Josiah’s Reformation (Puritan Paperbacks Series)
We all want to so live the Christian life that our remaining years are filled with joy and delight. Too often believers become whiners and complainers the older they get. Here is a biblical way of looking at death that enables Christians, as Sibbes puts it, ‘to be content to put their bodies, life and all, to hazard’.
His father, ‘a good sound-hearted Christian’, at first intended that Richard should follow his own trade as a wheelwright, but the boy s ‘strong inclination to his books, and well-profiting therein’ led to his going up to St John’s College, Cambridge in He was converted around through the powerful ministry of Paul Bayne, the successor of William Perkins in the pulpit of Great St Andrew’s Church.
After earning his B. Later, through the influence of friends, he was chosen to be the preacher at Gray’s Inn, London, and he remained there until He was granted a Doctorate in Divinity inand was thereafter frequently referred to as ‘the heavenly Doctor Sibbes’.
He continued to exercise his ministry at Gray’s Inn, London, and Holy Trinity, Cambridge, until his death on 6 July at the age of Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
Richard Sibbes always sought to get under the superficial layer of his listeners’ behaviour and deal with their hearts.
He knew that the outward acts of sin spring from the inner desires of the heart. Merely to alter a person’s behaviour without dealing with those desires would cultivate hypocrisy, the self-righteous cloak for a cold and vicious heart. Sibbes believed that hearts must be turned, and evil desires eclipsed by stronger ones for Christ. This sibbrs is as relevant today as when it was first published in Our busyness and activism so easily degenerate into a hypocrisy in which we keep up all the appearance of holiness without the heart of it.
Christians even use Christ as a package to pass on to others, instead of enjoying him first and foremost as their own Saviour.
But true reformation must begin in the heart, with love for Christ. And that can only come when the free grace of God in Christ Jesus is preached. fichard

This book is based on four sermons Sibbes preached from 2 Chronicles 34, where he was told by God that rfeormation was heard because his heart was tender and that he had humbled himself before God, grieving for the sins of his people.
Sibbes goes well beyond reforation idea of, “You do bad things, stop doing bad things,” since he realizes that this is a sure-fire way to merely get an outward reformation that leaves the heart in an untouched condition. This book is a true spiritual delight, “soul food” if eichard will, and is well worth reading by every Christian.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book was a surprisingly interesting book. I had not expected the book to be as easy to read, recognising it was written with older English as it says, probably in the ‘seven though i’m used to reading that style of English. Whoever put in the little archaic word dictionary in the text is now my “best friend”, because even with my vocabulary, there were words I had no clue as to their meaning and no specialised dictionary for looking them up the one in Kindle is not up to the task.
Stibbes manages to put his arguments in logical sequence and his explanations for the passages in the Bible are well thought out and presented. What helped was that it has a table of contents in its digital format. It is worth reading, it my ricgard.
