The Fear of God in the Affective Theology of George Swinnock
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"[H]ere we are reminded of the importance of this great biblical theme of the fear of the Lord. And once again, past wisdom proves richly instructive for present church life."
--Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"This is the first, and a first class, major study of the spirituality of a forgotten Puritan, George Swinnock. Yuille is to be congratulated on bringing to light the intrinsic connection between the fear of God and sanctification in Swinnock's theology, the former being the logical cause of the latter."
--Dennis Ngien, Research Professor of Theology, Tyndale Seminary, Toronto, Canada
"All who see Puritan piety as an integral element in the church's evangelical heritage will find George Swinnock's teaching, both in his own writings and as set forth here, a rich and reliable resource for practice. . . . For successfully deploying what he has found, Dr Yuille must be profoundly thanked."
--James I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada
