Stephen Charnock

The last of the puritan writers Gary Wilkerson shares about, Stephen Charnock wrote a book called Discourses Upon the Existence and Attributes of God. Charnock dives into the character of God, even referencing some you may not hear about in churches today. This book has revolutionized Gary's worship and can do the same for you as well.

More Puritan Writers

There are more Puritan writers Gary Wilkerson highly recommends for your reading: Brooks, Sibbes, Manton, and Owen. These authors share deep theological truths and the good things of God in their books, written hundreds of years ago, that are truths available to you today.

The Puritan Writers

There was a time when David Wilkerson felt dry and considered leaving the ministry. His friend brought him a series of books by the Puritan writers and it refreshed David. God can use these books to take us to greater depths with Him.
