Latest Publications of Note

Previous posts have already called to attention the soon to be published dissertations of Alan Spence and Kelly Kapic on John Owen. Kapic’s book is already out by the way. Dr Hardman Moore has just received a copy. In the latest Paternoster catalogue, three more monographs are noteworthy in the field of Puritan history and theology. All three are published in the Paternoster series, Studies in Christian History and Thought.

1. Garnet H. Milne, The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Cessation of Special Revelation: the Majority Puritan Viewpoint on Whether Extra-Biblical Prophecy is Still Possible (Carlisle: Paternoster, 2007).

2. Crawford Gribben, Puritan Millenialism: Literature and Theology, 1550-1682, Revised Edition (Carlisle: Paternoster, 2007).

3. Brian K. Kay, Trinitarian Spirituality: John Owen and the Doctrine of God in Western Devotion (Carlisle: Paternoster, 2007).

In addition, there is the much anticipated book by Carl Trueman in Ashgate Publications' Great Theologians Series to be out this October. Again, it's on John Owen.

Why do I have this idea that the year 2007 is the year of John Owen? It has been unprecedented in Owen studies to have four scholarly monographs published in a single year.

Perhaps we should change our name to "The cOWENventicle".

I am currently proofreading Gribben's book prior to publication. It will be (and has been in its previous edition) a tremendous resource on the apocalyptic thought of Puritans.
