Steampunked #1

Big enough to frame if you open in new window. This is the first of 10 steampunked preachers of old. Prescheduled are Calvin, Luther, Pink, Matthew Henry, Jonathan Edwards, William Carey, John Knox, George Whitefield and John Bunyan. The last one will appear September 19th. Collect them all!
I am open for suggestions for the month of October, November or December.

P.S. - Someone saw me working on the Steampunk Pink (appearing September 10) and asked if I was making fun of him. IN NO WAY! I greatly admire and adore all these men! Steampunk is an art form that has recently intrigued me. It artistically promulgates someone who is a visionary yet embraces history. A person who is ahead of his time, in thought and action. So with all civility and respect, I present these steampunked exhibits of some of history's finest men.

    1. John Owen - how could I have forgotten him? He'll be the first of the second series for sure!

    1. Pastor Jack, thanks for the suggestions. Can't seem to find a decent picture of Turretin to work from but B.B.Warfield is a sure thing.

      I've also lined up Charles Hodge and Herman Bavinck for the month of October. I just need one more...

      ...and, of course, I still need five more for the month of November.

  5. The clock makes him look ahead of his time in giving a timeless message

    1. I like that.

      The clock = timeless

      The gears = intellection (the process of thinking)

  6. John Owen kicks off the second series on October 14, Columbus Day. It will be a five day event (I like that number). There will also be, Lord willing, a week in November and December as well. (I, for one, am enjoying doing these)
