Author:

William Spurstowe (1605-1666) was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. His first pastorate was at Great Hampden in Buckinghamshire, where he was installed in 1638. In 1643 Spurstowe was chosen to attend the Westminster Assembly as a Presbyterian. Spurstowe served the parliament of Richard Cromwell alongside Edward Reynolds, Thomas Manton, and other Puritan ministers. He was also one of the ejected ministers of 1662.

Endorsement:

"William Spurstowe is finally getting some of the recognition that his writings deserve. A pious Presbyterian willing to suffer for his convictions, Spurstowe exhibits in these pages a pleasing sense of humor mixed with a biblical and practical piety. The subject is treated with utmost seriousness, the author with a touch of self-deprecation. Graced with an informative introduction, this carefully edited reprint will bless Christians who wish to better understand the greatness, preciousness, usefulness, and Spirit-worked effects of God's promises to believers." -
