Puritan Portraits by J. I. PackerCaleb Nelson reviews Puritan Portraits for World Magazine – We’ve been very blessed by the recent reviews we’ve received for J. I. Packer’s latest book Puritan Portraits. Here’s an excerpt from Caleb Nelson’s review that appeared last week in’s Virtual Voices:

“If you need to know what repentance is and how to do it, or if you find yourself dealing with a sin that just will not go away, then Puritan Portraits has advice for you. Packer’s purpose is obvious: He not only wants readers to know about the Puritans and get a few good quotes, he also wants his readers to put down Puritan Portraits and pick up the original works of these godly men.”
