THE BRUISED REED (PURITAN PAPERBACKS) by Richard Sibbes

WHY I LIKE IT
Every Sunday, I like to read Puritan authors and I just finished this one a few weeks ago. My favorite thing about reading Puritans is their ability to use imagery to convey a concept: "Conscience is a tender and delicate thing, and must be so treated. It is like a lock: if its working are faulty, it will be troublesome to open."

This book which is a meditation on Matthew 12:18-20 and Isaiah 42:1-3 is a masterful explanation of the way Christ tenderly cares for his Christians.
Richard Sibbes (1577-1635), one of the most influential figures in the Puritan movement during the earlier years of the seventeenth century, was renowned for the rich quality of his ministry. 'The Bruised Reed' shows why he was known among his contemporaries as 'the sweet dropper'.

'The Bruised Reed' is now issued for the first time in a smaller format in the Puritan Paperbacks series. Some of the language and punctuation have been modernized to make the work more accessible.
