    I haven’t read all that many of the Puritans, but I do like Edwards if he can be counted as a late Puritan.

    John Owen is one of my favorite Puritans authors and would love to learn about others too. John Bunyan is another one too. I haven’t yet read John Calvin but a blur of whatever short piece on facebook, blog, twitter or Google+. I would love to get one of his books one of these days.

    Looks like most of you favor John Owen as your favorite Puritan author. Besides Owen, who’s your second favorite?

    My favorite that I am familiar with is Richard Baxter because of his practical advice on pastoral visitation and the pastor’s spiritual life. I need to get more familiar with the other Puritans though
