Henry Pendlebury (1626-1695) was a greatly beloved Puritan and esteemed theologian with great ministerial abilities. He was one of the most learned nonconformist Puritans of his day. This treatise on Christ's ascension is one of the best treatments of the subject in print. Pendlebury works from John 14:2, "I go to prepare a place for you," and demonstrates that these words are the living speech of a dying Christ to his dear apostles; and, in them, to all his people even to the end of the world. The doctrine which he expounds is that Jesus Christ is gone to heaven for all true believers. He went in their name, and his business was for their happiness. Christ must be seen as risen from the dead and ascending to the Father in order to send the Spirit to his people in power, and aid them in their spiritual walk here on earth. This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
