Last week the library was transformed as it hosted its first conference, Uncommon Devotion: Reflections on Puritan Texts! We were thrilled to welcome eight leading Puritan scholars from across the UK and North America to speak to a fully-booked conference, and were happy as well to honour J. I. Packer and James Houston for their pioneering work on the Puritans and for generously donating antiquarian books from their own collections to provide the seed for the library's growing collection of rare Puritan texts. Church for Vancouver provides a full recap here: Scholars Urge Us to Read The Pilgrim's Progress and Other Puritan Treasures.
