One of the greatest puritan writers and theologians of the last millennium is now available - this is the first work of six that Puritan Publications is placing back into print.

God’s Afflicting Providence, and Other Works, by Francis Roberts (1609-1675)

Francis Roberts (1609-1675), was a Presbyterian and Reformed Calvinistic Puritan. He was an eminent theologian in his day and widely known for his theological works.

In these works, Francis Roberts is at his best. They demonstrate three topics covering the sanctification of the Christian in the providence of God, the Christian’s contrite and humble spirit, and the advantage of the Christian in both life and death. These are some of the best works on these biblical subjects ever written in print, and Roberts handles them with pastoral sensitivity and theological accuracy.

He shows, in the first part, that God’s dearest people may for a long time walk in darkness, yet at last the light of refreshing consolation shall shine on them (from Psalm 68:13). In the second work, he covers the singular gratefulness of true broken-heartedness for sin (from Psalm 51:17). In the third work, he covers the idea that those who are in Christ Jesus have life as theirs and death as theirs (from 1 Cor. 3:21-23).

It is impossible to say that this book is worth the cost of just one of these sections alone since all three are so powerful and helpful that the Christian will not walk away from them unchanged. Roberts is a “must-read” puritan and these works are examples of some of his best writings.
