"A loosely organized reform movement originating during the English Reformation of the sixteenth century. The name came from efforts to 'purify' the Church of England by those who felt that the Reformation had not yet been completed. Eventually the Puritans went on to attempt purification of the self and of society as well."(Mark Noll, "Puritanism", Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, 1984)

"The man who does not know the nature of the Law, cannot know the nature of sin."John Bunyan
"The trouble with people who are not seeking for a Savior, and for salvation, is that they do not understand the nature of sin. It is the peculiar function of the Law to bring such an understanding to a man's mind and conscience. That is why great evangelical preachers 300 year ago in the time of the Puritans, and 200 years ago in the time of Whitefield and others, always engaged in what they called preliminary 'Law' work."Martyn Lloyd-Jones

James Packer wrote an article for the July-Sept (2007) volume of NB News, a magazine for supporters of UCCF. It is reproduced by the Banner of Truth on their website here. The following are some notable quotes from the article:
"All those nick-names of Puritan, Precisian, Hypocrite, &c. with which lewd tongues are wont to load the saints of God, are so many honourable badges of their worthy deportment in the holy path, and resolute standing on the Lord's side."
Robert Bolton (1572-1631)
