Book Description:

Gurnall's Christian in Complete Armour, certainly one of the greatest of all the Puritans' practical writings, has been many times republished, but the best edition remains that of 1864, with an Introduction by J. C. Ryle. It is this unabridged edition which is now reprinted.

C. H. Spurgeon commented,

'This Complete Armour is beyond all others a preacher's book: I should think that more discourses have been suggested by it than by any other uninspired volume. I have often resorted to it when my own fire has been burning low, and I have seldom failed to find a glowing coal upon Gurnall's hearth. John Newton said that if he might read only one book beside the Bible, he would choose The Christian in Complete Armour, and Richard Cecil was of much the same opinion.'

Author:

William Gurnall was born in 1616, about 100 miles north of London, in a town where his father became mayor. Residents of this part of England were deeply attached to Reformation doctrines. An outstanding scholar, Gurnall attended Emmanuel College, earning multiple degrees, and then began ministering at a church in Suffolk during tumultuous times in English history, including a civil war, the beheading of a king and more. During all the political and religious upheavals, William Gurnall continued to preach about spiritual warfare and published his sermons. William Gurnall books include the three-volume set, The Christian in Complete Armour, and volumes are also available separately: volume 1, 2 and 3. This series has been called one of the greatest of all practical Puritan writings, with John Newton saying that, "If I might read only one book beside the Bible, I would choose The Christian in Complete Armour." Readers can also purchase this classic Puritan work in a single volume Spanish translation.

'If I might read only one book beside the Bible, I would choose The Christian in Complete Armour.'
--JOHN NEWTON

'Gurnall's work is peerless and priceless; every line is full of wisdom; every sentence is suggestive. The whole book has been preached over scores of times, and is, in our judgment, the best thought-breeder in all our library.'
--C.H. SPURGEON

'You will often find in a line and a half some great truth, put so concisely, and yet so fully, that you really marvel how so much thought could be got into so few words.' -
--J.C. RYLE
