    You know, that’s interesting. I asked Paul Tripp last year what led him into the direction of counseling. He said that it was the Puritans. Robert K. Rudolph, the former president of Reformed Episcopal Seminary–where both of the Tripps, Jay Adams, and other reformed theologians studied–really loved the Puritans. But, I have been told that Jay does not like the Puritans. It would be interesting for someone to interview Jay to see if this is true, and, if it is, to find out why he doesn’t appreciation their work.

  3. Hi Nick,

    I believe that it is not that Jay does not like the Puritans. He does not agree with their style of preaching. He believes that the puritans destroyed good preaching with their methodology.
