About Joseph Alleine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Alleine --------------------

Birth: 1634 Devizes Wiltshire, England Death: Nov. 17, 1668, England

from "Captive Faith - Prison Experience in Christian History":

"Joseph Alleine was the devoted pastor of Taunton. A non-conformist (that is one who rejected the practices of England's state church) he was driven from his pulpit when a restrictive law was enacted. Because he refused to be muzzled, traveling about preaching, he was thrown into prison. When released, he resumed preaching and went back to prison. This happened again and again. Finally he died, worn out, at the young age of 34. Friends buried him in Taunton.

Not one-sided, he was a loving husband to Theodosia Alleine, and a scientific thinker who associated with the founders of the Royal Society. He preached, prayed, wrote and pleaded with his contemporaries to follow Christ. His most famous work, "An Alarm to the Unconverted", also known as "The Sure Guide to Heaven", is still in print.

While in prison, Alleine penned a number of letters, exhorting his followers to a deeper walk with Christ."
