Richard Sibbes (1577-1635), one of the most influential figures in the Puritan movement during the earlier years of the
seventeenth century, was renowned for the rich quality of his ministry. 'The Bruised Reed' shows why he was known among
his contemporaries as 'the sweet dropper'.
'The Bruised Reed' is now issued for the first time in a smaller format in the Puritan Paperbacks series. Some of the
language and punctuation have been modernized to make the work more accessible.
