Meet the PuritansPosted: September 3, 2009
Wanted to make known that one of my seminary brothers Danny Hyde has joined up with Mark Jones and Rowland Ward on a new blog called, “Meet the Puritans.”
“The purpose of this website is to promote the seventeenth century English Puritans. We intend to do this by means of original research, theological and devotional commentary upon the writings of the Puritans, reviews of books about the Puritans, recommendations of books about the Puritans, and by providing Recommended Reading of helpful materials in your study of the Puritans.”
From their welcome,
“Welcome to Meet the Puritans! This website is a collaborative effort. You can read about the contributors in the Author Profiles page at the top left of the home page.

We intend to do this by means of original research, theological and devotional commentary upon the writings of the Puritans, reviews of books about the Puritans, recommendations of books about the Puritans, and by providing Recommended Reading of helpful materials in your study of the Puritans.
You’ll notice just below the header image on the home page several categories. These are intended to give you a quick reference to posts we’ve made concerning book reviews, the Puritan’s doctrine as well use of that doctrine, and our favorite Puritans most of all, John Owen, Thomas Goodwin, andThomas Manton.”
Books by Daniel Hyde:
While a Reformed understanding of God’s sovereignty is becoming more acceptable among evangelicals, many people still struggle to accept infant baptism as legitimate practice of the church. Much of this resistance is due to a misunderstanding of the Reformed position, as well as a different perspective on the biblical views of God’s covenantal relations with families. In this book, Daniel R. Hyde provides a helpful assessment of infant baptism, arguing cogently for its validity while remaining sympathetic to skeptical readers.
The Belgic Confession contains doctrine that is worth dying for, as its author and many adherents learned all too well. Opponents of the Belgic Confession have put its adherents to death because, through this powerful document, the church speaks its prophetic biblical message to the world in which it exists. Yet because this confession of faith has been neglected far too long in the Reformed churches, author Daniel Hyde offers a necessary, fresh exposition and application of its doctrine in the twenty-first century, with the hope of setting the Reformed churches on fire for their historic Christian, Protestant, and Reformed faith in the midst of a cold and lifeless world.
While man has universally and perpetually desired the visual in his relationship with God, God has given His people the Word and sacraments as manifestations of His presence until Christ comes again, visibly and corporeally—in living color. This is the classic Reformed exegesis of Scripture as expressed in its confessions. Forward by Joel R. Beeke.
JESUS. The name means so many things to so many people. This book has as its aim to know Jesus. In order to know Him experientially and personally we must know what the Bible says about Him. To come to this knowledge we must delve into the holy mysteries of the Word of God and the historic Christian faith. Whether you are a skeptic, an agnostic, an inquirer, or a convinced Christian, this book is meant to cause you to consider the mysteries that Jesus claimed of Himself that you too might join the cloud of witnesses that no man can number, confessing the name of Jesus—“God with us.”
