Here is a novel way to increase your Puritan intake. Take Richard Sibbs, mix in Mark Dever, and your have the “Reading Sibbs Aloud Project.”
The Reading Sibbes Aloud Project provides a growing collection of sermons of the Puritan Richard Sibbes. The great value of Puritan writing continues to be its depth of scriptural insight and timeless application. Please join Mark Dever as he reads through the works of the “Prince of the Puritans” Richard Sibbes.

I recently spent a few full days traveling by car and passed the time listening to numerous messages by Michael Reeves on church history. Reeves is an excellent teacher and his Church history series will give you an excellent grasp on the crucial figures, issues and writings of the past 2000 years, from Iraneaus and Justin Martyr to Luther, Calvin and the Puritans.
Reeves approach is to break down his talks into particular focuses. First he will talk about the life and historical background of say Thomas Aquinas, and then he will look at Aquinas’ theology by examining his major writings and why they were written.
Reeves looks at the following men of Church history: Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Athanasius, Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, Augustine, Martin Luther, Zwingli, & John Calvin.
I highly recommend this series as it helps us to see weaknesses in our present day theology. It’s not easily organized, so you have to poke around the Theology Network site to locate all of Reeves audio messages on Church history.
