Endorsements

“William Perkins was known in his own time not only as a significant theologian but also as a powerful preacher. Until now, however, Perkins’s preaching has not been accessible except in the form of commentaries and treatises posthumously edited for publication. Matthew Payne and Stephen Yuille provide a transcription of Perkins’s unpublished sermons, some of which were edited and published, others never before published. Taken together with their perspicuous introduction on the posthumous collecting and editing of Perkins’s works for publication, this volume opens a highly significant new door to Perkins studies and to the kind of editorial work that went into the posthumous editions of Perkins’s works.” —Richard A. Muller, senior fellow, Junius Institute for Digital Reformation Research

“Many people are familiar with William Perkins the theologian, but how many know Perkins the preacher? Matthew Payne and Stephen Yuille have mined the archives and produced a trove of long-lost sermons by the eminent Puritan divine. Payne and Yuille expertly introduce these gems and present them so that we too can profit from one of sixteenth-century England’s greatest theologians and preachers.” —J. V. Fesko, Harriet Barbour Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

“Payne and Yuille have provided a valuable service for those who study William Perkins (1558–1602). The authors have uncovered new documents, manuscripts, and sermons; made new translations; and have expanded our understanding of the great English theologian by supplementing the published sources that have been read for centuries. This volume is an excellent and important complement to the recent new edition of Perkins’s Works. Now we can gain an even fuller picture of the thought and work of this key theologian who was so important to English and American Puritans and who produced a sturdy Reformed theology that endures, joining doctrine and life to the glory of God!” —Donald K. McKim, author of Ramism in William Perkins’ Theology and Everyday Prayer with the Puritans
