Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was one of the most highly esteemed nonconformist Puritans of his day, as well as being an extremely popular preacher for today’s Reformed and Christian audience via his works. Most of Thomas Watson’s works are in print. They are filled with sound doctrine, practical wisdom, and heart-searching application. He is one of the most well-known and quoted Puritans.
This book is a masterful selection of the best quotations drawn from Thomas Watson’s works. These quotes have been chosen with great care, and arranged under topical headings from “affliction” to “world”. This work forms an ideal introduction to the writings of Thomas Watson, and will prove to be rich devotional reading of the highest caliber. For those being introduced to the writings of the Puritans, or those who are already familiar with them, this devotional work will be a treasure to read again and again.
The reading of Puritan works has brought great benefit to the people of God across barriers of culture and time. Christians owe a great debt of gratitude to those faithful theologians, pastors and preachers who continue to speak through their writings even though they have long since entered into their heavenly rest in Christ. In these pages, the reader will find that Mr. Watson knew how to teach and apply God’s Word in the power of the Holy Spirit, and for the glorification of Jesus Christ, while maintaining a solid biblical orthodoxy needed in our day and age.
The purpose of this book is to open a door to the vast stores of biblical treasure and wisdom to be found in his writings and that it will stimulate further reading from his available works.
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.
