A nonconformist, unifier, husband of three deceased wives, victim of religious persecution, and author of what has been collected into six volumes of reprinted Works, John Flavel (c.1630-1691) of Dartmouth, England not only had an immense following during his own lifetime, but deeply influenced those who would set the course as shapers of religion and culture in the generations to follow: Matthew Henry, Increase Mather, John Newton, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, William Wilberforce, Archibald Alexander, and Charles Spurgeon. Flavela€™s influence remained strong until the end of the nineteenth century, whena€”for various reasons presented in this study seek to showa€”historiographical, philosophical, and Christian literature ceased to recognize his life or thought. It has only been within the last decade that scholarly work has begun to uncover this a€˜losta€™ Puritan and see him as a significant resource for understanding life and thought in Stuart England as well as the religious life of the early American colonies. The first book of its kind, John Flavel:Puritan Life and Thought in Stuart England aims to reveal Flavel as both a significant and influential English Puritan as well as present the salient elements of his life and thought.13 Letting the text speak for itself as the inspired Word of God was part and parcel to the Puritan hermeneutic. ... scripture, let the context of that scripture be diligently and throughly [sic] searched; for it is usual with God to set up some light there, to guide us through the obscurity of a particular text. ... Similarly, elsewhere , Flavel provides four rules that help in establishing The Doctrine and Use of Scripture 59.
