George Swinnock is one of the easiest of the Puritan authors to read. Long out of print, this republication of his works will be welcomed by all who have an interest in and love for Puritan literature. Thomas Manton commended his work as coming 'from one both of a good head and heart'. C.H. Spurgeon said, "George Swinnock had the gift of illustration largely developed, as his works prove...they served his purpose, and made his teaching attractive...there remains " a rare amount of sanctified wit and wisdom".
