille (PhD, London School of Theology) is the preaching elder at Braidwood Bible Chapel. He is also part-time Professor of Biblical Studies with Toronto Baptist Seminary. He earned his BA from the University of Toronto, his MTS from Toronto Baptist Seminary, and his MDiv from Tyndale Seminary.

Review:

"Trends in theology are often like those in clothing: passionate about the present look, eager to forget the past and all-consuming. But unlike clothing, theology is about eternal verities and should not be governed by passing fancies. The fear of God is one such verity that has been much overlooked by contemporary obscurity and here we are reminded of the importance of this great biblical theme of the fear of the Lord. And once again, past wisdom proves richly instructive for present church life."
-- Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY, USA

"All who see Puritan piety as an integral element in the churchs evangelical heritage will find George Swinnocks teaching, both in his own writings and as set forth here, a rich and reliable resource for practice... For successfully distilling the essence of Swinnock, and fruitfully deploying what he has found, Dr Yuille must be profoundly thanked."
-- James I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC, Canada

"This is the first, and a first class, major study of the spirituality of a forgotten Puritan, George Swinnock. Yuille is to be congratulated on bringing to light the intrinsic connection between the fear of God and sanctification in Swinnocks theology, the former being the logical cause of the latter."
-- Dennis Ngien, Research Professor of Theology, Tyndale Seminary, Toronto, ON, Canada
