Jenny-Lyn de Klerk
As Puritan Project Assistant, Jenny-Lyn works on acquiring rare books, preserving the current collections, and looking for ways to make them useful for patrons. After reading John Owen's Mortification of Sin and On Communion with God, she fell in love with everything Puritan and wrote her master's thesis on Calvin's and Owen's views of experiencing the Holy Spirit in prayer at Ambrose University (Calgary, AB). She is currently a PhD candidate in church history at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Kansas City, MO) and writes for historicaltheology.org. She and her husband run the youth and young adult ministries at Richmond Alliance Church, where JD serves as Associate Pastor.
