James T. O’Brien is a PCA minister who has started a publishing company called New Puritan Press. They specialize in translating and modernizing lesser known works by the Puritans and selling them in eBook format. These are books you can’t find for free online – unless you read latin, that is. O’Brien made this announcement earlier today:
“We are celebrating the launch of our e-publishing ministry, New Puritan Press. Our mission is to translate classic works by Puritans and other Reformed authors into 21st century English, so that God’s people can profit from them again. To celebrate we are offering a wonderful and rare book, John Preston’s The Fullness of Christ, (an exposition of John 1:14) for free today through Thursday only.”
Here is a description about the book:
“The glory of Christianity is Jesus Christ.
He is the One in whom we have come to delight. He has been appointed by God to do for us what we could not do for ourselves. Everything we need for this life and the life to come is found in him.
In this book, The Fullness of Christ, John Preston teaches us to see Christ as all-sufficient. He opens up three great truths:
- There is a fullness given to Christ;
- This fullness is not locked away for his use alone, but runs over for our benefit and use;
- The benefits we receive are many, which are implied in the phrase: “grace for grace.”
In typical Puritan fashion, Preston’s work is full of truth made practical for daily living.”
