A Puritan’s Mind Launches “The Puritan Shop” for Reformed eBooks andPuritan Downloads
 New Electronic eBook Shop Opens with Instant Downloading Capability for Reformed and Puritan Literature Bringing 17th Century Manuscripts Into the Modern Age
Coconut Creek, FL, March 29, 2012 --(PR.com)-- In 1998 A Puritan's Mind (www.apuritansmind.com
 
)launched one of the first Reformed and Puritan resources on the internet. It's grown today to be one of thelargest sources of 17th century literature on the planet. It was not designed to be a simple bibliographiclisting of where one could find Reformed and Puritan books, but actually be a resource housing thousandsof works, sermons, tracts and papers on Reformed Theology. In expanding the quality of the work accomplished by the site, A Puritan's Mind started Puritan Publications, the commercial publishing arm,to take key Puritan works and place them in hardback and paperback book form. This has naturallyprogressed into eBooks. With the rise of “electronic” reading, Puritan Publications and A Puritan's Mindhave launched The Puritan Shop,www.puritanshop.com. The founder of A Puritan's Mind, Dr. C.Matthew McMahon, said, “There are thousands of facsimile books of Puritan literature all over theinternet. But these books are not newly typeset versions of these works. They are scanned copies of theold English works themselves. Some of them are even scanned using OCR to turn them into a text form,but they are unreadable because OCR technology cannot intelligibly read these old works and convertthem into modern English. People are either left with reading a scan of an old English book (which isoften hard to read and understand already), or obtaining these works for themselves in an original copy,which is cost prohibitive since these works are hundreds of years old. Puritan Publications is taking theseworks and painstakingly typing select works out, reformatting them, and in some cases modernizingthem. These books are created both as physical books, and through the new Puritan Shop, as instantPuritan downloads and eBooks.”The Puritan Shop gives people the ability to read select Puritan downloads on their Kindle, iPad, iPhone,Android, or any other electronic device that has an electronic reader built in. The purpose of the PuritanShop was not to create long documents as unmanageable PDF files without a table of contents. Instead,these works are formatted as ePub and MOBI files that have a table of contents, can be accessed,bookmarked, and read easily. “We are extremely excited,” said McMahon, “about the ease of use with theshop, and the ability to have formatted, searchable and organized electronic documents of these oldReformed and Puritan works at our fingertips.”About A Puritan's Mind and Puritan PublicationsA Puritan's Mind is a Christian organization headquartered in Coconut Creek, Florida. Founded by C.Matthew McMahon in 1998, its mission is to bring the teachings of the Bible and the Gospel of JesusChrist as preached by the Reformers and Puritans to the entire planet in a unique online resource. APuritan's Mind is part of the RPCGA (Reformed Presbyterian Church General Assembly) denomination.
