William Perkins (1558 – 1602) was a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a famous Cambridge theologian. He was one of the foremost leaders of the Puritan movement in the Church of England before the Westminster Assembly and was a mentor to such astute puritans as Jeremiah Burroughs. He was a celebrated divine who wrote voluminously on a number of important theological and practical topics including a number of works on God’s grace. The Works of William Perkins have not been published until now in these individual treatises.
This treatise is an echo of Scripture teaching how God’s will and man’s will work in their respective spheres. How do God and man relate concerning salvation? Perkins works from the text of Matthew 23:37-38.
It is designed to humble the creature in realizing that God’s free grace is that which enables man to believe the Gospel. And it also teaches that man’s free will is actually a slave to his desires. Perkin’s covers the will of God looking at both God’s sovereignty and God’s good pleasure in light of Jerusalem’s unwillingness to repent. He also covers the will of man in four important areas: in the garden before the fall, after the fall, in light of and after regeneration, and glorified in heaven.
