Description:

Created by Bill Carson, a Michigan pharmacist, as a spare time hobby, this site aims to make the works of Puritans, Scottish Divines, and other Reformed authors more widely available to the general public. Carson focuses on shorter extracts of "practical, devotional, and experiential works because they are so needed today." True to his purpose, the site is well organized, allowing readers to access works via a table of contents (with new additions noted as such), a site map, a fast index, and a search engine (this last, run via a Java applet, may cause some browsers difficulties). The site is shaped by Carson's contemporary outreach efforts and, no doubt, his taste, and so visitors may be surprised to find, for example, Edwards' "How To Know If You Are A Real Christian" but not "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." Nonetheless, the site is a good place to browse or to send students looking for further writings by the Puritans and Reformed authors, though note that very few American Puritans are represented here. The works are complemented by poetry, biographical and historical information, a Puritan quote of the week, and a brief quiz. The whole site can be downloaded as a .zip file, and Carson has even thought to add downloadable packs of sermons for Palm Pilot users in need of inspiration on the go.
