John Ward (n.d.)Westminster Divine and Fiery Preacher of the Gospel
Today, many Christians are turning back to the puritans to, “walk in the old paths,” of God’s word, and to continue to proclaim old truth that glorifies Jesus Christ. There is no new theology. In our electronic age, more and more people are looking to add electronic books (ePubs, mobi and PDF formats) to their library – books from the Reformers and Puritans – in order to become a “digital puritan” themselves. Take a moment to visit Puritan Publications (click the banner below) to find the biggest selection of rare puritan works updated in modern English in both print form and in multiple electronic forms. There are new books published every month. All proceeds go to support A Puritan’s Mind.
“God is more often proclaimed by Names and Titles that are relative to His providences, and their blessings of it, then by any other way in Scripture.”

Biography of John Ward:
Several persons of this name were eminently pious, learned, and conscientious nonconformists, in England, about the time that our author lived. John Ward, who, in this place, comes under our consideration, was sometime Minister of the gospel, in Ipswich, the capital of Suffolk, in England. He was one of the Assembly of Divines at Westminster, superadded, and said to have constantly attended.
