J STEPHEN YUILLE
George Swinnock (1627–1673) was a gifted English Puritan, known for his vivid illustrations of biblical truth. In “Trading and Thriving in Godliness”, J. Stephen Yuille highlights Swinnock’s conviction that godliness is the primary employment of every Christian. Yuille’s introductory essay analyzes the influences on, groundwork for, and expressions of piety in Swinnock’s life and thought. The book also contains fifty selections from Swinnock’s writings, exemplify his teaching on the foundation, door, value, pursuit, nature, means, and motives to godliness.
J. Stephen Yuille (Ph.D., London School of Theology) lives in Peterborough, Ontario, with his wife, Alison, and daughter, Laura. He is the preaching elder at Braidwood Bible Chapel. He is also a part-time Professor of Biblical Studies with Toronto Baptist Seminary.
“Swinnock gives us the essence of Puritanism and J. Stephen Yuille gives us the essence of Swinnock. Here is doctrine and life, vision and devotion, the poetry and the passion of typical Puritan preaching. A first-rate taster of what is available in Swinnock’s Works.” – Peter Lewis
