'Large crowds of people often gathered for these expositions. Volume five... is the best compilation of Puritan systematic theology ever written, but unfortunately is often overlooked in Puritan studies.... This six volume set represents Puritan preaching at its best... Puritan pastors treasured the full scope of God's counsel.... (They) stove for... excellence. They also made their sermons practical enough to answer the questions of listeners in a thoroughly scriptural manner.'
- Dr. Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson, Meet the Puritans: With a Guide To Modern Reprints, pp. 637-639.
