Referred to as the “Sweet Dropper” because of his consistently encouraging sermons, Richard Sibbes serves as an example of Puritan fervor balanced by centrist conformity in early Seventeenth Century England. Sibbes’s Calvinistic and Covenantal theological convictions, combined with his emphasis in “experimental” theology, distinguish him as a pastor in what has come to be known as the Puritan tradition; but (contrary to some previous historiographical presentations), Sibbes was no Separatist. This pastor serves as an example of pursuing a deeply principled ministry while seeking ecclesiastical unity.
