Who is Brandon Phillips?
Probably what you have heard……though I am not the baseball player! Professionally, I am a custom cabinet and furniture maker. By now you are probably beginning to understand why Woodshop is in the title of the blog. The reason for Puritan’s in the title, as you will see, is because we will principally focus on Puritan reformed literature, with a few exceptions.
Also, I am a sinner. I have proven it over and over again. And God has proven Himself gracious and merciful to me, a sinner. I will not go into specifics here about my sins because I do not want to glorify them. But know that “I am a great sinner and Christ is a great Saviour.” (-John Newton) Sin should only be considered in that it points us to a Saviour, and in that consideration we should be humbled and exult all the more in Christ.
This is why I read the Puritans and those like them. There is more piety, Christ centered contemplation, and God glorified thinking in their writings than any other writings, save The Word of God, that I have ever come across before. I am encouraged by them and I hope, God willing, that you may find some encouragement in what you read here as well.
