The Bruised Reed (Richard Sibbes) Ratings: 0 - 0 votes


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.'

Of all Richard Sibbes' works, The Bruised Reed has probably had the most enduring impact. It is an exposition of Matthew's application to Jesus of the description of the Servant of the Lord in Isaiah 42:3 (Matt. 12:20). Sibbes ' wonderfully sensitive treatment has ministered to generations of Christians since its first publication in 1630.


'I shall never cease to be grateful to Richard Sibbes who was balm to my soul at a period in my life when I was overworked and badly overtired, and therefore subject in an unusual manner to the onslaughts of the devil . . . I found at that time that Richard Sibbes, who was known in London in the early seventeenth century as “The Heavenly Doctor Sibbes” was an unfailing remedy. The Bruised Reed . . . quieted, soothed, comforted, encouraged, and healed me.' — D. MARTYN LLOYD-JONES

'The Bruised Reed is not the only thing Sibbes wrote…but its themes and qualities well reflect the best of Sibbes' works that we have left to us. In them, Christ is central, his glory is great, his wrath is terrible, and his mercy is overwhelming.' — MARK DEVER
